Baby Bakin’ and Bacon

This baby is runnnnnin’ out of room!   As of this week,  I’m feeling like I’m ready to have this child.   I’ve gotten quite a few stretch marks across my sides and thighs and they’re just starting right on the center of my belly so I’m hoping that it doesn’t stretch much more because my skin is just not happy about it haha

In honor of it being Thanksgiving week,  I thought I’d share a recipe of one of my favorite side dishes… Pan Fried Green Beans with Bacon. SO so so yum. I do a lot of my cooking where I guess amounts according to taste (learned that from my mama) so bare with me.


2 lbs. fresh green beans, ends snapped and washed

6 slices of bacon

half an onion (sweet, if you can get one) sliced

Cook bacon over medium-high heat in a large skillet and reserve drippings

place bacon on paper towel

cook beans and onion in bacon skillet in the drippings (add a little olive oil, if needed)

stir often  for about 10 minutes

salt and pepper

taste a bean to see if it’s tender-crisp (I like mine very crisp but cook until you’re happy with it)

put in serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped bacon pieces; mix

Eat and Enjoy

Serves 4-6

Variations (add-ins)



*sliced granny smith apple

Also,  I attached a link to a recipe for Paula Deen’s Corn Casserole.  It’s another one of my favorites that I make any holiday that I get the chance!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I’d just love to take a moment to list a few of the things I’m so thankful for:

My husband

My family

The opportunity to be pregnant and getting to meet this sweet baby soon

My church

My friends and clients

Living in America

The sunshine

The beach

My dog Cooper


The opportunities I have to travel this beautiful world

I hope you each get to enjoy this holiday with loved ones and get to take a moment to reflect on the things we are each blessed with in our lives!


  1. You are such a cute mama to be and anyone who eats bacon is alright with me! Lol! Enjoyed your posts as always and love all the super good pics! Pappy and I are waiting anxiously to see your sweet new baby (boy or girl) and I keep thinking Girl! Not finding out which gender has. Brought a lot of fun to the entire pregnancy! Not many people in this day and age could have ever carried it out! Good for you and Jordan!
