Off to a Super Week

Happy Monday friends! Wow, the weekend went by way to fast, like always.  Actually the whole week seemed to go by quickly!  Between work, getting back to my training, celebrating the Hubs birthday, making Valentine’s cards, creating & eating yummy food, and working on getting my house back in order, I managed to still make time for some sleep and a mini road trip!

I am linking up with HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin today for their Weekly Wrap!

A few new recipes.  You can get the BLT recipe here, and I am still tweaking the pancake recipe!


I worked on some Valentine’s cards with my nanny kiddos and some for my family & friends.

Ever since the beginning of December I have felt like a slacker of a house keeper.  Life has been uber busy with weddings, traveling for vacation (Costa Rica!!), the holidays, being sick and putting forth a great deal of effort to get better sleep, the house work has lacked.  It drives me crazy though because I am a bit of a neat freak and like to have everything organized.  Thankfully last week a friend posted she was taking place in a challenge for 30 bags in 30 days.  Basically a challenge to declutter and organize places in your home that have been neglected.  I am slightly embarrassed to admit how many places in my house need reorganizing.  Most evenings last week I spent 15-30 min working on some spots and it has been a huge help.  I missed a few days with our trip but I plan to get back on track! Here are a few of my spots from last week.  I hope this inspires me to really finish the neglected areas and to FINALLY finish my office!!


The Hubs had a great birthday celebration!  We did a mini celebration at home with a lovely dinner and some new Spurs gear.  Then we headed to San Antonio on Friday night and spent the weekend with his family and we went to the Spurs game! It was a blast!  They were playing the Lakers, and it was Kobe’s last time to play in SA.  They had a really nice tribute to him before the game began.  The game was a nail biter down to the last few seconds of the game, but I am happy to report the Spurs came out with a win!!  The Hubs had a great birthday!

We enjoyed spending time together during the Superbowl.  We played some Monopoly (one of the Hubs other birthday gifts), and enjoyed some yummy snacks. I think I almost ate the whole veggie tray!  The guac was a hit and we both devoured it!

I hope you had a delightful weekend!  Did your team of choice win the Superbowl?
How about those commercials (the one time of year I actually watch them)?
Have you ever participated in a cleaning challenge?

Be filled with Joy and Health!

    I desperately need to participate in a housecleaning challenge. I bet I have more than 30 places along. No telling how many bags that would be. We had a great super bowl night. I confess I did not watch all of it. I retreated to my room for some me time. Lol. But I was rooting for the Broncos I’m a Manning girl!! Thanks Esther for joining us for the weekly Wrap. Have a great week!!

    Wow, your place looks great after the cleaning challenge. Going on vacation always puts me in tidying mode since we have a housesitter come to stay with our little dog. Love your Valentine creations, they are really cute.

    What cute Valentine cards! I’m afraid I could fill more than 30 bags in 30 days around here. I do like the idea of that challenge though. I remember those monopoly games lasting forever when I was a kid! Your trip to San Antonio sounds like so much fun. I hope your husband enjoyed his birthday. Thanks for linking with us Esther.
