currently // april

making: crockpot meals! All the meals I prepped before the baby came have REALLY come in handy, and it's so nice to be able to throw something in the crockpot once or twice a week and have dinner already taken care of.

wishlisting: some new work clothes. When I packed away my maternity clothes, I also cleaned out my closet of anything that was too old or just generally didn't fit well or make me feel good when I wore it, and that left me with surprisingly little in the work-wear department... Sigh.

cleaning: a little of everything. It's hard to get caught up, ever, with a baby around (shocker!) but we try to do a little here and there and keep up with things.

posting: more often, hopefully!

tasting: smoothies! I have been on a smoothie kick ever since having the baby, and have one almost every morning for breakfast. I include a scoop of Vega protein powder, and one smoothie holds me over til lunchtime (whenever that may be). Easy to make and easy to consume one-handed, which are basic requirements these days.

linking up with In Residence and Gold & Bloom!

YES to crockpot meals! I'm hoping to start stocking our freezer this month and get it new-baby-ready! :)

So smart to line up the crock pot meals ahead of time! We're beyond the little baby stage but still that sounds really handy. Happy April, and thanks for linking up!

I dont know what it is, but I just cannot handle smoothies in the morning when it is cold outside. It's like this giant mental block! But as soon as the weather gets warm, I'm all "bring on the smoothies!!!"

So bizarre.

I LOVED all the freezer meals I had prepared before having my daughter - definitely a life-saver! I've already started putting some together for when baby #2 comes along in a couple of months :)

Oh I love lining up crock pot meals! It makes life easier and then I have something delicious to look forward to all day long!

I need to improve my Crock-Pot game. I love them, but I can never think of what to make or I never have the ingredients I need on hand.
