InstaFriday #27 Pregnant and Sugar.

So, you may have noticed on my last post, I'm pregnant.

I've been eating a lot of cereal. A lot.

For the first trimester it was only Cheerios. It was pretty much all I could eat.
 But now that I'm on to my second trimester, I'm moving on to more interesting kinds.
"Eat a wide variety of colors!" my doctor says. So I got Fruit Loops.

(This fruit loop photo is so perfect with my new blog design! I knew I liked this color combo.)

To answer a few questions:

Yes, we have been trying to get pregnant.
We started trying last January and I found out I was expecting just before Christmas.

Yes, we will be finding out the gender.
But I'm not due for another doctors visit for 5 weeks, so I'm trying to be patient.

Yes, I'm feeling ok. Now.
Just wait. I wrote a post when I was 9 weeks pregnant that I'll post soon.
 I just need to edit it for swearing.

In other news..... 

My mom left :( Now who will I go thrifting with?

Collin and I spent a very messy afternoon painting and glueing his valentine box. Robot theme.

I love my boy.

Lydia had plans, so Shane and I took Collin to the aquarium. 

Shane and I spent three nights watching the entire 3rd season of Downton Abbey.
I cried a lot. That scene with Sybil? Oh man. WEEPING.

I didn't take this photo :)

Made the BEST lemon poppyseed muffins after deciding I actually need to follow through on some of my pinterest pins. And I needed some comfort food after Downton Abbey.

We had one beautiful Saturday that actually reached the 50's.
"Mommy, I think I feel Springtime!"

We're not picky though. We hit the park when it's still in the 40s.

And when it gets all wintery again, we warm up in a nice bath with fluffy towels. 

Or just hit Krispy Kreme for warm glazed doughnuts.
You can see Collin is already feeling his sugar rush.

I spent the day before Valentines Day prepping a serious chocolate treat.

There are no better brownies than Ina Garten's Outrageous Brownies.

Kids and I had a Valentine breakfast with candy appetizers and gifts from Grandma.

As for Shane's and my Valentines Day.....he had great intentions.

"I'll be home at 4:00pm to make you dinner. Feed the kids and we'll eat right when they go to bed." 
For the past two years that Shane's been working for this company, he's arrived home early two times out of countless tries. He got home well past 6:00pm with a box of See's chocolate, flowers, a letter and an apologetic face. But really, what better valentines gift could I have then a man who works that hard for his family and still remembers to make days special. 

And these flowers were amazing. Much prettier than the photo shows.

We finally got the kids down at 8:45 and ended up eating cereal for dinner.

But we went out for Shane's birthday on Saturday at our favorite restaurant, so it all turned out alright.

I bought Shane a new watch for his birthday, 
and we had to take to back to the jewelers to get it sized. 
Which in turn lead to me getting a belated Valentine's gift. How on earth did that happen?
Jewelry addiction is a real and wonderful thing. Thank you Shane for being such an enabler.

oh and one more thing.

I ate this when Shane was out of town last night. 

And there is a brownie underneath too.

But no judging. Cause I'm with child.

15 weeks! 25 to go!


life rearranged

Congrats! I'm on the post baby binge phase right now, but thankfully breastfeeding burns it as fast as I can eat it. I'm definitely trying the lemon poppyseed muffins!

I was a cereal addict too during my first pregnancy -- Cheerios, Rice Krispies and Kix were my best friends. Those brownies also look delicious!
