Menu Plan: September 25th

Well then!  Monday got here a lot faster than I was hoping for.  One minute its Friday night and the next think you know Mondays is busting down the door. And as much as I want to just drop the boys off and go back to bed, there is just to much to do. I might as well make the most of it!
Things are going to get a little interesting around here this week.  I can't spill the beans just yet, but lets just say there will be one more mouth to feed for a little while.  Something tells me that this little surprise is going to keep me busy all week and that Friday will be here in the blink of an eye. I can't wait.

You know what else I'm excited about?  This weeks menu. There is a little big of everything on here. And not one, or two, but THREE new recipes to try this week.  Not sure what I was thinking when I did that but the shopping is done.  The menu is locked in!

Last weeks Pad Thai was good. But it made me crave Thai and my favorite dish that I always order, so we are starting the week off with Pad Woon Sen.  I am praying its even just a little close to what I get when we eat out.  I guess I will find out tonight.  

Street Tacos because its Tuesday.  Wednesday I am making the Zucchini Enchiladas that I didn't make last week.  The zucchini at the store were looking pretty pathetic last week. This week there were much better!

Thursday morning I will get the chicken marinating for this Sweet Chili Chicken.  After all the thinking of Thai food, I guess this is what happens. I love sweet chili sauce. And they guys will be excited to have a break from chicken breasts. Yay for drumsticks!

And just like that it will be Friday.  The day where we pull out what ever is left in the fridge and finish off the leftovers.  Of course if there is any noodles left from Monday, I call dibs. I just love Fridays.  

How do you feel about leftovers?  Yay or Nay?

Friday, Fall and Funny Boys

Last night were were getting packed up for swim and Alex said "Hey Mom, don't you think this week kinda went by really fast?"  Yes, son, yes!  And this morning he was singing his Friday song as he shoved eggos in his mouth.  I'm so glad one of them is a morning person. And today is extra special because

Fall is my second favorite season. But after this summer and it's crazy heat and wild weather, I'm might have to swap the two.  And even though we all know that it takes a little while for the south to catch up with Fall, we are that much closer to some cooler weather.

But for now, let's just focus on the fact that it is Friday and that means it's time to share some happiness.

I don't want to jinx it but the boys have been getting along really well.

We finished up another session of swim lessons.

A quick trip to the Reptile House.

My labs were in range and I have a 4 week recheck.

Riverdale.  Binged it and Im kinda hooked.

Cuties.  I just can't get enough of those little oranges.

Gifts left on my front door.

Living next to my Best B. My sister from another Mister!

Buying things for myself. I'm horrible at this.

Planning a date day with David. I can't decide what to do!

Talking to my sisters. As crazy as we are, I love them.

I finished another book. Although I'm not sure a book about Liver Disease should count. I guess so right? The start of every season seems to be when I take a good look at my health and refocus. Which I really need right now. I am so tired of feeling so tired. I lost my balance, so time to make some changes. Again. For someone who hates changes, I seem to always be making changes. I'm not sure if that makes me want to laugh or cry. No, I will laugh. Because change is a happy thing. And because it's Friday. There is no crying on the weekends. I choose to be happy.
I have no idea what we are up to this weekend. I was trying to convince David to take me to the Zoos Croctoberfest. I figured beer for him and fun for me. But I'm not quite sure I'm up for the crowds. Maybe we can get the boys to the park or to the pool to get their energy out but then retiring to the couch for a movie night sounds about right to me. 

What made you happy this week?  Who made you happy this week?

I know its supposed to be wordless, but after uploading these photos, Im so bummed that they don't look anything close to what they do on my phone (Note8). I love the camera but for some reason between there and here, they lose the crispness and I LOVE THE CRISPNESS!  Ive tried resizing and sharpening, but so far no luck.  Ill figure it out eventually. Happy Wednesday!
