Menu Monday-not so much....

Let me start by saying I had full intentions on starting a new series of posts on here titles menu Monday (that would obviously be posted on Mondays).  Well this is my first update this week so needless to say Menu Monday didn't happen. 
But to try to get back on track I decided I would put up our menu for this week today...wacky Wednesday I guess.

Monday- Southern Living Creamy Pork Chops and Au Gratin potatoes
Tuesday-Wendy's (not a fan of this fact, because we are trying to cut back on eating out. Nathan had his last flag football game so we ended up doing fast and over priced food).
Wednesday-Dinner at church. 
Thursday-Nathan's football team is having a pizza party so it looks as if we are eating out again.
Friday-London Broil and mashed potatoes.  ( I have never had a London Broil until recently.  It is a fairly inexpensive cut of meat, but if it's cooked right it can be tasty!)
Saturday-Chicken roll up (Chicken, Cream Cheese, and chives) and wild rice

Well there you have it!  This week's menu isn't too exciting, but hopefully next week's will be. 

I am still trying to cut back on our grocery cost.  I am loving the coupon game (I'm a big nerd), but last trip to the store I saved $80+ on our bill. 
I will try to start posting tips on here too!

No Excuses

Nathan is gone to spend his Fall Break with my parents. Now I have no excuses now to get things around the house finished. I know y'all are green with envy. ;)

The boring list includes and is not limited to....

  1. Tackle our own version of Mt. Everest (AKA the laundry pile).
  2. Clean Nathan's room top to bottom.
  3. Organize closets.
  4. Finish painting the bedroom (yuck).
  5. Paint the hallway
  6. Organize the family room.
  7. Clean the bathrooms (double yuck).
  8. Organize kitchen cabinets.
  9. Fix my sewing machine that I have had for three years and never used.
  10. Vaccume the floors.
  11. Mop the floors.

I'm supposed to be helping Tripp clean up the kitchen right now, but I told him I was indisposed. ;)
I better go I think he is in the vicinity of hearing the click clack of the keyboard....

Folks of Kentucky (Lexington and surronding areas)

I have been following Libby's (Don't Waste Your Cancer) story on here for quite sometime now. Now there is a way central Kentuckians can help her and her family!

Libby's story has really touched me. I have been praying for her and her family daily. Even if you can't make it to this event I'm asking you to please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and read her story. She is an inspiration.
