Will and I took a nice long stroll through our local Babies R Us on Saturday and we both left with the overwhelming feeling and realization that our little peanut will need a lot, make that a ton, of stuff.
Now, don’t get me wrong I knew we needed the car seat, highchair, crib and other baby essentials…..but I had no idea about the different bathtubs, umbrella strollers, jogging strollers, bouncy seats, tummy time mats….Ahhhhh! I list goes on and on.
So…to start the baby buying process we decided to go with something simple and fun. We purchase baby bedding (Winnie the Pooh bedding to be specific). Here…take a look…
Now, Pooh Bear has always had special place in both our hearts.
For me, Pooh Bear was my nickname growing up from my Mom (much to my embarrassment in my teenage years). However, I embraced the name when I was younger even sending home letters from church camp signed Po Bear (ok…I was young and couldn’t spell..LOL!)
Will's attachment to Winnie the Pooh was more due to his love for the stories and characters. However, his baby nursery was also Pooh Bear back in the day. Awwww!
So…one thing down thousands to go!

#1. Chili. I would eat chili morning, noon and night if I could and for a while I think I was eating just about every day. And did I mention I was in complete and total heaven. LOL! The chili warmed my belly and just tasted so good….Mmmmm…Chili. I think I know what I’m having for dinner. Maybe this obsession started since I found out I was expecting in January, but maybe it’s just my love of chili. LOL! Either way….I’m totally 100% obsessed!
#2. Strawberry cake with Strawberry frosting. This obsession came during an office party when one of my amazing co-workers the treat. Now they slices of cake were cut very small….but I still have 4. LOL! And ever since that day I’ve been dreaming about Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Frosting. Yum! Yum!
#3. Oranges. This is very appropriate since the baby is also the size of an orange, but I love me some oranges. I could eat 10 a day if it didn’t cost so much (and the acid in them wasn’t so high). But nonetheless…throw an orange my way and you won’t get it back.
So….that’s a little glimpse into the world of a starving pregnant lady who typically has only food on the brain. Just sitting here my mouth is watering and I’m planning my grocery list and strawberry cake and frosting is defiantly going on the list!
I’m just glad my amazing husband helps me out and makes sure my meals are as balanced as possible or I may just let my brain and imagination come up with some of the craziest plates ever. Hope everyone has a great weekend with some great eats! I know I will! ;-)

On another front Pregnancy has been hitting me hard the last few days with morning, noon and night sickness, and the list of foods I never want to eat again is quickly grown. Yuck! But...I wouldn’t go through all this for anyone else. :-)
