Bello is Back! The Big Apple Circus in NY!

Bello is Back! Under the Big Apple Big Top performing breathtaking feats of humor in the theatrical focus of one ring with no seat more than 50 feet away!

It seems like only yesterday that this daredevil clown made his hair-raising New York debut with the Big Apple Circus. He’s been a big star all over the world ever since and was recently named "America's Best Clown" by Time Magazine.

Bello is joined by a world of stellar circus stars:
*From Spain, Picaso Jr. returns with his sizzling style and extraordinary juggling act — puffing into the air up to five ping-pong balls simultaneously, and catching them — with his mouth!

*From Russia, the Aniskin Troupe amaze with their bravura, athletic trampoline act — then soar into the Big Top stratosphere with their spectacular flying trapeze act!

*The Big Apple Circus' own lovely and graceful Regina Dobrovitskaya performs a shimmering spectacle on aerial silk ribbons!

*Equestrians Christine Zerbini and Sultan Kumisbayev present an electrifying riding act — standing atop galloping chargers, Roman–style!

*Luciano Anastasini’s Pound Puppies (all rescued from animal shelters) return for a joyously jumping mélange of human and canine acrobatics!

Of course there’s more and for an extra measure of love and laughter, there’s the Big Apple Circus' very own clown -- Grandma.

You can follow the Big Apple Circus on their Facebook page and on Twitter, too!

Menu Plan Monday- Spooky Edition

Halloween is this weekend so I thought I would attempt to do a Spooky Menu Plan Monday. I hope my family likes it and has a little fun with it this week. This will probably be the last Menu Plan Monday that I do for a couple of weeks. We are closing on our new house next Monday and then my husband leaves to play Sailor for a little longer than a week. When he is gone we usually just eat simple small meals. I really only make real dinners for him anyways. My toddler is too picky and usually never eats what I make. So this will be it for about two weeks! Wish me luck attempting to move my family. Good thing we aren't moving far!

Monday- Eyeball Taco Salad
Tuesday- Slithering Snakewich 
Wednesday- Leftovers
Thursday- Spaghetti Oozing Eyeballs

Friday- Ratloaf (meatloaf)

Menu plan monday 10/19

Wow, I'm a little late getting a menu up for today. With two weeks left until moving day, we are still working on clearing things from the cabinets.  I keep looking in one of our food cabinet and it is overflowing. But why can't I find anything to eat? After taking better inventory, I realized its all baking things! Duh! We can't eat bread crumbs and cornstarch for dinner! I can't wait until we move to our new house and finally get a pantry! So here is what I've come up with to eat this week. There is a lot of chicken on our menu this week because we have been without chicken for nearly two weeks now!!!! We ran out and I just never got back to Sam's Club to get another bag. But also I had a ton of beef and pork from when I got it on sale a few weeks back that needed to be eaten. I am making up for the lack of chicken this week! Here is what we are having.

Monday- Chicken, brown rice and peas
Tuesday- Tortellini soup
Wednesday- Pan fried chicken with cheesey potatoes
Thursday- Leftovers
Friday- hodge podge of clearing out the freezer, fridge and cabinets

Carolina Pad Review, coupon and giveaway!

Recently Carolina Pad sent me a set of organizational products to use and write about. I was so excited when they came! It had all sorts of funny goodies in it! Here is what they sent to me and what you can win!
  • 1-subject notebook
  • Ideal book
  • Personal Book
  • 3-ring binder
  • tab dividers
  • file folders
  • 13 pocket expandable folder
  • coupon folder
  • 19 month planner
  • Stick-on notes/flags

I am really excited to have these great things right in the middle of moving!

The planner is helping me to remember what day things are being done in the new house and it is helping me remember all the different appointments my family has, such as which child gets which dose of flu vaccine and when.

The 13 pocket expandable folder is where I am keeping all the important papers. I was keeping them in a file cabinet, but can you imagine 5' me trying to carry a file cabinet out of the car in case we had to evacuate due to a hurricane? Not very pratical. So inside holds our insuance papers, shot records, titles to the vehicles and house, anything else I think is important and an updated picture of my kids. Should anything happen to them, I won't be deprately trying to rip a picture out of the scrapbook I made for them. (Who am I kidding, with 2 kids under 2 there is no completed scrapbook, wishful thinking.)

The 3 ring binder is becoming our Home Manegement Notebook. The purpose of this notebook is basically to be command central. Once my kids get older and busier it will really help to keep us running smoothly. Inside will contain our menu for the week, my cleaning schedule (trying really hard to stay on top of the toddler messes), a monthly calendar, important numbers (Grandma and the insurance guy), the daily routine (in the making) and a few other things.  I am usuing the tab dividers for the different sections.

The coupon folder is great for the average couponer. It doesn't quite work for the person who clips hundreds of coupons a month. My mom clips what she knows she'll use. This would be perfect for her! Instead I am usuing it to put my ideas in. If I see a cute art project to do with the kids, a recipe to try or a room decorating idea, I will put it in my little organizer. Also, since we are moving and decorating it will be used for paint swatches and clippings from magazines.

I use the 1subject notebook to do some brainstorming, the mini notebook to keep at my computer for passwords, and the other small notebook to keep information straight for my blog and to write things down when I am talking on the phone.

I'm loving my Carolina Pad stuff! Would you like to enjoy some really cool stuff too? Carolina Pad has given me a coupon code to share with my readers! Use the code HC_Coupon at checkout and receive a free coupon expandable file folder! What an awesome deal!

Menu Plan Monday 10/5

Oh man! Talk about a week! It has been so crazy here! The next thing I tell you will prove that it has been busy. You ready for this? It has been so busy that:
1. I haven't clipped my coupons from this past week! Shhh don't tell! I usually clip them every Sunday afternoon.
2. I didn't make a menu last week (total household destruction followed, more on that to follow) nor did I go grocery shopping!

Now maybe you are thinking, "well you must be sick or have sick kids." NOPE! Well maybe you are thinking "you had alot of important meetings and evening activites." NOPE! This week we found and signed a contract on our first house! And being that we weren't actively looking to buy a house, we had alot of things to do. So as of now, November 2nd will the next biggest day of our lives!

So what happened when I didn't plan our meals or go grocery shopping? Fast food. We ate out more this week than I would have liked. My goal was to eat some of the random foods in our cabinets and freezer, less in there is less I have to pack up and move. Also the reason I didn't go to the store was because my husbands work shift moved from mornings to overnight. If I'm going to go to the store with the kids, it's best to do in the morning when they are well rested and not cranky. Well Wednesday morning we were signing contracts, not grocery shopping. I figured we had enough food, we would make do. Again, failure. So this week I am making the plan now. I am going ot go to the grocery store tomorrow. No, it isn't double dollar coupon day but we really have nothing to eat. I'm going to get the food for the next two days and on Wednesday I will do the big grocery shopping with my menu. So here is what we are having this week.

Monday- Slow Cooker Beef Bourguignon
Tuesday- Southwestern Soup

Wednesday- Fuss Free Ravioli and Cheese Bake
Thursday- Left overs
Friday- Chicken Wings
