Need some food porn: The Peached Tortilla

I have been dying to try this new trailer in town, the Peached Tortilla. I follow them on Twitter and pray they will one day come to my hood for lunch. Sure enough, today is the glorious day! Setting up shop at Hoover's on Airport Blvd., across from Kick Butt Coffee I stalk the menu and wait for my hunger to build.

With my choices already planned out, I ditch the majority of them when I see the new menu items - crab cake sliders and a deep fried wonton stuffed with a banana nutella mix topped with a cajeta cream sauce. Seriously? Oh yes, seriously.

I gave way to temptation, ordered the BBQ brisket taco, crab cake slider and fried wantons.

For the first time I am at a loss for words. Just take a look at these beauties and let your mouth salivate on its own.

Can you believe these gorgeous tidbits of goodness? I cannot wait to come back and try the fries and other selections. Speaking of amazing, these pictures were taken with my iPhone 4, in HDR mode. No need to even correct these in CS3, I'm completely impressed with the quality. Thanks Apple!

My Christmas present

Saturday morning found me up early so I laid in bed a bit and decided to give babeh some tunes to wake up on Christmas morning. Tuned my Pandora to Gotan Project and chilled for a few songs. Then to my amazement I felt a kick, and more than one. Could it be? Was it just gas? Nahh...that had to be a kick right?

I called in Matt and had him feel my belly. No kicks, but he was able to feel her move around inside. Regardless, I was absolutely thrilled!

Sunday morning I gave it one more try. Same station and 3 songs later more kicks. I text Matt to come to the bed since I couldn't even imagine getting up and losing this moment. Of course she is being a stinker and no kicks for Daddy. I move around a bit and I can feel something sticking out on my left side. Matt pushes it in and pokes around the area - sure enough she kicks back. I can just mentally hear her "Daddy, quit it!" I have to say, that moment made it even more real. I am carrying another human life inside me and she is saying hi.

Since yesterday, I have felt her now, pretty regularly. Even as I type this, I can feel little kicks in my lower belly and I couldn't be more happier.

Back into the swing of things!

This weekend I finally picked my hook back up and made myself crochet once again. What I needed to get back into the crafty mode is a project - and what could be more fun than doing something for my sister? Picking a favorite pattern for Ravelry I had been eyeing for about a year, I tried a few variation of patterns and frogged it more than once, but I quickly got the hang of it. Hello crochet, I missed you.

I chose the colors in Heather's nursery and hopefully will be able to finish this star blanket by the weekend. It's pretty simple once you get past the first 10 rounds, then just just add to it. Up next - one for me of course!

Where did this belly come from???

Holy cow! Week 17 has been officially labeled Bump watch week due to considerable growth in my tummy area. Interesting how the last few weeks I haven't been able to see a big difference, but this week - wow!

I started prenatal yoga 2 weeks ago. It's wonderful. Being a n00b to any kind of yoga, I had some reservations, but they were all laid to rest after my first class. We spend a ton of time focusing on breathing and stretching - all good things to have a strong grasp on for the upcoming delivery. Meeting new ladies in all stages of pregnancy has been interesting and I look forward to class on a daily basis. I NEVER look forward to any kind of working out. How times change....

This Monday is our big gender reveal. You can only imagine how excited we are for this day. Both of us have a girl-vibe going, but will be happy with whatever - even a puppy! I know, I know that could never happen...

So I'll be back with the good news next week. :D :D

Week 15

Why hello there babeh. This morning started off with a OB visit and a listen to Nugget's strong heartbeat. Next visit is the incredibly exciting sex scan. Sounds a tad bit naughty? I am counting down the days till then.

Heather just found out she is having a boy! How wonderful is that?! She is also battling a horrendous kidney stone and just had a stent put it. So prego ladies, drink your water and don't treat the Tums like candy.
