Missing Out

Confession: I feel like I've been missing out a little on the new mum scene. You know, meeting other mums over coffee, play dates, baby yoga, swim, etc.

However, while I was in Portland, I overheard two new mums gossiping over coffee...

"You know Lisa just shows up like she rolled out of bed. I mean, what's with her hair? I know she has three kids, but she should really have her act together by now."

I couldn't stop listening. Neither could Hubs. Seriously. We didn't say two words to each other for about a half hour as the ladies dished on their *best friends.*

I came away feeling pretty happy about my little playgroup in Dalian.


After nearly three weeks of eating everything I've craved over the past six months, I think I've gained about 20 lbs.


The only thing left on my list of things to consume is a hostess fruit pie. Lemon if possible. If there is no lemon, I will settle for Apple.

I can't really explain my Hostess fruit pie craving. All I know is that I get it every year.

There's just something about that pie shell - all glazed with sugar. The way it cracks open. The way the gooey inside pulls apart (I'm drooling just thinking about it).
