Menu Planning

by superexhausted on August 31, 2015

Menu Planning:  This week is our last week of summer since the kids start next week.  So we just received teacher assignments and school supply list.  I never understood why they send the schedules and list out last minute.   I spend the last week of summer running around and miss every sale on school supplies.  My daughter is so excited to be entering the 5th grade.  My son well, high school he is a moody teenager fickle about everything.   I am not sure I am look forward towards this year or not  the teenage years can be hard..  I will remain positive and hopeful.


I have been busy working on my Etsy Store gearing up for the Halloween and Holiday season.  Be sure to check out My Superhero cape Store for all you Party costume needs.   The start at $17 and great for all thoes classmate parties.  Check out my Etsy Shop here
