holy moly, today is my last friday at work!
i have two days next week and then i go on maternity leave.  i feel like time crept by for the first part of the pregnancy and all of a sudden it's flying.  and i'm still not processing that it doesn't just mean an extended vacation, but that the movement in my belly is going to translate into a sweet little baby in a few weeks.  weeks!  how did that happen???

anyway, let's talk about instagram {find me at rachelh0123} and all of the random nonsense from this week.

this lady.  where do i start.  i would not be the person that i am today without my amazing mama.  i am so blessed to have her as my mother and my friend, and baby girl is going to be so lucky to have her as a grandma.  i know that everything i am as a mother will come from what i've learned from her and i hope to be half the mama that she's been to me.  love you mama.
we spent mother's day grilling and hanging out in the back yard.  it was a perfect, wonderful, relaxing day with family and i couldn't ask for anything more.

it's been gorgeous and a half here in so cal.  and all of the plants that i thought were just ugly shrubs are now blooming.  like this one that i almost pulled out of the ground a month ago.  thank goodness for pregnancy laziness...

hubby said that he was going to take me on a date night to olive garden.  and honestly, that was all i needed in the world.  there's nothing like their soup, salad and bread sticks. 
but then he surprised me and said that we were going to cafe firenze instead.  as in fabio's restaurant.  from top chef.  as in one of my favorite top chefs ever in the history of my complete and total obsession with the show.  and it was  we split a flatbread and lobster bisque and then i pigged out on short ribs with polenta.  food is my happiness.  and i only have a few more weeks of blaming it in the baby, so i might as well take advantage while i can. 

hmm, another food related picture.  i'm sensing a theme.  but i went to sprouts for the first time and wow, guys.
this place is so cool.
at some point i'm going to wander the aisles and take some of every single bit of rice, grains and legumes and cook them all.
and the chocolate covered fill-in-the-blank aisle?  it's pregnancy paradise.

happy friday! Pin It
