updates and shakes.

for all you pregnant/non pregnant people out there, this is a really good shake that i have made myself multiple times throughout this pregnancy. it is seriously delicious, and i really do feel good after i drink it. not to mention it's filling. when everything else sounds NOT GOOD (which is the stage i'm in currently), this still does. anyway, thought i'd share the wealth. i eat it with a piece of dry whole grain toast.
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (i use whey)
1 cup of nonfat milk (i always end up using just a TAD bit more. a tad people.)
1 cup fresh or frozen fruit (i like frozen because it makes it really cold. i also used a mixed berry mix from costco that i love)
half a banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 cup uncooked oats
add ice if you like, however the frozen berries can replace that. mix it up, drink it up, fill 'er up,
be happy.
current favorite song: eet by regina spektor.
current estimated baby weight (by doctor on monday): 7.5 pounds
current dialation: 1.5 cm. shoot me.
current effacement: 60-70%
current mood: tired. no sleep for this one. ever. but happy.
current favorite person: jake. hands down.
current favorite food: shake recipe from above.
current due date: who bloody knows. definitely not this week. possibly next. always changing.
good day.

That shake sounds really good. Also, I love the song "eet", but I feel kind of silly as I sing the chorus when the song isn't playing.

Good luck with the baby! I am sure she will be darling, just like her mama!

eet is my fave too. your little gal will be here before you know it! and then before you know it she will be 2.5 and refusing to potty train! (or is that just my life?)

I have to say that was by far the best shake I have ever had, love the hint of peanut butter. Thanks Jenna girl! I love you blog too.
