So I came home from work and I had a package on my porch – it was from my sister, and it was like 10 seedlings of all sorts of vegetables. Might sound like a strange gift but they were all organic and from a local farmer so all I had to do was plant them and then reap the harvest. Tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and lots of herbs- it was fantastic and so great of my sis to give me such a great birthday present. (oh yeah we have the same birthday – even thought we are born 4 years apart)
So then I go to Dr. Ronald Rasi’s office. I actually love going there. I have said that before but it’s so true. Everyone there is so sweet and funny and just great. So I got some new trays for my Invisaligne and get this, I am already on tray 8- I feel like my teeth are more loose since I got pregs and these “braces” are keeping them in check! click here for all the info on Dr. Ronald Rasi!
Anyway so I leave there and go to OSH to get some plant stuff like compost and soil and all sorts of fun things like that. I take it home and honestly I felt like I had no idea what to do. So I googled how to plant these items and wa-la they look great! Lets just hope they grow grow grow!
Later I made some ya ya yum steak on the grill and had a salad. Did you know pregnant girls need to have 60 grams of protein a day! Yikes! That sounds like a lot cus it is! Honestly though, space is getting more and more cramped in there (belly) and I feel like I can’t eat as much as I should.
Oh and one last thing this will make me look like a hippie for sure but these rattles are so cool
wooden rattle
So they aren’t the normal plastic colorful rattles you see at stores but at least you know it can’t hurt your kid – it’s made of a tree! lol.
what items do you love? what websites have great babies stuff. Email me or comment!

work it out

Can I just tell you how much I love comcast for the SOLE reason that they have these great baby bod work outs. They have one thats called Second Tri baby and it’s like 13 minutes of really great stretching and weights and exercise ball work outs. Its just enough to make you feel like you’re working out but you aren’t working yourself into a hot lather. (this picture made me laugh only because this woman is taking her workouts to a new level.)

this is not a suggested workout for most pregnant women!

I have gotten some GREAT emails from some moms-to-be and I am so excited for everyone. So I gotta ask what, if any, kind of workouts are you doing while you are pregs? Or to any of you moms out there that did some great work outs while pregnant I would love to hear from you too!

I keep getting asked if it’s a boy or girl and to that question I say “I don’t know yet”. We find out soon and when I find out EVERYONE will know.

So thanks for all the warm words and encouraging emails…it means a lot!!!



5 things your mother in law won’t admit to you

My mother in law lives in Seattle and honestly there isn’t really anything she would NOT tell me if I asked. But either way I saw this article and thought it was interesting. My one friend gets along better with her mother in law better than her own mom. Do you get along with your mother in law?

1. He’ll treat you the same way he treats me. If your guy calls his mom every day, chances are he’s likely to check in with you just as much. But if a man forgets his mom’s birthday, don’t expect there to be many flowers and boxes of chocolate for you either. (Honestly I remember Brandons mom’s birthday way better than he does, but he would be a dead man if he forgot mine.)

2. I’m ready for you to have children even if you’re not. From the moment your man left home, she’s been craving the opportunity to hold a little baby and be a grandma. (THIS is totally true cus my mother in law loves being “grandma”…I think she likes it more than being parents to be honest with you!)
3. If you leave me alone in your house, I’m going to snoop. Bedrooms may be off limits but the kitchen is fair game. Don’t stock your fridge with frozen dinners unless you’re prepared to be judged. (My in-laws just stayed with us in March and I think they were more shocked by the LACK of food in the fridge! I usually only grocery shop for that days meals)

4. I care about your sex life. This has less to do with having a baby and more to do with the fact that good sex means a healthy marriage. She may not want to hear all the details but she cares about her boy’s happiness just as much as you do. (this shocked me)

5. He loves you more than me. You are the center of your man’s world right now. He put a rock on your finger that proves he’s yours. Your mother-in-law sees the way he looks at you and knows that deep down, he’s left her for good. (Yeah either Brandon loves me, or he just REALLY hated living in Seattle, he does always complain about the weather up there…lol)


Tomorrow starts the beginning of our annual Radio-thon with the UC Davis Children Hospital. The event is so moving. Such small little babies with such enormous strength, and the parents! WOW. My heart goes out to them and I know that the UC Davis CH does awesome things in saving babies lives. So if you can give 5 dollars or 50 dollars every little bit counts, and THANK YOU ahead of time.
