I'm teeing this post up on Thursday afternoon, because frankly -- who knows what's in store for us each minute this week? If you follow me on Instagram, you know that the baby has not yet made an appearance ... but we are keeping our fingers crossed for any day now.
In college, in our sorority we all ran consistently late -- we referred to it as "ADPi Time". Well, this little gal seems to have inherited that way of life as well. She's already on ADPi time.
Anyway, time for Five On Friday with my lovely cohostesses Christina, Darci, and Natasha. :)

A huge congratulations to Christina and her husband Matt on the arrival of their sweet baby girl, Caroline! I am overjoyed for them and I am looking forward to many playdates with our kiddos in the future!
Since I've been out on maternity leave, I've done a good bit of walking -- some around the neighborhood, some in the mall. The mall walking is tempting. I recently picked up this adorable lemon halter and diaper cover (in size 12 months so she'll have it next summer) from Gymboree. It's available here. It would make the cutest gift and I'm considering getting the center of the top monogrammed as well!
They also had this sweet lemon dress, but it was on big sale and wasn't available in the right size I needed in our store.

Speaking of those walks, thankful for gorgeous weather this week that has allowed me to take advantage of getting outdoors! I use the Map My Run app (free version) to track my distance. I've been aiming for 1-2 mile walks daily just depending on how much energy I have. Wearing my pedometer, I'm getting around 5,000-6,000 total steps daily, which is about half of what's recommended, but it works for me now. :)

This past Sunday evening, we cooked enchiladas and refried beans, and I used this recipe. I'd just been heating up the canned beans before on the stovetop. This was just as easy and way tastier. Highly recommend!

It's almost go-time, y'all ... every night I walk in the nursery and look at the hospital bags I have ready to grab. Looking forward to the day when we are packing up the car! I'll do a post soon with my hospital bag essentials.
Follow along with me on Instagram (@alizadventures) and I promise I'll share the baby news as soon as we can! EEK - almost time :)
