The latest happenings at Nutritioulicious, this week’s Link Love, and Menu Plan Monday!
Hope you had a great weekend! Last week was a doozy for me – I was so excited to get the year started by sticking to a better work schedule, getting to sleep at an earlier time every night, and being more relaxed all around, but of course life got in the way. My children’s babysitter was out with the flu all week, so that meant double duty trying to get my work done and take care of the kids. I have to say it was not easy and the kids watched more TV than I would like to admit. I give major props to all you moms who work and take care of the kids without any help at all.
Last week was also my little girls’ 5th birthdays! I cannot believe they are five years old. When they were born and I was in the throes of sleepless nights, breastfeeding, and everything I needed to do to muddle through the day to day of life with newborn twins I never thought I would say that they are growing up too fast, but alas here I am saying just that. They had a super fun birthday, including their favorite lunch (nut butter apple sandwiches) and dinner (Creamy Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Pasta), cupcakes on their actual birthday, a Paw Patrol-themed gymnastics party and ice cream cake yesterday, and lots of gifts.
