what I’m into right now – 4.10.17

this weekend….

Friday, I didn’t get back to NJ after my trip to the Facebook HQ until about 6pm and I came home to Lu sick with flu-like symptoms. I was absolutely exhausted, so aside from unpacking, I watched a movie, made my two-ingredient pancakes for dinner, and passed out.

Saturday, we woke up at 5:15am, got ready, and drove up to the Boston area (Dedham, to be exact) for 2 two-hour spiralizing cooking class sessions at Whole Foods. it was a blast, but I felt bad that Lu was so sick, but he insisted on driving me (he’s been extra protective of me since the pregnancy began!). it was great to meet so many of my Inspiralized followers and make some delicious meals. afterwards, we drove all the way back to NJ (I know, we’re crazy) and literally collapsed. we ordered dinner in and went to bed early.

Sunday, I felt like a new woman! finally, NO MORE TRAVELING. I’m home for the next month with no traveling! it feels amazing! it was a very productive day, starting with SIGNING A LEASE ON A NEW APARTMENT! we had been searching for a 2BR for the past 90 days and finally found the perfect place. we wanted to stay in our building and we were getting nervous that nothing would open up, but it finally did and we officially signed the lease, starting may 1. so, let the packing begin! after that, we went for brunch to celebrate and to get Lu out of the house. after that, we walked around a bit to continue the fresh air and then Lu spent the rest of the day on the couch while I was super productive! cleaned, did laundry, worked out, did work, did some general spring cleaning. then I grocery shopped and made dinner! relaxed, watched GIRLS, and went to bed.

what I’m into RN…

I have to hold back from buying maternity clothes! I don’t really need it yet, I can still get by with my regular clothes, but everything’s so cute, like this eyelit off-the-shoulder dress.

BUT, I did buy these maternity workout bottoms and they’re so comfortable, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to regular workout spandex!

backcountry on netflix – the bear scene. OMG. I can’t stop thinking about it. have you seen this movie? I will NEVER go camping. ever.

our new apartment has an adorable breakfast nook off the kitchen, so I need to find a round dining table. I’ve been eyeing this one, but it’s way out of our budget. HALP! any lookalikes?

I discovered these while traveling in San Francisco and I just bought a 3-pack – they’re such a healthy, tasty snack – and can even double as breakfast on the go!

see you next week!

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
