With the heat rising here in Upstate NY, my fingers & toes have a knubby presence quite similar, sadly, to sausages (of a smaller variety). The high temps, coupled with a 1928 home unequipped with central AC, has moved us to Hotel Hillrise. This would be the residence of my in-laws & no, it’s not really a hotel. Thank heavens for them. They deserve multiple shouts of praise for simply being some of the best humans to exist, but their generosity is a god-send right now. Because of their hospitality, I’m now caught up on all of my fave Bravo shows & officially addicted to Top Chef: DC. Muah, muah, muah to the in-laws!
Today will be the day I’ll fondly recall as the day I saw my reflection & did a double-take. Wish I’d known, so I could, perhaps, style my hair instead of sporting the Britney Spears head-top bun. The double-take was the result of seeing myself as I unlocked my car & noticing the bump. Holy bump! I officially look pregnant, not just bloated. The timing of this is so perfect as Ry & I will be traveling to Ohio this Friday. I am ecstatic to parade about with Tiny Teeter! Heck, I’ll even welcome a belly rub or two.
What I’ll be doing for you: posting a picture of the bump and creating a list of what has helped me to persevere during the pregnancy thus far. You’ll get this pre-excursion to Ohio.
What I’d like for you to do for me: Send me recipes for dips. Please go easy on the dairy ingredients.
