I had to post...


I just had to post about these little morsels! Last Friday night we ate dinner at home...okay, that sounds weird...You see, every single Friday we eat dinner out. I work until 5 on Friday's, and the last thing that I want to do is get home at 5:30 and start cooking a meal. We are well, to put it lightly, 80-year olds! We like to eat at 5:00 ON THE DOT every night. My Grandma Beverly will be so proud when she reads that! I partly think it is because of her that I started doing this with my family! That, and we really like food and hate waiting any longer than necessary to eat. ANYWAY...last Friday we didn't eat out because we had just gotten back from our Arizona Vacation on Tuesday, and frankly, we were all restraunted-out! So, after a quick dinner at home, we headed out shopping...okay, by shopping I mean walking in and out of stores and buying nothing! After "shopping" we wanted to get a snack. Since being here in Omaha, we have had NO LUCK with finding a snack spot that we love. In Billings it is Dairy Queen; Cody gets a Grape Freeze EVERY time, and I get, well, usually a cherry dipped cone, unless I feel like really going for some major calories and getting a Blizzard. In Provo, we liked to hit up Jamba Juice if we were feeling fruity, Sweet Tooth Fairy for a way-too-caloric cupcake, or the delicious Red Mango. Red Mango is simply, to DIE FOR. It is a ice cream/frozen yogurt type dessert with 60 calories in a CUP! Yes, a CUP! O man, it is good. You can add all sorts of toppings to it...I, of course, always threw some chocolate something on there to make it more fatening, but Cody would always get MOCHI. Mochi is "a Japanese rice cake made of glutonious rice pounded into a paste and rolled into shape", aka, a DELISH gumdrop! He loved mochi so much that for his birthday I bought him an entire pack of it...sick, seriously, sick:)
Whew, back to the Friday night snack...we headed to Whole Foods to see if we could find something, and look what we found:
YES...Mochi! IN NEBRASKA! Not just any Mochi, Mochi filled with ice cream in all sorts of flavors. Our flavor of choice was Mango...although I know that we will soon go back to experience the others! This treat was a little piece of heaven. Too bad we have to go to a really expensive grocery store to get it! ($9 for 8 little morsels!)

I also thought I would post the 24 and 25 week preggo pics! I usually only take them every 4 weeks but wanted to prove that we went on a vaca with Baby W!

Well I think that Mochi sounds a little weird, but anything that has ice cream in it I'm usually up for!
We are early dinner eaters too, 5:30 usually! Grandma will be proud!

I love (by love, I mean despise) the fact that I'm 6 weeks less pregnant than you, yet just as big! :)
If you have Whole Foods nearby, I can't feel sorry for you. We're in a town where the only place to go looking for anything gourmet or any treats is Walmart. =p I miss P-town!
