curly fry, that's me

i don't remember being extremely emotional when i was pregnant with brennan.
or particularly intense about having to have a specific food at odd times of the day.
let me paint a picture for you tonight.
watching america's got talent
(aris's fiance is in jersey boys, performed on the show tonight).
arby's commercial came on during the break.
curly fries.
the ones that are the really tight ringlets.
return home with curly fries.
play taped oprah season premier.
(no, we don't have tevo. we still use a vhs tape and record our shows.)
so oprah.
22 yr old girl, oprah makes her wish to meet josh groban come true.
(well, she really wanted him for a prom date back in high school).
in comes josh.
girl starts crying.
jumping up and down.
hands over the mouth hysterical.
and there i was.
we're talking tears "a droppin" people.
with arby's curly fries on my lap.
pregnancy at its finest.
oh dear.
i'm there.
i'm really there.
i was the epitome of the pregnant woman that "they" make fun of in commercials.
it was hilarious.
so glad sean was watching espn in the back.
maybe he won't check the blog today...and we can keep this just between us.

Isn't that the strangest feeling? To be crying about something you absolutely know is ridiculous? But it's also kind of a good feeling, too. Because you're pregnant. And you're so darned happy.

That is pretty funny. I am not even pregnant and I really want Arby's curly fries now!

I don't remember having any cravings or being emotional when I was prego. I think I was too young and not really taking being prego all in.

Oooh, curly fries! I know what I am having for lunch now. Thanks!

Music always makes me cry... I'll be driving down the road and some song I have heard a million times will come on and I think, "Oh how sad!" and soon I have those tears falling... Pretty interesting!!
PS My "Baby" loves potatoes... any way, any shape, any time... and I don't really like potatoes! And french fries are a fav! But not too many... :)
