Generally, I really like being short. I enjoy buying clothes on sale in the petite section. I like that I can always wear heels no matter the height of my escort. Pregnancy, however? I need a number of inches. This baby ain't got no room.
I think it's a girl, by the way.
2. Here comes the rest of the pity party.
I HAVE A COLD!
I was telling one of my best friends this yesterday and her reaction was the best. "Oh, Samma! A summer cold? While pregnant? That is the worst!!".
Yes! It is terrible. I feel very sorry for myself, ha! Don't you love when someone is so sympathetic and pities you when you need it?
3. Easy, Tasty and Healthy Supper!
1/3 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
2 Tablespoons kosher salt
2 Tablespoons paprika (smoked or regular)
2 Teaspoons cumin
1/2 cup parsley, plus more for garnish
1 3 lb chicken, cut into pieces (or I used 3 lbs of drumsticks)
2 cans chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
2 pints cherry or grape tomatoes
Mix the first 6 ingredients together well. Marinate the chicken, chickpeas, and tomatoes in the mixture, coating well for a few hours up to overnight.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Dump chicken and the rest into a roasting pan or casserole dish, and bake for 30-35 minutes depending on how crunchy you like your chickpeas.
Serve with crusty bread! Delish!
DH had her first soccer practice last night- she was thrilled! Morgan took her, as it was during Deeds' bedtime. I was bummed to miss it, then I heard the coach had the parents running drills with the kids. Ha! Miss Pitiful right here was fine with missing that!
5. The kids' new room, which they are sharing, is a shambles so far, but Dell Harper is in! Now just to transition Deeds to big boy bed and room sharing. Any suggestions? I'm rather concerned that they will just giggle into the night. We keep putting it off, but I'm starting to get the middle of the night nesting to-do list wake-ups. Thank goodness school is back in! Time to get cracking!
