Making a List, Checking it Twice

I'm making my dessert list. These are my top dessert choices for when Griffin is born. It's been 30-some-odd weeks and counting* since I've had more than a bite of some sweet confections thanks to gestational diabetes. And I'm getting quite excited about the idea of eating dessert again very soon.

Not in any particular order...
Chocolate chip cookies from Panera Bread, with an I.C. Mocha to wash it down!
Pretty much any dessert from Litton's, especially a cream cheese brownie (but not cheesecake because it too closely resembles cheese and not dessert)
Chocolate cake from my mama
Baskin Robbins Pralines and Cream ice cream
Starbucks Caramel Macchiato (iced if it's a nice warm day)

*Baby update: Griffin is still doing great. I had my 37 week OB appt today. I'm now dilated 3.5-4 cm, 50% effaced, and having very regular contractions ranging from 7 to 15 minutes apart. We're just waiting for my contractions to be more like 5 minutes apart and more consistent, or for my water to break. If any of those two things happen it will be time to head to the hospital. I'm getting very excited! I can't wait to meet my newest little man and kiss his sweet cheeks.

Awwww - I am excited for you too! Can't wait to see who he looks like?

What? No tripe chocolate brownies topped with chocolate ice cream and fudge sauce? ;)

Emily said...

Heather, that would also work - with a tall chocolate milk shake!

How sweet. Where can I take you after Griffin's born for some "treats"? Plan it. You are deserving.
