. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

January 10, 2013

High Five for Friday

sweater: loft   jeans: kohls   boots: kohls

1.  I bought this sweater a week or so ago and feel as though baggy sweaters are a good choice for this beginning pregnancy, slightly awkward phase.

2.  After not cooking for quite a long time (like 6 weeks a long time) I finally made a real meal this week.


3.  I also made dessert: M &M Cookie bars.  These were SO good and really easy.  You don't even need a mixer!

4.  I'd like to blame this on some extreme pregnancy craving, but don't think I can.  I managed to eat an entire bag of cheetos in three days.  At first I would only eat a few if I finished writing a thank you note, but I can assure you I didn't have that many thank you notes to write.



5.  This one definitely takes the cake as the best blogging perk I've received so far, as I was sent a new HTC one x+ phone and I love it! It's the first time ever that Chris has been jealous of any technology I've had.


I'm sure you're so excited because that means clearer outfit pictures and I finally have a phone with a reverse camera so maybe that means I'll start taking hundreds of pictures of my face.

I'm SO happy it is Friday! Happy weekend to you!

When I was pregnant the only thing I craved was cheetos. That and once I craved a roast beef sandwich which I had never liked... and still don't. But that day, it was delicious. Crazy what your body does. You are looking great so far! Can't wait till you have a little bump going!

J and A said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

In your defense, those Cheetos are kind of addictive.

Those beginning months really are awkward, because you're a little too big for regular clothes, but a little too small for maternity clothes. You look great, though!!

Montana said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

you are entitled to eat an entire bag of cheetos, especially if they were the crunchy ones!! they are the best!
i need to learn to be a big time blogger to get all these phone perks! share your skills girl! haha! you look super cute and i cannot wait til you start having a little belly!!

Helene said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

thank you for posting the link for your m&M cookie bars! I must try those!

Small Town Catwalk said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yes! baggy sweaters are key at the beginning! I started needing pregnancy shirts around the halfway mark or just before - I prob could've fit in my regular stuff, but they were just more flattering once the belly really starts to grow :) enjoy this phase - i remember wanting my belly to "pop" so badly and then when it does, you kind of miss the days when it was small and you actually fit in your clothes lol

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those M&M cookie bars look amazing!!!

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I am just now getting back to cooking this week, too. It feels so good to be cooking again, and to have an appetite again! I'm sure Luke is excited too. I don't know how we survived the 6 weeks that I was basically too sick to look at food.

Karen Curtis said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Congrats on your pregnancy! Yay for the new phone! Have a great day!

i'm convinced i need Cheetos now.

and i'm wearing a baggy sweater today, you know, to hide the fact that i shouldn't want to eat Cheetos ever.

smk053078 said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

What???? A company sent you a phone? For free? Whaaaaaat? That is awesome! And girl, you should ahve seen how much I ate with when I was preggers. I swear Jack in the Box and me were BFFs!!
