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.

Menu Monday: October 8th

I'm getting a late start to this week.  Three day weekends always throw me off.  Yesterday I kept forgetting that it was Sunday and I didn't even put in my grocery order until this just now.  Yup, total slacker over here. 

Today the boys and I are just hanging out at home.  Anthonys working on a project, he "forgot" was due TOMORROW!  Alex is trying to play his video games quietly so I forget that he needs to come out of his room and eat at some point.  And I have a ton of things to do.  The house is a little out of sorts and the laundry is a little out of control.  Plus I have some writing to do, pictures to take and a video to make.  And its already past noon.  I supposed Ill get to it.  But first, about that menu...

Whats up Weekend: October 5th

OK October.  I see you.  And yes, I will give you a little love.  Confession, I am starting to remember some of the things I used to love about Fall.  I find my self smiling more, which is nice because I though I was doomed to be blue for the rest of the year.  But most everyone I know is happy that its Fall and happiness is contagious!


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!
