OAMS June 2015 AND Menu Plan Monday

Hi friends! Life has been busy here as I suspect is true for all of you as well. I know you can relate. Since this pregnancy has begun, we have honestly been in survival mode, that is up until a few short weeks ago when I started feeling better. 

Since then, I've been working hard on getting the house back in order, catching up on laundry, reorganizing bedrooms, scheduling play dates with friends, posting a few YouTube videos and working on a OAMS (once a month shopping) trip and meal plan for June. 

I am still exhausted but this month I've got a plan and I always feel better about that! 

So, in honor of the first day of June and summer approaching and second trimester glory and Menu Plan Monday, here is a pretty comprehensive look at what we'll be eating this month. And be sure to take a peek at my OAMS grocery haul videos here and here!

Simplifying life with habits

I have to admit, I am not the most organized person. Well, see, I am in theory, but in real-life, I've got a long way to go! I know a lot of people make resolutions in January, and that's great, but this year I've laid down some habits (a month late, how appropriate!) that I want to try to incorporate into my life. 





They are:


Wake up and be productive before the kids are up.

One load of laundry per day washed, folded and put away.

Read one chapter book aloud to the kids each month.

No blogging during the day three days a week 
(Tuesday, Friday & Sunday).

Encourage a friend at least once a week.

Game or activity time with the kids right before bed regularly.

Shine my sink every night.

Friday night at home date nights weekly.

Read one book a month myself.


How 'bout you? What habits have you started that make your life so much simpler?

Menu Plan Monday: February 2 - February 8

I can't believe it's Monday already! Wow, that really snuck up on me. Thankfully last week I took the time to plan out the next two weeks of dinners. Sometimes I include lunches in my plans and sometimes I don't. Eventually I'd like to have two weeks worth of complete meals planned out (breakfast, lunch & dinner) but now is not that time. 



For now here is what's in the plan: 

Monday 2/2-- Korean Beef, Veggies & Rice

Tuesday 2/3-- Venison Enchilada Stew

Wednesday 2/4-- Lentil Stew

Thursday 2/5-- Beef Roast with Carrots, Celery & Potatoes over Rice

Friday 2/6-- Spaghetti Meatball Bake (x2) and Salad

Saturday 2/7-- Burgers, Smile Fries & Coleslaw, Wings (Saturday is Feast Night at our house!)

Sunday 2/8-- leftovers from Feast Night

What's for dinner at your house this week?
