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).
Every 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. ← 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.
The 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.
What I think I liked even more than my birthday cake was this though…
Dave 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!
