A Pleasant Surprise...

I had my first official doctors visit last week for my pregnancy. I didn't know when our baby was due, so I was very excited for this appointment so I could finally find out when to expect our little one. I had tried to figure out when I would be due and I thought I was about 12 weeks, well it turns out that I am actually 2 weeks further along than I thought I was. Isn't that a pleasant surprise!! I am now into my second trimester and finally starting to get some of my energy back....I even cleaned out a closet last week. I am so excited to feel like myself again. I wish I could post the ultrasound pictures of our little one, but I still can't post pictures. I really have to figure that out before the baby comes.

Quick Easy Dinner Idea...

I have been in search of some quick easy dinner recipes lately, I think it is because I am pregnant and get more sick in the evening than I do in the morning, so dinner is always a struggle for me to make when I am feeling yucky. The other day Rice-A-Roni was on sale. This isn't something that I usually stock in my pantry, but I walked by it at the store and was reminded of a dish my mom use to make. I don't know what it is called, but it is super easy and delicious. Here is the recipe:

1 cup (approx.) Cooked chicken (leftover from grilling, shredded, etc.)
Can of green beans (or cooked frozen beans)
1 box Chicken flavored Rice-A-Roni

Cook up the Rice-A-Roni according to the package directions. When it is done cooking add the chicken and green beans. Heat through. Top with Cashews. Serve with a yummy salad on the side.

What are some of your favorite quick and easy recipes? I could use some new ideas. :)

Another New Year's Resolution...

As a few of you know (my faithful followers...all two of you!) it was one of my goals for the new year to gain 20 to 25 pounds. Well I have started working on my goal....

I am pregnant!!!

That is why I have been so absent lately in blogland. I feel like I could sleep all day. We are so excited to add another little baby to our family this fall.
