I am very excited for General Conference this weekend! My church has general conference twice a year, and we are able to hear the words of our prophet Thomas S. Monson, and other apostles. I can't wait. Saturday I was able to watch the Relief Society broadcast, which is a message especially for the women! It was awesome! I can't wait until this weekend! And, my husband has a four day, so it will be great!
Well, here are my dinner plans for the week! I have been sick for four days, so you can imagine what my house looks like. Yesterday was the first time I left my house since Wednesday. I am so glad I am feeling better. I hate being sick. I haven't been that sick in like 3 years. Anyway, today I am cleaning and doing laundry, and then I have to go grocery shopping. Here is my menu plan!
Monday- Italian sausage spaghetti
Tuesday - Aloha chicken kebabs, fruit salad, broccoli
Wednesday - Prosciutto & cheese paninis
Thursday - Steaks & penne pasta salad
Friday - Pizza pinwheels & salad
Saturday- Chinese night - terryaki(sp?) chicken, sesame chicken, eggrolls, fried rice, cream puffs
Sunday- Stuffed pork chops, green beans, pasta

My baby Jonathan (ok he is three, I guess he's not a baby any more) used to pronounce bananas as bawayways, I don't know why. But it was so cute. Now he says it the right way. He is getting so big!

The Star Spangled Banner
Congress proclaimed it the U.S. National Anthem in 1931.
Midi by Lesley Nelson
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov'd homes and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
I am very thankful to live in a free country and I am thankful for all those men and women who serve for us. Especially my awesome husband!!

Or maybe several of these:
The next space I need to work on is food storage. Our pantry is small, so I want to get some shelving to put on the laundry room for our food storage. Just something simple like this:I can't wait! I will post about my great finds when I get them!!

Right now I am in my living room listening to a loud cricket. Yesterday we heard it under our fridge, and now it is under our stove and we can't get rid of it. It is so loud, I feel like I am camping! Well, last week I posted my menu, and then we ended up having leftovers a lot, or having to eat out because we were in the ER. Anyway, so I am going to make some of the meals I had on the menu last week, that I didn't make!
Monday - Kielbasa tortellini Alfredo
Tuesday - Citrus Herb Chicken
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Pork chops in crock pot
Friday - Sloppy Joe's
