Jitters.

I’m pretty nervous today.

Not for me, but for my really close friend.

Don’t worry, it’s an excited kind of nervous.

I am going to her first ultrasound…my first time being at one as well.

This is all too real for me…I’m pretty sure we were just freshmen in high school the other day, having sleepovers, going to the movies, and enduring our first heartbreak.

Now, my b.f.f. is married and having her first child.

Thank goodness we are so different…I basically live out the parts of my life that I haven’t experienced yet…through her.

So, ya know, I’m going to spoil that child rotten.

I’m already a godmother and cannot wait to have another godchild.

I’ll be that godmother that babysits the kid for hours…but it really won’t be babysitting at all because we will have tea parties, play hide and go seek, have dance parties, and I will read him/her some of my favorite childhood books.

Then, I will feed him/her a couple of homemade cupcakes for dinner so he/she will be on a sugar high by the time the parents arrive.

Just kidding.

But I will bake him/her sweets…all the time.

I actually can’t wait to have kids, just so that I can make them lunches.

My mom ALWAYS made my lunch for me at school.

I loved finding a good pb & j with a fruit roll-up and a hostess cake in my pink pretty pretty princess lunchbox.

Because I don’t have children…I will just make you some snack muffins for your lunch.

    Welp, looks like I know what I’m going home to make tonight! I have one lone sad banana and a bag full of chia seeds I’m trying to find uses for and these muffins look great!

      Pretty good! I probably should have baked mine longer (I used a small duck egg instead) but the flavor is great and they came together very easily.
