Take a look Here
Let me know what you think. The Check boxes are missing, they didn't copy over to Google Documents but you get the gist!
As for this cool website, My girlfriend Tiffanie sent me this awesome website that I totally fell in love with after browsing it for about 5 minutes. It is called eatathomecooks.com. This mom plans out a weeks worth of dinners and puts together the recipes, shopping list, side suggestions and even a dessert! Plus within each meal she has some of the recipes that are for the slow cooker, others you make two of so that you can put one in the freezer for later that week of to portion out for lunches. Also, what I like about her site is that she uses a lot of fresh, natural, healthy ingredients. I think she has about 30 weeks of menus planned. It is so easy all you do is open up the menu that you want to use, print it off and then go shopping! Talk about easy!
If you choose to use this site, let me know what you think!
I am going chopping tomorrow! So I will let you know how it goes!

I am trying, and failing I might add, at finding a way to manage everything at the same time.
Karen, my sister-in-law, gave me the idea that I should set a timer for an hour and do whatever i can in that hour. Or maybe I will do that twice a day once in the morning and once in the afternoon? So I figured I would try it starting tomorrow!
I make all these lists of things that need to get done and yet nothing seems to get done even though I am working on them? I am also known, at least when it comes to things around the house, for saying that I am going to get something done today and then by the end of the day it is only partially done or not at all. Then I get frustrated and then Jason gets frustrated and that is just not good. So any and all ideas are welcome and hopefully I can get into some kind of routine that works and will stick.

I am known for getting tall and fat trees, however this year I was able to find a tall and skinny one that I liked! Well here are a few pictures of the tree, it definitely looks better in person with the lights on at night, I will add some more pictures a little later.

So, lately I have been out of our somewhat normal routine and it is bugging me. I need to get back in the swing of things and in order to do that it is going to make for a very long day.....Usually when the boys wake up I get them ready for the day feed them breakfast put on some cartoons and then I check my email, Facebook and Pampered Chef stuff. Then I work my way to the kitchen and do dishes or I pick up the living room or start laundry etc... By this time Joel is ready for a nap, so I make him a bottle and lay him down. I then go take a shower while Bo is playing in the toy room or watching mickey mouse. Once I am ready, it is lunch time so I make Bo and myself lunch and then he goes down for a nap around 1 or 2. The rest of the afternoon I check email stuff again, work on another chore or do something crafty. Then of course I have the days where I have a bunch of running around to do or a play date for the boys to go to etc... Then comes getting ready for dinner and once dinner is done and we eat, we either go for a walk, watch TV and relax, or we are hanging out with people. That is our typical week. Now of course I have Pampered chef shows, Jason does Boy scouts and we have the occasional date night. But this past week has been so out of whack that it is hard to get back into the swing of things and that is my frustration right now. I don't even now how it got out of whack in the first place? GRRR. Plus now I am having to start getting ready for our trip up to Minneapolis! I can't wait! But for now that means more laundry, cleaning and packing. Anyways, I am going to revamp my blog to not only share craft ideas and family photos, but also how I am feeling, recipes and meal plans, ideas, wishes, Pampered Chef specials, random trivia, photos and the sort! So I hope you enjoy the changes that are going to take place. For now here are a couple photos of the FAM!!!

Create a pouch out of a regular envelope.
- A2 size Envelope
- Paper Trimmer
- Stamps>>(Gina K. stamp set A Year of Flowers used here)
- Cardstock (for insert)
Seal the envelope.
Use your paper trimmer to cut 1 1/4" from one of the short sides of the envelope.
The narrow piece will be the topper and the larger piece will be the crimped pocket portion of the card.
Decorate both pieces with stamps, keeping in mind that the bottom piece will be crimped and the images may be slightly distorted.
Place the larger piece into the crimping tool with the opening to the side, and crimp.
Add stamped/cut images, die cuts and embellishments as desired.
To create the insert, cut a piece of card stock to 4" by 4 1/4".
For a layered look, cut additional pieces slightly smaller.
Stamp and embellish insert as desired.
As a variation you can scale the project down to create gift card holder.
