I love being a princess...

If you've ever watched the children's show, "The Backyardigans", you might be familiar with this addictive song that they sing - "I love being a princess". The whole episode tries to teach kids about how not to be selfish, but all I took away from it was this ridiculous song. It kinda applies to my life in the past 3 weeks.

The last 3 weekends, Travis has taken me out for a steak dinner. In our budget - NO. A MUST HAVE- YES! The only defense I have is that I CRAVE the steak. I love the steak. I want to eat steak for dinner every night. Getting it once a week is a compromise, because I want it so badly. More than anything, I crave the marinade and "blood" of it - yes, I know it's odd.

The thing I feel guilty about is that Travis has been so amazingly great about letting me indulge in this craving. We've driven to Asheville twice JUST to eat at Outback (shout out to Outback, your steak is amazing).

There is no justification for this behavior. I don't think that I'm always a spoiled person (or is that something that only a spoiled girl would say?). All I can say is this: I need it and my husband will give it to me. Fine - I love being a princess.

I think I read somewhere that a high protein diet early in pregnancy makes smart kids....really

Atta boy, Travis. :) There are many, many times a wife and mother can and should be treated like a princess. Being pregnant while caring for a toddler would rank really high on the list! Enjoy every second and be thankful for such a sweet husband :)

Hmmm... maybe another little boy??? Both of my boy pregnancies have been marked with a high protein craving. Anyways, it IS very special to be treated as Travis is treating you. I love to hear it!

Oops... you could probably guess that this is Anneke, not Andrew :)

Travis swears it's a boy...so we'll see! We'd be perfectly happy with either. I have convinced him to buy a grill and I'm trying to find some secret recipes for the Outback steak!
