Life Lately…

…has been all about baby.

Baby BOY, that is.  We found out on Christmas Eve and are so excited.  Neither of us really cared what the sex was; we just want a happy, healthy baby.  But we’ve both been super excited about having a little man in the family.

The holidays were nice this year.  Relaxing, actually.  It was our first Christmas in our house, so it was very fun to decorate.  Molly girl enjoyed even tolerated me playing dress up with her.

While I am feeling really good after the exhaustion of the 1st trimester has faded, I have totally lost my kitchen juju.  I’m not sure if it has to do with my constant cravings for carbs, boxed mac and cheese (gross, I know) and Mexican food or that it’s so darn cold and gloomy that all I want to do is snuggle on my couch when I’m home.  Either way, I am often not in my kitchen, and when I am there aren’t many blog-worthy dishes coming out of it.

I’m trying to get the juju back, or at least get in there to do some baking.  I’m not promising that I’ll be around numerous days consistently each week, but the month-long blog slump is officially over!
