I AM ASTONISHED

I am pregnant with a baby girl. We guessed as much early on because all I was craving was salt, salt, salt. Which, by the way, is NOT totally abnormal. I think Peter's cousin once advised him to buy me a salt lick when she witnessed me pouring salt into the palm of my hand and licking it off...repeatedly. Anywho.....


Even though I have been craving salt... every now and again I crave something sweet. For the most part I take care of those cravings myself because I LOVE all things in DOUGH form. I think I have mastered making cookie dough in record time. (Around 5 minutes). However, from time to time I like to rely on "baked goods" not made by myself to satisfy my cravings because sometimes it is nice to just sit on your heiny and not have to move off the couch to curb a craving...


In enters obliging husband. My husband came out of his hovel.. I mean office... tonight at about 9:58 p .m.at which time I uttered something about wanting my favorite GO TO baked good... SVENHARDS. Ever heard of em? Here....

Not just ANY Svenhards will do.. .They MUST BE BUTTER HORNS! I am not a huge fan of any kind of FRUITY filling. Just give it to me plain... with butter on it. In my personal (but incredibly knowledgeable) opinion this is by FAR one of the best baked goods that you can buy and eat and love. Oh, throw a little butter on it, (My husband once said it is like putting butter on a Krispy Kreme) throw it in the microwave for 25 seconds and you have ONE AMAZING BAKED GOOD ITEM WARM OUT OF THE OVEN. I mean, Microwave. Thanks to my mom for starting the warmed butter horn with BUTTER tradition. I will most certainly carry it forward.

Back to the Husband. Being the GREAT husband that he is... he offered to go get me some. No, he didn't offer... he just grabbed his keys off the counter and left. At 10:42... I began to wonder where he might be? I mean, the store isn't THAT far away. I called him on his cell to find that he had visited 7 stores... 7 STORES! To find my beloved Svenhards to no avail. He gave his all... he did his best... I told him to come home. (He still brought me a baked good so I didn't have to go without) NOW THAT IS LOVE I TELL YOU. Thank you honey, you are the best. I guess I better start stocking them as food storage because there seems to be a shortage around these parts.

I don't even feel a bit bad about it because:

A. He wanted to and

B. This is the last chance I have to get ANY pregnancy related TLC that I can get!

So, I am going to soak it ALL IN (and pack it all on)!

That is true love indeed. When I was pregnant the last time all I wanted was peach pie. But, alas, no peaches in Peru during the winter. My husband provided every single variety available without resorting to an airplane, but sometimes there is just no substitute. Hope you find them, and soon.

Yes... soak it in! It is not often that we as moms ask for anything-- so GO FOR IT!

Hope you liked your other baked goods!

I didn't know about the craving salt for a girl thing. Interesting.

And I've never heard of svenhards. ??

Tina said...

Wow, that really is TRUE love. And get it while you can. Our last beauty is 2 and those cravings just arent treated the same without the bun in the oven.

Christie said...

That's a lot of work for plastic-wrapped stale pastry. You sure they're that good? Hostess won't do?

Butter on butter? Sounds good to me!

What a sweet and loving hubby. He should win an award.

Jessica said...

On Baby #3, we had big crying uproar regarding certain people not buying other certain pregnant people taco bell and sprite at 11pm and the issue has since been resolved to my, um, I mean certain people's, satisfaction.

Peter is my HERO!

Yes, I too have made my husband do illegal, I mean crazy, things to get me my pregnancy cravings (like speed down University Ave. in Orem 90 miles per hour to beat the closing time of Orange Julius----and he was triumphant I might add!)

Did I tell you Peter is my HERO? By the way, Peter is my hero!

Bridget said...

Whatever floats your boat girlfriend. I'm with Christie though. It doesn't look so good. I'd take a Hostess chocolate cupcake.

Lene said...

Good luck finding Svenhard's in AZ.
I don't know of anyone that carries them here. I really like the bear claws. Yummy.

Lene said...

You can always get them online:

You will just have to plan ahead since you never know when those crazy hormone cravings will kick in.

Those pregnancy cravings are strong! I love cookie dough. It rarely makes it to the oven.

Jill said...

What a STUD husband. That is so AWESOME!!!!!
I am a TOTAL dough girl too!!!!!!!!!!!

Lene said...

Well there you go...I don't even know where the nearest bashas is to us. I might have to go on a little pastry hunt.

jessica said...

You have one devoted husband! I know those cravings are real, my cravings....mangos and chocolate shakes. The same with both of my girls. Weird I know.
