We love cold cereal at our house. It is a great option for breakfast. And for dinner sometimes. In fact, I sometimes eat a bowl at night for my snack. My kids love dry cereal as a snack.
Thanks to MyBlogSpark and General Mills, we were given the opportunity to try a few boxes of General Mills. My coupons came and I have been very anxious to use them. The first box that I bought was Cheerios. I love Cheerios and my daughter loves to eat them as a snack while Mama is cooking dinner.
I am looking forward to getting more General Mills cereals for our family to enjoy! We love all Chex and Kix!
Yesterday Andrew was told he would be promoted! This is an answer to a LONG awaited prayer, and not just by me!
He will be closer to home and the extra money won't hurt either!
He has been working an hour away for the last five months and will now be only be about 15-20 minutes away from home. He is excited about this move. He told me last night that except for the night that he closes, he should be home by 5:30. It really means a lot to him to be home to eat dinner with the family and do some family nights. Noah has been advocating Family Movie Night and Family Game Night, so now we can plan them during the week instead of the weekend.
I think that Andrew is finally getting to the point that he really wants to be more family ordinated. It is something we have fought disagreed about in the past. He hates missing out on so much of the kids lives. I think he is realizing that they are getting older and time doesn't stop for anyone.
We thank God for this! Jesus you are awesome and you are an on time God!
Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
I did NOT laugh like a hyena and immediately go to update my Facebook status when Noah asked potty training Jonah, "did you pee on me?" to which Jonah replied, "No, Not yet!"
I did NOT almost go off the road while driving with the kids and sort of served a little to which the boys replied, "Do it again Mom!"
I did NOT feel a sense of pride for packing my husband's lunch everyday last week for him to take to work. And I did NOT feel bad for getting upset with him for eating "out" a little too much in December!!
And I most certainly did NOT do anything special for Abbi's first birthday. After all she only turns one once...we did NOT have some cupcakes at my mom's on New Year's Eve and took a few pictures in her birthday girl onesie. Poor baby is stuck in the middle of Christmas and New Year's and my birthday!
And I did NOT turn 32, good Lord, 32! on this past Friday...nope NOT me!
I can not believe I actually put 10 without putting 09 first! I am going to try to post this each Monday this year. I notice that it is much easier to stick with my budget if I plan out our meals each week!
Monday- cubed pork, rice and corn
Tuesday- eat with my parents or Chicken, broccoli, and rice
Wednesday- lasagna and bread
Thursday- leftovers or Chicken, broccoli, and rice
Saturday- pizza and breadsticks and it's Family Movie Night
Our breakfast this week will be oatmeal, muffins, and cold cereal and our lunches will be sandwiches and leftovers!
I went to Publix this morning and spent $25.10! I got meat for this week and a few other things. We are set for this week other than probably some more milk, and I just realized we are almost out of toilet paper! May have to make a trip to Target today! But we will defiantly be below my $50 budget! Whoo Hoo!
