Week 14: Disney and the Getty all in one week!

Week 14 is here and has been the first week that I have really felt like myself.

I went some places this week! When Matt got back from Japan, he took me to the Blue Bayou Restaurant at Disneyland, located inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.

The seafood bouillabaisse was amazing, unfortunately it's not what I ordered, It was Matt's. He's a peach for letting me have some. I got the steak, I like steak, but I don't like steak cooked until its a piece of shoe leather. #lessonslearned 

Also winning because I didn't have to wait in line for a mint julep. Unlimited refills made my day. Everyone needs to do a date a Blue Bayou restaurant. It really is the coolest!

I also made a stop in downtown Disney for the Disney Home store. It's just got everything you could imagine in there. I bought a couple of trinkets, but didn't get to buy nearly everything that I wanted. Maybe one day. 

This week I also went to the Getty with my fairy Godmother, Sandal. I've promised her 3 different times that I would take her and they all haven't worked out UNTIL this time.

So we figured before California had another mudslide and slew of wildfires and the Getty becomes one with mother earth, we would go!

We decided to take in the views outside for a bit as well. Just amazing. The museum really was as amazing as everyone says it is. It truly is a must see. I was in awe of how well preserved items in the museum were kept.

One thing i've always loved about art is, it means something different to everyone. I love how artists create paintings/sculptures that reflected their own lives.

From the Getty, you can see the entire Downtown LA skyline. Gorgeous. It's still hard to believe that sometimes I live so close to all these things! #perksofmilitarylife

Oh yes, on to baby things. 

So this week I also went to the perinatologist for the first time. Nothing like waiting till the last second. Not my fault though, yes, there is a huge rant there. But i'll save my energy for this sweet baby. 

When I saw this beyond healthy little baby just baking away, all my anxiety just melted away. Babies do that to you. 
They make you realize what's important and what's not. 

This week i've wanted to eat everything in sight. I also notice my cravings are a bit different. 

Cravings: Ramen, SALT, Guacamole, SALT, Spicy Thai food,  seriously though it's difficult to say no to all this salt lately. I feel extra guilty at work when I tell a patient, "No, you can't have more than 1 gram of salt per day" and then I go to the break room and eat THREE PIECES OF PIZZA, equalling 3 days worth  of salt for them.  

Oh well. I have been making more of an attempt to cook at home this week and I think that's why I feel better. Minus all the pizza i've consumed. 

Aversions: Eggs. I don't know what it is but I still can't do it.  

This week was super full! I've know started a full bucket list of things to do and eat before we leave here. Yes, were still committed for another year, but it goes by fast. Babies tend to make time fly. 

California people: Where are all the places I need to go???
