i have been in need of some inspiration to get out in the morning and run- instead... i have been making excuses about the weather and not feeling well- so i looked around to find some inspiration to get out of the bed- so i found something...
"someone busier than you is running right now"
i thought about it a while-- is there anyone busier than me???? no way! (haha)
so long story short- i got up, i ran with gracie (first time with her) and made it home and got ready for the day before the kids even got up! impressive huh?
-- now about my cooking--
last week we only ate out once (saturday was so busy and hectic with the parade, snow, and naptimes... that chris picked up pal's mmmmmmm... mmmm... it was great!)
so- no eating out for breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- including our pal's-- i made 20 meals for my family! whooohooo! pretty exciting for me! i have always loved cooking, but having the confidence to get in the kitchen and do it- so with the help of melanie and some taste testers i am doing it! i made my menu for the week yesterday- went to the store for my stuff and last night i made beef stew and corn bread (jimmy style) and tonight for the first time i made chicken and dumplings- they were wonderful! chris ate more than he should have... and i invited some of our neighbors (jess, jason, molly, and payton) for dinner and they all enjoyed it as well. it was a great time to be with our friends and even better that my chicken and dumplings were a huge hit!
