Max found a recipe for #instantpot #butterchicken on @thenewyorkermagazine. We whipped it up tonight and holy crap… it might be in the top 5 dishes we have ever made. Ridiculously flavorful, tender chicken… and it only had to cook for 10 minutes in the instant pot. I think between that and the #sousvide, 2018 is going to be full of some seriously delicious eats

I hadn't really noticed until yesterday how much bigger I had gotten. Definitely entering the puffy stage. Hands and feet are getting swollen and I'm starting to see it in my face also. Back is killing me. Low level grouchiness pretty much all the time. Sleeping fine, thankfully. #35weekspregnant day after tomorrow (#34weeks4days in the photo).

Extremely happy to report that our #ultrasound went great and the niƱo had a growth spurt! He went from the 8th percentile up to the 16th!! We review everything with our doctor on Thursday so hoping that means we get to drop the #IUGR diagnosis 🏻🏻 Also: please please let me keep my #pregnancyskin after I deliver 🏻 It's never been so clear and glowy in my life!!

Replaced the #antique dresser we had been using as a credenza in the dining room. Found this fun vintage piece to use in its place. Chair is also a #midecentury score from @callitnewcallitantique… so is the clock. Just realized how much of my furniture has come from that place over the years The French crystal colored wine glasses were a gift from my grandmother- she saved her money for them as a young woman and hand carried them with her when she moved from Germany to the US #chihuahuaphotobomb #midcenturymodern #midcenturyfurniture #vintagefurniture #homedecor #nesting #thirdtrimesterproblems

What an awesome day!! Thank you so so so much to @kristikupcakes and @mylissa_x3 for my beautiful shower. It filled me with so much joy to be surrounded by people expressing so much love and generosity and excitement for this new chapter in my life. I'm full to the brim with gratitude! And to have had @heykeesha fly all the way from Texas to share in this with me was such a great surprise Thank you to everyone who came, and to all that were there in spirit and who have been so sweet to send thoughtful gifts and cards and well wishes. I'm truly humbled, and can't wait to bring this little guy into this loving tribe!
