LOW CARB FREEZER MEAL UPDATE #2

I know, I know--- It's been awhile since my last freezer meal update post. But honestly, I have been for-real-cooking again! We STILL have freezer meals in both freezers, but I am saving those for days when we are in a pinch and need an emergency quickie meal.

QUICK VALENTINE'S DAY CRAFT

This past holiday season, Todd, Selah, & I were blessed with TONS of Christmas cards. Seriously. Our little card display filled right up in no time, AND we kept getting an influx of cards after the New Year! So thank you all for sending love our way. One of my favorite parts of the season is getting cards from friends and family near and far. Unfortunately, we did not get any cards out this year. We got family pictures taken in the fall and never got the images back (insert sad face). Plus, we figured that sending out birth announcements in the early fall was good enough for us this year. (Darn postage!)

DIY BABY CHRISTMAS TREE HAT

I was sooooo excited for our baby's first Christmas! I saw this adorable hat on Pinterest and wanted to make my own for Selah... but alas, I was lazy and didn't feel like knitting one from scratch.

DIY "MY FAMILY" BABY BOARD BOOK

Wowsers! I haven't posted in awhile again. I think trying to post once a month is about as good as it's going to get right now in this stage of my life. Anyways- I have an exciting and fun little project to share with you all! And yes, it is baby related, of course. :)

LOW CARB FREEZER MEAL UPDATE #1

Todd and I were so blessed by our amazing friends who brought us delicious home-cooked meals for the month of August. I don't think I had to cook even once; it was so helpful! I could really focus on our little one and catch as much sleep as possible. This month, we definitely broke into our freezer meal stash that I had prepared back in mid-July. (You can read about that and get all the recipes and tips here.) Here is an update of the recipes!

ANNOUNCEMENT & NURSERY REVEAL

Well hello! Another long hiatus from blogland. I know I say this every time but I really do have a good excuse! :) We welcomed Selah (pronounced "say-lah") Lynn into the world three whole weeks early on Wednesday, July 22nd. We are a little bit biased but we think she is absolutely perfect. (For those that know me, I was really ridiculously worried that she would be... well, ugly. No worries! Just like I said, perfection!) She was born weighing six pounds, nine ounces, and was nineteen inches long.

LOW CARB FREEZER MEALS

And we are at 36 weeks, as of this past Tuesday! We are going to the doctor's every week (and sometimes twice a week!) just to make sure everything is going okay and the baby and I are healthy. In the meantime, I have assembled several freezer meals for post-delivery. We plan on using these after the baby is born and the inevitable day that I go back to work. Boo.
