Happy Homemaker Monday (Vol. 7)
On the weather front:
The weather has been slowly changing to fall. The mornings are cool & crisp, but the afternoons still tease with heat. The weather change has brought on a serious hot chocolate craving...including extra whip cream. When I ordered one yesterday, the above picture is what the waitress brought out. It was lovely.
On my bedside table:
Glass of Water
On my TV:
Walker Texas Ranger
I Love Lucy (I love watching re-runs...)
Favorite Youtube Video last week:
Hmmm...I don't think I've watched anything recently. However, I'm a sucker for homemaking videos, especially anything to do with organization. :)
News story that caught my attention:
Local stories of petty thefts, violence and car hijacks. I just don't understand people. This world is NOT my home. I have to remind myself of that.
On the menu for this week:
Monday: Homemade Chili
Tuesday: Sub Sandwiches
Thursday: Brocolli, Chicken & Rice Casserole (one of Josh's favorites!)
Friday: Out to Eat
New Recipe I tried or want to try:
I am looking for a really good pumpkin bread recipe. I tried one last week that turned out horrible! If you know of a good one, feel free to send it my way. :)
On my To Do List:
Bathrooms (5 minute wipe down)
Put Laundry Away
In the craft basket:
Finish Evie's Baby Book
Looking forward to:
A shopping trip to finalize big items we need for baby girl (Crib matress, baby bath, etc.)
What I plan on doing for myself this week:
I would like to give myself a facial, manicure, and pedicure. Been feeling a bit "blah". Those things usually help me feel a bit better about myself. ;)
Lesson learned the past few days:
True friends are few and precious. I'm very thankful for mine.
One of my personal goals has been to eat less sugar, lower carb (notice that says LOWER not LOW or NON...Haha), and still enjoy life on ...

If I had to eat one meal for the rest of my life...I would pick tacos. I mean, how can you go wrong with tortillas? I don't think yo...
