Happy Homemaker Monday

Happy Monday! It's gorgeous here - sunny, bright, and were it not for the coldness...could easily pass for Spring. SPRING IS COMING!

The weather::: I think it will be in the 40's today. But, I'll take it with all this sunshine!

On my reading pile::: "Made to Crave", "The Meaning of Marriage", and threw in a new one this week {refresher} "A life that says welcome" by Karen Ehman. For anyone who struggles with hospitality or how to do this whole welcoming people into your home stuff. :)

On my TV::: It's a TV off kinda day :) We did watch "Beauty and the Beast" this morning tho.

On the menu for this week:::

Monday - Invited over to someones home tonight for din-din! Score!

Tuesday - Oven baked chicken fingers and Fries

Wednesday - B-dubs with my cell group girls :)

Thursday - Curried Beef Stir fry

Friday - Calico Eggs & Sausage breadstix

Saturday - Chipotle Marmalade Chicken in the ol' crock pot

Sunday - Italian Beef & Shells... OR... possibly going out somewhere nice to host a friend. :)

On my to do list::: It's laundry day. Since there was a snake in our basement last week I didn't get a lot done - now we have MOUNDS. But, praise God for clothes! Also - lots of organizing and purging. I have spring cleaning in my blood.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating::: Still the baby blanket :)

Looking around the house::: Messy, messy, messy... should I even be on here right now?! {grin}

From the camera::: I cannot believe 9 months has passed. My itty bitty is 9 months old. My bigger girl is now 3. TimeFLIES! {sniff sniff}

Something fun to share::: In my attempts to lose weight - I'm loving WEIGHT WATCHERS and their e-tools. If you are at all considering... let this be your gentle push. :) I've lost 10 lbs and hope to keep on going! Online stuff is great, meetings are enjoyable and I love being able to eat whatever I want.

On my prayer list::: My cell group teen girls. Our music pastor search at church. To be diligent in my work today.

Bible verse, Devotional::: Psalm 27 was awesome today. { I try and read a psalm and prov. a day}. Verse 14 was such a great reminder to WAIT on the Lord and remember to find my strength in him... not my husband, my children or my coffee.

"Wait with hope for the Lord. Be strong, and let your heart be courageous. Yes, wait with hope for the Lord." Psalm 27:14
