    Haha, parents always have the best food around 🙂 If I had gone home for Christmas I would have gained 10 pounds!

    Buy some of those Jolt pants that have the maternity-style waist. They are now the loves of my life, and still appear stylish as I expand after each meal of leftovers 🙂

    This looks amazing. You and your Mom should open a restaurant…and as an excellent compromise to your East/West Coast lives, you should open it here in Texas….Please…

    Delicious! I love strawberries and french toast. Only thing that comes close is warm scones, fresh cream and home made jam!

    Yeah I’m not looking forward to going back to college… My mom hardly cooks but I love having my beautiful kitchen and all of the fresh fruits and veggies my little heart desires.

    though the number of cookies means staying at home typically involves bigger pants for me too 😉

    I absolutely love your website, by the way. I want to be you when I grow up 😉

    STRETCHIER pants, that’s all you will need. Target has some that not only stretch, but sort of relax to the point where they kind of don’t stay on that well by the end of the day, which is probably because I’m SHRINKING as the day wears on and I can eat more cookies than I thought I could. Highly recommend.

    Bacon…croissants…butter…cheese….fruits…good …now , u need chocolate, etc.

    I wear elastic waistbands as much as possible. I have no restraint…and it is not good! This might be TMI, but I’m literally “plugged” up….making me having serious stressful issues more than ever as of late!

    Nostalgia. But wouldn’t Adam miss you? 😉 I assume he’s with his family? Does he have Mom’s approval?!

    In my opinion – forget the Stretchy pants. Go straight for the elastic-waist band sweatpants. Stretchy pants just stretch – they still show all the bumps and bulges. Sweats? Now they do the job of “hovering”…

    Only when we’re mostly away from home do we appreciate it so much:) The same goes with our parents, only if we’re mostly away do they want us around. haha

    Was the larger pants mom’s suggestion, too? I think my mom would be honest about that with me…
