It has been a whirlwind week for me. I knew that hubby was taking me out to dinner on Wednesday night and that his gift or what he had planned would impact my plans for the rest of the weekend. I am so hard to surprise so imagine my delight when he took me to the airport Wednesday night to pick up my best friend from Atlanta, Kaycie. I shed some tears. It was an awesome surprise. Especially since we hadn’t seen each other since my wedding 3.5 years ago. Yep, that meant she hadn’t met either of my children yet either.
Needless to say, all meal plans went out the window as we tried to have some fun and soak up as much time together before the weekend slipped away. Here is what we had for meals.
Menu Plan Monday
Monday – Impromptu Italian potluck with $5 Dinner’s Family of Balsamic Mozzarella Tomato Salad, Eggplant Focaccia, and grilled chicken.
