>Blessings & a GIVE-AWAY!

>Before I get to the weekly menu board give-away, I needed to share some blessings God gave me today!


Wednesdays are my day to leave “early” from school. I am usually at school about 12 hours a day (Leave my house at 6:45, come home at 7:15). On Wednesdays, I have to get home by around 5:00 so I can be with Buckley (my husband has class later on these nights). SO, I forced myself to leave my classroom, I got home to beef stew in the crock pot

I got changed into my favorite comfy sweats, and because I was feeling so “fall-ish”, I made a pumpkin pie!
Then I made my Ballard Design Knock-off pinecone wreath

If that wasn’t enough…I got a NEW CAMERA this weekend! I went to test it out on the amazing tree outside my house…
When I saw THIS!

And then I realized it went ALL the way across…

And THEN, when I was already amazed…I realized there was a faint double rainbow!

Can you see it?!

I just had to share my wonderful fall evening. Oh yeah…and I also took in a little boy’s sweater vest (from the thrift store) for Buckley! Let me explain – I am NOT that person! I never thought I would dress my dog in a sweater! BUT, he is shaking all of the time! And he has basically no body fat, and he has almost no fur on his belly! Poor dog…but he honestly loves his sweater!

OK…now I thought I would show all of you how absolutely AMAZING you are! I will be giving away a whiteboard weekly meal planner…

Made by me!

I had so many wonderful comments on the one I made for myself (which I use EVERYDAY!), so I thought I would make one for one of you! It’s black, gray, and white, and I feel that it could match with a LOT. The insert in the frame says it’s 7×9 1/4 inches, so the whole thing is close to an 8×10.

So…how do you win?

1. You have to be a follower of my blog. Leave me a comment telling me that you are!

2. Tell other people about my blog or my give-away! Leave me another comment with the link to your post.

The give-away end on Friday, October 15th. The winner will be announced by Saturday the 16th.

Good luck! You’re all the BEST and I’m so thankful for you!

  3. >I love this! First of all, your beef stew looks awesome! I've been dying to make all of my "fall crock pot hearty dinners" but I got a letter in the mailthe other day from Kohls saying my crock pot was being recalled!! LOL Second of all, my dog also has some clothes and I am also totally NOT that person!!! So I understand! But when your dog is 4 lbs, she gets cold after a bath and needs her snuggie 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway! I'm having my 1st giveaway right now, hope you'll stop by and enter!
