Give in to the cravings

I've always had a problem with cravings. M used to have to go out and buy me chicken strips when we were still in school as he couldn't get any studying done over my whining. Sometimes, I just randomly decide that I cannot go on without a cheeseburger or a pizza or Mexican food. We always thought that my being pregnant would mean constant trips out to satisfy my cravings. We've been surprised so far. Granted, I spent four months hunkered over the porcelain god, but I still haven't really craved anything. Well, I hadn't really. Saturday, before we left for Knoxville, I had an insane desire for chocolate/vanilla swirled frozen yogurt. There is only one fro-yo place in Lexington, and it's on the other side of town, and I didn't want it nearly that bad. Over the last couple of days, I've continued to think about the chocolate/vanilla swirl. I keep trying to think of reasons that I need to be on that side of the world. I simply can't justify driving all the way over there for a small cup of yogurt. The whole situation has gotten me thinking about ice cream, though. It got so crazy that yesterday, after I left Lowe's from buying the paint for S's room, that I looked up, saw a McDonald's, and I had to have a McFlurry. I don't think I've ever had a McFlurry in my life, but at that moment, it was a life-or-death situation. I think that counts as my first major, out-of-control craving.

Then last night after dinner as M and I were putting the dishes into the dishwasher, I wanted cake. M didn't think cake sounded so bad, either, and I found myself looking into the cabinets to see what I could put together. Hallelujah...there was brownie mix. I actually made brownies at 9pm just because I wanted a bite of cake. That's two cravings in one day. I suppose it's all downhill from here??

Oh, Otis says hello...I know it's fuzzy, but what do you expect when he jumps up and licks the camera?

That is the cutest picture of Otis ever. I seem to be fond of the closeups.

Glad you like the 'Gate ensemble. All the Colgate babes will be wearing them. Little does baby J know that he's getting one, too! Though he'll get to wear his long before S will.

And I agree with M, those booties are the best!

Thanks for the bump pic! I love it! Glad you had fun at your class.
