Some news…


I have been dying to share this news with you guys! 12 weeks seems like an eternity when all you want to do is tell every living soul this very exciting news.  I hope this explains why things have been a bit slow around here lately. I’ve had a really hard time finding food that sounds good and sweets haven’t been one of them. I’ve just started to enjoy eating desserts again though mostly I’m very into mashed potatoes, (I crave them daily,) cheese, fruits and veggies. Meat is off limits and rich sweets too. (Also I love pickles- lots and lots of pickles- I’m so cliché.)  Other than that- I’ve been feeling wonderful! A bit tired here and there but mostly happy and excited.

PS-  Oh yeah I’m due January 22nd! Lots more updates and baby-related posts to come!! :)
