25 Weeks, take 2

I'll be 25 weeks pregnant tomorrow.  For the most part, I'm feeling great.  I'm not nauseous anymore, I look pregnant and not just chunky anymore (yay!), and Little Miss is kicking around like crazy.  As I near the third trimester, my energy level is going down, and I'm taking more and more naps with C.

We had an ultrasound yesterday.  Little Miss looks awesome, her heart, organs, and bones are developing beautifully, she's definitely a girl, and she's already 1 lb 13 oz!!  She's measuring about a week ahead, which would give us a 12/25 due date.  I'm sticking with 12/31; I figure the later I'm "due", the less anxious I'll be during those last few weeks, lol.  I fully expect to be pregnant into 2012, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Here's a belly pic taken on my phone in the bathroom mirror, hence the crappy quality:

And here are some ultrasound pics!

Mint Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats

My husband isn't big on cakes, cookies, or brownies (a blessing and a curse because that means more for me!!).  His favorite desserts are Rice Krispie Treats and mint chocolate chip ice cream.  One day I thought, "hey, why don't I put those together?" and this dessert was born.  It's outrageously simple and has endless options, all you have to do is pick a flavor!!

This recipe is mostly off the Rice Krispie Treat box, with a couple of modifications.  The best part is, it's free from the top 8 allergens, and gluten!!  That makes it an awesome potluck dish because almost everyone can enjoy it :)
