Happy Monday

Hope everybody had a good weekend!

I don't know what it is but I just feel so blessed today. Maybe it has something to do with the change in the weather (hooray!). Really, Jen's quote best captures my mood today: "My hands are full, but so is my heart." Ain't that the truth?

Our weekend was lovely. A quiet Friday evening (during which I fell asleep about 20 minutes into V for Vendetta) - what a sorry date I was. On Saturday hubby and I snuck away for a few hours to attend the "Valentine's in March" couple's dinner hosted by my church. It was so lovely! Great atmosphere, beautiful decorations, delicious food and lively conversation. Then on Sunday I took Oldest to a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese after church. Can I just say how much I dislike that place? It's torture. It's loud, messy, disorganized, the kids are afraid of Chuck E., the salad bar always looks picked over. What. Is. The. Point? But I digress...Even though Oldest came down with a fever last night (probably from being in that germ-infested sinkhole) we still had a nice and restful weekend.

Here's what we're lookin' like for the week:

Grilled Pork Chops and Spanish Rice. Hubby made the pork chops so knowing that Mommy doesn't have to cook tonight makes them taste that much better!

Chicken Florentine Casserole with Rice


Lasagna with Garlic Bread


See my new "Mommy's-Only-Cooking-Twice-During-The-Week-Plan?" It's been working out great. Definitely relieving some of the after work stress. I highly recommend it :-)
