Post Baby Survival Guide

So I have about five more weeks before our second baby boy makes his appearance. I am excited to see our family grow. 

But I am also a little freaked out because... well... I remember that having a baby hurts. But it's called labor for a reason. Right?

So in my preparation I decided I would make a list of what I consider necessities for getting through those days and weeks after the big push.

My tips on paying cash for a hospital birth

Last summer I wrote a post for Money Saving Mom about our experience paying cash for the hospital birth of our son

And since I am having another baby in a few weeks I plan on doing it again. Now granted our financial situation has changed a lot in the 17 months since our son was born. 

My husband has a better paying job. We have better insurance and we have built up our savings. 

But I still get questions from readers in similar situations we were in asking for tips. Click here for more. 


Easy Blue Cheesy Pulled Pork Taco

We love some pulled pork in this house. It really is the other white meat. The Senn family is not afraid of pork. And you shouldn't be either. (Said the granddaughter of a pig farmer.)

Last night I made one of Jason's favorites. My Easy, Blue Cheesy Pulled Pork Tacos. 


Homemade Bread Crumbs

Bread crumbs aren't the most expensive thing in the grocery store. In fact they are often on sale. But in a pinch you can make em yourself.

Meal Plan Monday 4-15-13

Good morning! Well, good late morning. We are geting a late start this morning. But that's okay. 

Did you have a great weekend? Jason and I went to the beach. We didn't do any swimming but we did have fun sitting by the water. 

My husband loves the water. 

So, here is our Meal Plan Monday. I am trying some new things this week and some old favorites. 

Monday: This amazing looking Baked Sphaghetti I found over at Passionate Penny Pincher. 

Tuesday: BBQ Pork Tacos in the crock pot. This is a simple recipe I will share later this week. 

Wednesday: Cheesy Sausage Tortellini I found this recipe on Pinterest last week and made it. Oh my. It's so good I am making it again. 

Thursday: Chicken quesadillas

Friday: Pizza night and fruit salad
