Whats up Weekend? 5•24•19

I made it!  Last week flew by so I wasn't surprised at how slow this week has crawled.  But that's all over now that its finally Friday!  And even though I have an itch in my throat that I'm hoping goes away and doesn't fester, because its going to be a busy, fun filled weekend. 


When I am around to link up with the always amazing Lindsay, Beth and Charlotte from the Peaceful Posse its always a good day!  Taking the time to reflect on the last 7 days and look at all the good, despite all the bad is such a good way to let that crap go.  Nobody has time for that, so lets just take a look at all the things this week that made us happy and thankful!   Here's are a few of my bits of happiness.

Menu Plan: 5•20•19

Let's start the week off with a show of hands.  Who is ready for the week?  Who is not?  I am not even close.  I may or may not have gone to be with dishes in the sink.  The boys were lucky I stayed up late to get their laundry done.  The dogs are a mess and I have to leave the house in a little bit for an appointment and labs.  But my menu is done! 


Yup.  This is about all I have going for me at this point.  If I show up to the Dr with matching shoes and my clothes on the right way, it will be a miracle.  The boys went to bed early but were restless all night long so they were dragging tail this morning.  David was running late and took the wrong lunch.  And I still haven't been to bed yet.  By the time I get back from the hospital I will be time to get dinner started and the chance of me squeezing in a nap before we go get the kids from school is little to none.  And this is exactly why I plan out my menus.  So even when shit hits the fan, there is something I don't have to worry about.  Dinner!  Here is what made the menu for this week.

Menu Plan: 5•13•19

Its Monday!  Yes, again!  But theres nothing we can do about that now, so I'm determined to get this week off to a good start.  Both boys are nose deep in their STARR tests this week, so if they are giving 100% so can I!

Hope Whispers Menu Plan

This weeks menu is a pretty good mix of things.  It moved things around a little bit when the Birthday Boy suggested going out for steaks for his birthday.  But it's his day and he gets to pick so we are rolling with it.  Lots of man food this week!  Check out what else made it onto the menu this week!

May Goals and Mantras

April was a bit of a bust.  One, minute it was Hello April and the next thing I know its May!  There was a lot going on for everyone but we got through another month and I am going to take that as a blessing.  And if it's May, you know what that means right?  Summer break is right around the corner. But for now, it's a new month with new goals.


I have been doing a crap job at writing out my goals and sticking to them, but there is no time like the present to try again right?  So, I put together a few things I want to get done this month and a mantra to get me though it all.

Menu Plan: 5•6•19

Its a new week.  And even though we are out the door at the crack of dawn today, I'm ready for it.  Well, as ready as I can be anyways.  Bring it on Monday!  At least my menu is planned.  Gotta start somewhere right?


So this weeks menu is brought to you my the letter CHICKEN.  That's a thing right?  Because really, holy crap with the chicken Kim!  There is a lot of it this week.  And tacos are still up in the air as far as chicken or beef.  That's right, we haven't even been to the store yet.  But the menu is planned but not set in stone.  Here's what has made the cut this far...
