I didn’t realize that this was such a regional thing, because I grew up in metro-Milwaukee (not far from Racine). I can’t find these delicious beauties anywhere near where we live, and it’s driving me bananas! My taste buds/hormones are dreaming of having some Almond Racine Kringle in my mouth immediately. This craving is killing me softly (I had this same craving with C, too!).

Thankfully, I found some while visiting Hubster’s family for our Christmas celebration. SO YUMMY.
I’ve been craving raspberries often with Baby Deuce. Whenever I pop one of those delicious berries into my mouth (never without checking the inside for a worm, of course), it brings back memories of sneaking raspberries with the neighbor kids in their grandparents’ raspberry patch. Those raspberries, fresh from the vine, were the best in the world.
Ever get really excited to make something, but it doesn’t turn out like you hoped? I made some cinnamon rolls this morning (admittedly, they came from one of those tubes found in the refrigerated aisle). They smell absolutely amazing and I was so looking forward to enjoying one. Unfortunately, they smell about 50 times better than they taste. Yet, I somehow managed to go on a crazy pregnant lady binge and eat almost all the tops off of them. You know, the good part with the icing.
I LOVE sushi rolls. LOVE them. I’ve really missed them since getting pregnant. California Rolls help dull the cravings for raw sushi, but I still cannot wait to scarf down a spicy tuna roll.
Tonight, I had to get creative because I didn’t have any crab, avocado or cucumber in the house. I ended up making a cream cheese roll and dressing it up with some spicy sauce. But I’ll still be dreaming about this:
I had a killer craving for Starburst this afternoon and all but forced the Hubster to go buy me some. Ever wonderful and devoted, he did. I proceeded to eat WAY too many of them. I feel like I’m going to be ravaged with cavities from the sugar, but at the same time…I don’t really care!
Size of baby: Large Cantaloupe (up to 22 inches, approx, 5.5 lbs)
Newly craved food: Veggie subs from Subway
Food aversions: Beef, fried foods
What do you miss? Being comfortable.
What are you looking forward to? The ability to sleep on my back, stomach, or however I wish.
What was the BEST part of last week? Hubster was able to attend our childbirth class and car seat safety class with me, which was awesome! I attended one class solo and was the only one there without a partner…it was very sad, so I’m super glad he’s been able to be at the rest of them.
What was the WORST part of last week? The baby dropped and now I’ve been having a significant amount of hip, pelvic and back pain as well as cramping.
What do you miss: Being able to do anything without getting tired! Putting on pants without struggling. Being able to put on my own shoes (non-slip-ons, that is!).
What are you looking forward to: Hubster and I are going to go to a movie this week.
What was the BEST part of last week? While Hubster was out of town for work, my parents came to visit. It was great to see them and have company – it would have been a VERY long, lonely weekend without them!!!
Newly craved food: Hot dogs, mint chocolate chip ice cream
Food aversions: Beef, fried foods
What do you miss: Over the past week or so, I was missing my friends and family who all live 5-6+ hours away. We saw them over the Christmas/New Year’s holidays, but will not be making another trip to see them until at least Memorial Day weekend. (We moved to another state over the summer.)
What are you looking forward to: Getting this kid outta me!! ;)
What was the BEST part of last week? Spending Saturday hanging out with Hubster. We went to a baby expo and won a basket filled with childrens’ toys! Won’t be able to use them for a few years, but it was still exciting
What was the WORST part of last week? Having a hard time falling asleep at night because Baby C moves so much. Waking up yelling in pain one night due to a leg cramp, which I haven’t had since December.
A little grainy, apparently my hand wasn't steady enough this morning!
