Baby Shower








Although it may be taboo or poor etiquette or whatever-Erik and I threw our own baby shower this weekend. Erik was able to showcase his talents and made the most delicious food. One of the (often overlooked) benefits of being married to chef. He made 36 hour roasted pork shoulder sandwiches with pickled jalapenos, baked beans, 5 cheese macaroni and cheese, cob salad, jalapeno mashed potatoes, and an assortment of artisnal cheeses and fresh salsa.

We received so many fantastic gifts, I finally feel relieved about being prepared for Maverik to come. I mean I'm still scared of course-but I feel better now that my house is filled with all the necessities. I feel so loved!

Food is Love,
Hilary

Hilary, you look absolutely gorgeous! You have that fabulous glow and you and your sweety both look ecstatic. I'm happy for the both of you, and wish you well :)

How cute you look! I'm so glad you've been writing again - I missed you!! Although I know your writing might slow down again once Maverik arrives on the scene...!! :o)
So happy for you guys. Enjoy this time!

Thanks ladies! I'm feeling great, I've really had a nice pregnancy. Just over 4 more weeks now! I hope I can continue to write here-but all I can promise that I'll be writing as much as I'm able to.

You look better at 8-9 months pregnant than I do unpregnant!
