Happy Homemaker Monday

Happy New Year! Finally getting back to normal after a busy few weeks; with the holiday's and a vacation to Florida, I think I am getting back into my normal routine. I still wish I was in Florida, even though it started to get cold there, it was still warmer than here at home. The frozen North is just not the place for me!

I am linking up with Diary of a Stay at Home Mom. Head on over to find some other great bloggers.

the next few are with my brother, nieces and my newest great nephew, Tucker... he is so adorable, and while still very tiny, he is getting bigger

New Year's Eve with my brother, sister inlaw and youngest

the first pic, is freezing rain on the trees in Florida..... yuck! The 2nd pic is in Tennessee on the rock walls, water that has froze.

What I'm wearing today... macaroon leggings and a teal colored top

On my prayer list... family and friends - to have a great 2018

A favorite Bible verse, devotion or quote for today...

In closing...Thank you for stopping by. I hope your week ahead is filled with lots of blessings!


  1. What a nice break from your frigid north to go to Florida - sorry they were having a cold snap while you were there! Have a GREAT week.

    1. It was nice to get away, seeing the sweet baby boy was worth the horrible ride home! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I enjoyed reading your post this week! I love your cute planner layout and, like you, I will be working on organizing my office area. It's actually been in the works since moving in here over a year ago, but just haven't got it set up as such yet. Will be glad when I can get it set up, usable, and efficient. Have a great week ahead! <3

    1. Now to figure out where to start, its making me so claustrophobic with the added table to hold the computer... I am thinking the glide rocker will be leaving and finding a new home where someone can truly enjoy it, rather than be a holding bin for clutter. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a wonderful quote for the week! The Florida pictures looks so nice (well, not the frozen ones, LOL)Fun snowman planner pages, something very cheerful about snowmen, I think. Have a great week!

    1. Snowmen are cheery aren't they! Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. Have a great week! we're planning a 4-day trip to Florida in February so it's nice to see your pictures.

    1. Enjoy your trip! I am ready to go back! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Tucker is adorable, and I love love love your planner layout.
    It's in the 30's here, and it feels like a heatwave!

    1. Thanks! Isn't it funny how we think 30's are a heatwave in January, when any other time we would be freeing?? LOL Thanks for stopping by!

  6. After having all of those negative temps here in MI the past week, it felt WARM today! Got to 37 in the Detroit area. Love your planner layout!

    1. And its only going to get warmer as the week goes on for us... but then back to the colder temps :(! Thanks for stopping by!!

  7. Hi Jodi! Hope you're having a great week. ;) Your new nephew is such a Pumpkin!! I need to organize my office/craft space so badly too. Looking for my 2018 motivation. Lol


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you liked your visit! Be blessed!
