What's Up, Weekend? 12•6•19

Well, just like that, another week has come and gone.  The last month of the year always flies by.  I think anyways.  Its been a quiet week here on the blog but it was quite the opposite in the real life.  Lots of updates to come.  But for now. It's Friday and I am worn out.  I could use a dose of happiness and thankfulness in my life!  As crazy as the week has been, it wasn't a bad one.  At all!


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.

Menu Plan 11•25•19

Happy Monday everyone! I know I said I was excited to sleep in super late but of course now that the option is there, I couldn't do it. I was up at 8 so its still counts as sleeping in I guess. Also, I'm to excited to sleep. I have things to do. Its Thanksgiving break and my house is no where near ready for company.

Alex is off having the time of his life at a friends house and Anthony will be off to do his own thing in a little bit. Which works for me because I have a million + 1 things to do today then have a doctors appointment this afternoon. So here I am. Starting my morning with meds, coffee and some sunshine on the patio. I have a feeling after all my appointments this week and the next, all my diet, medication and exercise suggestions will become restrictions. Which will bring on a whole crap ton of changes around here. Oh boy. Hopefully it wont be to bad.


Another good thing about Thanksgiving week is I mean you really only need to plan a little menu because Thanksgiving dinner is the highlight of the week. Anyone else do that? Eat simple and basic all week because you know come Thursday you will probably eat more than you should. I'm just emptying out the freezer this week and trying to use up what is in there. So....chicken or fish.

What's Up, Weekend? 11•22•19

Hey Guys, Its FRIDAY!  Finally.  T minus 5 hours until Thanksgiving Break. This morning didn't start out quite like I wanted to but you guys, my heart was saved by my teenager!  I clearly woke up on the wrong side of the bed.  Its rare for Alex and I to butt heads and even though we cleared things up before he left, I still felt awful about it.  As I was trying to catch my breath Anthony reminded me that it will be OK.  And that I made it though all this with him already.  Then he reminded me of all the things I do right.  How can I feel like I totally failed and won in the same moment.  I love that kid! I want this week to be full of fun and happiness so I'm going to accept that it happened and do what I need to do to make it right.  After all, who wants to have an unhappy Friday?  Not me.

Menu Monday 11•18•19

Well hello Monday. Or should I say goodbye Monday.  Don't let the door hit you on the way out!  Or do!  Nothing today happened the way it was supposed to but its almost over so I'm just gonna be thankful for that.  Tomorrow is a new day!


If today is almost over that means we are one day closer to Thanksgiving break.  Im so excited!  But for now, Iv'e got my menu together and that might be the only thing I managed to have together today.  It's a start right?  Here is what we are choosing from this week.

Happy Friday Everyone!

This week has kinda just been one day crashing into another.  Well for me it has anyways.  I think most people call that one step forward and two steps back.  It was like every time I thought I was caught up, something would fall apart.  And now its Friday and Im walking in like Im being held together with duct tape.  Yup that pretty much sums it up.

Menu Monday 11•11•19

Well its been quite the Monday morning around here.  I just got home and figured I would get my menu up before I crash and take a nap.   I don't get out much so, an hour at the Elementary Veterans Day Ceremony, where we almost got sideswiped in the parking lot, and then an appointment and more lab work has me spent.  I literally can't stop yawning.  But I need to get dinner prepped, eat something, get laundry started and dishes done,  then I can lay down.  I should probably feed Koopa too.   There will be time for a nap, Im almost certain.  Certain-ish.


I have really been wanting to get back to the kitchen.  I miss trying new recipes.  Its a busy week this week so Im keeping it pretty simple.  I did plan out tonights dinner and Fridays too.  Just because they are the busiest ones.  Here is what's cooking up this week in my kitchen.
