Weekend Planning



Sigh, the weekend. Finally. School has started, which means my job is hectic. But the weekends are still all MINE...well and Carl's...and the house's. Anyway!

Friday

Molly:
-Make delicious Mediterranean Chicken- I've been craving it since the first time I made it a few weeks ago
-Menu plan for next week

Both:
Perhaps a little shopping for some candles to make a Fall arrangement

Saturday
Molly:
-Paint the door going out to the garage (yikes...me? paint?)
-Finish cleaning the last few cupboards that I haven't had time for lately!
-Grocery shop

Carl:
-Work with potential new alarm system company
-Touch up paint around the garage and sliding glass door

Both:
-Go to a few stores to price shop plants, shrubs, etc. to put in our very naked backyard
-Get some mums for our porch!
-Take some nieces and nephews bowling

Sunday
Both:
- Sleep in!
- Clean our cars (this REALLY needs to happen this weekend!) weather permitting

To get you in the Fall mood, here is a closeup of the arrangement I have on my table. I need a few more candles for my decor, including the appropriate color side pillars for this, but it definitely deserves a little spotlight.



Cost Breakdown:
Vase: Home Goods, $12.99
Leaf Filler: Hobby Lobby, 5 stems for $7.50
Berry Filler: Michaels, 2 stems for $2.00

Total Cost: $22.49
NOT BAD! :)

(I didn't include the side pillars as those are just normal centerpiece material for me)

I'm hoping to have a few more decor pics to share next week too! Have any fallish plans this weekend? Ok fine, what about just regular plans?

  2. Oh heaven's no! Haha...inquisitive children make me nervous...I think they would stump me daily. I do however work in the school system, so while I work through the summer, the school months are much busier!
