weekend improvements

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. The weekend here started off a bit hairy. The weather was a little disappointing Saturday, gray and misting. Then Sunday it was cloudy, but eventually the sky cleared up and there were lovely breezes. Ryno and I spent most of the weekend catching up on sleep, driving around Austin searching for our next place of residence and organizing our lives. I started with the goal of cleaning out my blog reader. I am so far behind with some of my favorite blogs, so I thought it would be rewarding to catch up. Of course I got distracted along the way by one of the blogs I was reading, and instead ended up developing a menu-plan system for us. I found a great post from Simple Mom that lays out how she structures her menu-plan, and I decided to follow it word for word. So now Ryno and I have themed meals for each night of the week, and I have started saving recipes for us to reference. Tonight, otherwise known as fish night, we are going with Martha Stewarts's Salmon with Mango Salsa recipe. I am really excited to get us back into a routine (hopefully); I will let you all know how we do with the planning.

ps- this photo is not of the salmon with mango salsa recipe, but doesn't it look delicious?
