Five on Friday

{ONE} Weekly Meal Plan -- I have been on a meal planning kick. Trying to eat healthier, waste less and not pick up as much take-out. I usually just plan our meals and write my grocery list on my phone but think I'm going to start using this printable meal planner. Love the idea of hanging it up so B can add anything he needs! 

{TWO} Chopped Thai Shrimp Salad -- And this salad is absolutely going on my meal plan this week! How amazing does it look? And love the homemade dressing. Cannot wait to try.

{THREE} Bento Lunch Box -- I don't know what took me so long to jump on this bandwagon, but I am all about some bento lunch boxes. I ordered these last week in an effort to try and spice up lunches for my picky little eaters. We have been in a rut my friends. Guess what, the boys LOVE them! Stay tuned for a post next week on all the lunch combos we've been trying, including polenta pizzas!

{FOUR} Pantry Organization -- Have you started Spring cleaning yet? I don't know if it's Spring cleaning or just nesting, but I have been in organization mode around our house. Did you see my post on our pantry project? Check it out for some affordable storage bins and jars. Next project up, my closet!

{FIVE} Maxi Dress -- And speaking of my out of control closet, this lovely maxi is now hanging in there. My ASOS dresses came in this week and luckily the one I posted about for the ACMS is a winner. Sadly, the others, not so much. My mom actually sent me this maxi she spotted at Target, and I love it! The picture does not do it justice. The best part is that it's not maternity and will look great preggers and after the baby comes. Highly recommend this dress if you are pregnant or not!

  6. Love love love the pantry! I need to get some containers to store some things in vs just having on shelf. Takes up way too much room!

  7. I cannot meal plan for the life of me! We get Blue Apron meals delivered to our house and it makes life so much easier as far as food prep! Ever heard of it?

  8. We would probably starve if it wasn't for meal planning! It's the only way I stay motivated to cook dinner, ha ha! That is the cutest organizer for meal planning!
