Hello tail end of August. Let’s recap the month together!
School is back in session so I’m back to doing some serious meal planning and crock pot using. This week’s menu:
Baked Meatloaf Meatballs Monday – of which I will make too many so that when I treat the kids to spaghetti (tonight) they can have some meatballs in it.
Taco Tuesday – my slow cooker will do the work.
Spaghetti Wednesday – You know I hate pasta and I had contemplated making zoodles but then I was like I am not a true fan of Italian food so…it’s all for the kids!
Lemon Pesto Chicken (Baked) – I’m not using that recipe but you get the idea and I think that recipe does sound great!
Friday means pizza!
Honestly, I’m not. But if I had to share something that creeps through my brain it is probably the fact that I have two elementary school kids now. Last year I had an elementary school kid and a preschool kid. Next year it will be a middle schooler and a first grader. I’m glad I do not have babies but it’s weird to now have two kids who aren’t anywhere near babyhood.
Technically it is still summer so that’s a plus! Not having to pay babysitters is a plus! Oh and being back in Sprint (cycle) is pretty fabulous. I love feeling like I’m about to buy the farm or puke my brains out every class LOL!
We’ve been up to-
No good. Just kidding. August brought beach trips. The kids got to go enjoy the new beach place (with me and my mom) earlier in the month. C started softball in August and she’s loving it! Of course H is all about that birthday for August and he is now a Kindergartener. We spent the weekend in Tennessee at Splash County (part of the Dollywood experience.) My brother was married on Sunday to his baby mama, baby mama (maybe I am the only person who thinks of OutKast when I say that…?)
What I’m dreading-
September is two kids in two different sports and one mama. And we have something going on every weekend (except the first!) of September. It’s going to be a busy (but fun) month!
C’s birthday, a baby shower for my brother’s wife, pumpkin palooza, maybe a new side hustle.
A month of busy. Not bad busy but fun busy! We have a lot of fun events coming up and I like to be able to be creative and useful which is what they allow me to do!
And football returning!!!
Mondays are for RHOC and Southern Charm Savannah
Tuesdays were for Younger but the season ended this week – now I must live for Persil commercials.
Wednesdays are for RHOD even though I don’t really like them.
Thursdays I watched American Woman and then it’s season ended.
Friday & Saturday we are Live PD people (my daughter’s birthday party is Live PD and some of the officers sent her things for her birthday….shhhhh she has no clue!)
This book is 20 years old but I grabbed it from Goodwill and it was freaking awesome.
This became a fast favorite:
I couldn’t finish this one:
Since I got the new ride in July I have been loving the free Sirius XM trial. I have it for another month or so and I decided to subscribe when it trial is over. My favorite channels are 90’s, 2000’s, Coffee Shop, DMB, Garth Channel, 80/90’s Country, and Dan Patrick (I have to have sports talk.)
You know the answer.
I have came to the realization I need some new clothes. Yes more work out clothes (always!) but I have zero pair of jeans I love. Also, after a massive fall/winter clothing sort I may need some other staples too like shirts. LOL!
Loving this look!
Well it’s Labor Day weekend and that means it’s the kick off to my daughter’s 11th birthday (on the 4th!) So I plan to do a few things with her (like a lunch date.) I don’t know if I should throw together the yard sale for this weekend or not. I’m thinking…no. I tried to do one on a holiday weekend before and it didn’t work out. Depending on the weather and what the kids say I may put out some fall décor. I also plan to work in my flower beds and get ready to put some mums out.
