I’m Baaaaack!

Oh – heeeeey there, friends! Long time no chat. My fault, I know. I take full responsibility for our lack of correspondence. Many of you have sent me the sweetest e-mails over the last several weeks and your kind words lifted my spirits, encouraged my heart and made me eager to return to the blogging world. Thank you so much for reaching out. There are many of you that I’ve never had the privilege of meeting in person, but yet I still consider you all friends. You guys are my favorite part of blogging.

In the last several weeks, Dave & I have moved out of our house, experienced major job changes, celebrated birthdays, spent time with family, consumed copious amounts of spinach dip (preggo craving) and found out the gender of our baby! Pretty exciting stuff, right? No? You don’t find spinach dip exciting? Just me? Okay.

I’ll be talking about all this in more detail in the weeks to come (yes, even the spinach dip), but today I will do a quick recap of my birthday and get you up to speed on “Baby A.”

I turned 25 in April.

25 years


The fact that I turned a quarter of a century old isn’t necessarily blog worthy, but that crack pie from Momofuku’s pictured above totally is. I would say I ate that thing by myself in 3 days, but that would be false. I have a baby inside me that helped. Dave was sweet (and smart) enough to order that pie for me and then not ask me to share. That’s why I’m going to marry him.

birthday date


Oh yeah, we also got engaged. Did I mention that? How’s that for a literary surprise. No clue what our wedding plan is yet since I don’t like planning things. I just want to be his wife and take a super relaxing weekend getaway somewhere to celebrate. I would say I’m low maintenance, but that would be misleading since the honeymoon destination is picked and it isn’t cheap. But, can you really put a price on love and memories in the making? Didn’t think so.

In baby news, I’ve officially got a bump…

Baby bump - 4 months

And I don’t think that is from the crack pie. That picture is actually about a month old, so I am slightly bigger now. I am 5 months and officially half way through with this pregnancy. Only 20 more weeks and I get to hold my baby BOY in my arms…

Baby BOY

That’s right! We’re having a boy and I just posted a picture of his manhood on my blog. Don’t worry – that will be the first and last of those kinds of photos to appear on CnC. I just think that is the coolest picture. I can actually see it…”it” being his little thing. I’ve got the maturity of a 12 year old boy – clearly I’m not ready for this journey called parenting.

Anyways, I couldn’t be more thrilled about this precious boy growing inside me and I can honestly say I’ve never been so excited to meet a guy in my life! Hurry up, October!

Ob & Marley are doing great! Marley is sleeping now while he can…

Sleep now


And Ob is taking full advantage of still having my undivided attention…

Play now


This baby boy is already pretty darn lucky because he is going to have the best (fur) siblings known to man.

And on that note, I’m signing off for the night to go cuddle up with those 2 hams. I’ll be back with more posts this week, including some recipes. Goodnight, friends!

P.S. I’m looking forward to meeting some of you in person in just 4 days at Blend! I can’t wait for a weekend filled with blogging buddies and fitness!
