This morning Connor and I decided to be lazy and lay in bed all morning. I know I’ve said this before but I feel like a entirely different person since he was born. I feel like I finally know what I am meant to do. Being Connor’s mommy is the best job in the whole world.

It was a beautiful weekend here in Midland. Saturday afternoon was 65 degrees of sunny goodness and we moved to the porch to enjoy it. Connor loved it also!
Here’s this weeks meal plan. Hopefully I do better at cooking this week than last week. I was super lazy last week.

Tonight: sweet and sour chicken with brown rice
Tuesday: pot roast, mashed potatoes and salad
Wednesday: forgotten chicken
Thursday: slow cooker pulled pork sandwiches
Friday: take out

I think I was enjoying his first snow more than he was

I’m so excited to get back to a schedule again. I love the holidays but with all the parties and get togethers we eat out more than in and that gets expensive. It also makes it a little hard to stay healthy. Here’s this week’s plan.

Tonight: pork chops in a pesto sauce with pasta and green beans
Tuesday: chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and corn
Wednesday: sautéed chicken and creamy garlic pasta
Thursday: breakfast burritos

New year, new me

January 2nd, 2013

Happy 2013! I have never been good at keeping resolutions. I normally end up breaking them as soon as I set them. But, I do want to take an inventory of my life and set some goals for this year. Mainly, my relationship with God, my new little family, my church work and my surroundings.

Becoming a mom has completely turned my world upside down. Now I have a little boy to focus on rather than myself and I feel like I am finally doing what God created me to do. I never really decided on a career and I always wondered what God had in store for me. Now I know, I was created to be a wife and mom.

This first year of his life is important and I want to make sure I instill good, Godly things in his life. I have to also make sure I don’t forget about my wife hat. I’ve never really understood the Proverbs 31 wife stuff until now. This year is going to be about seeking Him to find out exactly how to find the balance between wife, mom, homemaker, praise and worship leader, and so on.

I also have a new vision for this little space of mine. I am going to start doing the meal plans again and of course post TONS of Connor photos. I’m also going to pray and seek God about what God will have for this space. If I can use it for His glory also that is an added bonus!

Merry Christmas

We had a nice, relaxing Christmas this year. I’m pretty sure I cooked all day and loved every minute of it!
