The Husband has severe smiling-for-the-camera troubles. Heâ€™s one of those naturally happy-go-lucky people who freeze up the moment a camera turns on him. Kristienâ€™s smile morphs into super fake, extra-wide mode, and he panics the moment the shutter goes click. So, obviously, todayâ€™s maternity photo shoot was a challenge. Smile massages were required after an hour or so.
Smile massages are the best.
We also went on a long walk. Eight months into pregnancy, and 3.0 miles in the sun is exhausting (how do some women run up to delivery, seriously?! Tell me your energy secretsâ€¦). Even poor James looked back at me as if to say, â€œSpeed up, you slow poke.â€ I think I need to get back into water-based exercises â€“ swimming, here I come! Floating sounds quite nice.
Todayâ€™s eats, in Instagram photosâ€¦
Post-walk smoothie (coconut milk, orange juice, frozen pineapple, raspberries):
An entire box of Annieâ€™s macaroni and cheese. It was freaking amazing.
Our photographer brought us cookies â€“ and the dogs got little bones. Smart photographer! The dogs were very cooperative for all the family pictures.
And we had a date night at a local sushi bar. Salty edamame to start off with:
And five different types of veggie rolls, which we shared. One of was a spinach roll â€“ never had it before, but it was good! Just steamed spinach wrapped in nori.
Any other camera-shy folk out there? The Husband is pretty bashful (thatâ€™s why you rarely see him on the blog). I think itâ€™s so strange that heâ€™s shy now because his mother says he was a total ham as a kid â€“ always putting on song and dance shows for strangers at the grocery store and whatnot! Hah.
