Tad and I are back in town after a wonderful weekend at Family Life’s Weekend to Remember marriage conference. We enjoyed our time together so much, and the conference really gave us good teaching and helped establish a lot of healthy patterns in our marriage. We were so blessed to be able to attend, and we were grateful that because Tad is a pastor, we were able to go for free! I’m hoping that sometime soon I will be able to blog about some of the teaching we received this weekend. Tad might even join in!
Last week I don’t think I made half of the meals that I planned to since I was so sick. I’m still not feeling great, but I am definitely doing better and I am thankful for medicine!
Here are my menus for this week. We definitely did better on our grocery bill this week. I saved about $8 with coupons, which may not seem like a lot, but I was excited. Hey, if I can save $8 every week for a year, I would save $416! Hoping that I will be able to continue to become a coupon mom so that I can be the best steward of our finances that I can.

I found menu planning to be a struggle today, not because I don’t like cooking or can’t think of things to make, but because I have NO appetite because of my cold! It’s hard to decide what to cook when nothing “sounds good”! I think we still did okay, anyway.
Think Tad and I are going to spend some time together before dinner and make blended frappes.
