Itty Bitty News

Share This:

There have been some strange things happening in The Picky Eater’s kitchen lately…

Like when I went to the grocery store, and came back with this


And for weeks, all I wanted was this

amys pizza

Or this, which also sounded delicious


And why did my breakfasts go from fruit-filled-oatmeal-bowls to this?


And when did this become my drink of choice?


More importantly, where are all the veggies????

Have I totally fallen off my healthy eating wagon?



… might my itty bitty news be about something else? 🙂


The husband and I couldn’t be more excited, the newest addition to The Picky Eater family arrives in January 2014!!


I’m almost 21 weeks along now, and other than the very random non-picky-eater-first-trimester-diet (thank you nausea!) I’m back to my veggie-eating ways and feeling pretty good 🙂

And, the husband and I just found out some other good news….


The husband and I are so excited to share this with all of you — we can’t wait to embark on this next chapter of our lives!! 🙂

    • Awww thanks so much Jenn!! Other than the nausea from week 5-11 it has been pretty smooth! And yeah haha the food preferences/cravings were realllly interesting. For me they were almost 100% driven by what would make me the least sick (veggies literally were nauseating!) It was a nice relief to have the nausea dissipate after week 11(ish) so I could feel more back to normal again!

  1. Congratulations! A little girl, how wonderful! And Jan is such a nice time to have a baby, gives you something to look forward to after the holidays. You look fabulous!

    • Hehe thanks so much Emily!! We are super excited for our daughter to join us in January – it’s just so nice to finally know the gender! Makes it feel more real 🙂

  2. This has to be the best pregnancy announcement i have ever seen, LOVE It!!! and hilarious about the unhealthy ice cream pics hahaha. Congratulations!!!!! My son was a New Years baby;) Jan is a great month! wishing you all the best for a H & H rest of pregnancy!

    • Awwww thank you so much Nina!! That is so cool that your son was born on New Years!! What an amazing way to start the year 🙂 Thanks again for all the well wishes!!

  3. Wonderful news! And I love that women’s pregnant bodies are now revealed in all their glory, no longer covered up with fussy maternity smocks.

    • Thanks Yvonne! And yes!! Absolutely. I totally agree with you – pregnancy is something to be celebrated, not hidden!

    • Haha thanks Mona!! And yes! I’ve already started feeling her little kicks and moving around – so amazingly cool!!

  4. Aww, congratulations to you both! 😀 Princess Picky Eater!
    Look forward to read about all your cravings and how you satisfy them (although the pictures in this post gives a clue) 😀

    • Aw thanks Michelle! And yes! I’m sure I’ll be doing a post about cravings soon 🙂 The first trimester my strategy was just to listen to my body and to eat whatever felt good. Between the fatigue and nausea I couldn’t expect much more of myself! It’s been much easier now that I’m over the 12 week mark!

  5. Congratulations to both of you!! What great news! And, a little girl to spoil, they are sweet and adorable. Can’t wait to hear news every day of how you are doing. Good luck!

  6. Congrats anjali…such an amazing news…somehow i had this feeling that this was coming :-)….yey i guessed it right…
    i could not wait to hear all the tips and suggestions from your end….take care of you and ur sweet pea 🙂

    • Awww thanks Jo!! Haha that’s awesome – I can’t believe you had a feeling about it! Thanks again – hope you are doing great!

  7. This is fantastic news!!! Congratulations! I was scrolling and scrolling, anticipating your surprise and what a wonderful surprise it is! You look so beautiful. Enjoy your pregnancy.

  8. Congratulations!! I’ve been following your blog for about a year now and I absolutely love it! I check it everyday for yummy new recipes. Thank you for changing my attitude and outlook on food. Healthy food can be just as yummy and sometimes even more tasty than junk food. You’ve definitely made me a picky eater…for the most part =)

    • Thanks so much Akansha! And I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying my blog!! And yes! Healthy food can always taste good — I’m all about delicious and nutritious food! Here’s to being a picky eater (yes, most of the time! 🙂 )

  9. Congrats!! What wonderful news! I was like that for the first trimester as well and wanted nothing but carbs and salt&vinegar chips. Luckily I didn’t detest veggies too much after that, but definitely had my cravings! Now that my little boy is almost 6 months old and I have TIME, I’m getting back into it as well.

    All the best for the pregnancy – it’s definitely one of the most hardest but rewarding things you will ever do xx

    • Thanks so much! Haha omg I wanted salt+vinegar chips in the first few weeks too! And I normally don’t like salt+vinegar chips so that was super weird haha. Thanks again for all the well wishes!! 🙂

  10. Congrats! I’m due with a girl in January too! I still can’t eat many veggies though(only if they are in soup), and I am really missing my spinach salads. Glad your veggie aversions have subsided.

    • Thank you so much!! And wow! Congrats to you too! That is super cool 🙂 You’ll have to keep me posted on how your pregnancy goes – wouldn’t it be crazy if we had our girls in the same week?? I hope your veggie aversions subside soon!! I was really missing my veggies in the first trimester so I know how you feel!

  11. Not surprisingly, pregnancy looks beautiful on you! We’re so happy for you two, and excited to see your daughter when things settle down for us all. Words can’t express how happy we are for both of you…and us too!

    • Awwwwww thank you so much Don!!! You guys are so sweet 🙂 We can’t wait for you to meet our baby girl next year! Love you and miss you lots!
