This past Saturday was a HUGE day for me.  It was the second annual Auburn International Festival, a City of Auburn event that I was in charge of.  It was the culmination of months of planning, sweat (and yes, even a few tears!).  The past two work weeks have been 60-80 hour weeks for me, but it finally paid off.  Check out some photos from the event and at the end you can see my culinary secret for handling the stress!

Now, the secret for dealing with long stressful days?

Pickles and ice cream!  No, I didn’t actually eat the two together, but I sure went through a lot of pickles and popsicles and ice cream over the past couple of months.

Also, I am now 17 weeks pregnant, with a baby the size of a turnip and baby bump to match!

This photo was actually taken at 15 weeks but I’d say I’m about the same size, for now!  Hope you enjoyed the visual recap of the festival.  Next post, my favorite recipe for stuffed bell peppers.
