I want that!! (cravings)

The cravings are ever increasing.

I see or think about a food, and I have to have it.  And it's not one particular thing; it's a lot of different things.  And it's not like I have to have it RIGHT THAT SECOND.  I can wait.  But I have to have it eventually. 

Or I get crabby.

And then when I have it, I'm fine.  And typically don't need that particular food again (unless it's uber tasty).  And I don't need to have a lot of it.  Just a smidge and I'm golden.

Here are some samples of foods that I've either thought about or have seen that I've had to make sure was on my shopping list:

Strawberry Smoothie.  Now, don't be knocking my "easy way out" on this.  I did, in fact, purchase this Dole product.  And it was awesome.  And I will be purchasing more. 

Not just any salt & vinegar chips.  They have to be CAPE COD brand. 
They are the best.  Cannot be beat.

Whole grain toast with raspberry jam.  Not jelly.  Jam.  I had this for breakfast this morning.  My husband, Mr. Fried Eggs and potatoes, was not a fan of his plate of toast.  I, however, was a happy girl.

Pioneer Woman's flat apple pie.  She made this on her show on Saturday and I will be making this today.  I'll let you know how it is.
Here's the recipe in case you'd like to take a looky.
Holy crap, I really wish I didn't have to make it.  I want it NOW!

Oh, and I do have one more photo to share.  It's of the little monkey growing in my belly!! This was from the last ultrasound (at 10 weeks):
