Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 - Week 8

Weekly Meal Plan Ideas sharing real food for real families. Save time and money by planning easy menus for your family.

Long weekends can be good for the soul, can't they? Did you have a long weekend this past weekend? Perhaps you are off today as well? I am heading into the office today, but the rest of my beloved family is at home, relaxing and hanging out. We are planning to meet up for an early family dinner tonight.

Going out to eat during the week, is a rare treat. Typically I feel as if the rush between school, after school activities, dinner and bedtime is enough and we shouldn't throw one more thing into the mix!  But since everyone is off today, we are going out. (Also, mom is sitting on an education panel tonight and doesn't feel like cooking)

49 Things I Am Grateful For on My 49th Birthday

49 Things I am Grateful for on My 49th Birthday

Birthdays roll around once a year. Like it or not, every 365 days we add another number to our age. For years, when we are kids, we can't wait to get older. As we move into early adulthood, that eagerness begins to wane. Sometime around 30 the groans begin. Before you know it, you're 40, and then 40something . . .

I've always considered age nothing but a number, it truly is about how you feel. With 50 as my next approaching number in a short 365 days, I'd be lying if I told you I haven't considered what getting "older" means to me and how it makes me feel. Want to know a secret? I feel pretty good about heading into the second half of my life.

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 - Week 7

Happy Monday meal planners! It's been quite a week around here and I am definitely off my game. Last week, my oldest son lost a friend and teammate suddenly. It was his first experience with the death of someone close to him, that he was old enough to understand. As a mom, seeing her worst nightmare come to life for a loving and wonderful family, as well as her own child struggle with the anxiety and feelings of loss, it's been a week.
