Dog in a Bra?

Where to start on the weekend happenings? I guess first I should say thanks--a lot!--for your well wishes on our baby news. I'm exactly three months pregnant tomorrow, and unfortunately I'm still feeling exhausted and nauseated. And I don't mean I feel sick every once and awhile either; I mean that I feel nauseated all day long, every single day. That, by far, has been the worst and most surprising aspect of being knocked up. Based on my extensive research (watching the movies Nine Months and Twins) I expected that I might throw up a few times a day--at any time of day--but I didn't know that a lot of women just feel nauseated all day. Sigh. But, what can I say--I did this to myself, um, well, sort of:-)

In any case, I also just want to say that I can't believe no one called me out on all the veggie sushi I've been eating!!! I mean, I literally ate it every single day for the last two weeks! Luckily for our budget that craving has passed, though I'm still having a hard time finding any food that sounds appealing. The funny thing is that despite feeling sick and having food sound disgusting, eating is the only thing that makes me feel better. I think it's funny and kind of ironic, actually, given my history of anorexia. Heh.

So, okay, on to weekend haps. The highlights definitely include spending time with my nieces.

We watched Aladdin, which totally brought back memories for me. I used to know all the song lyrics to that entire movie. My friends and I would watch it after school while drinking coffee that we'd doctored with approximately 90% milk and a shit-ton of sugar. (We did this at my friend Lauren's house, and now that I think about it, maybe I'd be 5'8 instead of 5'6.5 if I hadn't gotten so jacked up on coffee in middle school.)

I also really enjoyed eating this croissant:

And dressing up Haruki:

In David's bra, of course. FYI: 1) my boobs aren't really as big as that bra looks, and 2) if there's anyone reading from Animal Welfare Services, please don't take my Ruki!!!

Today it was back to work, however, since I have to print and turn in my dissertation by Thursday. Today I spent at a coffee shop, working on last minute edits and also working on some peppermint tea and gluten free zucchini chocolate bread.


*What was the best thing that you ate this weekend?


  1. I'm currently in a state of pre-dinner hunger and that chocolate zucchini bread is just staring me in the face. Torturous! The best thing I ate this weekend was...cabbage? Okay, it was probably a marbled cheesecake brownie but cabbage cooked with corned beef and Guinness is SO DARN GOOD.

    1. I get it--cabbage can be very good!!! Since I haven't had a drink since New Year's Eve, however, I'd say the Guinness sounds the best:-) Actually, I bet Guinness would be a nice pairing to that chocolate zucchini bread...
