It has been a week full of fun foods. It seems that my days revolve around what I am going to eat. I think what kicked it off was my craving for red velvet cupcakes. My good friend Sarah and I have gotten cupcakes the past two times we have had lunch, and I thought I would give my own red velvet cupcake recipe a try. Let’s just say they turned out to be AWESOME!! Thanks to Aunt Kari, Greg’s sister, who helped in making them turn out amazing. This last week I have had one crazy sweet tooth. I haven’t had one my whole pregnancy. I would have rather had a whole pizza before I wanted any ice cream or cake. I guess Lilly is making sure I make up for lost sweets before she can’t have cake until her first birthday.
My next food conquest was brought on by loving the cooler weather. I had to make Aunt Tina’s yummy tortilla soup recipe. It was super tasty and made me feel like it was fall. Greg and I even got up one morning and had some yummy hot chocolate before he had to go to work. I sure love my hubby. I can’t wait to have hot chocolate on the porch while holding our beautiful little girl Lilly.
On Tuesday I had lunch with Sarah and Addy at the Rise Bakery. It was actually quite good. I had a Cajun Hamburger with Cajun Fries. I might as well eat the spicy food, because that is on the list of things that can help you go into labor. I am willing to try anything. Although the food was good the company was better. I can’t wait to have all four of us girls have a lunch date. Addy needs to meet her new best friend Lilly.
Well, I had my 38 week appointment this week and I am not dilated AT ALL, but the doctor says Lilly has her head really low. I was excited to hear that, but it probably means nothing. I am not counting on an early arrival for Lilly, but you never know. Hopefully in my next blog entry I will have more exciting news to report on Lilly’s expected arrival.
