The first day of school is Marvelous?!?!?!

Happy Marvelous Monday to you all! I’m having to use a bit of effort to put the Marvelous in my Monday today. It’s the first day of school and while the excitement is in full force today; I know that “back-to-school” brings a hectic schedule with it……frankly, I’m just not ready.

If you are employed by school, as I am, then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Not only does my job get more hectic, but the kids have various after school activities, homework, and getting everyone up and out the door on time is hectic in itself.

Thanks for letting me vent……. :0  And now on to positive thoughts……

Thank you Katie for hosting another round of Marvelous Monday and helping me get my thoughts in the right place!

Today is going to be marvelous because:

  • I already have dinner for tonight prepared at home and it’s a family favorite, so no complaining tonight. I’ll be sharing this make-ahead meal for you next week.
  • On Saturday, I got a fresh new haircut and color. That always makes me feel good!
  • The kiddos are excited about school and looked so darn cute today!

If you’re looking to do Taco Tuesday tomorrow, you’ve came to the right place. We had tacos last night. Landen had been requesting them for weeks and I figured that would be the perfect dinner for the night before the first day of school.

Make it a Marvelous Monday everyone!!

    Love the feeling of being organized at the start of the week. I always cook 2-3 meals on Sunday afternoon to get a jumpstart for the week and to have leftovers for lunches. Then I have a few loose meal ideas for the rest of teh week.
    My daughter starts kindergarten on Friday so I hope she is excited to go on her first day! Happy Back to School Monday to you!

      I try to do the same, Stephanie. It always makes for a smoother week, when food preparations are made. I hope your daughter has a great day at school Friday!!
