Happy Homemaker Monday Labor Day 2018 Edition

Photo from Momy's Musings

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

The weather..... Oh, you know, the stuff I hate.  Around 90 for the next several days and humid.  BLECH!

Right now I am.... Listening to Third Day on Amazon Music.  Amazon is still my bff. 

Thinking.... The opposite, actually.  I'm trying NOT to think about work.  However, it is difficult when the boss lady keeps texting you. 

On my reading pile....  You can read all about it HERE!  Short version, I'm finishing up "Year One" by Nora Roberts right now. 

On my TV.....
The Flash season 4
Heartland season 5
Days of Our Lives
Young & Restless 
Joyce Meyer

This week's movie..... "Anna Karenina"   The 2012 version.  I think I liked it?  lol  It was sort of odd, yet interesting.  

On the menu for this week.... 

Today I made some 2-ingredient bagels.  Only 3 WW freestyle points each! 


and pumpkin spice:

Labor Day Monday - Grilled bbq chicken, corn on the cob, fresh green beans and red potatoes, deviled eggs, green salad, and crusty rolls 

Tuesday - Leftovers from Labor Day turned into a bbq chicken quinoa bowl 

Wednesday -  Most likely will be something quick and cheap!  BK veggie burger? Wendy's chili?

Thursday - Doritos taco salad 

Friday - Garlic & herb fish with rice pilaf and roasted brussels sprouts

Saturday - Family dinner - maybe breakfast for dinner?  or burgers?  Anyone?  

On my to do list.... 

  1. Making the deviled eggs
  2. Snapping green beans
  3. Shucking corn
  4. Taking Emily driving
  5. Family Uno night 
  6. 2-3 loads of laundry
  7. A few reports I need to type up for work 
  8. Read
  9. Bible study 

In my planners....  

Random picture....


  1. The Everything Bagels look so good. I'm going to try and make those. I watch Days of Our Lives too. Hope you have a great week!

    1. I watched DOOL from about 1983 to 1998 and then motherhood and work, etc. I just picked it back up about 6 months ago and I am so amazed that so many of the main characters are still there! I love it!

  2. That food looks so yummy. I’m excited for fall, mostly because summer is too hot for me. Good luck with your to-do list. Have a good week.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Summer is too hot for me too. Today it is actually chilly in my house! I love it!

  3. Your planner is so cute!!! And you really should check out the classic Anna Kerenina. I LOVE Vivian Leigh, and she's Anna in that version. It is a bit odd- but I like the older one better. Actually I dislike the 2012 version very much mostly because I was watching it the night I couldn't sleep because I was having a horrible gallbladder attack lol and had surgery the next day! But even if it wasn't for really bad memories, I would have liked the older one better :) Hope you have an amazing week!

    1. Thanks about the planner :) I used to go all out but it's so time consuming! lol I will DEFINITELY check out the original!!!! I LOVE Vivan Leigh! I didn't know! Sorry about the gallbladder attack during the movie! You'll forever associate the two. I remember watching The Parent Trap while being in labor with my daughter 22 years ago and will never forget! Ha!

  4. I adore your planner! Its so darn cute! praying you have a wonderful week! I enjoyed stopping by!

    1. Awww thank you! It's a stress reliever for me to plan!

  5. The humidity in my area is killing me, I straightened my hair and it's all frizz and nothing more lol

    Love your planner. Hope you have a fantastic week Sherry :)

    1. Nothing worse than humidity! Emily's hair is like that. She's always fighting the frizz!

  6. What a sweet kitty! Do you have a recipe for the 2 ingredient bagels? Sounds interesting. Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. Sorry it took me so long! Here is the recipe for the bagels (but I just use self-rising flour instead of flour and baking powder)

  7. That cat is beautiful! Looks like my son's cat. Your menu sure is appetizing. Have a great week

    1. Thank you :) He thinks hes pretty handsome too! lol

  8. Your food pictures look really good! Hope you had a GREAT week - sorry I'm so late this week.
