Happy Homemaker Monday

I've been wanting to join in on this Happy Homemaker Monday's for awhile. I follow a blog and ran across a couple of homemaking blogs that do a blog hop with Happy Homemaker Monday.
I don't plan on joining the blog hop, but just hope to get down my Homemaking thoughts on Monday.
I thought it would be fun, and neat to look back later on.
Here's to new traditions! :)

As I look outside my window:::
The weather outside is absolutely beautiful. It is 2:30 in the afternoon. The sun is shining, the grass is green, and it is beautiful outside. I enjoyed playing outside this morning before lunch with the boys.
Right now I am::: 
Drinking my second cup of coffee. I forgot to make coffee this morning (I'm not sure what that was all about). So I brewed me a pot with my lunch, and I'm enjoying my coffee and the peace and quiet. Both boys are napping and I am enjoying the quiet. Robert's had a hard day today and this Mama needed some quiet rest time.

Thinking and pondering:::

Babies. My cousin just had a new baby boy early Sunday morning and my sister-in-law is due any day now with a new baby. Holding that sweet baby boy yesterday made me miss my babies being tiny. I'm starting to get the baby fever...

On my bedside table:::

My planner. I try to get my to-do list together on Sundays before the week starts. It helps me to write down my goals for the week so that they are fresh on my mind. This week is going to be a busy one. We have a 1st birthday party coming up as soon as we get back from our 10-day vacation. We leave next week and I've got LOTS to do before then!

On my tv tonight:::
We have a small tv in the living room. We use it to view movies. The movie in now I believe is "Chuggington." Robert loves it. We just don't watch many movies. We usually only watch tv for family movie night.
Listening to:::
The window unit air conditioning.

On the menu for this week:::
Chicken and rice, dried pinto beans (bean burritos), dried black beans and rice, chicken and quinoa mac and cheese. We're trying to eat up what is in the fridge, pantry and freezer before our trip. I want to get out fridge deep cleaned before we leave.
On my to do list:::
Switching out all Paul's 9 month clothes for his 12 months clothes.
Birthday party invitations
Deep clean living room carpets
Deep clean fridge
Work on packing list
Finalize grocery list for our beach trip
Get tag renewal for van (My birthday will be while we are on our trip and I need it)

Happening this week:::

  MFTM tonight and Mama's birthday is Saturday.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
I just finished my very first apron! I love it. I don't plan on crafting anything this week. I need to get caught up on Project life. I'm ordering my pictures tomorrow, and will probably have to work on it after our vacation!
My simple pleasure:::
Coffee. And lots of it.

 Homemaking tips:::

One load of laundry a day. Wash, dry, fold, put away. It never fails that if I go one day without doing a complete load, I get behind. Then Mt. Everest of laundry attacks my bedroom and I get overwhelmed... leaving it to only get worse...

Looking around the house:::

I need to clean up from lunch. I had to get the boys to lay down right after lunch. Robert will only sleep if I lie down with him. So, I left our PB&J mess on the table. There are also toys scattered along the living room floor that need to be returned to their proper home.
From the camera:::

This is from our Saturday ladies breakfast a few weeks ago. I had a great breakfast with some fabulous ladies!
Bible verse, Devotional:::  
  "Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”  ESV -1 Corinthians 15:33
This verse will be my focus this week. It is Robert's memory verse for Bible class. I was so proud when he said his memory verse last week. I look forward to hearing him quote many Bible passages.

Hope you have a great week!
