We're a little less than six weeks out! We can not wait to meet this little summer girl! Since I read in my email updates yesterday that babies born as early as 34 weeks can definitely make it and can do pretty well, I keep having fantasies that she'll come early (maybe not this early, but in a few weeks). Just humor me, everyone!
Here is what we have been up to lately:
This is strawberry-hibiscus tea-lemonade. It sounds better than it turned out.
I have been dreaming about making homemade lemonade once it got summery enough and since it has been so summery the past few days (I'll get to that in a minute), I tried out a Martha Stewart recipe. I added less than half of the sugar that the recipe called for and tasted it and it was soooooo sugary that it was burning my throat. Not good. So, I decided to turn it into strawberry lemonade popsicles instead. Much better.
We've celebrated the warm weather by moving our armchairs on the front porch (and by we, I mean Kyle) and eating lunch out there in the afternoon. We also play Set and Boggle out there at night, until it gets too dark to see.
It's officially summer. Kyle brought out the paper lanterns. One of my many fabulous birthday presents from him last year.
The fresh summery food, of which I spoke earlier. On the left, we have lowfat chicken salad on a bed of fresh spinach and on the right we have whole-wheat macaroni salad, made with olive oil mayo, tuna, and fresh veggies (including chives from our garden! [yes, it is the only thing growing in there right now, but we're working on that...])
I love my life right now. And I love summer. It might be my new favorite season.
