Giveaway Winner and a few Updates

It's a gorgeous sunny day here in New York!
I cannot believe that I saw "81" degrees yesterday.
Isn't it late October??
Looks like we'll be getting an awful forecast for Halloween, 
so we'll take what we can get.

In other news,
I concocted an iron-friendly smoothie recipe:
  I just threw it in a blender and it came out looking like
{go ahead, admit poo}
It won't be my first smoothie choice in life,
but if I'm taking in the essentials,
and it's healthy for baby (and me.)
I'm in.
I also am trying out oatmeal again.
It seemed to have been a heartburn trigger around month 5,
but everyone keeps suggesting oatmeal & raisins, 
so here it goes...
I tossed the raisins in the last 2 minutes of the oatmeal cooking,
which makes them ooey gooey!
I then stirred a little maple syrup in with two sliced strawberries.
It was delish; I hope it doesn't bother me!!
Food is on my mind 24/7.
I am happy to report that I did enjoy 3 soft Barbacoa tacos from Chipotle
last night.
I had a little reflux issue around midnight,
popped a few tums, and added one more pillow to my stack.
It was soooo worth it.
Oh yeah!
Tuesday we went out to the restaurant where
my sweet husband proposed in the parking lot.
{Our story here}
We had our first kiss under a lamplight there January 18th, 2008
and 3 years ago we went back there.
He got down on one knee,
asked me to make him the happiest man in the world,
and I said yes.
We enjoyed an Italian meal,
and although his knee did not get rain-soaked
from kneeling,
we still shared a lamplight kiss
with baby bump between us.
My sister is having a Halloween Party this weekend,
Joe and I will be dressing up and attending...
My costume is most likely inappropriate and quite funny, if I may add.
 I'll be trying to do a 30 week bumpdate (soon) as that's where I am at today!!
Have a great day & enjoy the warmth if you're getting it like meeee!
