Weekly Meal Plan

Last week we tried an amazing sheet pan recipe with Chicken and Veggies. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to look for another recipe. The one we decided to try this week was a Sheet Pan Steak and Veggies. It was very similar to last week’s choice but was not near as delicious.  Instead of cooking the entire recipe to have leftovers, I decided to chop everything up and save half of it for the next night. That worked out really well for us this week. (more…)

Rocking Motherhood Challenge

I have been invited to join in on the Rocking Motherhood Challenge by a new friend, Kristen on Instagram.

Where to find $1 Movies This Summer

summer $1 MoviesOne of my favorite things to do on a hot day is head to a nice cool movie theater! We all know how expensive it has gotten to take your family to see a movie. In the summer, there are lots of family friendly movies that are offered for only $1. There is a catch though. These movies are only offered on the weekdays and they usually start around 10:00 A.M. That is great timing for those of us who are still hanging on to the fact that the little one might take an afternoon nap! (more…)
