Happy Homemaker Monday

Pin It
From: Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

(first time doing this.. just thought I would join in.)
My friend Mary over at The Englar Fam does this

 The weather in my neck of the woods:
Things that make me happy: 
My hubby coming back to Christ.
My daughter's laugh
a break in the weather!  So tired of the 100's
My friends and family!

Book(s) I'm reading:
The Power of a Praying Wife
my Mom's Devotional Bible

What I'm enjoying on TV:
How sad that I can't think of anything.
Watching way too many kid shows right now!!!

On the menu for dinner:
Grilled chicken, mac n cheese, mixed fruit and a salad.  Thankful that Mad likes salads!!

New Recipe I tried or want to try soon:
A cheese dip my friend made last week.  So easy and was good.  Instead of the Velveeta and Rotel she did cream cheese and rotel.  It was yummy!

On my To Do List: 
Clean the guest bathroom, mop the floor, dust, clean up my crafting area and Mad's crafting area..

In the Craft Basket:
Bible cover

Looking forward to this week:
Getting together with some friends for Friday Game Night.
(I just joined them last week.  It was a blast!)

Tips and Tricks:
Give your kids a bag of beads and a string, they will be quiet for at least 30 min!!  On second thought, not sure if the quiet is worth the beads all over!

My favorite blog post this week (Mine or other):
Hmmm... there are just way too many good ones out there 

No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):
 My husband and an old friend remembering some great times they had with another friend that recently passed away. (Randy always wore a do-rag so they wore one that night)
Long story about the tight rolls!!

Lesson learned the past few days:
Just keep praying and..
no matter how hard it is you have to discuss stuff.  It might come to a blow out but at least you can get it settled and worked out.

On My Prayer List:
My pastor 
My mom is still healing from a total knee replacement,
my aunt having shoulder surgery today,
many others,
our family, 
and a BIG PRAISE for Jesus bringing my husband up front 
at church yesterday!!  Thank you Jesus!  You are awesome and have an awesome Father!!

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"  2 Corinthians 5:17

Hurray for Happy Homemaker Monday! So fun. :) Your dinner sounds so good. Can I come over? Ha kidding. I love that book, The Power of a Praying Wife. I haven't finished it but I like it so far.

Welcome to Happy Homemaker Monday!

P.S. I hope your other blog gets fixed. That is so weird

Thanks Mary! I kept reading yours and just thought it would be a great way to start out the week!
and Yes! If it was possible you would be more than welcome to come over and bring the weather!!
(oh and I am cheating... we had that last night so it is left overs!) =)

Yeah I hope it gets fixed too!!

BLESS THE LORD on your Husband coming back to Christ! What a great thing that is for you. I really enjoyed your post. Have a great week! I'll be praying for continued growth in your husband.

Nicole said...

Thank you so much Jen!! This is so exciting for me and I am so proud of him!! God is amazing and if you give it over to Him things always seem to fall into place!

Love this! I just joined in too for the first time!

Love that pic of your hubby. I love to see my hubby crack up laughing. And what a sweet shot at a tender time.

Have a great week!

Nicole said...

Thanks so much for the link back here!

I have been wanting to do this for a bit but you know it's been hectic the past few weeks...

Yes, hubby had a great time with an old friend. Mike had been there through most of the 20 years with both my husband and Randy
