February has been a fun month! There were some highlights though: I told my family, friends and you about my pregnancy, had several photo shoots, dinners and get-together with friends, made video’s, ate a lot of sweet food and obviously regularly worked out in the gym.

We started with a visit to my brother and sister-in with the news that I’m pregnant. We ate pancakes to celebrate the great news.
My boyfriend and I made a video in which we told you about my pregnancy. Watch it here.
Eating out with Annewil and Deborah (whom you know from their guest blogs and interviews!). Once in a while we plan a dinner date. We especially try out healthy food places. Annewil’s boyfriend was in India at this time, so of course we had to make a picture in this riksja. My bun did not quite fit into the bike.
Whoehoe! Pink kettlebell! I can lift heavier than this though. Just so you know.
We had our second ultrasound again! On this picture our little one is 12 weeks and 4 days old. The “15 cm” does not represent the length of the baby; it was in fact the size of a plum. We also saw the nub clearly come into view. You can read more about the nub and this ultrasound here.
I was booked for a number of covers. These covers are not published yet, so all I have now is this #backstagefie #lotd. The photographer appeared to be also pregnant; (almost) exactly as long as I am! She will shoot me again as soon I have a visible pregnancy belly. Nice!
We ate stir fried sweet potato with maple syrup, almonds and raisins. This is by far my favorite. If this seems nice to you, take a look at this recipe, which is similar.
Going down town with friends a drink. That obviously meant alcohol-free drinks for me.
At work with my hubby! Maarten now has one day off during the week (he’s a senior consultant for the government). This week he had some work to do on his off-day, so we went to a local café to work.
I had a shoot in the woods where I always used to run with my brother. I am very happy with the result!
Of course I worked out as well in February. A fun new thing in the gym: rings!
I had an urge to buy these, but I could resist.
This month it was Valentine! The flowers didn’t come from Maarten, unfortunately (new year, new chances, hun! ;))
We ate this delicious quinoa beet salad with pomegranate seeds. Again a sweet dish, indeed, as I found it hard to eat my veggies and healthy in general last month. The recipe can be found here.
Again sweet food: pumpkin soup. Yep, February was a tricky month for me, food-wise!
Fortunately, the sun was shining and the spring flowers popped their heads above the ground to support me mentally. It helped!
Tea and TV while I was prepping for a party at my friend Annewil.
I was invited as a VIP for the Beauty Awards. Unfortunately I had to leave before the dessert, because I had to get up on time the next day because of a photoshoot.
So far the highlights of last month! March has already brought me fun things, like shooting in France and visiting our aunt and her baby cats. I am looking forward to the rest of the month!
What was the best thing that February brought you?
