Menu Monday FB
I don’t know about you, but I for one am SO GLAD that January is over.   I don’t have anything against January, necessarily, but this year I’ve struggled with a lot of sickness and coldness and blah.  Therefore, I’m happy that the month is over.  Have you seen the meme that talks about how January was just a practice month for New Year’s goals?  Well, I can’t say I agree completely, because I’ve been consistent on working towards my […]

Weekly Menu Plan and Goals


happy birthday
Happy Monday, friends.  It’s time for the weekly menu plan!  But first…   This is an emotional week for me – my daughter is growing up, and is officially a teenager!  WHY can’t we run away to Neverland??  I have to say though, I’m so proud of the young woman she is becoming.  She’s beautiful, and more important, she’s a kind person who always looks for (and finds) the best in others.         We’ll be celebrating her […]

Wow, I can’t believe it’s November already.  I know I say that every month, but man..the days sometimes drag, but the weeks and months fly.  It’s crazy!   I have to admit, I’m already getting pretty darn excited for the holidays.  My kids both have winter birthdays, so I’ve been doing birthday shopping as well as Christmas planning.  I usually start doing holiday shopping in July-August, so that I can spend a little each month instead of one big expensive […]

Menu Monday 11/02 – Weekly Meal Plan


Friends, I do hope you’ll forgive me.  I will be taking a hiatus from the blog for an unknown amount of time, while I focus on my health.  I do have some giveaways in the works, and will continue to bring you those as often as possible, but things will continue to be slow over here for the next few months at least. In trying to improve, I’m working hard on reducing stress…and man, it’s hard!!  I do know that […]

Boy oh boy, it’s been a week.  I didn’t have a menu plan last week and it showed.  My poor kids.  I never had anything planned for dinner!  I’m hoping to do a better job this week.  I know that having things organized and planned in advance is a huge key to keeping up with life as we know it!   I’m adjusting to the new “life” I’m living being a full-time employee.  It’s still crazy busy, and I’ve got […]

Menu Monday – Weekly Meal Plan and Goals Sept 21


A new week is here, along with a holiday weekend for those of us in the U.S.A.   I assume you’ve heard the saying, “The days have dragged, but the week has flown by.”  That was this last week for me.  Every day at work was hard, and I found myself in tears multiple times.  I kept thinking I couldn’t survive another hour, and then suddenly, BOOM!  It’s the weekend.  I had planned on getting caught up on things around […]
