I know it is a month away but I decided that heck, we kinda forget about good ole' Groundhog Phil! I mean stores have conversation hearts and roses and pink,pink,pink..but where is the aisle for good ole' Phil. That is right..there isn't one..
So Phil, this one is for you! An 8 x 10 FREE subway art print so homes across the nation can give you some props! Maybe even a fist bump or two..(yeah, I went there!)
Yay! I am sorta on time this week! In the spirit of the New Year and new budget resolutions(stick, baby, stick!), I had my weekly menu plan all made out and was going to go to the store on Friday morning until my whole family except the baby got THE PLAGUE! I do not wish this stomach virus on anyone and I feel truly blessed it seems to have skipped our little DD!
So after a few days of plain baked potatoes, sprite and soda crackers we have returned to real food and I made the trip to the grocery store..here is what is on the agenda!
Quick Baked Potato Soup from Kraft( I have made this with fat free milk and regular broth and it still turns out fine!)
I can thank Pinterest for my lovely new wardrobe addition. It is so cheap too, depending on the shirt you use. For the one in my picture I used one of hubby's old gray shirts. I could be real and sow a full body photo, and believe me I took a few, but working full time and being up nights with a 4.5 month old and chasing a 4 year old, well the bags under my eyes aren't pretty, heck they kind of match the color of this scarf now that I think of it..heh..
For the one in this tutorial, I bought the shirt with a 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby so it cost me about $2.00 and .59 cents for the felt I used to cover the knot. I love the fabric, it has a fake filigreeing, leather like pattern.. The larger your shirt, the larger and chunkier your scarf will be. I bought an XL.
So I could pretend that my house is spotless, I am dressed with hair done, painted toes and nicely done make up with a sleeping baby and a 4 year old nicely playing in his room or I could be real! Reality is I am in a sweater with yoga pants, my feet are bare and my hair and make up..well..lets consider you fortunate I brushed my teeth today..while I type this post one handed while DD fusses in my lap...but I can dream!
Now for the food..I am SO not cooking Christmas dinner..that is the perk of mom and dad living 2 exits away!

So..I haven't been posting for a while and I apologize! Going back to work after maternity leave has well, sucked me in....I have been crafting up a storm with hubbys help...in the next few weeks I will show you how we did the following crafts that I found on my new love..Pinterest

This weekend I am also making someone from Church Dinner, I think I am going to get a Roasted Chicken from Sam's and make good sides. I am also looking forward to making these Chicken Pillows, maybe next week.
It may be fall, even though its still 98 degrees! Soon I will breakout the pumpkin and cider, soon!
