Biweekly Update: 26 Weeks…2/3 of the Way!

Whoa…according to most sources I am technically in my third trimester starting next week which means Thing 3 is 2/3 of the way cooked! I will probably say this every update, but I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. I feel like Joe and I have been keeping pretty busy with friends, spending time with each other and …

Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

Sausage and Egg Quesadillas

I’m way past due for a recipe post! Before starting the Paleo diet, I almost always ordered quesadillas at Mexican restaurants. Now my go-to is usually fajitas, a salad or tacos with gluten-free corn tortillas on occasion. I found these awesome non-GMO, sprouted corn tortillas at our grocery store and devoured them. Unfortunately I haven’t seen them again! I look …

Biweekly Update: 24 Weeks

24 weeks

I honestly cannot believe another two weeks has flown by! Less than 4 months now until we get to meet Thing 3 and I’ll admit I definitely have my random mental freak out moments and am getting pretty anxious now that I’m almost 2/3 of the way through. I’m excited to have my registry pretty much completed and can’t wait …

Biweekly Update: 22 Weeks

It has been a great two weeks! We found out we are having a sweet baby boy! And we also went to South Padre Island, Texas for our official Babymoon vacation. It was a great time and I’m glad we were able to have our little weekend away. The beginning of this last week I was having some intense back …

Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Sweet Potato Fries

Joe introduced me to what we always called “fries with hamburger” when we first started dating. Basically it was a bag of frozen waffle fries cooked until crispy topped with cooked ground beef and shredded cheese, then broiled. It was delicious! I’ve mixed it up over the years and used the all-natural frozen sweet potato fries and added a few …

Also finally bought some new comfy/workout shorts in larger sizes since I was down …

The Best Bacon Hashbrowns and 20 Weeks!

Bacon Hashbrowns

Joe found this awesome recipe in Esquire magazine. I really didn’t change up the recipe much so they get all the credit for this one. And I guess Joe gets some credit for persuading me to make it! I believe you could sub sweet potatoes for this to make it more Paleo-friendly, however I haven’t personally tried it. My guess …

Biweekly Update: 18 Weeks

Have two weeks already gone by? I feel like some days time is flying by too fast and others it seems to crawl. I think the waiting to find out if we are having a boy or girl will start to wear on me! We have our “big” ultrasound on May 6 where we could find out the gender, however …

Asparagus and Bacon Quiche with Spaghetti Squash Crust

I’m obsessed with spaghetti squash (if you can’t tell by my growing collection of recipes that use it). It’s one of the simplest winter squashes to prepare. So much easier than butternut squash which you have to peel and chop before cooking. I can put a whole spaghetti squash in the oven for about 45 minutes to an hour, and …

Biweekly Update: 16 Weeks

I’ll still be adding additional pregnancy/baby related posts and also recipes and health tips like usual. How far along: 16 weeks Total weight gain: ~3-4 lbs. Maternity clothes: …
