Happy Homemaker Monday #14

Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I know we did! 

It's Monday again, so that means I'm joining up with {Sandra} today for another edition of Happy Homemaker! 

The Weather:::
right now it's 34 degrees F and I am NOT complaining. There's frost on the ground and it's gorgeous outside. The sun is twinkling through the leaves reflecting off the ground


I really need to find my gel nail polish because I'm tired of the  chipping :(

What I'm Reading:::
We started reading a chapter or two a night from the Bible with our big girl for her bedtime reading. This week is Exodus 14-20 

What I'm Creating:::
I'm so close to finishing my quilt I can taste it
I bought some red and green at Walmart yesterday so I can start crocheting some stockings as gifts this year :)

Something Fun to Share:::
well I don't know if this is something FUN I can share but I unkow-ingly decided to lock my keys in my garage last night and can't take big girl to school today...
another reason we should homeschool.. bwa ha ha

Homemaking Tips:::
before you go to bed every night make sure you know where your purse and your keys are {just in case your husband leaves for work with the only set of keys}

From the Camera:::

I think this swing is quickly becoming a part of our family
my baby seester home from college for the holiday!

Looking around the house:::
we need to decorate the tree and finish decorating the house for the most amazing holiday of the year!

On my prayer list:::
Our church {through Samaritan's Purse} is collecting children's tithe to purchase a goat for a foreign family in need
Our big girl is so excited and came home immediately to see how much change she had to give

Bible verse, Devotional::
“Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.” 
Hebrews 12:28 NLT


  1. Darn, hate it when we can't take the car to school! Been there. Thanks for stopping by my blog today, Whitney. Have you ever shared your perfect chicken recipe?

    1. I tried to email you, but I couldn't find your address anywhere. I hope you get this reply...

      I HAVE shared my recipe.. You can find it here

      Hope you like it as much as we do :)

  2. Oh my, I have been in that position before. Me and hubby both have keys to each others vehicles but one time when we were driving I left my keys in my locked car and didn't realize it. After all my husband had keys to let us in and I thought mine were in my purse. The next day when it was time for school (and my husband was at work) we couldn't get into the car nor could I get back into our apartment. Luckily we had maintenance who could let us back in our apartment or we would have really been out of luck. LOL

  3. oh my ... me too - watch A Baby Story when I get baby fever - haven't felt the need to watch since Miriam was born - probably a good thing since I'm turning 42 this week!!!!

    Have a good week!

  4. I SO understand the never-ending laundry! It's become a fact of life these days...especially with our cloth diapering!

  5. See, just another reason I love homeschooling my kids LOL

    I haven't had patty melts in forever, that sounds so good :)
