Dog Days.

Ohhhhhh my goodness. I think instead of nicknaming this baby the "turkey" it should be named the "hot dog." I have developed this insane, over the top craving for hot dogs. Which means, weekly (sometimes bi/tri-weekly) trips to the "DOG HOUSE." Maeve knows it so well now, that she starts woofing like a dog when we pull up... omg. I'm still only at 1 hot dog per trip (although I told Ryan this could be increasing soon) but the problem is, I also eat fries & rice pudding. It really is a horribly fattening meal that I can only get away with eating while I'm preggo. The thing is, apparently hot dogs aren't the best thing to eat while pregnant- nitrates or something or other is in them which isn't great for the baby. That is the ONLY reason that I am limiting my intake of the dogs to once or twice (sometimes three) times a week. I am assuming my hot dog, french fry and pudding consumption is also the reason why my maternity capris are starting to tighten around my tummy. I could also account the 4 lbs. I've gained in the past month to my dog diet. Anyways, I thought I'd document this intense craving. exciting stuff around here, eh? :)

Yup, never heard of it either...but doesn't sound very good to me since it doesn't have chocolate in it:). I've seen some really cute boy beddings, one with animals at Target. I'm NOT AT ALL a trucks, sports, animal theme person either.

How was spending Gymbucks? I went to GR yesterday and got 22 items for 135! WHOOO HOOO. They have some cute lines out and don't you just LOVE the polka dots? Can't wait until it goes on sale...:)

OMG Shelby- I actually really like some of the boys clothes at gymbo right now! I got a going home outfit and a few other boy things that I was actually excited about getting! PLUS a few weeks ago, I was in gymbo and they ran my CC told me it didn't go through so then I paid cash- well it turned out my card DID go through (the cashier was a new girl... she had no clue what she was doing) So I went back in there to get a refund and they gave me my money back PLUS a 30% comp. on my next purchase!!!!!!!! I saved the 30% because I'm going to try to use it w/ the gymbucks I have left- not sure if they'll let me or not... but we'll see.
