Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

This pregnancy’s coming to an end but so is June…

Sharing is caring!

It’s the last day of June and I think it’s safe to say baby #2 will have a July birthday! I can’t believe she still isn’t here, she’s just stubborn and too comfy in there!

I’m ready for her to make her appearance but I’m trying to be patient. My midwives assumed she’d be late because Mason was a week late. I’m ready for my body to not hurt and have more energy(as much as I can with a newborn) for summer activities. I’m ready to cuddle her. I’m ready for daily sunset family walks, we have a beautiful trail along the water less than 5 minutes away- Chambers Bay. And be able to eat everything I wasn’t supposed to while pregnant, I had to eliminate onions and garlic because of platelet drop.

 

We’ve had a pretty great June, despite being limited in what I can do.

+ Baby continued to grow, my platelet count continued to drop and just started to rise. We are all excited for her arrival – Mason keeps telling us he can’t wait to meet his baby sister! He also very seriously will tell us his body hurts or he can’t do something because he’s pregnant (blackmail later :)

+ Mason finished 3rd grade and moved onto being a 4th grader – how did that happen so quickly? – school got out for the summer on the 21st. We were so grateful for a wonderful teacher this past year and were told his 4th grade teacher is just as wonderful!

+ We’ve spent a lot of time at the parks and soaking up the sun, there’s not much I can do at this point in pregnancy.

+ Mason has fallen in love with kayaking! My parents bought kayaks earlier this year and he finally got out in them and has been asking to go every day since. The below picture sums up the PNW perfectly; the beach, the bay and the mountain! He has taken to kayaking so naturally and I couldn’t be more proud how brave he has been to go out in the water. For someone with anxiety and can be very fearful of certain things; we’ve talked about the sharks/whales/seals that all live in the water and he still isn’t afraid of going out even by himself.

+ We hit up one of the local spraygrounds this morning for the first time this summer, it was the perfect temperature. It’s a good thing I carry a towel with us in the car because everytime we head to a park with a sprayground he always tells me he’s not getting wet and we always end up leaving with him soaking wet. I’m so glad we have so many of these in our area, but we do need some more public outdoor pools though.

How was your June? How has your summer been so far?
