I decided to give the whole freezer meal thing a go. If it's even semi successful, I'll post what recipes I used and how I went about my meal prep. I'm a little concerned because most of the recipes require 6 hours in the crock pot, and I'm out of the house way longer than that for work. I'm considering just throwing these in the oven immediately after work, and letting them cook for an hour or so. Or maybe cooking them on low, then having my crock pot timer switch them to warm until we get home. Does anyone have any experience with this? Advice appreciated!
In other news, our weekend went well. Friday we went down to the UC football game with friends. I had a girls night with my best friends on Saturday. We played Kings, made up the rules we couldn't remember, and danced like fools at the bar. It was great. I love having friends who are easy to relax and have fun with. I also love that even though I'm an hour from home, 3 of my high school besties ended up living just a few minutes away. It's pretty amazing that life has allowed us to remain so close. Sunday = Jungle Jim's and brownie baking.
Now, for a couple good laughs. Am I the last one to hear about #StarbucksDrakeHands? Not sure, but this is hilarious. And creepy. You can search YouTube for the original, but I find this guys commentary on the situation much more amusing.
Last but not least, I saw this on Facebook yesterday. Kids are just too much. Anyone married and/or with kids will defiantly appreciate this list. Taken from dailynewsdig.com
A group of young kids were asked how do you decide who to marry and here are the results which are pretty amusing.
HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
(1) You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
- Alan, age 10
(2) No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.
- Kristen, age 10
WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
(1) Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
- Camille, age 10
(2) No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married.
- Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age)
HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
(1) You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?
(1) I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.

- Theodore, age 8
(2) It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
