My grocery list for tonight:
Just the basics. And yes, pickles have now become a staple in this pregnant lady’s home! I went through a jar of them in less than a week and can’t stand the thought of going another day without my pickles. This is the first of my regular cravings. I have had plenty of sporadic ones to be sure, and it is always whatever I don’t have in the house. I have craved everything from hummus and chocolate cake (NOT together!) to sandwiches from my favorite sub place or McDonald’s cheeseburgers (not a craving I typically give in to, mind you!).
I had been pretty good about being disciplined and not blowing off my dinner plans every night to satisfy my latest cravings, but the pickles are a completely different matter. In fact, I am heading out to Costco to buy pickles in bulk! Plus I need the milk and butter. And gas for my car.
After Costco, I plan to use my birthday gift and go spoil myself with a manicure and pedicure. This is one luxury I would indulge in more frequently than just my birthday if I could. Very few things are as relaxing as a good pedicure in the heated massage chair…oh I can’t wait!
For the rest of the weekend, I plan to sleep, eat pickles, clean my house, eat pickles, watch the Oscar’s awards, and yes, eat more pickles.
What are your weekend plans?
