Today I am linking up with Karli and April (per usual). So let's get right down to business.
One. As you are reading this, I am most likely being prepped for surgery. Yes surgery day is finally here (not that I waited that long for it). On Wednesday I found out I have some diastatis rectus going on (separation of the abs) with a bit of my colon, skin and fat are protruding through a 2.86 cm hole. They are fixing my hernia and it is a pretty invasive process. I won't go into details but last time it was a 30 minute surgery and this time it will be an hour to hour and a half procedure. My doctor last time didn't do that great of a job, so this is a process of fixing my scar, sewing my abs, fixing the hole, securing my belly button way down and putting me back together with stitches and not glue. So please send positive thoughts that my surgery goes well and I don't have to have a drain all weekend. Yikes.
Two. My dads best friend travels to Seattle several times a year and always brings back tons of salmon, halibut and crab. And we get the benefit of scoring some. So I searched for a new recipe since we have made this one several times lately (Citrus Salmon with a Strawberry Avocado Salsa). We made this salmon recipe this week. Sure they are similar, but I can't pass up avocado. I want it on ALL THE THINGS. And let me tell you, it was a hit. So good. I love the seasoning crust on top of the salmon. We did change a few things. We preheated our grill to 450*, put the salmon on a piece of soaked cedar and then grill it for 12 to 15 minutes. I didn't want to ruin the salmon by grilling it on the actual grates because our grill gets really hot and I love using cedar planks. Do yourself a favor and try this.
Three. Fuller House. I am super pumped the reboot came out on Netflix today. After surgery and a nap, I plan on binge watching as many episodes as I can. I really hope it doesn't disappoint because I grew up watching the original. I used to have sleepovers and we would always watch TGIF. I may even try to watch an episode at the hospital while I am waiting in pre-op. Are you planning on watching it?
Four. Osh Kosh is killing it with baby girls Spring and Summer line. My sweet in-laws recently hit up Osh Kosh and bought the girls a ton of new clothes for our Mexico trip disguised as Valentine's Day presents. So very cute.
Five. I wanted to give my parents a shout out for their anniversary. Today my parents have been married for 33 years. That's pretty amazing. So Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! Thank you for sharing your anniversary with me (taking me to my surgery). I hope you have an amazing time at dinner tonight!
Six. The girls daycare often sends us pictures of the girls and we received this little gem. I couldn't help but chuckle at it. She was so tired from playing that she passed out like this.
Have a good weekend all!
