freezer meals and my week

We move to Mexico in 35 days! I'm a little stressed. And the past few days it has really gotten to me. It's so easy to turn inward when you are having a hard time and just focus on what will make me happy and what do I want right now. And doing that will make you even less happy and more stressed out. I know because that's what I've been doing and it sucks. I pledge to stop it. Or at least stop a little.

As I said earlier things have been a little crazy.
I'm having a yard sale this Saturday so I have been going through all our crap stuff.
We bought plane tickets to go down to Guadalajara at the end of this month and find our house!!
Amron has been working the night shift a few nights a week. And I love sleeping alone. That's a lie.

I made freezer/crockpot meals a few months ago and loved them! It's so easy; cut everything up, put it in a bag, put in the freezer, then the morning of throw (place) it in the crockpot and it will be ready by dinner time. SO simple. And one less thing to think of during the day. Or in my case one less thing you aren't doing and feeling guilty about.

I found these recipes on this blog from pinterest.

Mom and Paige came over tonight and helped me put these together. So I got to make dinners for 2 weeks and had adult conversation, 2 birds with one bullet.  

Went to Joe's Farm Grill today. Look at those cuties. They're even dressed. Because pajama's do count; sorry about the footies in 100+ degrees Max. 

Also something a little stressful; the kids got hand, foot, mouth disease. It's kind of like chickenpox. We took the babies into the urgent care when they got little red bumps all over and weren't sleeping good. The next day Graham ran a fever all day and then the next day he got the bumps. So we have been home snuggling a lot. 

And Max and Sadie got their passport pictures taken.

We rode on Papo's quad.

I really didn't use my "real" camera.

Except! To do a photo session with the Lowe's!

And I've been "trying" to eat healthier. I'll spare you the details of my on again off again ways. But I got this "Tropical Green Smoothie" at Whole Foods and have been making my own. And they are tasty. And if I let the babies drink out of my cup they will drink it all up!

  • 2 hand fulls of spinach
  • 3 leaves (stocks?) of kale
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 can coconut water

And if you read all of that you are probably my mom, Amron, or bored.

  1. Lol ! Funny thing is I am never bored when I read your blog ...I Love It ! Brooke , my kids all have that same thing right now Hand , Foot and Mouth and I am wondering what did Urgent care do for your little ones. I am considering taking them to the Dr. but since it is a virus I don't know if I should or not. What did the Dr. say to you about it ?
    I am totally going to try that smoothie that looks Delicious !
