Last night when I got home from work I hopped on the treadmill for a quick 3 miles, jumped in the shower, and then helped Dan get dinner together to take over to our friends Eric and Aubrey’s house.

Eric and Aubrey just had a baby – Avery – and she is as cute as she could be. 


Even cuter with sunglasses on.



Can’t you just see the baby fevah steaming off of me?  I am surprised there isn’t smoke in the picture.  Hehehe. 

My favorite part about last night was seeing Eric, the new dad.


Eric has been Dan’s (and my) friend since Dan and I started dating.  When I found out Aubrey was pregnant I was so excited, but at the same time it was hard to picture Eric as a dad.  Then, when I found out they were having a girl, it was even harder.  I just couldn’t see it.  However, the second he proudly opened the door to welcome us in, I saw it.  It was so awesome to see how excited, proud, and nervous he was.  He could barely sit still telling us all the stories of the birth and since they came home.  I loved it.  He is going to be a great dad. 

Inspired by Gina’s baby meals, I thought it would be fun to bring over dinner to the new parents.  It was an unusually cold day, so Dan made chili and we brought over all the toppings.  I thought it would be nice that they wouldn’t have to worry about dinner.  But, as I type this, I remember that I didn’t do the dishes. Fail.  At least I tried.


I like my chili with a lot of mustard and fresh onion.  Anyone else?

Other Eats

I whipped up a green pepper and onion omelet for breakfast.  The apricots were so good!


I didn’t drop my lunch today.  Success!  The cottage cheese salad left over from the night before was delish!  With an extra tomato for good measure. 


Thought for the day

  1. After we move, we will have you over for Skyline chili.

  2. I like my chili with noodles. Yes, this is how we ate it growing up in Wisconsin. I didn't know people ate it WITHOUT noodles until I went to college. Funny things we learn in college, huh? ;-)
