Happy Homemaker Monday

Guess who hasn't participated in a Happy Homemaker Monday for a loooong time? Yes that would be me! So let me get back in the game!!

Weather in my neck of the woods: sunny and warm! I live in So. Cal so the weather doesn't change much (:

Things that make me Happy: celebrating my anniversary with my sweetheart

Books I am reading: Oh gosh, nothing really! Isn't that awful?!

What is on my tv today: catching up on DVR and a funny episode of Psych

On the menu for dinner tonight: marinaded chicken, potato salad, rolls

On my to do list: organizing my coupon binder, planning out shopping lists

New recipe I have tried or want to try soon: tonight I am making Nutella cresants with heath bits. I don't know what the recipe is called but I will share when I make it.

In the craft basket: a new chore chart for my son (using my cricut and velcro)

What I am looking forward to this week: my boys being at Cub Scout day camp (:

Tips & tricks: We just got back from a camping trip. When packing for 6 people, there is a high probability of forgetting things. So I pack full complete outfits and put them in a gallon size bag. From socks and underwear to hair things for my daughter. Also, if there will be an activity that they need "special" clothes for (like swimming) I put those in a seperate spot. Besides making sure that they have everything they need, it is easier to unpack without dumping a whole bag out for what you need. I don't throw the bags away, I use them for dirty clothes or wet clothes on the way home. Or...well for anything.

My favorite blog post this week: see below

Blog Hopping: I found this blog a bit ago and love all the advice and inspiration!!  Check out Organizing Made Fun

No Words Needed: favorite photo from this week >>>>>>>>>

Lesson learned the past few days: patience is a virtue!!

On my Mind: my family reunion next week

Devotionals, Scriptures or spiritual thoughts: Something that I have been trying to keep in mind is that " no outside success can compensate for failure in the home"
