The Worlds Best Recipe...don't pass this one up!!!

I am cooking something WONDERFUL today, and it is so amazing that I really want to share the recipe with all of you...so here it is.

in-numerable cups of love and joy

LOTS and LOTS of smiles

0 cups of throwing up...so far so good

A dash of nausea, but not too much

Sift in 2 weeks of being SUPER tired, and a lot more to be added the next few months

one big smile that can't be wiped off my face

a pinch, well maybe a lot of pinches of exercising....I can keep my same work out plan until it gets uncomfortable, so my exercise schedule hasn't changed yet. So far, I can still do the usual, it is just a little more tiring.

Approx 12 servings of doctor visits, add more or less as desired

Lots and Lots of chips and salsa (seriously, I almost ate a whole bag yesterday..despite my goal of not eating too much salt to try to reduce water retention in the future..hahahaha..can't help what you crave)

A couple of new shirts here and a few new pairs of pants there. Add as needed.

Two positive pregnancy tests (just to make sure, and because it is fun to see TWO pink lines)

One negative pregnancy test (because I always get a neg. the same week as a positive, I will NEVER understand those things)


Mix well, and bake at approx. 98.9 degrees but not to exceed 101 degrees for about nine more months. (minus 6 weeks..I am about that far along)

If all goes normal, the wonderful result should be done and ready to come out of the oven around Nov. 15th.


We are soooooooooooo excited and filled with joy. We are ready and excited for baby #3 to enter our lives. It is such a precious feeling.


Side note....Due to a miscarriage not too long ago, we know we still aren't out of the woods and that the next few weeks will tell a lot. We were going to wait until then to let ya'll know we are expecting, but hey, dear friends can share the joys and the losses together. We will all just hope for the best in this case. So far, so good!!!!
