Throw Away Lunch

Here is my attempt at a brown bag lunch. My son has a field trip tomorrow. I didn't have any sandwich size bags because I quit buying them so it was tricky. From left to right, chex mix (I know, not really healthy but not doritos either), PB and J rolls on whole wheat (this was my way of fitting a sandwich into a snack bag), blueberries on 'skewers', a few carrot sticks, and a fruit leather. I still don't know how I am doing drink bc I don't have any juice boxes. I hope to get water in here some how.

This is what has been taking up all of my time lately. I turned my boys sandbox into a raised garden. I finally planted this weekend. YEAH! I have no idea what I am doing so say a blessing over my veggies. I hope I get something. I have tomatoes, cucumber, red pepper, bean, carrots, and strawberries in the bag.

Muffin Tin "Saturday"?

Working full time only gives me the opportunity to give my little one lunch on the weekends. He has been peering over my shoulder lately to see what I am looking at on the computer. Last night he says please make me one of THOSE! Well this afternoon we made one.

Hard boiled egg, orange wedges, blackberries, tomatoes, ice water, and a PB sandwich cut out like a bird.
Not bad for my first :)

Way Cool Night - "Scrap the Schedule"

My son and I decided to scrap our schedule tonight and have a lazy night. We put our pajamas on as soon as we got home. Instead of rushing through dinner in time to get to karate and an art show at his school, we watched TV, ate mac -n- cheese, baked cookies, and played video games. It was nice to just be lazy and not rush around. We needed it!! Hence, time for a blog post.

This was yesterdays lunch inspired by Melissa at Another Lunch. I am not sure I even come close to doing this justice, but I tried. I am also really jealous of Melissa's pictures (they are so clear and bright). I am trying to convince my husband that we need a new camera.
Lunch is... PB & J on my homemade puzzle piece (no cutters :(. My first checkerboard apple, which was much easier then I thought, tomatoes, and butterfly crackers which I was so happy to find at Wegman's and even more happy that they didn't have ingredients that I didn't like. YEAH!

Biggest Loser

Im not sure if I could cry more when watching Biggest Loser. I am not overweight nor is anyone in my household. But I try so hard to have us eat healthy and at times I feel like the world is against me. I just want my kids to live long, happy, and healthy lives. Is that too much to ask?

a week already

I can't believe this week is over. Now it is mother's day and I feel swamped. I knew May was going to be crazy but it had only just begun. I am hoping to get things in shape to have time to blog too but it remains to be seen. I did pack soup and sandwiches this week and my son bought once too. It was a funny story because he thought his lunch was leftover from the day before so he didn't eat it and he bought :)

This is Crazy

Yesterday my son had a turkey sandwich, tomatos and dip, strawberries and a cheese stick. I have no picture (sorry :(. Then after school was CHAOS. I had a Zumba class (which is a way fun way to exercise), and my son was with his father at baseball practice. He left his backpack and lunch pail in my classroom so this morning I has to put together a lunch in a different bag. IT WAS THE ONLY THING MY SON HAD TO REMEMBER TO BRING WITH HIM THIS MORNING!!!! I just found out he forgot it. I am soooooo mad right now.

Vent over!
