Things That Make Me Say Yeay

Friday, April 18, 2014


I caved and bought my first pair of Birkenstocks.  Best decision ever.  My husband hates them (he called them butt ugly...so rude ha) but he can hate away because they are the most comfortable shoes in the world.  Seriously these babies are coming with me everywhere!  


A new (to me) pair of vintage Danish chairs that my aunt found at a thrift store.  We had them reupholstered and I could not be happier with how they turned out.  I am still debating whether or not to stain them walnut or leave them be.  Thoughts? 


Max (my little baking helper/mess maker) and I made our favorite triple berry cobbler with some  berries we picked up from the farmer's market.  This lasted a while 8 hours in our house before every last bit was gone.  Recipe can be found here


Dining room progress.  We added a new light and hung a mirror, which was a killer Craig's List find.  Things are coming along! 

Life lately has been busy in a good way.  I have been putting all my energy it seems into house projects.  We have quite a bit going on over here and I will share more updates soon.  I also have an appointment this morning with my endocrinologist to talk to him about taking a pump vacation and going back to manual insulin injections.  After reading all of the awesome feedback here I am even more pumped (pun intended) to go pump free for the summer.  

Have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Your house is so beautiful! You're doing a great job decorating. I think the chairs would look great with a different stain. The contrast would be really nice.

That cobbler looks delish! I have a pair of Birks that are about 10 years old, and they are still alive and kicking. I love them!

Happy Friday!

I am curious to see how you handle working out when on a pump vacation! You always inspire me Lindsay! I remember being so jealous when you posted (a loooong while ago) that you were back to your pre preg weight - we had our babes around the same time and no matter what I do, I can't lose those last 10 lbs. I would really love to take a pump vacation but have no idea how I would make it through a run or a spin class without bottoming out!! Please keep us posted on everything :)

I have only used injections since diagnosis last year but really doubt I will ever use a pump. My hba1c is 5.6 but I also eat paleo and low carb. I only inject long acting levemir before bed and then depending on what I eat sometimes one or no injections daily. I tend to have more carbs in one meal a day and that might need an injection. It's easy to forget I have diabetes unless I want to indulge which definitely makes things harder to manage. I also live in Australia so we have hot weather a lot and I don't want to hide a pump in bathers or summer outfits!

Leave the chairs. OMG. I almost died when I saw those Lindsay! Can your aunt go thrift shopping for me???!!! ;) Also good on you for those birkenstocks. Haha. Maybe Ian will get a pair someday for himself once he realizes how comfy you are!! ;)

Becca said...

wondering where you got your chandelier??

Eleanor Rae said...

I love Birkenstocks too…and yay for it being warm enough for sandals! xxx

Love, love my Birks! I had a severe case of plantar fasciitis a couple years ago. Several people recommended that I wear Birks, and I've been hooked ever since. I wish every shoe felt like them.

I felt the same way your husband does about the Birkenstocks. But they are SO COMFY I wear them all the time. When it was time for a new pair, one of their newer styles, piazza, caught my eye. Very stylish and just as comfy.
