Mom Blog Quiz

So as I am trying to catch up on blogs for the past week, I come across this quiz. Love to do these silly quizzes so I had to see what my results were. I really wasn't surprised as I never can seem to manage to find the time to keep this ol' blog up. Thanks for the quiz kc and tina
The mom blogger quiz from MamaBlogga
Take the Mom Blogger quiz!

Congratulations! You have a life! You have a blog, too, but you'd never let that get in the way of your real life. Good for you. How I envy you.

Faith Lift Fridays

Encourage others and yourself! Share a scripture, quote, devotional, lyrics, or anything that has blessed you and strengthened you in your faith. Don't forget to grab the button and to link back to Sheryl's post.
I cannot say that I have read anything lately that has made me think, or be inspired. In fact with things turning gray and the sun not shining as much this week, it has really had an impact on me. Not liking it. But I have been loving this song. We sang it at a women's retreat our church had and we sing it in church. It's one of those songs that I just get the urge to belt out as I am doing things around the house so I thought I would share the words with you.
(I also have it playing on my playlist)


We stand and lift up our hands

For the joy of the Lord is our strength

We bow down and worship Him now

How great, how awesome is He

And together we sing, everyone sing

Holy is the Lord God Almighty

The earth is filled with his glory

Holy is the Lord God Almighty

The earth is filled with his glory

The earth is filled with his glory

And together we sing, everyone sing

It's rising up

All around

It's the anthem of

The Lord's renown

Holy, holy is the Lord Almighty

Holy, holy

Happy Fall

From one pumpkin to another!!!!!!!

A woman was asked by a coworker, 'What is it like to be a Christian?'The coworker replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.' God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and washes all the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'This was passed on to me by another pumpkin. Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

Menu Plan Monday

Okay it's been awhile since I've posted a menu. I make one out weekly - It truly has been a lifesaver for me in this house. We were forever doomed to eat hamburger helper and pizza because I never remembered to take something out of the freezer, or I didn't have something on hand. So now I always have 7 or more meals ready to be made. I love it!

So here is what we are eating in our neck of the woods this week:

Monday: Taco salad, corn cake - this new twist is sooo good!
Tuesday : Spaghetti, meatballs, salad, cheese filled bread sticks from Schwans -yum! -Boy Scouts tonight
Wednesday: Pizza - also from Schwans, veggies and dip - Awana tonight
Thursday: Sloppy Joes, Tator Tots, corn on the cob - Middle School Football Game tonight
Friday: Chicken Pot pie, peach jello with peaches
Saturday: There are like 3 Fall family fun festivals going on. Probably hit one of those and get some grub. Otherwise BBQ Ribs on the grill
Sunday: Getting pictures taken with kids and all their cousins. Hoping to just hit a restaurant after the appointment if all goes well.

That's it for me, check out Laura's blog for more yummy ideas!
