Rachael Ray Roundup

I'm so glad I decided to share my pregnancy news with all of you and thanks so much for all the lovely comments. All those people who think this blog is written by Rachael Ray are going to be really confused by that post. Things are still going well!

The baby kicks me all day long, which can be distracting at work, but I'm getting used to it. I've been doing a ton of cooking, which I will really try to make a priority even after baby comes (stop snickering, you moms out there!).

Here are some Rachael Ray posts from around the blogosphere this week. If you see a post that you think would be good for the Roundup, or you write one yourself, e-mail me so I can be sure to include it.

  1. Hi Madeline, thanks for the link. And, congrats on your happy news!

  2. Good gravy! as RR used to exclaim, "unfailingly polite?" See, I knew she would be civil. (Maybe he regrets the absinthe...or whatever he had while at the event.)

  3. I know! It's shocking, isn't it?

  4. I missed it! Congratulations on your pregnancy! You're getting pretty close there, huh? I was very very large around this time 8 years ago, myself!

  5. Thanks, Jennifer! I just passed the 34 week mark. Freaking me out a little!
