First off, I am currently enjoying the best smoothie I have ever made. The difference, I added banana. I usually do not like this fruit in my smoothies as I find they over power and strong arm every other flavour in the drink, well I was wrong.
Half a banana
Half a handful of frozen berries
1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup of milk
2-3 ice cubes
Magic Bullet that sucker for 1-2 minutes and enjoy! So yummy!
Ok, on to last night. Ben and I had our second ultrasound (approx 19 weeks) and we were once again amazed. Even though it was slightly more uncomfortable as the tech had to take what felt like a zillion picture while stabbing into my over loaded bladder (which she apologized for), I just kept my eyes on the screen and was in awe of what I saw. Tiny hands cradling it’s own head, feet kicking into me which I can periodicallly feel, a strong heart beat pumping blood around that little body and other incredible details like the stomach, kidneys, spine, bones of various kinds, but no nether-regions. We are keeping that a complete secret for the birthday 🙂
Last night was not only a date with baby Clark but also a date with my husband, my best friend, Ben. For Christmas he bought me tickets to Broadway in Detroit, “The Million Dollar Quartet”. All I can say is it was a toe-tapping, sing-a-long, laugh out loud night that felt more like a concert then a play. The script was great and held awesome information about the four men, Elvis Presley, Jonny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, as well as the owner of Sun Records, Sam Philips. It was based on an actual event when the four of them met together at Sun Records and turned out a ‘glorified jam session’. The talent of the actors was amazing as they all had to sing and play their instruments as would the original men. If you love music, the 50’s and any of those artists get your butts to the theatre when it is in town.
The best part about the night was spending time with my Ben. I always cherish the time we have together but with the bump in my belly growing by the day I am learning to treasure our time alone even more. Getting dressed up and taken on an exciting, romantic date made a fabulous evening and I know they may be fewer and further between once the baby comes but I know it will only make me appreciate them more 🙂
