Hot Berries and Baby Names

Breakfast for lunch!

As I packed up my lunch this morning, I wasn’t feeling savory foods. I wanted something sweet!

Butter pecan Flax-Z-Snax hot cereal with warm berries sounded perfect.

Flax Hot Cereal with Berries

I enjoyed a bowl of hot cereal topped with frozen cherries, blueberries and raspberries that I warmed up in the microwave. Sweet and filling.

All Topped Off

I also enjoyed two Christmas cookies a coworker brought in to work today.

The cookie on the right was unbelievably delicious! It was one of those fantastic no-bake chocolate peanut butter cookies. I know what goes into those cookies and it’s absolutely terrible wonderful!

I also snapped a picture of my mid-morning snack today.

Top Baby Names of 2009

I know what you’re thinking… aren’t you engaged? Shouldn’t you be thinking about getting married before you begin thinking about baby names? Yes, yes of course I’m in full-on wedding mode, but I still cannot help but dream about my perfect baby name!

Itty Bitty Baby

I think most girls have their favorite baby names in the back of their mind. Mine have changed dramatically through the years. For girls I’ve loved Amy, Rachel, Jessica, Roxanne, Kailey, Bridget, Emma and more… For boys I’ve liked Bradley, Tyler, Connor, Caleb and Colby.

What’s your favorite baby name? Boy name? Girl name?

Throughout college (and even still) I’ve loved the name Reagan for a baby girl. I think it’s so beautiful. Unfortunately it rhymes with Ryan’s last name, so that’s out of the running now. 😦 Ryan suggested we name a a baby girl Reagan Megan to really torment her. Nice, huh?

According to an article published on today, here are the top baby names for 2009:
