Pocket Full of Posies

Preston just sent me information about this website for pocket meal planning. It's actually very similar to the system that I like to use (when I actually do it) except they have all the recipes in the same place so you don't have to track them down, which makes meal planning really organized. Check out their blog to learn more. They also have a giveaway going on right now if you want to get in on that action ... you get an extra entry for posting about them :) It sound like a great system especially if you're like most people and just don't always have time or want to take time to plan meals and cook every day!

The Countdown!

Let's be honest, MY countdown began almost a whole year ago ... I confess that I start getting excited for my next birthday the day after it happens! I just LOVE birthdays. The way I see it, it's my own personal holiday and I can't help but feel giddy every time another birthday rolls around. It's that first day of school feeling ... did anyone else get excited about the first day of school?? Today however, marks my one-week-to-go mark, so I feel confident that no one can find this countdown too ridiculous. I don't know where I got my love of birthdays ... maybe it's knowing that I will have a special breakfast of waffles (or french toast) with hot fruit topping (from pie filling!) and ice cream. Or maybe it's because my birthday is a day that I can reflect on my wonderful life. Or maybe it's because I hear from a lot of people that I didn't even know still remembered my birthday. And we can't forget the gifts and birthday money that I can use to spoil myself :) There are seriously so many things that I love about my birthday that I can't help but be excited! It's true that I feel awkward when everyone sings to me and is watching me listen, but there's a part of me that even loves that! So, here we come September 20th ... I'm oh so ready for you!! :D
