Happy Homemaker Monday

Hello everyone, hope your Monday morning is going well so far.
I have a very busy week ahead of me and am hoping that I continue to feel well.

Wishing you all a fantastic week of work, school and play :)

The weather.....
It's been beautiful, but then again I think it's because we're not in the middle of the scorching summer yet.

Right now I am....
Enjoying a very hot cup of coffee while finishing up my menu plan and grocery list.

Having my husband home, spending some time together while kids are testing :)

Looking around the house....
Clean kitchen, clean living room, clean house.  I'm kind of shocked at the moment hahahaha
Usually Mondays mean I'll wake up to a crazy upside down house with visible mementos from the weekend.  Thankfully it's not the case today.  
Everyone is still sleeping, it's very quiet right now. 

From the camera....


On my prayer list.....
Brother and sister in law as they prepare for a BIG move.  So two years ago they took a chance on the green card lottery and last year they found out they won.  Since then they have gone through vasts amount of money, tons of appointments, medical exams, interviews etc.  On Tuesday last week they received their Immigrant Visa and have to be in the States by October.  SO exciting :)

Bible verse, Devotional....
But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
—1 Corinthians 15:20

  11. Congrats to your family members! Immigrating is a tough and costly process. My stepmom and stepsisters just finished their citizenship process; it took a little over five grand. Also like the new meal plan. Wish I was that disciplined.
