Its a new year!

After a what seemed to be a forever long 2-week Christmas break, Miss C finally went back to school yesterday. It was a little challenging explaining again and again to a 4 year old how she had about more than 14 sleeps to go till school. She did have fun staying home with Daddy though, who was also on their annual 2 week shutdown during the holidays.  I'm glad to be in the swing of things again; but this month will be busier than ever since my boss raised my hours at work (yay!!!) back to 40 hours.  So things will get prioritized and some things will have to take a backseat.  Unfortunately, less cakes will be on the schedule the next month or 2, depending on how long I stay busy at work.  More hours mean I have to either work through lunch or take 30 minute lunches (instead of an hour) so that I can leave work before it gets too late.  On the plus side, I have to get serious on packing lunches for myself as well!

Miss C's lunch: chicken and noodles (leftover from a Hibachi restaurant)
lemon poppyseed muffin and oranges.
In hindsight, she could have used more veggies. oops. 
I also wish it was more creative for the first day back of school. 

My lunch: same leftovers with a salad and oranges

Mommy's and Daddy's Lunch:   Grilled pork chops over green beans grilled red potatoes and grapes

I don't really care if my husband gets teased about his lunches. I don't think he does either. He rarely eats lunches, so when he was participating in the Crossfit Open last March, he needed to maintain a healthier eating routine, I was a little more giddier than he was to pack his lunches too. I didn't take many pictures of them, since he didn't care much for presentation, but with EasyLunchBoxes, it was easy to arrange the food in different compartments.

Last weekend, he participated in a mud/foam run in Chicago with the some of the athletes at our Crossfit box. It was a 2.5 hour bus ride each way, so he needed to pack lunch and a post-race dinner.  Of course I jumped on that opportunity to pack his lunches too. :)
