A Post too Random to be Properly Titled

Spring has sprung in NYC and I don’t think anybody is happier about that than me (and Ob).

Image 8The trees are still dead, but the grass is green and flowers are being planted. Hooray!

Image 9Every time I see the flowers blooming in Central Park or Riverside Park I think they are Mother Nature’s way of apologizing to me about all the snow/ice/Polar Vortexes we experienced this winter. It is like Mother Nature is offering the flowers to us northerners as a token of her apology for being a real ***** this winter. I haven’t totally forgiven her, but the flowers are helping.ย โ†ย These are the random things I think about when I’m walking the dogs and I don’t have anyone to talk to besides Atlas.

We took full advantage of the spring weather today. I took Atlas for a 4 mile run and it was the hardest run of my life.

Image 5The wind was out of control and I somehow managed to run against it for 85% of the run. But, I got to run in a tank top and shorts so I’m not complaining about the added challenge. I’m just so incredibly grateful I got to get outside and run. 9 months of being pregnant + 4 months of winter will do that to you.

After our 4 mile run, we leashed up Ob & Marley for a 3 mile walk through Central Park. I say, “we” but I really mean “I.” Atlas isn’t much help. He just giggles and kicks his feet.

I rounded out the day by making some baby food to last Atlas for a few days. We both drank some homemade green juice today. In that mix is spinach, watermelon and baby oatmeal. I ended up making too much, so I drank what Atlas didn’t eat. I do that a lot these days. I make his baby food and whatever I don’t freeze or feed him, I eat myself. Is that gross? Probably. I hate wasting food though and I know his food is healthy so it is good for him and me.

Image 7And because I can’t leave you with that disgusting photo featured above, here is a photo of my birthday cake – as promised.

What I think I liked even more than my birthday cake was this though…

momofuku cake testingDave got me the Momofuku cake testing package so I could try aaaallll the cakes and try them all I did (except for the carrot cake – I don’t need my veggies creeping into my dessert). I think the strawberry lemon one was my favorite. Or maybe the banana. The German chocolate piece of cake and I could have had something really special, but there were coconut flakes involved and I despise all things coconut.

Except for coconut oil. I’m on that bandwagon now. Did I tell you guys that? Flipping love that stuff. I’m a fan of the oil pulling.

And on that totally random note, I’m off to bed. Goodnight, friends!


  1. Love that cute picture if Atlas. Just a FYI. The trees are not still dead, just dormant. Like a bear sleeping through the winter. It is an adaptation that helps them survive the long winter with no leaves which make the food for the tree.

  2. What a wonderful pic of Atlas holding a pic of you and my fav other mother bear, Ms Christy ๐Ÿ™‚ Love it.
    I love the fact that you are eating the baby food… no shame in that at all! Thanks for making me laugh this morning and for sharing your random thoughts ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxo

  3. Oh my goodness – that cake tasting package – drool. And your birthday cake. YUM. Can I come live with you? Running and eating cake is sorta my thing, so I think we would get along good together. I’ll bring Luke and he can keep Atlas entertained while we eat cake. ๐Ÿ˜‰
