i'm so making this today. it won't be as pretty because i don't have a springform pan nor any circular baking pan, actually, but it's ok. i have a ton of fuji apples in my fridge and need to use them in something.
the red dress was too structured for my belly and i was totally joking about the bra top. totally.
i stared at the lucite heels for a good while before deciding i wouldn't buy them. i talked myself out of it like 'what the hell. you're pregnant. you can't wear these now. your feet will probably grow or shrink. and it'll be all for naught.'
the oversized sweater made me look like furry oompa so that was a no. this dress was a contender but ultimately i decided i wouldn't know where to wear it to.
hubs and i went to the mumford & sons concert at the hollywood bowl last night and can i just tell you. i'm not a fan of stacked parking. it's a bitch when you're tired and just want to get home but can't because the cars in front of you and behind you and on both sides of you WON'T MOVE.
but the boys were grand and it was worth it. even on a monday night.
it's now mid morning and i should be getting my ass over to trader joes to shop for dinner and meals for the rest of the week. but i've been lounging on the couch for close to 3 hours and can't get myself to even wash my face or change out of my pjs. i just want to do nothing.
that said, i thought back to this quick and easy lunch i made last week to get myself motivated. it was exactly what i wanted - healthy and delish. tip: salmon from tj's is fab.
and in our house, sriracha is a staple. can you tell.
*marinated baked salmon with white rice and broccoli with sesame shitake dressing.*
i know nail art is the new lipstick but still. i want some bomb lipstick. the best lipstick i have is a bright red matte color from revlon. that my friend gave me for free because she got it for free after the revlon run/walk. approximately 5 years ago.
so now i'm on the prowl. any tips on where to get these colors? any brand faves? i haven't shopped for lipstick in 15 years. i'm shy.
anyways. hubs asked what i wanted for christmas this year and i started rattling off a lo0o0o0o0ong list of to-dos, rainchecked for post baby.
sushi. like i want sushi. so bad.
wine tasting (anywhere, i don't care). i want to drink.
start running together. i want to sweat.
and so on and so forth.
blah blah - all things i want to do right now but can't. so given what i want, he said he'd give me a coupon book of 10 things i could redeem whenever however. and we would agree on the 10 things together. normally i'd think something like this was cheesy. but crave something and then hold back for 9 months. and then tell me how you feel.
i have all these random squares leftover from when i created this board [pre-preggo project. and yes, everything in my life is now categorized as pre-preggo, whilst-preggo, and eventually post-preggo. just the way it is.] i exacto-knifed 48 squares from a thickish matte board to create the frame for each 3x3 picture. it was hell.
at the end of it all, i was left with 48 square cutouts [and without feeling in my fingies] and didn't want to just throw away my blood, sweat and tears. so i've kept them for all these months waiting for the perfect project.
lo and behold, i found the answer when i googled something like 'paint project diy squares'.
this was done with paint swatches. i plan to watercolor each of my squares to get a similar effect.
