Picture-ific

Sometimes I worry that I don’t have enough pictures here to keep your average blog reader entertained. After all, I am no budding photographer of any type or kind. I am a writer. But then I think about how I enjoy seeing pictures on others’ sites and wonder if that is what keeps me enthralled–that I can see those writers in my head. But shouldn’t my writing be enough?
So anyway, here’s a lovely picture post for you, just in case.
Tonight I made the Southwestern Pasta Bake from Rachael Rays 365 cookbook. It was OK, nothing too special, but it did look pretty. The chicken was very tasty but I feel like my cheese sauces are always lacking. Not enough cheese? Not enough something else? This one even had cilantro and parsley in it (albeit, I used dried). Still missing something. But I did think it turned out really nice-looking! And that’s something. If you want to see some real food pictures, go to Pioneer Woman Cooks or Pinch My Salt.
Today at work we had a shower for a co-worker. It made me a little nervous because all she got was clothes and blankets. And those are super cute…but you do need other things for a baby. And since we are not rolling in dough, it would be helpful if I got those things at my showers. But either way I will be super appreciative, of course. And darn, Libbie will be dressed well even if we don’t have a stroller! Anyway, my dear friend and co-worker Carolyn bought Libbie a present too while she was shopping for our other co-worker. Isn’t it precious???

And lastly…here’s my baby belly from last weekend in Ohio. From left to right is my cousin’s wife Julie with their six-week-old son Aaron, my cousin Tricia who was 32 weeks preggo, and me. The green shirt perhaps makes me look most pregnant of all my clothes, and it’s so cute!


I also love Evie’s site for great photography, and these recent posts from Amy Beth are absolutely insanely gorgeous. So there you go. Don’t come here expecting great pictures. But I will try to post some from time to time if it makes me relate to my “public.” Heh.

    I got your comment about my quiet time post, but I can’t email you back because my silly email still isn’t letting me send anything out. But I totally feel you and agree with everything you said. 🙂

    Can’t wait to see more baby gifts!!!

  2. You’re so kind to mention me!! Thank you for thinking of me that way. 🙂

    Pinch My Salt totally rocks. Have you checked out her photostream on flickr? Amazing.

    By the way, you are just the cutest mommy-to-be!! That outfit for your daughter is SO adorable. *sigh* I love baby clothes…they’re so darn cute.

  3. Hey! I bought that shirt! Hehe. You are a cute preggie. I love you even though you gave me this dumb monstrous cold 🙂 Hope Libbie’s not making you TOO tired.
