Meal plans and the week ahead

I cannot believe today is supposed to hit 80 degrees!  Granted, it's supposed to start raining and storming (even thought its not yet and it was supposed to have been already... we'll see if it actually storms or not), but 80 degrees... yeah!  :o)  Yesterday was awesome and this week looks pretty great, too.  Carson and I planted some peas, beets, and spinach in the veggie garden yesterday.  We got a lot of yard work done, too.  It was so nice to be outside nearly the entire day and night. 

Today we are headed to church.  We're going to make a trip to Tractor Supply Co. this afternoon to check out the baby chicks and bunnies and pick up a few things.  Thursday I am going out to dinner with some friends and I need to drop our milk jars and cooler off at Diane's house.  Friday is my flex day.  Carson and I are going to do something fun, but I'm not sure what yet.  If the weather is nice, we're going to go to MSU for the Butterflies in the Garden.  Saturday we are headed to Grand Rapids for my niece's 3rd birthday party. 

Here's the plan... I haven't decide what all I'll do for extras this week, so only today is filled in.

Sounds like a nice week. Glad things worked out for the milk pick up. That should save you some time.

Looking forward to seeing you guys on Saturday! Hopefully the weather is still nice.
