Wow long time.

It's only been like 7 months....ok so maybe a long time. In
my defense I have actually still been blogging. Just not
here. See all the blogs I follow on the right side of my blog?
Ya, I am a little obsessed with food blogs, so I decided to make
my own!!! So yes I am still here...just not here. :) Come see me at and then you will see that I was never really
gone at all.

P.S. My last post of my adorable new, tiny baby...ya he is still
adorable just not so tiny anymore. More like 22 pounds of a happy baby...
I can't believe he is 7 months old, where did that time go?

Pregnancy Thoughts

Pregnancy is something that unless you go through it you will never really understand it. I can say this now that I have managed to get through the past 9 months. I'm not going to pretend that I understood pregnancy before or that I even wanted to or cared to understand it. I was not the least bit sympathetic but now I have a whole new admiration towards woman and what we are capable of. There really are no words to truly describe pregnancy. It is hard and tiring and this extra weight that has crept up on me is unmanageable and uncomfortable. But, even with all that pregnancy is truly amazing. When you feel your baby moving inside of you, it truly is one of life's greatest moments.

We are about to embark on our next journey....tomorrow we should be welcoming our newest addition. Our love for baby Slane already is amazing considering we have never met the little guy. Our worlds are about to never be the same, ever. We are both excited for that journey and we can't wait to met the little man who has had control over mom for almost a year now. As Cory told Kramer the other night, "Kramer we get normal mommy back soon. Not pregnant mommy." Which translates into mommy who doesn't spill crocodile tears with a drop of a coin or can turn into Satan's spawn at the drop of a hat :)

In the pregnancy process I have come to realize how much of the burden is on the female partner. She's got a construction zone going on in her belly.

Book club favorites

I have been in book club for a few years now and in that time I have read some really good books and some really bad books. I thought I would list my favorites in case anyone is looking for a good read.

This has been my absolute favorite.

Another great one that is coming to a theater near you this summer.

We just finished this book and it was great!

This book is more of a "hard" read but it is great and also coming to a theater near you next winter.

New Goal

recipe card Pictures, Images and Photos

To quit printing off every recipe that looks good to me....I have hundreds of recipes that I can barely sort through let alone cook. Apparently I am also really hungry when printing these because today when looking at them I realize that a lot of them sound pretty disgusting ;) Plus, I can use some of my cookbooks that I always insist on buying.

I have learned two things this year....

1. Cory absolutely despises turkey enchiladas
2. As Cory said, "Why make ranch when you can buy it?"

Apparently neither of my latest two recipes were that big of a hit in our household :)

New year, 2011!!!!

New year, new resolutions, new baby!!!

New years is always a great time to make your "to do list" for the upcoming year. Last year I had big hopes and plans for what I wanted to accomplish. This year I am going to approach the new year a little more differently then I have in the past. I think this year my biggest change is going to be the baby joining our family. This is alot and I think that adjusting to mommy hood will be enough for me rather then worry about my resolutions too. So that being said there is 2 things for the year that I am going to try but I am not going to be to hard on myself if I don't accomplish it. The biggest two things will be resume my working out and second continue my love affair in the kitchen. I absolutely love cooking and hope to get in as many new recipes as I can in the next few months as I know our lives are about to be turned all around :)
