Five on Friday!

The weekend is here! The weekend is here! On the agenda...a 2 hour prenatal massage followed by a mani/pedi date with a girlfriend on Saturday. And if I'm not too noodle-like afterwards I plan to finish packing the hospital bag, take pictures of our finished nursery and bake, of course!
 
On to the 5...
 
 - ONE - New favorite dessert alert! This week we ate extra light dinners just so we could splurge on banana sundaes for dessert. For our masterpiece, I start with pineapple Greek frozen yogurt, add sliced bananas, sugar-free caramel syrup and top it all off with sprinkles and cherries. I only have a few more weeks with an excuse to really indulge so I'm taking advantage of it.
- TWO - Earlier this week we took "Parenting 101" at the hospital. We had pretty low expectations but the 3 hour class proved to be super helpful. Matt and I walked away with tons of information (that we definitely did not know before) about sleep, diapering tips, tummy time, swaddling, bathing, feeding, etc.! As you can see, never a dull moment in class with Matt...
 - THREE - The bath tub is my absolute happy place these days. Pre-pregnancy I was a quick 20 minute bath taker. Now I can soak to the point where Matt gets worried and comes to check on me. The tub is really the only place I can relax without back pain so it's my new favorite place to check my email, blog, etc.
- FOUR - It's the Masters weekend, which means the hubs will be out playing his annual round of Masters golf with the guys and grilling out afterwards. Earlier this week the cutest "Sweet Tee" golf layette arrived in the mail from Baby Aspen and Matt could not have been more excited about it so we made a deal. If Caroline makes an early debut during the Masters tournament, she can come home from the hospital in it instead of the outfit I already have picked out. 
 
(Shhh, don't tell him that there is no possible way she'll fit into a 0-3 month outfit at birth.)
  And speaking of cute outfits, you can never have enough sleep sacks, right mamas? I owe a huge thank you to Personal Creations for sending me the cutest custom Halo sleep sack! If you're looking for a unique personalized gift for someone special, check out their website. They have lots of cute items.
- FIVE - Just in case any of you are judging me for my sundaes, I thought I'd mention that my Post-Pregnancy workout DVD came in the mail this week! I know I won't have much time to work out during maternity leave so I froze my gym membership and hope to squeeze in quick sessions with my girl Tracy in the comfort of my living room.

  4. Those banana splits look yummy! Loving that you used pineapple frozen yogurt!:) Since you are quite the bath pro, when you get a chance, could you share some of your favorite bathtime products? I always get overwhelmed when I look at stores like Bath&Body Works, and then don't know what in the world to buy!!!

  13. Those sundaes look so delicious! I haven't had ice cream in a couple months and that is seriously tempting me! I've never done a Tracy Anderson workout but I've heard great things from a few friends that have them. Enjoy your massage {2 hours!!!} and have a fabulous weekend. : )

  16. No way am I judging you for the sundae! I thought you restrained yourself... I would have had full fat ice cream in there! Have a great weekend!

  17. Umm your sundaes look beyond amazing. And the only thing that I was judging was that you are using the Greek Yogurt version!!! That's like way too healthy ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anyone who judges a pregnant woman for having a sundae is just not cool. I think it's great you have a plan for getting back into shape though!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hahahaha! I'm pretty sure my husband would be the one in the class picking the baby up by the leg to be funny. Men...good thing they make it fun ;)

  20. Love that you snapped the photo with his hand covering the babies face! hehe It will be awesome to see my husband attempt a diaper and a swaddle!

  22. A bubble bath sounds amazing! ANd crazy to think baby girl could appear during the Masters...that sounds like a bet my future hubs and I would have to make too. Boys and their golf...goodness! Enjoy your pampering pretty girl...you deserve it! xx.

  23. I love the lower calorie version of the sundae! Totally worth the splurge! Have a great weekend!

  24. I'm all for a light dinner and big late night snack. Yum yum! Your husband's initial swaddle attempt gave me a good chuckle. Hopefully he'll remember his new technique. ;) Enjoy that amazing sounding weekend... I'm not currently pregnant, but I might try to replicate. haha Thanks for the link-up. // Mary @ A Mama Collective

  25. What a cute outfit for Caroline! She'll be the cutest baby girl on the block in it. We used sleep sacks like it was our job. They're a great invention. We loved our baby preparation class. The swaddling lesson was really helpful too -- we still had no idea what we were doing, but it was nice having some directions to go from!

  28. Oh, that bath looks and sounds delightful. I'm the same way. I was never much of a bath taker, but while pregnant, I loved taking baths. It was so relaxing and felt great on my achy body.
