I'm in Love

with this new store that is opening...unfortunately it is in Houston. I live closer to Dallas. I'm thinking road trip :) I love, love, love Heidi Swapp products, but can't seem to find such a variety where I live. I want everything that I see! Ok, can you tell that I love to scrapbook? and Heidi's products?

I mentioned that I went scrap booking this weekend. I was there late Friday night to about 5pm Sunday. I got so much done. It's been awhile, and I'm so,so far behind. Lego boy had asked me for a disposable camera at Disney, so I made him his own album. It turned out so cute. And he loves it. The photos in it, are well, interesting. Lots of floors, walls, food, etc. But he took them and that's all that matters. I also got about 8 pages of Vivian's album done. And I'm going to a friend's house tonight, so hopefully I'll get a few more pages done. I'll post some later.

Menu Plan Monday

I'm back. What a crazy couple of weeks it's been. We went to Disney World...It was actually a good vacation. But when I tell people what all happened, it doesn't sound like it was. We drove from Texas to Florida. 3 hours into the trip, I get my period (lovely :)), then I drove a little that poured when I took over. Then I fell down at the restaurant - and messed up my shoulder pretty bad. Sunday I take over the driving, and no joke, 10 minutes after I take over our oldest throws up! he then throws up in the restaurant that night. Little princess gets diarrhea (running down her legs) Monday at MGM, On Tuesday, my toe hurts a little, I look down and there is blood all over my foot and toe nail is gone. Little Princess gets a rash all over her, I figure "great, scarlet fever" so after she falls down and her tooth cuts her lip, I take her to the first aid station...her lip is fine - got her a Popsicle, as for her rash it's not scarlet fever (thank you God!), It's probably the sun screen, I'm told. Don't put such a high SPF on her. So I drop it down to 30, and the rash is gone....go figure. But despite all that it was a good trip.

This weekend I went scrap nice. I got a lot done.

But enough ranting here is this weeks menu.

Monday - Rotisserie chicken, Caesar salad, rice, veggies (** update (I don't know how to put a line through everything, all well) - I've already blown this weeks menu - I didn't get out to the grocery the kids are having leftovers pasta, ham & cheese husband and I will probably have bean dip w/ chips & watch a movie after the kids go to bed (date night?)<Tuesday - Lemon Garlic Pork chops
Wednesday - Parmesan chicken, scalloped potatoes, corn, creamed spinach
Thursday - tacos, refried beans, rice, chips, salsa, queso, guacamole
Friday - Family pizza and movie night
Saturday - over at my in-laws
Sunday - Spaghetti, cheese bread

Have a great week, and don't forget to check out more menus over at Laura's

Menu Plan Monday - June 4

Well, another week has gone by. And a busy one...although are there any other kind once you have kids? Saturday was my 40th b-day, and I'll love to say it was a great weekend....but I can't. But if I go any more into it, at least today, it will not be a good thing. Let's just say that since my husband's family has never made a big deal out of birthdays (even when there kids were small), but my family always has...well you can guess how it went. Although, I really shouldn't complain. We are heading to Disneyworld next Saturday..and my husband's family and my parents will meet us there. So we will celebrate then....but a cake or something would have been nice :)

So anyway, after all that ranting, here is this weeks menu. I'm trying to use up stuff in the freezer. As always, for more menus be sure to check out Laura's blog.

Monday - pork loin, mashed potatoes, veggies
Tuesday - brisket, french fries, corn-on-the cob
Wednesday - Baked chicken, baked potato, blue berry muffin, brocolli
Thursday - Tacos, refried beans, mexican rice, salsa, chips, queso
Friday - Family movie and pizza night
Saturday - Leave for Disneyworld!!!

3 pound lean brisket
3 Tbsp. liquid smoke
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. onion salt
2 Tbsp. Worcetershire sauce
barbecue sauce

Place brisket in a baking dishy. Combine all ingredients except barbecue sauce and pour over brisket. Cover pan tightly. Bake at 250 for about 5 hours. Top with desired amount of barbeque sauce and bake an additional 15 minutes.
