LAFMB :: 10 Tips for Going Back to Work While Breastfeeding

The post I'm re-sharing this week is one that is near and dear to me, especially since I pumped for a year and nursed for 18 months total.


LAFMB :: Sometimes I Need to Give My Husband a Break

You might have guessed it, I decided to start sharing what I write for Lafayette Moms Blog over here as well. 

Click the link at the bottom to read my post about how even though I might not say things to my husband I am still thinking them... and it's just as bad. 


Meal Planning Monday

I know I'm late, it's been a weird week already.

Better now than never... because a few weeks from now I'll be wondering what on earth I want to make and will be scouring my previous meal plans.

Monday - Eggs, Sausage, Berries

Tuesday - Spinach Salad with Grilled Chicken, Salami, Goat Cheese, Walnuts, and Cranberries

Wednesday - Beef & Broccoli with Rice <link>

Thursday - leftovers

Friday - Chicken Nuggets with Oven Fries & Salad <link>

Saturday - eating out

Sunday - Wraps with Chips 

Back in college I used to work at the best little breakfast and deli dive. This wrap is inspired from one of the wraps we sold there and it’s SO GOOD. It’s not “clean” as it has some not so healthy pretzel bits in it but let me tell you, it’s 100% worth it. Scroll to see the ingredients I love for these. The none GF members in our fam just eat regular soft tortillas! All you need it a wrap of your choice, honey mustard dressing, honey mustard pretzel bits, provolone cheese, shredded grilled chicken, super thin sliced cucumbers, lettuce, and tomato. Layer it all, wrap it up, and enjoy! Happy Friday Eve, friends! For GF you will need to leave out the pretzel bits. Glutino brand does make a GF honey mustard pretzel stick though! #atableforseven #glutenfreedinner #chickenwraps #snyderpretzels #deliciousdinner

I somehow contracted the virus from my child.

I say somehow, but I know clearly how. The how is that I always catch this mess 3 fold and Jeremy runs off unscathed by the diseases passed in this house.

So there was no meal planning post this week.

In fact scrolling social media posed a problem because it appeared at the exact moment my life began to end everyone took a hiatus from posting about their kids and uploaded a shot of their dinner.


So what has my week looked like outside of the bathroom?

Yesterday I couldn't bare the idea of leaving bed so I actually looked for sub. Today I couldn't bare the idea of looking for a sub so I took my stomach cramps to work.

In case you were wondering... this is where teaching sucks. Finding a replacement is impossible. All the planning that goes into not being at work isn't worth it. I'd almost assume die in that classroom than attempt to find a sub most times.

So yeah, I haven't cooked dinner. I haven't posted about cooking dinner. I haven't even thought about what I want to cook next week for dinner.

All that to say... I didn't vanish this week. I'm just in the bathroom eating rice and trying to not die immediately.
