Five on Friday: Could Spring be Here?!

The way the sun has been shining, it's hard to believe a mere week ago we were in the midst of a real winter storm.  Then again, that's Maryland for you.  If you don't like the weather today, wait til tomorrow.  As I pray that the spring-like weather continues in that direction, here are 5 things that have made my week.

ONE.  Childcare, check! I am so relieved to say that I signed a contract for in home day care not far away from our house and feel really good about my choice.  I feel like we got a good deal monetarily and that the babies will be in a really good atmosphere to grow and socialize with other kids.  More than anything, I'm glad I don't have to think about it anymore because honestly that part of preparing for baby is NOT fun!  

TWO.  I went to the gym 4 of the past 5 days.  Holy smokes.  For the past few months, I've barely made it out of bed let alone to a workout facility, and suddenly I have the itch to exercise.  I'm definitely taking it easy and lifting light weights, but just being active for a period of time makes me feel like I'm doing something good for the babies, and I like to think they're having a good time in there too.
Old quote, new meaning.  Hopefully I'll be glad I got these workouts in 3 months from now when I'm potentially bed ridden!

THREE.  The Shamrock Shake.  One of about 8,000 junk food items I consumed this week.  Contradictory after my #2, I know, but I feel like I just can't stop. I swore for years that I would eat super healthy throughout my pregnancy for the sake of the babies.  I thought that pregnant women who binged on junk food were simply lazy or using their pregnancy as an excuse.  Little did I know that the mere smell of chicken and broccoli would elicit vomit-like reactions.  Now I get it.  

FOUR.  Easter is coming and I'm already giddy with anticipation.  I'm still unsure exactly what is going in my husband's basket this year, but I'll be sure to fill you in after the bunny arrives ;)  Do you make a basket for your man?  Check out last year's "man basket", one of my favorites to date, to get ideas for your own!

FIVE.  I didn't forget about St. Patrick's Day weekend.  In fact, I'm hoping to get out in celebrate somehow even though we have no plans to at the moment.  Ya know, wear a little green and drink a little extra ginger ale ;)  Have a lucky weekend leprechauns!
