Happy Homemaker and Menu Plan Monday! August 13th, 2018

I am linking up with Sandra from Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday

I joined Weight Watchers at the beginning of the year.  I was doing really well, then I found out about my sister's illness.  I quit for about 3 months.  Then it took a while for me to get back on track, but I finally did!  Things are going well.  I hit 30 pounds lost and got a reward haircut yesterday!  

The weather..... Sunny and in the 80s.  I'm hiding out in the AC today. 

Right now I am.... Meal prepping, dishes, laundry, and watching YouTube videos. 

Thinking.... that the weekends go way too fast! 

What I bought this week....  Aside from a couple of e-books that were on a great sale, I got some Bible highlighters from Amazon, a new nailpolish, a shower pouf, and some much-needed cooking utensils. 

On my reading pile... I finished "Her Last Goodbye" this week and it was pretty good.  4*  

Now I am reading Blake Crouch's "Dark Matter".  Also still working on "The Lake House".  

On my TV..... 
Finished binge-watching "Arrow".  Now I'm on to "Black Lightning".  
Days of our Lives
Young & Restless
Lots of WW YouTube videos 

On the menu for this week....
Monday - I;m making the WW bacon cheeseburger pasta from last week 
Tuesday - Eggroll in a bowl 
Wednesday - Turkey burgers and broccoli cheese tots 
Thursday - It's my sister's birthdays, we're having grilled steaks, corn on the cob, baked potatoes 
Friday - Turkey tacos black beans and corn 
Saturday Sloppy joes with broccoli cheese potato 
Sunday - Chicken and rice from The Skinnyish Dish 

Skinnyish Dish

On my to do list....   
Bible Study
Take my sis for bloodwork 
Family dinner/game night 
Weight Watchers meeting 
Go driving with Emily 

In my planners this week....

Looking forward to this week.... My bosses are on vacation!  YAYAYAYAYYAY!!!!! 

Looking around the house....  We need more room.  As much as I love living here, it's too small for the 3 of us.  I have to start really thinking about what is going to come next. 

Current Bible study:  Beth Moore's Daniel.  Starting the second week. 


From my camera this week:  My baby Sammy.  

I'm also linking up with Laura and I'm an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday! 


  1. No idea why all your images aren't showing up for me. Congrats on the weight loss! Oh, I need to catch up on both Arrow and Black Lightning if things ever slow down around here. Really like both shows. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at Black Lightning! I hadn't heard of it until my daughter mentioned it. I love the actor who plays him, He was in another show I loved, "Hart of Dixie". Arrow season 6 was not as good as the other seasons - but maybe it was just me!

  2. The pictures aren't showing up for me either.
    WTG with the weight loss.

    Have a great week

    1. Oh no :( I will have to look into that! And thanks for the congrats! Hope you are having a great week!

  3. No pictures here. Just shows where the images are supposed to be. Hope you get it figured out. Congratulations on the weight-loss! That's awesome! Menus look great! Hope you're enjoying the week with no bosses! LOL! Have a good one! :)
