Baby Fever at its Peak

by Meghann on June 2, 2011

Dear Journal,

I found the world’s cutest baby and I never want to give him back.

Love, Meghann

Seriously. How cute is this kid? I could stare at him all day and never get bored.

I would like you to meet Nathan Patrick. He is less than 24 hours old (probably the youngest newborn I’ve ever held! ) and arrived on this planet via his AMAZING parents – Callie and Nate – yesterday evening.

Derek and I took a little field trip to St. Pete this afternoon to congratulate the new parents and their gorgeous little boy.

It’s hard to believe that a week ago I was meeting Callie for lunch and this precious little face was still comfy and cozy in her belly. The miracle of life truly is a miracle!

I want one.

Just like him.

Scratch that.

I want three.

Two years apart.

Two boys and one girl.

Thankyouverymuch. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s seriously been baby fever lately. I feel like the majority of my friends are expecting or want to be expecting. I told Derek we need to skip this whole marriage thing and jump right on the baby train. He didn’t find that too amusing. Still, I’ll take it as a good sign he didn’t start running for the hills.;)

(Go Noles!)

Tomorrow Derek and I are heading to the hospital once again, only this time it will be in anticipation of the arrival of his new niece. Derek’s brother’s girlfriend (I hate how that’s such a mouthful!) is being induced tomorrow morning at 6:00am. Hopefully – if all goes according to plan – Derek will be Uncle Derek and I’ll be Aunt Meghann (we’ve already decided I’ll be Aunt Meghann with or without a ring ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) by this time tomorrow. I can’t wait to hold another baby in my arms! ๐Ÿ™‚

Before the hospital today, Derek and I stopped at Publix to pick up some subs for Callie and Nate (new parents need to eat!) and I grabbed a Berry Veggie Naked Drink.

Most of the bottled smoothie drinks have banana in them, so I rarely drink one, but this one passed the banana free test!

The drink itself was really thick and very intense. I let Derek try a sip and he mentioned something about resembling a Capri Sun and I’d have to agree. It was extra sweet and berry-licious just like a capri sun. I drank about half, but couldn’t stomach the rest.

We left Callie and Nate right around rush hour and figured it was pointless to fight traffic. Instead we decided to stay in town and have dinner while the traffic died down.

After reviewing a few menus in downtown we both agreed on The Moon Under Water – a British themed restaurant with a menu full of variety and decent pricing – was worth trying.

Newcastle for me

Yuengling for Derek

I ordered the Feta Tabouli, which was a little smaller of a meal than I anticipated, but still tasty.

Fine by me. I wanted to save room for gelato anyways.

Derek and I shared a mix of Hazelnut, Salted Caramel, Coffee, and Peanut Butter. Yum. ๐Ÿ™‚

We just arrived back home and I’m ready to kick up my feet and call it a night.

Good Night!

Can’t Win Them All

June 2, 2011

And this dish was not a winner. Over seasoned veggies… a homemade dressing that was too pungent…. an addition of peanuts that wasn’t needed…. yuck. For once, it wasn’t even worth finishing (and I’m usually a stickler for finishing my plate good or bad). At least the cornbread was good! It was my last piece more ยป

National Running Day…a day late

June 2, 2011

I know, I know…. I totally dropped the ball on National Running Day yesterday. I hope my running counterparts will please forgive me. :/ National Running Day is a GREAT holiday that encourages people to get out, move, and celebrate the sport I’ve fallen in love with over the past three years. Following the #RunningDay more ยป
