Trying to jam pack in all the fun summer things before I have this baby! It’s getting to be quite challenging with the heat (80’s and 90’s all week), but I feel like if I don’t stay mobile, I’m going to gain a bajillion pounds. My hips don’t hurt too much yet and I’m still walking at a normal pace – as long as I wear my belly bra, I’m usually ok to walk a mile or two. The subway can be super stifling though!
This week, I went to the Museum of Food and Drink in Brooklyn. It’s actually a real, legit museum, not one of those pop-up Instagram museums! They had a pretty cool exhibit on the history of Chinatowns – for $10, you get to explore the exhibit, see Chinatown restaurant menus from the early 1900s, learn about Chinese culture in America, and then eat at their Chinese sample station where a chef makes Chinese food while you watch! Definitely a better value for your money than the Museum of Ice Cream. I also went to the new Palette cafe at Bergdorf Goodman – it looks like the house that Betsey Johnson built, super super crazy and gaudy. The food was just meh, as was the service, but the decor was worth seeing. I told my husband I was going to decorate our baby’s nursery like this but he was not amused. 😀
It was my sister’s last weekend in NYC so we celebrated by doing one of our favorite rainy day activities – Escape the Room! I’ve done five of them around the city and I’m 5/5 on escaping. We picked The Haunted Hotel by BrainXcape this time because the set was designed by the same people who made Sleep No More. Of course, it’s totally healthy for a 35 week pregnant woman to be locked in a haunted hotel, right? 😀 Anyway, we made it out with just a couple minutes to spare despite my pregnancy brain, so now I’m 6/6!
Oh, also had another ultrasound this week – the baby still looks pretty smushy and melty. Is it supposed to look like that?
