when it comes to eating I am definitely eating more. I have blogged about this many times. But the one thing that I just don’t understand is how babies get hiccups. Little man got the hiccups like three times today. All after I got done eating sweets. I probably shouldn’t be eating sweets but gosh I know it will be something I won’t eat once I am not pregnant so I decided to take advantage of it now. And brownies seem to be my thing. OH! And for all you Gluten Free people out there (which I am) Betty Crocker has now decided to jump on the Gluten free bandwagon and her stuff is actually really good. I like my brownies fudgie so I don’t bake them as long as she tells me too, AND she says to use a half stick of butter and I use coconut oil instead because that is actually VERY good for you. SO anyway I was licking the spoon after I popped them in the oven and sure enough baby gets hiccups. THEN when I get home from dinner (we ate at On the Border – the only thing there that I really LOVE is their salsa…it’s bomb!!!) Anyway when I got home B and I decided to watch the newest episode of Curb your Enthusiasm and I wanted a brownie . No sooner had I gotten a few bites down and little dude gets the hiccups. What is he CHUGGING his amniotic fluid in there? Which kind of wigs me out if I think about it. Sorry if it does to you too.

Anyway I need to do some research on babies in the womb getting the hiccups. And why. But until then I am just gonna have to deal huh? Another thing I am dealing with is waistbands. My friend Sam, who just had her baby 9 weeks ago, said that by the end of her pregnancy she was mostly seen around the house without pants. That even yoga pants put too much pressure on her waist and beyond. I can’t agree more. I wore preggo jeans today and gosh even though they have that magic waistband that goes up an over baby bump the part that connects that fabric TO the jeans is like a tight belt around the baby…   So honestly I have no idea what to wear to work tomorrow. Maybe I can head to Good Will after work and pick up some Moo-moos. That was Gavin’s suggestion. PUH! I will buy one for me and one for HIM!

Ok well I gotta get some sleep. MUCH LOVE



I have been lazy about my blog, haven’t I!
So I hosting an event at Suede Blue in Roseville tomorrow for Dr. Rasi – my dentist where I get my Invisaline – so fun and such good food.
Anyway so today I went out to get something to wear to the event. I am not mentioning WHERE – but I could not have been MORE annoyed with the sales girl there. I usually get a long really well with sales people and this woman wasn’t rude, she was just USELESS! I am a hands on person when it comes to shopping. I like the sales person to bring me clothing they think would be good or help me with sizes…the worse thing is having to puddleduck around the store in a clothes that don’t fit while you track down a larger/smaller size shirt. ya know?! Well this chick didn’t DO anything. She just sat at her register looking at her emails. Finally I just got dressed and left…why waste my time with that place? But I tell my sister what I am doing and she tells me she’s complete opposite. She likes sales people to leave her alone. She doesn’t want to talk to anyone and she doesn’t want their opinion of what she looks like in the clothes. I just can’t understand why you WOULDN’T??!?! But it made me think…are you a vocal hands on shopper who loves the help or someone who just wants to be left alone?
I did finally find a GREAT shirt that I can wear now and after baby is born I will say this- I got that at S.W.A.K. at the Fountains in Roseville. (Very helpful in there- let me tell you!)
Afterward I went to Whole Foods to get something to eat and drink. If you haven’t tried the coconut water you need too. It’s so refreshing and has so many electrolytes it’s so good for you and I am sure your baby will love it! I got the Mango flavored and the Passion fruit. YUM!
Hope you are doing really good and much love to all the mamas- I know there are a few of you giving birth in August so GOOD LUCK Ladies!


Thank God it’s Friday! Being pregnant has it’s ups and downs but Friday is definitly an UP! Can I get an amen from the back row sistas! ok so after I left work today I met my good friend Megan at Cheesecake Factory in Roseville…we ate outside with her DARLING 6 month old daughter Alana (sooo cute!). We get done eating and I decide since we both had salads that we DEFINITLY need some cheesecake…so I order Adams peanutbutter fudge ripple something something…Megan says she’ll have one bite and I go “oh come on it’s your birthday!”
well about 5 minutes later this stream of servers come over to our table singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Megan!…it really caught us off guard and Megs was bright red…although they came with a hot fudge sundae so that was a plus! We also ate the cheesecake. WHOOPS! oh well.
So many good stores opening at the Mall and it was good to get up and walk after our dessert! I bought some Coconut Tea (decaf!) from Teavana and headed home to relax.
The rest of the weekend will be spent either grilling, enjoying the AC and sleeping in. Then Sunday is FATHERS DAY! I got Brandon a “dad-to-be” fathers day card, and a special gift from the baby (Baby boy told me to get it for his dad I couldn’t say no;p) I will update that on Sunday after I give it to him.
Doing anything for the baby daddy in your life? Or for your own dad? I sent mine straight up cash…I figure he’s not gonna use a gift card (he will forget about it and leave it in his wallet to expire) and he has everything he needs so I told him to treat himself to a happy hour or something…I am sure he’ll figure it out. How much did I give him? Only 27 dollars…a dollar for every year he’s been my dad…lol.
ok gotta go relax – you do the same!


So I came home from work and I had a package on my porch – it was from my sister, and it was like 10 seedlings of all sorts of vegetables. Might sound like a strange gift but they were all organic and from a local farmer so all I had to do was plant them and then reap the harvest. Tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, and lots of herbs- it was fantastic and so great of my sis to give me such a great birthday present. (oh yeah we have the same birthday – even thought we are born 4 years apart)
So then I go to Dr. Ronald Rasi’s office. I actually love going there. I have said that before but it’s so true. Everyone there is so sweet and funny and just great. So I got some new trays for my Invisaligne and get this, I am already on tray 8- I feel like my teeth are more loose since I got pregs and these “braces” are keeping them in check! click here for all the info on Dr. Ronald Rasi!
Anyway so I leave there and go to OSH to get some plant stuff like compost and soil and all sorts of fun things like that. I take it home and honestly I felt like I had no idea what to do. So I googled how to plant these items and wa-la they look great! Lets just hope they grow grow grow!
Later I made some ya ya yum steak on the grill and had a salad. Did you know pregnant girls need to have 60 grams of protein a day! Yikes! That sounds like a lot cus it is! Honestly though, space is getting more and more cramped in there (belly) and I feel like I can’t eat as much as I should.
Oh and one last thing this will make me look like a hippie for sure but these rattles are so cool
wooden rattle
So they aren’t the normal plastic colorful rattles you see at stores but at least you know it can’t hurt your kid – it’s made of a tree! lol.
what items do you love? what websites have great babies stuff. Email me or comment!


So I went to see Britney Spears Saturday night at Arco. I had an amazing time. My husband Brandon went with me (big surprise he OFFERED!) anyway despite what Gavin and Tall Skinny Matt said I thought it was fun and she puts on a great show. At times I thought she was phoning in the dancing but over all I got to hear all my favs (except Lucky) Even Brandon was wowed by some of the inbetween Circus acts she had. Now that was outrageous!
Before the Britney show on Saturday Brandon and I set out to get my cars headlights fixed and walked (or drove away rather) in a new car. LOL. I love a new set of wheels- I think I am a sales persons dream! I went over to the Volks Wagon dealership in the Roseville Auto mall – Walt was our sales guy and he really got us a great deal – if you are in the market check em out!
Easter was a lot of fun this year Brandon and I went to church Sunday morning and then went over to some friends of ours house for some REALLY good eats. YUM. We pretty much hung out there all day and came home at night. It was a fun weekend and I can’t complain.
Hope yours was GREAT and aren’t you so stoked that Spring is FINALLY here!
much love
