BLOGMAS (Dec. 17 & 18) | Pie Social & Resting

This weekend was split evenly between doing a million things and doing nothing. See below.

Saturday, December 17
Saturday was filled with lots of baking. I think once the holidays pass, I’m going to take a sabbatical on baking. I’m all baked out.

If you’ve been keeping up on my blogmas posts, on Thursday I spent all day cooking/baking. I was able to rest on Friday but I was back at it on Saturday. It’s been getting colder where we live which means I want to bake more just so our gas oven will heat up our condo. So Saturday morning, for the first time ever I made homemade cinnamon rolls.

You should have seen the look on Russell’s face. He’s an easy man to please 😉

Later that day, we attended a pie social with some friends, which meant I spent the afternoon making this:

Banana Cream Pie!

I ended up having enough pie filling for two pies so I took one to my parents’ house so they can have one (and so I can eat/taste my own pie afterwards). The pie ended up getting watery on the car ride over so the cream wasn’t as pretty when we got there. Whomp whomp. But luckily it still got eaten.

Back to my parents’ house, guess who was there?

Kenzo and Angela were going to take him to see Santa but sadly, there was a long wait so we staged our own photo-op. So cute.

Sunday, December 18
This day was spent in nothingness. I woke up not feeling so good and my belly ached. My OB doctor has warned me that when I try to do too much, this might happen. So I decided to stay in bed all day while the hubby brought me breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

One thing I learned about pregnancy is that rest days are just as important as exercising. I’ve learned not to feel guilty about putting my feet up and sitting back some days instead of going on my one hour walk. Turns out the baby needs some rest too.

It was a whirlwind weekend. I’m hoping to find some balance in my days as soon as Christmas passes. Till next time!
