Food Blog Day 3

Thursday, May 17, 2012      15 comments

Well I finished Week 5 of C25K and it went well! Definitely finding it easier this go-around, so I'm glad that all of my fitness didn't disappear during my pregnancy. Immediately after the 20-minute run, I started feeling sniffly and that turned... Read more

Less than a week til my due date! It's really hit home that she could be with us any day now, but yes, it is kind of annoying that I don't know what Christmas has in store this year: Will I be in the hospital? At home waiting it out? Or at home ... Read more
