Hello there. Today marks my 41st week being pregnant. I have to say that it has definitely been harder dealing with the fact that this baby is taking her time being born. I have cleaned the floors, reorganized some drawers, put up fall decorations, washed laundry multiple times, and more!
I took a picture last night at 41 weeks and it makes it seem that this baby seems comfortable where she is. Can you see all the veins on my tummy? Crazy but I do have thin skin.
Last night we just took advantage of going to the movie theater and watching The Big Year. We were super surprised there were only 2 other couples at a 9pm showing because the movie was very amusing, but then we figured out that perhaps there were not many people because it was PG. You hardly get to see those come out anymore. LOL

Here are a few things that have been my favorite things of late:
The yoga ball helps me not to be sitting on a couch and helps me stay flexible while the tea helps prepare me for labor when the time comes. I added 2 cinnamon sticks this morning to continue to help the process.
Coconut Nog French Toast
adapted from So Delicious Coconut Nog carton
1/2 cup So Delicious Coconut Nog
1 ripe banana
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 slices day-old Sourdough French baguette, 1/2 inch thick
1 Tablespoon Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread, divided
Maple syrup or agave nectar (optional)
Powdered sugar (optional)
In a pie plate, mash banana with fork and combine the Coconut Nog, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla until smooth.
Add the bread slices and allow the bread to soak in the mixture, 3 minutes on each side.
In a non-stick skillet, over medium low heat, melt 1/2 Tablespoon of Earth Balance margarine.
Add 4 bread slices and slowly cook until nicely browned on both sides. Serve with maple syrup or agave nectar and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
Add more banana slices or other fruit to compliment this lovely breakfast. Thanks So Delicious for a nice recipe! 😀
