I promised you I would show you some of my meal prep…and here it is. In our “group” we don’t do grains, beans, dairy, soda, or sugars so I couldn’t go by any of the meal plans I found on Pinterest so I went ahead and came up with my own.
Chicken thighs were on sale at Freddies this last week so I bought the family pack, and came home and baked them ALL off. After they were all cooked and the juices ran clear, I took off all the skin and started assembling them all together in containers,
I added a vegetable, this time I used the steam fresh green beans.
All packed together, lids on, and ready to go in the fridge, I made 7 meals, and left 3 without veggies, I planned on using the chicken in a salad or using a different veggie for those days.
This week we have been doing a lot to prepare our home for new siding and windows… WOOP WOOP
so I will show you my favorites
I love this porch light – I want it a little “less shiny” though. A little more of a rustic feel.
I do LOVE LOVE this but it may be a little too large of scale! but I love the lines and feel.
I am almost positive this is the light we are going to go with. Find it here.
Now lets move on to the garage door…remember we are trying to stay on a budget 🙂
while staying on a budget this is BEAUTIFUL!!…find the link here and I believe a tutorial.
I know this isn’t very exciting or pretty but it is very practical and keep all the unwanted leaves and dirt out.

House numbers … there are SOO many choices.
I love how simple these numbers are….and so beautiful. (I bet pretty reasonably priced too) find it here.
I love this too…a little more ornate-but still very beautiful. Find it here.
*last splurge before 10 week summer challenge-that starts TODAY!!*
I seriously can’t believe it’s almost been a year since Trenton turned 6…planning his 7th birthday is coming along quite nice actually but thinking about how fast a year goes by these days is just crazy. Seems just like yesterday that we were bringing him home from the hospital, as first time parents, not knowing what to expect…or even what to do for that matter. Living 2 and a half to three hours away from parents..it was all on us. I am thankful for a loving husband that provides for us, and believes in us day in and day out.
Fathers Day just came and went and what a great day of celebrating Daddy that was.
with a great race down in Albany…it was our first time there and definitely not our last!
Now it’s on to planning our first summer pool party of the year with our great friends…then 4th of July, then Grandpa’s birthday then #7 for Trenton. (not to mention repainting garage door, underside of all our eaves, window seals, and ripping out our deck to get ready for NEW windows and NEW siding *woop woop*)
This week has been busy getting everything ready for the last week of school, with Father’s Day coming up SOON I figured I would show you my favorite Father’s Day gifts and free printables.
