Weekend Recap + This Week's Menu

Monday, April 15, 2019

Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend. It was a good one here. 

On Saturday we drove to our hometown to visit with my brother's family and celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday. They're expecting a baby too this summer (A new nephew! Yay!) so we talked nurseries and names, and other fun stuff like that, and the kids had a blast playing together. Pizza and cake topped off a fun night!

On Sunday we picked up Hadley's new mattress and Steve put together her new bed (here's a little preview -- still need to add the bed skirt, hang things on the walls, and I can't really put the comforter on with the toddler sides but you get the idea!). You've never seen a two year old more excited! It's kind of crazy to see a big bed in her room instead of the crib. She was just born last month. I don't understand time, but it is really fun seeing how proud she is. Later in the day I did a grocery pick up (well, Steve technically did the pick up part) and to wind down last night I caught up on some magazines (does anyone except for me still read magazines? I hope so! I've always loved flipping through them) and watched "The Perfect Date" on Netflix. It was no "To All the Boys I've Loved Before" but it was still entertaining. ;) Just living the 31 year old dream. 

Here's what's on the menu for this week:

Sunday - Rotisserie chicken, mashed potatoes and peas

Monday - Chicken caesar salads (using leftover rotisserie chicken)

Tuesday - Crockpot Italian beef hoagies, roasted brussel sprouts

Wednesday - Burgers on the grill, fries, corn on the cob

Thursday - Leftovers

Friday - Pizza 

Saturday - Out

Make it a good one, my friends!


  1. That's sweet. We are expecting a new nephew as well towards the end of summer.
    The weeks menu looks yum

    1. That's so exciting! Nothing like the anticipation of a new little life. :)

  2. I definitely still read magazines and they keep piling up because I have no time to read them LOL

    1. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one... on both counts! I have a huge TBR stack!

  3. Her new bed looks so cute! I also love flipping through magazines and being able to dive into an article that seems interesting.

    1. Thanks Sierra! Me too! I used to collect stacks and stacks when I was younger and spend time cutting things out and making little dreamboards. Maybe I should take that up again. ;)
