Menu Plan: December 10th

Mondays got jokes!  Alex is home sick today.  Saturday night our community had a tree lighting ceremony and I think it was just to much cold for the poor guy.  We took pictures with Santa, took a horse and carriage ride around the community and we were out.  But not soon enough it seems.  Le Sigh.

So after a night of up and down with the sick one, and a pretty decent morning with a moody teenager, I'm trying to get my day in order.  I have made the dogs food for the week and bagged Koopas food for the week too.  I made English Muffin Bread for the humans.  Grandma and Grandpa brought Alex a care package of soup, gatorade and extra medicine.  I love them something big!


But while I sit and make some phone calls I figured I should write my menu out for the week. I started this at 9 am and its almost 5pm now.  I meant to do this last night and be ahead of the game but I was busy on a cleaning kick.  Then crawled into bed with a book.  But at least it's done.  I might end up changing a few things around but for the time being, here is this weeks menu!

Lights, Lemons and Late Night Talks

I woke up yesterday thinking it was Friday and was very disappointed.  But today, TODAY is Friday!  And good grief am I happy about that!  It has been one hell of a week and I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend with my guys!  Nothing makes me happier.


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!

TBB Asks: The December Edition



I love these link ups from The Blended Blog.  And here we are with a Holiday Edition!  

1.  Candy Canes? Yes or No?  Yes Please!  I love candy canes.  Peppermint is my favorite but the flavored ones are good too.

2.  Christmas morning early riser or sleep in?  This is a trick question!  Id prefer to sleep in!  But I have kids who get up before the sun on Christmas morning soooo...

3.  Did you shop on Black Friday?  Yes or No?  Not a chance.

4.  Christmas Tree up in November? Yes or No?  Yes!  Just after Thanksgiving this year but when we have a busy holiday season I have been known to get the tree up earlier.  I think Christmas decorations make Thanksgiving that much more festive!

5.  Do you get Holiday Ideas from Pinterest? Yes or No?  I get the ideas, but I am awful about following through LOL

6.  Christmas Glam or Ugly Sweater?  Im not a very Glam kinda girl.

7.  Stocking Stuffers:  Wrapped or Unwrapped? Unwrapped

8.  Traditional or Modern Christmas Songs?  Traditional.  Nat King Cole plays all December long!

9.  Fruitcake? Yes or No?  Ive never actually had one but it seems most people refuse it so Im gonna take their word for it. 

10.  Is your Christmas Shopping Finished? Yes or No?  Not even close.

11.  Is there Snow in December where you live?  Once ever so many years, but just a sprinkle.  Last year it was still on the ground in the morning and we were able to make a snowman but it was gone by noon the next day.

12.  Classic Show: A Charlie Brown Christmas or Rudolph? Rudolph!  Charlie Brown is great but I mean that Rudolph is magic!

OK so my tree is up, the outside lights are up and there are a few presents under the tree. I think most of the rest are all Amazon shopping and what ever else we find while we are out and about.  The boys went easy on us this year with their wish lists.  Mostly because they have both for the most part out grown toys.  The only problem is toys have been replaced with video games, electronics and specific clothes so...

Happy December Everyone. I hope this month is filled with so much joy and happiness. How many of you made the nice list?

Menu Monday: December 3rd

I had a plan.  Go to bed early.  Wake up feeling somewhat alive.  Be happy and cheerful and send the boys to school before having a very productive day.  Well, about that...

I ended up wrapping a few presents.  Then David got home around midnight.  Next thing I knew, it was 130am and I was yawning. I laid in bed for about another hour just staring at the fan.  And then 5:45 hit me like a 18 wheeler.  But, I was at least for the most part cheerful and happy this morning.  Until it was time to go and no one was ready.  But before that I was winning.  UGH!  Mondays!


I also meant to get my menu posted last night but got distracted but its planned.  Its not the prettiest menu, but we are still adjusting to David popping in for dinner before leaving and Im trying to make meals that I know will be quick enough yet not to light because by the time he gets home again, hes ready for bed and for the life of me I can't ever convince him to eat breakfast, so...  Here is what made it on the dinner menu for this week!

Christmas, Candles and Clean Teeth

It's been quiet around here.  Is it weird that when everyone around me is going holiday crazy I tend to feel calm and quiet?   This time of year things slow down and I try to get ready for the new year.  Can you believe it's almost December?!  2019 is right around the corner y'all.  Before we know it it will be Summer Time! Oh, just saying that make my heart happy!

Menu Plan: November 26th

I wrote out October instead of November.  Yup, it's one of those days I suppose.  The first day back from Thanksgiving break and I'm a hot mess.  Theres so much catching up to do and all I really want to do is catch up on sleep.  Even though, that's the last thing I should do.  I should probably start with laundry.

It was a quiet week around here and an almost equally quiet week here at the house too.  We like to enjoy our breaks to the fullest and with David home this week, we did just that.  We made plans then changed them and stayed home instead.  We probably had way to many snacks and slept in way to late, but that's what vacations are for right?


Thanksgiving cam and went faster than I could take a picture.  Grandma and Grandpa came over and Auntie Buger and Cameron.  AKA my little sister and her fiance.  There was food, pie and a late night of cards and laughter.  But now that we are back to reality, it's time for a real plan with more veggies and less dessert.  So here is whats on the menu this week!
