I have something to tell you. And, surprisingly, I’ve kept it a secret for weeks and weeks and weeks. Which is not an easy thing for me to do! Some of you suspected something was up after this post. It was funny, because I actually did have your run-of-the-mill cold that week. BUT…I was also not feeling well for another big reason, and those of you with suspicions were right on! We’re expecting Baby #3 in September! I’m officially done with the first trimester and everything is looking good, so I can finally spill the beans! Yea!
Our friend Ellen Patton sent us one of her completely adorable photo cards when she heard the news.
My body doesn’t enjoy the first 18 weeks or so of pregnancy (that may be the understatement of the century). I am oh-so-sick even on medication, which I was expecting, but it’s still no fun…for anyone in our family. And keeping up a food blog has been more than challenging the last 10 weeks or so. In fact, remember the Norwegian Salmon post? Confession: I didn’t actually cook a darn thing on that plate! My friend Nikki, presented as my cooking partner in the post, was in fact the executive chef. I didn’t have to smell fish and just got to show up to take pictures of the final product. Nikki got to keep a whole salmon. Everyone was happy!
Despite feeling beyond terrible, I am also feeling beyond grateful and excited for this blessing in our life! And, yes, we’ll find out what this little person is…on April 18, to be exact. Stay tuned!
I should feel more normal again in about a month. Until then, I’ll just keep planning menus in the hopes that at least a few of the things I plan get made!
– Chicken Piccata
– Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Baby Broccoli (both veggies from our CSA bag)
– Corn Chowder
– Stuffed Peppers (we didn’t have these last week, big surprise, but they sound so good…hoping I can do it this week!)
– Eat out
– Spaghetti with meat sauce
Bring on the menus, folks! And have a wonderful week!
