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!

Menu Plan: September 18th

And just like that its Monday again.

Im still not sure if the weekend was a win or a fail. Did we have fun, yes. While Anthony went to a friends house, Alex and I went to the pool with some friends. We stayed behind after they left to practice his swim breathing. Of course he wasn't super interested, so we dried off and played at the park instead. Its been way to long since its been just the two of us having fun. David picked us up later and took us out to dinner.

Sunday included a quick trip to the Zoo, watching the Cowboys get spanked and then grocery shopping. Confession time. I didn't cook once this weekend. Thats why I said it was a possible fail. My kitchen is usually a wreck come Sunday night, but not this week.

But the menu is tasty, so theres that. Mondays are for fresh starts right? So lets just forget the mess of junk that was this weekend and focus on the menu!



The Clubhouse Tenders are a rollover from last week that I did not get around to making. The Zucchini Enchiladas and the Chicken Pad Thai are my new recipes of the week. And I am super excited to try them both. I have actually never even tasted Pad Thai yet, but everyone seems to love it, so fingers crossed that we do too! 

Whats on your menu this week?  Are you trying anything new?
