22 Weeks

So this week, Scott and I decided to take a "babymoon" to the wonderful, blustery cold, city of Chicago.  I'll post some pictures, one of which you're bound to get a kick out of.  There are lots of different things that I decided:

1.  I still love cheeseburgers (Kopp's up in MKE last night was pretty spectacular).
2.  Chicago Hot-Dogs are a close running for my second favorite food right now, sans the peppers d/t the limited availability of Tums.
3.  Deep dish pizza from Giordano's is still pretty amazing, whether it's hot or cold, AND it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner.
4.  The baby loves Science (you'll see a picture soon of this).
5.  My husband is still the sweetest man ever.
6.  Garrett popcorn (particularly the pecan-carmel) is also pretty spectacular.

With that being said, I owe you a wives' tale today, despite the fact that I have 2 very exhausted dachshunds sleeping on my lap and I can barely keep my eyes open from exhaustion (we also spent 3 days with our favorite nieces who tuckered us out).  So, this one is for my Mom.  I really hope she doesn't get upset that I noticed this...

The Grandmother's influence is a "Gray" area for this one.  If the Maternal Grandmother has gray hair, natural or dyed, the Mother will deliver a BOY and if the Maternal Grandmother has another hair color (other than gray), the Mother will deliver a GIRL.

Seeing as though I just visited with my lovely Mother this morning and noticed that she's a day or two overdue for a dye-job, we'll just say that I'm going to deliver a BOY and leave it at that.  I had a pretty wonderful time and it was hard to say goodbye to my family, particularly my brother since the next time he sees me, I'll have a little one of my own.

Girl - 8
Boy - 9


  1. Good I'm glad you got popcorn. I meant to tell you to go to Garrett's. The "chicago style" which I never new existed, is carmel and cheese together...pretty tasty. Good to see you guys!

  2. oh i'm so jealous of your kopps! we actually shipped their custard in for our wedding. I've been craving a butterburger....alas florida is a long way away from a butterburger.
