The most amazing thing happened...

27 years ago today, my husband was born!  This is quite possible THE most amazing thing that could ever have happened b/c even though my parents hadn't even met yet, God was already orchestrating life so that one day I would meet this amazing man.

It is amazing to me to look back over the years we've been together (and even the years before) and see how amazingly God's hand was present in bringing us together.  I am so thankful that this wonderfully creative and funny man was able to look past my weaknesses and see me as his wife.

Today he turns 27 and I am looking back over the last few years we've shared and am truly astonished by all that he has accomplished.  If you know my husband, James, please take some time to send him a message and wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


***Next week, we'll return to the normal schedule of Works for Me Wednesday with a post on organization in our kid's room and how I combat the limited space.***

Wow...has it really been that long?

I can't believe how long it has been since I've posted...must get better about that.  Well, my new goal for this blog is to get at least two posts up each week:  menu plan Monday and works for me Wednesday.  Without further ado, here is my menu for this week.

Monday - Tacos (using this recipe, but serving in corn tortillas instead of over potatoes) and Spanish rice
Tuesday - Buckwheat pancakes with sausage patties
Wednesday - Chicken and Rice Wraps (I'll be tripling the recipe and freezing the extra for after baby comes); salad
Thursday - C. O. R. N./rewind (Clean Out Refrigerator Night, or I rewind and make a meal I skipped--for whatever reason--earlier in the week)
Friday - Sloppy Joes; salad
Saturday - Chicken and Ramen noodles (cook noodles, drain, add chicken, some seasoning/soy sauce, and stir fry veggies)
Sunday - Spaghetti with meat sauce; salad; garlic bread

So that's what's on the menu for this week.  Check out the other Menu Plan Monday posts linked up at and feel free to link up yourself.  I'd love to hear what you're plan is if you don't have a post to link up, please feel free to share in the comments below!

Also, coming up for the next few weeks I have some posts planned for Works for Me Wednesday on organization in a small space.  So stay tuned!
