Not going into apologies.. just restarting my happy little home blog, lol.

We moved last week into a new apartment. A new, bigger place with a dining room and no carpeted kitchen!!! The new place is great, and the neighbors seem wonderful. Already helped us out with a car issue on a truck we borrowed for the move just because. Peanut doesn't get to roam free anymore and I think she's sad over that, but I also think she and I are going to start going for longer walks down the road.. now that we live on a road with a wide shoulder.

I'm very excited to have a normal looking home that easily accommodates company. We had my IL's over for dinner last weekend, and my mom was supposed to be this weekend.. but was too tired (she still  works overnights). Planning menu's with Sunday dinners is more fun now that I can share meals with friends and family.

This weeks menu is:
Sunday- Mustard Crusted Salmon, wild rice blend, vegetable medley
Monday - Hot dogs, tossed salad, macaroni salad
Tuesday - Spaghetti and Meatballs, tossed salad
Wednesday - grilled chicken salad
Thursday - mu shu pork, steamed veggies
Friday - take out?
Saturday - Luau party!!! Pineapple and shrimp skewers, rum glazed ribs, terriyaki chicken on a stick, cucumber salad, tossed salad, homemade fruit punch

the luau party is because it's our month for a small group get together we started back in april. My gf found an affordable and easy tiki party menu which helped as my original plan was serve grilled pineapple on the burgers, lol.

my shopping list is well planned, although I need to hit up 2 stores to get everything. Its not terrible though as one is near a laundromat ( no more washer and dryer for me, sigh) so I can do laundry and shop at the same time.
