It’s Just Another Site

I am sure you’ve heard of Pinterest, right? If not, then you’re either still in Winter hibernation or just in denial. I love this site because it helps me figure out meal plans, crafts for the kids, how I want to organize/clean/decorate my house and play dress up in my virtual closet. Fun and fancy, right?! But, now, I’ve been lingering at similar sites.

This first one is foodgawker. Where you can find bajillions of recipes in every category you can imagine. We all need to eat, right?

Second; craftgawker. Where you can explore and excel in the possibilities of becoming the craftiest person ever!

Third; dwellinggawker. Need to spice up the bedroom? Add some flare to your kitchen? This site will help you get fabulous ideas that you want to decorate your house.

And finally, if you are planning your wedding or a wedding, or maybe you want to renew your vows with you beloved. This site is for you! Weddinggawker

You’re welcome.

Whatever you find at each of these sites you can always pin them to your boards on Pinterest.

P.S. Gawker means; to gape or stare stupidly. Well, yeah…..

So, get on gaping!

Make Every Day Count – Giveaway

Click to Close (Make Every Day Count - Teen Edition by Max Lucado)

I really enjoy the writings of Max Lucado. And I am thrilled to be able to share with you a book he has written for pre-teens and teens. Make Every Day Count has easy to read, easy to grasp chapters on how to handle various days that you or your teen encounter.

  • Gratitude
  • Peace
  • Faith
  • Grace

These are examples that Max writes about in the book to help pre-teens and teens guide them on how to choose and make each day count for the better during their stress, guilty, drained days.

I really like how Max adds stories and scripture with the chapters as well. He also added a study guide with questions at the end of the book that your pre-teen or teen can do themselves or in a study group.

I am very thankful to Tommy Nelson for allowing me to give away 1 copy!

If you would like to have a copy of Make Every Day Count, please leave me a comment and let me know;

What advice do you give to your pre-teen/teen before they start his/her day?

This contest will end on Friday March 16, 12:00 p.m 

Contest is over!

Meal Plan – March 12-16

This comic made me laugh! Sometimes I want to charge the princess and 3 jesters for what they don’t eat or don’t finish eating! But, with this weeks’ meal plan, they might just eat what I make every night!

Monday: Penne chicken with veggies. Using zucchini and broccoli as the veggies and a sprinkle or two of Parmesan cheese on top. Simple.

Tuesday: Homemade pizza. I’m going to try Emeril’s basic pizza dough. I have never made pizza dough before, and this recipe looked real basic and simple!

Wednesday: Eat at church night!

Thursday: Tacos. We need something real quick. The princess has a Chorus concert!

Friday: Creamy Chicken TaquitosI’ve always wanted to make taquitos and these look yummy!

What’s on your meal plan this week?

Meal Plan: March 5-9

It’s been eons since I last posted a meal plan on here, actually any kind of post. There are various reasons that I can give you, but, let’s just cut to the chase and tell you what our dinner plans are for this week!

Monday: Baked Ravioli. This dish looks so easy and delicious, plus ravioli is one of my favorites!

Tuesday: Good ole’ Roast with potatoes and carrots simmering in a crock-pot all day….need I say more?

Wednesday: Eat at church night! Yay! A night off!

Thursday: Poppy Seed Chicken Pitas This is a quick, simple dinner to put together. Toss a fruit salad together and you have a well-rounded, balanced meal.

Friday: Sesame Chicken I’ve been kind of on a “Martha” kick, and since my kids love this type of Chinese food, this recipe looked like one they would enjoy made at home.

I hope these meals can be useful to you and your family! If you have a meal plan for this week, I would love to hear what you are cooking up in your kitchen for your family!
