2 months!... seriously?!

Clearly moving and having 3 kids under 4 (one of whom is a 2 month old) is not conducive to frequent blog posting. :) oh well!

So Lizzie is 2 months now (well, if we're being truthful, she's 10 weeks now, but lets pretend I actually posted this 2 weeks ago).

What activities did Lizzie do during month 2?
Attended her first wedding! (and rehearsal dinner)
Visited the new house (MANY TIMES)
Went to Disney World
Attended 3 birthday parties and one surprise baby shower
Went to Busch Gardens
Stayed in the YMCA's "Kidzone" while I returned to the gym
Attended a Junior League Meeting

How is Lizzie sleeping?
Goes to bed between 9 and 10 and wakes up between 5-6... this mama is quite pleased!

What "skills" has Lizzie mastered?
drinking from a bottle (yay for date nights!!)

Plans for month 3 include...
Officially moving into the new house
Going to Busch Gardens again
celebrating sissy Charlotte's 4th birthday at the park

{Pinned there, Done that} Valentine's Edition

Happy Valentine's Day!
I had high hopes of making the girls some new heart doily painted shirts like I did last year...
... but I waited until the day before assuming I had leftover doilies from last year and as luck would have it they are no where to be found and neither Joann Fabrics, Hallmark, nor party store had any left. Woops...
The girls will be wearing last years again IF they fit :)
Teacher Gift:
"You deserve a hand" with a soap and small hand santizier in fresh picked strawberries from Bath and Body works
 Class Valentines:
"I'm so glad we're in the same school"
Pinterest Source... BUT I found a free printable that I edited at I heart naptime

Weekly Meal Plan #54

Back to weekly meal plans! Hubby has been gone for the past 3 weeks at an Army Career Course (yes... he left me with a newborn, not to mention the other 2 toddlers. Good timing huh?). One of the upsides was that I got to make breakfast for dinner... multiple times. Hubby doesn't like breakfast for dinner (I know I've mentioned that before here... and yes, I still find it weird). Also, I didn't have to make a new meal everyday, the kids are just as happy with leftovers, so score!

But alas, hubby has returned so I am back to making meal plans!

Corned Beef Potatoes, carrots, and Cabbage

Taco Night (ground beef is on sale)

Jambalaya (either a slow cooker one I've made before OR Ina Garden's recipe)

Salmon (sale) with a Honey mustard glaze

 Hearty Italian Soup

The girls are flower girls in a friends wedding so we will be at the rehersal dinner!!
