Crawling and Cooking January 10, 2013

She’s so pretty in pink! I love watching her scoot across the floor now. It’s not a crawl per se, but she can move rather quickly when she wants to!

She moves around from toy to toy pushing them all over the place.


Hello, ruffles, you are so adorable.

One of the best parts of having a baby who can finally play by herself is being able to cook again! (Let’s be honest, I’ve never been much of a cook, but a girl’s gotta eat!)

I recently learned that you can cook healthy recipes by swapping Chobani yogurt for lots of different ingredients — who knew!

They have a whole bunch of new recipes and ideas for swapping out the bad stuff for the good stuff.

Right after we came back from Christmas, I jumped into the kitchen to make something healthy. (You’re supposed to eat healthy right after New Year’s right?) I made this Orzo Salad (but subbed Mini Star Pasta instead). It was pretty good!

Got any healthy recipe swap ideas? I’m in the market! Especially since Adele eats what we eat now! There’s never been a better time to clean up our diets! (I’ll just save the ice cream for after she goes to bed. Shhh!)

Apparently cooking puts Adele to sleep!


PS… what was Daddy making back there?

Yep. Bloody Marys. Nice.

Let’s play a game called “What’s Bigger? Adele’s head or This Piece of Cake”?

The answer: The piece of Cake that Erica bought me for my birthday! And for the record, it comfortably served four people. (Me being two of them).

Ladies and Gentlemen: Today, I am wearing jeans… with a button!! Hooray for no more maternity pants!! (Although I will miss those stretchy pants. They were oh, so comfortable!)


So I did what anyone would do to celebrate:

CAKE & SPRINKLES! I love Target.


The Primal Need for Mocha May 6, 2012

Yesterday I spent the morning running errands (recycling, post office, Target, etc).  On the way home, I stopped in Starbucks and decided I absolutely must have an Iced Tea. So I ordered one and waited for my name to be called. While I was waiting, I saw a picture of their new Frappucino… Mocha Cookie Crumble.

Starbucks-Cookie Crumble


I looked at the sign… and looked away…. and then looked back again. I needed it. NOW. In the most primal sort of need possible. So I got back in line and tried to make eye contact with the barista.  “Excuse me, did you already make my Iced Tea? No? OMG Thank god. I need to change my order.”

So then the poor cashier guy had to try to figure out how to refund my iced tea so he could charge me more (almost double!) for the Frappucino. I don’t think many people ‘return’ drinks at Starbucks and he tried for about 10 minutes to figure it out. I apologized, tried to stick out my bump as much as possible and pray they would take pity on the pathetic pregnant woman who NEEDED this Cookie Crumble Frappucino.

After two employees fought with the computer to figure out how to charge me the difference, they finally caved and just gave it to me for the same price as the tea (SCORE!!!!) I savored every drop of that drink. (DUDE, even the whipped cream is chocolate! No joke!)


That was the first ‘coffee’ I’d had in almost 9 months! (I’ve been sticking to tea). But I feel a new obsession coming on. This could be dangerous.
