First Trimester Nesting?

I will never be compared to Betty Crocker nor Martha Stewart. I can cook just enough to get by and I can sew some awesome pillows and curtains. Asking me to sew anything else would be a joke. Yet during the past week I've found myself "craving" to cook. Cook things I wont even eat. I want to make baked chicken with garlic cloves and basel. I want to make homemade crock pot mac & cheese, homemade chili, and biscuits that don't come from a can. My desire to make the cut little snow men cake tops I saw on pintrest is consuming me. I have saved more recipe sites on the internet in the past 2 days than I have my entire life.   I want to cook. I want to take down my sign that reads "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house" and hang aprons from the hook instead. I'm so glad I coupon. This could be a serious problem otherwise. 

And then there is sewing. I want to make a King size comforter for my bed that is fluffy, and beautiful. I want curtains and pillows galore! I want to sew a dust ruffle (even though they are totally off limits at my house since they serve no purpose but collecting dust) 
I want to re-do my fireplace and make it look pretty again. I want to buy a million picture frames of all shapes and sizes and spray paint them complementing colors and hang them all over this house. I wont even get started on what my mind is doing to my boys rooms. ha ha. 

I'm not sure if I should consider this some sort of "first-trimester nesting"or what... But I'm enjoying it while it lasts!!

I'm going to take before pictures of the house just in case I act on my desires and start changing everything in sight. :)
