To order take-out. Seriously. I just ordered enough take out to feed us for a week.

We're not supposed to be eating out at all. Today was grocery shopping day, but my van was parked far away from our door with my jacket and umbrella inside. Keep in mind that it was 30 degrees and POURING rain. So DH said I could order in and get the groceries tomorrow to keep Max and I from running through the cold rain.

I decided to order Chinese, but I couldn't decide what I wanted. So what'd I do? I ordered the whole stinking menu. Ok not really. But for two adults and a toddler, I ordered three meals, a pint of sweet and sour chicken and an order of Crab Rangoon. $30 some odd dollars, plus the tip when he gets here. I didn't even get drinks!

Holy cow. DH is going to shoot me with a bazooka when he gets home and sees all the food I ordered!!

ohhh I am soo soo sooo bad for NOT cooking lately. I feel really bad Espeically because I know my DD is not eating as healthy as I would like her to. But I'm usually not super hungry around supper and dont' feel like cooking. The past week or so I've also felt achy in the front of my pelvis and in my hips, espeically after being at work all day. So I don't wanna stand/work anymore when I get home. So we've been ordering in or I've been making DD soup, or KD, or natchos or buritos, or pizza's. Just easy stuff...but I dread supper time each day and feel guilty about not making homemade 'good for you' food.
(and I've never been that fond of cooking to begin with)

Oh I'm starving and jealous! We've been snowed in for days and I didn't go shopping before hand, to much snow to expect delivery I think and I asked DH who is finally back in town to bring home dinner tonight... of course here it is almost 6pm and he hasn't even called to tell me he's left NYC ( 1 1/2 hour commute) yet AAARRGGHHHH Enjoy your dinner!

We ordered an X-large shrimp fried rice, large Beef and Vegtables w/plain rice, order of egg rolls, large egg-foo yung, (6)crab rangoon, and we got a free large sweet and sour chicken to go with it for spending over $30!! Its not all from me though, BF wanted everything in large. Im about to eat now!

We have plenty leftover!

I ordered Pepper Steak, Honey Chicken, Veggie Lo Mein, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Egg Rolls and Crab Rangoon. I only ate one egg roll, three pieces of the sweet and sour chicken and a couple crab rangoon. Then I felt silly for ordering so much only to eat so little.

At least lunch is taken care of today.

I got mad at them though. DH gave me two fortune cookies, one for me and one for Meghan. Mine was pretty basic, something about seeing beauty in everything. But Meghan's was empty. I about cried.

Awww dont worry about it being empty.. Its a cookie...

I am with you though with the ordering to much... I ordered chinese on Fr iand I got boneless spare ribs, cheese wantons, wanton soup, pan fried dumplins fried on both side, orange beef not spicy, chicken chow fun and moosho pork..

Dh laughed being that I ordered all that for just 2 of us (3 plus the baby).. But he understands right now my eyes are bigger then my stomach..

So, don't feel bad your pregnant u can splurge as much as u like!!!

I know the feeling! I ordered 6 or 7 sushi rolls the other night for just DH and myself, plus some tempura. It was something like 50+ total pieces of sushi. And then I only ate a couple of pieces and decided I didn't like the texture of the rice that night.
