Weekend Recap and Menu Plan

This weekend...

...I went shopping with my mom.

...I almost passed out at the gas pump when it took $45 to fill my tank.

...I went to a bridal shower with my sisters.

...I took a nice Saturday afternoon nap.

...We had our friends over to hang out. They brought pizza, the kids had fun playing, and I gave my friend a tutorial on her new D90! (She's going to love it!)

...Grant and I finished watching the entire series of "Gilmore Girls" for the 3rd-maybe 4th-time.

...Dylan woke up with an upset stomach, but felt better by the afternoon.


...We made brunch, after sleeping in.

...We visited with my in-laws.


...We had a relaxing Sunday evening at home.

Monday: Chili and Cornbread Muffins
Tuesday: Steak, Potato & Cheese Pierogies, Broccoli
Wednesday: Sweet & Sour Chicken over Rice
Thursday: Soup & Grilled Sandwiches
