A Day in the Life of Suz Steece

As you know, there are many various stages of life. We have been through the fun dating life, young married years, small babies craziness, etc. Right now, we are currently living in the "fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants-running-100-mph" stage. With 6.5 year old quadruplets in Kindergarten and extra curricular activities, life can get crazy busy! But it is an absolute blast and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I thought it would be fun to take you through a typical day in the life of Suz Steece.


It's a mad dash to get everyone up, showered, fed, packed and out the door for school. A certain 4-legged furry buddy likes to come along for the ride!

 

 

 

 
 
 
Next up, I head to my wonderful job as a surgical nurse. I LOVE my profession. It is a physically demanding job and many times I am exhausted by the end of the day- but it is totally worth it.

 

 
 
 
I leave work to pick up the kiddos from school and we hit up the neighborhood park because it is an absolutely gorgeous day! 

 

 
 
 
We are a very active family and love spending time together outside.

 

 

 
 
 
We head home and start on homework. Every day the kids write out sentences using their spelling words, then they take turns reading to Mom. (2 books per child, times 4 kids~ it takes a good 30-40 minutes, folks!) 

 

 
 
 
Starting to get nervous that I haven't prepared anything for dinner, but then I remember that I have a Stouffer's Family Size Lasagna in the freezer! SCORE!!! Now, I can pop it in the oven for an hour and go play outside with the kiddos!
 
 
 
Andrew & Ethan were pretty excited too!

 

 
 
 
 
I don't know about you, but I'd much rather spend my time enjoying the beautiful weather with my babies than be locked inside, cooking for hours in the kitchen.

 

 
 
 
Never a dull moment...

 

 
 
 
 
A scrumptious, warm meal is ready when Dad gets home from a long day at work. (and I barely had to do anything!)  In case you were wondering, This is what it looks like to prepare dinner for 6 hungry humans. YUMMMMMMO!

 

 
 
 
 
With the weather as beautiful as it has been this spring, our family LOVES to enjoy meals outside on the patio. Great food, good company, what could be better? CHEERS!



The lasagna was a huge hit, y'all. If you haven't tried Stouffer's Family Size Lasagna, I highly recommend it! 

Since 1922, the Stouffer family has had a vision to provide high quality, home-style cooking with a "clean, fresh taste" and that is exactly what you will get when you try these 2 products.


Stouffer's Lasagna with Meat & Sauce Family Size
Serving Size: 5
Cooking Time: 34 Minutes (Microwave), 70 Minutes (Oven)

Stouffer's Lasagna is topped with fresh cheese and aged Parmesan that browns at 375 degrees. It is packed with quality ingredients like freshly made pasta laid by 
hand, real mozzerella, vine-ripened tomatoes and NO preservatives.



For all of you meat lovers out there, Stouffer's also has a brand new lasagna:


Meat Lovers Lasagna Family Size
Serving Size: 4.5
Cooking Time: 24 Minutes (Microwave), 65 Minutes (Oven)

The same lasagna people know and love with Italian Sausage, Ground Beef, and Pepperoni. Stouffer's tested 35 variations to get the perfect recipe. 

Try it out and let me know what you think! You can win a $100.00 Visa gift card!

This lasagna is a LIFE SAVER. I don't get home from work until after 6pm and my littles (3 &4) go to bed at 7:30... There is NO time to be slaving over dinner in our house!

Your life seems crazy wonderful! I also have 4 little ones so I know how chaotic things often become! We love Stouffer's five cheese lasgna since we don't eat much meat! Mmmm! It's our favorite!

I love that you posted this because we had my father in law over on Friday-and guess what we had-Stouffers Lasagna! I didn't have time cook after working all day on Friday, and this was perfect with some bread and a quick Caesar salad. Love it!

It's a small world. I saw your blog on Pinterest and decided to check it out. I am currently pregnant with quads. My husband and I just moved to Wichita Falls TX on military orders and the hospital there wasn't equipped to deal with us. I am now on bed rest at Harris Methodist in Fort Worth and Dr. Bannie Tabor is the one delivering our little ones. I recognized your picture because he brought the one from the hospital in here for my husband and I to see. I was so happy to see someone with quadruplets that looked so healthy! It gave us a little more peace of mind. I am 24 weeks and 4 days now and just taking it day by day. I just wanted to say thank you! Your picture gave us hope. :)

I have tried stouffers mac and cheese and would love to try their line of lasagnas!

Lish said...

I used to each that every single week in college. I'd cook it up on a Monday and eat it all week long. Yummy, quick, and a heck of a lot easier on my waistline than fast food. :)

ellie said...

Stouffer's has saved me precious time over the years. Time that I spent playing with my boys instead of slaving in the kitchen. We love the lasagna and also their mac n cheese!
