30 Weeks Down…

30 Weeks
Me @ 30 weeks w/twins! Fun times w/my daughters’ and sister!

This weekend I got to hang out with the fam for some “family fun time” at a cookout that was hosted by my Pops barbershop. The weather was PERFECT in my area despite all of the crazy hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, and wild fires happening every where else in the world!

Chicken & Dumplings

Pregnancy cravings have taken over my life!

Or should I say, I’ve happily allowed my pregnancy cravings to take over my life…LOL. The latest and greatest craving that I had was for some homemade chicken and dumplings. I can’t even remember the last time that I had some but I do remember that my aunt made it, I was probably about 9 or 10 years old, and it was the best damn chicken and dumplings EVER!

It would’ve been easy enough to call up my aunt and get the recipe from her but I decided to do my due diligence and dig around on Pinterest to see what kind of recipes that I could find on there. Low and behold I came across a picture of some and instantly knew the recipe would be a hit.Β Even my husband loved it and he’s very particular about trying new things when it comes to his food and had NO clue as to what dumplings are…LOL.

Prego Life…

A few weeks ago Cece, being the awesome big sister that she is, brought home a box of Oreo ice cream bars as a treat for her and her little sisters. Now usually you mention Oreo anything to me and I’m ALL FOR IT, but when she’d asked me had I wanted one, I’d respectfully declined as I didn’t quite have a taste for anything sweet that night.

Or so I thought.

Fast forward to Mimi walking around the house with hers, taking small bites here and there and then finally deciding that something else had peaked her interest and she no longer wanted her ice cream.

Mimi: “Here mommy, hold this.”

Me: “If you don’t want it just give it to daddy, he’ll eat it.”

Mimi: “Here daddy…”

Hubs: “No thank you baby, I don’t want it.”

Mimi: *looks back at me* “Daddy no want it.”

Me: “Okay Pooks, give it here.”

Mimi: *proceeds to run off to her sisters’ room*

Hubs: “You’re gonna eat that?”

Me: “No, I don’t even want it. Have you tasted it?”

Hubs: “Nope. Not interested.”

Me: *takes a small bite* “It tastes quite interesting to say the least…” *takes another small bite*

Five minutes later…

Me: *looks over to my husband shamefully with empty Popsicle stick in hand* “Now see, this is exactly why you don’t ask me to hold any food!!”

Simultaneous laughter.

Hubs: “That ice cream didn’t stand a chance.”
