    Sawyer Street- Sawyer’s 1st Birthday Party!

    I feel like I’m so late in getting this up but life has just been crazy lately! Planning this party was so fun and I got to work with some awesome businesses and shops as well! I gave myself about 2 months to plan the party and that ended up being plenty. I did a lot of it myself and couldn’t be more please with how it turned out!

    We had the party on a Wednesday afternoon which was kind of a bummer. We originally had it planned for that Saturday but Krutis’ request off at work got denied! And his schedule for the month was already set in stone at that point so we just had to go with a day he did have off that also didn’t interfere with our family vacation and Wednesday was the only day that worked. So, unfortunately, a lot of people couldn’t make it, but we ended saving lots of money on food! Ha. We also held the party almost 2 weeks before his actual birthday because we were going to be on vacation for his actual birthday!

    First up, the theme!

    But I have so much to share now that I’m back and I can’t wait to get started. I”m starting off by sharing some of my meal prep tricks!

    If you follow me on snapchat (@katielovelyy) you probably see me meal prepping every Monday. It’s a whole ordeal but it makes the rest of the week so much easier! I still follow a mostly paleo diet (80/20) and  meal prep makes it easier to stick to. Kurtis, however, doesn’t follow paleo as strictly but does like to eat well. So I meal prep for both of us. Here’s what I usually meal prep:
