Weekly Menu/Goals and Update

Well, this past weekend was a pretty big one for Matt and I. Matt and I have been interested in purchasing a house and have been talking about it for quite some time. This past week we made an offer on a house and after a little "countering" they accepted! We will have an inspection done this week and if all goes well we should be closing at the end of February! We couldn't be more excited about finally being in our own home again!

Also, on Saturday Matt went to his last seminary class(at least for now as he says)! We moved to the KC area August 2005 for him to attend school, 3 1/2 years later he is finished! I couldn't be prouder of him! We went out and celebrated Saturday night at a restaurant in Kansas City, Yardhouse. Very, very good!

So now on w/ this week... it's cold here. I starting to get anxious for Spring, but seeing as how it is only January I'm trying to make the most of the cooler temps.

Here's what is on our menu this week:

Monday- I believe we are going out on a giftcard that we received at Christmas.. unless the weather gets bad.

Tuesday- Chicken Tortilla Soup w/ cornbread

Wednesday- Sweet and Sour Chicken, brown rice and broccoli (new recipe I'm anxious to try!)

Thursday- I don't know.. something w/ beef. Maybe burgers!

Friday/Saturday- My mom is visiting! I'm not sure what that will bring meal wise...

Goals for the week:

-daily quiet time

-house inspection completed

-begin gathering boxes for the move

-start organizing for the move- I don't want to move a bunch of "junk", so I'm hoping to clean out the clutter that doesn't need to join us at our new house!

-plan menu/cut coupons for next 2 weeks

- get house ready for mom to visit!
