Greenery & Glassware

Friday morning I had a big task to do around the house. In a moment I decided "nope! not doing that" and made new plans. I met up with two friends, held a baby for some time, and laid on a friends bed while she packed (heaven) then I headed off for some thrifting. I won't pretend it wasn't absolutely lovely. AND I got some great things. 

Vancouver Sun historic glasses - set of 8, $1.50 each. They must have just arrived, I scooped them up immediately. So far everyone loves them.

Hard day's night

There are moments when you just need to be an adult. While I love being grown up and love being an adult, sometimes I hate the responsibility and the jobs that pile up. I love the freedom that comes with adulthood. I love the things in our life as well, but to make it all keep going it involves discipline and hard work. 

I have a few goals:
  • to be healthy for when I get pregnant
  • to run my home well: creating a comfortable space for those that live there and visit there, feeding my household and friends inexpensive, tasty and healthy food, and keeping a tidy, organized and clean house.
  • to run my life well: not missing deadlines, taking advantage of good opportunities and deals, living with margin and living out of love.
These things bring much joy, but to make them happen I must be disciplined. Oh discipline is hard for me!

Menu Plan Monday, June 23rd

Menu Plan Monday with Laura at Org Junkie

Upcoming week: 
Monday: ?
Tonight is a night where I will cook. The problem is that the weekend was super busy and I didn't get to the grocery store....and I didn't put any meat in the when I get home I"ll be ransacking the freezer for ready cooked meats and will make up some sort of dinner. We only have mushrooms, broccoli & asparagus, all sorts of starches (rice, pasta, potatoes), one onion, and all sorts of canned foods. I do have some cooked Turkey in the fridge but I normally try to leave that for lunches. I wonder what I'll make?

Blooming Baby Shower: A summer themed baby shower

You might know that I love to throw a party - especially a party with a theme and even more so a party for people I love. Today's blog post covers both of these things perfectly.

7 Quick Takes (Volume 11)

--- 1 --- 
Ahh, Thursday. Or as it's better known in my head - My Friday. Love it. Lately there has been house decorating, a love affair with fresh cut flowers and a sporadic burst of baking in our home.

Menu Plan Monday with Laura at Org Junkie
I'd like to begin by saying how excited I am to have worked with Ash of The Grits Blog to create a new custom design blog for this space! I am absolutely in love with it, and she was a delight to work with! I hope it makes my site easier to navigate and enjoy. I know I'm pleased already!

Menu Plan Tuesday, June 3, 2014

Menu Plan Monday with Laura at Org Junkie

Upcoming week: 
Monday: Bear Pizza
Last night's dinner was an easy one - we cut up some bear sausage and sauteed it until crispy then topped a Palermo Margarita Pizza with the sausage and some mozza and bam! Pizza for dinner. 

Tuesday: Roasted Pepper Penne
Tuesday night is lifegroup - we have a bunch of diced peppers left over from camping so this calls for a recipe my mom used to make. I can't recall exactly how it works, but I know I roast peppers and add them to pasta - I have the recipe tucked away in a keepsake box at home - it's the last thing my mom wrote to me. 

Wednesday: Green Beans, Chicken & Potatoes
Wednesday we are seeing my mom, so I wanted an easy dinner I could prep the night before and have Paul put in the oven for me. Voila!

Thursday: Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice with broccoli
Thursday is a night I'm out for dinner but Paul and our house needs to eat so crockpot makes that doable!

Friday: Crockpot Cordon Blue with Asparagus
I'll be in the USA shopping with Ana all day, so I needed something I could throw in the crockpot and serve up after putting groceries away. Easy and tasty

Saturday: Leftovers / Duncan Dinner
We're throwing a baby shower for Irene - so between the leftovers and something Duncan is whipping up, we will be sorted.

Sunday: Garlic Shrimp Tortellini Toss
Sunday we have an hour to eat dinner between meetings, so I'll prep this in advance serve after church!
