Meal Plan Monday and some chatting


It's Meal Planning Monday over at Laura's place...so go on over and visit with her and everyone else and maybe you might get an idea or two.

Monday......Jambalaya and Salad

Tuesday.............Sausage Bean Soup with cornbread

Wednesday.......Leftover Soup

Thursday............Steaks, Scalloped Potatoes, Green Beans with almonds...Homemade Bread

Friday.........Girls Night Out......Dad and the kids will order out

Saturday.......Grilled Chicken Pasta with Strawberry and Mandarin Orange Salad

Sunday.......Appetizers I have looked at from Overwhelmed with Joy's Super Bowl Sunday Favorite Appetizers

Today...I'm cleaning the house and starting to de clutter things.......see we have 3 couples who would like to come see our home and we haven't even put a For Sale sign in the door yet.....so I need to start getting it together. That means cleaning out closets and cabinets and boxing things up. Can you all give me some tips on trying to sell your house? Anything I need to know to make it look more bigger or cleaner.....or desirable? You let me know. Hope you all are having a great Monday.....the kids are better...well Madison is....Miller is still whining with a stuffy nose and coughing he is on a steroid so I guess this is making him feel yucky.
But for the most part this week I'm getting back into the groove. Off to clean I go.

2. I love to eat Cotton Candy with my kids.

3. I enjoy getting mail.....esp when it's a card from a friend....I also enjoy sending cards to people.

4. Scott and I have a heated mattress pad with dual sides and our own controllers so we can be as warm as we want without burning the other one up.

5. I wish I could take up golfing so Scott and I could share a hobby together.....yet I find the sport incredibly boring.

6. I love to watch Ellen DeGeneres in the afternoons...I seldom ever miss her. I think she is so funny.

7. I hate confrontation....and some people use this against me.

11. On my wedding day....my dad said if I wanted to back out he could get me out of there in 10 minutes...no questions asked...he liked Scott...just thought I was young with my whole life in front of me....and I was the oldest of 3.......I was only 19.....as you know I declined his offer. And I'm happily married.

12. Both my Babies were big...Madison was 9.1 pounds 20 inches long and Miller (one week early) 8.9 pounds 22 inches long.....and yes I had them natural.

Girl Talk

Good Morning! What do you think? The banner? Well, until I can figure out how to put Girl Talk on it this is it for now. I like it.....grab a cup of Joe and sit. I hope you all are well today. It's Friday! TGIF!!!!!!

I'm home today. Cleaning. Got alot of running this weekend though...Saturday morning we are off for acting lessons, then shopping, then a chili supper at church that night. Sunday is church...and lounging the rest of the day...hopefully. We are supposed to get snow Saturday night...we will see. I know alot of you are getting some bad weather right now.

So my parents are traveling to Florida for some golfing. They love this. They wont be back until February.
I have alot coming up with appointments..I know I will make it though.

I'm still planning Madison's Valentine Party at school, our Valentine Banquet for church and I have our monthly MOPS meeting coming up....I'm doing the devotional...wish me luck.

I have been planning our vacations throughout the week. We have one planned for October to Florida...one in May for St Louis...possibly Chicago for a day......and one to New York at Christmas with my mom Christmas shopping and Madison....I love planning trips..this is what I should be doing all the time....

I have also been on line this week looking for a lock for our lazy susan in the kitchen...Miller wont leave it alone...constantly in it taking spices and running from me with them. So cute. Aggravating...but cute.

Madison had a great report card...and her conduct this year is awesome...everyone says she has matured so much and it is totally different from last year. I love this year.

Has anyone watched Men in Trees...or Brothers & Sisters....I love these shows and am addicted to them. I tivo them and watch them throughout the week. You ought to try them...

The weaning has been a success....I'm still full....wish it would go away....I may need to take some Sudafed to dry up faster. They hurt a little bit. Thanks for your prayers and advice...I just wish it was gone now. The fullness is aggravating. Miller has done really well. He is such a big boy...still teething though...he was up and down last night...not alot of sleep...his teeth and all.

It's my brother's birthday today...he is 31...Happy Birthday...he is in San Diego on business.....

Well, I hope you all have a great weekend.....I leave you with this...

In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends....Martin Luther King Jr.

Yada, Yada, Yada

Good Morning it's freezing here. It's 15. It's soooooo cold.
I picked this picture because it was taken in Hawaii and well, who wouldn't want to be there right now? Today I get to go to the salon and get my nails done...yada yada yada I know. But I love getting this done...its very relaxing. Miller is going to mom's...and I have to get my jeep serviced. Not alot going on in my neck of the woods.
American Idol was just hilarious last night....I mean what was up with some of those people? We would pause and rewind alot. We laughed so hard.
Scott just left he had to be at work early. Madison is still asleep and Miller is in the Tupperware cabinet.
The weaning is going okay...I feel much better about it. Thanks to all of you who talked to me about it. We are teething really bad...molars..so my question of the day is Does anyone have any great methods for teething relief? Any advice would be appreciated....
Have a great Wednesday everyone!

The next milestone please....


I cannot wait.......we are so ready for this.
Season Premiere Tonight & Tomorrow 8/7c!
If you have never watched it...give it a try you will laugh your socks off...good comedy.
We have watched every season but one.....and we just really as a family enjoy this. There are some people that really think they can sing.....too funny. Don't miss it!




I just love this photo..it looks so relaxing. I wish I was there sitting with a glass of Sweet Tea or wine...I could take either.....this weaning thing has gotten me down in the dumps. I'm almost done. I'm not swollen anymore. But yesterday I was sad. I know he needs me for other things....trust me I know this. But its the end and what if I don't have anymore kids...I will never experience anything like this again.....and he wont burn my 500 calories a day anymore...so this means I have to get my butt up and go work out...this I can do maybe it will take my mind off the weaning. I do miss it and I know this will pass....I felt very needed though...and I do with all my family.....Its just a breastfeeding mom thing I guess.

Madison goes back to school today so we will get back to normal. We watched the Golden Globe Awards last night and really enjoyed watching them walk down the red carpet. Well, it's off to make breakfast......have a great day and don't forget to watch American Idol tonight!
Happy Tuesday!

It's Monday and it's raining.

Good Morning. It's raining here and has been since late Friday night.....I wish it would stop...I'm ready for the sunshine. Well, Madison is out of school today...and I have BIG news. Miller hasn't nursed since Friday night. Yes, I'm a little sad. He asked for it Saturday night and I said it was gone and gave him a cup of milk....he is almost 14 months now and I'm ready for the next step. Last night he didn't ask for it....I just have to go through a whole new step of getting him to sleep now. But you know what? This is all he has know for 1 year and I cant expect to change all of this in 2 days....so I have been really patient...and well, he has slept all night for 2 nights...lst night from 8pm until 7am which was wonderful for me. Maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Madison even is sleeping better. With all the rain here, Scott has been working some over time...remember he works for the phone company.
Today we are going out with mom....lunch and shopping. I'm going to post my Meal Planning Monday below..so look for it. The girls lost their soccer game Saturday. They played really hard...Madison got hit in the face with the ball...drama. She is trying out for a part in her acting class for a play...she is already in a play at school coming up. This week....I have some appointments and errands to run. Nothing huge. My parents leave for Florida Thursday so I'll be seeing them off. She has never been away from the kids this long. I booked our condo in Florida for fall break and am looking forward to this trip. Hope you all have a great Monday...

Monday...........Chicken & Dressing Casserole...salad

Tuesday...........Pot Roast with potatoes, carrots, Lima Beans, Corn Bread...and corn

Wednesday......leftovers

Thursday..........Taco Salad

Friday...............Tater Tot Casserole and fruit

Saturday...........Chili Supper at Church

Sunday..............Eat out

I do have a question for you all out there.....I have to get some games together for the school Valentine Party for Madison...I need at least 4-5 games.....I have 2 picked out.....a candy heart stacking contest.....and one where you blindfold one person and sit them in front of the class and point at someone else in the class quietly they walk up to the blindfolded kid and say I LOVE YOU in a disguised voice and the other kid has to guess who it is.......this game is alot of fun to end the party or start the party.....any ideas are welcomed.......

Happy Monday!

Girl Talk


Well, it's Friday pull up a chair and something to drink...lets talk...

I have alot to say today....first of all.....I need a banner for Girl Talk does anyone no of anyone that can make me one or show me how to make one? Let me know.......I'm in need of assistance.

I had fun on my lunch with my friend yesterday.....we are planning a Girls Night Out...which is in much dire need. I love girls nights out....love them...dinner, drinks, and a movie.....

Alot is going on in my household this weekend....I have a Women's Club meeting Saturday morning..Madison has acting lessons...she has soccer practice and a game.....along with church..so I would say Mom's Taxi will be going strong.

We are having sleeping problems in the house again. Madison wont go to sleep...she slept maybe 2 hours last night...I don't think she had any caffeine last night...I went over her diet and don't think she snuck anything. She was up and down all night long...Miller has been waking up around 1-2 am for the last week...I put him in bed with us and he goes right back to sleep...I DON'T nurse him...He is just down to evenings before bed. SO Scott is pretty grumpy this morning he didn't get to work out because he so tired...and I'm sleepy too. Madison will be hit the hardest when she is sitting in math class today around 2pm.....any suggestion out there?

I went to Walmart yesterday and had alot of groceries....when you go to the grocery (Walmart) do you let the cashier put them in your cart? The last couple of times I get some over weight women who wants me to do it...so I do....then I want to say...can I get my 20% of your check now? What are your feelings on this?

We are supposed to get alot of rain this weekend..I hate that much rain...and of course we will be going alot. Then the temp is supposed to drop to 16 on Sunday....which wont be good at all.
I'm going out with mom today....running some errands...going to World Market, Bed Bath and Beyond....need to look at some different household items....Monday Madison is out of school so we thought we would take a trip to the cemetery to see Papaw Dub.......we need to do new flowers anyway. Madison has only been back one time since he passed away.

Well, its off for a shower.......have a great weekend friends......

Happy 2007

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

It's a new year......and boy do I have new years resolutions. I'm going to start walking with some friends 3 days a week. And I'm going to make myself get on a schedule.....make myself. And just be a more happier, giving person. I also want to start reading the bible more. I think I will make myself get up early in the morning for my devotions.

Well, the last couple of days have been terrible. We have all had the awful stomach virus....each one of us like dominoes got it. It was the worse thing I have ever had...and yes my stomach still aches because of it and we still have low grade fevers.

We didn't do anything last night...watched Pirates of the Caribbean part 2 and hung out. No big partying here. Not even a glass of champagne.

I wish you all a healthy, prosperous 2007.....and I look forward to spending time with each of you.
