Thing Thursday

Per the request of my sweet friend and new mom, this Thing Thursday is focused on hand sanitizer. Specifically Gold Bond Ultimate. Why? Well let me give you the back story...

My girls were born 7 weeks early, not the intended plan, and thus spent 5 1/2 weeks in the NICU, again... Not the plan, but was sort of a blessing in itself (another blog for another day). As you can guess, cleanliness was a high priority! So we were constantly putting on sanitizer, for weeks! Our hands were quickly becoming destroyed... So coming home, not only was I obsessed with anyone and everyone making sure their hands were clean, I also was searching for solution to keeping my stress level about germs down  without my hands cracking off.  Here it is! Cleans the hands but keeps them alive. 
Only a slight down, it's a little greasy... Which isn't the worst, but plays mind tricks on you as you wish for cleanliness :) 
This sanitizer is a good solution. Try it :) let me know what you think!

Lunch time!

Guess what we discovered today!

Dipping our food into barbecue sauce!


Needless to say, it was a very fun and messy lunch! Not the best day for white shorts :) so the rest of the afternoon Ash just didn't :)

Happy Wednesday!

Meal planning... So far so... Not.

So I've been contemplating how to start a meal planning calendar. This seems like a good idea so that I have less nights that I am frantically looking in the fridge thinking, "what can I make with what's in here?"

So as a first means of research I've hit the blogging world! I've learned several things...

1. Make a family binder to help you be more organized!
CHECK! (more to come on this)

2. Form a list of meals that you can or enjoy making... Preferably ones your family like.......

This is where I would like your help! I have some recipes that I enjoy, but am looking for more and a variety! Willing to join in the fun? In the comments section leave your favorite recipe :) then we can all try it and maybe it'll make the list! I will let you know as I try some how they turned out... Sounds like fun right? So now it's up to you! The more recipes the more fun for all!

... P.S. these recipes can totally be only partially home made if its a favorite! For example: on my list of favorites I have tomato soup (campbells select tomato an basil) and grilled cheese! Simple, but so good!
