X country2 told me about this recipe from the food network. I have to say it was pretty delightful. I wish it had the nutrition facts but it is chock full of protein. Thanks XC!

I love this picture & my sis. Who looks this happy running a marathon and then never wants to do another??? Working on that !


  1. 2008 was good! And to think 2009 is going to be just as good if not better... with that little one on the way!

  2. I love that you have cheese as one of your favorite foods! How did I leave that one off my list? I could live off of it.

    Your sister is too cute. You guys should run a marathon together!

    I can't wait for baby to arrive! I'm so excited for you!

  3. recipe looks good...but it violates the no peanut butter rule. unless i change the rule to be just no pb on a spoon straight from the jar. (but then i could just use a knife, so no good.) love the pic of your sister! she SO will want to do another marathon!

    this is just not fair.

  5. You are looking good!

    I loved your list. Sounds like you had a wonderful 2008 only to have a better 2009.

  6. Great list!

    Alton Brown made granola bars that same episode, and I make them at home and have one every morning. Extra yummy.

  7. Good list. Your belly button can wait a few more weeks. Mine popped out when I was about five or five and a half months along. I liked it though.

  8. I don't seem to remember telling you about that recipe! hmmm - Am i losing my mind??

    You still look great in the pictures!

  9. I think you look better than most non pregnant people!!

    I just saw you have the ocean drive 10 miler listed...are you definitely running that?

  10. ewwww GU is one of your favorite foods!! I just can't handle those. What a cute baby belly, good luck with talking to your belly button.

  11. Good thing we changed our plans for this morning - I went to see a new PT yesterday and he told me that a 10 miler this morning was probably not a great idea.

    Back to the drawing board!

    How did your run go?

  12. Great lists!! My belly button never officially went out...but it did get WIDER and WIDER.....

  13. Lookin good mama to be! I love cheese too! I'll have to do my 'tag' when i get a minute!

  14. ohhh belly is looking awesome :)

  15. Great stuff, Slice. That pic of your sister (including her comment) is an all time classic. You look fantastico.

  16. Man, your tummy is definitely growing. 5 more weeks?? That's it???

  17. You actually look pregnant!!! :-)

    Wow, 5 more weeks to go? Wow!!! I hope your belly button hangs in there. Literally!

  18. Your belly is just so cute and round! And I can't believe your belly button hasn't popped yet- crossing my fingers for you that it stays put!.

    The recipe looks delish. the link isn't working for me at work, so I'll have to check at home.

    That pic of your sister is so great. She looks so ecstatic- I disbelieve that she doesn't want to do another. How is that possible? = )
