We are officially back from the beach and settling back into our normal life in Charlotte. As great as it is to escape to the beach for the week, there is something so comforting about being HOME ... a dose of reality. We returned home to three loads of laundry that needed to be run ... really what should have been about six loads, but I was jamming that washer full with every bit I had!
So now I have a mountain of clean laundry to fold and put away. Camille has ballet this morning and two days of preschool this week. I have returns to make to Homegoods and a meeting with Home Depot about potential plantation shutters in our home. I have a feeling they will be out of our price range, but may as well get a quote.
I also made our meal plan for the week and did my grocery shopping with Charlotte yesterday:
Sunday: Homemade French dips and skinny oven fries, recipe here
Monday: Crockpot pulled pork, green beans, roasted okra
Tuesday: Cube steak with mushroom gravy, stewed white beans, creamed spinach with nutmeg
Wednesday: I have dinner out with friends, Southwest chopped salad for Ian topped with leftover pulled pork from Monday
Thursday: I host supper club here and still need to come up with a fall themed menu and complete the shopping!
We don't have any weekend plans so I am hoping either Friday or Saturday we can just lay low and order a pizza.
Camille and I have just finished our bowls of cereal and I am going to put the girls in the double stroller and take them for a little morning walk. Hope your Monday is off to a great start. What was the highlight of your weekend?
