Some big news. . .

If you are regular reader than you may have noticed things have been spotty around my social media channels. Sure I’ve been pushing out one post after another as usual, but in terms of activity elsewhere—I could hardly find the energy. There’s a reason for that.


I’m having a baby! Matt and I are so excited. The boys are thrilled and have already placed their order for a baby sister. Matt and I, like any parents, just want a healthy baby, especially after trying for several months now. What we can all agree on is that, we can’t wait to meet the newest member of our family on May 28th—which by the way seems like almost an eternity. Even more so when I tell you this—the hardest part all this excitement: the smell of mixed butter and sugar makes me sick. Seriously. I can’t even get over this part. How does that happen?

I’m hoping this is not an indication of yet another non-sweeter consumer in the family. I’m really hoping this little one will inherit some of my sweet of tooth. But based on my current meal list of super spicy soup and iced tea—it’s not looking too promising. Even natural sweets like fruits (which I love) have been off the list, since that makes me sick too.

The only sickness that I refuse to relent to: butter and sugar. That’s right, this stubborn baker will beat that gag “reflex” into submission. So expect it to be business as usual around here.

No sweets today, because I wanted to share this super exciting news. But see you tomorrow for our regularly scheduled programming of sweets and indulgence.

    Naomi… you have my deepest sympathy! I was So sick with three of my pregnancies that I couldnt step foot in my kitchen. I had a few posts that I had to get up during the worst of things and even to this day when I look at those images I get nauseous. I am sure you are hearing about all the tips and tricks to help combat being sick in your first trimester, but if you need any more advice I have a LOT! :) Praying for you!

    How exciting! Congratulations! Very happy for your new little one to come. :-) Don’t things get better after the first trimester? In the meantime, if you’re up to it and feel like sharing, or if you’d rather share non-sweets, that’s OK, too.
