Baby Veg

So my brother,
called me yesterday wanting to know
if I will want my future child to be a pescetarian like I am 

first of all let me say I do not have 
nor do plan to have a child any time soon
(sorry mom - and you're welcome Abbie)

But I thought it was a great question
one that I still do not have an answer to

I would not want to push my beliefs on my child 
I would want them to decide this on their own. 
I mean- it took me 29 years to make this decision.

(me with a huge piece of steak)

I thought I would handle it like I do with Abbie - who still eats meat
I cook dinner for the both of us and if he wants to add meat than he can
but he has to make it.

I thought I could just let my future child pick whatever they wanted to eat 
when we were out and they were not at home - but I wasn't going to cook it for them.
(Abbie could if he wanted)

But then I realized that would probably mean my future child would be eating mostly factory farm meat. That was fried or covered in butter, etc.
And wouldn't it be better if he/she had organic meat that was prepared at home?


I still haven't made up my mind on this one.
Luckily I have time.

The Biggest Loser Finale is tonight!
I've watch TBL for the last 3 years now 
(I may have made that up)
But I have to say that this is a great season with a great cast- so inspiring.

My only problem with this show is that you can't watch it in real time- there is so much BS that you have to fast forward through.

I love all three girls in the running and would be happy to see any of them win.

In me news...

I FINALLY got my computer up and running.

So regular blog posts from here on out!

The big D

Sometimes you just need your girlfriends

Last weekend I went to visit my BFF's Jen and Crystal in Dallas
(It was an incredibly turbulent flight that has only increased my fear of flying)

The whole weekend we ate nothing but 

drank wine



It's amazing how you gaps in time/visits just disappear with your truly good friends.
It was like we were 23 again.

Son of the Sea

My Nephew is here and he is perfect.
I can't wait to meet him.

It's crazy how a baby can stir up so much emotion. 
Tears were falling with every conversation I had with a family member.

I guess we all know how this little baby is going to change the world of my brother and his wife
and what wonderful parents they will be.
lucky parents. 
lucky boy.

Battle of wits

My boyfriend informed me last night
that as a kid
his go to comeback line was:

"We are in a battle of wits... and you are defenseless!"

I'm pretty sure he was beat up as a kid.

I have been waiting all day 
for the arrival
of Dylan

My nephew.

It is my brother and his wife's first child
and they are going to make the most amazing parents.

I wanted a picture of him to post
but he's a little shy
and has yet to make his appearance into the world.

So I'll wait...
