A boy or girl for the Treese family?

Today I had an appointment with my OB,
and I found out


to say I'm thrilled would be an understatement.
A boy for the Treese family.
How wonderful.

the fourth of july

our fourth was wonderful.
I knew it would be for my little family because
casey woke up singing Proud to be an American,
stuck american flag and In N Out stickers
on Ginger's face,
and put a flag in her hand.
all day I felt overwhelmingly grateful.
we spent most of the day poolside.
we had delicious food made by my MIL
including gazpacho so good it'll make you
wanna slap yo mama!
I have no idea what that means,
casey always says it.
we lit fireworks
and then went up to the rooftop
where my in-laws have the best view of the
entire city and watched numerous
firework shows.
And as I went happily through the day in
my heart I continuously thanked all the brave
men and woman of this beautiful country
that have allowed me to enjoy such treasures.

My most incredible treasure...

Behold... Gazpacho

What's better than this?

two thumbs way up.

Just a pregnant back dive... no big deal.

That's Peggy under that fabulous hat.

...and I'm proud to be an american...

The End.

a recipe from me to you

well from tyler florence to me to you.
every once and a while you come upon something
so good, it seems sinful not to share.
if you dont like mushrooms
I do believe this is the dish that will change your mind
and convert your heart.

5 ingredients
10 minutes start to finish.
not to brag but I can do it in 7
probably because Im awesome
or super hungry.

olive oil, sea salt, mushrooms ( I fancy portabella), mozzarella cheese, fresh thyme.
Im sure dried thyme would do the trick, too.

Firstly slice the mushrooms. they broil fast so not too thick of slices.
place on broil pan. like so...

Nextly, put dime size balls (or quarter size if youre crazy) of cheese all over the mushrooms,
sprinkle sea salt, scatter fresh thyme (off the stem), drizzle olive oil, add a bit more salt.

Then place in the broiler for 2-3 minutes... dont walk away (trust me)...
you know its ready when the cheese is oozy and bubbly and golden brown
in some places.

Ta Dah.

and sometimes you get a super cool mustache like this...

If you cry while you eat this. dont be ashamed... youre in good company.
