Menu Planning Monday! No, Really!!!


Seriously, one of the hardest parts of this whole pregnancy thing (aside from no alcohol and no deli meats) has been my inability to cook.  First, it was because of the nausea combined with pregnancy Super Nose.  I could barely stand the smell of cooked food, let alone stand the smell of cooking food.  Then there was the aversion to raw meat...yeah, that was less than fun.  That's still there to some extent, but I think it's at a manageable level.  At least, it is today, so I'm going to assume it will be this whole week!  Lol I know what assuming does...but we'll see how it goes!

This whole return to cooking thing is timely too!  Little Caylee is growing bigger every day!  And moving around like crazy!  Yep, I can finally feel her moving and I never get tired of it!  I can't wait until she really starts kicking the crap out of me so that Bryan can feel her too!  Plus, we generally save more money when I'm cooking and, at this point, every dollar saved will help when Miss Caylee makes her arrival.  So, without further ado, here's the Menu Plan this week!

MONDAY:  Meat muffins and veggies
TUESDAY:  Lasagna and veggies
WEDNESDAY:  Dump BBQ Jelly Chicken
THURSDAY:  Spaghetti and meatballs
FRIDAY:  Sushi.  Hey, California rolls are still fair game!!!
SATURDAY:  TBA.  Possibly our night out this week.
SUNDAY:  Pizza!

Caylee Magnolia

That's the name of our little baby GIRL!!!
She's growing big and strong, consistently measuring about 5 days ahead of schedule.  As of today's checkup, her heart rate is 161 and I'll be 20 weeks along on Saturday!  I can't believe I'm almost halfway through this pregnancy!  I actually pre-registered with the hospital today, which makes the remaining 4 month period seem amazingly short.

Bryan and I have started ramping up our efforts to get the house ready.
We've made a ton of progress cleaning out the nursery this week, which is a good thing seeing as it has served as our catch-all storage room for the past three years!  I still have about four boxes to go through and sort out things to keep from things to donate and Bryan has a couple more. 

The painting project that is our bedroom and bathroom should be done within the next week, and then we'll move on to picking out the paint color for the nursery and painting it!  We've ordered the crib and the mattress, and picked out the bedding.  I'm still playing around with ideas for closet organization in the nursery, and we're looking at several different options for the rest of the nursery furniture.  Needless to say, we've been very busy and still have quite a bit to do!  Of course, I know none of it compares to how busy we'll be once she's here, but I can't wait until she's done baking!

I hope everyone is doing well, and I'll try to do better about updating more often!
