Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 4/18/14

Print Post

Last week’s “big news” was about TV.  This week, though, I have some actual real big news… Matt and I are having a baby!  I’m just over 14 weeks along (holy cow does that sound far now) and the past 9 plus weeks of keeping this a secret were some of the longest weeks I can remember.  I’m so happy, though, and very excited to finally be able to share our news.  There is a lot to tell you about but I think I’ll leave that for another post.  Do pregnancy related posts interest you at all?

Pregnancy Announcement with Before and After Pics

Pregnancy Announcement with Before and After Pics

The 13-week photos are from last weekend, but I haven’t changed too much since then.  And in the spirit of oversharing, I swear that’s only four added pounds.

Other than that nothing else seems that eventful right now.  Things at Keep It Sweet Desserts were great for Passover.  I do have much to share on my plans going forward for my first “baby” as well.  Oh yeah, and it took us about one minute to get hooked on Breaking Bad.

Now for this week’s updates:

Order Matzo Crack for Passover!

Current seasonal specialsPumpkin Pie Coffee (on sale), Atlantic Blend Coffee, Cookie of the Month: Peppermint Patty Stuffed Triple Chocolate Cookies (almost gone!), Matzo Crack (almost gone!), Graduation Gift Basket
