I want the biggest cheeseburger you got. Instead of salad, I want fries. Instead of fruit, I want chili fries.

I’m not sure if all of you know but our daughter Sofia is an IVF baby. Since my hubby’s been gone, well I’m human, I have days where I feel like I’m going to pull my hair out and want to run into the closet and let out a BIG SCREAM from frustration. What Mother doesn’t sometimes…

Today she pointed out the bubbles and yelled, “Bubbles, Momma! Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?” Of course! Great way to entertain her and get her to wear out by trying to pop each bubble! hahaha

And as I watched her face full of joy and heard her beautiful laughter, I realized remembered how blessed we are to have her here. I can’t even imagine how empty our lives would be if she had never been conceived. I watch her in amazement and pride because she’s the fruit of our lives. I love her. =)


Grocery list

Posted by chris on Apr 16th, 2008 add a comment

Since Annie and I like to inform each other of our latest grocery conquests, here’s a list of food I’ve bought this past week or so:

nature’s candy:

  • Red, seedless grapes
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries (organic)
  • Dried fruit bars

human’s candy:

  • Cappuccino almonds
  • Lemon honey almonds
  • Espresso gelato
  • Dark chocolate almond Laceys (review)
  • Espresso chocolate chip cookies

all that non-candy stuff:

  • White mushrooms
  • Portobello mushrooms
  • Sliced pepperoni
  • Sliced prosciutto
  • Uncooked shrimp
  • Wild citrus salmon
  • Pizza sauce
  • Fresh mozzarella (ovalini)
  • Fresh mozzarella (bocconcini)
  • Whole wheat pita bread (organic)
  • Herb bread (organic)

I don’t always have hours to slave over a homemade pizza (but I wish I did). So lately I’ve been using pita bread as the crust for some quick mini-pizzas. I have some leftover chicken, pesto and smoked mozzarella and a really great BBQ sauce (which I’ll review later) so I’m able to mix up the toppings quite a bit. One of my favorites: marinara sauce, fresh mozzarella, pepperoni and shrimp that’s been sautéed garlic, herbs and red wine.

As I post more of these lists, I suspect I’m gonna feel more and more guilty about the obscene amounts of chocolate I consume to power through my days. But that’s okay. It will simply spiral me into a deep depression that will lead to more of that sweet, sweet chocolate.
