What Italy tastes like + almost there!

39 weeks + 2 days, and baby’s the size of a…

39 plus weeks

We’re expecting lots of storms this week, which, according to my nurse, make pregnant women “drop like flies.” We’re ready when you are, little dude!

Our friends are ready, too. We had a little get-together last night, and celebrated the two biggest upcoming events with this cookie:


Yes, that’s babies (my good friend Kyla is due a few weeks after me):

Ky and I

Who says giant cookies have to be reserved for birthdays and graduations??

I didn’t get to indulge, since I’m avoiding dairy right now. However, I decided to make an exception for goat cheese, which made this amazing triangle-shaped grilled pizza possible:


Fresh vine tomatoes, basil, goat cheese, sausage, seasonings, a light layer of pizza sauce and a drizzle of balsamic, all on Trader Joe’s pizza crust. OMG.

This is what I assume Italy tastes like.

No lie: best pizza I’ve ever had.

Also: we’re officially obsessed with grilling pizza. Thanks for the inspiration, Presley and Madeline! < click for Madeline’s how to!

Of course, a weekend wouldn’t be a weekend without some pics of my boys.


I LOVE it when he reads to himself…


I was five feet away, holding my breath.

Sneaking in a few pictures with my boy as an only child, while we still have the chance…


(Lesson learned about toddlers: watermelon eating should be done shirtless.)

Could that be the LAST one?? Stay tuned! Smile

Hope you have a great week.

I’ve been thinking about you wondering if today would be the day. So close! I agree, toddlers and watermelon need to be shirtless. For that and anything with chocolate. What is it about chocolate that kids get EVERYWHERE!

Love the first picture! You look great! It always made me laugh when I got to the point where baby is the size of a watermelon. Especially remembering back to the first trimester when baby was the size of a blueberry.

I can’t wait to hear that baby has arrived! Good luck with what is hopefully you’re last few days!

You’re so close!! I’m hoping that storm rumor’s true, because we’re expecting them, too, this week :)

Eeek! Getting so excited for you! Any day now. :) We’re a huge fan of grilling pizzas too. It happens nearly once every week around here!
