Shake your chips

Hi friends! How was your day? Hope it was fabulous <3

We had a relaxing, but productive day together.

This morning, we got some stuff put together in the nursery:

The Pilot finished assembling the crib


we finished a little art project

baby (2)

[a snippet of the name we’ve chosen]

and then we hit up the Columbus Day Sales.

I picked up a few things –stuff for the house from World Market and a few things that are on the Fashion page– and the Pilot got a couple pairs of jeans that look verrrrry nice on him.


Lunch was Chipoddle:


Part of me wishes I never would have tried their chips because now, every time I go, I have to have some. The other part of me is very, very glad I’ve been introduced to the chip glory of Chipotle, because they are the perfect chip. So salty and citrusy. [I got the title for this post from one of my friends. When he teaches Zumba, he tells us to shake our “chips” because chips is Spanish for hips]

We’re back at the house now, and the Pilot is grilling up some dinner 🙂


New salad beast comin’ atcha in the am.


Have a great night and I’ll see ya in the morning!



Something to talk about: Do you dress up for Halloween? What are you doing for Halloween this year? Any ideas for hilarious/awesome costumes I could rock with a giant belly?

    A few years back I had a pregnant friend that dressed up as a trucker. She wore jeans and a sloppy tshirt and a trucker hat and made it look like she had facial hair by rubbing coffee grounds on her face. The hilarious part was her belly because it looked like a beer belly! I think she might have been carrying around a beer can…

    You are just THE most adorable pregnant woman.

    That is all. 🙂

    I love the name Olivia, it’s our first choice for a girl name! 🙂 I’m guessing the LIA are for either Olivia or Natalia. 🙂 love them both!

      I love Olivia, too! I hadn’t thought of that one. I was thinking maybe Alicia, which I think is very pretty, too.

    What do you mean you’re having trouble dressing your belly? You look fabulous here!

      aww thank you! lulu tank and sweatpants, haha

    My guess for the baby’s name is Aurelia. As for Halloween costumes, when my Sis-in-law was preggers she went as an oven and her belly was the “bun” popping out of the oven they fashioned out of a cardboard box….her husband went as the baker!

      Hahahahaha! I love that costume idea–hilarious, thanks for sharing. I also love Olivia, Aurelia and Amelia…but “LIA” can be a million different names! You can’t go wrong thought, no matter what you chose, Gina. It’ll still be an adorable little girl 🙂

    You are so cute cookin with your belly!! Chipolte chips are so ADDICTIVE but I love em’ too! 🙂

  7. Alicia on October 11, 2011 at 11:32 am

    I love that crib! The beautiful dark wood looks amazing!

    My guess for the name is Liliana… My friend named her daughter that and I loved it once I heard it..

  8. Katherine on October 11, 2011 at 11:33 am

    I guess Amelia….it was one of the names we chose for my now 3 month old, but when we met her she ended up being a Margot instead!

    • Fitnessista on October 11, 2011 at 11:39 am

      i love both of those names! margot is so classy 🙂

  9. Chelsea Anthony on October 11, 2011 at 11:58 am

    You should be a pregnant nun for Halloween 🙂

    I went to a Chipotle in Chicago over the weekend and was very excited because they had brown rice! Hope this is a new thing that will spread to Indiana where I live.

    • Katie @ Peace Love and Oats on October 11, 2011 at 3:30 pm

      Which Chipotle!?!!? I live in Lincoln Park and I’ve been DYING for them to add brown rice, but haven’t been in a while!

  11. Erika on October 11, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    OH! I am going to guess Amelia 🙂

    You ARE the cutest pregnant lady ever! And that crib/changing table combo is adorable! Such a great idea.

  12. Nada (One Arab Vegan) on October 11, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Gina – all your family posts make me crave domesticity (and I’m not even 21 yet)! You also have that wonderful pregnancy glow 🙂

    Halloween constume – how bout going as a “bun in the oven” with an actual cardboard oven around your belly?

  13. River on October 11, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Those letters are so pretty! The crib is awesome too.

  14. cindylu on October 11, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    I guess “shake your hips” probably sounds better than “shake your cadera.

  15. Sharon on October 11, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    My mom got her website up. Hope you like it. Let me know if you have any other questions.
