We painted last Saturday/Sunday and we are moving in this coming Saturday! We are SO excited!
This is my first time, but I thought I would give this a try. You can post your weekly menus each monday and it reminds you to plan and gives you a chance to see others menus. Just go to orgjunkie.com to see lots of other menus if you want to check it out.
Well, this week there is some fasting going on in my house and we are working on moving into our new house this week/weekend. So, the menu isn't too exciting, but I wanted to start nonetheless.
Breakfasts: organic brown rice cakes w/peanut butter(they are actually good and filling), vanilla yogurt, and cinnamon tea w/Stevia
Lunches: out to eat some, tuna fish w/crackers or wheat bread, egg salad on wheat bread, string cheese, veggies
Dinners: Homemade chili, grilled chicken, mexican night at small group...need more quick ideas for this busy week.
Well, that wasn't too exciting, but I'm hoping it will motivate me to start planning more!

i just returned from Michigan on Sunday afternoon for Alicia's wedding! it was so wonderful because I was able to spend lots of time with her the few days before the wedding. we both couldn't believe it had been 2 years. thank goodness for phones...it seemed like not a day had passed since we had seen each other! she was a gorgeous bride and everything was perfect at the wedding! i can't imagine her wanting to change a thing! hopefully i can post pictures soon! it was fun getting to see old and new friends from teen mania too! i also loved getting to know her family so much more! it only made me feel closer to her! i love them a lot too now! i don't typically feel comfortable in new situations like that...i was staying at their house...and i often worry about imposing, but they made me feel welcome.
we are closing on a house on august 14th! so much is happening right now. we haven't even begun packing!! ahh!! we are excited! i am praying that the monthly payment turns out to be what we need it to be. please pray for favor for us as I am worried. gosh, it still feels like there is so much more i could update on, but i don't want to overload you! i'll be back soon:)
