November is CURRENTLY here!

Well, November just snuck right up on us... with daylight savings time and everything! Does that mean an extra hour of sleep tonight?!

I am linking up for November with Farley for her monthly Currently linky. Yay!

My son has recently become obsessed with Pokemon. I'm sure you have seen a card or 2 floating around your classroom. I guess it is better than being obsessed with a fighting game or a gun or something! I accidentally found a pokemon movie "on demand" while looking at the movies tonight and now we are stuck watching it. You think I would be able to get more done since I am blocking it out... but there is still pinterest to distract me!! lol

So proud of my 4 year old tonight! She has been learning her sounds at school and most of the time she won't practice with me (she only likes practicing with Daddy). But tonight she came over to me and wrote "ot" and "at" on a paper. She was sounding out the families, so I told her to add a p to the "ot" and a h to the "at". Then she sounded out the whole words without my help! shocked... and PROUD! My sweet girl is getting so big!

Which makes me feel better about the crazy amount of money we pay for pre-k! I know it is just one more year of $$ for childcare but it kicks our butt! $160/week is crazy! 

Needing.. some sleep! I don't feel sleep deprived during the day but at night I am! For the past couple of weeks I have been waking up in the middle of the night and then struggling to sleep through the night. I feel miserable in the night! I am about to resort to some Tylenol PM... hopefully it will do the trick! 

Do you make dinner calendars? We have been trying to make dinner calendars. We made a really great one that we pretty much followed in September, then slacked off in October (b/c I was off for 2 weeks!) but now that November has hit I feel like we should get back on track! It was so helpful in grocery shopping and for those busy weeks at school... knowing that dinner would be on the table by one of us. It is just one more thing to make though. (and one more thing to distract me from work!)

I have 2 yummy pins for you! I am going to try one this week for dinner and the other I have made a couple times and it is delicious! 

This looks super, quick, easy and yummy! I've always loved some chicken pot pie!

These are an awesome Smores dessert!

Click the pics above to get these recipes! Yum!

Also, tonight I found out about this:

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students. I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program. If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their open invitation to write an online learning review of their program. - See more at by clicking here


  1. A dinner calendar? What a smart idea! We play the "What do you want for dinner? I don't know. What is defrosted?" game every night.

    I need to try the Chicken Pot Pies and planning ahead.


  2. Dinner calendar sounds like a good idea. I hate deciding what to do each day! Hope you can grab some decent sleep soon

  3. Yay for your 4 year old! My niece is the same age so I know that's an accomplishment! Good luck on your sleep tonight!

  4. I have been working on menus. I started out making a 7 week rotation. But now I am working on designing a menu for one week at a time, it is easier to take into account everyone's changing schedules a week at a time! The Pot Pie looks delicious! Have you tried Russell Stover's S'mores? They taste like the real thing!
