Week at a Glance | February 12-18

meal planI can't chat about the week to come without touching on the week that was... what. a. week! If you read last Sunday's blog post, you know I had a lot on the go. While my planner was definitely packed, I thought I had it all choreographed perfectly, and I did, until we had two snow storms! Now that I'm on the other side of things, I can chuckle over the chaos, but while in the thick of it, it was rough going. The hardest challenge that I'm currently dealing with is juggling between my online content and KonMari business while still being a full-time stay at home mom. I'm in the process of trying to establish childcare for at least a couple of days a week, but until that gets sorted... coffee (and prayer)! Having two storm days really threw everything for a loop, but was also a good wake up call in terms of scheduling and really planning ahead.

Despite the nuttiness, we still managed to have some fun, too! There is something exciting and cozy about snow days and I swear I get as giddy as Hudson when we receive notice of no school. The kids spent lots of time in the new snow, watching movies and enjoying some crafting. Hudson had his first piano lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it!

This week, while busy, isn't nearly as hectic as the last. Valentine's Day is only a few days away and I haven't done a single thing! I'm hoping to be able to square away the kid's school goodies and decorate a little on Sunday (I'll share, of course). On the project front, I'm looking forward to Mairi's new bed arriving so we can finish updating her bedroom. My other task of organizing and decorating my office is taking much longer than I anticipated, but there's really no deadline, so I'm simply working on it when I find I have the time. I'd like to look at doing something fun next weekend with the family, suggestions are welcome!

Meal plan is another simple one this week. With some messy weather heading our way, I'm hesitant to plan for anything too complicated.

Weekly Meal Plan – February 12-18 Sunday – Slow-cooker chicken and stuffing, potatoes and root veggies Monday – Baked mac & cheese, spinach salad Tuesday – Turkey Ranch wraps and veggie sticks Wednesday – Breakfast for supper Thursday – Baked salmon, wild rice, roasted veggies Friday – Tacos Saturday – Chilli

Wishing you all a wonderful and relaxing week ahead!

week at a glance

Look at me go... two weeks in a row posting my week at a glance and this week I'm adding a video! I won't make any commitment that I'll be doing a video every Sunday, but at the least I'll be sharing our weekly meal plans.

I chatted a lot in the video I posted, so I'll keep things short & sweet on the blog for this week. Check out the video below for details on what's going on this week and a look at my two Happy Planners.

Weekly Meal Plan – Jan 29-Feb 4 Sunday – Fish, steamed veggies, potatoes Monday – Marinara (Kirkland brand) sauce & pasta, salad, rolls Tuesday – Tuna melts & veggie sticks Wednesday – Frozen Pulled Chicken over rice Thursday – Mexican Bake Friday - Homemade pizza Saturday - Oven stew (Rob's own recipe which he knows by memory, but will take notes of so I can share)

I wish you a wonderful start to February!

Week at a Glance | Jan 22-28

Let's pretend it hasn't been nearly a year since I last posted to my blog and just carry on, okay?... My Week at a Glance videos have always been pretty popular on my channel, but like my blog, I dropped the ball (whoops!). For 2017 I'd like to pick it back up, but keep things simple by primary posting here. If I'm able to swing it on our busy Sundays, I'll also do a video sharing my planner spread.

I'm really looking forward to this week. On the home front, it's a relatively easy one and I'm always thankful for those! Today Rob installed a floating shelf above my office desk and now I feel more inspired than ever to focus on creating a space of my own to reserve for work. I'll be sharing the decor and organization in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! I'm also finishing up organizing my jewelry and will be hopefully filming and posting that video in the coming days.

We've been in a real rut as of late with seemingly having the same meals over and over. So for this week's meal plan, I went straight to Pinterest for recipe inspiration and found what I hope will be a couple winners to add to the mix.

 

Weekly Meal Plan - Jan 22-28 Sunday - Marinara (Kirkland brand) sauce & pasta, salad, rolls Monday - Shepherd's Pie (my own recipes, which I promise I will do a post on soon) Tuesday - Veggie Stir-fry Wednesday - Easy Alfredo Casserole Thursday - Pan fried haddock, potato, steamed veggies Friday - Chicken Burrito Bowls

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!
