Big (big) News!

That's right...that little baby floating around over there to the left is what the baby in my belly looks like. Yes...there is a baby in my belly, people...that means...I'm pregnant! I have a TEN MONTH OLD and baby #2 is due mid-July! Ella Rose and her new little sibling will be 18 months apart. I am currently about 7 1/2 weeks. We just now started telling folks, so if you're a good friend and I haven't told you yet, you're getting a phone call tomorrow! I just couldn't wait any longer to put that cute little widget on my blog!

So now you know.

Ohhh no. I was tagged for this by my (previously) sweet friend Brandie, and because I'm a good sport, I'm gonna do it. But don't JUDGE me. The thing is, I am supposed to pick the 4th picture out of the 4th picture folder on my computer, post it, then explain what the picture is about...so here goes.
Digital cameras are wonderful - so many capabilities. I've been known to take a picture of myself in an outfit to see if I like it or not before I settle on it - and don't act like you've never done that. Well, in this picture, I was taking a picture of my hair to see if it looked decent from the side. (When I uploaded all my pictures from my camera, it was on there - I didn't intentionally save it.) So like I said, don't judge me. Now you know how weird I am, but I'm sure you do weird things too.



And I am supposed to tag 4 friends to do the same. Soooo, the lucky 4 are:

If your fella was with my fella...

over the weekend, then he has asked for this recipe...and requested that I place it on my blog for you to take down ;). So gals, do your wifely duty - copy it down and surprise him with some yummy goodness this next weekend - he'll love you for it!
These are the (easiest) most scrumptous bits of ooey gooey chocolatey goodness you've ever tasted. Seriously.

chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup veg oil
1/3 bag of chocolate chips (or more or less depending on your taste)
powdered sugar

Mix all the junk in together - put it in the freezer for 10 or so minutes to let it harden a bit (and it will be easier to work with). Scoop into balls and drop each ball into powdered sugar and roll it all around. Place powdered sugar-covered dough balls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. (They will look a little doughy when they come out of the oven, but they will harden up a bit - so don't overcook them!)

P.S.- You can also make this same recipe with lemon cake mix. My favorite! All you need to do is nix the chocolate chips, and add 1 teaspoon lemon extract or a bit of lemon juice. Yum-my!

Trust me, gal pals - these are a hit everywhere I take them...and no one has to know how easy they are to make!
This is a picture of what they look like. I decided to make some today to take to a small group leader training event that Jonnie and I are going to tonight, so thought I'd give you a glimpse of the bit of heaven of which you are about to partake.

I'm not proud at all. I don't know why you would think that.

MSU Tailgating

Last weekend, we took Ella Rose to her first tailgate. She's her father's daughter - she loved it. ;)
We met up with some of our sweet (fun!) friends and hung out a bit before the game. It was nice to see everyone, as we are spread out all over the south. We love you all!!





Ella Rose can be happy anywhere just as long as we bring the puffs along...
