Menu Plan Monday: September 26th

And just like that September is coming to an end.  I'm telling you.  Once Summer is over, the rest of the year just disappears.  I'm really hoping that October stays for a while because I'm not ready for the holidays yet. I am ready for the week though.  Got my fridge emptied, food prepped and menu planned.

Monday:  Chicken Alfredo Ziti.  

Tuesday:  Street Tacos

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Tuna Casserole

Friday:  Sloppy Joe's


Hit my steps 4 times this week.  It's rainy and I'm thinking 4 days might be a stretch.  But I'm going to try! The weather is supposed to be nice so maybe I can squeeze in a walk after dinner one or two nights this week and take the boys to the park.

Take my meds EVERY morning. I've been struggling with this but it seems I have no other option.  They make me feel so awful, but in the long run, I need them.  Every day, not just when I think I have time.

Get my labs done.  For real this time! I keep saying this but I'm out of time and really need to get it done.  I'm interested to see my results too.  I have been feeling so drained.

Buy myself something.  I know I'm not the only one who hates shopping and buying themselves things. But then I realized how sad it was that happy I was excited about new socks.  David is always trying to buy me stuff, but I always say no. So this week I will buy myself something.

What's on your menu this week?  What are some of your favorite fall foods? I was going to make a big ole batch of clam chowder this week but I haven't been able to have much dairy lately.  A big warm bowl would be perfect right now with this rainy weather we are having!  Boo!

Happy Monday Yall.  I hope everyone has a great week!

Exploring Kriser’s Natural Pet Store #HappyHealthyPets

Sponsored Post:  This post is sponsored by the pet-loving pack at Kriser's Natural Pet, but all content and opinions are my own.

National Dog Week is coming to an end today.  Not that that means any of us will stop celebrating our dogs. Am I right?  Our pups are loved and spoiled year round!  Last weekend we went on a little adventure.  We had planned on taking one of the dogs with us, but Chico the Chihuahua wasn't feeling well enough, PJ the foster pup isn't quite ready for the adventures and there is no way Poncho would leave Chico behind. So we decided to check it out ourselves first.

Kriser's Natural Pet San Antonio

The minute you walk in to Kriser's Natural Pet Store, you know you have found something special. Everything is perfectly organized making it easy to find what you need right away.  But the store has such a relaxed atmosphere that you find yourself wandering around looking at all the great products they have to offer. And they really do have everything you could need for your four legged family members.  The best part is that it is all the best of the best.  Natural and healthy!

We were welcomed by the "Kriser Pack" and were blown away at just how knowledgeable they are!  When I brought up Chico's current issues, Pack member Cyndi went above and beyond to help us.  She showed us all our options and explained why they were the better choice. And she even gave me a sample pack of food to try so we can figure out which one he likes best because she understands just how picky chihuahuas can be when it comes to food.  Not only do we want to keep him healthy but happy too!

Kraiser's San Antonio

The walls are literally lined with dog food.  Every kind of food you can imagine.  Dry kibble, canned, dehydrated and even a refrigerator filled with raw food choices.  Plus a few frozen treats too!

The boys were amazed at the canned food options.  They also now want me to try pheasant, rabbit and buffalo dinners.

What I loved most about Kriser's is that I felt so welcomed and valued.  We were never rushed.  I felt like I learned so much in just the short time we were there.  After talking to Cyndi about a harness, David is already talking about going back.  But has already told me that Poncho is coming too.  Coming from a guy who is always let down by customer service, Kriser's has impressed truly us.  And that in itself is worth the drive up there.  Our pets are part our our family.  And now Kriser's Natural Pet Store is a part of it too!

Menu Plan Monday: September 19th


Well that was fast.  One minute it's Friday and then Monday just kinda sneaks up on you!  Like a surprise party you really don't want to have!  But what can you do right?!  As much as I didn't want to get up this morning, and no matter how hard I tried to convince David to come back to bed, the work week is here.

The boys were actually getting a move on this morning.  I did have to fix Alex's hair before he left.  He was looking a like Donnie from The Wild Thornberries.  Did I just date myself there?  Oh well.  My first stop after dropping the big kids off was to check on a friends pets.  I'm gonna miss my mornings with them.  And my lunches and nights too.  But thankfully I am blessed with my own little circus to worry about too!

PJ the Foster Pup is doing good.  Hes such a sweet little puppy.  Come back Wednesday for a Wordless Wednesday Puppy!

And since we kinda slacked this weekend, I need to get to the store and buy some food before the little bottomless pits get home from school.  Seriously, how much food can 2 boys eat?  All the foods!  Here is what's cooking up in our kitchen this week.


Monday:  Chicken Parmesan and salads.

Tuesday:  Arroz con Pollo and beans.

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Meatloaf with roasted potatoes and veggies.

Friday:  Baked Salmon with brown rice.


Fix the brakes on my bike.

Pack lunches all week.

Get the new Nest Cam set up.

Hit 10,000 steps everyday.

Cut the grass.

Did anyone do anything fun this weekend?  We didn't do a whole lot.  We did explore a new Pet Store. More on that later.  But other than that, we kinda just hung out.  Guess we will have to step it out next weekend. Wishing everyone a great week!  Stay busy and pray the weekend gets here quick!
