Too much going on


Long time, no see. I ended up having to get a new phone and taking my computer to the shop to get a new battery. Frustrating. Especially since I just bought the computer refurbed less than a year ago from the same place. Thank you MacAuthority. Anyway, I’ve had less than normal energy and drive to write lately because we found out we are having baby número 3. Woot! Woot! But, dang, am I tired. I fell off of the cooking wagon for several weeks just giving in to my cravings for burritos and burgers and anything not cooked by me.
I’ve resolved to do better because I want my boys to have healthy eating habits not to mention I’d like to live long enough and have a decent quality of life as I age to see my boys through their middle/late adulthood. Anyway, the following are some scenes from how I’ve been spending my time, from zoo days to fruit days, to a new play set to the best water toy $35 can buy…


Drinkie, Drinkie


Last nite, while I was pinning things on my boards on Pinterest, it occurred to me that quite a few of the pins I pick for my belly have to do with alcoholic drinks. It’s funny, because I have never been a big drinker. If anything, I have enjoyed having a few beers. I do like vodka tonics, but otherwise, hard alcohol has never appealed to me. Oh, yeah. I do like mimosa’s if they are done right. I think I’ve been sucked in by the fact that I have been pregnant for almost 2 years in a row and nursing the last 15 months. That’s two hot -assed summers without the benefit of a nice cool beer or anything in the alcohol family. I have had the occasional half a beer that I’ve shared with my husband and we did toast in the new year, but it’s really not the same. This is the classic case of wanting something more because it’s not really available to me. Here are a couple of examples of what I’ve pinned : Blueberry Vodka Lemonade, Summer Sips (with a yummy looking Peach Summer Sangria), and a Sarasota (viewable on Pinterest). Yummmmmm
