This One Goes Out to my Girl Paula Dean

This morning was a rough one, nausea-wise.  My first mistake was brushing my tongue too far back while hurriedly trying to get ready for work.  I hadn't eaten breakfast yet, thankfully, because I knew my stomach wouldn't support it, so there wasn't anything to come up. The 'hurlie swirlies' got worse on the drive to work, though, and it was then and there I decided I needed some grease - good old-fashioned grease.  Originally hailing from Southern Indiana, I have a serious love of grits.  Give me a plate of cheesy grits* and I will make out with you on the spot .

Upon getting to work, I grabbed my friend Tiffany and we walked over to the House Office Building "HOB" cafe so I could load up on grits (with lots of butter and salt!), bacon, and cheesy scrambled eggs.  On the way there, I told her that I needed grits, STAT!  And then I said "There's nothing grits can't fix!"  And that, my dear friends, just might need to go on my tombstone someday.  ;o)

*Mmmm...cheesy grits.  That reminds me of the one of the best meals I ever had when I was in New Orleans for a bachelorette weekend (hi, Jilly - love you!) in 2008...NOLA - one of Emeril Lagasse's restaurants - is the place where dreams are perfectly prepared, folks.


  1. LOL!!!!! I swear, a book should be written from all of your crazy quotes and stories! :o)

  2. Soo...did it stay down??!! :-) Hopefully it did!

  3. Haha! I know, Tiff, you are so right!

    Yes, it did stay down, Kelly! Soooo glad. How tragic it would be to lose grits! ;o)

  4. Oh man - morning tooth-brushing is like my arch nemesis. I had a dentist appointment a couple weeks ago and the gal was all, " have some tartar on your back teeth, which is strange because you usually take such good care of your teeth" - but she understood when I explained it was the baby's fault, lol. I guess careful brushing went out the window for a while :)

  5. I LOVE NOLA! They have a dessert called the Buzz Bomb that is heaven on Earth! Not to mention the Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes. But I shouldn't be allowed to mention food with alcohol in it on your pregnancy blog, I suppose ;-). Seriously, the next time I go to N.O. will be specifically to go back to NOLA. <3 <3 <3

    Hope you are feeling better this afternoon!

  6. I should've been born in the South because I LOVE me some grits!

    Hopefully Chickpea will too :)

  7. Amy, I just caught up on all of your posts. These are great! You are quite the writer. I agree with Shareece - I see a book in your future.

  8. Hi! Just reading this now. That was a GREAT meal and so hilarious since we were all dressed up in our bachelorette gear. I still have those penis ears in my closet. :)


Please leave a comment! It will be fun for Tate to look back on some day... :o)
