Super Easy Holiday Craft with a Baby

What a cute idea!

Italian Chicken

Italian Chicken


1 small onion, diced

4oz frozen baby spinach

2 15oz cans of tomato sauce

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup honey

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon Italian seasonings

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 pound chicken breasts

1 gallon-sized plastic freezer bag


Combine everything in a labeled freezer bag. Remove as much air from the freezer bag as possible, seal, and lay flat in your freezer. Pour thawed contents of freezer bag into your crockpot. Cook on “low” setting for 4-6 hours, or until chicken is cooked through. Can be served over rice or noodles.

6 months

6 months

I can’t believe that I have made it 6 months. It’s an adorable baby bump, if I do say so myself. Darling Hubby is constantly rubbing it like a Buddha statue. N has starting reading to her which is beyond adorable. She’s moving and kicking all of the time now which is amazing.

It is getting harder for me to move around as I get bigger, but I feel pretty good. I can also go out on occasion now. Before, I only left the house to go to the doctor because I was so sick. I was vomiting almost constantly, sometimes without any warning. Unsurprisingly, tossing my cookies in a bucket in public is frowned upon, even in the lobby of a doctor’s office. Since I am visibly pregnant now, I have gotten some hate from people who don’t agree with it. It hurt my feelings the first few times, but now I see it for what it is —ableism and ignorance —- rather than a critique on me personally. The sad truth is that some people are so full of meanness and self loathing that it just spills over to those around them. They have my pity because that must be a lonely and miserable way to live.
