Lots of Updates, Part 1

So quite a bit has happened over the last few days.

First and foremost...

Little Kicks!

Points to you if you got the Seinfeld reference! If not, that's okay.

Jennifer started feeling the baby move this week!! I definitely still have those "this isn't really happening" moments, and it doesn't help that she can feel things that I can't. It's not fair! But I know soon enough I'll be able to feel them too. It's really pretty awesome to see her face light up because she just felt the baby move. And it has definitely helped reassure me that things are progressing as they should be!

Pregnancy Cravings

While we're talking about my little lady, she's been having lots of sweet cravings lately... (could that mean we're having a girl??)

Last week she was really craving chocolate chip cookies, so I made some for her.

And I recently made a trip to the store for those things she had been craving, but didn't need to have immediately:

To be fair, she hasn't just been on a sweet kick. One day, all she wanted to eat were Pop Chips, so I made a run for those, too.

But she's not the only one getting treats...

New Beer!

I recently tried a new beer I had never seen before: Dogfish Head's Theobroma (which translates to "food of the gods").

The description reads:
Ale brewed with natural flavors (honey, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder, ancho chilies, & ground annatto)
It sounded like an interesting combination, so I definitely had to try it!

It poured a lot lighter than I expected for a "chocolate" beer.

By far, this was the most unique beer I've ever tried. It's from their Ancient Ales series, where they study ancient pots to find out what they contained and use that to put together a best guess as to what ancient cultures used to drink.

It's really pretty interesting, although I'm not sure I'd like to try any beer uncarbonated or warm...

I didn't get much of a chocolate flavor at first with this one, but I definitely got the sweetness from the honey. I'm really bad about describing what it was like... all I can really say is it was different.

The most interesting part of this one was the finish. It really was almost like drinking a chili pepper. It wasn't spicy, but after taking a drink my throat felt a little tingly.

As I got further into the beer, the chocolate started to come through, but I would have liked it more if it was more pronounced.


That's it for now. Check back soon for part 2!
