week 24

Everything is going great – I cannot complain at all. We started painting the nursery this past weekend (technically week 25) and it’s killing me not to share a sneak peek, BUT I know waiting until it’s completed will be even better. However, the next weekly update pic I take will have a tiny glimpse [...]

crack brownies

I guess the technical name of these brownies is: gooey cookies and cream double chocolate cake bars. Ain’t nobody got time for that! Let’s be honest, they should be called crack brownies. What else would you call layer upon layer of delicious chocolate and sugar? Let me explain. Layer 1 – thick, devil’s food cake made in [...]

week 21

  So I thought I was going to get caught up by this week, but not so much. This is about 2 weeks ago…so I’m close! I’m dead serious about the heartburn, I am really dreading it if I get it. Although I’ve heard it means your baby will be born with a lot of [...]

week 19

19 weeks was about 3 weeks ago – slowly catching up on the updates! Still working on finding a daycare, it’s crazy. I never imagined you’d have to call for the good places LONG before we even told people we were pregnant. Lots of movement these days, mostly first thing in the morning. I guess [...]

Zucchini Noodles with Bacon & Shrimp

I’ve been wanting to try the zucchini “noodle” trend for a while now. My mom got me a julienne peeler for my birthday so I figured I’d better give it a try. I didn’t have zucchini, but I had yellow summer squash courtesy of my baby brother so I used that instead. The peeler wasn’t the [...]

week 17

Almost caught up to the present (21 1/2 weeks) – after the first trimester, time has just flown by. I nested early and need to get some of that motivation back to actually start on/finish the nursery.   Went to Washington D.C. with my mom to celebrate her upcoming 50th birthday. We did and saw [...]

easy summer app | cantaloupe skewers

  We were hosting dinner club and I needed a quick and light appetizer, as we were having bratwurst and mac and cheese for dinner (very heavy). A quick search of my pinterest board, found me these little cantaloupe, mozzarella, prosciutto skewers from the Comfort of Cooking site. I gave it my own spin by [...]

weeks 12 & 14

I’m combining weeks 12 and 14 in one update because both are a little ‘lite’ on the subject. I’m telling you, I was pretty lazy in the beginning. Here is the adorable adirondack chair that Jess got us to match our front porch chairs. I’m obsessed with this little thing!   And apparently week 14 [...]

catching up AND week 11

Catching up with the world since my four month hiatus… I think my last post was about 1 week before I found THIS out. So you’ll hopefully understand that my absence has been caused by sheer busyness of growing another human being in my body. In the beginning I was super duper tired and lazy, [...]

Two Olive Garden Knock-Offs

A couple months ago, I shared a 5-ingredient Zuppa Toscana Olive Garden knock-off recipe.  It was so good and quick, I recently made it again. I like using the spicy Italian sausage to give it even more flavor. And in the SAME week I made this  chicken gnocchi soup that is also an Olive Garden [...]
