I was in a hurry this morning - we had a perinatal appointment this morning and the big surprise of a day was the 3D Ultrasound. The purpose of this appointment was to find out how everything is going - Mili-Mali's size, length, development, etc and once we found out that all is on target (she weighs 6.5lbs) the ultrasound specialist showed us Mili-Mali in 3D. I could not believe what I was seeing - we saw her face so clearly - every single line, her lips, her nose, her eyes, 5 fingers even toes!!! It was the best experience yet. Now every time I think about her, I see this little face - isn't she just the cutest!!! Only a few more weeks, I can't wait to meet her in person - I am ready!!!!
Before the incredible appointment, I had a quick breakfast. These days it's my go-to breakfast when in hurry.
I am loving the South American Crofter's jelly - it's my favorite of all the flavors and one that I keep going back for at the Fresh Market. I see a trip in my future as a jar is almost empty. The thing is the jar is so small so I don't feel as guilty for eating it so quickly, as in a week ;)
- Toasted wheat Arnold bread
- Smucker's Honey peanut butter
- Flax Seeds
- Crofter's South American Jelly
- 1/2 Bananas
The sous-chef shared some banana slices with me...as usual. This was a very filling breakfast - I actually didn't eat lunch till very late (2pm) and it was my another in a hurry lunch on a go - Panera Bread.... Unfortunately no photo - I felt really odd taking a photo of my lunch in front of my boss - he still doesn't know about my little blog, so we shall keep it this way for a little longer.
Dinner - well, from all the excitement of today and some other minor set-backs, the chef didn't get around of making dinner till 8:30pm and once he saw that the original dinner plan - tilapia with mango sauce and rice takes 1 hour and 5 minutes to prepare, he changed the plans really quickly and we ate before 9pm.
I got to give him credit - dinner was still delicious - panko breaded tilapia and jasmine rice with green peas. At first I thought this would be a dry meal and would need some type of sauce/cream, but the rice was really moist. The only thing I wished for was some tartar sauce - it would have been perfect for the breaded tilapia, next time though.
We watched the "Fighter" tonight - it was really a slow movie, but Christian Bale most definitely deserved an Oscar for his role - he was fantastic!!! Even though I didn't like his character, he has done an extraordinary job!!! I also watched Rosie Pope's "Pregnant in Heels" - love, love, love the absurdity of her clients - it seems as though with each episode the clients get crazier. I already can't wait for next week's episode!!
