Well, this post almost didn’t go up in time! But I worked super hard this morning and got it all finished for you.

This past weekend I went to New York from Thursday morning through Sunday night, without John and Allison. It was awesome just being Jaime, and they both did great while I was gone. However, it feels good being home and back on a normal routine!

John did the shopping and took the pictures for me; he’s so amazing! However, I made the mistake of not telling him we had a Sam’s Club gift card, so we’re over budget quite a bit this week. What I’ll do is do some of our regular grocery shopping at Sam’s instead this weekend, so that’ll even things out.

We’re still eating out of our freezer, which has been great! Slowly but surely we’re going through everything I made back in November, so that’s helping with our grocery budget and allowing me to stock up on a few needed items. Here’s what we got this week:
