Menu Plan ~ 12/7-12/13's cold outside! I am thinking we will be having some hearty meals this week. Three of the four Christmas parties we are invited to are this week, can we say party overload. I haven't forgotten about those party pictures either! The girls and I headed out to Sams Club today to look around and do some take-backs at Target. And you know we didn't leave Target without our Icee's, even if it was 39 degrees outside. Can you say instant brain freeze...

  1. This is my first visit to your blog. Your girls are just gorgeous! Your menu sounds full of flavor and variety. Thanks for sharing. I host a weekly blog event called Crock Pot Wednesdays. Come on over and link up if you would like.

  2. Your family is so cute, and I'm hoping I can be as organized as you when I have kids. It's so hard, even as a single, but I know it's essential. I've been trying to do better about planning my meals for the week, but I usually just focus on dinner. Thanks for the link.
