APB on Pudding Pops?

I haven't really been craving a lot. Really nothing, actually, but I like to use it as an excuse with Chris sometimes.. haha. Except for TCBY. I'll take that cup of heaven anytime... YUM.

BUT for the past 3 weeks, all I've been wanting are Jello Pudding Pops! I cannot think of anything else, and I can't find them anywhere!!! The Randalls by my house that closed last year sold them and I only bought them once, (although I ate the entire box in 4 days) but now I can't find them anywhere! I know that everyone remembers them, you can't not. Seriously. Remember how there was that crunchy icy layer on the outside? THAT'S what I want. Well, that followed by 18 pudding pops.

So please, I am begging you! If you find yourself at HEB, Randalls, Walmart, etc and find them PLEASE let me know!

Until then.... I'll just be eating my regular popsicles. They're good too, but don't have the icy layer.

Edit- Ok, so because of my mad Googling skillz, I found a store locator and it turns out that the only place in Austin that is now carrying them is the Randalls on Bee Caves. So... tomorrow.. I'll be venturing to South Austin! Yippee!

The Start of my Insanity

I'm not a crier. I'm really not. I didn't even well up at the wedding and I was 8 weeks pregnant. It's not that I don't enjoy a good eye swelling cry every once in a while, but the opportunity never really presents itself. Except for now. I'm now 12 weeks pregnant, and my eyes well up at the dumbest things. The Applebee's commercial where the local high school football team loses and the restaurant stays open just for them. I well up. Country songs where people have cancer. Tears. Random acts of kindness. Puffy eyes.

What do I NOT cry at? The 2 hour heart wrenching season finale of Greys Anatomy. Dogs are being put to sleep, people are dying, crying, it's terrible. Watched all 2 hours with a straight face, eating a popsicle. (Which I eat about 5 of per night.. totally another story)

What DO I cry at? Wheel of Fortune where the college girl wins $100,000 at the end by solving a tough puzzle. (Cue record scratching.... ) WHAT? Yes.

I think that it's all downhill from here. Can't wait, what's next?

Awkward Jr.?

Because of my big mouth, most people know but on or around December 1, 2006 there will be an Awkward Jr.! That's right, I drank the punch. Surprised? Me too! But it's starting to sink in. Now that the wedding is over with, I am starting to get excited about it. I am currently 10 weeks along and will have my first ultrasound on Monday, May 15. That is when we'll hear the heartbeat for the first time. A friend of mine told me about this theory that the bpm is related to the sex of the baby. Not sure how true it is, but my luck is it will be somewhere in the middle so that it won't apply to me anyway.

It's really weird to think that right now I have something growing inside of me. Besides gas, I mean. Don't even get me started on that part, I could blow your mind. (No pun intended) But that's another story for another day. Well, probably not. I might just stop there and not tell you all about the reason that Chris cries himself to sleep at night.

So, yes, this little drinker is on hiatus until she doesn't feel guilty about drinking herself to sleep in front of the baby. Just kidding... But I really wish that virgin margaritas were possible. Mockaritas? Man, I crack myself up.
