15 Weeks + visit from Mom

Well, I've made it into the second trimester! Supposedly when all your energy comes back... however this is my busiest season for Sara's Sweets so I don't think I would notice any extra energy even if I had it! Ha.

The past couple weeks have been pretty uneventful - just working a lot and living life. Poppyseed is now the size of an apple, which is crazy to me! I still can't really understand where he/she is taking up all that space. 

Baby bump? Or did I just eat one too many cupcakes?

I am still fitting into one pair of jeans from before I was pregnant. And I'm deathly afraid to wash them, because I know they won' t fit once they shrink up in the dryer! (You know it... freshly washed jeans are the worst! Even not pregnant!) Luckily it's turned into summer in these parts and I can wear a couple pairs of shorts. Plus all my running shorts. Ahhhh, the joy of working from home most days.

I'm still running along, although I've slowed down a bit. However, I think my days of taking just one rest day a week are over. My legs have been fatigued a lot more easily and sore in the strangest places (inner thighs??! That never happens unless you do that weird leg machine at the gym.) I did complete my longest run of this pregnancy on Sunday - 11.3 miles. It felt good to get that runner's high again.

Memorial Day Weekend was awesome, because my momma came out! And she even brought Maggie.

We pretty much spent the weekend relaxing... that is after whipping up 75+ dozen cupcakes on Friday for the various Saturday orders and for the cupcake counter.

On Saturday, while my mom & Ben worked in the yard for quite a bit, I whipped up a yummy pizza for dinner. This might be my favorite pizza for the summer - Fancy Margherita Pizza. (Click over to see the recipe at Annie's Eats.) We even toasted with a little bubbly, aka sparkling cherry juice. It was quite refreshing.

Sunday was a full day of eating and napping, lol. After church, we went for a late lunch to the Mustard Seed Cafe up in Bluffton. It was so good! We followed it up with ice cream for dinner at Pete's. (Definitely a nutritious day of eats.)
Outside the restaurant... it used to be an old train depot!
Had a salad for lunch, definitely a healthy choice! (Especially when topped with bacon, cheese, eggs, and fried chicken tenders. And topped with a never-ending supply of house made ranch dressing.
I could have drunk that stuff.)

You betcha I ate that whole cone - Caramel Cheesecake Cookie Monster and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup. And I even managed to sleep that night.
Monday we worked around the house and had a few people over for a cook-out. All in all, such a great weekend! Now it's back to the cupcake grind... but this week will definitely include some POOL TIME! Lovin' the summer!

It is fun to watch you progress in your pregnancy.

I only guessed 75 dozen cupcakes--just a few shy of your grand total.

Your cupcakes are the best. I make sure I tell everyone.
