It's Friday! The only thing that makes me happier than is if someone would grocery shop for me then load it in my car for me, BUT wait...that happened! What????
This week in blogging:
Monday: My blog buddy Jacquelyn nominated me for the Liebster award. Check out my post to find out more random facts about me.
Tuesday: I have a few special friends that have said goodbye to their sweet children too early. Tuesday's post was dedicated to them in the midst of their grieving, and what we can do for them.
Wednesday: I reviewed the new (new to me) grocery pickup at WalMart. If you missed it, definitely check out that post. It is a game changer.
A couple of weeks ago I saw the table below listed for $25 on an online garage sale site and had to have it. Jess had a bit of an accident this fall on our not-so-sturdy patio chairs that resulted in staples to the back of his head, and the chairs being trashed ASAP! So, we were in need of a new set, and I am all about a bargain.
This is a sturdy, wrought iron set that just needed a little TLC.
I just knew I wanted to paint it Seaside Blue (aka turquoise), and he was like...what? A blue table?
And sister, was all, "What are you thinking, Mommy?"
But, seven cans of spray paint later (and yes, if you're doing the math in your head,we spent more on the paint than the table) we have a finished product. I am still shopping for the perfect seat cushion. I have been to no less than 20 stores this week to find the right one, but it hasn't happened yet. I'm thinking coral and white...
THREEJess' preschool had their annual Round-Up, which is basically a fundraiser dinner where the kids perform. I loved watching him sing and dance. It was so fun! I love his little personality.
He was actually "whipping" here (whip, nay, nay), is that not the most serious whip, you have ever seen?
FOURJess' preschool also holds a live auction after the performance. I initially said, I did not need a bidding number, because I had not planned on purchasing anything, but thank goodness I changed my mind. The first item up was this beautiful cutting board. We needed a new wooden cutting board because I put mine in the dishwasher. I know what you're thinking...wooden cutting boards don't go in the dishwasher. What I didn't know was that you aren't suppose to cut raw chicken on a wooden cutting board. When my husband found out I had done that he
It may come as a shock to those of you that know I have been eating the Trim Healthy Mama way since August that I just now bought the cookbook! I have the original book that explains the plan and some recipes, but I just got the "official" cookbook this week. I LOVE it! So far this week I have made the Lazy Lasagna, Cajun Chicken, Tilapia Veracruz and am planning the Chicken Bang Bang tonight. They were all delicious and even my sometimes picky kids ate it up. If you are looking for some new ideas that are healthy and family friendly, I definitely recommend this book (I just had a Reading Rainbow flashback, anyone else?) Right now, this book is under $16 on Amazon.
Thanks for spending a little time with me this week. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
