2. New Sneakers & Other Workout Gear
3. My clients & readers

4. Endurance for Giving Birth & Bouncing Back Post-Baby
5. Always remembering how it makes me feel mentally and physically
Be on the lookout for more yummy mango recipes next week 😀

courtesy of “watch me grow” 😉
1. Pelvic Pain
2. Swollen Ankles
3. Charlie Horse in the Middle of the Night….Michael thought I was waking up in labor I was screaming so loud

It could be worse though!!!!!!! I still feel extremely lucky to have had a wonderful pregnancy overall!
Cute-ism of the Week:
He’s STILL obsessed with my new glider. Plus–he’s been staying OUT of the crib. I can share my chair with him, I don’t mind 😉
Currently In Search of…
It’s Michael birthday on Sunday and his request was “vanilla cupcakes with no weird stuff in them, like beets.” “I want some cupcake wars ish.” Hahaha. No, Michael. I only put beets in my Red Velvet Cupcakes, silly boy. And you KNOW they were delicious when you ate them! In Michael code that means no vegan stuff. What he won’t know won’t hurt him as long as they are killer tasty. Baking is my specialty, but I don’t think I have any really fantastic, blow your mind vanilla cupcake recipes. I think plain vanilla can be so boring, but that’s what he wants. With butter cream icing. Nothing too horrific as far as sugar goes, I am banned from using stevia blends too. If anyone has any ideas let me know! Nothing where I have to buy all kinds of expensive ingredients either. Babycakes has a recipe but I think they will cost me like $50.00+ to make. I will be searching I heart cuppycakes and the reviews at All Recipes & Food Network until then and keep you posted 😉
Let me know if you have any site or recipe suggestions!
He doesn’t want me to buy anything for him this year. He wants me to use every penny I am making towards bills and Ella since, things we need. I will be out of work for a few months. I can’t stand that, but since he is IMPOSSIBLE to buy gifts for anyway. His family and I are taking him out to dinner tonight and I’m making him his dinner and dessert of choice on Sunday. No matter what it is, I can’t debate it. He only gets a birthday once a year and he deserves to get what he wants!!!
Enjoy your weekend!!!
