Monday's Meals

I have been MIA for a week or so, I'll catch up soon. Things have just been crazy busy. I started school three weeks ago and really wanted to hit the first class hard, because I just wanted it over with. Now that it is done I am back... I will blog more later.

Today's Monday Meal is: Chicken Pot Pie

This is a quick and hearty meal that can easily be a one dish meal. Nights like tonight when my DH is away, I can zip home, whip up dinner and have it piping hot on the table when the brood comes home. This is also an easy make ahead meal... however I didn't tonight.

Chicken Pot Pie
2 C- Chicken Breast- cooked and chopped
1 can of cream of chicken
1 can of cream of celery
2 bags of frozen veggies, thawed
1 can of cream of corn
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients together and top with bisquits. I make my own bisquits, but you can definitely use canned. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes and viola!

Please pray for baby Jeremiah

As many mommy bloggers do, I follow others and learn what works, what doesn't and so on. I share tips that I have as well as those that I pick up along the way. In addition to tips, etc. we learn to pray for others for their concerns and trials. Today Amanda and her family are at a crossroads. They are another quiverfull believing family, they recently (this past Tuesday) welcomed another bundle of joy into their lives. Baby Jeremiah.

The family is elated, however, Jeremiah is in the NICU on a ventilator. He is having trouble breathing. They are not allowed to touch or hold him at this time as the increased stimulation could result in further complications.

As a new mom once again, I understand how difficult this can be for her and her family. So I ask as you say your prayers tonight, please include baby Jeremiah and his parents and siblings in your prayers.

God Bless,



Well I've decided that I am going back to school... It really was inevitable, I've really wanted to for a long time, but now if I want to progress in my job much further I really need a degree. I've longed to go to nursing school, however I really can't justify leaving a perfectly good job making $45,000 a year to follow a dream. If I did I'd be giving up a retirement plan that I've been vested in for 8 of my 9 years here.

I have decided a degree in Marketing is my best bet. I've been "recruitted" a couple of times by various recruiters for the Navy, I even took my asfab, however I told them the only way I would join is if I could enlist  APG (Advance Pay Grade) bypassing boot camp... What I've learned... They hate when you know the lingo!

There are several jobs here in our Marketing department, and I know that I can do really well in those type of jobs.

So now I fill out our FASFA and wait... I'll keep writing about the process.

Family Business

For years my darling husband and I have talked about running a business. The drive is there, the ideas are there... the problem, financial availability. We have savings (not a lot, but a modest amount), we have investments, but neither is enough to get a new large business off the ground. I found this article over at
I'm hoping that it can guide us.

That being said, I am working on my children's products. I've got cloth diapers, blankets, burp rags, cloth wipes, infant leg warmers, a few dresses, and t-shirts galore. While this could definitely take off well, my partner and I were recently offered retail space, I don't know if it would be enough to replace the income that I am making now. That being said, there is another post coming later...
