Stayin’ alive

Many bloggers will go outside and take lovely pictures of foliage or flowers for their posts.

Everything is pretty much dead over here, except for the grass

and this cilantro:


which I haven’t watered in at least 4 months. It’s a survivor, for sure.

Also, the perfect complement to the baby meal my friend Liz brought over last night:



I can’t believe I forgot to snap a pic of everything (oh yeah, because I was chowing down as fast as possible), but it was amazing.

This morning’s breakfast for two:


Waffles and eggs for the Pilot

eggs, turkey, goat cheese, brown rice tortilla and tangerine juice for me:


We ended up staying home yesterday since I’ve been on bed rest for most of the week. Yesterday was the first day I’ve felt a lot better, but we decided to lay low for one more day. I thought I just wasn’t supposed to be super active or work out, but apparently I can’t do dishes or laundry either… yikes. Have you ever been on bed rest before, or out for the count due to an injury? What helped you keep your sanity?

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far, and I’ll see ya later tonight with a Family post <3

    Haha, when I was on bed rest the only time I was allowed out of bed was to go to the washroom!! And even then they told me to inform someone of my whereabouts in case I hit the floor or something. I was feeling fine too, they wanted me in bed because I had blood clots. It’s ridiculously boring, and I learned that your body can get sore from even lying in bed. Hope it’s at least starting to get better for you by now!

    I was on bedrest twice during my pregnancy. Journal journal journal and tried to “work ahead”. Take care of youself and body, I know you will. Such a wonderful support group you have

    I haven’t been put on bedrest, but I did injure my knee about a year ago and was on crutches for a few weeks. That was pretty rough, but I made the best of it. I probably wouldn’t have survived if I hadn’t had my husband there to fetch things for me.
