Blogging, round 2.

Well, Hello Friends!

2016-05-14 10.19.12

I’ve decided to do this blogging thing again; I always loved my old blog (which has disappeared into the depths of the internets somewhere), but I got away from it when Paisley was born.

I still don’t have gobs of free time, but I wanted a way to share with more people, and this seems like the best avenue.

No one reads lengthy posts on facebook, but people will typically stop & read a useful blog post – so my goal here is to create useful content & to document my second pregnancy and then my journey with 2 kids.. EEK!


Today I wanted to share my meal plan for the week; meal planning is a huge budget & sanity saver. There are few things I hate more than trying to decide what we are having for dinner at 5pm. I need to be starting dinner, not trying to figure out what we are having. So every week I create a meal plan, and do my best to stick with what’s on it. Last week was a bit of a disaster, but I’m just going to blame that on pregnancy cravings & these insane hormones that have taken hold.

I’m determined to do better this week, so I’ve written out a plan, and I’ll share all the links with you, so if you think one of the meals sounds like something you want to try, just click the link, and it will take you right to the same recipe that I will be using.


May 23, 2016 – May 29th, 2016


Paleo Meatloaf with brussel sprouts & potatoes

Chicken sausage with zucchini & squash  (no recipe) (throw it all in a pan, sauté until it’s done. use whatever seasonings your heart desires)
Sloppy Joes w/ Zoodles
Pork steaks with potatoes & asparagus (no recipe for the pork steaks. We buy them from a local meat market, and Chris seasons them with some kind of rub I bought from publix)
Sausage & sweet potato hash
Chick pea salad with artichoke hearts & sundried tomatoes
Cauliflower pizza


This week is also the week that I get my act together with my workouts – Last week was a complete wash, but this week my plan is to work out 5 days, and take 2 rest days.

I also need to get back into waking up early, and getting some stuff done before Paisley wakes up. I’ve been going back to bed after Chris leaves for work, and the extra sleep is nice, but I don’t have the luxury of having unlimited hours in the day to get things done. My most productive hours are when Paisley is asleep, so my time is kind of limited here.


I HAVE to get back into a schedule, I do so much better with a schedule & a plan!


Have a great week, Friends!
