{this moment}

{this moment} - inspired by SouleMama 


A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. 

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Menu Planning Monday - August 25th




Wow, it's been a while since I've posted one of these, over a year!

So while I may not have been posting my menu, I have usually had one in mind while I purchase the weeks groceries, even if it's not always concrete give the schedules we had over the last year.

I have a feeling it will be nice to feel somewhat "normal" for a while...

Monday: BBQ Chicken, corn, chips, pasta salad
Tuesday: Tacos
Wednesday: Baked ziti, salad
Thursday: Chef Salad,  soft bread sticks
Friday: homemade "fast food" night
Saturday: Pizza night!
Sunday: fend-for-yourself (shopping day)

I'm hoping to also get ready for back to school the following week and get some baking done and frozen ahead of time. Snack items (cookies, granola bars, etc), breakfast items (muffins, breakfast burritos), etc are all things I'm hoping to get around to baking this week.

And of course, make sure you pop over to I'm an Organizing Junkie for more menu planning ideas and links!

What a year...

I know I've been neglecting this blog for quite sometime now.

The short story is that I applied and was accepted into Practical Nursing school... which I just graduated from this past Thursday evening. The last 12 months has been a whirl wind of school, studying, and all of my "extras" such as Girl Scouts, bell choir and taking care of the kids. Needless to say, this has left very little room for blog.

It's a bit long (12 minutes), but this is a slideshow of what the last year of my life has been a part of.




I am hoping now that the chaos of the last year is behind me, and while there is still much coming up (new fall classes, Scouts, church, etc), I can devote some time to reviving this blog.

For those who have stuck around, I thank you.
