Weekly Menu

Here's to hoping there's no more craziness that ensues this week and it can go according to plan!

Monday: Grilling out! Steaks and baked potatoes
Tuesday: Chicken sandwiches and FF (I'm DETERMINED to make this!)
Wednesday: Spaghetti with meatballs, garlic breadd
Thursday: Pizza and breadsticks
Friday: Each are on our own-I'm going on a best friend date and Jon's going to a Red's game!

Today was a B-E-A-UTIFUL day!! Jon and I spent the day together doing a little bit of shopping and getting our rings all pretty and shiny again. :) It was a nice, relaxing date day! When we got home, Jon mowed the grass and I worked on our front porch. I got it swept, cleaned off the windows, the chairs, and the front door got a good scrub, too! Cross a few more things off the list for spring cleaning!

Saturday, I'm hoping to paint the office. Jon has to get the ladder from my FIL's house for me to do that. While we have the ladder, I'm hoping to get the outside windows cleaned, as well.

Have a great week, girls!!

Cross another spring cleaning check off the list!

Today after work, I cleaned out my dresser and my side of the closet. I'm donating 2 bags of clothes and a small bag of shoes. I love how nice and organized everything looks!

Tooth Update

I'm sitting here 2 days post tooth-pulling. The actual procedure was quick and painless. I woke up around 12:30 on Thursday afternoon and thought my jaw was getting ripped in two. It still hurt somewhat yesterday, but I was able to eat more than just mashed potatoes and jello. *thumbs up* Pizza has NEVER tasted so good, I promise. It almost tasted as good as the soft taco I had for lunch. hahaha This morning I feel quite a bit better. My jaw isn't nearly as uncomfortable and I can open my mouth a little further. Hoping for the best! I go back in for a complete exam in May after we get back from vacation!
