Week in Review 9/26

Well, this was a busy week. Thursday we went to a Royal’s game, which was fun. They won, so that was good. It was the only baseball game I went to all season. Last season I went to a few more. Friday we went to a happy hour for two of Jeff’s coworkers. (They are getting married to each other.) They are good friends, so it was nice to be there for them. Saturday morning we left to go to my goddaughter, Ruby’s first birthday party. We spent the day with my friend Liz and her family, and then went to my brother’s house for the evening. Today we went to his church, out for lunch, and back home.

The menu-following was so terrible this week, I don’t even want to tell you how bad it was! Let’s just say that we followed the menu Sunday and Monday. I don’t even remember what we had on Tuesday, and the rest of the week was terrible. I need to really buckle down these next few days if I don’t want to have a huge gain at weight watchers.

This week is super-busy, too, but I’m going to work hard to make it go more smoothly!

ETA- Our October challenge is to have five servings of fruits and veggies every day!

Week in Review 9/19

All-in-all this has been a pretty good week, but today has been extra-good.

The menu plan pretty much went to heck this week. We did have the bbq beef sandwiches last Sunday, and pierogies on Monday, but no chicken. Tuesday we had grilled cheese and tomato soup. Wednesday we had Church’s chicken, so that was our eat out night. Thursday we had leftover chicken salad from a special lunch at school. Friday we had rotisserie chicken from the grocery store up the street. Tonight we are having the stuffed shells. Here’s a peek at those, pre-baking.

But, today was great. Every year for Christmas, the school board gives us gift cards to Target. I also get gift cards from parents around Christmas or the end of the year. I had $50 to Target, $50 visa gift card, and $40 cash from Christmas. I have been eying a set of red kitchenaid pots and pans forever, at least since we bought the house, maybe even since we got married. Well, I decided this year I would keep my gift cards until my pots and pans were on sale, since my old set was really starting to look icky, and it was nearly impossible to keep stuff from sticking. Well, they were FINALLY on sale this week! I bought the pots and pans, a spoonula, and silicone-tipped tongs and only had to spend $2.64 of my own hard-earned money. I saved over $35, so I am pretty proud of myself. I’m not quite the couponista that Christina and Kay are, but I loooove saving money!

I also used a gift card at Home Depot and got three really pretty mums with a buy two get one free coupon, so there is even $2.65 left on that gift card. Here’s a few shots of those through the rainy door.
