Its been a busy week!! My parents came up for the weekend and my mom helped me start making freezer meals. I thought one day would be enough time for both of us to work on a total of 10 meals but it wasn't! It turned into a 3 day project as I kept adding more meals and sides to my list of things I wanted to make. Between my mom and Jacob helping we were able to make a total of 18 different types of meals. Most of them were split into at least two servings so we have over 30 meals already prepared. I made sure to put them in disposable foil pans so they can be put directly in the oven and tossed out afterward. It was waaay more affordable than I thought as well--totally worth all the time. They will come in great use while I am on bed rest as well as when I come home and things get crazy. I hope this is something we can continue doing in the future to help reduce choas.
The other picture from the side bar was taken after a wedding of Jacob's cousin. I refused to buy a maternity dress so luckily had a stretchy one in my closet!! The days of squeezing into even my looser and baggier clothing are almost over--the bottom of my belly is starting to hang out of my longest shirts and even some maternity ones I have borrowed from friends.
