Happy Homemaker Monday

Guess what?!?!?! It's my BIRTHDAY!

That's right....35 years old. I can't believe I'm 35 YEARS.OLD! LOL

Won't you have a drink for me today and help me celebrate?


The weather in my neck of the woods:
It's a beautiful monday morning, the sun is shining and not a cloud in sight.

One of my simple pleasures:
Waking up early and getting a cup of coffee while everyone is still asleep.

On my bedside table:
Little Heathens

On my TV:
General Hospital - I'm SO happy to be watching again, huge Jason and Sam fan *snicker
Little House on the Prairie Season 3

On the menu for tonight:
Goulash with Potato Dumplings

On my To Do List:
Clean the house
Wii Fit - LOL

New Recipe I tried last week:
Nothing at all, just old favorites

In the craft basket:
Just the same old yarn, no project in sight, maybe once the kids are back to school next week I'll finally start something.

Looking forward to:
My kids starting school today....also having a great day for my birthday.

Homemaking Tip for this week:
I actually can't think of a single one LOL

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I've done no blog reading or posting, but now with kids back to school that will change :)

Favorite photo from last week:

My husband working on my Durango


Lesson learned the past few days:
To let go and let God. Plain and simple but so hard to do.

On my Prayer List:
My children, I want them to have a great school year.
The soldiers overseas and at home
Family and friends

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

Psalm 33

1 Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright.
2 Praise the LORD with the lyre, make melody to him with the harp of ten strings!
3 Sing to him a new song, play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.
4 For the word of the LORD is upright; and all his work is done in faithfulness.
5 He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD.
6 By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and all their host by the breath of his mouth.
7 He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle; he put the deeps in storehouses.
8 Let all the earth fear the LORD, let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him!
9 For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood forth.
