Menu Planning

I have never been one of those incredibly organized, my-house-is-perfect, prim and proper moms.  I want to be, I strive to be, but let's face it, it isn't going to happen.  I try to be as organized and neat as is possible with 2 kiddos and working a full time + job, but sometimes housework falls by the wayside or dinner is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  I know my kids aren't really suffering for it and they would rather blow bubbles and play peek-a-boo with me anyway than worry about cooking a 5 course meal, but something inside me wants to be that organized (if you ask the Man it's my OCD).

Advice to New Working Moms

I just found the most amazing article here.  It is a ton of excellent tips and advice for new moms just going back to work, but I think it's also a great resource for moms on their second (or third or fourth) baby who are going back to work.  I have alaways been a working mom, and didn't really have a hard time going back to work after Peanut was born, but for some reason after Squeaky was born I found it incredibly hard and hearth wrenching for me to go back to work.  I wish I had this article then.

A Fall Wreath

Forgive me in advance - I had a camera "mishap" - just prior to starting this project. So, unfortunately all I have right now are cell phone pictures, edited as best as I can get them, but I will try to get a pic of the finished wreath with the hubs' camera tonight to get up for you.

And now, on with the show....

I am about to have an abundance of peaches.  Every year my parents order peaches from a local lady who sells them for family that runs an orchard in Palisade, Colorado.  Every year my parents go on vacation around labor day. Every year the peaches they order come in while they are gone and I have to pick them up and do something with them (OK maybe I am exaggerating a little bit, but it feels like it).
