Hi! My Name is Cliché.

That jar was full this morning. Oh, yes I did.

I'll call you Cliche, Jr. I kept a jar of pickles in the fridge at work during my entire second pregnancy. Something about the salt...

Yeah, I've done this too.

Although I wasn't pregnant at the time.

warning: this will either make your tummy turn or will send you running to the fridge. My last pregnancy I was really, really sick. The very first day food sounded tolerable after months of being sick, I got this ridiculous craving for s'mores. I microwaved marshmallows and a chocolate bar, dipped Caleb's graham crackers in it. Sounds good, right? Well it was fine until I decided I needed a pickle. Right then. But wasn't ready to back away from the s'mores dip. I sat there with a pickle in one hand and a s'more in the other. I had died and gone to heaven.

Oh and those TJ's organic Koshers are da bomb.

Yum. I used to mix pickles with cottage cheese... I never thought it was a pregnancy thing until I wasn't pregnant any more and didn't want to eat pickles and cottage cheese on a daily basis.

...and the sad thing is that i do that and i've yet to ever be pregnant. i can only imagine how strange my food desires will be then.

now i want to go downstairs and have a clausen's.

Sorry, but that's cute.
Mine was peanut butter. I couldn't get enough!!! I would just sit with the jar and scoop it into my mouth. Now, it has pretty much zero appeal.

Take it up a notch and dip 'em in peanut butter.

Where's the mashed potatoes that go with those?

BTW, you probably already know this, but in the 3rd trimester, those little buggers can be the cause of an awful lot of swelling. I learned the hard way.

Um... I can't buy pickles, because I do that every time. I've never been pregnant, either... super.

I made pickles early in my pregnancy. By the time they were ready to eat, I couldn't stomach them and could barely stand to see my husband eat them. I think it had something to do with being uncomfortable in a hot kitchen and remembering that when I would see them. Now, though, they are fine and my nearly one-year-old (!!!) daughter loves them, too.

mmm I love them too! Yummy! BTW` I know this isnt the place to post it.... but those 2 girls over on that other GGC do not stop bashing you? Why? I mean they really need to get over the name change. Keep being wonderful! xoxooxoxoxoooo


Ohhhh, yes. I've been there. And then I moved on to the sauerkraut...

my ankles are swelling just LOOKING at this.

Oh. Ick. Too sour for my tummy. For me this week, it's ice cream with chocolate sauce and espresso powder, pounded together into a milkshakey blend. Yum.

Thank God you left a picture that is actually obtainable! Pickles sound perfect! Someone suggested food the other day in conversation that is impossible to get unless I have my Southern relatives ship it to me. Jerks!

I'm off to Trader Joe's!

Just finished off half a sandwich with no less than 10 pickles on it. Something about the salty crunch goes so well with pregnancy.


this made me cry from missing you
