Happy Homemaker Monday 5.8.2017

Linking up with Sandra at Diary of a stay at home mom for HHM

Good morning,
 I hope you had a good weekend.  We don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo but Friday was also my Sister In Laws Birthday so we always celebrate her, we had a BBQ at her home and Lets just say Ribs were involved. I may or may not have had three servings hee hee
Saturday we had a slow morning then dropped Bella off for her study group then Me Hubby & Adam went to the Mall. afterwards we headed over to Barnes & Noble Where Bella and her group met, They all looked so happy but into their work. I wish I would of taken a picture.
 Yesterday we attended our little cousins First Holy Communion. It was great to see family, My hubby has a big family, you know the kind that you have to start saying goodbyes about ten minutes before you actually leave. They are all so nice and we had a Great time.
On to HHM...

Bible Verse or Devotion...
"For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should following his steps."


  1. Sounds like you had a busy and fun weekend! That book looks interesting. I hopped over to see what a coffee cozy was, cute! Hope you have a wonderful week!

    1. They are so cute! I picked the tan one but will be getting another for my daughter and probably more for the different seasons.

  2. Only three servings? Ribs are so addictive! Here's a great video if you're interested in checking out the new Erin Condren planner - - I can't wait to get mine. Looking forward to seeing your Coffee Cozy - have a great week!

    1. lol Pamela (they were big servings. Thank you for the link. me too, going to walk to mail box in a bit.

  3. I looked it up and that sounds like a great read - adding it to my list. I love complicated dysfunctional family stories.

    We don't celebrate Cinco de Mayo either, but the air always smells so good with BBQ from the neighbors that we do grill on that weekend.

    Have a GREAT week.

    1. I'm so glad you added the book to your list Tamy! Thanks for stopping in, hope you are having a great day.

  4. Funny enough I'm not a huge fan of ribs, I mean I like them and will eat them but never order them if we're out. My husband on the other hand lovesss them.

    Never heard of the book, but looks interesting.

    Hope you have a good week :)

    1. Same here, But these ribs were falling off the bone and so easy to eat (I must of inhaled them at the rate I was going) My Sister-in-law said she boiled them before her hubby cooked on the grill. I make mine in the crock pot using burning cereals coke ribs recipe- very good. Have a good day Sandra.

    thanks so much.
    All 3 of them are adorable...
    Mr. Sweet is hanging in there...such a hard fighter, it makes me cry just to think of how hard he is working and then a set back or 2 happens and knocks him for a loop..thank you, Roe, for your kindness and thoughts and prayers for us...I'm in a deep deep hole, the rope is too short and I can't get my feet back on the ground...I am generally a strong old woman...but this time, I'm just not. I have a lot to be thankful for and I try to remember to thank our Father for them ea day..and the best is that Mr. Sweet does not have pain..please pray with me that he never does.
