Movie, Painting and Meal Plan

Friday night, hubby and I went to see Up in the Air with George Clooney (my boyfriend, sorry Sara!!) It was really a great movie, and I would recommend seeing it!!

Saturday, we went to look at a couple of re-hab properties we may be interested in buying to flip or keep as rentals. That's what we do on the side from both of our 9-5 jobs. Sometimes it's good, sometimes not...but we are still holding on tight with the market and have one under contract as of this weekend, that we flipped back in September, YAY! Then, we had a realtor appreciation party to attend Saturday night. It was a nice evening with good food, wine, beer and company.

Today, we didn't do much of anything. Hubby made me some pancakes for breakfast. He makes the best! I started to clean the bathroom....our master bath shower has those awful glass doors...and well, they were LONG overdue for a clean so I jumped in! Then, I got some leftover paint from the living room (just's actually SW Nomadic Desert) and got to painting. One coat did the trick to brighten things up and now I just have to paint the trim and doors this week! I will post pictures when it is done.

Tonight we are having roast chicken, baked potatoes and salad for's what's on the menu for the rest of the week: (and I spent $47!!...YAY!)

  • chicken alfredo with broccoli

  • tuna steaks, mashed poatoes, salad

  • baked penne with meat sauce

  • shepherds pie

  • pork chops, mashed potatoes, salad

  • Chili

  • BLTs with oven fries

Have a great week everyone!!

I really want to see that movie. The previews looked great...... Maybe I will have to drag my hubby and leave the kids at home with a sitter:)

Have a great week!

My husband wants to see this ~ happy to hear you like it.

I do a weekly menu as well as a clothing calendar ~ anything to keep me more organized! :)

Do you live in Maryland? My husband went to the USNA and I always hoped we'd get stationed in Annapolis ~ no such luck!

Hi Jo,

We do live in MD...but my heart is in South Carolina where my husband went to college in Charleston...

MD is great. We are close to the beach, mountains and have the best of both worlds.

Hope you have a great week! I may adapt the clothes schedule once we have kids, that sounds great!!
