today I wanted to share with you an easy fruit dip recipe. it's perfect for parties, summer picnics or late night cravings :) I love it with strawberries but it also works great with pretzels, graham, crackers, etc. it's pretty thick so it works better with larger fruits or you could skewer blueberries and raspberries for convenience.

what you'll need
  • 4 oz softened cream cheese (use the 1/3 less fat version-you won't notice the difference)
  • 1/2 cup regular sugar
  • 1/2 tub whipped cream
what to do
  1. mix the sugar and cream cheese together with a blender
  2. fold in the whipped cream with a spatula
  3. transfer to pretty bowl and enjoy
I know it's a pretty complicated recipe and requires some sophisticated ingredients but do give it a try ;) I know you'll love it!

I cannot sleep even though I have had an exhausting day doing nothing except being 35 weeks pregnant. or is it 34 weeks? I never know unless BabyCenter tells me :) I do know my baby is currently the size of a cantaloupe and when I read that I said "sounds about right" it does feel like I have a medium sized melon strapped to me 24/7. I've contemplated actually doing this to my hubby so he knows how I feel. just kidding...sort of.

nighttime is when I get the strongest cravings. luckily they are too random for me to actually go and get like (currently) a mocha with whipped cream...don't have the ingredients. but sometimes they are totally doable and you'll find me in the kitchen at 12:30 am making microwave-able chocolate chip cookies for 1 (ahem...happened last week...3 times)

I go to the bathroom about 2 times a night and cannot go back to sleep unless I check on my sleeping princess J in her crib. her little booty is always up in the air. how is that comfortable? note to self: must try when done being preggers.

speaking of bathroom visit...2 sips of something and I feel like my bladder is about to burst. I miss it functioning normally :( oh the things you take for granted your rings fitting your fingers...

dippin' dots are everytime I eat some I say to myself (and surrounding strangers) "I wish I invented these" I also say that about Solo brand cups, lids. Seriously, those suckers are used in every Starbucks and every other fine establishment with to-go liquid options.

I love aquariums.
