I’m not going to lie when I tell you that I’m feeling a little bit uncomfortable in the past few days. Â I’m not sure how much longer I’m going to be pregnant. Â Your guess is as good as mine. Â I guess I’ll just relax and wait for little Aiden to decide he wants to meet me as bad as I want to meet him.
It’s that time again this week… Friday Favorites.
Favorite kitchen accessory.Â Heart bowls from Etsy. Â Are these not the cutest bowls you’ve ever seen?! Â I love them. Â I don’t even know if I would use them to eat out of if I got them.
Favorite indulgence.Â Chocolate chip cookie dough brownie bombs. Â As Hayley puts it, “Talk about the ultimate indulgence. Sometimes, the decision between fudgy, gooey brownies or chewy, buttery chocolate chip cookies is one Iâ€™m not willing to make. Itâ€™s not fair to either rejected party when I both want them so equally, and love them both so much. So I fixed the problem with a decadent chocolate/cookie dough bomb that melts in your mouth and tastes AWESOME.” Â I wouldn’t mind trying these either!
Favorite cute idea.Â Candy sushi. Â Where has this idea been for the past 9 months of not eating sushi?! Â This might have even done the trick for me in lieu of the real thing (a totally different flavor, but just as tasty I would imagine). Â The “rice” is rice krispie treats, the fish is swedish fish and the “seaweed” is fruit rollups.
Favorite seasonal idea.Â Easter flowers. Â I can’t believe Easter is so early this year. Â It’s literally almost upon us (or will be before we know it). I anticipate my March flying by with family visiting and having a new baby. Â I love the floral choices in this arrangement and the using the eggs as a filler adds a nice festive touch.
Favorite “light” dessert.Â Easy fruit trifle. Â I’m really in the mood for juicy fruits lately, so this looks really appetizing to me! Â On top of that, it contains banana cream pudding among a few other ingredients. Â This would be perfect for the summer!
Favorite “healthy” dessert. Â Paleo chocolate chip cookies. Â These little babies contain no flour and are perfectly acceptable for the paleo community and/or gluten free folks. Â They don’t have any dairy in them either (which is paleo I guess).
Favorite ice cream/mousse recipe.Â Chocolate coconut ice cream/mousse. Â This recipe can double as either ice cream or mousse depending on the method of preparation. Â It contains no dairy either. Â I have realized that I absolutely cannot tolerate dairy. Â It makes me bloated and have terrible heartburn and digestive issues. Â Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s just a pregnancy issue because I was tested for sensitivity last Spring and I was highly sensitive to it. Â I’ve been eating Chobani greek yogurt lately and it definitely doesn’t agree with me. Â No one should eat dairy anyways, so it’s just as well. Â With recipes like this, we don’t need cow’s milk anyway.
Favorite drink recipe.Â Raspberry peach lemonade. Â This simple recipe contains only four ingredients – agave nectar, peaches, raspberries and lemon juice! Â Perfecto.
Favorite DIY project for Spring.Â Cheerful doormat. I love all the colors of this mat and how cheerful it is! Â It reminds me that Spring is right around the corner and that should bring some rain! YAY!
Okay there we have it for the Friday Favorites. Â If any of you make any of these things each week, let me know! Â I don’t make all of them although I try some of them. Â There’s just too many:)
With that said, I’m on labor watch all weekend which may or may not drive me insane. Â Every twinge I think it’s it. Â One of these times, it will be though!
Have a great weekend!
