Tuesday we bundled up and rode bikes into “the city” to pick up carry-out sushi. The route is a sweet one. We start out on the sidewalks of our neighborhood, and go onward to the trail, riding above and beside the river. Next, we cross over two bridges, take a few blocks and turns, and we’re there!
All the other days this week I tried out new recipes for dinner. Brad has actually started getting home at a reasonable hour (I’m so grateful!), so I’ve actually cooked. I’d reccomend these two: shrimp fajitas (super easy! no mess! mmm, so good.) + slow cooker Mexican quinoa (ditto!).
Here are some quick takes + funny photos from recent South Bend days…
The theme of this collage is probably “pregnancy!” (Are collages totally 2013. IDC..)
- Top Right: I have thing for pie.
- Top Left: I already have a little pudge. (Round that back to pie.)
- Bottom Right: A classy alternative pregnancy announcement. ;)
- Bottom Left: We love the library, and make a trip 1x week! We go overboard and bring back a couple dozen books. I’m already digging into my pregnancy ones. So much good info! Eve is digging her pop-up picture books.
We hang out with our besties almost everyday. When we don’t, we miss them! This week we made s’mores one night and caramel apples another. We also had a big queso + quesadilla party last night over Thursday Night Football.
How did we ever survive without family nearby?
This week we took the kids to the zoo. And we make it on campus a couples times a week for the playground + candy wall. Having ND in our backyard is like living on one huge, beautiful playground! …plus Jesus is your neighborhood friend.
Brad there, still really into (and really good at) grilling. We are loving having a backyard and grill as much as we can.
Geena here, still obsessed with thrifting, and this $8.00 vintage maxi. I call it the OG Sonnet James dress.
And- saving thee best for last- we have our FALL FASHION FEATURE.
Dressing Eve is a blast. The #1 concern is always comfort. And, despite all the pink above, people normally think she’s a boy! Like, anytime she’s not wearing a boy. Weirdos.
Soon to be pictured: we both got secondhand parkas with faux-fur hoods. (I’m so cheesy and love matching!) So, I’m pretty excited! Mine was $4.00 (ah!) from Salavation Army (I got him down from $12.00) and Eve’s was $25.00 (which is still so much) from the local children’s consignment, but it came with matching snow pants… so, semi-winning.
We already feel like it’s so cold over here. It’s going to be a looooong Winter.
Happy Weekend! I’m jumping up and down with excitement because we are going up to the middle-o-no-where Michigan for a lake cabin stay! Our friends were so generous in letting us stay there, and we can’t wait!!
I almost forgot this gem from last night..
