New Hair Do

So I was playing with S's hair to see if I come up with a new fun, cute hair do and I think I have something. She seems to really like it. 

I secetioned her hair in three sections. The first is just enough to make bangs, then put it in a ponytail. Then I did about a 2" section and ponied the bottom section. I then french braided the 2" section. after that I took out the bottom pony. I then removed the top pony, brushed it out started a french braid and gathered a little on the middle of the loose section to keep it secure and then just braided. S loves it. I know her face doesn't show it in the pic but she is getting tired of all the pics I have been taking.

Food challenge

This morning I woke up to the sounds of my eldest daughter getting sick and it continued most of the day. So I hurried and went to the store to make sure she had some ginger ale and saltines. After she was all taken care of I made breakfast (which was late so has thrown us off today) pancakes, strawberry topping, bacon, and coffee.Tonight I am making tacos.

Homeschool Challenge

Today S has been sick and so we did not do school work with her. I took D with me to vote (we walked) and on the way we discussed what was going to happen and why I was going to do it. He then helped me vote and turn it in. Tonight he is going to watch the news with me to see who wins.

This Weeks Meal Plan

Our days of the week this week are going to be 

Meatless Monday

Taco Tuesday

On the Go Wednesday

We go to church Wednesday nights so dinner has to be travelable or take out

Try It Thursday

a chance to try a new recipe

Fish Friday

Soupy Saturday

Savory Sunday

We go to church on Sunday so something savory that can cook while I'm gone. Our main meal will probably be at lunch time.

Well its that time again

Time to get ready to go to the grocery store. It is not fun to shop when you have so many things you avoid and are allergic to. So I am trying my best to make a meal plan this month. I will set out in the morning vote and shop (if I don't wake before the kids and go with out them and then vote).
So lets get a run down of what we have going on here.


shell fish



Things we avoid

artificial dyes

Things people wont eat

brussel sprouts
bell pepper
black olives
cooked spinach
bell peppers
lima beans

Now from what I recall that is all of it but that is still a long list and does not make it easy at all. I have had several people ask me so what do you eat? Sometimes I wonder the same thing. We use so much money on allergy free items and pre-made mixes its not funny. I know I need to start making my own or something like that so that it is not so expensive but it seems so hard to me. So I am going to go work on a list and see what I can come up with for the week and come back and share what I have.
