Hi, guys! I’m sharing another large family grocery haul video, and this time, it’s a Costco haul! We also stopped off at Jewel on the way home and picked up some birthday foods that I also include in this week’s haul video.
I hope you enjoy it!
I crossed 9 out of 10 of my goals off my list for last week.
Once again, I didn’t finish my 2016 goals post, but I did make some progress on it. I think my problem is that mentally I keep telling myself that it’s going to be difficult to explain exactly how I work my Google Calendar. I feel like it’s better to show you how I use it and not try to explain it in a blog post. So I’ve decided that instead of trying to spell out how I use my Google Calendar, I’m going to create a video and show you how I use it for every single day of my life.
I’m hoping to get that video filmed soon, but my computer is acting crazy again so it’ll probably be a week or so before I can get that uploaded to YouTube and shared in a blog post. At the moment, I’m using the computer we won at a Twitter party, but it doesn’t have the movie editing software, iMovie, that I use to edit videos.
So…I’m going to wait to film, edit, and upload until after my computer gets repaired.
And actually, my husband, Ruben, took Herb (my computer) to the Apple store today and we found out that I need a new hard drive. Thankfully, since my computer can be considered a dinosaur as far as laptops go, it won’t cost much to replace it. But my laptop won’t be fixed until the end of this week.
Oh, well! There’s all that happening, and then my dad will be visiting from Mexico tomorrow. And I’m not quite sure how long he’ll be staying since he likes to buy one-way tickets. 😉
But anyway, here’s what I accomplished last week:
Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family
Plan a birthday meal and decorations
Do resistance band exercises 4x
Walk a total of 140 minutes on the treadmill
5. Share my 2016 goals in a blog post
Home Management Goals:
Clean and organize Elisabeth’s Play-Doh area
Fill one box with items to donate
Shoot, edit, & upload at least one new video to our family YouTube channel
Shoot, edit, & upload at least one new video to my YouTube channel
Here are my goals for this week:
1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family
2. Play outside with the kids
3. Do resistance band exercises 4x
4. Walk a total of 200 minutes on the treadmill — I’m increasing this goal, and just in time because we indulged in a big family birthday meal today.
5. Read at least 5 pages from each of these books: Toward a Growing Marriage by Gary Chapman, Be the Best Mom You Can Be by Marina Slayton, and Influencer Marketing for Dummies (I won this book at a Twitter party, and I’m loving it!)
6. Journal 2x
Home Management Goals:
7. Clean the bathrooms
8. Fill a bag with items to donate
9. Better optimize at least 3 videos on our family YouTube channel
10. Return emails
What are your goals for this week?
I enjoy using the Bella Ceramic Electric Skillet, and I know my family will be using it to cook a variety of different foods
for a long time to come. Thanks to Bella for sending me this electric skillet to review.

Hi, guys! Family meals are so important, but, for the most part, they need to be easy and doable, right? So to give you some family meal ideas, I’m sharing my very first What’s for Dinner video and hopefully, will be sharing many more this year!
I hope you enjoy the video, and thanks for watching!
You can find the the Big Family Homestead Buttermilk Biscuit recipe here. They’re absolutely delicious.
