35 weeks

Weeks: 35

Cravings: Chocolate. Chocolate. Did I mention that I'm eating every piece of chocolate in sight?

Food Aversions: None!

Heartbeat: high 140's

Gender: precious baby BOY!

Extras: I think it's safe to say that we're like 85% ready for this little guy. We are pretty much physically ready for him as far as his room being ready, all the clothes and accessories are washed, his moses basket is set up, the swing has been washed and is ready, the diaper bag is packed...that other 15% is me not being mentally prepared. The thought of having a newborn and a very busy 2 year old is daunting at times but I know it will end up being great. We already took the big leap of going from 0 kids to 1, so what's another one? I wish I could say that I'm feeling great but truth is, I feel like a fat pig who waddles around. I love being pregnant but I think the cuteness of having a belly has worn off and I'm over all of my maternity clothes. My mom said it best last night, I'm just a grumpy pregnant lady. I blame the dude and his testosterone. :) My weight is not pretty, I think this is the last check in where I will be sharing these numbers with y'all. 35 weeks and I'm up 26 whopping pounds of lard! I try to make myself feel better by reminding myself that Will is around 5.5 pounds right now and add another 5 pounds with all the other things in there and that's at least 10 pounds of baby. Whatever, it's all for a great cause and I know once I get to hold our boy I won't care how large I am. Next up on the things to do list is pack our hospital bag next week along with Kate's bag for the grandparents houses, get the cars detailed and install the infant car seat. Crazy!


The little dude is now about 5 pounds, the size of a honeydew!

You should feel better about yourself after reading this, don't you?

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store!
