Goals For March

I've been hoping to get back to posting regularly for quite a while now, and I'm still hoping to get back to at least three times a week.  Thank you so much for sticking with me in the meantime!

March starts on Thursday this week.  Ummm, where did February go?  I think I missed it!

I'm hoping to post on my goals for January and February next week but right now, here are my goals for March:

* Wash Face Nightly - I have acne and I hate washing my face but it's a necessity. I know that if I was more diligent about this, I would have less acne.  So this is my "small goal" for this month.
* Figure out a way to attend 3 Jazzercise Classes a week - I teach two but really should attend three times a week.  I practice daily at home, reviewing routines and learning new ones but I love going to class and I miss seeing my friends at the other classes.  Plus, it's just good to see other people teaching!
* Update budget - we need to sit down and do a review and update …

Menu Plan "Monday" - Week of February 26, 2012

This week is just flying by - and fast too!  We totally forgot that we have several things happening on Saturday this week, the kids are leading worship with the rest of their class on Sunday AM (March 4) at the church affiliated with their school, John's leading Lenten worship on Wednesday night, and my students had their second test of the year on Monday.  We have 8 people coming and staying with us Friday through Sunday.  Missy had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic she was on for strep throat (she was one giant, puffy red polka dot) and we had a major plumbing problem already this week!  Oh, and my Dad is turning 80 on Friday.  The party is later this month, but we definitely have to do something on Friday!  Every time I think things are going to calm down, they just plain don't!  I think I'm okay with that though.....

Anyway, what are we eating this week:

Sunday, February 26:
    Breakfast: Cereal and Milk
    Lunch/Dinner: With Friends
    Snack: Caramel Rolls (…

Menu Plan Monday - Week of February 19, 2012

Our crab legs for my husband's birthday back in January - yum! 
Oh, my, I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted here.  *Sigh*  I knew it had been a while, but I didn't realize it had been that long. 

Our pantry month went well and we had enough meat left over that we've been able to keep going in a way, staying well under our weekly grocery budget and stocking up at the same time.  I'm hoping to keep it up!   The crab legs in the picture were for my husband's birthday the beginning of January - the only time of the year we get them.  They were wonderfully decadent and we have enough crab meat leftover in the freezer for crab cakes later this month!  Yum!
Here's what we're eating this week:

   Breakfast: Yogurt
   Lunch: Buttermilk Coffee Cake, Bacon, Oranges
   Dinner:  Hamburgers, Steamed Broccoli, Oven Fries
