Scattered Sundays and Meal Plan
Well hello, there friends!
These next few weeks may prove a bit interesting. I’m not able to discuss the details, but let’s just say I’ll be hanging out with 11 new friends and raking in $10 a day. And yes, my lifelong dreams are coming true (not sarcasm).
Thankfully, Troy was already on vacation this week so he gets to spend some extra time with the boys. :snicker:
Being self-employed and gone for multiple days will prove…interesting. I’m going to do my best to keep my posting schedule but please do give me some grace if I’m absent for a bit.
Hey, so remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned something amazing had happened? But I didn’t tell you what it is because I’m a total blog tease? Well, guess what? I finally get to shout the news from the rooftops!
I was on a podcast this week! A food blogging podcast called Dishing With Delishes. It’s one I have followed from the very beginning and it was such an honor to be able to be on there and talk about my blogging experiences. If you want to listen, here is the link.
This week we grilled up some veggies with chicken sausage and sweet onions. I had a bag of broccoli florets that needed some love and threw them in at the last minute. We’ve never grilled broccoli before but it was delicious and I highly recommend.
How was your 4th of July? We had a great time at my in-law’s and ate entirely too much. Which as we all know is the American way. The evening ended with way too many fireworks in our neighborhood but we were all so tired that it was easy to sleep through them.
Where my adult acne sufferers at? I see you there. I found a new product last week that I’m pretty much in love with right now. It’s a drying lotion that you can put on breakouts at night and it freaking works. Just a tiny dab at night and it dries almost instantly which rules for when you’re ready to just go to bed already.
I read about it in
US Weekly um, The Economist.

What We Bought This Week
Smith Brother’s Farms – $49.31. Our delivery date is changing this week so we front-loaded some stuff to make up for the missing delivery. Also, Troy really wanted one of their 2018 limited edition shirts, so that added to the bill.
Costco: $78.85. Water and fruit snacks are for church for vacation bible school.
Fred Meyer: $35.66. I crushed some coupons and Friday freebies this week! A lot of this stuff was for the 4th.
Due to my interesting schedule for this coming week, I had to do my weekly grocery shopping early. It all evens out.
Farmer’s Market: $32. I didn’t take a pic, but it was all veg and fruit.
