I'm Not Crazy...It's a Great Idea!

I came up with a fantastic idea a few months before I became pregnant. Would you like me to share it with you? You have to solemnly swear that you will not take my idea and run with it. You have to promise that you will not invent my idea and make millions off of my genius plans (and that if you do anyway, you will share it with me). You have to swear on your life that you will not mutter a word to this to anyone you ever meet. And that our secret will be safe now and forevermore.

Got it? Pinky swear? Scouts honor? Cross your heart, hope to die, stick a needle in your eye?

Now that we have that out of the way…let me share.

Imagine…

A restaurant for pregnant women. With a buffet of things they crave. Pickles, ice cream, mashed potatoes, potato chips, macaroni and cheese, cake, pasta.…having weird combinations of food available that regular people don’t think about. Of course there would be all the regular food, meats, veggies, fruits, etc., so that everyone else in the family would enjoy, but the main focus being on the pregnant women and their food cravings!

HOW FUN WOULD THAT BE?!

I would poll pregnant women around the US and get a feel for what the majority crave. I would implement those items into my menu, no matter how strange.

I would also have a tray of hors d'oeuvres delivered to each table, complete with baby back ribs, baby corn, baby spinach and baby carrots.

I would name it “The Belly Buffet” or “The Bump Bistro” or “The Gestational Grill” (Ew), or “The Embryo Eatery” (Double Ew) or “The Tummy Tearoom” or “The Bambino Bistro” or “Lovies Luncheon” or "Pickled Pink!" …I could dream these up all day.

Each pregnant mommy would get special attention while dining, complete with a tiara to wear and free preggo polo shirt that has a small rhinestone stork on the pocket. I would have one special seat at each table – a wing back leather chair for the mommy-to-be, of course. She gets to drink out of a golden goblet and eat off of a silver platter.

Each dessert is served out of a crystal mini baby carriage.

At the end of the meal, I would hand out chocolate mints to the family, but for the pregnant lady – she leaves with a Preggie Pop.

Oh, and if the mommy presents a photo of her ultrasound with her check, she get's HER meal for free! And the photo would go up on the "wall-o-fetus'" with the other sweet ultrasound photos of past customers.

Would YOU visit my charming little eatery?

    I'm not pregnant, but it would be fun to eat there just to see all of the cute names that you come up with for everything.;)

    God Bless,
    Amy:)

    That is so funny!

    My friend [who is having her second] was just saying she wished there was a place where she could order pickles + ice cream and no one would look at her funny.

  10. Why, silly girl! that's what husbys are for!!!!! ha ha ha It was like that at MY house complete with a spa-like room to have cocoa butter rubbed on your belly to prevent stretch marks!!
    We have to add that room to your "Buffet" along with a comfortable bed and body pillow to siesta after lunch! ;-)

  20. Sounds like you are having hormonal dreams, good ones at that! I love your ideas and cracked up laughing at the possibilities!

    Love em all!!!

  21. That is an awesome idea! You are soo creative. I would get pregnant just so I could wear the t-shirt and tiara.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am always amazed by that imagination of yours! I would eat there if I was preggers!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love it, Whit! You crack me up with all of your imaginative ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would so totally eat at your charming little eatery. Seriously, that is a great idea - no joke!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh I'm there! Even though I'm not pregnant I'm totally there. Don't be surprised if you find a 5'11" blonde chick with a basketball under her shirt reaching for a tiara!

    NICE!

    ReplyDelete
  26. could you make the tables a littler higher than the norm so that my belly fits underneath, and I can get close enough to my food that I do not drip on myself??

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh my gosh!!! okay it's official i totally love you now. wow. you are awesome!!!

    would it be wrong to lie about being pregnant and steal my aunts ultrasound pic (she's pregnant right now too) and use a pillow and eat weird combos???

    yeah, i thought that would be wrong too. i'll just start taking random preggo's to lunch :)

    hehehehe i loved this post!!

    Michele

  31. I would come to your place to eat, especially if they had an ice-cream section as I predict that is what I'll crave when my day comes! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. You are crazy, but it is still a good idea! Man, you'd have to be in a place with lots of pregnant women for that to be successful! You're funny!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow! I just laughed so hard! I love it!

    And the baby back ribs, baby corn, baby spinach and baby carrots remind me of Full House when Rebecca told Jesse she was pregs. Ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  34. that sounds lovely! I'd eat there! Some of the combinations might gross out the non-pregnato peeps tho.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is hilarious! You could make millions!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great idea but I am sure I (and other men)would be wearing women's clothes with a pillow stuffed under my dress to try and get in.

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a great idea! I'm 10 weeks today and the wingback chair, golden goblet, and silver platter sound wonderful. I could use a little pampering!

May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
