    Lynn, Hi! Glad you decided to join us over here. Oh man that sandwich sounds amazing! I had ramen for lunch...haha! I know, not very nutritious, huh? Oh well. I have beef stew cooking in the crock pot and it smells and looks sooo good. At least dinner will be healthy. Though, I'm craving tacos like crazy! Ugh!

    When is your first appointment? Congrats again!

    Alissa, Not really. Galveston is very....smelly. It used to be okay when I was younger but now that I know what a "real" beach is like I just can't get myself to go there...lol. South Padre is much better but I just don't know about going to a Texas beach during winter/spring time. It's going to be cold! Maybe a Caribbean cruise might be a better idea. Lol...sorry you were so cold! We went camping on new year's eve several years ago and I was freaking miserable! Ugh! There was a fire ban too so we couldn't even get a fire going to keep us warm. That was the last time we went camping...lol. Ooooh! Your FL trip sounds like so much fun! T is going to be so excited! Take lots of pics!

    Mmmm....I love peaches in salads! What did you end up eating for lunch?

    Haha about Galveston being stinky! I don't remember it being stinky, maybe we went at the right time of year or something. LOL Oh man, beef stew sounds amazing!!!!! I am making Mustard Something Chicken for dinner tonight. I was going to make it this weekend and got all of the groceries, but then our kitchen still wasnt done and I got a little lazy.

    For lunch I just ended up eating a Marie Callender's frozen meal that I had left in the freezer last week and some fruit salad. About as exciting as your ramen. LOL

    DH just sent me this pic. DH's aunt owns a horse, and DH took T horseback riding today. That orange helmet is his bike helmet. LOL

    Today was our first day back. We were going to start yesterday but took the girls on their first ever camping trip instead. School went well today. We started out with pancakes. Followed by the pledge to the Flag. Seatwork interchanged with working with each girl one at a time at my desk. Then we had rice crispy treats for snack. For art we did drawings with pinto beans. They turned out really cute. I have several pictures on FB. I confess to being to lazy to put them here. Feel free to friend request me if we are not already friends. Daniel-Bonita Eimers

    I made a new recipe that I found on Pinterest. Hot Eats and Cool Reads: Crescent Roll Calzones Recipe It was very yummy. I did use different fillings though. I used taco meat, corn, and cheese.

    And while we are on the topic of food, can I share 2 more that are just SO yummy. Sometimes I find recipes on there there are so good I can't stand it. Red Barn Candle Company: Christmas Buttercream Fudge {Never Fail} (imagine if you added crushed up oreo) and Food 2 / A friend of mine brought me this when I had surgery. Now it is my "go to" dish for taking to people who have had babies, surgery, etc. 4-6 raw chicken breasts, new potatoes, green beans (fresh or canned-really any green veggie would . Pinterest is one of those places that you have to try 10 terrible or so so recipes to find a really good one, so here are some good ones I have found recently.

I was on this board for a few months after my loss in 2/2010. I'm pregnant with #3 now...we weren't trying so this is a surprise. I'm very happy to be expecting again.

    Alissa, I reply'd over on your thread in April but wanted to say again...I'm so happy for you getting great news yesterday.

    Jina, I just finished up a Firehouse sub. The Engineer, I believe, with turkey, melted swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms, fully loaded. It was heavenly. Yum!
    Welcome my fellow TN friend! Welcome.

    Jina, beef stew sounds wonderful! I need to put some crock pot meals on the menu soon. I have some good ones and it's so easy...I love coming home to dinner already cooked.

    Alissa, great pic! I bet he had tons of fun

    Bonita, thanks for the welcome

    While we are talking about food....I really enjoyed my dinner tonight and it was pretty healthy too. I had grilled asparagus, crumb topped baked tomato, parmesan couscous and grilled fish (a white fish, can't remember what kind it was) So delish! Hope you all are having a good evening.

    Jina, I have my first appoinment scheduled for August 30th. Really hoping I get a dating U/S then. My doc has always been one to do u/s's early on so I think it's likely but he moved to a new practice at the beginning of the year and I don't know how they have things set up there.

    I was on this board for both of my losses.. I see there's not a whole lot going on, I hope that's fantastic news for everyone that was here with me.

    However, the reason I'm posting is because it's 926 in the morning and now I want beef stew, grilled asparagus, fish, salad and ramen noodles.

    Actually - I love asparagus. DH won't touch the stuff. So, like...three weeks ago, I roasted some with olive oil, salt and pepper...and ate the entire bunch. I was SO SICK the next day..omg it sucked so bad. It was sooooo good though!

    What a cute pic of T riding a horse!

    LOL Sorry we flung a craving on you.

    I love asparagus too...and it was super easy to make. I just did the same as you with olive oil, salt and pepper and threw it on the George Forman grill for like 4 or 5 minutes. I have leftovers for lunch today too; can't wait.

    Alissa, Yay! So glad you get to finally make mustard something chicken! lol I'm going to make it next week, I think. Oh I love the pic of T! How fun! I bet he had a blast...how cool that you guys can go horseback riding whenever you want! Hehe....oh and he does have long legs!

    Bonita, It sounds like a successful first day of school! Thanks for sharing those recipes. I think I'm going to have to try them out...well, except for the fudge. I just have not been into sweets lately. Using taco filling for the calzones sounds like a great idea. Oh man....I still want some tacos...lol.

    Lynn, I've never been a big crock pot user but lately it's been a lifesaver. I got so tired to eating out and most days I just don't have the energy to cook so I've been doing a lot of crock pot cooking. Yum! Your dinner sounds really good! Haha....I love asparagus but am I the only one who gets smelly pee after eating them?!

    I can't wait to hear about your appointment. I hope you do get an early/dating u/s. I'm sure if you ask for one he'll be happy to oblige. I'll be keeping everything crossed for a fantastic appointment!

    babywings, haha...sounds like the cravings have started for you! I normally don't watch broadcast/cable TV but I have been the past week or so because of the Olympics and man, the food commercials really get me. I start wanting everything I see advertisements for!

    AFM, Oh man, the beef stew was sooo good. It was seriously the best beef stew I've ever had. I served it with some fresh crusty bread and it was just to die for! Here is the recipe I used if you're interested.

    Oh man...I'm so tired today. I thought we're supposed to get some energy back as we approached the second trimester. I guess being slightly anemic isn't helping....blah....lol.
