Current News on little gummy bear.

Our gummy bear.

Last week, I went to the doctor to see how our little ” gummy bear” was doing. The baby is healthy and is growing tremendously. It’s amazing how much development can take place in just a week. I could see it’s little heart go thumpity thump, thump. I’m officially 9 weeks and 3 days today. I’ve still had my battle with nausea but we’re working through it. Today, has been the first day in weeks that I’ve been able to keep down food in all honesty. So, it’s been a great day. I’ve lost 6 pounds so far while being pregnant. Looking on the bright side this means I will be the cute prego lady not the swollen, waddling penguin pregnant lady. Further updates to come!


Today was crawl up on the couch and hope there is a trashcan nearby kinda day….

Today, I wasn’t feeling so good. This pregnancy has been different than my first one. During the first time around I was sick 24/7 even up until the 9mo’s period. This pregnancy, the nausea comes and goes. One week, I may feel great the next I feel like absolute poo. I’ve had alot of heartburn as well. I just pray tomorrow lends me a good day. I see the doctor in 2 more days. I may even have an ultrasound. I will update more later……

My pregnancy thus far…..

I’ve finally gained my appetite after weeks of nausea and hugging my toilet. Hence, the reason I haven’t wrote on here in awhile. I was either lying on my couch trying not to move with trash can nearby or hugging the toilet in an attempt it would yield mercy. I love to cook, but I had to take a break during the nausea period because even the smell of food would send my stomach into a chaos of food/hormonal catastrophe. Now, that I’m past that stage for the most part. It seems I can enjoy the pregnancy in a deeper way. Here’s a recent pic. I will be 8 weeks tomorrow.

Book Review: ” A Cook’s Tour.” By Anthony Bourdain

I have been reading ” A Cook’s Tour” By Anthony Bourdain. The book is vivid in painting the reader a picture of the sounds, smells,flavor, taste, styles and traditions of the countries he visited during his tour around the world. The reader almost feels as if they are on the same journey with the author. Experiencing every emotion from delighted, sad, scared, angry, curious and overall inspired. There is a raw humor in this book that is undoubtedly keen and delightful.
If by some random chance I was to meet Anthony Bourdain..I might just pee my pants. I like the unpolished aspect of it all. Next time your looking for an adventure, try this.

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

My beautiful sisters and I grabbed a bite to eat at On the Border. The food wasn’t all that great but the company was excellent. Between all three of us there was plenty of fun to share around the table. I would say the best thing as far as food goes was the salsa. Everything else tasted like it had been pulled out of the freezer and cooked until a sufficient timing..then served. I think I have become a food snob since culinary school. Heck, atleast we got a discounted price right? ( Cinco De Mayo) We then marched our booties off to see ” The Pirates! Band of Misfits.” Arrrr! Hilarious and very cute movie.

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I will drink to that.

My beautiful best friends

Taking jello shots.

Chelsea and I being goofballs.

Hope you had a wonderful Cinco De Mayo!

Let’s just be honest here.

I will never understand why human society thinks it’s a better idea to roam around with idea’s of someone or something without ever having the courage to directly face the problem at hand. It baffles me but I guess somethings in life are meant to be a mystery eh? Why do we choose to make things so complicated? As if we need any more complexity in our lives’. This is my muse for the day…I hope you find it to be raw and honest because that’s what I meant it to be.

" Why"?

Ever been stuck in slow mode?

This particular week has been my week to “shine” in this area. Example: I was talking to Matthew on the phone while driving on the way home from work..during this process I began to wonder, ” I lost my phone.” while of course talking on it. All I can do is keep a good sense of humor and laugh about it.

This picture best describes how I've felt this week.
