They put up these cute little mock street signs on our exercise trail system here in Santa Fe and I think it's so cute.
Anyway, back to my story. The moment we got home I went to pull that cord you see to your left of the gate to open it and it snapped before the gate opened. This is the ONLY way into our house. We have a mini fortress around our house.
So now the only option is to scale this fence on the other side of the house. It appears as if it opens but doesn't because it had a board going across the back of it so you can only open it from the INSIDE of the yard.
So at 5 months pregnant after walking for 2.5 hours I got to scale this wall and traipse through knee high weds and trees to get around to the gate and fix the cord.
How far along? 21 weeks

Stretchmarks: just a million old ones
Maternity Clothes: Yes......I can still wear some non maternity stuff but majority is maternity.
Names: If it's a boy we will name him after my bother, if it's a girl we finally have one name kinda picked out and no I won't tell until he/'she is born.
Gender: Surprise baby........but I will say that yesterday at the Ultra sound I was trying not to look at the screen too much because I was worried I would see something. And of course now I THINK I might know what it is but with my luck it will be the exact opposite so still a surprise baby.
Movement: YUP.........Moving more and more all the time
Sleep: Not too bad. I get at least a few 2 hours stretches a night. I'm grateful.
Symptoms: Some new round ligamnet pains in my lower pelvis and the usual, Nausea and Vomiting come an go along with dizziness and migraines. I'm stating to get pretty tired a lot too. Still praying and hoping this gets better. I would like to be able to go to work every week.

What I miss: RUNNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What I am Looking forward to: Halloween and my Milton's 3rd Birthday
Milestones: A healthy baby via ultrasound:) AND I actually managed to clean out 2 whole dresser drawers of MIlton's. It so hard keeping up with the constant clothes rotation when the kids are growing so fast. I am always behind.
I'm so honored to have been chosen to be a SWEAT PINK GIRL..............I feel slightly under qualified since I;m 5 months pregnant but my drive will NEVER go away and I still walk 2 miles a day.
Just wait till this rug rat comes out..........I'll be racking up those fast miles like nobodies business.
Aren't their signature pink shoe laces the cutest thing ever? I LOVE THEM!!!!!!
So, I thought maybe I would give 2 pairs away and keep the rest for myself.
Today we played in the yard for a few hours after their nap. My hubby had a gig out of town so it was just me and the babes tonight.
They are so big. I can't believe it!
We brought the kids into see the ultra sound and they both waved and said "hi baby". It was cute. They were thoroughly amused by the whole thing. But little Milton doesn't like the pictures and think they look scary. I don't blame him, they kinda do!

BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!
Brrrrr.........................It got down right cold this week here at 7000 feet so our daily walks have become regular snuggle sessions. aren't they the cutest?
To go along with that theme I made homemade chicken pot pies which you know is my specialty. You can find the recipe HERE
Hello flaky deliciousness. Get in my belly. I know the baby loves you
We are still harvesting tomatoes and I had the very unfortunate experience at 3AM while running to the kitchen for a banana to step on this gigantic half eaten tomato.
Thank you toddlers for this one!!!
Now I have decided that I want to grow my hair down to my back again so I drenched it from root to tip in organic coconut oil. We'll see how that turns out and if it seems to help condition it at all! I might do ti for 2 days straight with out washing. We'll just see how it goes and if I can handle the grease ball.
Update: I only left it on for one night but slept in it and left it until noon. My hair was considerably softer. I definitely recommend. I'm going to do it once a week!
You might remember back in the Spring I took a 4 month hiatus from my person facebook page. Then I got back on and got addicted again. Posting a status or a photo and then checking obsessively to see if anyone left a comment.
I don't know exactly what if is but it's NEGATIVE!!!!!! It is a time suck and I need all the time I can get to be with my precious family.
It's also a lie. I feel like "some" people post all kinds of stuff that isn't even real just to make their lives seem fantabulous and you know what I'm just not interested in the lie.
Not to mention I cannot stand the incessant posting about politics. I now where I stand and I really don't care to here 5000 other people's opinions every 4 seconds.
Go vote and stop preaching about it!
So I did away with it again.
I still have my Bouffe e Bambini page linked to my husband's account so I can post there but my account is gone!
THANK GOODNESS!!! BYE BYE FACEBOOK NEGATIVITY!
Popcorn eating monsters for a wrap up!!!!!
A few weeks a go I was sick as a dog with morning sickness ALL.DAY.LONG and my hubby was gone working but I knew I had to make dinner and i was DREADING it.
I glanced in the fridge and saw some random ingredients and came up with this giant muffin tin recipe.
Don't they look awesome?
You will need:
*1 giant muffin tin
*6 corn tortillas
*about 1/2 cup of canola oil
*1/2 a block of cheddar
*1/2 pound of shredded beef or pork or ground turkey or chicken or beans
*1 medium russet potato finely grated (this may be omitted but it adds a little extra moisture and flavor that I think is wonderful)
*Garnish (lettuce, red onion, tomato, avocado, hot sauce)
Heat over to 350
1. Place meat in a frying pan with the shredded potato and start cooking, I used cumin, cayenne pepper, salt and regular pepper to season
2.Then grate your cheese.
3.Now brush both sides of your tortillas with oil and place In muffin cups. They will probably break a little, no worries, they will harden and hold their shape when finished.
4.Now fill each cup with just a little sprinkle of cheese for the bottom layer.
5.When the meat is cooked place a generous helping into each cup on top of the cheese
6.Now use the rest of the cheese to top them.
7.No pop them in the oven for 25 -30 min at 350 or until slightly brown and crispy.
8.Serve with whatever garnish you like.
DEFINITE crowd pleaser. My kids ate it and my husband who wasn't even hungry ended up eating 2 they were so good and it was SO easy.
