Happy Homemaker Monday 02.08.16

Good Morning!! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I enjoyed watching the Super Bowl, especially liked the half-time show with Coldplay and Bruno Mars!!  I also thought that Lady Gaga did a fantastic job singing the national anthem.  I have to admit I started out cheering for the Panthers (only because I like the color of their uniforms, lol), but I do like to watch Payton Manning play, just not a Broncos fan.  But in the end, I was glad he won…with the Broncos.  When it comes to the Super Bowl that the Bears are NOT in, I’m like Switzerland, and remain neutral, either team can win as far as I’m concerned. 😀

Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.

The forecast shows some snow this week, I know it won’t be much, but I’ll take it!! And we’re supposed to call this winter?!?! pfffft.


We went to see Kung Fu Panda 3 on my son’s birthday. I really enjoyed it and liked that it had a good message. It was about finding what makes you who you are. I’ve liked all of them, and Shifu (voice of Dustin Hoffman) and Po (voice of Jack Black) are my favorites. What’s not to like about a huge, adorable, lovable panda who does Kung Fu!!

This is totally me!!

Your welcome, my introverted friends!! 🙂

Food Network’s Kid’s Baking Championship. My youngest son and I watch this together. Some of the recipes that these kids come up with are very impressive. I do hate to see one of them go home each week, but they have such great attitudes.

Castle also returns this week!!

Yummy addition to banana bread!! It’s kinda healthy right…there’s bananas in it. 🙂

Not so much me, but the boys and I.  I remembered seeing this before, but was reminded of it from my friend Joanna @Where the roses never fade. Ice Marbles. You fill balloons with water and food coloring and set them outside to freeze. It looks like it will be cold enough this week, so we’ll see how they turn out.


Too adorable, worth watching to the end, he gets cuter and cuter!!

Recently I started storing my leftovers in a different way. I usually put them in one large container. But now I store them in individual freezer bags, with enough for maybe 2 servings. I find that it is quicker to thaw out that way. It takes a little longer when putting it away, but here’s my tip. I put the freezer bag in a large plastic cup or container, with a wide opening, and fold the top of the bag over the edges. This makes it easy to spoon in the food.

  1. I agree with all your thoughts on the Super Bowl too – and felt the same way! I was happy to see Payton win – especially if it’s probably his last season.

    I want to see the Kung Fu movie – Annie and I haven’t gotten there yet. 🙂

    I have seen that bread before and it looks so good! The marbles sound like fun – hope they turn out!!

    Adorable video!! And I love your quote. So true. 😉

    Blessings on your week Sweetie. xoxo

  2. Ha! That chuckle describes my boys perfectly. Drives me insane though. I guess I’m not quite that introverted. Can’t wait to hear how your ice marbles turn out! Hope you have a fantastic week!
