A Confession . . .

I have a confession to make...some of you (I should probably say "most of you") may have noticed that I have not been my normal blogging self lately.

Well, I am both glad and excited to say that I have a good excuse...

Yep, I'm pregnant with number two...and about 3 months along! 

Before I get into my please feel sorry for me bit, I would like to apologize to all of you, my readers for my blog slacking. I love all of the feedback I receive, and still read each comment made, but I haven't been very good at returning the favor. I also haven't been very good at posting my own projects and tutorials because well, I barely have the energy to keep my house clean (actually it's been a catastrophe) and adding projects to my to-do list has just not been realistic lately. 

My number one priority right now is just to be as good of a mom as I can for my little guy, while still trying to take care of myself for the one on the way. 

I have had everything from nausea, heartburn, headaches, as well as a few unmentionable symptoms (and often all at once). The symptoms seem to worsen as the day goes on and by 7:00pm (which is when I usually do my blogging stuff) all I want to do is curl in a ball and lay in bed. 

But the good news is the last 2 or 3 days I have been feeling better. The evenings are still a little difficult, but I am starting to feel like my old self again and am excited to start some new projects and recipes!

So look forward to some upcoming projects, and if anyone has any good super quick and easy dinner ideas I would LOVE to hear them! 


  1. Congratulations Andrea! I hope that you continue feeling good as your progress in your pregnancy! :)

  2. Congratulations! Please update us as you go along =)

  3. Congrats......Nothing happier than a little addition!!!

    Quick Dinner ideas.....
    Chicken pieces in a baking dish with cut up carrots, potatoes, onions, bell peppers and celery. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper- slow roast 250-300 degrees for about an hour.

    Also- Baked mac & cheese & broccoli casserole. Cook the mac & Broccoli together- drain water. Add a cup of shredded cheese, a tablespoon of butter, and 1/2 cup milk and an egg(slightly beaten). Stir. Put in casserole dish- sprinkle top with 1/2 cup bread crumbs and about 1/4 cup parm cheese combined. Bake about 20 minutes. You can add chopped Chicken or ham....or browned ground beef to it if you want meat.

    Hope that helps. ;-D

  4. CONGRATS!!!!! oh my goodness... I know how you feel! So happy for you!!!

  5. Congrats! That is such exciting news. Hope you keep feeling better :)

  6. Congrats!!! That is so exciting!!! You have a perfectly good excuse to not be blogging as often :)

  7. Oh my goodness! CONGRATULATIONS! So excited for you guys! Hooray for more babies!!! I wonder if it's a boy or girl, considering EVERYONE is having boys!

  8. Congrats! Your mom and I will be grandma's again close to the same time :o) Hope you're over that "yucky" stage and can enjoy being PG.

  9. Congratulations! I'm pleased to hear you are starting to feel better. I can totally empathise with you - I was sick for 9 months with both of my daughters.

  10. Congratulations! Hope you're feeling better. I know exactly how you must feel. My condition was pretty much what you're describing when I was pregnant many year ago. Isn't it a peculiar thing, being pregnant.
    Wishing you the very best!

  11. That is such exciting news! Congrats!!! I'm glad you're starting to feel better!

  12. Congrats Andrea! So excited for you guys!

  13. oh my goodness, I missed this post, congratulations! So excited for you! It feels like everyone I know is pregnant :) SOOO glad you are feeling better, I remember what that felt like! (sleeping in the car at work, etc, lol!)

    I'm a big fan of tacos & burritos for dinners - little ones love beans!

  14. This is exactly why I dropped off the face of the earth for awhile...I'm just now getting back into reading the blogs I follow and (hopefully) posting on my own. Congrats!!!!

  15. Congratulations on the great news and youll get a sympathy vote from me! I've never been pregnant but I can see how it would be not only wonderful but draining.
    I was brought to your website from pinterest! looking forward to following you! : )
