Happy Easter... to Carleton!

For Easter I got Carleton a bunch of red Starburst Jelly Beans (in the plastic eggs), Kit Kats, Oreos, Oreo Cakesters, and Cadbury Eggs. All in a cute basket with fluffy green Easter grass.

Carleton made me this:
He wanted to add celery but he heard my coming and with his sprained ankle couldn't hobble fast enough to finish. AND the chocolate is one that's leftover from a Valentine's day box of chocolates my mom got me, nice try, husband. Thanks for the, "you need to go on a diet" message for easter :p

I wanted to make this for my dad's birthday, but didn't have time and didn't want the chocolate to be soggy, so I made it Sunday for Easter. YUMMMMMM, thank you Allison for this delicious recipe. I used my mom's pie pan which was a couple inches bigger than any of mine. I didn't realize this until after I already made the crust, oops. I used three entire cartons of strawberries and expected it to be piled high, but again those few inches make a HUGE difference! Oh well, it still tasted phenomenal:)

I hope you all had a great Easter, and in Carleton's defense, he did say we could trade Easter baskets. He still hasn't opened the oreo cakesters which I'm dying to try...maybe tonight, wish me luck!

Did I say Happy Spring?

I meant Happy April Fools Day:) After the phone calls and e-mails I received, I figured I'd just throw it out there that yes, that was a joke. But hey I did give you a lot of clues, the random "South Cobb" OBGYN, anyone from around here should know it would probably read UNC or Duke or something like that, and the date...2007, yes all of this was on purpose. I wanted to have a little fun on the holiday since I seem to always be the one suckered, so I decided hey why not; however, I did not want to get the rumor mill too carried away for those who might not check back to see my follow-up post (hence the subtle clues). My mom asked me a few weeks ago if I was pregnant because she'd heard from a few people, who had heard from several people, so again, no, just to dispel any rumors:)

PS- I was about to be REALLY sad if people started commenting, "I thought I noticed a baby bump" or "I totally called it when I saw you last", then the joke would've totally been on me. So thank you for not posting those kinds of comments;)

And because I find it impossible to post without a picture, here's one of Weston, I haven't posted on either blog yet.
