Happy Homemaker Monday 6.30.2016

Happy Homemaker Monday 6.30.2016
linking up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay At home Mom

Hello Hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Mine was good, Yesterday we were late waking into church - don't you hate when that happens. But I'd rather be late a few minutes than not go at all. Sundays or any day are so Awesome when you go to church. I always feel so good afterwards and it carries me though the week. I definitely feel it when we miss mass.

Friday we attended the Harry Potter "party"  at our Local Barnes and Noble. It was fun to see fans all dressed up in Happy Potter costumes and all the hands including my daughters shoot up during trivia contests. We tried the drink especially for the HP book Release...Passion Potion. Pretty good.

 I am feeling so sluggish this morning, got 6 hrs. of sleep but even after coffee. I feel like a zombie. This momma might need a nap today.

The Weather... It's a nice 88 degrees right now, might get up to 91 I hope not!

On my reading pile... hasn't changed just got a bit further lol

On my TV... Harry Potter, Super 8, Tim Hawkins on you tube he is so funny!

On the menu for this week...

Monday -  Mostaccioli
Tuesday -  kids Drs. apt = c/p meal
Wednesday - Baked Chicken
Thursday - 8 can soup
Friday -  Homemade burgers & fries
Saturday - Enchiladas, Rice & beans
Sunday - c/p meal

On my to do list...
 Laundry...never ending.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...
I stayed up to late playing in planners with my daughter. We had planned to go to the Saturday planners class at Michaels craft store but the time flew and we decided to try and go to next months class. Are any of you planners? If you are, you know how addicting but fun it is. Doing something creative feels so good! even if its just planning out your days, playing with washi & stickers. even better if you get to do it with someone you love : )

Looking around the house...
Feeling accomplished, house tidy, My Son is reading, My daughter is still asleep, the dogs are laying by my feet : ) I can hear the hum of the fan and birds chirping outside.

From the camera...
Our home away from home

On my prayer list...
Family & Friends prayers as usual. Prayers of Thanksgiving...God is so good to us, Ask and he shall not only give...but give abundantly!

Something that inspires or brings a smile to your face...  
My new fridge! our old one died after almost 16 years. The first one we replaced it with was not in stock for a week, then it didn't fit. We had to go back and pick another then wait for it to be delivered the next day, but Thank God it all got worked out. I am so happy to be done with using a cooler.

Oh and this too. My daughter cracking me up...playing around with computer at electronics store. I told her I still think she's pretty adorable and would make a great animated character : ) for some reason the bottom right photo reminds me of the lady in that kid movie about a bird - Rio : )
Have a great week! ~ Row.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS ON THE NEW FRIDGE! I hate when I have appliance issues, especially the fridge.

    Super 8 was a pretty good movie and we really enjoyed ALL the Harry Potters.

    My cousin and I are just starting o play with planners - I LOVE how personal they are!

    Have a great week.

    1. Oh Tamy Beware, Planners - they are addicting.

  2. Must be contagious - as I was an only 6 hrs of sleep gal myself and dragging today. Lol ;)

    The Harry Potter party looks like it was lots of fun. LOved those books and the movies!

    I"m intrigued by the "planners" things you're talking about. Do you have more info (photos etc) about them? I'll need to look them up.

    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead Sweetie! xoxo

    1. Hi Carrie, Yes I will have to post some planner fun. if you'd like do a" planners" search on IG So Much cuteness!

  3. A new fridge!!!That is happy news! Good for you!
    And Barnes and Noble??? Love. : )
    Love your cozy morning, too.
    Hope you enjoyed a cozy nap today. I did. : )
    Have a happy week, my friend!

    1. Hey Billie Jo, just caught up on your blog! what an amazing time you have been having! Disney, and your anniversary Surprise at home! love.

  4. Wow, I love your post! I didn't realize B&N had partied?! How perfect. I'm so jealous of your weather!! I'm going to cruise your blog, I live it so far!

    1. Thank you so much Elizabeth. Yes B&N will continue with these parties till the end of July-book release. hope you get to attend one. Thanks for stopping by and your very kind words.

  5. Yum! That Passion Poison sounds delicious.

  6. Using a cooler does not sound like it would be fun. I had stumbled across an article earlier in the week about a family that lived without a fridge/freezer and thought nope. I don't think we could manage that! Congrats on your new fridge. Hope you are having a great week!

    1. Hi Jean! oh no fun it was not but not as bad as I imagined.
