Our one and only camera was purchased the day after our wedding back in 2006 right before we checked into the downtown Marriott in Des Moines that night and then bordered a plan the next morning for our honeymoon.
Needless to say, it has seen better days.
It sometimes takes me 10-15 tries of turning the camera on and off to get those damn pics off of it. Tonight I had zero success.
I meant to show you my "go to" rice casserole that I make at least once a month, because of it's simplicity, but that will have to be another night. I just can't give you a recipe without a picture.
It's like chocolate covered strawberries without the champagne.
So bare with me and I'll keep trying. In the mean time, if you see any giveaways for a stellar camera please let me know!

I announced earlier in the week that I was going back to work. That started Wednesday, daycare started yesterday, and this weekend we are visiting the in-laws, therefore my blog has been neglected!
Sorry, folks. I do have some recipes on back order to share with you, including a rice casserole and zucchini cookies, but I just haven't had the time or energy to put them up. Hang in there, they are coming.
As for announcement #2...
Let's see if you can guess.
- For the last two months I've been eating cereal, fruit, pizza and ice cream.
- I've been going to bed around 8:00 p.m.
- The couch has been my best friend.
You got it. We are expecting baby #2!!! Little man is going to big brother. I'm 12 weeks along and everything is going great. Not to say that weeks 6-11 were pleasant. Nothing like feeling nauseous 24/7. All you ladies out there with kids know what I'm talking about. That has since mostly passed, but I definitely still have some food aversions.
Due to those food issues, my posts have been lacking. I haven't been in the cooking/baking mood, and frankly I didn't think you like to see my endless cereal bowls that made my dinner table.
I promise I'll post a belly shot soon. And yes, there is a belly. No one tells you how much faster the second one pops out!
And I promise to share recipes soon! Just have been busy baby making, finding/starting work, finding daycares, and turning my nose up to most food.

Of course, I packed the diaper bag full of every essential and am still worrying if they remembered everything, but I am also going to relish in some alone time. When is the last time I spent a good 8 hours by myself?
I can't remember.
Most 29 year olds would catch up with a girlfriend (too last minute to do that) or head out on the town, but I think my night will consist of this:
- No Cooking (I refuse to go to the store until later this week, to stock up for the little man's 1st birthday party!)
- Watching a movie (Marley & Me, bring on the tears...)
- Grabbing a sandwich from Quizno's
Speaking of fast food...although I rarely eat it, every once in awhile I like a good sandwich. Tonight a toasted turkey and cheddar sub from Quizno's sounds like it might hit the spot.
What is your favorite fast food restaurant?
