7. Brownies
8. Cucumber Slices and Hummus
9. Fruit (especially apples)

Yay! Going public in the interest of public service?

More in the interest of being able to blog again without feeling like I'm keeping a giant secret that has radically affected my eating! ;)

squeee! I found out I was preg in the start of may 2005, and I think I was able to not mention it on the blog until that July.

btw, when you said you were dealing with a medical condition that you had been hinting about...were you refering to the subtle placement of the tag "pregnant" on posts going back months? Not that I noticed before today.

Awesome! Congrats! So excited for you two.

in celebration of your joyous news, try luna bars too, they taste better then cliff bars (dulce de leche!)

Well, hello. I meant to respond to these comments long ago. Pregnancy has really slowed my blogging down, but not for any good reason.

Betsy, I cheated and went back in and dropped those tags in, though I did do it before officially letting the cat out of the bag. They just weren't there all along. ;)

Thanks, Ms. Moxie -- and my friend Mechanic, I'll look for that Luna Bar flavor!
