HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

WHEW! This is going to be both a short and long week. Short in the time to get things done, long in anticipation of the BIG day. My brother is getting married next weekend so there is a lot to do.  It’s a destination wedding so we have packing to do, decorations, kenneling dogs and picking up out of town relatives to start with.

Be sure to link up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy homemaker Monday and with Laura at I’m an Organizing Junkie for Menu Plan Monday.

WEATHER OUTSIDE
It has been absolutely beautiful here until the temperature shot up 18 degrees and got a bit muggy again this past weekend making it exceptionally warm! It is supposed to be nicer as the week gets older and we’re spending the weekend at the coast for the weekend which will be ABSOLUTELY beautiful!

TO DO FOR THE WEEK

  • Pack for the wedding
  • Make a folding board for the backseat – our normal set up won’t work since we have to pick up my future sister-in-law’s sister from the airport after we drop the dogs off at the kennel.
  • Physical Therapy appointment*
  • Eye Surgery F/U appointment*

*I’ll sure be happy when hubby can drive again.

I’ve been slacking a little on reading lately. I’m hoping to get some done this weekend while we are away.

Thanks Carrie. The good thing about a destination wedding is that once we get there, I can kick back and relax after I get the decorations and such set up. Chilled Barefoot Pink Moscato here I come!

Wow – sounds like quite a busy week! Prayers for safe travels and that all goes smoothly! Your menu sure looks yummy…and that caramel pecan cake you posted last week looked so amazing! You always post wonderful goodies!!

Congrats to your Bro and just try to relax and enjoy some rest time next weekend.
Have a great week! xoxo

Thank you! You remember the old VISA commercials? I think one applies here.

Decorations – check
Room Arrangements – check
Travel arrangements – check
Finally having your brother married after all this time – PRICELESS

I think after yesterday the wedding events are really starting to fall into place. I'm waiting on a couple last minute Amazon deliveries for decoration parts and the info to pick up my future SIL's sister at the airport, but barring any disasters things appear to be on schedule!

Sending you lots of energy for the week ahead and blessings to your brother on his upcoming wedding 🙂
