this weekend, we have been painting and eating and that's pretty much it! i should clarify that i have not done ANY painting at all, but i have been a supportive wife and watched mike paint. my experiences with painting in the past have not been so seems like such a good idea when i decide to paint a room, but about 1 hour into it, i'm SO over it all and then it's just not fun. but mike is a great painter. he took off all the switchplates and taped everything off...then painted the bright pink wall. he's going to finish tommorrow with the pale pink walls. don't you love this pink?! i'm so excited to see it all finished! look at how fat my face is getting...ugh!

and last night i made a yum dinner...i stuffed pork chops with a mixture of spinach, ricotta, cream cheese, s&p, and garlic salt and baked at 400*. i boiled egg noodles and mixed them with butter and put the stuffed pork chop over them. it was really good! (it was a variation of a recipe i had seen on everyday italian the other day)

and this morning, i made mushroom, bacon, and cheddar omelets. i was trying to recreate our favorite omelets at cafe cappucino but they weren't quite the same...but still good.

and here i am at 25 weeks...only 15 to go!


  1. The pink is fabulous! It is the perfect shade! I can't wait to see the finished nursery. Oh, and you look adorable! Your face is not getting fat at all!

  2. What shade of pink is that? It almost looks salmon. Love it!
    You are precious, don't worry...your face is not fat :)

  3. I can't wait to see Sadie's nursery complete! You have great style! What paint colors/companies are you using? We find out in 10 days what we're having (hopefully!) so I'm starting to get ideas on paints and decorations!

    By the way, your face is NOT FAT at ALL! You make pregnancy look good, unlike some of us ;)

  4. love the paint! i didn't know you were doing a bright pink wall~~i like it! that dinner makes me hungry and it's only 9:30.
    your face isn't fat--you look so cute :)

  5. First, let's clear up the fat talk! You are not fat faced! You look very attractive almost ALL the time! Except when you fell!:(

    Little Sadie's room is going to be a princess room! Love the accent wall and can't wait to see it finished!

    The pork chops were wonderful! I know after one sample of them!

  6. thanks girls! you made me feel much better about my chubby cheeks!

    the paint we are using for sadie's room is from sherwin williams...the light pink is called diminutive pink and the bright pink is a custom color. if any of you want the exact mix, i can get it for you.

  7. Danielle, your face is not fat at all. In fact, you look beautiful as always!

    Also, the stuffed pork chops and omelets look delish. I always get hungry looking at your food pictures. I know you're a great cook!

    Sadie's room will be gorgeous! A room fit for a little princess!

  8. Love the color...and the lighting is awesome! Cannot wait to see the end product!
