Guess what….

Feeling a little bit more.. hungrier, fuller, bigger, tired, happier these days….







It can only mean one thing!! Little baby Hibbs is on his/her way!

My husband and I are sooo excited and thrilled to say that we got to hear our precious little (plum size- to be exact) baby’s heart beat today! It was the most unreal experience, I gave out a little laugh and cry all at the same time! The joy that we’re experiencing can only be a gift from God! We’re so blessed and thrilled to meet our baby on April 15th 2013!

Let the fun begin!

Thank you Melissa Skoda for capturing such a precious photo!

Fall & Pumpkin Recipes

Just the other day I posted some delicious fall comfort food on my instagram feed- @doctorscloset. I’m sorry if I made any of you drool, but these two dishes were definitely drool worthy, and too good not to share! Two words: FALL and PUMPKIN! Don’t they just make you excited and want to bake or cook something? That was exactly how I was feeling after finding these yummy and oh so healthy recipes! All Sunday I was in the kitchen and boy is my tummy thankful!

Many of you asked for the recipes… so here they are! I changed a few of the ingredients to personal taste; which I’ve listed below. For the full recipe and step buy step instructions visit the blog links I’ve included under each photo!

Hope you’re enjoying fall as much as our tummies are!
