Stir Fry all the time.

Baby Rags hasn't been too picky for these past 12 weeks. The smell of garlic which I used to love is now a negative. Taylor discovered this when he sprinkled garlic powder on some ribs he was boiling and it woke me up from a deep sleep. I spent the rest of the day barricaded in my bedroom with a towel under the door, muttering very mean things.
One thing Baby has been craving is stir fry. When I realized I wasn't getting enough Vitamin C during the day (I'm not a fan of orange juice), I needed a recipe with lots of bell peppers (which contains almost triple the amount of Vitamin C as an orange). So I call my go-to lady when it comes to cooking and my mother-in-law recommended a stir fry that was easy to make and healthy. I have now entered into a relationship with this meal, and have had it twice in the past three days.  I'm reheating my left overs as we speak.

I'm 12 weeks now, just over the hurdle into my second trimester. Praise God.  The first two weeks I found out I was preggo was probably the worst for me. I hardly left my bed and was miserable because I always felt nauseas. The thought of making it another 8 weeks feeling that way was really depressing. But eventually, I learned how my body worked, and as long as I was never on empty, I felt better. Certain things triggered me to get sick a handful of times, but after my sister's 23 weeks of vomiting during her pregnancy, I considered myself blessed.

I found this adorable dress and bloomer pair online. If little Rags is a girl I definitely plan on sewing these. 

Admit it I would be the most handy mother ever if I make this.

This doesn't have anything to do with motherhood but I plan on getting my hair cut soon and this is what I landed on. Maybe a tad longer in the back.

I was a little hesitant to share this in case anyone snagged these ideas, but oh well. This is my favorite nursery I have come by.  I have already found the black and white chevron rug which I am in love with. The soft grey, white, and Tiffany blue color scheme with coral punches is genius.  The only change I would make would be the chair. I'm a rocker. Obviously this is, again, if Baby Rags is a girl. Which  not a single person seems to think, by the way. But if I'm having a boy, I plan to keep to the chevron rug and grey and white colors, but make the blue more of a boy blue. Not baby boy blue, but a deep blue.  My heart gets pumping just thinking of a whole new room to decorate. It's like Christmas.

And next week, I'll finally show some pictures of Baby Rags. Who is the size of a peach this week! Slowly making my way through the produce section.
