Hadley's big girl room + 6 months pregnant!

Thursday, January 15, 2015

Hey party people :)

As you may have read, last weekend we said bye bye to Hadley's crib and HELLO to a ginormous big girl bed (and some sleepless nights). You can find that post here. It's been a whirlwind but I am super excited to decorate and make it all cozy in there for her!

I decided to put together a little inspiration board to help us plan her room out. We're going to paint in a few weeks and once we finish putting her space together it'll be on to the nursery! HOLY cow! Two little gals next door to each other.. this should be FUN/INTERESTING/EXHAUSTING ;)

I love all the white, black and grey with pops of bright blue, pink and yellow! We're keeping the elephant theme going from her nursery and adding some whimsical circus elements with the bicycles and canopy. I can't wait to see it all together!

In other news, I hit the 6 month mark yesterday with #thompsonnumbatwo !!!

It's crazy to think she'll be here in just 3 short months... I can't wait to meet you baby girl!!!!

My pregnancy is still going really well. I feel great and don't have many complaints other than gross varicose veins. I don't feel like those count though because I've had them since I was twelve. I know, how UNCOOL is that shit? Thanks gymnastics + genetics, you dirty whores. I'm looking into getting them zapped (correct medical terminology) after the baby so we'll see how that goes.

My cravings have kicked up a little bit lately. The other night all I wanted was crab cakes and some rich chocolate cake. So last night I made my dad's famous homemade crab cakes and even though I almost ripped my entire finger nail off (BLAST YOU COSTCO PACKAGING) they REALLLY hit the spot. They're SUPER easy to make too (recipe below).

Jeff's Famous Crab Cakes

What you need...

16 oz fresh jumbo lump crab meat, pre-cooked
1/2 cup mayonnaise
squirt of yellow mustard
dash of worcestershire sauce
Old Bay seasoning
dash of onion powder
dash of celery salt
dash of dry mustard
dash of salt
dash of pepper
handful of panko or breadcrumbs

What you do...

Turn your oven on to high broil.

Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, worcestershire, couple shakes of Old Bay seasoning and the rest of the dry spices in a medium sized bowl. Toss in the crab meat and gently fold together. Add the panko last.

Roll into large balls with your hands and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle more Old Bay over top if you'd like. We love that shit here on the Chesapeake Bay!!!

*KEY STEP* Place your crab cakes in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before baking. This will help them hold their shape while cooking.

Once done chilling, immediately broil on high until golden brown. Takes about 8-10 minutes depending on size of crab cakes.

Serve with some tartar sauce.


Enjoy my friends,


  1. Thank you for posting this recipe!!! I'm actually going to a potluck in 2 days that I (of course) JUST found out about and did not want to be the girl who just brought wine (or cook those same damn meatballs for the 9238th time). Thanks!!!!!!

    1. OH NICE! They're seriously so sinchy and SUCH a crowd pleaser. And you can make them miniature if you want to make them more snacky/adorable/GREAT. You're welcome, I love you!
