thanks sandra at diary of a stay at home mom for hosting :)
The weather in my neck of the woods: it's a beautiful sunny morning here! lower humidity for the moment :)
One of my simple pleasures: waking up to my 3 kids in my big bed on the first day of summer vacation.
On my bedside table: "new moon" all over again :)
On my TV: cartoons of all kinds- it's the first summer morning.
On the menu for tonight:blackened chicken & sausage with red beans & rice.
On my To Do List: make our summer fun list, some frozen snacks, straighten up a bit.
New Recipe I tried last week: think i stuck to good old stand-bys last week. it was a crazy one!
In the craft basket: my online craft basket, lol! needing to work on school year scrapbooks online. only can be done at naptime- i'm lucky i get to type this stuff right now, lol!
Looking forward to: adam starting summer school next monday-so nervous though!!! he needs the speech help and i think he'll have a great time. oh! tim & i joined the fintess center here in our subdivsion! i'm looking forward to starting off my 30th year by getting healthy!
Homemaking Tip for this week: keep a frozen meal, like chicken pot pie casserole or something. ya never know when your week will be ultra hectic and i hate eating dinners at 7:30.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): my spotlight wednesday this past week was my fave! the kids and i are really excited to begin the planning of our bake sale!
Favorite photo from last week: my big kids on the last day of school
Lesson learned the past few days: ya can't stop time- you can only make the most of it.
On my Prayer List: family, friends traveling for summer vacations, prayer of thanks for all those who made this past school year so great! lord, help me be a fun mom this summer. knowing that this only last so long. prayers for keeping things in perspective.
