My bookshelf

I've been in a reading mood lately. Most of my bookshelf contains mothering/parenting books. My problem is that I will start a book, get to a spot that doesn't interest me, I'll take a long break, or something happens like I'm too busy, or I'll find a different book. After a while, I'm half way through 5 different books not being able to retain a whole lot. So, I've been trying to be good, not to rent anything from the library, so that I can give myself time to read what I have at home and actually finish them. I've been picking up books through and plan on swapping them back for the others that are on my wishlist! Thought I'd share, I know it's a lot. But I hope to at least read 15 books with in the year! Is that a lot? I've never counted or kept track how many books I've read...This is a first.

Here's where I'll start.
Learning to Live Financially Free by Marybeth & Curt Whalen (started months ago and would really like to finish it this month...)
The Power of a Postive Wife by Karol Ladd (JUST started)
Savoring Living Water by Lara Williams and Katie Orr (click on picture to go to the website)
(Fun read) The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

What's on your bookshelf that you have read or would like to read? I might like to add it myself! Let me know if you've read and recommend any that are on my list!

Pregnancy Update week 27

*YAWN* all I can say these days is, "Where's my bed?! Is it nap time yet? Why am I SO tired???"

Today I was in the dr. office waiting to get my blood drawn after I drank that nasty orange stuff...and I almost fell asleep in my chair it's been so bad....

BUT!!! I just got up from a nap and am drinking some Pepsi, so hopefully that will get me through the evening! Seriously though, I don't remember being this tired with my first!

I feel like I look huge...I FEEL huge!!!

How far along: 27 weeks - Third trimester starts now!!!!

Countdown: 13 weeks

Size of baby: Small cabbage. 17 in, 2.9 lbs

Maternity clothes: Bring out the maternity summer clothing! Couple months ago I found a good sale and stocked up on summer clothes for our Florida trip in February. There in the picture is a comfy tank I had gotten then. I think from now on that's all I'll be wearing is tanks and my stretchy capris. 
Last week Joe and I found a REALLY cute dress at Target and I can't wait to wear it!!! :)

Movement: Lots of jabbing going on. Sometimes really hard jabs! Couple weeks ago I mentioned that I thought he was curling up on my right/front side and then I'd get this weird bump on my belly...It's been happening more often and my stomach muscles will get really hard. The other night as I was laying down, my stomach was so deformed I googled "braxton hicks" and I found a picture that a girl took of her belly during a braxton hicks, and sure enough...I was having them without even realizing it! They don't hurt like it seems for other people. I just get really tight stomach muscles and a funny looking belly that's lop sided. I get them almost every night when I lay down at the end of the day. At least this time it's that instead of the annoying leg cramps like I was having in my last pregnancy...SO PAINFUL!!!!

What I miss: Wearing normal shirts.

Sleep: never seem to get enough. I took two little naps today.

Symptoms: My bladder suffering here!

Cravings: Dark soda like Coke or Pepsi

Best moment of the week: Buying more summer baby clothes at a consignment sale! :) (summer clothing is my weakness!)

What I'm looking forward too: Seeing my baby's face for the very first time. Joe and I have been talking about how anxious we are getting to meet this little one!

Saved 70% at Publix! (3/16)

This post is a week in the making...I was waiting till I went back to exchange some things and I didn't get back till yesterday...Oh well. I officially have no more room in my freezer so I think I will be taking a break this next week from shopping unless it's a need. 

My favorite buy was probably the Lucky Charms for $0.69 each! 

oop: $20.44
savings: $48.66
That's a savings of 70%!!!!
(I grabbed the wrong box of Bayer and didn't notice till I got home...So later on in the week I exchanged them for the 20 count. So the picture has the wrong boxes, but the prices are updated...)

I got everything that I wanted, except the frozen pretzels. I don't know if I was just not seeing them, (but I can never seem to find them at the Publix in Taylors) or they don't sell them. Oh well. I had already grabbed a box for $0.20 at Bi Lo earlier this week, and my freezer is REALLY full... Still, wish I had grabbed a rain check from last weeks sale at Bi Lo. Live and learn...

Here's what this week's haul got me! :)

(the prices are after coupons)
2 boxes of Lucky Charms: $0.69 ea.
Palmolive dish soap: $0.75
2 Resolve Spray and 1 Stick: $0.49 ea.
Snuggle Fabric Softener: $1.99
2 Ken's marinade sauce: $0.50 ea
2 Pepsi cola products: $0.83 ea
Publix frozen vegetables: $0.99
2 Gortmans shrimp: 2.00 ea
2 Bayer Advanced 20ct: $0.99 ea
2 Halls cough drops: $0.45 ea
2 containers of strawberries: $1.11 ea
1 lb of asparagus: $1.11 (I used the $2/$5 produce coupon for the strawberries and asparagus!)
Beechnut Mini meals: FREE!

I've been keeping record of my weekly shopping and savings in a spreadsheet for 4 weeks now and my year  to date savings is 52%. Alone, my Publix savings YTD is 69%!!!

Now....Here's hoping I stay out of the stores this week! We need to eat out of our freezer for a few days!

Anyone have any good ideas on what I should do with the strawberries in my fridge? I need to do something quick as we haven't been eating them quick enough! Smoothie recipes?!

A look into our week

Who doesn't love Pinterest? Besides the fact that it tends to steal hours upon hours from you and it's SO addicting!!!! 

Well, I found a few recipes that I couldn't pass up and wanted to try. I don't usually take pictures, but since I'm in a blogging mood, I couldn't blog this without taking pictures! :)

You can find the recipe for these Breakfast Sandwiches in the link. I actually made them for supper and froze the rest for later! We were in a "breakfast for dinner" kind of mood that night!

 The cooked eggs in my muffin tin! I had beaten them a little bit just so that the yolk was broken up.

 I even cooked the bacon in the oven this time! I've never done that before and I'm never going back to stove top bacon cooking! :)

I froze the egg, bacon, cheese, and muffin separately before I wrapped together. Wrapping them brought back memories of working in the sub shop at the gas station in my home town. 

We ate our "breakfast for dinner" with bagels instead of muffins and they were AWESOME!!! I love finding recipes that Joe likes and Pinterest has been a HUGE lifesaver! (I'm one that tends to make repeat meals week after week because of lack of ideas and or creativity!) So, I'm adding this one to the list of a successful meal to make again!

Our now a peak into our week of preschool with Lincoln!
 C is for Caterpillar

 I LOVE capturing these kind of shots! :)

Joseph's coat of many colors made from a coffee filter!

And the rest of the day was spent outside! Can not believe the beautiful weather we're having! And to think that it's the same temperature in Michigan as it is here! WOW!!! Hope it lasts for a little while and we're not in for a HOT summer!  

Any favorite Pinterest finds you'd like to share?! I'm always up for some good pins to add to my board! :)

My daily routine (a work in progress)

In my ramblings here and here, I mentioned a few times that I knew things had to change and most of it had to do with my mindset. My mind was going to mush as I was just going through my day with no plan, no goals, and I wasn't really doing anything to help with my relationship with God. As morning sickness was starting to become a thing of the past, and energy was coming back, and a few nesting aspects were settling in, I wanted to start working on my morning/daily schedule. 

But where to start?

Just then I started reading a blog series from Money Saving Mom called: How to Develop a Routine That Works - and Stick With It! 

Crystal had us start out by looking for the "Big Rocks in Life" and what mattered to us most in our routine. She had us ask ourselves: "What are the most important things I want to be prioritizing in my life right now?" I took time to write these down on paper so that I could visually see my "Big Rocks."

Here's the list that I came up with:
1. Alone time with God/prayer life
2. Preschool with my son at home
3. Family time (reducing computer/tv)
4. Housework
5. Couponing/Menu plannin
6. Blogging/social media
7. Exercise 

The next thing we worked on was creating a basic Morning, Afternoon, and Evening Routines. I adapted a routine from Crystal's printouts you can find here. You can download a customizable one if you'd like for free! :)

And that's how I started coming up my goal. (It's just a little goal, but it's something) My goal is to maintain a half way decent routine so that my day wouldn't be so chaotic, lazy and nothing would get done. SOMETHINGS were going to get done!!!!'s a peak at my Daily To Do/cleaning list:

Before Breakfast
Bible/Prayer time
Work out
Shower and Dress
Quick clean up over bathroom
Start load of laundry
School Prep

After Breakfast
Clean up breakfast dishes
Unload & load dishwasher
Wipe kitchen counter tops
Thaw anything needed for dinner
5-minute pick up
Switch load of laundry

After Lunch
Clean up lunch dishes
Load dishwasher
Sweep Kitchen Floor
5-minute pick up
Check something off the Weekly To Do/cleaning list

Before Dinner
Dinner prep
Fold Load of Laundry and put away
5-minute pick up

After Dinner
Clean up dinner dishes
Load dishwasher and run
Pick out tomorrow's clothes

My day does not go like this on a normal basis. I'm lucky if I get a somewhat regular routine done during the day! It used to bother me when I'd start my day thinking I'll have everything crossed off, and by the end I would be no where close to having it all crossed off. So I would get frustrated and end up giving up.

This time I told myself to start slow, try it for a few weeks and see what happens. I can always tweak my schedule to what works best. So far the best thing is just sticking to it, slowly chipping away, not worrying about the stuff that didn't get done, and instead focus on my family more.

These were just the first two steps of the blog series. I'm still working on 3 and 4

Later this week I'll blog on how the schedule has been going so far, and list my Weekly to do list for you to see!

Before you go...
What's your daily routine like for you and your family?

Size of baby: Head of cauliflower 16 in, 2.5 lbs

Maternity clothes: nope, not gonna wear them till last minute. :) Except for that ugly maternity dress I wore on Sunday....

Movement: ACTIVE!!!! I think he must be moving into position, or he has found that his legs and feet are good for kicking up into my rib cage! Especially when I'm sitting down. He must be running out of room.

Symptoms: Little bit of heartburn in the evenings. and TIRED ALL DAY LONG!!!!

Cravings: Nothing that I can think of....

Saved 70% at Publix!!! (3/8)

Another good week. I did do some extra shopping at Aldi this week during their produce sale. With the bacon I got at Publix and all the extra eggs we have, I plan on making this. :)
Total oop: $13.10
Total saved: $30.48
that's 70% in savings!!!

I had a balance on the bottom of my receipt from last week saying that I could still get 1 schick razor and get 4ECB, so I tried and it didn't print out any ECB's and it didn't reset. So the cashier manually printed it out and crossed off the balance on my receipt. So now, I wonder if I could go back again this week since the deal is running again this week??? I'll have to check if it had reset for this week...

I just realized that I lost a receipt as I did this in three transactions at two different stores.... SO I can't really tell how much I saved, but I know it was just under $5 and I got 5 ECB back. I was really disappointed that I didn't catch the cashier when she started ringing my ECB's before I could stop her. So I was over so many cents that I had to put in a filler item. (hence the caramel) WASTE of ECB's.... BUT....everything was pretty cheap! :) So I'm still happy with this trip! I'll probably find the receipt after I do some cleaning, I'm curious as to how much I saved.

Preschool with Lincoln - Noah's Ark!

I've been kind of behind with Lincoln's preschool. We're only on week five of the curriculum, and we skipped review week... Sad, I know. But the weather's been beautiful, and with dr. appointments, playdates and stuff....we've been slowing taking out time. Hopefully this week will run smoother, but I'm not counting on it. It's supposed to be in the mid 70's - low 80's this week and I plan on using that to our advantage!!!!


Here's how our week is beginning to look like. We are on the story of Noah's Ark. We're looking forward to making rainbows later on this week! (link to the curriculum I use)

The Letter of the week is B. So we made 'b' things and made them blue.

A 'B' butterfly that has blue glitter! Glitter's always fun!

I took these in between break/lunch time and he had a treat of watching Blue's Clues, so he wasn't too interested in showing off his crafts at that moment!!!

He made Blue and got to watch with her!

This week our memory verse is: John 14:15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command."

We also worked on cutting with scissors, and our new number of the week is the number 3. I hope to post more later on in the week. Monday's are always hard to jump into. At least he slept in this morning instead of waking up before the sun like last week! (Thank you daylight savings time change!!!)

Recent updates on Lincoln's life: It seems every week there's something new that he's doing that makes me just stare at him and wonder where my baby boy went?! Like just the other day, I swear, he aged 4 whole years in front of me. He no longer had the baby boy image...He was a BOY.

Here's how it went down: He decided to use the big potty. (which happens on occasion, not that unusual.) But this time he was on a mission... He pulled his step stool UP to the BIG toilet and PEED STANDING UP!!!....Sorry...but maybe you moms out there with boys will understand what I'm going through right now...But this is BIG. I don't know what it is, but it's a big deal for me!!! *ok, I'll stop now....sorry*

Lincoln will come up with these hilarious phrases that I wish I had them recorded when he says them! I wanna try to record some of his story telling, but usually he just stops the story and ends up more interested in my camera....So...anyways. The other day he went potty in his pants. So while we were in the bathroom, he was kneeling on the floor for some reason, I was telling him how he wasn't supposed to be going potty in his pants and to get up and get into the bathtub. He then puts his hands together in a prayer like manner and says, "Yes, Master." I didn't laugh or do anything. All I said was, "no...I'm your mom, not your master." Not till after his bath when I told daddy the story, then did I start laughing about it!

Another funny thing, well, funny to me....(and cute) is hearing him hum. Only just recently has he started humming. His favorite song to hum is "I've got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy, down in my heart" and it makes my heart full of Joy to hear him! :)

Our house has accumulated tons of papers with drawings of stick men. I don't want to get rid of them because this is very new of him to do.

He loves craft time, always asks if we're going to be doing school, doesn't like nap time anymore, is ALWAYS jumping on my bed, a recent breakfast skipper like me, wanting to do EVERYTHING by himself, a mommy's boy, and a helper. I love this little guy! :)

Thoughts on this wife and motherhood thing...and what's helped me along the way.

OK....first things first....HOW DO I EDIT IN BLOGGER?! I just had a nice looking layout, type, and even color. Now NOTHING is working! What am I doing wrong?! *vent*

The following ramblings are thoughts that have been going through my head mainly on my role as a child of God, a wife, and a mother. The main reason for me to write this out is just to clear some thoughts, organize what’s in my head, and serve as a sort of accountability for myself. I encourage you to join in if you have any comments, tips, or ideas. Thanks! :)

I feel that God has been challenging me through so many different avenues with in the last couple weeks. I don't know how or where to put my thoughts down right now. I feel somewhat scattered brained, but also feel the most peace I've ever felt in a long time.

Jn. 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world give do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

Phil. 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication and thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I don't know if it's the combination of joy and contentment, a renewed spirit and trust, or just sweet reunion and everything wrapped up all together in one. But God has been and IS good at restoring and reveling Himself to me in ways that I've forgotten about, and in ways I've never even considered. He's brought people into my path that has helped me to learn and grow, and He's helped me in reminding me of the others that have been in my life forever and their sweet example that they have or have had in my life.

2 Cor. 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

So please bear with me as I try to explain or share what God is doing in my life. It may seem very simple to some. I've never been someone that could explain what’s in my head. Communicating how I feel or wanting to express something clearly was never my strength. I'm still growing in this process of wife/motherhood and especially in my Christian walk. I like to say I've always had a sweet personal relationship with my Savior, but not till just recently, do I truly feel like I've found that 'sweet spot.' That rekindling, reunion I was talking about. And I think a lot of it had to do with my mindset of who I really am as a wife and mother. I've had to re-think some things through and come to realize my ministry and my calling for the RIGHT NOW in my life. (Which I plan to talk about more in another post.)

Ps. 1:3 He [she] is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in it's season, and it's leaf does not wither. In all that he [she] does, he [she] prospers.

I don’t want to forget this, or lose it. I want this feeling to stay. So as I start going through this process of bearing my thoughts, soul, and feelings to the world, (or the few that read this) maybe this will mainly just help serve as a way to keep me accountable in my walk. Maybe it can be a help as a challenge for all of us to find that sweet relationship we either once had or want to have.

Ps. 1:1 Blessed [happy] is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; bit his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

As I reintroduced myself back into the blogging world, I dove into the ‘Christian mommy side of things’ and found some really awesome ladies that have really encouraging blogs and topics with awesome resources. I thought I’d list some of the ones that I've personally enjoyed. has some great bible study topics for moms/women. I really enjoyed going through the names of God under the Scripture Dig section of their website. Just recently I started going through their Winter Bible Study called Run to Him where we are exploring Psalms together. is going through a series calledCultivating a Heart for Motherhood. The series goes through the significance of motherhood, some obstacles in motherhood, anger and patience, and more! I've been blessed through this series and challenged through the printouts provided. is a part of (Most of these blogs are somehow connected either by authors, groups, books, etc…). Through this site I found an AWESOME book that has challenged me with my devotions. I’m still reading it and wish I had a hard copy. It just seems harder for me to read a book through my phone or computer. But what I've read so far has been great! It's called: “Savoring Living Water: how to have an effective quiet time For Moms of Boys, by Moms of Boys. A great site on mothering boys. They have some great looking books that I've already purchased for my kindle app, but still haven’t gotten the time to read them. I can’t wait to start! is where I found a great (free) ebook called,Maximize Your Mornings.” “This ebook [is] to help busy moms like you create an effective and life giving morning routine.” Through this short book, I was challenged to write out my plan for my morning schedule. (Which, I will be sharing later in another post.)

Because of all these great sites and openness of these Godly women, one of the biggest things that has helped and is such a HUGE encouragement is this: knowing that I’m not alone in this motherhood thing. I’m not alone in wanting to know my God more. We all struggle but desire to be closer to our God more than anything else. And the tighter we cling to Him, the better we can and will be at this wife and mothering thing He has called us in to. Getting up early (my struggle) is not an easy task and it takes time and effort and realizing that we need to fully rely on Him for the grace and strength each day. It just takes coming to Him and asking.

Another thing that God has challenged me was on my prayer life. I like to journal my thoughts, but I felt like I should give praying out scripture a try! I've been really enjoying this. Here are some prayer sheets with Scripture on praying for our kids and husbands each day (and other great resources):

I can really see God doing a work in my son’s heart. He’s sensitive to and understands the Bible stories and likes to retell the stories after question and answer time. Just this past week we went through the story of sin in the Garden of Eden. I was so cool to see his mind work around the concept of God not allowing disobedience and how there's consequences because of our disobedience. Now, if you just come up to him and ask him to tell you the story, he might say something like "God tricked Eve," or "Satan said the fruit was bad..." Understand, these are new concepts and we're working on it! ;) But it's cute to hear him try!

back on topic....

So through all that, (the finding of resources, encouragement, challenges, and a new sense of my mission as a wife and mommy...)I knew I had to change my morning schedule. That will be my next post. I’ll share my schedule that I’ve created and how it worked out for me this past week. My goal is to stick to it for at least two weeks and see where I will need to go from there.

I hope that you enjoyed reading this post and maybe even found some new resources that will encourage you to grow as it has for me. I felt the need to share because I know how discouraging and hard motherhood can be at times, especially for young moms. I may have it easy now, as I’m only dealing with one set of little eyes, hands, and ears, soon to be two….and I may not have the experience of a mother with 12 children, but I do know that even with just one....

any knowledge of others dealing with the same things helps!


How about you? What has been your greatest challenge as a Christian, wife, and/or mommy? How do you keep you walk consistent? What kind of books, resources, blogs, or websites do you go to for encouragement? Any advice, tips, and/or ideas for young moms who may be discouraged? What helped you to stick with your morning routine/quiet time?

Too many questions?! :)

Silly faces with mommy!

Pregnancy update: 25 weeks

How far along: 25 weeks

Countdown: 15 weeks

Size of baby: He's as big as a cucumber. 15 in, 2.2lbs

Maternity clothes: Still, the only clothing that I wear that is really maternity are my church/dress clothes. I pulled out the maternity skirt this week.

Movement: A little less active than last week. Sometimes it seems he'll curl up on my right/front and I'll have this weird bulge showing.

What I miss: Being able to do daily stuff without feeling EXHAUSTED by mid afternoon/early evening.

Sleep: Getting a little more uncomfortable. Surprised I've survived without my body pillow this far. I haven't had any crazy dreams like I did at the beginning. (that I can remember)

Symptoms: um....TMI: gassy.... I don't remember that from last pregnancy. And really sore back at the end of the day.

Cravings: I went to P.F. Changs the other night, and ever since then I've been wanting to go back for egg rolls.

Best moment of this week: Buying a double stroller. It's like a sit 'n' stand. It's a used, looks like new, Fisher Price Stand and Ride Duo Stroller.
(Picture from

What I'm looking forward to: Picking a name. We haven't really talked about it. We had a name that we've always liked way back when we were picking out Lincoln's name. So I think we just always thought of that name being this little one's name. I don't want to really SAY it out loud or type it out for everyone to see it yet. I'm still waiting...I think it's because we've had this name picked out for forever that it seems too unreal to actually have it become a REAL name!

Publix and CVS coupon trips, and MORE!!!! 3/1

I'm sure no one cares what this coupon shopping mommy does when she finds some good deals....and I'm sure, in fact I KNOW I'm not the best coupon shopping mom, so this is mostly for those few family members that are interested. (Or at least pretend to be...)

I love LOVE L.O.V.E. it when I can get ALL my shopping (and more) done in one trip without a child!!! I'm loving this once a week playdate thing that a friend of mine came up with! Thanks! ;) It's helped SO much, just by de-stressing my grocery shopping. I can actually coupon and take my time at it! WhooHooo!!! Sorry. I'm a little excited at what I got done today! :)

I went ALL over the place and made multiple stops to go to some places that I usually don't get at.

My first stop was Whole Foods. I bought a Groupon coupon last Sept. for $10 for $20 worth of groceries. I've never tried Whole Foods, and half off sounded good to me! :) I went over to get a few things we needed. Salsa, flour, paper towel, lunch meat, and some snacks. It felt nice at the register having to only pay pocket change! :)

Next stop was Target. I needed diapers and recently I was given some gift cards, so I really wanted to use them for the baby Rock 'n' Play from Fisher Price. I also had a $10 off coupon on the Rock 'n' Play. I know it's smarter to use your gift cards to buy products that give more gift cards. But seriously, I don't shop at Target that often, and when I do, it's for clothes for Lincoln. So....ya....Here's what I got.

Found this in clearance for $4.48 and I had a $1.50/1 coupon! (eight bars of facial soap for $2.98) Probably not that good of a deal, but we like Neutrogena and I don't get it much because of prices.
Target trip:
Total OOP: $17.60 (after gift cards)
Saved: $14.00
In my weekly grocery savings spreadsheet (that I found here at couponing101), I won't be adding the baby rocker into my grocery spending's.

Total oop: $8.10
Saved: $52.18
ECB received: $7.79
I ended up going to two different CVS to find gum. And still I was either overcharged, or I grabbed the wrong kind...but 2 packs rang up @ $0.99, and the rest rang up $1.50. I didn't catch it till I got home. I only had to pay $0.94 oop, so I figured, it's not worth it to go back...

Total oop: $33.08
Saved: $72.28
What I got:
4 Stouffers family meals
4 Bird's Eye Voila Meals
1 Mrs. Paul's fish sticks
4 Pillsbury Toaster Strudels
2 Pillsbury Toaster Scrambles
2 Country Crock butter
2 French's Worcheshire sauce
1 Coffee Mate Natural Bliss (I would've gotten more, but I ran out of ink for coupons...)
2 Glass Plus
*not pictured*
1lb of hamburger meat
chicken breast
1 Package of garlic pesto tortilla wraps

I also got some milk, fruits, and veggies through WIC.

Total oop: $20.25
(it was lunch time and I was shopping on a hungry stomach, so this is a little more oop than what it should be....) :)

Total spent: $71.40
I didn't add in the baby rocker in the total. I should also say the groupon coupon for Whole Foods was $10 back in September. So this week I was over budget with the total at $81.40

With some extra time to myself, I ran over to the My Child's Closet consignment sale. I will be going back on Saturday when everything's half off!
Can't resist the cute newborn summer clothing! Since Lincoln was born in the winter, I needed to pick up some summer stuff for baby #2.
Found some cute GAP shoes for Lincoln!
And that's my shopping for the week! I was pretty excited about it! Love the cheap frozen meals for days when I'm too tired to cook. I'm excited about all the baby stuff, :) and can't wait to dress him in these cute outfits! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
