Sushi Jelly Shots

Boozy thai coconut milk, fruit roll ups and gummy fish. Doesn’t get much better than that. (Did I ever mention how I can’t eat just one fruit roll up? I heart Fruit by the Foot.)

Check out the easy recipe on Tablespoon! Happy almost Friday friends.

Life Lately: Weeks 15, 16 and 17

Gah! I was not that great at making sure I got these done every week when I was pregnant with Austin. I should have known it would be harder to write updates when I am also chasing around a toddler on top of a full time job. Better late than never though right?

How I’m Feeling

I feel good! But that is relative to how I was feeling for most of June and all of July which was terrible. The worst of my symptoms lately has been heartburn. I have to take Zantac as soon as I wake up and then again around dinner time. Otherwise it burns, oh it burns and it makes me feel nauseous again too.

I probably get up from my desk at work to pee every 20 mins. So that sucks but it’s not a huge deal.

This week in particular (week 17) I have been totally out of breath. Just talking to people at work makes me winded. I also got a little virus. I don’t know what it was but I had a fever on Monday and it was getting a little too close to 101 so I called my doctor. They had me take some tylenol cold and flu and rest. I was actually better by the next day. Phew.

But pretty much right now I feel good.

What I’m Eating

Spicy Bloody Mary Jelly Shots (in Real Tomatoes)

I made these for Tablespoon a few weeks ago. How cool are they? A boozy, spicy tomato. I have a similar shot in my book as well but I use little bite sized campari tomatoes.

Head on over and check out the easy recipe.

Raspberry and Sparkling Peach Sangria and Jello Shots!

I saw Halloween candy at the grocery store yesterday… (straight face)

Don’t get me wrong, I love fall, but it’s not time yet!

It’s still time to savor peaches and raspberries and summer sangria on the back deck.

I still need to take in more tiki torches, fireflies, and the smell of sunblock on Austin’s baby soft skin.
