The Lovely List

Just when I feel like I’m back in the swing of things around here, we are away again. It’s just a short trip. You’ll barely notice I’m gone. In the meantime, here are a few things.

First things first, Shelly is having a baby girl! I am over the moon with happiness for her. What a lucky baby to have a mama who is such a gifted chef! Darling Ilke suggested we have a food-related babyshower for Shelly with our suggestions for freezer meals. It’s a fabulous idea, right?

When I was pregnant I froze lassagna and kugel. I also used this easy frozen burrito recipe from Shutterbean too.

What about you? Do you have some suggestions for Shelly?

Above is a picture my husband took of me 2 years ago when I was pregnant with Maeve.

Also, did you catch my list a while back on essentials for baby? I updated it recently.

Speaking of little ones, wouldn’t you be proud if this was your daughter? She is going to change the world or school lunches or both!

This week, I’m also loving this amazingly gorgeous M.F.K. Fisher book.

Such sweet earrings. And, more coveted earrings.

I love summer sandals like these and these.

Putting kids to bed is at once hilarious and exhausting.

A foodie’s guide to eating on the road.

I will see you all very soon. Congratulations again to Shelly!

    You were the cutest pregnant lady- love that bump shot! And thanks so much for the recipe recommendations- the lasagna looks amazing. I love a one dish recipe that provides more than one meal. I checked out your baby essentials- I’m going to look into that carrier- we’ve been exhaustively researching and have heard many conflicting opinions. Thanks again for participating in my virtual baby shower- you ladies are the best!

    Sounds like a freezer is definitely a pregnant girl’s best friend! Great ideas for freezer friendly meals from one mommy to another. Nice to meet you through this virtual shower for Shelley:)
