May Flowers!

Spring is here and summer is near. For us here in Virginia spring brought a whirlwind of yellow haze. If you live here you know exactly what I mean. The month long period where everything you own is covered in a dusting of pollen, the month long period where you feel the need to shower frequently and you keep the allergy meds handy at all times. But now May is here. April has left us, along with it the pollen is finally gone. It's a brand new month. A month full of wonderful sunshine and evening thunderstorms. The prelude to what awaits us around the corner for summer vacation.

In todays lunch I channeled spring and made these cute flowery lunches.

So cute! Both lunches are very similar. Here's what is in the lunchbox.

Ham flower swirl sandwich (The stem is made from celery), grapes, oranges, carrots, celery, ranch for dipping, and a small bag a Garden Salsa Sunchips (not shown).

Quick and Easy Lunch!

Hello Tuesday! Tuesday is so much better than Monday because we are one day closer to Friday! School is almost over and I am finding myself looking forward to Fridays and looking forward to summer vacation even more too. I love weekends and summer vacation because there is no schedule to keep and it just feels so freeing. The kids sleep in now that they are older and I can't think of anything better than getting up later and having quiet time. Plus there is that whole thing called rushing to get three kids to school on time. I so need a break from that one!

Seeing as summer vacation isn't here yet and the kids need lunch I will get on with it! Here's what is in the lunchboxes today. Both are pretty similar and both were super quick to pull together.

The first kiddo has a ham sandwich, carrots, cucumbers. grapes, clementine orange slices, Nilla Wafers, a side of ranch, and a small bag of Sunchips.

The second kiddo has a ham sandwich, carrots, sweet peppers, cucumbers, grapes, clementine slices, Nilla Wafers, and a small bag of BBQ chips.

These lunches are so easy to throw together and are perfect for adults too. Plus Yumbox lunchboxes make putting lunch together a snap too. You can get yours by clicking on the links below.

This Weeks Plans!

 Hello, It's Monday and this week I have a plan! Well I usually have a plan for the week but I thought you would all like to see how I decorate my pretty planner. Well, One of my planners. I have three!!! Yes, I said three! They all serve different purposes and get me through my days so that I don't forget to keep up with everything. This Big Happy Planner is the planner I use to keep track of my housework, blogging, and projects. This week I decorated it with a set of free printable stickers from Victoria Thatcher. She creates the cutest stickers! Be sure to pop on over and see for yourself. This is what my week looks like before the pen.

I of course filled it in last night to prepare for the week ahead. I have actually gotten ahead of the game and knocked out quite a few of my task already. Next week I will update you all on how it looks when the work week is done and it's all filled in. In the meantime head over to Victoria Thatcher and check out her free printables. Then head over to the links in the post and get your Happy Planner! Just click on the picture!
