taco bell? really??



Sometimes you just don't ask questions. When your body tells you that you need a 7-layer burrito from taco bell... a burrito you used to eat with your sister, Courtni, when you were little.. a burrito you haven't eaten in well over ten years... at a fast food restaurant that you haven't eaten at in years.. sometimes you just have to go with it. Don't ask.. just do it. And then sometimes you have to eat the entire thing.. no bites to spare with lots of mild sauce (which is the only thing you liked on the taco bell menu before today). When every morning you stand on the scale and the number you see is slightly smaller than the number you saw yesterday... which would normally be a good thing.. but not when you're trying to grow a little raspberry sized fetus inside you... yes I am pregnant!!! When that happens you sometimes have to go with the high calorie meal.. especially after weeks of barely even being able to stomach the thought of most foods. So, I google texted the nearest Taco Bell and drove straight there. And the whole drive there.. I wondered.. "Why is it that the thought of Taco Bell.. a place I normally won't go.. is making me happier than I have been in weeks?" I have so much to be extremely stoked about.. but nothing has made me this happy in the last few weeks. Something is wrong. But then I just told myself... you're pregnant.. you don't have to be normal. Pregnant women are not normal... anything but. And then, I am waiting in a line of cars that is easily 6 cars long.. and my feet are dancing on the floor, my fingers are tapping.. my head is bobbing and all I want to do is call everyone I know and tell them about the meal I am about to have. I am THAT happy to wait for my burrito. Normally I would NEVER wait in a fast food line.. not for fast food at least. OMG. But the whole wait.. I was soo excited to get my burrito that I was literally HAPPY to wait. I am not even happy to wait in a line for a purchase at Nordstrom.. or Space Mountain at Disneyland... but, today I will happily wait in a line for a 7-layer burrito from Taco Bell...

  1. congratulations! how exciting! How are far along are you? I am dying laughing though. I love the excitment you have a taco bell burritto. Taco bell also gives me that memory of my friends and I in middle school eating 2 bean and cheese burrittos. It had been since then that I ate one until my boys started liking taco bell, ever once in a while I will give in to taco bell.Hope you are feeling okay. Can't wait to stay updated on the little raspberry.(:

  2. You are so funny! Congratulations!!! It's so nice when any food starts to make you that happy when you've been feeling sick. I felt the same way about corn dogs. I am so excited for you guys! I hope everything goes well and you start feeling better soon!

  3. Is it bad that I crave plain Taco bell 99 cent bean and cheese burritos on a weekly basis? In the past month, I've probably eaten eight. Here's how I justify it: They are "little". Beans are protein. I'll work out tomorrow. And I'm not pregnant, but that's another justification for you! Let's go to Savannah and eat all the taco bell and fried Southern food we want at Paula Deen's- we'll walk it off. And yes, we're in Jacksonville now:)

  5. No body can make me smile like you Alexis! I stinking loooove you!
    And taco bell is DELISH!! It proves you are still an Epic employee at heart because it has been the food of the week around here. Tandra has gotten several times, and even Todd has endulged in the bell (more than once)this week! :)

  9. I had heard through the grapevine that you were expecting... congrats! Hopefully your pregnancy doesn't leave you too queasy feeling. I had all-day sickness with Ethan and when I finally took Unisom and a B6 supplement it really helped. I was so over ginger ale.

    Anyway, congrats and can't wait to see updates about your little one!

  13. Congrats Lex! I woke up at 3am one night and had to have Taco Bell nachos. I refrained from getting out of bed in that very moment, but you better believe that the next chance I got and they were everything I hoped for! Eat what you can! Your baby needs it!

  14. I am sooo excited for you! You are going to be one hot mama! I came across this amazing idea today and I'm sooo sad I didn't hear about it sooner. This would be perfect for you since you're so tiny and it will be tough finding cute maternity clothes...http://whoorl.com/archives/3383
