Today I had the rare privilege of attending a baby shower. The mother-to-be is expecting a baby girl…so I spent the afternoon in a very pink daze.
This afternoon’s events got me to thinking about baby names. I’ve spent more time thinking about baby names than your average 22-year-old—my former roommate and I have probably spent hours discussing the topic over the course of our friendship (right, Alanna?). In the South, it’s traditional to name a child after the mother’s maiden name…but I think I’m going to have to break with tradition on that one. I mean, seriously? Yoder? That’s just asking for my kid to be teased. Instead, in accordance with my English-major background, I’ve always dreamed of naming my future children after my favorite literary heroines. Who knows? Ten years from now, there might be a baby Broc named Scarlett or Annabel Lee running around 😉
What are your favorite baby names? Or, if you are already a parent, what is the significance of your child’s name? While I derive endless enjoyment from reading about the heroines mentioned above, I’m not sure they’re exactly appropriate for children born after 1880.
Alright, onto the food!
After a 6 miler yesterday morning, I came home in the mood for a savory treat. Healthified McMuffin fit the bill.
For lunch, I made another Hugh Jass sandwich with tomato-basil hummus and shroomies.
Remember the lunch I had dreamed about on Thursday? It finally became a reality last night for dinner, with a little help from the GF.
Before heading out the shower, I fueled up with a cheese-y egg white wrap. ‘Twas messy but so scrumptious.
By the time I returned home, I was so not in the mood to cook. Hence, a lame salad for dinner.
OK, I am off to get a little quality time with the fam. G’night!
