Goodbye Vlog! MPM {kind of}! Our {colorful} weekend!

Hey hey!  Happy Monday! 

While I don’t have much of a Meal Planning Monday to share today, I just had to post, if for no other reason than to get that ridiculous vlog off the screen.  Ugh.  I wouldn’t be surprised if listening to your own voice recording is considered a form of torture in some countries.  It’s that bad.


The kids were out of school today and I took the day off of work.  So we spent the morning at the Pumpkin Patch and the afternoon cuddled in the living room watching movies.  Top 10 day, for sure.  Now I’m trying to convince myself that the house will NOT decorate itself for the fall and that I need to seize the day and just get!it!done!already.  My mom, very wisely, suggested to skip the fall decorating all together and just throw the Christmas tree up now.  And that, my friends, is why I love her.  She just gets me.  My husband, on the other hand?  He may not value the progressive, simplified thinking behind skipping season.  Boo. 

Moving on.

We had a really, really fun weekend. 

Friday night we enjoyed dinner with my family, then I did a little kid-free shopping/errand running.

We called on our “village” for help with the kids Saturday morning, as Little Man had a baseball game at about the same time that J and I needed to be heading downtown for our first ever Color Run. Yay for helpful grandparents AND fun runs with friends!  Here are just a few pics from the day.

Before the most colorful 20 minutes of our lives:

Yesterday the kids and I headed to church while J worked at the rental.  God willing, it’ll be ready for another tenant SOON.  If you know of anyone looking for a clean, freshly painted, newly floored, one bedroom, teeny tiny cinder block house in the ghetto of DM, send them our way! :)  The afternoon was spent watching football and relaxing before we got all prettied up for family pictures with our awesome neighbor, Emily, of EL Photography & Design.  To say I’m excited to see the images is an understatement!  Stay tuned.  This will NOT be the last you hear of this.

And that brings me to this week.  I haven’t had the chance to meal plan OR get groceries yet, so we’re sticking to leftovers and a few meals from the pantry.

Monday: Sweet and Spicy Crockpot Meatballs (carried over from last week)

Tuesday: Bubble Up Enchiladas

Wednesday: ???

Thursday: I’m taking a soup to the preschool teacher appreciation luncheon, so I’ll likely double the batch for dinner.

Friday:  ???

There you have it!  A filler post to move that vlogging nonsense off the screen. You’re welcome.
