Remember when I couldn’t decide the other day between swimming and hot yoga?   Well I decided to be brave and swim outside.  It wasn’t to bad, the water was nice, but the hard part was getting out.  I lasted for about 26 minutes of laps, and then my hunger goggle issues got the best of me.  I decided to get out and come home for a late afternoon snack. 

While chomping a huge honeycrisp apple I also decided it would be a good night to get some healthy omega –3 fats and cook up some wild salmon.  Nothing fancy, just chopped up a mixture of fresh herbs from the garden and sprinkle  over salmon that has been spread with some dijon mustard

My sweet tooth was kickin’ in big time, so it was an easy decision to pull out some of the Christmas cookies that were snuggled all safely in the freezer. 

I did make it to hot yoga yesterday, and it was glorious.  We also celebrated Ava’s half birthday.  Time flies, I can’t believe my baby is 6 months old already. 

Here she is 2 days after birth at 5 lb 11 oz.


And here she is yesterday at 6 months, a little over 13 and a half pounds.


So far, she is following the foodie footsteps, loving all the foods we have tried, especially the butternut squash from Trader Joe’s.
