I smell chocolate chip cookies

Since the hubby has been away, I've been finding myself in the kitchen baking tasty treats(since he usually does it). I used to bake alot when I was younger but I got away from it over the years and I forgot that I'm not bad at it either. I'm much better with the baked goods rather then cooking that's for sure, my idea of dinner (lets take tonight for example) is a spring mix salad with cucumbers, tomato, celery, carrots, bits of cheese and chicken breast. Nice and easy, I make spaghetti alot too, I'm sure my little P is getting sick of that. I do miss Ron alot for the good cooking, he's a great chef and makes excellent food. He'll be home Thursday sometime, so I may be able to score a meal or two when he's home (fingers crossed because I'm hungry, *LOL*). Okay back to the kitchen here, Paisley and I decided to bake some chocolate chip cookies (our all time favourtie cookie). I found a recipe online and cut all the ingredients in half because Paisley and I DO NOT need that many cookies, infact there's too many as it is so the neighbour kids might get some tomorrow. I did that last week with the chocolate cake that I baked, I sent over half the cake for them. The idea of a sweet treat is that I just want a taste, not eat it all and besides with being pregnant and all I don't want to blow up like a blimp with all this baking. :-) It makes me feel good to give it away too and I really hope my recipients enjoy it. The cake was damn good and the cookies were also awesome as well. Mmm!

Paisley wanted to take some pictures of her and my belly tonight. Don't mind my strechy marks, *LOL* I got them after I had Paisley and now they're all popping out again. Trying to touch them out on photoshop tonight does not sound like my idea good time to me but they're still fun pictures so I'll put 'em up anyway. :-) On Thursday of this week I will be 26 weeks pregnant, it's actually crazy how fast the time goes. I've been really thinking about the 3-D ultrasound lately and would kind of like to have it done. So I told my mom about it the other day and she said she'd give me some money for it for my birthday (which is coming up next month on the 17th) if it was something that I really wanted done. There's a place that does it fairly close by, so I'm really considering it. Ofcourse I have to talk to Ron about it. I'd only be wanting the most basic package(as it is quite pricey). I don't need the"memory dvd" or anything like that and I'd be happy with just a few pictures. It's funny, because a few of the girls that I work with had it done and I said I would not be having it done and thought it kind of ruined the surprise but now that I'm further along in my pregnancy I'm changing my mind and sort of excited about it. I think it will be fun, I just hope Ron goes for it. :-)

As for knitting, I'm still plugging away on Paisley's top down sweater, I've just got the sleeves left to knit which shouldn't take long at all. I've been just slacking and dying to start baby stuff. I'll post pictures of knitting stuff soon! I also finally got to give Kira (the girl I worked with who had her baby boy at the beginning of Jan.) the raglan sweater I made for her little guy Robbie. She's supposed to email me a picture of him in it. She also LOVED Ruth's Perfect Baby Booties, I can't wait to see him in the ensemble.

Well, I suppose that's it for now. I'm feeling alot better after being sick earlier this month. The antibiotics definitely helped me and hopefully I won't be getting anymore colds this winter.

Great looking cookies!

I just tried a recipe for freezer chocolate chip cookies. They turned out great. The awesome thing about them is you can slice a few off and put it back int he freezer. That would be prefect for you!!

I found the recipe at "A Friend to Knit with" her blog is in my sidebar. I will post about trying them just probably not till next week.
Your belly shots are so sweet.

I love the pictures.

Stretch marks are battle scars for mothers ... like special and unique tattoos. I'm covered in them (belly) but they're not so bad considering the product that comes out of there. :)

My stretch marks were worse in my first pregnancy, that's for sure. I am trying a product I got at Walmart (also found at Shopper's) called Bio-Oil.
