Whats up Weekend {February 23rd }

What a week.  As the day does by, I can feel the stress of the week just washing away.  I am ready to be done with this week.  Moving on!

It wasn't really the worst week ever.  Wasn't the greatest either.  But it is over.  And I survived yet another week.  Can you believe the month is already about over?  Craziness right?  Before I get sidetracked, let's get back to Friday.  

I just love linking up with Lindsay, Charlotte, Beth and everyone else who links up every Friday.  Its so easy to get caught up in everything that goes wrong, but today is all about what went right!  No sense in starting the weekend off on a sour note.  Be happy.  And sprinkle that crap around like confetti.  The world needs it!

Having David and the hospital with me.  He doesn't get to go to a lot of my appointments, so when he does, it's always nice.  Plus he lets me sleep on him while we wait because it was way to early for me.

Taking the boys to the park.  David got to fly his drone.  Anthony tossed the ball around and Alex climbed on EVERYTHING.

The smell of rain.  I just love a good storm.  The light show was pretty insane around 4 am.  But I am very glad that it let up in time to get the kids to school with out getting soaked.  Now hopefully it doesn't start back up again until they are home!

Watching the boys swim.  Its been a while since we have been to the Y for a swim.  I sat with the boys while David went to the gym.  The plan was to read, but I just couldn't stop watching them play and laugh.  They might love to swim more than I do!

Finally starting a new book.  And not blowing through it in a day.  Even though I want to.  I have been trying to save it for reading before bed.  But I have crawled into bed in the middle of the day just to read a little too. 

Snuggling dogs.  They don't care to cuddle with me, but they sure do love to keep each other warm. I get such a kick out of all the ways they can sleep.  A 10lb chihuahua spooning at Great Dane... such a trip.  Tried to take a photo, but they moved as soon as I grabbed my phone.

The hospital staff was amazing.  The nurse that unwrapped me after my scan went nuts over my snake leggings.  So much that when I went back in for my second set, she was telling me that she looked them up.  

Morning chats with my Mother In Law.  Y'all, Grandma is the best.  I really did luck out in the IL lottery.  After talking for 2 hours, she texts when she got home to remind me to take a nap.  Love her.

Nailing down more plans for Summer.  I'm so excited.  The rental house is settled.  I will get to see my other Mom and Dad and some old Disney friends.  But we really need to sit down and make a list of things we really want to do.  Like Gatorland.  Davids not quite convinced, but I think he will be by the time we get there!

Being able to fix things around the house.  Last night after I dismantled my kitchen sink pipes, David told me how lucky he feels to have his very own Mario/Luigi.  We always joke because while we can be very traditional in our relationship, sometimes we throw gender roles out the window.  I get excited about tools and he gets excited about buying us all new shoes.  

Its supposed to be rainy and pretty miserable all weekend here.  The good news is that I really don't mind the rainy days.  That just means, we get to stay inside, read and watch movies.  And the usual, grocery shopping and running errands.  I am on the hunt for a new garbage disposal and yes, I'm actually really excited about that. 

Now it's your turn.  What are some things that made you happy this week?  What are you thankful for?  Be sure to stop by the Peaceful Posse Link up and see what everyone else is sharing.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Keep Mornings Simple with Jimmy Deans Simple Scrambles®

This post is sponsored by Jimmy Dean® Brand, but the content and opinions are my own.

Is it just me or does breakfast have the worst timing ever?  I know it’s the most important meal of the day but as soon as I wake up, I have things to do.  My guys may be early risers, but they are not morning people.  At all.  David is up, showered and off to work before anyone else wakes up.  The boys get up and dressed and are just sitting down as I am getting lunches ready.  And some days it’s a struggle to get them fed a nice hot breakfast before we are running out the door. 

Keep mornings Simple

The thing is, I love cooking.  And cooking breakfast is my favorite but during the week, in all that rushing around, there just isn't enough time.  David isn't a breakfast person to begin with and the boys can't handle waiting for sausage or bacon to cook.  But I have finally found a solution.  Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles®.  Not only can we have scrambled eggs, cheese and meat, but we can have it in two minutes! Simple, fast and hot. 

Easy breakfast

Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles® come with two real eggs and your choice of Bacon, Sausage or Meat Lovers.  And in just a few minutes and with easy to follow instructions, you have a hot and ready breakfast!  No bacon splatters or cold eggs.  Total breakfast win!

Quick Breakfast Options

There are no more reasons to skip breakfast.  Headed out the door?  They are perfect for traveling with you in their sturdy cups.  And they are the perfect serving size.  When I get back from dropping kids off at school there is nothing I love more than sitting on the back patio and reading for a bit.  And now I can have a hot breakfast too.  I know I'm not the only mom who can appreciate a hot breakfast.  Usually by the time I get everyone their food my place is cold.  Just another reason I love these Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles®.

Menu Plan Monday { February 19th }

Three day weekends usually throw me off and I forget all about my menu until Tuesday.  But I am on the ball this week!  Grocery shopping is done.  I cleaned out the fridge and prepped for the week too!  And my menu is good to go.

This week isn't a very busy week, but with today being a holiday and Wednesday being almost a full day at the hospital and teacher conference that night too, I want to make sure I know what I'm doing.  Otherwise, it will be a train wreck.  And Ive had enough of those lately!

  • Italian Chicken
  • Salads

  • Chicken Tacos

  • Pancit
  • Little Lumpia

  • Baked Pork Chops
  • Salad

  • Fish Sticks
  • Macaroni
  • Broccoli

I'm thinking as long as everything is prepped for dinner Wednesday, I will be able to come home, make dinner, pick up kids, eat dinner and head out for Alex's conference.  It should work.  Fingers crossed. David took the day off, so there is a chance we will end up in Best Buy, lose track of time and my plan goes up in smoke.  Not that Id ever pass up a trip to play with electronics. But still.

So lets talk about your menu now?  Is it planned?  Do you always say you are going to plan one and then never get around to it?  Whats stopping you?  Menu planning is life y'all!  Its about the only part of my life I have together at the moment.  I just need to find some new recipes to try out.  Feel free to leave me some suggestions below!
