Halfway

Well, at least we're past the halfway point of the longest short month of the year!!! Does anyone else feel like this time every year, it seems that March will NEVER come?! Well, I'm starting to get optimistic that spring is just around the corner. But I confess I'm cautious about my anticipation of it. Kind of like my anticipation for the new Taco Bueno by my house that was supposed to open a year ago and once again this week, the opening date has been pushed back a couple more weeks. Ugh. I wish I could say I am overemphasizing my disappointment and despair, but I'm quite frustrated by it. Granted, food has been a very important part of my life lately. A little too important. I finally ventured out from my regular order at Schlotzsky's this week and ordered a chicken and guacamole wrap that was so amazing I actually could not stop thinking about it for that entire afternoon. Everyone I saw, I told them about the wrap. I couldn't help myself. I did draw the line on blogging about it that day, which was pointless since I am writing about it now. I'll spare you the details that I didn't spare those poor souls on Tuesday who had to hear about the wrap over and over. But anyway, I've been a little obsessed with the things I want to eat lately. I don't remember being this way as much when I was pregnant with Jonah...I think I was too sick to like food as much. Well, I like food now. A lot. And there's something wrong with the world when a girl can't just have a party burrito when she wants one. Ok, on to other things...

(Well, not yet, because there still is one more food-related picture below.)

Happy Belated Valentines Day, everyone!

If those don't look yummy enough, this little guy sure does....


Look, Brady is awake!!!Now, back to sleep. I hear he's doing a whole lot of that.

Love this picture of Maggie as the proud big sis:

And here's Blake with all three of his kiddos - Nathan, Maggie, and Brady:

Oh, I love that family. Just a few more weeks until I can see them. I know it sounds quite dramatic, but it feels like one of the longest waits of my life!! If everything goes according to everyone's plans...ahem...this is the last niece or nephew that I will ever welcome into the world, and I'm a little sentimental about it because being an aunt has been such a sweet joy in my life. I was blessed with some good aunts, and I hope I can be for these punkins what mine have been for me. My relationships with the sweet sisters of my mom's have grown even more special and deep as I've been an adult, and I am so thankful for them. It's such a gift to even be able to try to be that kind of aunt to the kids God has given me to...um..."aunt." (My way with words just gets better and better the longer I'm pregnant!) Thanks for letting me show off this new little one I'm just dying to get to know. And hold and squeeze and pinch and kiss. Watch out, Brady, I've got big plans for us when I get to Kentucky next month! Get ready for lots of cuddling.

Thanks for humoring me with my Hey Dude post. I'm so glad to know that there are some of you out there who share in my weirdness. You don't know how that comforts me! =)

OK, I am realizing that you may have been asking me about where we will be eating next time because you are having a craving for something? So where are you dying to go? We can take into account the fact that you are pregnant when deciding who gets to choose the next location.
