Happy Homemaker Monday - 05/20/2013

Happy Homemaker Monday

Good Morning, hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a new week ahead.

The weather.....
We've dipped down a little from the triple digits, and it's felt really good, but this seems to be our last week like this before we're stuck on the really hot weather for the rest of the summer.

My husband turning 40 on Wednesday and us finally finding out what our future holds and which way we're headed. 

Looking around the house....
A house that shows it's Monday morning, after a weekend of everyone home having fun and being lazy.  I don't think I need to explain what that means to all you mama's out there, right???
Have cleaning and straightening up to do today :) 

From the camera....


On my prayer list.....
Friends and family going through different things right now.
For God to lead my husband and I, to help us remember that He is already there waiting wherever we're going.

Bible verse, Devotional....
