Happy Homemaker Monday - post Superbowl party

I woke up this morning feeling a little ill. Combination of too little sleep and too much junk food from our Super bowl party. Oh the consequences of bad eating at 30 years old. {moan}But, the day has begun and it's time to get on with it... and, find the tums. ;)


The weather:::
Snow is on the ground and some snow-globe-esqe flakes swirling around, cold and gray today.

Right now I am:::
Finishing my cup of French roast with cinnabon creamer {dreamy!}. Debating what household chore to start first.

Thinking:::
I am so thankful for my children and husband. They really do point me to Christ and I learn so much having them in my life. 

On my reading pile:::
Finishing "The Hole in our Holiness" hopefully today! 
"Where is your Pineapple?" by Raelene Phillips

On my TV:::
Hoping to watch last nights episode of Downton Abbey tonight. Only caught a few minutes of it during the Super bowl power outage. Eager! 

Favorite blog post this week:::
Courtney @ Women living well is continuing on with the Valentines day challenge - this weeks challenge is especially fun! KISSING! She says,  "Our men feel stronger, more capable, and built up when we respond to their advances with a smile. Seek to give your husband a back rub, or shower together, be creative! Purpose to kiss your husband like you mean it this week!:)"
 {blush}Check it out here

Something fun to share:::
Monster Bars. :) If you like Monster cookies... you MUST check out and make this fun recipe!

Monday - BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches
Tuesday - Mac n' cheese & steamed broccoli
Weds- Frozen pizza
 Thurs- Fast food :) 
Friday - Not sure about the weekend. 

On my to do list:::
-Laundry day!
-Put folding chairs back in the basement
-Wash windows
-Dust

What I'm creating:::
Sandra has inspired me to pick back up my crochet needles... it's not pretty, but, it's something. Working on a few "play pieces" to refresh my memory.

Homemaking tips:::
Repurpose. 
We had one of those 6 cubicle storage things and two of the slats broke. Rather then tossing the whole thing out - I laid it on its side and slid it into our closet as a shoe holder. It works! 

Looking around the house:::
Folding chairs and plastic cups litter the living room - remnants of a good night with friends. 
WAY too many sweets and snacks left over... need a plan for them or the plan will turn into eating them all and weighing 900 lbs. :/

From the camera:::
My husband is SO creative and fun. He made these worksheets for our party guests last night. The winner won $10! 

On my prayer list:::
Friends battling the loss of a sister
Pregnant friends
we desire to move... just thinking.

Bible verses, Devo:::
So appreciate the endless reminders that waiting on the Lord is always best.

Glad to hear you had fun at your Super Bowl Party. Isn't it crazy how we change over the years? When I was a teen it seemed like I could eat endless sweets and types of food without feeling sick or gaining weight, and now I may as well stock my medicine cabinet with tums and pull out the treadmill before I end up weighing 300lbs. LOL

Love your re-purposing tip.

Oh I completely understand what you mean, I'm turning 39 in a few months and I can't just pig out like I used to. lol

Glad I inspired you to crochet, it's looking great already :) It's addictive, you'll find yourself constantly making things.
