Just a few days ago I realized it was time to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinners. Within minutes my brain running wild in five different directions of all the overwhelming details that needed to be planned. Who all is coming over? How many different dinners are we going to have? What are we going to serve?

A few days ago, a cold front swept across the Midwest leaving us with extreme Fall-like weather.We went from shorts and tees to hoodies, jackets and pants. The short tease of the Fall season leaves me wanting to go on hayrides and apple-picking more than ever.

When my friend, Ashley, and I get together with the kids, we like to have fun. She jumps at any excuse to have a themed party, dinner, or playdate. However most of the time, she doesn’t even need a reason (or lots of guests) to do so. I remember last year when her oldest started preschool, she had a huge school-themed layout complete with decorations, just for her 3-year-old’s breakfast.

I’m excited to say that we have survived two weeks of school. Ethan loves Kindergarten, he hasn’t been late (yet) and I haven’t forgotten to pick him up! That is all an accomplishment in it’s own. But there is one thing I am still having a hard time with… weeknight dinners.

As I try to lead a healthy lifestyle, some days it seems difficult. Those days that my ‘To Do’ list is over a page long and I am multitasking every second I get. Yes, that is often, and trying to stay on track with my health and what I consume isn’t always easy.
