Happy Homemaker Monday 2.22.16

Happy Homemaker Monday 2.22.2016

Good Morning, Hope you had a great week, mine was a bit busy and a lot did not go as planned, especially my menu. I like eating out but only once in a while, mostly if I get a craving, for special occasions and maybe on very hot days but I can't help feeling guilty eating out so much in one week.

My daughter spent a couple days out of town and on her last night home requested to move up her favorite dish: Chicken Spaghetti from there it all went downhill lol my hubby knew I was down, on Friday he called me up and said momma don't cook, I'm taking you out. being during Lent We went to Senior Fish.

Sat morning I got a call from my Mother in Love she was making Pozole- YUM
A dish I had never really liked till I had hers, She is a wonderful cook! I don't think I have ever had a dish of hers I didn't like. the first time I tried her Pozole I ate three big bowls :::insert snout here:::

Sunday, our daughter was to arrive around 5a.m. but texted us it would be more like 3:00a.m. so my hubby left about 2:30a.m. turns out they did arrive early but dropped off students from another campus who just happened to have an attempted break in that morning. So the students had to wait for the all clear. My daughter did not get to her campus till 4:30 my poor hubby. We spent most of Sunday Sleeping. That night we took her out to celebrate and she wanted Pizza So 3 nights in a row, We ate out. I feel full just writing that down. On to...

Happy Homemaker Monday

The Weather... Nice 48 degrees!  high today will be in the 70's

Right now I am... Sipping my second cup of coffee.

Thinking... That I am happy this weekend is over. I was so happy my daughter placed high in the last Robotics competition enough to make it to next round and travel to Lubbock TX. but being an overprotective mom, I do not like when my babies are away from me at all! I didn't sleep much till she was back home.(God help me when they go off to college)

Reading Pile... Same as last week plus My So-Called Life as a Proverbs 31 Wife by Sara Horn
I am only reading what I can online but think I need to purchase because it is so funny.

On My T.V... I am waiting for Fuller House to start on Netflix! We did watch The Pope's Visit and Mass with all the news coverage of his arrival, Departure, etc. it seemed like we were watching a lot of TV This weekend me and My son watched Nemo, Despicable Me, and a bit of Avatar which is a long movie, the first too We Love and never tire of watching.

Favorite Blog Post...  Do the first two comments from fellow bloggers count? : )

Something Fun To Share... My daughters Robotics team is the first all girls team and they placed 4th out of 36 teams at this weekends competition! of course the girls were a bit bummed because they didn't win the tie breaker which would of meant they went on to San Antonio. They did however bring back the first trophy in 4 years! their two teachers for  Engineering & Aerospace were so happy, these two men are such great teachers and I cant thank them enough for all they are teaching my daughter.

Looking Forward To This Week... Tuesday! lol my hubby is sick  and as much as I love having him home, I tend to not do much when he is.  I don't know about you but I sort of like my routine so when one day is missed the rest of my weeks off.  I usually walk around lost asking things like What day is it again?

Looking Around House... Lets just say you can tell my mind was on getting my daughter back home.

From The Camera...

On My Prayer List... As always my family prayers, and for a friend who just lost her Brother and a new online friend's son who has taken the loss of the family cat very hard.

Bible Verse/Devotional... Saw this online and Love it...
Enlighten what's dark in me,
Strengthen what's weak in me,
Mend what's broken in me,
Bind what's bruised in me,
Heal what's sick in me,
And lastly,
Revive whatever peace and love
has died in me.


  1. Oh, how awesome about your daughter in the robotics competition! Her project looks really neat! It's something I would love for my youngest son to participate in, but so far we haven't been able to fit it in with everything else. Perhaps next year! Plans never seem to go as...planned...sometimes. LOL I'm a terrible meal planner myself. I don't even really make plans!

    1. Oops! This is Jessy from Our Side of the Mountain. I have a 2nd account for my camping and fishing blog and forgot to sign out of it to make comments for Happy Homemaker! LOL Just to avoid confusion on who this is.

    2. HI Jessy, Thanks for stopping by. How fun to have a camping and fishing blog. I miss camping. I hope your son gets the opportunity to join Robotics, my daughter really enjoys herself.

  2. Congrats to your daughter! I know what you mean about not liking the thought of college :( Thanks for stopping by!


    1. Hello Colletta, what a pretty name you have. It's tough being an overprotective parent : ) Thank you for taking the time to stop by and leaving a comment.

  3. Congratulations to your daughter and her team. What an amazing accomplishment in a predominantly male field.

    I sure hope you have a better "menu" week. I'm like you, I prefer to only eat out for special occasions and love cooking too much to not do it at home as much as possible.

    Have a WONDERFUL week with very few surprises :D

  4. Hi Tamy, Thank you for your kind words. so far so good! : )

  5. Aw, thanks for mentioning my blog! I'm kind of excited to see Fuller House as well. Hope you are having a great week!
