When we found out we were pregnant, we went out for a nice lunch to celebrate, so we’ve decided to mark each trimester with a meal out. Last night, we went out to mark the beginning of the second trimester.
I was jonesin’ sushi.
Sushi is on the list of ‘foods to avoid’ while preggers, but vegetarian sushi is fine. Actually, a lot of the foods you are told to avoid, you don’t even need to think about if you’re already veg, which is nice. So we headed to Cowfish, which makes the best vegetarian sushi around.
His and hers, on a wild night out:
I started off with miso soup, which prompted lots of corny “miso hungry” jokes.
And the Husband ordered the tofu lettuce wraps. The lettuce was so crunchy.

Today, I am running a 5K race – but not until 3 PM! It’s kind of strange for a race to start so late, but I’m thankful because I’m not much of a morning person these days. If the race was longer, I’d be really stressed about what to get for breakfast and lunch so I don’t give myself a stomachache, but I think it will be fine if I just eat normally.
