Happy Homemaker Monday

Found this blog parade today.  Looked like fun.  So, here it is...


The weather in my neck of the woods:
41°F | °C
Current: Showers
Wind: S at 13 mph
Humidity: 87%
49°F | 41°F
53°F | 41°F
Partly Cloudy
66°F | 44°F
51°F | 38°F

Things that make me happy:
Everything family!  Quiet.  Finishing things.  Little experiences, so small that I might be tempted to overlook, that make me sit up and realize that God is aware of me and what's going on in my life.

Book I'm reading:
Organize Now by Jennifer Ford Berry

On the menu for dinner:
Beef Taco Skillet and cornbread

On my To Do List:
Take L's photo and post on facebook
Clean out the fridge
Create grocery list/find coupons

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
Thai Noodles with Veggies and Peanut Sauce

In the craft basket:
Not much of a "craft," but I LOVE this and want to do it to my house (scroll down to the "after" picture of the stairs).

Looking forward to this week:
Getting things in order.
Watching my daughter run in her first official high school track meet.

Tips and Tricks:
To keep an active little boy busy, let him help you refill Easter eggs with marshmallows, raisins, etc. and some with little slips of paper in them with things for him to do "pick up one toy," "clap your hands three times," and take turns hiding them for each other.

My favorite blog post this week:
This is my favorite so far.

Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
Clothed Much.  I love this woman's style.  Wish I could dress like she does and look like she does.  I just admire people who can look at things and put them together in such a great way.

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):

Lesson learned the past few days:
To deal with my children one-on-one and quietly when they're misbehaving, so I don't embarrass them.  It may take a little longer, but the effects are longer lasting.

On my mind:
New responsibilities I've taken on and how they're going to change my life.
The statistics class I'm falling behind in.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Read Mormon 1 last night.  I was impressed with how it was clear from such a young age that Mormon would be a prophet.  How God prepares us for what we are to do in this life.  Makes me look at my children differently.
Also General Conference.  It was WONDERFUL!!!
