brownThis week’s Listicles: 10 THINGS I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO


Halloween and Dino dressing up. Now that I am back to full time he’s at daycare full time and gets to enjoy Halloween at daycare. What will Dino be? Can you guess? Sorry, you’ll have to wait till Halloween to find out.

Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings…turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes.

Cooler Weather, pumpkin picking, apple picking, pumpkin lattes, and apple crisp.

My Birthday…I will be 38 in late October and I am looking forward to it. Life can only get better from here on out. Hubby will be 39, but he’s not too happy about it.

Having my groceries delivered by Peapod…being back full time at work leaves me no time during the week to shop and I don’t want to spend my precious weekend shopping. This Saturday was the first day we started with the deliveries. I figure every two weeks should leave us with enough food for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks. Hubby is going to take care of the cold cuts each week and his own unhealthy snacks.  I know I will need to replenish fruits and maybe almond milk. I will see what we run out of and need before the next delivery. I have tons of meals planned and look forward to sharing them, good or bad. 


Weekends off from work

Day trips on the weekend with my family

Enjoying the great outdoors

Sleep I try not to comment on my hubby’s list…but notice I didn’t put sleep. Why? Because I am the one who gets up to take care of Dino and can hear him cry and call us. Hubby can sleep through it all…I would like more sleep, but know I will never get it.

  1. Ditto on the sleep… Um, but, grocery DELIVERY? So jealous. My friend in Brooklyn looked at me like I was nuts going to the store – they charge her $5 per trip. I spend that much in gas… And I just turned 39 last week, it’s really not so bad 🙂

  2. Peapod sounds cool. I’ve never tried a delivery service before. These sound like fun things to look forward to for sure! Thanks for sharing with us at Mommy Monday! xoxo

    • I wish I could…no place at work and by the time I get home it’s time to get Dino…unless I nap for fifteen minutes at home before getting him…but Balboa would never let me sleep….LOL

  3. Hey there! I’m catching up on some of your blog posts (while pumping). Love Peapod! If possible, I get it delivered during the el cheapo times. I can’t wait to see what Dino will be for Halloween! Have you gone apple/pumpkin picking yet?

    • I may wait till Wednesday next time for delivery…since I ordered a lot for this time. Wednesdays are the green days, and I can have them come around dinner time. I remember multitasking when pumping…oh the memories, LOL. We are going today…can’t wait… Dino will love it.

Would love to read your thoughts
