my new (old) love... and an explanation

I know I have been MIA for awhile... and I can finally explain.  I have made three fully homemade meals in the last 7 weeks.  Isn't that pathetic?  Thank you, Lord, for the creative genius behind Trader Joe's and their frozen food section.  Otherwise, I would be ridden with guilt.

I am 11 weeks pregnant.  And the thought of cooking has been, well... bleh. Thankfully, things are looking up.  The heartburn has yet to die down, but the nausea is dwindling.  Again, thanks Lord.

So, enter my new (old) love.  I am not a regular partaker of protein bars. But in my baby's interest, I picked up a few this week so that I am eating something besides fruit and noodles.  And cereal.  Tonight I opened up a Carmel Nut Brownie Luna bar.  Oh heaven.  Crispy, chocolatey goodness.  With protein, folic acid, the whole nine yards.  Everything good for the little one.  And man, they are tasty.

Congratulations!
yeah for luna bars! I also had awful morning sickness and they were one of the things that made me feel like I was at least giving my poor baby some nutrients!
good luck and come back and let us know how you are doing whenever you can!! : )
