Menu Plan

One thing I'm trying to get back on track with is menu planning. I always used to try to plan for a whole month and I think for us that's just too long. Too many things change and it doesn't work. So this is the rest of this week and next week.


Mexican rice, homemade refried beans, avocado, and chicken either for a taco salad or a burrito.


Creamy tuna cauliflower bake


Spinach enchiladas


Bacon and cheese frittata I am substituting the sausage for bacon.


Grilled chicken and oven fries


Chicken ranch pizza


Sloppy joes and homemade hamburger buns


Birthday party


PW chicken spaghetti


Go out to eat

I usually have an egg sandwich in the mornings and I try to make up big batches of breakfast burritos for Eric to grab before work. Lunches are easy because we usually both take leftovers or just have sandwiches.

14 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 14 weeks 1 day
Size of baby: Size of a lemon!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: According to the doctor, only 1 1/2 pounds, but according to my scale it is 4 1/2. I have to remember I had a vacation in there where I ate what I wanted!
Maternity Clothes: No, they are all still too big, but my pants are getting tight so I need to get some jeans soon.
Gender: ???
Movement: Not yet, but I constantly poke around on my stomach trying to make him move so I can feel!
Food Cravings: A lot of salad and soup. Meat isn't really my favorite right now, which is funny because I actually really love meat.
What I miss: I miss having energy! But it is getting better.
Sleep: Pretty good. Have some weird dreams sometimes!
Symptoms: Not really any morning sickness anymore so that's nice. Just tired!
Best Moment this week: Went to the doctor on Monday and heard the baby's heartbeat again! It was strong and healthy!
What I am looking forward to: Finding out if this baby is a boy or a girl!
