Meal Plan Monday – 17th July 2017 + *Giveaway*

We did it! We have moved back into our house on Saturday and it feels gooooood. My parents were very kind to have us staying with them for so long, but we were all more than ready to get our own space back.

My mum took care of 99% of the cooking while we were at hers which was amazing. She has never really been one to meal plan, and I definitely found it a little stressful at times even though I wasn’t the one cooking! Back to normality now though, so back to the meal plans it is!

This week I’ve got some goodies to give away too as part of the blogiversary celebrations this month, so check that out at the bottom of the post.
