Meal Plan: Paleo Challenge Week III

Hi there! I'm going to start off this meal planning post by not talking about meal planning or paleo! Gasp, shock. Yes, something unrelated and random seems to be the norm around here lately. Today, it's our almost house. Hubby, the Toddler, and I did another walk through yesterday, took measurements and shared ideas with each other. It was actually a lot of fun to start visualising what we want it to look like. And we met a future neighbour who said that there are a lot of children in the area. Yay!

The actual point with this house talk is not only to express how excited we are about starting on our mammoth project, or rather actually living there, but to say that I realised that there are a lot of little projects I should be working on in the meantime. Whereas my husband is super handy and will be actually fixing the house, I also have loads of little crafty projects I want to get done to make it home-y. It's not like I'll be able to repair the ceilings, but I can certainly DIY a pretty canvas with a family portrait or repaint our bed frame. So, I want to get started this week. 

Given the massive amount of time I have been spending in my kitchen since the start of the paleo challenge, I am determined not to that again this week. It's also been unbearable hot with no air conditioner, and I just can't bring myself to spend hours testing recipes again or keeping everyone's food preferences in mind. I'm keeping it simple, making leftovers by doubling recipes, and I will be enjoying my extra time. Challenge accepted!
