Thanks to everyone who shared their love story this weekend. If you didn’t have a chance to write your story…please feel free to add your link! Your stories have been so much fun to read!
Well…I sent Matt off to the airport a few hours ago where he is flying to his grandfather’s funeral. We’re so thankful he’s able to go be with his family. Ooh, but I don’t like it when he’s gone. I usually get weird and try to make the hours go faster by re-arranging furniture and stuff when he’s out of town. You know, because it’s always smart to move heavy things when you don’t have help. I’ll try to hold back and leave the beds and couches alone.
I usually don’t enjoy cooking as much when Matt’s gone either. Does anyone else feel that way when their husband isn’t home? Thankfully…we’ve worked it out to have an extra person or two over during the next few days…which is extra motivation for me to actually put a real meal on the table. The boys have a buddy (Remember the red head? Love that kid.) who needs a place to stay one day…and I decided to invite a special lady over who just lost her husband for dinner on Monday. This means I will not give in to the temptation to feed my children toast, apples and popcorn the entire week. Yay.
Here’s the plan that I’ll try to stick to instead. Oh, and since it’s Valentine Week, it’ll be fun to make some heart shaped meals too! See? All kinds of motivation to cook! (Not to mention the ever helpful Menu Plan Mondays over at Organizing Junkie.)
Sunday, Feb. 8
BBQ beef sandwiches, carrot sticks, fresh pineapple
Friday, Feb. 13
Pumpkin bread, bananas
Baked potatoes with leftover chili and cheese, broccoli
Lasagna, tossed salad, corn
On the blogging menu this week…I’ll be joining JessieLeigh for a Valentine’s Exchange of Ideas and Inspiration. Join in the fun if you’d like! To start off the week, stop by Kate’s to see other fun valentine meal ideas. Then Tuesday, join me here for a special edition of Gratituesday…where we can share what we love to be grateful for. Wednesday, JessieLeigh encourages us all to share fun ways to celebrate valentines day with little ones. Thursday, we’ll meet at Jessica’s for a recipe swap. Then on Friday we’ll wrap up the week at Amy’s for a Finer Valentine’s Things Friday.
And..somewhere in there I’ve just got to post a random post…because it’s been way too long since I’ve allowed myself to just go entirely random on you. I’ve been having random post withdrawals at random times during the past few weeks. Brace yourselves.
What kind of week do you have ahead of you?
