Yo quiero bailar

My first evening salsa class on Thursday went pretty well! I was a bit nervous because it was a beginners/intermediate class and I was afraid of running into two problems
1.) the beginner's class was going to be too easy
2.) I didn't want people to think I wanted to join the beginner's class to show off or anything

Side note- I would go to the advance class to challenge myself but I think it would be unfair to those that would be uncomfortable with me being pregnant and I really wouldn't want to stand in their way. Also, I will get bigger and I'm sure my balance will get thrown off so the vision of me trying to learn advance moves in that state is a bit scary!

Thankfully, the B/I class seemed like a good fit for now. I think I'll stick with this class for now and then after baby switch to advanced.

After salsa, T and I had some Chinese delivery- I had a lot little bit of everything plus I'm still on my quest to find the biggest, yet crispy eggroll! This was a yummy plate of food, and definitely better than what we ate in Rockford- yippee! We're still planning on trying out different Chinese deliveries since we have others to choose from.
Yesterday, we ran some errands and ate at Babylon for lunch, our local Middle Eastern joint. I thought it was delicious and while T agreed, he felt it was missing that certain authentic taste, something I think only he would know about because it was news to me!
I started with this thick and delicious lentil soup that came with my kabob combination platter.
The rice was really flavorful and delicious, kinda reminding me of Persian rice but the meat was a bit tough and I ended up getting rice all over myself and the floor while trying to cut into the meat. I swear one of the waitresses gave the floor a stink eye when she saw my mess- oops!! :-). I would definitely go back to Babylon for lunch! (if they let me back in, ha!)
We stopped by Binny's on our way back home and I spotted this awesome Sauvignon Blanc! Okay, I'm not sure if it's really awesome but it has an awesome name! I'll be back for you my friend..
Bertolli's chicken linguine for dinner with a side salad and unpictured garlic bread. The Bertolli's was good but it was a bit underseasoned according to T who had to put in some additional seasonings, and the portion size was a bit small. Other than that, it was pretty good!
Yes, I took this impromptu picture on our stairs!!
This morning, I did a bit of home cleaning in preparation for my friend and her baby coming over and I had my first fruit smoothie in my Vitamix. I found out my Vitamix works so much better in the U.S. which I'm extremely happy about. I think it had something to do with the transformer we were running the wire through which wasn't giving enough power to blend properly.
