randoms....

1. I want to tell ya'll our baby's name but I'm nervous for rude comments.  ha!  I'll share it soon and just risk getting judged ;)   We like last names as first names, it's a name I had heard once as a last name and once as a first name. Turns out some of you will probably recognize it from somewhere else....we shall see.  Of course it's a name that we both totally love and we know that's all that matters! :)

2.  I made pumpkin seeds for the first time the other night.  I used fat free, zero calorie "I can't believe it's not butter spray" on them and added lots of onion powder and some garlic pepper salt.  They turned out delicious.
going into the oven...  
finished seeds....
the salty seeds are addicting!!

 3. I cooked dinner on Monday night for the first time in over 2 weeks.  Since Billy is never home for dinner with me I usually just make something quick for myself like a baked potato.  Since he was going to be home before 9 I offered to make dinner and he requested tacos, they turned out delicious!! We tried a new kind of tortillas and we both thought they were the best we'd ever had!! You must try them, they are actually good for you too!  Fat free, high in protein, fiber and low in cals.  You can see the brand/package in the pic below.
4.  The salsa that we had that night was also declicious!! I wanted something more sweet than spicy so I grabbed a mango peach salsa.  Very good and definately worth a try as well!

5. Lastly, Billy opened an online store to sell hockey, exercise and sporting equipment!!  There is a women's section on there with yoga mats and some exercise equipment.  He is hoping to get some workout/yoga clothes on there soon.  He started it mainly to focus on hockey equipment for the kids he coaches!! Check out the site ---> http://www.hockeyshape.com/
If you wanted, you could also go show some love on the Hockey Shape FB page and "like" the store!! 
happy wednesday to you all!! :)

Dana said...

People are always judgemental when it comes to names. As long as you and Billy love it then that is all that matters.

Peach Mango salsa is soooo good!

Congrats to Billy on his online store! Hope its a huge success :)

Brittany said...

I'm holding out on our name too. For the same reasons. Both names we have are last names and I hate to have negative feedback on our baby girl's name!!

Can't wait to hear what you've decided on!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I cant wait to hear the name!! Is it smith? We had a boys name all decided (that some people judged us on) but we are LOST for a girls name we agree on....I ordered some name books finally. Those pumpkin seeds look DELISH!!

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

ps. I want to make pumpkin seeds- how long and what temp do you cook them for?

jennifer said...

I like last names as first names too! I like old fashioned family names as middle names as well...if I had another boy his middle name would be "Virgil" and I'd probably get crap for it but oh well!

Aleshia said...

It's your baby and you are entitled to pick out whatever name you want! I love last names for first names, and I love different names! I have a boy and a girl names picked out that I love! I change my mind all the time when it comes to my future kids name.

Jamie said...

I love last names as first names too so I know I'll like what y'all have picked! Can't wait to hear it :)

Drew's Mom said...

Can't wait to hear the name. Don't worry about others judging... people suck =) But it's YOUR baby so as long as you 2 are happy, that's all that matters. And congrats to Billy on the online store!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

Lindsey said...

I can't wait to hear your name!

Sonja said...

Nothing is worse than when we were thinking about naming our baby girl Tiffaney & someone literally told me it was a "low-class, trashy" name!! I still can't believe someone told me that! LOL

But really? Other peoples opinions do NOT matter! If you love it that's all that matters :)

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

That's awesome about Billy's store! Hope it does well!

Connie said...

MMmm pumpkin seeds! Can't wait to hear the name!! (:

Tatiana said...

I love pumpkin seeds! Yours look yummy!
I say don't worry about others judging your baby's name. I totally get your frustration about it, but after all, it's your baby and you have the right to name him whatever you wish :-) I can't wait to find out his name!
You asked about my little miss's name, and yes we're keeping it a surprise until she's born, and I already know that some people are not going to be ok with it since it's a bit different, but we LOVE it and that's all that counts!

jayme said...

giiiirl! it's all love around here, i'm sure we'll all swoon over the name! and i love pumpkin seeds so hard! yummy! i'm going now to check out billy's store...congrats to him, that's awesome! xo

Amanda said...

hi annie! i can't wait to hear the name for your sweet baby! don't worry about those negative crazy people out there!! those seeds look yummy too! hope you all are having a wonderful day and that you are feeling good! xo

Kristen said...

sounds yummy! I made pumpkin seeds this year too, normally I don't but this year my oldest kiddo decided that he likes them! Yay for me! I made mine the same as you & they are definitely delish! Can't wait to hear your baby name, and don't let any nay-sayers bother you!

undomestic chica said...

Can't wait to hear the name. I promise I won't judge :) We're keeping ours secret because I don't want Boyfriend's family's opinion. One name we're using is one his sister specifically said she doesn't like! Kudos to you for having a name so quickly. We took forever to agree on one boys name let alone two!

And PS I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray is amazing!

Michaela said...

I've been a bit behind and just saw that you're pregnant!! Congratulations :) Can't wait to hear the little guy's name :)

capperson said...

I love, love, love different names!! People are always going to think bad things, so just don't worry about them. If you like the name, then it's the right name and don't let anybody get to you. I can't wait to find out the name :)

Christy said...

I love last names as 1st names too!! I know a few kiddos that have last names as first names and I just love it!! I can't wait to hear what you guys have picked out! ;)

Peach Mango Salsa is one of my favs too - that and pineapple salsa are my to favorite fruit salsas. I gonna have to try those fat free tortillas, taco night is a once a week occuance in the Rooney house. Ha!!

Annie said...

Who cares what anyone else thinks on the name!! It is YOUR baby and you and B are the only ones that matter!! If anyone makes a rude comment they have issues!! I just dont understand...my mama always told me, if you dont have anything nice to say...then dont say anything at all!!

this free bird said...

I'm just going to throw it out there - Smith!! I hope it's Smith! My hair cutter ahem, stylist's son is named Smith. He is the cutest little thing and I had never heard his name used as a first. Very unique.

But you know what? Whatever you choose will be wonderful.

xoxo,
carrie

katie@tulsadetails said...

Dying to hear the baby's name! I bet it is great!

Naturally Caffeinated Family said...

I can't wait to hear your baby name, it'll be wonderful! (I feel the same way about sharing, but I'm going to share our top 2 soon too :)) I LOVE making tacos at home, mmmm, so yummy! and your pumpkin seeds sound fabulous!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Aw, I can't wait to hear the name!!

bananas. said...

who cares what anyone thinks about your baby's name...it's not their baby to name.

my cousin and his wife are thinking about naming their baby luxious. your name can't be any worse than that right? ;)

My Dream Ring said...

ok who give a crap what people think of your baby's name if you and your hubby likes it thats all that matters, right? Please share I can't wait to see what you've picked! My oldest daughters name is Saisunni and no one can pronounce it right much less spell it, but its her Thai name and she loves it.

5th Belle Avenue said...

Our sweet boy's name is unique and a last name, too! We've kept it a secret so far and I am soooo ready to spill it, hopefully SOON! I can't wait to hear yours! HA, watch it be the same name.

Marian said...

Big Congrats to Billy for his store!! How exciting!!! ANd those pumpkins seeds look delicious...I wish I would have made some this year

chelsea said...

yum I LOVE pumpkin seeds! I also love last names as first names...like beckham :) You're looking awesome mama!

Kris said...

Congrats on your baby boy! What a blessing! My husband and I have just started trying to get pregnant. Don't worry about other's judgements- if someone passes judgement on you and your baby's name, they are not worth your time. I know plenty of people who have babies with unique names- my nephew was born in September and his name is Parker, which is a common last name. My husband and I have always said if we have a boy, his name will be Sawyer (after Sawyer on "LOST"). As long as you and your husband love the name, thats all that matters :) Good luck! Cant wait to see the name!

Lil' Woman said...

I won't judge, pinky swear....what's the name!?
