sugar baby

one of the strange side effects of my pregnancy is that i lost my sweet tooth. for those that know me, you realize what a big deal this is. i have a huge sweet tooth. i can eat massive amounts of treats at any time of the day without it phasing me (besides the inevitable weight gain and perhaps needing a larger pair of pants). so when sweets lost their appeal i almost didn't feel like myself. i could sit in front of a plate of cookies or a bowl of candy without being tempted (definitely not typical for me since i have zero self control). 

but the inevitable has happened. about 3 weeks ago i began to be tempted again by sugary goodness and it has steadily increased. on saturday night i couldn't get enough of the sour patch kids and swedish fish seth and megan brought over. i was unable to walk past the cute girl scouts in front of king soopers and found myself the proud owner of a red box of tagalongs. this morning by 9:15 am i had eaten the 3 girl scout cookies i had brought for lunch. and then i saw my friend jessica's blog which included a picture of donuts (thanks jess. or should i say thanks dan). suddenly all i could think about were donuts. lucky (or unlucky) for me there is a lamar's donuts conveniently located near my office. my mind was made up and it was clear where i would be spending my lunch break. in an effort to "minimize" the effect of the donut i decided to walk there (although let's be honest, i would have had to run a marathon to "minimize" the effect). i will admit that i did feel a little silly power walking back to the office with a donut bag in my hand. but once i bit into that apple fritter it didn't matter. it was totally worth it (trust me, you have to try the apple fritter. you will become a believer). if it counts for anything, i did save half of it for dave :) 

welcome back sweet tooth!

I would contribute to the sweet tooth if we lived closer to each other :D

Yum, swedish fish are my favorite. I think that last month of my pregnancy with Ellie, Will brought me home German Chocolate Cake every other night. It was so good. I hope this doesn't add to your cravings, but it is the best cake!

Too bad my sweet tooth has never left. With my mom here it's been even worse. We're into Almond Rocha at the moment. By the way, I've never said congrats on having a boy. I really wanted a boy first - everyone needs a big brother in my opinion. Do I hear future wedding bells for Baby Dixon and Baby Wessler??
