Whats up Weekend: October 20th

Yesterday kind of got away from me so here I am, sharing my Friday post on Saturday.  While I also write up my grocery list and wait for the washer to stop.  And hopefully I can get it all done, before David gets back from getting an oil change.  We shall see!  Then maybe we can get out and get some fresh air because I have been stuck in the house all week and nothing would make me happier

Whats up Weekend

Speaking of happy, today I'm linking up with Lindsay from The Flynnigans, Charlotte from My Pixie Blog and Beth from Coffee until Cocktails.  Every Friday we share all the things that we are happy, grateful and thankful for!  Stop on over and see what everyone else is sharing today! Here is my list for this week!

H.E made me do it

The plan was to go back to sleep after the boys left for school, but the house next door is getting a new roof and we are on day two of nail gun heaven.  Lucky me.  I tried to read but that's not working.  I had an omelet. That just made me nauseous.   Everyone is always telling me that the like how I can always put a positive spin on things or how I always see the silver lining.  Some days are more graceful than others.  And some days I lose my shit.  It happens.  Today might just be that day.

I think technically that day was Monday night, when I pretty much broke down mid Kitchen clean up.  I was trying to hard to hold it together.  I'm usually a wait until everyone is sleeping to cry kinda gal.  David figured it out and ended up hugging me until I was done.  Then he helped me finish cleaning up and listened to a few more colorful outbursts, wiped away a few more tears and sent my butt to bed.  I didn't fall asleep until after 2am.  I got a whole 3 hours of sleep that night.


For a few minutes I thought depression was creeping back into me.  Its always been around.  Worse at times, but throughout the most part of my sickness, I have been able to push through that darkness.  I have been able to focus on the good and the light.  Anxiety yes, depression, not so much.  But this felt like something more.  Something stronger.  And then it hit me.

Menu Plan Monday: October15th

I feel like all my Monday posts have started with "I can't believe its Monday already!"  But seriously, how is it Monday already?

Yesterday we were sweating our butts off and I woke up this morning to a nippy 53 degrees.  And its not just cold, its wet and cold.  This is what I was worried about.  This is why I hate this time of year.  But I said I was going to embrace it so I'm putting on my big girl undies and getting on with it.

Menu Plan

Today I have to do lab work for two different doctors and then I'm coming back home to hide from the cold under my blankets until its time to get the little kids from school.  My menu is planned and todays dinner will be perfect for this change in weather.  Whats on your menu?  Here's what we have lined up for the week!

Halloween snack time fun with Mini Babybel® Cheese

This post is sponsored by Bel Brands USA & Mini Babybel® Cheese, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Fall may have started a few weeks ago, but Halloween is what really kicks it off for us here.  The fun of picking out costumes and those sneaky toy spiders that make their way around the house, and scare me every...single...time!  Ahhh, yes.  Halloween is full of fun!

My babies aren't babies anymore.  Even the lure of candy and fun can't raise their spirits but I am determined to fill this month with spooky silliness and I know just where to start.  Can you guess what it is?  Its food!  When in doubt, get them where it counts!  Snack time is getting a Halloween make over.

Lets have coffee

Most mornings (and some nights) you can find me out back with a book and mug.  And while I usually enjoy the quiet and alone time there are days where I wish I had someone to take up some of the space too.  If you have a few minutes, join me!


Lets have coffee!  The gate is unlocked and I'll be out back on the patio.  The coffee is free, the kitchen is self serve and yes you can come over in your pajamas!  Just let me know your coming so when I hear the gate unlock I don't think someone is coming to rob the place.
