A Necessary Date Night + How I grocery shopped this week.
First off, thanks to all of you who have bought one of my watercolors! I’m selling them on Instagram thru today and the majority of them will be shipped out this week. Some won’t be shipped until the following week, but they’ll get to you as soon as I can get ’em to ya!
On to our weekend…
On Saturday (to keep Andrew and I from biting each others heads off) we took my parents up on their offer to come watch Jojo while we went out for a date night. Having a baby has been the toughest thing we’ve done together. Well. Having the baby was easy, but life with the baby so far has been tough. Any words of wisdom are welcome :)
We went out to talk about how we’re feeling and what each of us needs to keep us from losing it. Some needed communication over margaritas. I feel like we still have a lot to figure out and all I know is that we will be making date night a consistent thing.
For dinner we got our usual…chicken & beef fajitas to split.
I’m starting to see clients again this week and am not loving how my maternity clothes are fitting anymore and my old pants don’t fit at all anymore…I feel like my hips are in a different location now. So after dinner we went and got me a couple more pairs of pants. This is my first pair of Madewell jeans and I’m loving them! I’m not sure what jeans they are, but they’re stretchy, sit higher up on my waist, and I find them really comfortable.
Sunday involved our typical church + tacos + latte combo.
For lunch, Andrew whipped up a frozen stir-fry my parents had left in our freezer for us, while I worked at helping Jo fall asleep.
Finished off lunch with some Justin’s PB cups.
As far as meal planning for this week…
I’m really loving using the curb-side pickup feature for grocery shopping. It’s stressful for me having to take Joanna to the grocery store. I know me and Jo can do it, but I’d much rather pay a bit extra for someone to do the grocery shopping for me.
What I really love about ordering groceries online is you can look and see what you have in your fridge/pantry and make meals out of that. This week I planned meals around these things we already had…
…and I’m making this meal from Cravings. My sister gave me Chrissy’s cookbook for Christmas and I think it’s great.
Hope ya make it a awesome week! Even if it’s just by doing something silly like buying ban.do Stickers for your planner hehe. I love my Day Designer planner, but miss all the stickers from the ban.do planners!
