Getting ready for the week, post holiday.

November 27, 2016

Thanksgiving was wonderful.  We ate too much, laughed a bunch, and shopped a little.  We were able to get our Christmas tree up, and we received our first Christmas card.  The holiday spirit is beginning to surge through me!  With all that said, this long weekend has me all unorganized!  So, this morning I’m taking a few moments to get organized and prepared for the week.

Menu Plan:

Breakfasts- will be oatmeal or eggs with fruit.

Lunches – salads for mom, sandwiches for dad, and random things for the boys.


Sunday- pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes.

Monday- Chicken tacos for the boys, Taco Salad for mama

Tuesday- Grilled Chicken Salads for everyone

Wednesday: Holiday Party

Thursday:  Bowtie Pasta for boys with parmesan and olive oil.  Salad as a side for them, but main course for mama!

Friday-  Boys leftovers, Dad Work Dinner, and Mom Salad.

Sunday Brunch with friends – Nutella and banana roll ups, Orange juice, sausage/pepper/cream cheese braid, and a standard casserole.

I’m reading “Paris for One” by Jojo Moyes

I plan to do a workout class every day Monday-Saturday and eat a nutrient rich salad every day Monday- Saturday.

Liam goes  back to school this week, and I’d like to take the boys to do something festive this week.  I’m beginning to increase our preschool homeschool frequency, and I’m only allowing my kids to watch television when we watch it as a family.  They’ve become addicts!

As you can see, this is a very loose plan for the week.  Just having a little direction for the week helps me to be more intentional and useful.  It helps me save more money and complete more tasks.
