We’re Pregnant… FINALLY!

On January 22, 2018, I took what felt like my 100th pregnancy test.  Expecting it to be negative, I put it on the counter and jumped in the shower.  I got out of the shower and glanced at the test.  It looked different than the usual, there were two pink lines instead of 1!!!  I had to get out the instructions just to make sure I was reading it correctly.  IT WAS POSITIVE!

Honestly, I couldn’t believe my eyes.  Off to Target I went to buy 5 more tests and they were all POSITIVE!  I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to tell my husband.  When he finally got home, I had the pregnancy tests set out for him to see.  We were both in shock and extreme excitement; we finally had a baby on the way!

 

Christmas Tree Cheese Board

This Christmas Tree Cheese Board is super easy to make and fun to look at (and then eat)!

Ingredients
3 Types of Cheese; 2 of each kind **I used Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, and Mozzarella
1 Package of Green Grapes
1 Package of Red Grapes
1 Star for the Topper **Edible or not
1 Box of Star or Snowflake Crackers **I used Ritz Snowflake Crackers

Let’s Create!
1. Rinse off grapes and thoroughly dry
2. Cut Cheese into cubes
3. Cut out base of Tree
4. Start Layering – there isn’t a specific science to this. You just want each layer or every other layer (depending on how big you are making it) to become smaller in size to give the illusion of a tree.
5. Place Star on top of tree
**Optional – place crackers around dish or serve separately.
