Little Baby Nutt:)

Well we had our first appointment today:) The baby's heartbeat was 160+ and everything is looking great. It was a different pace then Luckas, He was all over the place around when we got his first ultra-sound. This baby she/he was so calm just chilled in the same spot the whole time. Stretched out her/his legs and arms, she/he is going to have long legs like Luckas did. I hope my ribs don't take a beating again this time around. She/He was putting their arms in front of their face trying to be shy in front of the camera! I also got some AWESOME news that my best friend back home just found out today that she was off on her due date...she is due JULY 12TH, 2011..just like me:) Best friends going through pregnancy at the same time...we are pretty excited even though we are over 1,000 miles away from each other! We are going in January to find out the sex of the baby since February is going to be a VERY short month for us with all 3 of our birthdays, our wedding anni and then Lucke's birthday party. We can't wait to find out:):) My motherly feelings are saying GIRL...but I would be very happy to have another boy!!

Puppy Chow:)

It really isn't DOG FOOD, I really don't know how this amazing, yummy little snack got the name. But trust me its one of my all time favorites:)

Puppy Chow

What you will need:

1 cup peanut butter
2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
1 box of Chex cereal (any flavor if you want)
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar or as needed


1. Combine peanut butter and chocolate chips over the stove top so I can mix them together and make sure the chocolate doesn't dry out! PLEASE DON'T USE BUTTER..many recipes tell you to use it but when you put butter and chocolate/peanut butter together it doesn't work. You will have to start all over!

2. Stir to blend all ingredients thoroughly. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Stir well.

3. Place the 1 box of Crispix cereal in a very large bowl.

4. Pour the peanut butter-chocolate mixture over the cereal and toss evenly, making sure all the cereal gets a good covering.

5. Coat with powdered sugar, sprinkling evenly over the cereal and tossing as you sprinkle to cover each piece well.

Now you have some Puppy Chow:)Enjoy!!!
