I guess this is my official coming out to the world, except I’m not sure who I’m coming out to.  My mom already basically told my family that I’m pregnant…and most of our friends already know…and who else reads my crap?  Anyways, if you didn’t already know, and keep thinking “wow…catie has gained almost all […]

I guess this is my official coming out to the world, except I’m not sure who I’m coming out to.  My mom already basically told my family that I’m pregnant…and most of our friends already know…and who else reads my crap?  Anyways, if you didn’t already know, and keep thinking “wow…catie has gained almost all the weight back that she lost…she doesn’t look smokin’ hot & fit anymore”  Eh..well, good news, I’m not bloated, I’m pregnant!  Yiiipppeee!!

 

So far, so good.  The first couple of weeks I might have uttered these words “Mom!…if this is what it’s like to be pregnant, I’m not having anymore children”.  This…coming from the mouth of a lady who once wanted 6 kids.  Fortunately, everyone is right, your mind has a funny way of making you forget how horrible it once was, and it does get better.  Although I still have days of nausea and am dead asleep by 9:00pm (on a good night) and am almost constantly eating, I’m not so miserable anymore and have gone back to wanting 6 kids.

 

I found out this week that Panera is NOT pregnant lady friendly…unless your just going to eat their french onion soup, which is only mediocre anyways.  Word on the street is that you should avoid cold lunch meat & the sorts…something about it carrying listeria.

 

Imagine my excitement last week when the ladies at work decided we’d go to Panera for lunch.  I’ve been DYING for the Bacon Turkey Bravo sandwich – my ULTIMATE favorite sandwich.  *mouth waters*.

 

This is my conversation w/ the Shift Manager…his name was probably Dudley or something.

C: Hi!  I’d like the Bacon Turkey Bravo.  Is it possible to heat up my turkey?

SM: *talking really slow* Uhh…well…technically…i guess we could do it..but..its not really easy

C: Hmm…well…see this pudge right here, that’s my unborn child, and cold lunch meat might kill it.

SM: yeah, see, we don’t have a microwave, except for that one over there, by the coffee out on the floor.

C: oh, well great!  Can you just heat my turkey for 30 seconds in that & then slap it on my sandwich?”

SM: ummm…

C: Fine!  I’ll take the Smokehouse Turkey Panini…make sure my meat’s warm

C: Oh…with a baguette…its a delicious vehicle to get butter in my mouth.

SM: That will be $7.46.

 

*sighs*  It maybe wasn’t THAT dramatic…

 

Anyways, for future reference Atlanta Bread Company heats meat, they have several microwave’s.  Their sandwich’s are not as delicious, but at least you won’t get Listeria.  That’s my PSA of the month.  *pats self on back*

A week long vacation..and then some

August 21st, 2011

I’ve been in WI the past 9 days.  Its been busy!!!  I flew into Minneapolis last Friday.  Mom & Abby picked me up, what a surprise (Abby…not mom picking me up 🙂  Dad was sick, but still requested we stop in Baldwin to find some fireworks.  That’s hard business….I need a display of what they […]

I’ve been in WI the past 9 days.  Its been busy!!!  I flew into Minneapolis last Friday.  Mom & Abby picked me up, what a surprise (Abby…not mom picking me up 🙂  Dad was sick, but still requested we stop in Baldwin to find some fireworks.  That’s hard business….I need a display of what they do, not a description “Flies in air, shoots yellow sparks”.  Needless to say, I don’t think Mom, Abby, or I picked out anything great.

 

Saturday was the big Hintzman Family Reunion.  The day started off w/ the 9 hole golf tournament in Colfax and ended with a picnic at the farm, complete with bounce house.  It was great to catch up with family, to bad I only see them once every 2 years (when I go back!).

 

Monday I drove to Waterloo, IA with mom.  We went to visit my Uncle Earl & Aunt Lucille.  We had a blast – even Doug, Jessica, Craig, & Will showed up to say hi!  Special ladies we are.  After spending 8 hours in the car with me in 1 day, I’m sure mom is sick of me babbling.  I think I did my job though – keep her awake while driving.  We’re glad to see you feeling better Uncle Earl!!

 

On Wednesday, my mom & I went to see “The Help”.  And Oh.My.Gosh.  It’s as good as the book.  I must see it again and read the again.  I think it would be a good movie if you haven’t read the book, but having read the book, I think made it that much better.

 

Thursday-Today (Sunday) were spent at the lake house.  Everyone came – Sarah, Chuck, Abby, Gabe, B, Dave, Ally, Mom & Dad.  It was awesome to relax & hang out.  We did some tubing, slip’n’sliding, lounging, fishing, smore eating, golfing, & poor firework watching.

 

All in all, it was a great 9 days.  I got to spend a lot of time with family, relax, & fit 3 rounds of golf in.

 

Now Matt & I sit in Milwaukee & wait for our plane home to Lucy B Williams.  She’s probably having so much fun at Mary’s that she’s forgotten about us.  She’ll be greatly disappointed when we go pick her up tomorrow.

I admit, I have no shame…nor should you

August 5th, 2011

Most people who know me will say I have no shame.  They are probably right.  I’m that lady that struts her stuff naked in the women’s locker room.  What you see, is generally what you get. That’s why I’m admitting this – I watched the season premiere of Jersey Shore last night.  Yes, you heard […]

That’s why I’m admitting this – I watched the season premiere of Jersey Shore last night.  Yes, you heard me right (and I know YOU watched it last night too, you’re just to chicken to fess up).  Horrendous TV is my guilty pleasure.  I love it.  I’m ADDICTED…i mean ADDICTED to 16 & pregnant & Teen Mom.  So, if you ever want to discuss that drama, feel free…I’ll talk to you for hours about it, with passion.

I try to save all of these horrible wonderful TV shows for night’s he’s at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), but sometimes he doesn’t go, and he’s forced to watch what I want.  Tuesday & Thursday evenings between the hours of 6:30pm-9:30pm I rule what is on the TV.

C to M: Did you know Jersey Shore is on tonight?

M: Seriously Babes?

C: Yeah..I think it starts at 8

M: Seriously (insert disgusted look).

C: Yeah..I’m watching it.

M: I hate watching this crap, these people are so dumb, its painful.  Everytime they are on, it’s like they have never set foot outside their house & have no idea about the world.

C: I know…its entertaining.

M: Really?

He reluctantly watched it, with commentary.  And his commentary is totally legit, these people are complete morons…and yet, they captivate me.

Teen Mom is a whole other Oprah.  I literally look forward to Tuesday PM when its on.  I ALWAYS DVR it, but that’s never required because I’m always home to watch it.  Most arguments in our marriage come from Tuesday nights – they usually turn out like this

*M walks in the door from BJJ*

M: Hey Babe

*C ignores*

M: Hi Lucy B!

C: SHHHH!!!

M: Can’t you pause it & say hello?

*C ignores & turns up volume*

C: Seriously, can you pet the dog quieter?  Macy & Kyle are totally breaking up right now.

*C turns up volume more*

M: Really Catie????

*C gives stink eye*

 

I know its really pathetic, I’m COMPLETELY aware.  But I love watching mindless trashy TV..I just do.  I can’t help myself.
