My Plan Monday

Here we are, it's already Monday again!  I'm not sure what happened to last week, but it really flew by.  The best part of the week was making a quick trip to visit my good friend Jennifer and hand-deliver Mighty Max's quilt!  It was a short visit, but I am so grateful to have seen Jennifer and all of her beautiful children and to meet little Max.  What a miracle he is!

My plan for this week still isn't totally figured out.  ;-)  I spent all day yesterday doing laundry.  I mean ALL DAY!  I had really let things get behind and then being out of town for two days helped pile on to the mountains of clothes.  I actually did too much yesterday, because this morning I am really sore and still tired.  Sometimes I forget that I'm almost 7 months pregnant and carrying around this little guy.  The hardest thing that I did yesterday was to through all of my GG's baby clothes.  She's 3 now and we had 3 huge tubs of clothes in the basement full of her baby clothes.  I was hoping to find some neutral things in there, but EVERYTHING was PINK! lol  So, I need to start buying some clothes, bit by bit, for our little guy.  What made this hard, was that I boxed everything up to donate to charity.  Seeing all of her cute, little clothes and knowing that we weren't going to have any more children after Peanut is born was really hard. Well, unless God blesses us with another child, but in all honesty, I am just getting too old to have another one.  :-(   But, I just kept telling myself that all of these things would help someone and their little blessing and that before I knew it, I'd have drawers full of cute, blue, little boy clothes.

Our menu for this week is pretty simple, because we are recovering from our mini trip we took last week.  Plus, it's just getting to be too much for me to fix huge meals every day for dinner, so this week is an easy one.

This weeks menu:  

Monday - Cheese Ravioli with spaghetti sauce, whatever yummy veggie is on sale, French bread
Tuesday- Waffles, fruit salad
Wednesday- Taco Soup w/ sour cream and Fritos, Cornbread
Thursday- Grilled cheese, French fries, Pasta Salad
Friday- Payday- Carryout Pizza
Saturday- Still deciding on this one!  It's college football game day and our team plays at 6, so I'm trying to decide what fun snacks to make to eat while watching the game. :-)
Sunday- Three Packet Crock-pot roast, Loaded baked potatoes, Salad, Biscuit

Just for fun goodies:

Libby's Pumpkin Cranberry Bread from All Recipes
Spiced Pumpkin Fudge from All Recipes (I tried a recipe last week from my recipe file that I thought was what I had made before.  It DID NOT turn out. :-(  I had to throw it in the trash.  It turned into a grainy, pumpkin carmel.  So, I'm trying a different recipe this week and crossing my fingers!  I can't believe I didn't have the right recipe filed!)

Things to do:

There is only one thing that I'm putting on my to-do list for this week and that's because I need to get it done as quickly as I can.  I need to quilt and bind a baby quilt that I'm making for a friend who is due this month.   So, even though I have tons of things I'd like to work on at the same time, I'm not even going to write those down, because I don't want to tempt myself and get distracted from what's most important this week!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a good week ahead!  I am hoping to share some baby things that I have made these past few weeks with you all soon.  I have the pictures taken and ready to go, it's just finding the time to write out the post! :-)

Take care and God Bless!


  1. Thanks for stopping by. . .

    Oh I so relate to getting rid of old baby things. I still have our two car seats out in the garage (they are so old they aren't even safe anymore). We are really good with 5 kids. In fact, 6 would probably push me over the edge but it is hard to close that door all the way! Miss the baby stage sometimes!

  2. Your meal plan would fit perfectly in my house too. I love a good taco soup recipe.


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and to leave me a comment! I really do appreciate it and hope that you come back and visit me again soon! Take care and God Bless! di
