Today I went to get my hairs did and my stylist tells me that one of his other clients asked the no-no question... "Do you think Mrs. is preggers?" My stylist asked the woman why she wanted to know and she said she just had a "feeling" that I was. This immediately starts the paranoid slew of thoughts that plague most people who make their living as a talking head... "Do I look heavier?" "Did me suit fit funny?" "Did I make a joke about having a baby?", etc. When my stylist pressed the woman about her "feeling," she replied, "She just has this glow going on." Huh. So this Sherlock watched one newscast, notices an extra gleam about me and logically deduces it must be a bun in the oven!
This is one of the many reasons I can't wait to be preggy. So then people can stop wondering already!

This makes me especially excited as I FINALLY get to use my red Martha dutch oven pot... a wedding gift from my gal pal Liz. ((((((SO EXCITED))))))
I searched the webz for a new recipe to culminate this momentous occasion and found this little ditty. I think I will also attempt these bad boys as the perfect side item. My husband doesn't know what's about to hit him this Football Sunday!

But I did my research ahead of time and showed up with my manila envelope containing my Marriage License, a copy of my marriage license, my birth certificate, old SS card and my driver's license. Plus a waiver to sign over my first born if need be.
Not necessary, as it turns out. I waited for half an hour listening to all sorts of sad tales of children facing jail time who needed a copy of their SSC; a new mother trying to get a card for her baby who was turned down because she had no proof that she was, in fact, the mother; a young dude trying to interview for summer jobs, who didn't realize he had a SSN or a SSC and was here to inquire. Awesome.
So, needless to say, my case was quick and painless. Showed my original Marriage License and turned over my old SSC. That's it. My new card will now read Mrs. Marshall. Weird!

I decided I needed to re-evaluate my interests and hobbies and find some creative outlet to amuse myself. Ta da! A blog offers just the right remedy: I still get to talk about our life and all the exciting (and mundane) tidbits taking place, but people can just stop reading if they become bored. Brilliant!
So happy reading and please excuse the first few messy posts and I learn to navigate.
