Thursday Thoughts

Unfortunately, this weekend is my birthday, and a big one. I told John I didn’t want to do anything because, truly, I’m not a birthday person, and I’m the least excited about this birthday than I have been for the last 29.

He read between the lines and understood that doing nothing actually meant going to Chicago!! I can’t wait to visit the baby’s godmamma’s new bakery, By The Park, have a birthday drink at POPS (I hope that’s on the itinerary, John!), maybe a class at Flywheel and take the baby to see the giant Christmas tree at Macy’s.

Some Thoughts

Sometimes I miss being pregnant and working out. Even if I ran for twenty minutes and had to walk half of it, I always felt like I accomplished something huge.

Found a winding trail on our run that led to waterfront mansions and wooden docks over the marsh.

I’ve been craving Greek food, specifically spanakopita. I made a whole casserole dish of it this week then realized I had actually been craving baklava. Not the same.

I really need some new recipe inspiration. When I asked John if he liked the spanakopita, he said there were a lot of leftovers.

I always do treats in stockings. Last year, I filled John’s stocking with Newman’s chocolate peanut butter cups (which he said do NOT taste like Reese’s), beer and snacks for our Christmas trip. So what do I put in the baby’s stocking?  She has so much stuff! Puréed carrots? She’s going to hate Christmas.

This weekend is the Army/Navy game. I’m not an Army or Navy fan, but the Army/Navy game a few years ago was one of the most epic days of my 20’s. My friend and I wore Go Army shirts to a Navy bar (where months later I would meet my future Navy husband). That obviously went terribly, but we love rooting for the wrong team (and we love to bring up that time the Patriots were 18-1). That same friend is surprising me (ok, not a surprise, she totally ruined the surprise because I obviously know about it and that’s why she’s one if my best friends) by coming to Chicago this weekend and I’m SO excited!

    Happy Birthday to you! I know what you mean about not being a birthday celebrating person since I am one as well and my birthday falls in December as well!

    Aw happy birthday! My fiance’s 30th birthday was last month and lemme tell you, he was also not looking forward to it XD I’m sad I missed the Navy / Army game, but your bar experience sounded fun, hehe.
