Clear is my Favorite Color

Since finding out I was pregnant, I've had a lot of trouble figuring out what to eat.  Nothing sounds good or I'm too tired to cook...it's been quite the experience.  I had a lot of trouble making a grocery list over the weekend so I ventured out to Costco to scout out new and yummy foods sans list.   

So what did I find?


Gummy Bears.

For some reason I was just drawn to these things.  But there was a problem.  I was at Costco, remember?  This wasn't your average bag of gummies.  This was a 6 lb. bag.

A 6 lb. bag of goodness.

After a little begging, I got Matt to agree to this essential purchase.  (tip:  All you have to say is, "The baby really wants gummy bears." and he'll give in.  Genius.)

And I haven't looked back since.  Granted, I've hardly made a dent in this bad boy...but not a day has gone by where this girl has not enjoyed the yumminess of those clear gummies.  

Oh clear, how I love you.

This is the weirdest thing and I'm not even sure how it's possible but gummy bears give me a headache. Strange, right?

Hilarious! I love it that you bought a stockpile of gummy bears to get you through the first trimester at least! ;-)

This is awesome! And sooo funny because I wrote a post all about my favorite flavors of random candy right now - I never noticed flavors so much until NOW! I haven't posted it yet, but I will soon! Yumm. Gummy Bears. :)

I bought this bag when I took my students to Yearbook Camp. But I ended up eating most of them!

I love gummies! I always want to buy them and the husband convinces me not to!

Hahaha. My boyfriend would love and hate you... -- love for sharing his obsession with gummy bears, but hate for getting your significant other to cave and let you buy them! He had his eye on a 5lbs bag of them and I quickly nixed the idea. He doesn't have the baby line to use though. ;)
