Sorry I haven’t written part two of my labor story…I have left you hanging. But this weekend has been non stop!
Saturday was an AWESOME day! I started out with a run- 4 miles in 33:30- less than a month after having Gabriella! I feel like I’ve got my running mojo back ;) Usually I take G with me in the jogging stroller, but yesterday since Craig was home he said he would watch her while I went running. It was kind of weird not having the stroller…but nice- it’s tough running with a stroller!
Once I got home I was able to take a shower & shave my legs….you have to understand it’s the little things that make SUCH a difference with a newborn :D So to have Craig on baby duty so that I could have some free time was really nice.
The rest of my Saturday was spent hanging out with G, cleaning, cooking dinner, then hanging out with Craig when G went down for a nap.
Today was BUSY BUSY BUSY!! Craig’s office has their holiday breakfast tomorrow & people from his group pay me to bake a bunch of breakfast items because they know how much I love baking…and it’s easier for them :)
So right when I got up I got to work in the kitchen- I knew I would have minimal time between watching G, feeding G & trying to get all of the items baked…so it was go time right away!
Here are the items that I made:
Cranberry Bliss Bars (by my lovely twin, Liz…not really my twin…it’s a long story. :) )
Andes Mint Cookie Bars- used the recipe on the back of the Andes Mint chips (near the chocolate chips)- but made them into bars into of cookies.
I have had this before & it’s REALLY good!! I decided to make it into a bundt cake instead of using two loaf pans. I had not iced it yet ..only because I will ice it in the morning before Craig takes it in. You know glaze doesn’t really look good the next day.
Triple Berry Coffee Cake – a recipe that I have made for the past three years for his office. This is always a request :)
I am also making a monkey bread in the morning- I’m sure you all know what that looks like.
Because I was making all of this, I had to taste test each recipe just to make sure everything tasted ok ;) I can honestly tell you that I HIGHLY recommend ANY of the recipes above! Hopefully they will all be a hit with his co workers as well!
Gotta say I definitely don’t mind spending an entire day in the kitchen…in fact I love it! :D
As you can see, I’ve had a busy, but wonderful weekend! It’s also fun to see how much Gabriella is growing- I tell her to slow down everyday. Lately she has been ROCKING her ‘tummy time!’ This girl is a pro!
She’s been holding her head up for over a minute & she is just so alert- I love it!
I hope you all had a great weekend as well- hard to believe it’s already December! I promise that part two of my labor story will be coming very soon!! :)
