Friday Favorites

Time for another edition of Friday Favorites with Andrea, Erika and Narci!

Another crazy week is behind us, where does the time go???  Unfortunately,  this week brought some sickness to our house.  Rachel came down with the stomach flu Sunday night and was home Monday and Tuesday and Tuesday the mouse stayed home too, although she really didn't have anything specific.  Insert eye roll here.

Rachel sent me this pic of the sleeping mouse and Maci.  So sweet!

Here's what we've been up to this week:

Wednesday I shared how we keep our marriage strong...

I really loved going through and reading every one's posts about this!  So interesting to see what works and how others keep their marriage strong.

Last night I finished this book:

Product Details

If you are looking for a book that sucks you in, you NEED to read this one!  It's not a feel good book at all, it's about a family in England who is dealing with their daughters anorexia.  It really opened my eyes to many things.  From not only the terror that the parents are feeling thinking it is all their fault, but from the daughters, and how she looks at food as poison.  It was truly one of my absolute FAVORITE books!  

I've been killing it in the kitchen with my meal planning and prepping and it feels SO good!  Here's what we had this week:

Monday:  Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
Tuesday:  Taco Casserole
Wednesday:  Fresh Venison Sausage (which Brad and his brothers make and smoke themselves) and Fried Potatoes
Thursday: Leftovers!
Friday:  Homemade Pizza

The taco casserole was a huge hit, very flavorful!  Alayna scarfed it down too, you know it's a good one when she likes it, haha!

This weekend will be busy, Brad has been out of town for work all week and the girls and I have some last minute shopping to get done for vacation coming up.  Rachel has a volleyball tourney on Sunday, so it will be a busy one!

Our basement is coming along nicely, this week we had a guy here taping and spraying the walls.  I will be ecstatic when he's done.  Bless his heart, but I have white crap ALL over my house!  I end up scrubbing floors everyday when I get home and find this shit EVERYWHERE!!

This is pretty much what I look like everyday.  So. much. Dust.  

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Taco casserole sounds so good! I just finished a really depressing story, so I had to pick up something a bit more lighthearted to read next. Have a great weekend!

We constantly have a remodeling project going on at our house too and I feel the same way! A little project in one room messes up the entire house!! I will be glad when it's all over, someday! That book sounds really interesting!
