Friday Five

1. Virtual Baby Shower

I recently had the most amazing and thoughtful baby shower hosted by family and friends back in Florida.  Well - I should say, they were back in Florida, while I was here in Princeton!  It was a virtual shower, and I literally FaceTimed in, as all my friends ate, drank, and opened gifts for our baby girl!  More pics to come, but here is a snippet :)

2. Visit from Parents 

My mom and dad just drove up this week, bringing the gifts from the shower, spending time with Andrew, and doing lots of "baby prep"!  They have been wonderful, and such a huge help!

3. NYC Babymoon

While they were here, John and I jetted off into the Big Apple for the weekend to celebrate the last month before baby comes!  We had so much fun and basically ate our way around the city :)  Lots of that, and sitting on park benches because every other block I had to stop and rest!  Walking around 8 months pregnant in New York City is no joke! 

4. First Haircut

Because Andrew's hair was getting a little unruly, and because 99% of people think he's a girl when out in public, we decided to utilize my Dad's hair-cutting skills and do a little trim this week.  It turned out to be a pretty big trim (his first one!), but I think it looks so much better :)
Even though I miss his curls already!

5. Meal Prep - Frozen Breakfast Burritos

With the help of my parents (see how much they did this week!?), we started completely stocking my freezer with meals and snacks for when baby #2 arrives next month.  Lasagnas, soups, casseroles, scones, and more!  Today I whipped up some breakfast burritos, and they were so quick and easy! 

Here's my recipe:

1 lb ground turkey
1/2 packet of taco seasoning
8 eggs 
1 box frozen chopped spinach
1 tbsp minced garlic
salt and pepper
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
10 fajita flour tortillas


Cook ground turkey in large skillet over medium heat. Add taco seasoning and 1/3 cup of water. Mix, remove, and set aside.  Scramble together eggs, frozen spinach, salt and pepper, and garlic in same skillet. Cook through.  Add cheese and ground turkey to egg mixture and mix together until incorporated.  Remove from heat.  
Fill tortillas with egg mixture, evenly distributing among 10 tortillas (I didn't measure but maybe 1/2 cup for each one).  Wrap tortillas up tightly, with no openings for filling to fall out.  Wrap each tortilla in plastic wrap before placing in freezer bag. 

When ready to eat, microwave 1 minute and enjoy! 

Hope y'all are having a wonderful week!

Love that you guys were able to sneak away for the babymoon and how stinking cute are Andrew's curls - I can't even deal! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

I'm so jealous of all the good eating you did in NYC! Andrew's curls are the cutest thing and I was actually thinking the other night how I hope our baby boy has some curly locks, even if it does mean he gets told he looks like a girl! I need to get on board with the meal prepping myself!
Ally- Life as I know it

First off, how sweet was that virtual shower? What an awesome day! & how adorable are you in those NYC pictures?! Love that jacket so much.

Also, so awesome I came across your post today because I was JUST looking yesterday for a breakfast burrito recipe I could use to make frozen burritos for during the week. Definitely, definitely making these!
