Upward Day

Today was Upward Day at church. My older two children, Caitlin and Jacob, are involved in Upward and have really enjoyed it. You can go here for more info about this program www.upward.org I'm glad they have had the opportunity to participate this year. My mom and sister then took my three kids out for ice cream after church. They did have lunch at church as part of Upward Day. So they didn't have ice cream for lunch. :)

We enjoyed spending a bit of time with my mom and sister. My sister told me that she wanted to do something for my birthday, which is Tuesday. I turn 30! :) So we're getting together a Girl's Night Out and plan on having dinner somwhere and then bowling. I will have to remember to take my camera and post some pictures. I am very excited because I am not one to do much of anything for my birthday and it will be fun to do this. I love to bowl but just don't do it very often.

I am planning on starting a Menu Plan Monday or something of the sort by next week. I have to say that I struggle with menu planing. I tend to start perusing recipes and get overwhelmed with how many choices there are that I just end up walking away. Then you see me at 4-5pm looking in the fridge, freezer and pantry trying to figure out what to fix. Part of the reason I have started this blog is to help me be accountable. I figure the more accountable I am, the more things you get to read about and maybe I can encourage someone else who is struggling just like me. If any of you have any menu planning tips or sites that you like to use feel free to post them in the comments. I'm always up for ideas!

That's it for today! Just wanted to post a bit before I go to bed. Hope you have a wonderful night!
God bless,
Amanda

Menu planning is a really great thing to do. It will help you save money and time. As well as make sure you have healthy eating habits.
