menu plan + new hair

I am really trying to get back on the ball with menu planning. I've learned that life gets a little more hectic with an 11ish pound bundle of love around. I feel like I am finally in a pretty regular routine with Grayson as far as eating, playing, & sleeping goes. **Sidenote--baby bootcamp is going well! He is eating every 4 hours now during the day & we are still trying to drop that second night time feeding. However, I've learned that the earlier he goes to bed, the longer he will sleep. He is now doing a 5 hour stretch for the first half of the night! I'll keep you updated..** Since I am feeling more organized and capable of getting a dinner on the table with a baby around...here is my menu:
Monday: Steak bites a la Pioneer Woman (so good!!), green beans, & mashed potatoes
Tuesday: White Bean Chicken Chili
Thursday: Chicken parmesan bites, roasted garlic cous cous, sauteed zucchini
Friday: Paula Deen's chicken stir-fry over white rice
Saturday: Steak fajitas with marinated corn salad
Sunday: Baked chicken & mashed or baked sweet potatoes

I got my hair did this week! Grayson had been ripping it out in handfuls & it was taking way too long to dry in the mornings. I decided to chop off about 4-5 inches! I'm hairexic so this is a big deal. Right now I love it...but I'm sure I will be missing my long hair in a few weeks:) That's how it usually goes! Does this mean that I now have a mom cut if I chopped it to make life easier?
