Sinful Crescent Rolls

This week, my best friend has been carbs. My stomach wasn’t tolerating anything else. (today I finally tried salad!! My first “real” meal since Thursday- WAHOOO! And then my stomach decided to growl at me for hours)

So as a result, I dug in the back of the frig, and found these bad boys and used my handy dandy Pinterest

Tomorrow I hope my stomach will allow REAL food. Although, I don’t think I will be eating eggs for weeks to come haha

Question for you:

Do you have a good crescent roll or sinful recipe?

Kissable frog

My AWESOME friend Amanda gave me my first Valentine’s Day gift.

He is aΒ  kissable frog

He also came with this message

This kiss me frog has a heart that’s true,

he will bring you love the whole year through.

Kiss him each and every day

and soon true love will come your way.

I plan on kissing him everyday πŸ™‚

IMG_0998I ❀ him

Question for you:

What did you get for Valentine’s Day?

What would be your perfect day?

My stomach rejects Valentine’s day

Yesterday started with a valentine’s card (with tattoo!) from Karen, and a kissable frog from Amanda.

I absolutely love this frog. I almost started crying. She is such a good friend to think about me (more on him later)

Then a few hours later, my stomach was not liking me very much. I actually had to leave work early. Which I absolutely HATE doing. And Audra gave me a nice pink bucket to bring home with me just in case. (luckily it went unused)

The rest of the day wasn’t pleasant. Last night I took my temperature with Andrew’s alligator thermometer

Fever 😦

Today, I was able to drink 7up, and a Mcdonalds shake (thanks to my mom!)

Then I started with panera soup in a bread bowl. Which I haven’t had in YEARS. I needed the carbs.

This week I am not doing my weekly weigh in, I’m sure I am down weight but not on purpose haha

On the good side, I have received this from not one, but TWO friends on Valentine’s day.

love

I saw this little boy on Ellen. And we are now soul mates haha

I also found out that someone is pregnant with twins!!! It is still early so I can’t spill who, but I am SOOOOO excited!!!!

Two years ago, valentine’s day was much better πŸ™‚

Question for you:

What did you do Valentine’s Day?

What is your comfort food when you are sick?

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

I am celebrating by being at work, and making some $$, but Andrew and I were able to find a cute valentine’s day card ideas on pinterest

Of course as soon as he saw this one, there was no going back

And they were super easy

Andrew was also able to do most of the activity himself, which I think is great for him and me

Question for you:

What are you doing for Valentine’s day?

Time for a banquet

We have survived mardi gras, found out Nicole is having a boy!, and now its time for the Blue and Gold banquet for boy scouts.

By this time in the day, I was completely exhausted. So after our second wardrobe change, it was time to head to Andrew’s school.

We started with church, followed by a few awards, and then over to the gym for dinner and of course, a photo shoot

Funny picture

After dinner (and a few more million awards, speeches) it was time for a presentation by the bird sanctuary

This was the first guy, that got a little scared by all the kids noise and went straight to the ceiling

I asked God for a busy weekend, and he definitely gave me a fun one!

Question for you:

Were you in boy scouts/ girl scouts?

Nicole’s having a baby!!!!

After a few hours a Mardi Gras, it was time to pick up Andrew, have a wardrobe change, andΒ  head to Illinois for Nicole’s gender reveal party.

I am SO excited for Nicole and her husband Joe. Nicole and I went to college together at SIUE, and now work together in the NICU. And now its time for a baby!!!

We knew we were at the right place!

For a gender reveal party, you come and guess what you think the couple will have. This is the “boy” group. I choose girl. Andrew choose boy

Nicole and Joe had their ultrasound on Friday, when the gender was placed into a card, given to the balloon people at party city……and finally opened at the party!

Getting ready……EEK SO EXCITED!!

IT’s A BOY!!!!!

I couldn’t be happier for the couple! Either way, Nicole and Joe are going to be AMAZING parents. and boys are the best πŸ˜‰

Andrew and I had to leave a little early to head to the banquet. And our Saturday continues…..

Question for you:

Have you been to a gender reveal party?

If you have kids, do you have boys or girls?
