Oh, Hey Friday! 7.11.14

Oh, hey new linkup!  I was kind of missing the old one, so thanks to sweet Karli for starting this up again!  Where else can I be random on a weekly basis?

ONE

Chris starts his new job this coming Wednesday and he’s so excited.  I haven’t seen him so excited about work in a long time, and I’m so proud of him for working at it to get what he wanted.  That husband of mine is pretty great.  Abbie thinks so too.

Sophia’s baptism is this Sunday, and I’m so excited to finally meet my goddaughter.  Hopefully it’ll satisfy my cravings for baby snuggles for a while…and fingers crossed Abbie is good for this.  Toddlers are so unpredictable, you never know what’ll happen!  Nichole’s mom is having some medical issues this week though, and we’re all hoping and praying she’s better by Sunday.  Sophia needs her grandma there!

THREE

I can’t believe I forgot to share this, but you may have happened to see this little video that went viral…it was on the news, Facebook, and pretty much everywhere else.  It’s Chris’ Aunt Claudia in the video!  She’s been through a lot in her life, so it was amazing to see something like this happen for her.  Chris is now lobbying for Abbie to get the position of flower girl…

FOUR

I’m kind of in a slump for our meal planning – I’m getting tired of having the same things all the time.  You guys have any new ideas?  We eat pretty much anything (well, not really spicy stuff), and I look for fast and budget friendly.  Not a ton of pasta either – we try to limit that to once a week.  Any thoughts?

FIVE

Can I just give a big hooray for the weekend?  Oh, and make sure you’ve entered the cash giveaway here…and that if you win, you get me a little something with it.  I mean, it’s only fair, right?

  1. I have some really great recipes under the ‘Eats’ tab on my blog. Granted, I’m not sure how diet friendly they are but they are budget and portion friendly so they are winners in my book. Have a great weekend!

  2. I have an electric pressure cooker and LOVE it. My go to cookbooks for it are the Bob Warden pressure cooker cookbooks. Also last week I made the Doritos casserole that’s on pinterest. It was delicious.
