Happy Monday meal planners! How are your meal planning goals going so far this year? We are in week 3 of 2017, and if you are struggling, what do you think is the issue? Is it time to meal plan? Is it ideas and creativity? For me, I just get "uninspired" and bored. So I push through and realize that if my family was unhappy with my plans, I would hear about it FOR SURE!

Welcome back! How is your New Year going? Last week felt like the LONGEST four day week ever . . .anyone else?? Our week ahead is a busy one, packed with music programs at BOTH kids' schools, a work trip for dad and a night out for mom. I find busy weeks the most challenging to plan for, particularly with picky eaters.
But keeping those busy nights in mind, helps me to plan accordingly, so that I don't defrost a big piece of meat on a night we have only an hour between school and an event. I also try to make meals that will create leftovers before busy nights, so that we have foods we can grab quickly. What are some of your favorite busy-night tips?

A great wardrobe is built around basics. It seems simple and boring, but it works. If your closet is full of trendy, fun pieces you will never have anything to wear. If you build your wardrobe on a few basics, you will have a foundation to not only wear on their own, but to wear WITH those fun, trendy pieces, extending your outfit options even more.
