John and I have been having quit the nice little weekend and I wanted to share some of yesterday with you. We woke up and decided to combine the dogs morning walk with a visit to the farmers market. It was beautiful here yesterday in Santa Monica and even early it was nice and warm. Usually on weekends we rush to get the dog out on her walk and John is usually anxious to get things going which means I usually leave the house in yoga pants and no makeup so it was nice to be able to quickly ready myself for the day before heading out. We took a nice long family stroll in the sunshine (taking a few photos along the way)
my dress is from H&M Maternity.
Once at the farmers market we each got a fresh baked pastry and a cup of coffee. Then Peeps and I posted up under a tree and waited for John to grab some brunch ingredients (puppies are not allowed in the farmers market).
This photo makes my dress look scandelously short but I think it’s just that half of it is obscured by my giant belly. haha.
Speaking of my giant belly it really is quit charming how sweet total strangers can be about a pregnancy! I cant believe how many sweet people chatted with us and congratulated us on the baby. When we got our coffee the clerk asked when we were due and high fived John when we told him it was a boy. Walking home, a tough guy on a bicycle yelled “Congratulations guys!” as he passed and a woman we cross who was also walking her dog asked if this was our first, told us we were cute and said “enjoy it, it goes soo fast”. It’s really amazing how even total strangers get excited about the birth of a baby and I love how it can bring people together.
When we got back to the house John re-created a favorite dish from our favorite breakfast spot Huckleberry. And we took out into the back yard to enjoy a leisurely brunch in the yard.
In case you are wondering: It’s two eggs (mine over hard since I’m not supposed to have runny eggs), kale, garlic, cherry tomatoes, a little pesto and a sprinkle of bread crumbs and its mouth watering!
Even Peeps was in heaven.
Later, we laid out in the grass just to get as much of that great sunshine as possible where I started on crafting a new pair of baby booties for the little one. We managed to get some practical things done as well like laundry and dishes. And I even did a little work in the babies room.
I never felt like I was pushing myself too hard, but early that evening, after a yummy BBQ veggie burger dinner and a netflix date I found myself ready for bed at about 8:30!! I guess this whole pregnancy thing is catching up to me in the third trimester!!
As I write this (early Sunday afternoon) I already feel like taking a nap! We have a What We Do Films client meeting later with an awesome new couple whos wedding we will be shooting in a couple of weeks, maybe an afternoon sugary treat at our meet up will give me that second wind I need. hehe.
Hope you are all having a relaxing and fun weekend as well!!!
