Lil Mama Lil Man Recipes Weekend

Motivation Monday

Happy Monday. Hope your weekend was well.

Friday, I got a last minute call from Trina asking if I wanted to head down to the Blogalicious event being held downtown. Although it was last minute I threw on some clothes and met her down there. Glad I did. Got a wealth of information regarding how to brand and monetize a blog..Armed with this knowledge, I have decided to brand my blog. Details to come. After networking, having a mojito, and catching up with other area bloggers I headed home to get ready for early morning kick off time.

Lil Man’s first game was Saturday morning. Pleased to announce they won. Gooooo Wolfpack. It was super hot out there, I am counting down the days until cooler weather.



Mr. and Lil Mama

The Mr. coaches his own pee wee team so after the game he took Lil Man with him to his team’s game and Lil Mama and I headed to do some shopping. I needed to get my stepdaughter some school clothes and Lil Man some jeans. Last week he may or may not have gone to school “flooding”. Can’t have that. Was happy that Old Navy was having a sale for $10 kids jeans. I love their jeans because they wash well and last pretty long. I bought a ton of jeans and a few other things and headed to Goodwill. I have taken up thrifting lately and boy some of the finds I have found….I’ll do a post later in the week with some of my finds. After a long day of shopping we headed home.

Sunday was chill day. I slept in. The Mr. took the morning shift. Then I woke up and took over so he could nap. Restful day.

This week I have a few goals that I need to accomplish.

Miles: This week in training for the half marathon, I need to run a total of 14 mi.

Meals: I get texts daily from Martha Stewart Living with daily meal ideas. One day last week one for Pineapple Stuffed Jerk Chicken came through. I am going to try this one day this week. OMG, sounds so good. If it turns out well, I’ll blog about it. You know your girl is kitchen challenged!

Piano: I have been slacking on practicing with Lil Man like I should. He needs to practice every day this week…*sigh*

Welp, there you have it. How was your weekend? What must you accomplish this week? Get motivated…Go, Go, Go, Goooooooo!

    Sharing duties is nice I am glad you have that 100% husband who helps out. These football games are tiring but fun. I need to run to old navy myself and get me some clothes. Glad you had a great weekend.

    Okay, so now you got me thinking I need to go ahead and step my blog up……lol So much to do so little time.
    I love the football pic, can’t wait til I am cheering my son on in whatever sport he chooses. 🙂
    I know about kitchen challenge, growing up in the south you think I would have taken better notes while mama’nem was cooking. I get down some, but not like they do. Good luck with the recipe.

    The steals/bargains that I get away with at thrift stores should really be a crime. All of The Gap, Old Navy and Polo clothing seems to just thrown themselves at me.

    Anywho, I love Old Navy as well. Although I don’t have a problem with the jeans shrinking, the shirts seem to, but I’ve learned to let them air dry.

    The blogger event sounds like a lot of fun. I always read about these events, to bad they never come close enough to my neck of the woods! 🙁
