Here I Go Again...

Remember back in February when I said I was "back in the saddle?"  That was a lie.  Who was I kidding?  Pregnant.  New job.  Need I say more?

So now it's August.  Baby B is 3 months old.  I've returned to work, and it feels like a combination of I never left and I'm new all over again.

But...I'm really proud of myself.  I planned our August menu before returning to work, and we (mostly) stuck to it.  See picture (isn't it so beautiful and organized?)












Some of my closest friends are new moms either returning to work for the first time.  And, if I can help them, or you, with that transition just for one minute with this blog...I will do my best to keep adding to it.

So, here's my attempt (again) to start blogging and posting again.  

Here is what we ate this past week, I'll do a separate post for next week.  Also...if you do not get your groceries delivered.  You should seriously look into it.  SERIOUSLY.
