dr's appt. and menu for the week

this is what sadie looks like at 37 weeks! wow! i can't believe she'll be here in 3 weeks or less. i had my 37 week appt. today and dr. b examined me and told me i'm not dilated at all. i told him he could just lie to me and make me feel better! hehe! but everything looks really good...she's head down and her heart rate was 141. i've gained a total of 26 pounds. have i said how much i love dr. b?? he's so calming and reassuring and answered my long list of questions today! so now i'm determined for the next few weeks just to relax and have some fun! i have baby showers to attend the next 2 weekends, mom and i are working on reorganizing our office space, and i've got a couple of crafty projects to do.

tonight, mike and i are making a yummy dinner and maybe staying up to watch the ball drop...if we can both stay awake that long ;)

i haven't shared a weekly menu in a long time, but that doesn't mean i haven't been cooking (and eating!) yesterday i was craving peanut butter blossoms, so i made some and they are heavenly. i think i had already eaten 6 of them before lunch today!

    48 HERSHEY'S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates

    Directions:1. Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from chocolates.

    2. Beat shortening and peanut butter in large bowl until well blended. Add 1/3 cup granulated sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into peanut butter mixture.

    3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in granulated sugar; place on ungreased cookie sheet.
