scenes from the week Bean Bytes 99

I got a fun delivery from my friend Nicole last week.  We connected through blogging and she has her own business called Blissful Eats. She sells granola and bars and she sent me some to sample. They’re delicious. The granola comes in 3 flavors: Maple Nut Crunch, Blueberry Honey and No Nut Chocolate Chip. So far I’ve tried the chocolate chip and the blueberry- both amazing. The bars are chocolate and cookie dough flavored and I can’t wait to try them.

If you’re looking for a new granola to try, check out her products. You can buy them on Amazon! Added bonus: They’re non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher, soy-free and dairy-free!

Baby things:
- Our family friends gave us this bike trailer! Can’t wait to take baby for rides when he’s big enough.
- Our crib came!
- Couldn’t resist this outfit when we were at Costco.
- There’s nothing better than seeing the excitement on hubby’s face when he feels the baby move. He gets SO excited every single time. It never gets old.

27 week bump pic and breakfast with hubby.

One more week until I have my 28 week appointment. We’ll get to take a peek at baby again and I also have to do my glucose test! Overall I’m feeling ok. I have a few good days, a few really bad days, and most days I just feel average. I’m still working out 3-4 days a week, walking the dogs daily, etc.
