If I Didn’t Have a blog…

by Meghann on July 27, 2011

A lot of my meals would look like this.

Leftovers. Straight from the tupperware. Classy.

I did add some spinach in before heating it up. The spinach added a little bulk and flavor to the dish. πŸ™‚

I hate to blog and run, but I have a date with this adorable face.

I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last saw baby Patrick! He’s probably so big now!

You know who else is growing like a weed? Baby Marley! We dropped by to say ‘Hello’ the other night and – let me tell you – bouncing her up and down felt like quite the arm workout. No wonder Moms have such great arms! I would too if I did that multiple times a day! Who needs free weights when you have a 10 lb baby to bounce?

That’s what most of my meals look like πŸ˜‰ Have fun!! Playing with babies is the best!

Haha! Patrick looks so adorable! Gotta agree with you on the arm workout, though babies would keep growing faster as time flies πŸ˜‰

I agree that blogging is great motivation to try to eat prettier food! Or in my case not eating the same meal over and over again πŸ˜›

Have fun with your baby visit! πŸ˜€

I know exactly what you mean! After creating my blog, now I’m constantly making sure my food looks presentable πŸ˜‰

Haha – I did the EXACT same thing yesterday. I just didn’t have the energy to plate it all out only to pack it up into Tupperware so I just took the pictures in the Tupperware! Sometimes, ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Baby Patrick is ADORABLE! Have a wonderful visit!

New moms always have such awesome arms! I feel like all my choices and food presentations are “for the blog.” We even request tables at restaurants by the window so I can get natural light. My boyfriend is slowly going nuts.

Absolutely nothing wrong with eating straight from the Tupperware—save a dish!

11 Meghann July 27, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Exactly! And I’m saving the planet by washing one less dish. πŸ™‚

Holding kids is an arm workout for sure! I work at a daycare and kids love when I toss them in the air… when you’re tossing a five year old around, your arms feel it πŸ™‚

Don’t worry, my meals are wayyy uglier than that! It’s rare for me to actually have something that’s not out of a bowl and all mixed up.

No shame in eating straight from the Tupperware container – I do it all the time.

Haha omg.. I have a blog and a lot of my meals DO look like that.. I try to show the prettier ones, on real dishes though. πŸ˜‰

Blogging has definitely made me think a little more about what I eat and how “pretty” it will look in pictures… so I understand what you’re saying! πŸ™‚
