Weekend Links / / Piles of Laundry

Jordan and I arrived home very late on Wednesday night. Our laundry pile might be out of control, but there is watermelon and La Croix in the fridge and lasagna defrosting for dinner. I made a very smart (unintentional) decision to wait a few days before going back to work. This isn’t always an option but is so helpful, especially in the third trimester. It gives me extra time for all our laundry. 😉

Yesterday, was my glucose test and here’s to hoping I passed! The drink was rather disgusting, especially since the last thing I wanted to consume after a long vacation was added sugar. Afterwards, I scheduled appointments for the remainder of this pregnancy. WHAT?! I can’t believe we are approaching the finish line.

Onto the links!

Lemon, Tomato and Feta Coodies (aka Zoodles) / / Just one more reason why I need a spirilizer. In the summer I like making light pasta dishes with simple ingredients, but having vegetable noodles makes eating a second bowl practically encouraged.

I Don’t Want Kids, Am I Bad? / / I really appreciated Helene’s vulnerability in sharing this post. We place a lot of societal expectations not only on ourselves but on those around us. The pressure to please oftentimes causes us to second guess our instincts. Having children shouldn’t be a given for all adults and one shouldn’t have to feel less than for choosing what might be considered an “alternative” path.

The 10 Items You Should Always Pack for a Trip / / Isn’t it fun to see what others consider travel necessities? For our road trip I packed fairly well except for being a little cold in San Francisco. I wish I would have read Megan’s list because I would have added a sweater!

Tips for Finding (and applying) That Perfect Foundation / / My skin tone has always been fairly even. Unfortunately, adult acne has left behind some red marks that are rather challenging to cover up. I recently fell in love with IT Cosmetics CC Cream and their under eye concealer but I don’t think my application method is always the most effective.

H&M Maternity Jean Shorts / / I bought maternity shorts from ASOS prior to leaving for California but didn’t wear them beforehand. I was sorely disappointed when on the first day the side seam began splitting! While in Sacramento we stopped in H&M because this location had a maternity section. I found the most comfortable pair of maternity shorts. If your H&M has maternity I highly suggest checking out their denim.

Happy Weekend, all!

  1. The glucose test sounds like one of the worst things they make you go through during pregnancy, ha! I’ve heard so many people talk about how awful and too sweet it was. Yuck!

    1. Thankfully, it’s only 10 oz. Its tough too because you have to drink it within 5 minutes so you’re basically chugging extra sweet Gatorade! I’m just hoping I passed so I don’t have to go back.

  2. I hope your glucose test came back negative!!! It’s so exciting that you’re getting so far along in your pregnancy! It won’t be too long until your little one is here!

  3. The trip sounded amazing, but home sweet home is always the best 🙂 And yes, you do need a spiralizer! And I think I need to try that recipe with mine.
