Happy Friday!


I am so ready for the weekend.  Work has been crazy this week!

I am excited for tommorrow morning...I get to go shopping!  Now that hubby is back to work, I can go get my son and I some Spring duds.  B is growing like a weed and at 20 mos old he is ready for 3T!  There is this awesome consignment sale going on called Kids Closet that I am going to go to.  Hubby is going to watch B so I can actually think while I shop ;-)  After that, I am going to stop at a nice consignment store and look for some Spring clothes for me.  All my Spring clothes from last year are 2 to 3 sizes too big! 

On the Lap Band front, I got a fill on Tuesday and I think I may finally have it my sweet spot.  I can only eat about 4oz of food and it lasts me for 3-4 hrs.  I finally have to be really careful about chewing.  The negative is I PB'd for the first time :-(  Not fun but you live through it.  I have already lost 3 lbs since Tuesday!

Lately, I have been really into cooking.  I love making new band-friendly recipes and trying to make them family-friendly.  I have been scouring cookbooks in the evening and actually find in relaxing!  I am really tired of not getting dinner on the table until 7:30pm - it's just too late for my toddler.  So, last Saturday afternoon I made 5 meals and froze them.  We have ate them all week and have been done with dinner by 7pm!  So I'm going to make my grocery list and try to do the same for next week. 

Does anybody have any easy band-friendly freezeable recipes to share?

Have a Good Day!

Totally of topic...Cell Phone advice

I am attempting to join the technology age and I am shopping for a smartphone.  I am so confused by the options....

My account in with Verizon and I have narrowed myself down to a HTC Droid or an LG Ally (or Vortex).  Both operate on Droid applications.  Does anyone have any advice and has anyone been able to coordinate thier Microsoft Outlook (the e-mail and calendar) with thier Droid?
