recap is here

It is back to school time! Which means, busy, busy, busy, in our world. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, just the way August rolls. I haven't even thought about taking a weekly picture or anything! This week has been full of blessings. I had a very sweet surprise shower from my spin class last Monday, the doctor is saying it could be go time any day, my sister got ENGAGED (semi old news, that was the 11th, but I'm still so excited!), we celebrated Luke's 15 years of being on staff with YL, we have a car seat in my car, I think I'm done running (kind of sad), and our nursery is pretty much done! I mean that is a lot to recap on, but those are all pretty great things! I will say this, having a car seat in my car is hard for me to get use to in my rearview mirror. I teach my last spin class tomorrow; I'm sure some people in my class are just glad they won't have to deliver a baby! Less than 2 more weeks till we meet sweet Jewel... or maybe sooner?!
Hey Jewel! 38 weeks

a chair to read a million books

I know I haven't really posted very many nursery pictures, but they are soon to come. The room is practically done; I just haven't taken out time to take pictures! Whoops. I do have to show you this before after of our glider. Patti stumbled upon this deal steal at an antique store in Atlanta for $25. I'm sorry, what?! Yes, $25. After a good sanding, a long paint job, and new cushions this little glider should do the trick! Thank you Aaron and Patti! 

I swear, there is a book for anything and everything. Just look at this selection. I don't know whether to be embarrassed or laugh unashamed. I have to say I didn't purchase any of these books. They were either gifts or our doula, Holly, lent them to me from her library. I can't imagine a book fully preparing you for birth or motherhood, especially since every birth and child is different, but in some weird way I feel semi prepared. I can say, The Yummy Mummy Manifesto was entertaining and had great info, and The Baby Book is dictionary of anything and everything (clearly, look at how huge that book is!). Just in case someone out there needs to know something about these just ask me! Happy Wednesday!

salmon every week, hasn't gotten old

I think we've had salmon every week for the past 6 weeks. I can't resist the good deal on wild caught salmon that Kroger has. I think this recipe has really become one of Aaron and I's favorite. My only suggestion is to not just make a cut long ways in the back but to make a large X and then stuff it with the herbs. The herbs are so good you'll wish you had. I have a feeling you're going to like it! Click HERE for the tasty recipe.
