Ice Cream Sandwich Delight

We were crusin' Target last night when I spotted these delicious delights and insisted we buy them!

Tonight after dinner I thought to "treat" Eli and remember we had them...apparently I didn't really want them I just thought I did. Eli hasn't ever had an ice cream sandwich so I thought I would try...

I think the cold brought a little shock...

but he definitely started to warm up to it
and loves it!

okay REALLY loves it!

and we of course had to share with Madie (notice her tongue)

That's my sweet boy who will be a big brother before we know it. He is so sweet and kisses my belly and says "baby"! Here I am at 14 weeks.

I am so thankful to have my energy back. Our condo was REALLY lacking while I was resting resting resting, but I feel fully charged now! We go to the doctor on Thursday and then it will be 4 weeks till we find out what baby # 2 is!!! =)

Can you believe it?

because I can't! We are now officially a minivan family...yea you read that right. Somehow we were blessed to get rid of our old vehicle and get one with more room. We looked and looked and finally decided that the best move for our family is to get a minivan.

And I have to is really growing on me =) Daniel has been very persistent about getting one and not an SUV. I am stubborn and tried to tell him we "need" an SUV, BUT after going and looking at both, I was persuaded toward this gem

excuse the picture quality...this was taken from my phone.

And wanna know one of my favorite, FAVORITE things about this ride? Automatic sliding doors. All we have to do is push a button and the doors open to put big guy in =)

Thank you Lord for allowing us this opportunity of a larger vehicle for our ever expanding family.

13 weeks & sick :(

That's right, we're 13 weeks today and I have a nasty cold. Eli has had a stuffy nose and has been a little more fussy lately. I thought for sure it was the 8...yes 8 teeth he has coming in all at once (4 on bottom & 4 on top), but really I think he just hasn't felt good. I got ahold of his cold and well all I want to do is sleep on the couch. BUT we all know with a hubby in seminary and a 17 month old running around, that's not always the case. These are the moments I long to be around family. To just call my parents or in-laws up and say "can you please take E man??"--oh that would be nice. But so is life... =)

Anyways, 13 weeks!! For some reason Daniel and I are so so eager to know what we are having. We both have a hunch and want to find out if our feelings are correct. I know it will be here before we know it!

So here are pics of 13 weeks with Eli and 13 weeks with baby # 2!

Get this...we had a luncheon for work the other day, and I had two, yes count them..1...2 men ask me if I was expecting! I was TOTALLY shocked. I didn't get asked by anyone till I think 18 or 19 weeks with Eli. And I NEVER ask unless they are pretty much in their 3 trimester and HUGE! It just really caught me off guard.

Not much too exciting going on this weekend. The hubs is busy with school. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

12 weeks...

12 weeks...whoo hoo! The picture on the left is just shy of 12 weeks with Eli when Daniel took me out to a nice restaurant for Valentines Day. The picture on the right was today (didn't go anywhere) but was just curious how much different I look in the dress! This is actually the dress I wore at our rehearsal =)

I am hopeful that my energy will be back soon. We have 7 weeks till we find out pink or blue!!

Oh y'all I typically don't share many recipes (don't know why...I should) but it is no secret I LOVE to bake! I will admit there is something baking once a week in our kitchen. Running is my way of justifying all these baked goods and keeping the weight off =) and letting my adorable and willing husband eat most of them. I find joy while i'm in the kitchen either making cookies, cakes, breads etc! So anyway...I have been on the search for an out of this world homemade chocolate chip cookie. Honestly I haven't found one. Well last night I tried my hand at one I found from a google search and well...y'all...RUN RUN to the kitchen, grab all your baking supplies and MAKE THESE COOKIES! WOW...Daniel made the comment even...they are the best homemade cookies I have had!


It is the BEST chocolate chip cookie ever!! (and super easy to make!)
