you would think

Posted: October 25, 2010 at 7:00 pm

You would think after such a busy weekend, that my 2 year old daughter would sleep in longer this morning from all the exhaustion. Instead, she is awake and ready to play at 6 am.


You would think that I don’t care about my looks or how I present myself in public when I choose to leave the house looking like this.


You would be right. It was rainy, chilly, and all together gross outside when we headed to the grocery store this morning. I didn’t exactly feel like showering to get poured on. I’ll happily don the sweats look and shower later.

You would think that with Halloween bark, fudge, and special chocolate chip cookies inhabiting our house I would lack will power and sit around to eat it all day. You would be mistaken. The bark is going in “Boo” goody bags. The cookies are going in the freezer because we still have too many to eat while still fresh. The fudge…well, the fudge will stay out for one small piece after lunch at a time. 😀 I think the Maple Walnut is the best fudge I have ever tasted.


You would think that a pregnant woman can give you a run for your money in the eating department. You have never experienced pregnancy heartburn then, have you? I have very little appetite and honestly don’t eat much. Even this weekend, with all the food I appeared to indulge in, the portions were pretty miniscule and nothing compared to the room I would have had for them if not pregnant.  I constantly feel full. I had to force myself to eat lunch today in fact. All I wanted was this…


The first Honeycrisp apple I have ever tasted. Oh my deliciousness! Then I decided one, albeit large, apple could not suffice for a lunch. I choked down a pb sandwich to try to get as many calories in the smallest form possible. I foresee a lot of nutbutter in my future. I know I need the calories for helping baby B grow, but cannot fathom eating anything high volume right now.

You would think I am trying to grow a fur coat. I haven’t shaved my legs in over a week and honestly have no desire to do so. It hurts and can be difficult to bend to reach certain sections. I know I need to give in though when little M touches my leg and says “Roxy fur!! Mommy leg Roxy fur!” For the record, this is Roxy…


I can go to the store in sweats, but I have more pride than having myself compared to our dog, even if done by my two year old. I can understand those women who schedule a waxing session at the end of the pregnancy. I’m too cheap.

You would think I would have more to say…but I don’t. I need to go tutor and then come home for dinner and relaxing with my husband. I hope you all had a great Monday! See you tomorrow. 😀

  • Have you ever had a professional wax? I’ve done eyebrows of course and I did have to do the bikini thing for my competition. It actually wasn’t so bad!
  • What are some low volume, but calorically dense (and healthy) food options? They may be all I can stomach soon. I have no room in my belly and its only going to get MORE cramped!
  • Don’t forget to ASK ME ANYTHING for the November Q + A series!
  • Lastly, Atlanta Blogger Meet-Up THIS FRIDAY! If you're interested but haven't gotten details yet, please let me know!

    Freezing cookies–great idea! I need to utilize my freezer more often. Honey Crisp apples are the best apple ever. I promise. You could cut up apples and make baked apples … put nut butter on an apple and make it a meal. Cottage cheese and fruit. Toast and peanut butter. I don’t have many ideas. I’m sorry!

    What kind of dog is Roxy?

    • Tina says:

      She is a mutt. They aren’t sure what she is a mix of but Peter’s sister (who works with animals) believes she is a mix of lab and pit bull. She is the laziest and wussiest dog there is, so she doesn’t fit the stereotypes of those dogs at all though. LOL

    No, the more excitement there has been in a day, the earlier my Buddy gets up in the morning. It’s like it takes him a full day to allow himself to really relax.

    I’d go with some of those “natural food” energy bars for concentrated calories, like Lara Bars or the new Luna Protein rolls.
