Menu Plan Monday - Week of September 29th

Another weekend quickly passed.

On Friday, the kids and I took a little field trip to a car dealership to pick up a part for my car.  Oh yeah, earlier in the week my car got a serious illness in that it decided to suddenly stop working requiring a $70 tow and roughly $300 in parts to fix.  Lovely.  It could have been much worse and lucky for me my dad was able to make the repair.  Huge thanks to him!  The visit to the dealership was definitely the highlight of car-obsessed Jack's week.  He's still talking about it.

Saturday, I finished up a project for Molly's room that I've been working on for a few weeks now.  I'm super excited with how it turned out!  Pics to come soon.  We also moved the furniture around in Molly's room, but it's still not right.  Mark is super excited to move things again.

Sunday, we visited my parents and shuffled cars around so that I could get my car back.  Jack and I did some grocery shopping and then it was home to wash and fold a mountain of laundry while watching the series finale of Breaking Bad.  Ermahgerd.

This week is kind of huge in that I'm leaving my babies for 4 days (I'm trying not to think about it) to take a birth doula training workshop.  It's a huge step in the certification process and lucky for me it's offered locally, but it's 38 1/2 hours over the course of those 4 days so pretty intense.  (Oh hey, I'm working on becoming a DONA certified birth doula!)  I'll be gone first thing in the morning and won't get home until pretty late in the evening each of those days.  It's going to be really strange, but they're in good hands as Mark will be taking over child care for those days.  Good luck to him!

  1. Your menu looks amazing. I'd come over for dinner any night. :-) Hope your workshop goes well. It would be neat to be a doula.
