Moving is fun Because…

You can DIY haha

For realz my DIY projects are to the moon and back!! So, sense we have gotten rid of Internet I am going to do my best to post from the library once a week on things like budgeting, but once a week I will be bringing you an awesome DIY from my phone!! This week?!
Revamp the shade!
First grab your gnarly lamp shade
Next grab some awesome fabric (mine are circles from a dress I made once
Cut your fabric I did half circle around the bottom of my shade
Grab your adhesive spray or packing tape if you have no idea where your spray is 😉
Tape on!
Light up the room and watch your fabric shine through!!!

Meal Plan Monday

Now that school is out and summer is in full swing (just ask my kids who are spraying each other in the backyard and refuse to take a nap!) the insanity of meal planning has shifted from Friday to Monday and shopping happens on Friday. I try to do a bigger shop on the Friday of Coreys paychecks so that I have my basics squared away for the two weeks (I never shop for more than two weeks because if it is in the house it will get eaten).

This week was the second week of Coreys paycheck so I bought my *extras*. My Menu looks like this
Monday *breakfast* Waffles with strawberries *lunch* crackers with melted cheese and lunch meat *dinner* veggie fajitas
Tuesday *b* oatmeal with protein powder *l* PBJ *d* stir fries
Wednesday *b* pancakes *l* left overs *d* small group (We are taking mozzarella and tomato salad with sweet basil from my new herb garden)
Thursday *b* oatmeal with blueberries *l* cheese crackers and meat *d* shrimp and rice with mango
Friday *b* pancakes and grocery shopping
 I use this meal planner page and I frickin love them! I love her too!

Herbs!

Our new house has a terrarium window in the kitchen so I stole some herbs from my lovely neighbor Nichole’s garden, so far my seedling basil, chives from my backyard and sweet basil from her yard are looking good but the lemon thyme may not make it. I have harvested and am drying some lemon thyme, the slow way!
