During the school year, our schedule is pretty consistent in regards to when my kids are with Jason and Natasha and when they’re with us but in the summer it’s a bit of a shuffle because of camps and vacations and such. Every other Monday night has been our date night during the year, and this week was the same so Andrew and Callum and I went to the Cactus Club for dinner. We sat outside on the patio which I loooove doing because the views are to die for and there’s a lot of space for Callum to be… well, to be a 3 year-old.
Next week we’re going to be without all of the big kids for an entire week because my kids are going with Jason’s family on their yearly trip to Oroville. The house is going to feel so empty, but next summer Callum will have a little brother to play with all week!
My dear friend Melody came back for the summer. She’s been teaching in Indonesia. Melody was Jake’s third grade teacher, nearly 10 years ago!
She even let Callum paint her toenails!
This is what I wrote about Mel on Instagram:
Okay, so anyway, we went to the mall and nosed around the shops for something to do. I found some post-partum gonch. What do you guys think? Sexy?
Katie mastered the fierce model look while trying on high heels!
I love how much Callum loves her. He actually cares more about Katie than about anyone else. She turns 12 on Wednesday! I’m super excited for her birthday festivities, but you’ll have to wait until next week for the lowdown.
So, on Friday night, my belly broke out into a rash. I googled it and I diagnosed myself with PUPPPS rash–some funky itchy AF rash that happens during pregnancy in the third trimester. In true Suzy-style, I freaked out, went to the store and bought every single topical cream I could get my mitts on and slathered it all over my belly. I also ordered some weird soap off Amazon that everyone said totally helped them with their own PUPPPS rash.
But when I woke up the next day, it was gone! THANK GOODNESS.
OH! And the very best part of the week last week? THE ULTRASOUND! The technician told us that her measurements estimated the baby to be 5lb which is a bit bigger than what’s typically normal for a baby at 33 weeks gestation. Woohoo! So, of course, I went for a run. Just 3 miles, but it felt great! So great that I ran 15 miles the next day. Ha!
Andrew took Callum down to Whidbey Island to visit his parents and I spent the day running those 15 miles, crossing items off my to-do list before the baby comes, and grocery shopping. Oh! And I had a bath. I haven’t had a bath in forever and it felt amaaazing.
Thanks to Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for hosting this week’s Week in Review!
Have you guys ever had a full body rash? What was it from? Allergies? Virus? Rashes freak me out!
Have you ever owned a really large pair of underwear? Why? To keep things smooth? Do they work?
