Middle of the week post!

Okay so it's the middle of the week and I am just getting a post up. Oh, well that's the way life seems to go lately.I have had a pretty good week since Saturday. Saturday was a bum day as my plans were canceled because of another migraine.

Monday I just took it easy, and Tuesday was a full day. I had to take my husband to work in the morning, then the boys had they're story time at the library. Big Mister loves his library time. After the library we went to my oldest sister's to help pack for they're upcoming move. They are only moving about 15 minutes from where they currently live but they are excited. I was able to help get the kitchen cabinets emptied and all washed down.

I am not a soda drinker, one because I don't like the sweetners in diet sodas and I don't like injecting my body with the loads of sugar in regular soda. But, this baby has other ideas. I am so addicted to having a soda a day lately and the craving is really strong. I try to make a decent choice by getting diet rite. Hopefully this craving will go away soon.
I have been craving chinese lately as well, so I made a sweet and sour pork in the crockpot last night, then I did spagetti noodles and sauteed cabbage, carrotts, onions and mushrooms. I made a sweet and sour sauce with honey dijon and layered my dinner with noodles first, a drizzle of mustard sauce, a pile of veggi's and then the pork on top. AWESOME! It was so great the vegi's had a touch of teryaki sauce drizzled over them and the pork was pork loin chops, very lean. can I say Yummy?
So, I am 18 weeks and in three weeks I will have the 'big ultrasound'. Vote on my sidebar should I find out the sex of the baby or no?

My big anniversary weekend getaway is coming up in two days and I am so unbelievabley excited. 48 hours of no children and my hubby all to myself.

Well, That's all for now, have a great day!
Christina

When i was pregnant i had a craving for anything that was flavoured with orange!
I hope you and your husband have a really nice getaway together.
It's great to be with the kids, but it is just nice to have a bit of time to ourselves too!

Happy Anniversary when it arrives!

Love,

Oh, that sweet and sour pork sounds unbelieveably good to me right now! I am going to have to steal that idea...

Enjoy those sodas while the baby is demanding them! :)
