Welcome back to Menu Monday! As I explained in last week’s post, we plan from Saturday to Friday and do most of our cooking on the weekends. Having leftovers is necessary for us to have things go more smoothly in the evenings. We get home around 5:30 pm and the kids need to be heading upstairs for showers around 7:00 pm. This doesn’t leave a ton of time for getting dinner prepared and other responsibilities like helping with homework. Luckily we are only dealing with 2nd grade homework right now!
We got a bit of a snow storm this weekend and were happy to have our favorite soup planned for Sunday evening!
Last week I was in Michaels getting the supplies for this project. We enjoyed the rock painting so much, I though it would be fun to do a painting project outside again this weekend. For the past couple of weeks we have had beautiful spring days and I was itching to get outside and enjoy it. Well, the weekend was not as warm and beautiful. I did not let it ruin our plans though. We just had to improvise and set up at the kitchen table. We laid out newspaper over the table and painted away! This project is so much fun and makes a great decoration for a playroom or child’s bedroom. (more…)
I went into our Dollar Tree store last week and they had a huge display of Easter goodies! I wanted to do an experiment to see what kind of Easter baskets I could make while just using those $1.00 items. I’m sure you can find lots of great low price items at other stores, but I thought I would try to do everything in one store. (more…)
Is it just mine or do all toddlers just not eat? When Graylie was around 9 months old she would try anything. She loved avocado, scrambled eggs, green beans, peas, and fruits galore. I thought I am going to have a great eater here! (more…)
Happy Monday! Did you do any meal prepping over the weekend? I did not do near as much as I would have liked. I did at least make a meal plan for the week. I thought I would share it with you. I like to plan Saturday to Friday. That seems to work best for me since I have more time to cook on the weekends and I do my weekly shopping on Saturday. (more…)
I started this blog about one month ago. I had originally thought about starting one last fall but talked myself out of it. I guess the whole start of a new year was enough to motivate me to start thinking about it again. So here I am. Here is what I have learned so far through my blogging journey: (more…)
Welcome back to Toddler Tuesday! I am assuming if you have a toddler, you probably would love to know of a toy that your toddler will actually play with for more than five minutes. Well, if you have a little girl, I may be able to help you out. (more…)
It’s that time of year! McDonald’s is offering their very popular Shamrock Shake. Since it is already feeling like spring here in North Carolina, I tried to pull off a healthy version of this shake for Gavin. (more…)
I started this blog about two weeks ago and the main question I get is “how do you find the time to blog?” It is a very relevant question. Since the days are pretty full, I try to get in about an hour a few nights a week. (more…)
