Speed Racer....

Connor didn't get too excited when we told him the new... lol! But he did make it very clear that he wants a brother, not a sister and he wants to name his new little brother "Speed Racer" lol!!!

NOTE: Watch his eyes RIGHT after I say "your going to have a little brother or sister" he looks at my belly for a second to see if he can see anything lol!

Well its official... I got knocked up!

We started trying for a lil one in June and by July we have a baby on board! We must be either REALLY lucky, or REALLY fertile! lol We haven't made the official announcement so if you are reading this please keep the facebook posts until after we make the announcement. I figured if you are reading this then you do actually care about our lives! lol Our first appt is tomorrow, I am guessing that they will just do blood work and not much more as early as it is! The unofficial due date is April 11, 2010.

I have been feeling okay... besides the hot flashes, CRAMPING, constant nausea, light-headedness and total *B* mode I have been in! lol

I am going to try and take a weekly picture... we will see how that goes! ha

Here is the very first baby belly (a.k.a. bloated belly!!!) picture!

(Don't judge... its bloating! lol)

"I have always felt very fortunate about my eyes... they may be ugly, dull, and brown; but I have always had 20/10 or at least 20/15 vision... lately I have been catching myself squinting a lot more to read things, my eyes have really been hurting and achy and at night I seem to have a slight blur to bright lights that I haven't ever had before! I have been thinking about going to see the eye doctor for a while now, and after the massive headache I got today I called and made an appt!"

So I wrote that like 3 weeks ago and never posted it because I didn't want to be "that girl" if everything was fine and it was all just in my head... well my eye appt was today and since you are reading this that means that I really do need glasses! I am really excited to get my glasses, my eyes have been bothering so much lately! I never thought picking out glasses would be such a hard decision, but it took me forever! Thanks to the great staff, Sarah, and a quick trip up there from Becky I think I picked out a great pair!

Casey’s Inspired

For those of you that have never had a "taco pizza" from Casey's I am truly apologetic! Their pizza is pretty much a religion to some (including my brother-in-law) and I was in desperate need of a "fix" last night! Since I didn't feel like making the 15 mile road trip last night to the closest pizza producing pump station, I make my very own "taco pizza".

I bought a pre-made pizza dough from the refrigerated section of our local Wal-Mart.

Browned 1lb of hamburger along with 1/2 a large onion (which I chopped in my new favorite kitchen appliance, my food processor!) then added a packet of taco seasoning to the mix.

Topped the pizza dough with the hamburger mixture and added a little cheese.

The next step is my favorite! We spend our whole life trying not to crumble up the potato chips in those flimsy foiled bag, but for once I got to stick it to the man... and crush away! (Since it was just T and I eating I grabbed a handful and did this step in a Ziploc baggie)
After about 10 minutes in the oven I just topped the hamburger meat with a little lettuce, crushed up Doritos, and taco sauce.

It may not be Casey's, but it will get ya by in a pinch!

The Muffin (Wo)man

I don't know why, but things just taste so much better when they are pretty to look at! lol One of my favorite (and most used) wedding gift is a cake/cheese stand with glass dome. The stand is rarely empty, T and C love their muffins so have become quite the Muffin Maker! lol I try and mix it up a little and alternate between the pans I use.

I prefer the muffin top tin.

While C loves the mini muffins.

And T is "Typical T" and enjoys your traditional muffin!

I am always looking for new recipes so please feel free to send some my way!
