2 Sleeps Peeps; that’s all.

I’ve lifted up my shirt maybe 5,793,421 times because every twist, lift and crunch feels like I released 497 stretch marks.  And then, No.  Not so… Not one… YET.  They’re there though; I feel them…

Pretzel Crusted Cod - Toddler Friendly!

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/22/pretzel-crusted-cod/

Cod isn’t a fish I cook with often but I have no clue why!  It’s filling, hearty and delicious.  After making this dish, Cod will definitely be in the mix!  When I came home from the grocery store with my ‘new’ found fish, I put a post on Facebook requesting an easy, fast & flavorful recipe!  Of course, my lovelies (many…

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/22/what-i-wore-ready-to-pop/

This is the last ‘What I Wore’ Pregnancy Post you will see from me during this pregnancy and let me tell ya, there’s nothing fashionable about it!  I am ready to POP and if I don’t go into labor on my own this weekend, I’m scheduled for a C-Section on Monday, February 25, 2013.

PRAISE.…

Hospital Bag Must-Haves

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/20/hospital-bag-must-haves/

Being that this is my 3rd time packing for a 3 night, 4 day stay in the hospital (I have C-Sections), I feel well prepared for what’s to come and know just what I need for our time there!  I wouldn’t say that I over-pack but I definitely like having my stuff with me so I don’t take…

Pre-Spring Dining Room Decor

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/19/pre-spring-dining-decor/

I know.  I’m having a baby in less than 1 week and need/should stop but I just can’t.  I’ve never been this uncomfortable during a pregnancy so since sitting and laying hurt, I’m standing.  A LOT.  And finding things to do around our home!  I planned to leave all of the Valentine’s Day decor up until after the baby arrived but on…

Our Valentine's Day... From my iPhone

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/15/valentines-day-from-my-iphone/

Valentine’s Day is by far one of my favorite ‘holidays’ but I’m honestly not sure why.  It could be because of all the $1 crap I get our 2 little boys that excites them beyond words.  Or maybe it’s the excessive eating of chocolate all day that makes my tummy happy.  Or maybe it’s that I get to turn everything…

Crockpot Beef- My Own Recipe

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/13/crockpot-beef-my-own-recipe/

This is what I call a Lazy Mamas Crockpot Dinner!  I came up with this dish one morning with no recipe, I wasn’t inspired by anything in particular; I opened my refrigerator and had carrots, pre-sliced mushrooms and chuck roast.  That was dinner.  You can see how lazy I was because I didn’t even cut the carrots, but with…

DIY Valentine's Day Nails

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/11/diy-valentines-day-nails/

Oh my.  Valentine’s Day is this week and I am very very pregnant with not much energy by the end of the day to do much.  We plan to stay home with our 2 little boys, cook a comforting dinner (bc it’s cold outside!), eat chocolate (that’s a given) and well, just love on each other…

Hey Babe

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/09/hey-babe/

During my weekly pre-natal appointment, I couldn’t help but think about what a shame it is that this practice met me at this point of my pregnancy.  I’m definitely not myself.  I’m at the end of this roller-coaster ride.  Ready for it to be over.  Ready to get off and not ride again until I eat an ice-cream cone, take a bathroom break, lounge around,…

Been a While... Let's Catch Up.

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/07/been-a-while/

I’m alive.  and large.  and Pregnant.  Still.  I haven’t wrote in my blog recently because honestly, by the end of the night (my blogging/writing time) I’m spent and my brain stops functioning.  Literally.  It stops.  I’ve been a busy little bee around our nest though!  Some days I ‘forget’ that I have an extra X lbs attached to my…

What I Wore + My Sprinkle

FEBRUARY IS OFFICIALLY HERE!!!

Let’s shout it from the rooftop!  I made it to February!  Only 3 weeks, 3 sleeps to go!  Or 24 days!  What sounds better?  I can’t decide if saying the number 3 vs. 24 or saying the word weeks vs. days sounds better.  Either way; I…

My 5 Fav Drugstore Beauty Products

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/31/my-5-fav-drugstore-beauty-products/

For those of you who don’t know, my parents have owned a hairstyling studio for almost 30 years now and it has been one of the most fun parts of my ‘girly’ life.  Growing up, I was able to experiment with hair color, styles, beauty products and more!  A girls dream, right?  I’ve had some of the best…

Crockpot Mexican Chicken

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/28/crockpot-mexican-chicken/

I put together this crockpot on a cold, snowy day.  I knew by lunch-time that the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen cooking dinner come 5pm so this was perfect!  I put all of the ingredients in the crockpot, stirred and turned it on high for 4 hours.

Though I couldn’t taste anything (thank…

What I Wore: 35 Weeks Pregnant

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/25/what-i-wore-35-weeks-pregnant/

As of today, I have 4 weeks, 3 sleeps left in this pregnancy; yippee!!!  Unless however, baby decides to make an appearance earlier (which I would be totally fine with).  A lot has changed for me this week.  Baby dropped and moved off of my sciatic nerve (yay!) and into pressure zone (boo!…

Keeping Calm. And Quiet.

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/23/keeping-calm-and-quiet/

Have you ever logged onto Facebook and felt like you could comment on just about everyone’s status update?

In a not so kind, bubbly or loving way?

Well, I guess you could say that I know I’ve reached that point in pregnancy where I need to keep quiet.  and calm.  and hold…

Shari's Berries

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/18/sharis-berries/

It’s safe to say that I love sweets.  And chocolate.  And cookies.  And well, I’m pregnant too  (as if I haven’t mentioned that recently *wink*).  Pregnant or not, I will never turn down the opportunity to eat something sweet!  I had the chance to review a product (of my choice) from…

*NEW STYLE POST* What I Wore: 34 weeks Pregnant! http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/16/what-i-wore-34-weeks-pregnant/

Can it be that in just 6 weeks; well, 5 weeks 4 sleeps (who’s counting?) we will meet our 3rd child!?!  Time really flew by this pregnancy yet I find myself saying, “I’m not going to make it.” much earlier than I did before!  By the end of my days, I’m…

Diaper Bag Essentials

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/15/diaper-bag-essentials/

As I approach the, “Holy Moly, I better get ready for an infant!” stage, I’ve been starting to put together my diaper bag and hospital bag for baby #3!  I feel like I’ve come a long way in packing my diaper bag.  When I had Rocco, I was (obviously) a first time mom and packed him up as if we were going away for a week!  I…
