(Pre-quiz info)
-I woke up this morning with the sneaking suspicion a teeny tiny elf crawled down my throat in the night, then proceeded to scrape the back of my throat with a wire brush.....good times.

Whilst kissing my love good bye this morning I had a coughing fit so intense it caused me to:

A) pee my pants

B) start gagging (thus bringing up my Cookie Crisp)

C) look at Stone for help only to have him stare back with a look of horror etched across his face

D) all of the above

If you answered 'D' you get an A+ for the day!....good times.

PS: Sorry if this was TMI, but it was actually quite funny. (after the fact)

to show the bump or to not show the bump....that is the question

Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

Summer is upon us and the age old task of purchasing new swimsuits is upon me.

This year being the year that it is, (the year I have a growing baby in my belly all summer) I have been chewing on whether or not to bare it all this summer.

Well I won't be 'baring' everything...jeez!

I've decided to embrace the bump and show it off...sometimes

Probably not if/when I am at a beach or a pool party, but when hanging with the family by the pool....


In 6-10 businesses days I will be rockin this swimsuit top:

With these bottoms:

(both in 'grape'...the color of the top)

PS: It's a definite possibility that said swimsuit will arrive, be tried on and promptly sent back to where it came from.

reason #364 why I love Stone

Because after a long day of work
I came home only to have to leave again for the evening.
Whilst getting ready to walk back out the door he says,
"In the words of Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds.....when will I see you again???"
Oh Stone, if I had a nickel for every time you made me laugh....

So here it is

'the bump'

(almost 15 weeks)


I've started accepting food from strangers.

It might be a problem....

A client walked into work the other day (in my defense she is a 'regular') and asked if any of us were hungry. I had just eaten lunch, but before I could stop myself "whatcha got?" came flying out of my mouth!
I accepted a hard taco from a stranger.

Not even a hard taco supreme...just a regular old hard taco!
I think I need help.....

potatoes + cheese = YES PLEASE! (REVISED)

Cheesy Potatoes

1 bag of shredded potatoes (you know...like for hashbrowns)
1 16oz container of sour cream (you will you 3/4 of it)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 bag of shredded cheddar (save some to sprinkle on top)
salt and pepper to taste

ALSO....a bit of onion...dried or fresh it doesn't matter (sorry I forgot this on the original post)

to do-
in a bowl, mix all of the ingredients together
scrape them into a baking dish (I used 13x9, but you can use whatever)
bake at 350 for one hour


PS: don't expect there to be leftovers

PPS: not having a camera is really cramping my style...you will just have to take my word for it that this not only looks delicious, it actually is delicious...plus the dish I used to bake this cheesy goodness in was missing a handle and didn't look so cute.

PPPS: thank you dear sister for the recipe!
