It's the first day of November everyone!
That means I only have 2 months to go till Ella's here....maybe less, which is what I'm hoping for! :) I already feel like I've been pregnant forever...and I'd totally forgotten how frustrating it is to try and bend over and pick something up off the floor. It's a workout just going around the house to pick up things off the floor...not to mention trying to bend over and put on the girl's shoes(or mine for that matter)!
Ella seems to be doing well, although she's definitely getting crowded in there and stronger because she can sure make me jump when she starts pushing. I mean it actually hurts when she starts pushing really hard! I'm thinking it's probably a foot since it's always near the top of my belly and towards the right, but man, she must have some long toenails or something!
Abigail and Bethany keep asking when Ella's going to come, and of course, making plans for what they're going to do with her, so they're definitely excited. :)
Here they are this morning as we were having our 'morning talk'.
Well, I really need to go make my spinach smoothie, but instead I keep thinking how yummy this Chicken Alfredo we had last week would be!
This stuff is so good though....I used whole wheat, whole grain pasta (so a little of it was healthy), and then I made the alfredo sauce using the recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook, and grilled up a couple of chicken breasts (cut into strips). For the mushrooms (they're what makes it!) I cooked them up separately with olive oil, a little salt and pepper, garlic powder, and Tony's Creole seasoning (which is a must when cooking mushrooms). Then you mix everything together, including the liquids from the cooked mushrooms, and you eat it....trying to only stick with one helping! Yes, it's that good, plus reheated leftovers are amazing too, and I'm not a big fan of leftovers. :)
Ok, I'll quit procrastinating and go make my green smoothie.....
Oh, and I wish I could have gotten a video of the girls just now because they were dancing around with their big teddy bears, which they were calling their husbands! Life is never dull around here......
and yes, I know that was totally random, but hey, it's a random day. :)
Alright, I really am going to go and make my green smoothie now, but can I just say first that I prefer pink smoothies.
