Sunday life.....

So it is time to start getting my butt in gear. Seriuosly I have been saying forever that I want to start working out, but I never do. Ok I do it one day and that's it -I hate to say. But my DH and I are taking a cruise in December. And I am so fat that I don't fit in my fat jeans. AAAHHHHH! Not sure how much I actually weigh, but I know it is at least 135-140, my usual, happy, my clothes all fit, weight is 125. Plus I have to wear a swimsuit on the cruise, hello margaritas by the pool.
So to get going and keeping with my need a TO DO list to get anything done attitude I made this excercise journal. I haven't made a cover yet, but when I do I will post it. I'm thinking tropical to keep me motivated. I made this on my computer and I think it will work out good for me. Just really really need to keep with it. So please keep up the encouraging -please -please help me. Don't really want to be fat on a cruise and have nothing to wear but my DH jeans. (OH and I made this with my new Zutter Bind it all, love it.)
Let's see what else well we had all the boys this weekend. Wyatt loved it. More people to play with him. They had a few issues here and there, but it wasn't that bad. So this is my sunday life. what has happened and what hopefully will happen.

So not much has been going on this week. Trying to stay home and not spend money. We are pretty tight with our last money coming in, it wasn't the greatest (at least the bills our paid and we can eat) God has really been good to us since DH startd his own business. So to not leave the house to much I decided to do a two week menu plan instead of a week. Figure if I need to get out of the house then we will just have to freeze it out at the park (brr it sure is getting cold here)

Plus we are hopefully taking a dirt bike trip the second weekend of October so I'd like to have some money for that too.

So here are a meals for the next two weeks. I don't set a specific day for these. It is just easier for me to decide that day which one I will make.

-2 days for leftovers

-1 free night (we sometimes make meals w/ friends so I like to leave a night open for this)

-Oven fried Chicken Chimichangas, refried beans

-Chicken over biscuits

-Pulled pork sandwiches, fries

-Breakfast for dinnner (pancakes, sausage)
-Meatloaf, cheesy potatoes

-Homemade Chili w/ fritos
-German Style pork chops w/noodles
* As a note these are the best. They are so good. Yummo!!!

A dessert for this week-
No bake cookies

Learning to jump rope

So Wyatt was watching this cartoon Max and Ruby and Ruby was jump roping.
Wyatt comes and steals my tape measure adn grabs my hands and has me use it like the jump rope. It was so funny to watch him try to do this. I wish the pictures showed his motion a little better. I was laughing the rest of the day. It was so cute.

This is a blurry one but I think it shows how hard he was trying to jump.

So some of our meals are carried over because we have gotten lucky with sharing meals with friends so some of the dinners didn't get made. Yea less groceries to buy.

-Chicken Tetrazini (see recipe below in last post)

-Shredded Pork Sandwiches

-Pepper Jack Chicken Roll ups
Mashed Potatoes
Cream corn

-Hamburger Helper

-Golden Chicken

Also this weekend I went to a all day crop and it took me 9+ hours to make, but I made this mini album for my sister Kim. I am pretty proud of this book, I went out of my box fo rthis one, not sure if you can see it or not but on pages 2-5 some of them are scalloped. And then on pg.7 I actually used coffee straws (the pink sticks). Thanks for looking.

Baked potatoes, chili, sour cream, onions, cheese

For lots more menu ideas check out Laura's blog over at

**This is what happens when I can't sleep I take pics of my poor kid sleeping, luckily he didn't wake up from the flash. Anywho... Wyatt has decided that he doesn't sleep in his crib anymore and wants to be like his older brothers. He is on his 4/5 night of sleeping on the bottom bunk. So I guess it's time to take the crib down.

YEA I'm a winner.

It is so funny I never win anything. And how funny is it that I won this book thru the blogabration.

As some of you know my love for scrapbook stores. See layout below.

Menu Plan Monday

Summer is over and all my older kids have gone back to their dad's house for school so it is just now my 2yo. DH is still really busy with the new business so I still try to take him dinner if he's working late, but I never know when he'll be home heck I don't think he really knows either.
So I have been having a heck of a time with making menus and sticking to them. I just haven't been in the mood to cook or heck clean. My house has stayed clean, but I just feel so over whelmed lately. I just feel like I never get it all done, so what's the point. It is weird, I really do love to cook and clean, but just don't feel like it right now. So this week I am going to keep my meals simple and slowly try to get back in it.
So if any of you ladies have any ideas as to help with my SAHM duties I would really appreciate it.

So here are my ideas for this week-
Chili Cheese Potato wedges, salad
Cheesy Italian Shells Hamburger helper, green beans, rolls
Hamburgers on the grill (DH favorite)
Tortellini w/ sauce, bread sticks

Blast from the past....

Well I decided to take all my pics from Jr. High (1986-1989) and make a mini album the last couple of days. This is not completely done, but I am not sure what to do to finish it up. So here is a look.
