Adele has a history of drooling after my delicious looking drinks. Case in point:

So while in Hawaii, it was no surprise that she was lusting after my Frozen Lava Flow. I don’t blame her.




I just couldn’t torture this cute little face any longer….

…so I made a deal with her. Rum for mommy, pineapple for baby.



It’s safe to say… she LOVED it.




She ate it all the way to the rind! Note to self… buy pineapple at home.


In other “Baby Hawaii Food News”… Adele had tastes of a non-alcoholic coconut smoothie, whipped cream from a German Chocolate Cake dessert, and um…. an entire half of a mango shaved ice. (She would have ate the whole thing if I’d let her).



Life’s simple pleasures, right?

Apparently cooking puts Adele to sleep!


PS… what was Daddy making back there?

Yep. Bloody Marys. Nice.

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.


Hamburgers, Hollywood and Heat April 21, 2012

It was so nice to have my mom in town this week. We had a blast at my shower and it was so cool she was able to be there. The rest of the week was filled with a mix of relaxation, touristy things, and putting the baby’s room together.

Sunday night after the shower, we stayed in and cooked sliders on the grill. Delicious!

Monday, was ‘Marathon Monday’! Wish I could have been there to cheer on all the runners! I heard it was super hot! Can’t believe it’s now been TWO years since I ran it!

We decided to go enjoy downtown Los Angeles for the day. We went to the gorgeous Public Library and then to City Hall. You can go to the top of the building and see the amazing views of the city. I had never been!

Mom is afraid of heights, but I think she really liked it.

We saw the Disney Concert Hall, where we took some photos a few weeks back!

We were told to put our ‘visitor’ sticker in an ‘obvious place’. I chose my belly since you can’t miss it!



It was SO hot that all that walking downtown really did me in. I was completely pooped by the end. We spent the rest of the day home after that.

Tuesday, we had a VIP tour of Warner Brothers scheduled…. or so we thought. Apparently I had booked it for the wrong day. Oops, blame the baby brain! But thankfully they let us on anyways. I had been on the WB lot before, but I had never done the official tour.

This was the old exterior set of ER! It is supposed to look like the L-Train in Chicago.

This is the soundstage that ‘Friends’ was filmed in!

They still have the ‘Central Perk’ set assembled in another building.

The famous friends couch!!

I wear sunglasses inside because we were in Hollywood and I have to be cool. Bahaha.

I just realized how coordinated our shirts were! Totally on purpose.



We saw a bunch more sets and got to visit the prop house. If anyone needs a ‘Seal of the President’, take your pick!

I believe after the tour, we went home to take an afternoon nap, but before sunset, we headed out again to snap some photos of the Hollywood Sign.




Hi Daddy! Can you believe our baby will be born in Los Angeles? So surreal we live here!

I have some more pictures from this little photoshoot, but I’ll save them for my weekly update. =) Oh, the suspense!

After this, we made a simple ‘Make-Your-Own-Tacos’ meal and then headed over to see a taping of the Jimmy Kimmel Show. PS. This was the first time my mom had ever had guacamole! What?!

The last day of my mom’s visit was all about baby. We had an OB appointment first. Baby is expected to be around 7lbs, 9oz! We’ll see if that’s accurate! Heartbeat is still strong and baby is still head down. YAY!

That night, we had our maternity tour at the hospital. It was awesome. I’ll fill you in on that in my weekly update post as well.


What a week! Had a blast! And now I need another nap. ha!
