Hello!  Total randomness listed below :)

*Our weekend begins in about one hour when Travis gets home from work! 

*The past few trips back and forth between towns we've looked like quite the circus.  We've been pulling his fishing boat behind my truck back and forth.  Not because he's been fishing.  But because we've been filling it with stuff that needs to be moved. Oh, and our stinky dog has been traveling in his kennel in the back of the boat as well.  It's pretty awesome :)

*This past week we had a free morning to take the kids to the zoo in the town where my father-in-law was being hospitalized. 
My love for animals... pretty much non-existant.  Not a huge fan.
What I do love however is seeing my sweet babes get excited about seeing the animals!
LOVE watching them experience the different sites and sounds of the zoo!

 *On our drive up to see my family we'll drive right through Joplin. 
I already feel anxious about driving through.
I can't imagine the grief that those poor people are feeling.

*Thanks to everyone who has linked up their blog below.
And if you haven't linked up yet then scroll on down and do so!

*I promise I haven't forgotten about sharing my two week meal plans.
Once we're finally settled into our house I plan on doing so!
I'm wanting to find more summery meals.
What are some of your favorites?

*And also, once we're settled in I plan on getting my sewing machine out to work
on a new project I've been wanting to make for quite awhile.
Kids library bags!
Everytime we go to the library we hunt around for a bag for each kid to take.
I thought it would be a great idea if each kid had their own personalized library bag.

*Fun fact: we have been without a television for over a year. 
And we're breaking that streak and getting a new one next week.
The reason we got rid of our tv was because it was one of those old ginormous ones.
I was afraid that if it fell out of the tv stand it would crush one of the kids.
It was THAT heavy.
We had plans on getting a new one immediately after we got rid of the other one. you can imagine we ended up needing the money for something else.
And then we began to realize that we didn't need it at all.
And then somehow a whole year slipped by without owning one :)
But now... we've been wanting to have something bigger than a computer screen
to watch movies on. 
Which is why a new tv will be bought next week.
We will no longer be amish :)


That's what has been on my mind today.
Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
I'll check back in with you again whenever I get to the internet :)
Ta ta for now!
