I don't know why but after every OB appointment I always feel like I deserve a treat. A food treat. A sugary food treat. A fattycakes sugary food treat. And as the appointments get more and more frequent, the treat trips obviously have to follow suit. It doesn't matter if I weigh in at seven pounds heavier than my clock in the two weeks prior (which of course has never happened)...I still feel like I deserve something special.
Today after I got home from my appointment I sat and thought about doughnuts that a certain reader had mentioned earlier this week and got right back in the car, drove to a local doughnut shop (as opposed to that foreign one down the way) and bought six doughnuts to split with Simon. I had four...he ate two. Fair. I still wasn't even kind of satisfied so I Googled, "how to make fatty doughnuts like a pro without shortening but with glaze out of milk but have soy milk". My fair Google answered swiftly and soundly and a few pretty hours later I had these...
I know they don't look good to me now either
I sent some in with Simon for the night crew at the hospital. I suspected he would (understandably) leave their ugly selves in the car but he sent this photographic evidence that he indeed left them out...
complete with foil gown still modestly draped
I think you're eyes are bleeding by now so I'll leave you alone for the time being.
oh wait..no I won't.
Julia, Simon and I did go to a new to us part of town today which was fun. A farmer's market complete with produce and produce and produce.
and a sign begging to be photographed by stereotypical p-a-r-e-n-t-s
(I think the van adds a nice splash of old fashioned class)
We didn't buy anything but we felt like green and responsible St. Louisans strolling through the fun
and for good measure a snap of Julia on the way home
1. stillllll working on independent bottle feeding
2. her omnipresent safety blanket in car: massive ice scraper
3. shielding drums from mom's Britney...or was it Lady Gaga?
and before I traipse off...some St. Louis lingo I've picked up:
a Sundae (as in ice cream) is not pronounced Sunday but actually Sun-duh.
