Love It!

Posted by TEAM PARKER at 3:05 PM 0 comments Links to this post has been my obsession since Reese arrived.  We arrived home from the hospital on a Sunday afternoon and Monday morning, I began getting emails stating "so and so is bringing you a meal on X day".  I had never heard of this online meal registry, but my friends had!  Shelley was so gracious to set it up for us and then sent messages out to several of our friends, where they could pick a day, sign up, and then another email was sent to me notifying me what day they were coming.  The process goes like this:

Step 1: Sign up by creating a free account using your email

Step 2: Create a meal calendar complete with a list of favorite foods, gift card options, contact information, maps and directions.

Step 3: Choose friends and family to e-mail that will help make meals, deliver food or purchase a gift card to a local restaurant.

Once you know what you're bringing, you can also enter that into the calendar so all the others bringing meals don't repeat the same fare.
We sure enjoyed all of our meals--6 in all! Thanks everyone for pampering us and giving us some extra time to enjoy our little lady!
This is also a great tool to use if you know someone having surgery or even in times of sympathy.  I will definitely be using it in the future!
