Shout out to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for this weeks What I Ate Wednesday
One thing preggers ladies desperately need is camaraderie. We are going through crazy changes and, frankly, our hubbies just don’t get it. They may try, but it’s futile. Until their uterus ligaments start stretching and causing pain, they just won’t know.
That’s where other pregger mamas come into play!
I know about 7 people that are pregnant, and 3 of them live right in the area! WIN! And in turn they know people too, so I’m hoping to get regular moms-to-be meet-ups happening.
This Saturday I hosted for 3 lovely ladies and decided to do a brunch…
Outfit du jour: black capri leggins from Forever 21, dress from Alloy (I think?), large oversized black belt (very old), tippy toes (mine…I don’t know how to be flat-footed!)
Included in the goodies were:
- Orange Strawberry Banana juice or Pellegrino (or if you’re me, mix the two!)
- Chocolate Raspberry Coffee – decaf of course! Served with either vanilla creamer or milk and sugar
- Chobani Lemon Cranberry scones (you see see the recipe (variation) on Chobani’s website)
- Mixed berries – strawberries and blackberries –> fyi, Target often sells berries for much cheaper than the grocery store. The berries were served with fat-free vanilla yogurt
We also looked at a few of my books (and got freaked out by some graphic photos about childbirth )
I was hoping we’d have some good convo for about an hour, 2 max, but we kept chatting for nearly 3 hours! I loved it! Preggers women have oh so much to say and share. And all privacy goes out the window.
Here’s a shot of the ladies:
Left to Right: Jeannie (due Jan 3); Jennifer (due Dec 15); Alice (due Nov 16); Me (due Dec 26)
We’ve already mentioned future meet ups that will also revolve around food – I’m thinking pizzas and ice-cream. NOM! Or perhaps we’ll eat AND we’ll treat ourselves to prenatal massages and/or pedis!
When you have get togethers, do you build it around food?
Favorite brunch dish? Brunch to me still means indulging in 99% breakfast foods…and if I wasn’t preggers, a few Mimosas or Bloody Mary’s
