Monday, you’re here again, but a bit more bearable with the recent time change! Luckily we messed up Hailey’s bedtime so much by keeping her out late on Halloween, that she’s been on the new schedule for days now!
Our best attempt at a family shot- ha! And yes, Hailey changed from a Hailien to a tigger. Way warmer.
This weekend was full of friend time. We helped Hailey’s best friend, celebrate her big 0-1!
Smart girl ate the icing off the top. Homemade vanilla buttercream is the bomb.
I also made a trip down to Greenville SC to spend some time with my buddy, Crawford! He is so much fun!
I had fun with his mom, too. Alexis and Jenny live in Atlanta, so meeting at Christen’s house in Greenville is a halfway point. It’s nice when we can meet up and spend time together.
We went out downtown, watched Georgia beat Ole Miss, watched Alabama squeak by LSU and watched college kids make out on the dance floor. Seriously? Ew. That is so gross.
We also spotted Bachelor contestant, Holly, out and about. I risked my embarrassment of being caught to snap a picture for you guys!
OK, I didn’t get caught, but I’m still embarrassed. Pretty stealth, though, no? Yet another “celeb” from the show I’ve found out at night.
Sunday I was back home with my sweet fam and meal planning on my mind. I just feel like the dollar isn’t going as far at the grocery as it used to. Dang economy! I decided to focus in on doing a better job with meal planning and it worked. $91 for groceries for the week (assuming I don’t have to go back to the store!)
Sunday- Pot Roast
Monday- Vegetable, Beef and Barley soup
Tuesday- Buffalo chicken sandwiches and Roasted Broccoli
Wednesday- Greek Orzo Stuffed Peppers and Salad
Thursday- Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese
Friday- Homemade Pizza
I haven’t made pot roast in forever and forgot how amaaaaazing it makes the house smell!
We made sure to fit in our family mile for #operationskinnydog and then I called it a night at 8:30 by falling asleep on the couch.
That, my friends, is a good weekend. I hope yours was, too!
What’s your favorite cheap meal?
Right now mine is vegetable soup, but I try to beef it up a bit for the hubby.
