My Weekly Menu (Sept 10th)

Well last week was a crazy one for us and it is looking like this week will be following the same pattern! We have a lot of appointments this week. So I am going to be doing some simple dinners to reduce the stress level. ;) 

I have been on a Pinterest pinning rampage lately. And with fall only weeks away,(...although this weekend has definitely felt like fall :)...)I am getting super excited for fall foods and crafts!

My Weekly Menu (Sept. 3rd)

Happy September!!

It's the beginning of my favorite season...FALL!! There's nothing better than sweatshirts, bonfires, football, and trips to the pumpkin patch. :) And of course we can't forget crockpot season! hahaha...I can't wait for those chilly nights so I can be reunited with my crockpot. :) 

Well this week kicks off our first week of homeschooling! I am super excited to dive into the curriculum we have picked out...which is another post to come along with pictures of our school room/area :) Since I will be homeschooling, I will be posting our lunch menu too to help keep this lady organized (if that is really possible with 5 kids...haha). This week is going to be a fun filled jam packed week with some fun activities for the kiddos and eating out to celebrate...along with it being my birthday this week too. ;) (I'm still not sure how I feel about leaving the mid 20s and heading towards the late 20s.)
