This week's themes: Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Writing, Scheduling.
Completing. Hubs smoked a pork loin on Friday night, and OMG was it amazing. He had to work late, so I did all the prep work by myself, including starting his fire! Good thing I pay attention to him when he grills so I know what he is doing. I cut the pork loin open as best as I could to lay it out flat, then I sauteed some onions, garlic and fresh spinach. I seasoned the inside of the meat and spread out the sauteed veggies across the whole thing and sprinkled with a little mozzarella cheese. I then carefully rolled it all back up, wrapped it in some bacon and tied it up with baker's twine to hold it together. It sure made a delicious meal, and there is plenty left over to eat off of this week! I am so glad that Jason is enjoying his iGrill Mini that I got for him for Christmas...I love that it graphs his temperatures as he is grilling. I definitely recommend it to any other pit masters out there!
Visiting. We got to spend a little bit of time with Nana this week during a surprise visit! We always love our visits from her no matter the time of day or length of stay. Ever since her and Pop-Pop moved about an hour away, we really value the time that we get to spend together.
Repeating. Another week of homeschooling under our belts. Let me tell you...these kids can be SO incredibly difficult some days and just perfect angels other days. I guess good vs. bad days all even the experience out in the end I suppose. Mackenzie decided to have to "school time" with Ruthie as well! Love those girls ;)
Writing. I posted my first blog entry of the 2016 earlier this week. If you haven't checked that out, you can find it HERE! I finished up some skinny jeans that were in testing from Winter Wear Designs...the SK8 Skinnies. Caleb absolutely loves them, and they are just adorable on him.
Scheduling. I pulled out my planner and calendars this week and got them all updated for events we have over the next few months. I have a Plum Paper Planner for my everyday, a wall calendar in my sewing room to write my blog tours and testing deadlines on, as well as a magnetic one on the fridge for Daddy to check and have a daily reminder out where everyone can see it. There is just something so satisfying about actually writing your plans down on paper and not having to solely rely on your brain to remind you. Am I the only one? I kind of made a New Year's Resolution to be more intentional in all aspects of my life, and writing things down and even making lists (for me) really help me to view priorities and get ahead of the game.
Thank you for stopping by and listening to my ramblings of the last week! Don't forget to check out the other bloggers that are participating this week and stay tuned for some fun things happening this coming week.
