Happy Homemaker Monday


The weather in my neck of the woods:

It will be in the mid-eighties ALL WEEK! If there was no humidity it would be the perfect week!

Things that make me happy:
Going swimming with Jeremy and Layla. Layla paddles so hard around the big pool! She doesn't even need us to hold on to her anymore!

Book I'm reading:
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I've heard so many good things about it, and all my friends know that I'm an Austen fan so they've been asking if I've read it. I'm about 10 chapters in and I hate it already.

What I'm enjoying on TV:
The Bachelorette
World Cup soccer games...sorry I mean, football games =)

On the menu for dinner:
I've got pork chops cooking away in the crock pot.

On my To Do List:
Get rid of this head ache.
Finish cleaning the kitchen.
Go swimming with Layla and Jeremy when the Brazil-Chile game is over.

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
I want to make my mom's sloppy joes recipe with homemade scones. Those were some yummy scones!!!! (Mom, please E-mail me the recipe if I forget to ask you!)

In the craft basket:
Candle holders from glass jars.

Looking forward to this week:
Warm weather and ZERO thunderstorms or rain of any sort in our near future!

Tips and Tricks:
On long car trips pack a cooler with drinks and refreshments so you don't have to stop every time one person gets the munchies.

My favorite blog post this week:
RunnerDude's post on the responsibility parents have to keep their children active and healthy. He offers tips on how to make it fun for them and not a chore so it gives them an active lifestyle. Inspire, don't require!

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Please check out my Charity Running blog. I am going to try and update more often. If you can please visit the site and donate. The money is going to an AMAZING cause!

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share)

On my mind:

Hurrying and getting my chores done so I can go SWIMMING with my family!

I'm not into zombies and vampires so haven't read any of those books. I love the picture up added. She's a cutie! Have a great day!
