For over a week now the HUBS has been gone on Navy business and will continue to be for another week. That leaves the Babe and I alone to do as we please. I thought splendid this will give me a lot of time to craft and blog, HA HA I applaud all the single parents out there because I don’t know how you do it. The Hubs and I are a team, I am with her through the day and then he helps out in the evening and then gets up with her at night. Without him home I have had to do it (not to mention she is teething and totally missing him) all.

Yesterday I finally had the energy to get some BIRTHDAY items crossed off my list but I’ll wait to show those in a birthday post since most of the items I am just taking from other people. But also because I’m having that feeling of ‘will this be enough, shouldn’t I make more decorations, what will people think, look at that party on pinterest, I can’t do that’ yeah it hasn’t been fun. But I need to remember to stay true to myself and show the Babe that her momma is a crafter but at heart she is a reuser, reducer, and recycler!

So this week I have been having to cook on my own and eat on my own and I’m not a FAN… but here are a few recipes I have tried…

crock pot chicken parm.

Loved this one! It was so easy to get together, but I have to say it is not what I expected. What I mean is that the chicken fell apart easily and I’m used to the original, but it was delicious.
