What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! Today is a very happy Wednesday because it is also my Friday! I am loving that I am heading out tomorrow to join Bond for a mini "babymoon", which for those who don't know is a vacation before baby arrives, the last one you may get for quite some time! Here is what else I am loving this week...

I'm loving... The lyric theater's first production in the summer series, Bye Bye Birdie. I have never seen it live and just loved it!

I'm loving... This cute arrangement one of my coworkers received, it's a puppy plant!


I'm loving... My Pinterest finds this week

Isn't his fruit and cheese plate a great idea for July 4th!
I'm loving... As always my wonderful husband! Can't wait to see him tomorrow!!

Baby Vincent Update: week 26

All is good at the Vincent home. We are into week 26 and still feel pretty good. I am starting to feel too large to do some things, like bend at some angles, but I can do pretty much everything else.

I am on my own this week, but only until Thursday when I join Bond in San Fransico for a mini baby moon. I am very excited, especially because I get to see one of my best friends that recently moved out there. Since I am on my own I had to improvise a picture this week, and it is in a new OU shirt!

We have an appointment next Thursday, so that will probably be my next update as well. If you don't visit again before then have a great 4th of July!

Menu Monday

Happy Monday! I am not doing much cooking this week because Bond is out of town and I have a short week as well. I am going to stay on the healthy side, but mostly quick and easy meals. Happy planning...


Monday - make your own tacos with my sister's homemade pico! I will use refried black beans, spinach, pico, and a small amount of grated cheese.

Tuesday - I have a late meeting and tickets to a musical at the civic center, so I will pack a sandwich and some fruit to eat on the go.

Wednesday - something easy and light, maybe finishing off any leftovers, or even scrambled egg whites with veggies, toast, and fruit. I love breakfast for dinner!

I leave town Thursday morning to join Bond for the weekend, so my wonderful sister and BIL will be eating at our house the rest of the week and probably cooking much more than I plan too! more on that in this weeks baby update :)

What are you cooking up this week?

Fill in the Blank Friday

Happy Friday! I have a short work day today due to the A/C man and a plumber, but get to have dinner out with my wonderful husband tonight so I think its a pretty good start to the weekend.

This weeks blank is only one word...

Summer is hot temperatures, but ice cream, work weeks that drag, but more hours of daylight, sunscreen, but at the pool and lake, miserable heat and exhaustion, but a healthy baby boy in the fall!

I hope you are having a wonderful summer, with the good and the bad! Happy Friday :)

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! I wasn't able to post earlier today but I am loving a lot this week.


I'm loving... The neutropenia naturals Chapstick! I am addicted to Chapstick and this one is great. It has a great silky feel and a wonderful minty flavor without as intense as Burt's Bees.

I'm loving... My Pinterest finds for this week. I found some great recipes I need to try. I am in a rut for recipes and really need some new ideas.

I'm loving... As always my wonderful husband! Last weekend we went to a murder mystery bed and breakfast in Guthrie Oklahoma. It was set in 1948 and was so much fun! I highly recommend you try one in your area.

We are into week 25. I should have done an update post yesterday but I was too tired...oh well.

I am feeling good and lots of kicks! He is getting stronger each day.


I am eating a lot of sandwiches. Peanut butter and jelly and meat and cheese, plus some spinach and tomato...yum! Subway is also my friend lately :)

We have our next appointment next two weeks from tomorrow!

Tuesday - whole wheat pasta with chicken sausages and artichoke hearts

Wednesday - we have tentative plans for dinner out with the summer associate from Bond's office

Thursday - something easy... Frozen pizza maybe

Friday - we are planning a date night! It maybe an at home date night with a rental and in that case probably Mexican food.

Baby Vincent Update: week 24

We are almost through 6 months, it is going so fast, mostly because we have been so busy!

We had a marathon weekend in Tulsa for Liz and Scott's wedding. It we beautiful, but I was so physically exhausted, I had no idea being a bridesmaid pregnant would make me sleep for two days!

As you can see I will soon have to start taking pictures in different clothes! These are barely fitting, no not too comfortably.

We haven't really started on the nursery, but we have decided to go with a Winnie the pooh theme, using the classic pooh bear. My wonderful sister is sewing most of it so I need to get the fabric picked out and the furniture bought pronto! I think a carseat is the only other purchase we will make before our shower in August!

I have an appointment tomorrow so watch for another brief update!

I'm loving... That the Thunder lead the series going into game 6 tonight in OKC!

Baby Vincent Update : Week 23

We are into week 23. I am feeling great and feeling Baby Grant a lot!

One exciting thing that happened over the weekend was Bond got to feel Baby Grant move too. After the Thunder win on Saturday we watched a movie and he was moving all around, then I thought I felt him on the outside and Bond did not have to wait long to confirm. I was so happy Bond got to be there!

I am eating fruit and hard boiled eggs for my snacks at work. They travel well and are filling.

I am feeling great! My weight is on the high side, but I am sticking with smart food choices and exercising 5-6 days a week. Sometimes it's elliptical or yoga, or like last Saturday when Bond took me to the zoo and we walked for 3 hours, and got to see the baby elephant!

Our next appointment is Wednesday July 13th so stay tuned!
