Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Menu Plan Monday - January 18th
This is my third week of Menu Plan Monday, and again I just love it. If you haven't yet, you should totally try it out. Head on over to I'm An Organizing Junkie and see what all the planners are up to! You can seriously get some wonderful ideas! Last week, I made two lemon chicken (loved it), chicken garlic lettuce wraps (amazing!), and a white chicken chili (so easy my son could have made it!). One of the cool things is that I was able to take that one chicken and make three dinners for my husband, son and myself and two lunches for me (left over garlic chicken lettuce wraps), and lunch for my hubs and myself on Sunday (left over white chicken chili). The best part was that for most of the three meals, I already had everything I needed. I spent less than $10 on what I didn't have on hand.
Now on to this week!
MONDAY Pot Roast with carrots and mashed potatoes -- This will be a nice treat for my husband to come home to. I feel bad because he has to work tomorrow. :( Poor hubs.
Beef Stroganoff (using left over pot roast) I am basing it on this recipe, but I am also adding fresh mushrooms, because my husband loves them. :)
Alexander's Pick - This is the first meal my son, Alexander will pick and prepare (with my help). He is searching out the recipes tomorrow. I will be adding a link when he gives me his inspiration.

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
