Menu Plan Monday-Cleaning House!

Aaahhh, 9:30 pm and I'm finally sitting down in front of my laptop(er, no my son's laptop since mine crashed & burned, LOL)to get this post up!  Today was a good day, my son was chosen as an ambassador for his school, so he made a field trip with his school's rep to visit his old grammar school and talk about why his High School is so great!  Not only did he earn 2 hours of community service for this, but I didn't have to drive 30 minutes away to pick him, no, he walked home today...yay!!  This gave me plenty of time to clean out my closet.  I've been wanting to put away all of our summer clothes, take out our winter clothes and separate any clothes that does not fit to donate! Everything was accomplished...yay me!!! Now I need to find a safe spot to put away all of the plastic bins with our summer clothes :/ Anyway, I"m just glad to have finally gotten that out of the way, now I'm hoping to get our laundry done either tomorrow or Wednesday.  The one thing that is at the top of my list for tomorrow is getting all of my daughter's recital costumes, accessories, shoes and make up ready for Sunday.  I need to try everything on her to make any last minute adjustments, double & triple check that all accessories are in her case and make sure I have enough makeup and hair spray glitter for the day!  I'm really excited even though I will be dead tired by the end of the night.  So, I also need to have an idea of what we will be eating this week, so here goes:

MONDAY: Grilled chicken with white rice
TUESDAY: Beef tacos
WEDNESDAY: Pork chops with Black Beans & Rice
THURSDAY: Garlic Shrimp
FRIDAY: Fast food (recital rehearsal at theatre which will last well past 10pm)

What's on your menu this week?  Come by I'm an Organizing Junkie to share or for some menu ideas!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

New Week~New Program

Here we go!!  I took a week off to regroup and decide what to do next.  I really have to say that having Beach Body on Demand is the BEST!!!

There are so many programs and nutrition plans to follow.  So since I recently completed Transform 20, I was thinking of doing it again, but I've been curious about 80 Day Obsession for quite some time.  I haven't attempted this program because at first, I felt it wasn't for me.  The workouts are longer than I'm used to and the timed nutrition is challenging for me, but I finally let curiosity get the best of me.  I'm going to give it a shot!

I started Sunday with my meal prep!  I was a bit overwhelmed at first, but I followed the sample nutrition plan and was able to get my shopping list and meals put together.

So for my first week, I have every meal planned out.  Not prepared, since I'd rather make my eggs for breakfast fresh each morning.  Most of my meals have been prepped!

My days are set to begin at 4:30AM with my sh…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.
