Weekly Meal Plan

Weekly Meal Plan (August 17-23) | and Recap

We are in week two of spending less at the grocery store, and going down from eating out once a week to only once a month (two more weeks to go on that!) Last week, I stuck to the plan but the nights didn't match the meals (not that it matters). Here's a recap of… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan (August 17-23) | and Recap

Weekly Meal Plan (August 10-16)

I have been meal planning while away from blogging, but I have to say, my choices tend to be healthier (less convenience foods) when I know I have an audience! lol In addition to healthy, I also need to make more economical meals these days, which is difficult for me to do as I am… Continue reading Weekly Meal Plan (August 10-16)

Beauty Product Review ~ e.l.f. Brow Pencil

My current brow pencil (by Maybelline) bit the dust last week when I was attempting to sharpen it one last time. It was tiny and I should have seen it coming, but it still shocked me when the tip broke off and it couldn't be saved because the end got stuck in the sharpener.

It's kind of like using cloth diapers instead of disposables - it's adds a little bit of work… Continue reading My 3 Sons Handcrafted ~ Pocket Pads

Lavender Lane ~ Wool Dryer Balls

In my continued efforts to save money and be kinder to the environment, I have started using wool dryer balls in place of dryer sheets. I attempted to make my own a few years ago but failed pretty miserably. I went back to sheets after they unraveled in my dryer; apparently you need to know how… Continue reading Lavender Lane ~ Wool Dryer Balls

Thoughts & Happenings 1/2/17

It is (quite literally) a dark and stormy night here in Georgia. It's been raining all weekend! A bit of a dreary way to ring in the new year, but oh well, it is what it is and there are sure to be sunny days ahead. ;) Oh, and happy new year! Did you stay up?… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 1/2/17
