Menu Monday...and a few favorite finds

Hello friends - it's Monday! How did your weekend go? It seems the older I get, the faster the weekend flies by! We had lots of fall festivities this weekend - the kiddos had a blast! I didn't get too many pictures this time, but will post the few that I have soon!

This week I am trying something a little different. I am going to use a lot of what I already have here at the house, rather than go and buy groceries for the week's meals. Easy - peesy!

MONDAY: crock pot chili and homemade cornbread (didn't get to fix it last week)
TUESDAY: tacos
WEDNESDAY: grilled salmon, snap peas and red potaoes
THURSDAY: chicken burgers and beans
FRIDAY: hot dogs - our kid's favorite!

Catalog season is here...boy, is it ever! I probably receive at least 2 a day or so.

I have to admit, I shop out of catalogs, but only from my favorite ones like Lands End. If I see something I like for the kiddos, such as a certain wooden toy, I try to search the internet for the best price. Just recently, Chasing Fireflies landed in my mailbox. Have ya'll seen this catalog? It is the cutest thing - seriously! I had never seen it....a little pricey, but here are some of the things that caught my eye...

Isn't this little baking doll darling? I'm always on the look-out for dolls with red hair!

Love these t's...wouldn't it be fun if you had four children? Would make such a great picture!

"On The Tooth Fairy's Payroll"......

I think I'm in love.....(it's embroidered silk)

This is the cutest advent elf - he stands about 5 ft. tall

Yes, they even have birthday cakes!

and the menu--great idea. anytime i can avoid going to the grocery store is great! and isn't decluttering the pantry and fridge the best?!

I love catalogs. :) I've never heard of this one but it looks really cute!

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
