Last Day

in All Posts

Catching up on blogs on this lovely Sunday (that’s what I like to do on Sunday mornings!)?  Here’s a summary of some of my favorite HTP posts from this week, in case you missed ‘em:


The Diaper Debate: What Will Work For Us (You May Surprised)



Speaking of poop… How to Make Yourself “Go”

Obstacles Course Races: Cool, But Are They Safe?


Will Run for Mustaches


Do Overs


The 5K Everyone Should Do

Sunday seem to be especially poignant for me these days.  I used to dread Sundays… after all, next up is Moanday.  But now Sundays are an odd mixture of joy and nerves.  One more week closer to meeting BabyHTP, after all.  Both the Husband and I are getting a little antsy.  We’re trying to enjoy this time alone, as a couple and as individuals, as much as possible… but on the other hand, I feel like a ticking time bomb is living in my stomach.  When will he (or she) come out?  I spend a lot of time trying to imagine whether it’s a boy or a girl and what they’ll look like.  Come out and play, already!  (Well, not at 32.5 weeks, please, but part of me would like to just press fast-forward to delivery.)


Until then… breakfast is served.


Let’s call this Thanksgiving no-bake granola.  Because that’s kind of what it was – very Thanksgiving-ish in flavor.  I promise that you can eat uncooked oatmeal if you mix it into yogurt; the yogurt softens it and makes it super chewy.


In the mix:


Uncooked oatmeal

Chopped roasted almonds



With pumpkin puree and Greek vanilla yogurt.  Very Thanksgiving, indeed.


I hope you have a beautiful Sunday, no matter what you’re doing with (or thinking about on!) the last day of the week.

    Hi Caitlin, glad you’re having a nice Sunday! Just wondering how your neighbor Tonya is doing? I was thinking about her the other day and realized there hadn’t been an update about her in awhile . . .I’m praying for her!

      I had wondered how she was doing too!

      • Caitlin April 22, 2012, 8:43 pm

        She is doing pretty good. She got off her medications that were causing her to experience a ton of side effects this summer and have since really “leveled out.” There is no treatment for her tumor, but as far as doctors can tell, it’s not growing/growing very slowly.

    Those GOTR shoelaces are so cute!

    I loved the post about “going” before a race! Haha good posts today! And I am definitely still eating canned pumpkin like it’s going out of style.

    Mmm… it’s dreary here and a Thanksgiving-ish breakfast sounds yummy! I remember feeling quite anxious in the last weeks of pregnancy too but looking back, my pregnancy went by so quick. Then again I feel the same way about labor… looking back it all happened so fast! Happy Earth Day! xx

    I love Sunday too, but I consider them the FIRST day of the week 🙂

    • Tracy April 22, 2012, 11:37 am

      I agree! Sunday is the first day of the week! I’m a Kindergarten teacher….I had to comment on this! 🙂

      • Caitlin April 22, 2012, 8:41 pm

        I asked the husband and he said the same thing – that it’s the first day of the week 🙂 But I still think Monday is!!!

  • Lizz @ Leading the Good Life April 22, 2012, 11:35 am

    Huh, I consider Sunday to be the first day of the week! It’s one of my favorite days…lingering breakfasts, good coffee, naps, and errands.

  • Laura @ She Eats Well April 22, 2012, 12:04 pm

    Love your oatmeal and yogurt…so pretty! Sunday is usually my day to get stuff done…errands, prep for the week. But it’s relaxing in its own way!

  • Catalina @ Cake with Love April 22, 2012, 12:11 pm

    I used to hate Sundays when I was in college because I had a lot of homework, now I love them and try to enjoy every minute 🙂

    Don’t rush it girl, I have an 11 week old and what people don’t tellyou is that what is getting ready to happen to your life is the hardest thing you will ever experience it. Your life is not yours anymore. It’s a beautiful thing but the world is different- and you will be confined for a while and that is very very hard 🙂

    I fondly remember waiting for the weeks to go by with both of my sons.

    What helped my husband and me was to get hooked on a weekly show that we both liked. In 2007, it was ‘LOST’. In 2009 with our 2nd boy, it was ‘Leverage’ and a weird miniseries called ‘Harpers Island.’

    Not only did it give me a non baby-related thing to look forward to every week, but it also became a mini ritual with us. No matter what, we met on the couch to snuggle and watch the show each week. It made the weeks go faster and the couple time was priceless.

    So I suggest a weekly ritual for you two, something you ONLY do once a week that you can both look forward to. Good luck!

      Aw what a fun idea. I love this. We need to do something similar!
