Thank you all SO much for your kind words on my last post. From the bottom of my heart, I am so grateful for all of your prayers and sweet comments. It meant the world to me, and I could honestly feel comfort from your prayers. We are already starting to feel much better. Every now and then random things like spying my prenatal vitamins under the bathroom sink, or that fact that every single ad on the internet is now about babies (how do they know???) still hit me with a little stab of sadness, but it gets better every day. It feels strangely morbid to look on the bright side, but you just kind have to. So for now, I'm enjoying drinking caffeinated beverages, doing hard work outs, and we planned a little ski trip for the weekend of New Years. That's one thing I've learned in the last few years- no matter what happens, time continues to tick along. And you do your best to just pick up and keep going along with it.
Now. Moving on from serious and sad topics, and back our regularly scheduled programming of really riveting repartee (now featuring: alliteration!).
Hey, speaking of weird foods I love, who else has tried these chocolate covered peppermint peeps? They are so freakin good. I died and went to heaven. I know I am about the only person on earth who loves peeps, but it is time to open your minds, friends. These peeps are totally different than the usual peep (which is also delicious) and even the most staunch confectionery chicken hater will like them. Hearken, o ye despisers of marshmallow chickens. Give peeps a chance. Heh heh. Like give peace a chance, get it? But seriously, try them and immediately alert me that you have changed your ways and are now converted to the sugary and fluffy side of life.
To end this blog entry in a bizarre and arbitrary fashion, as I am wont to do, here is a recent video that I really enjoyed:
Michael Buble is so dreamy, and Jimmy Fallon is hilarious.
