Modest Monday and a Link Up!

I just returned home from our last convention of the year! We briefly talked about going to Colorado for a convention on our drive home, but I think we are tired and will just stay home. Everyone always asks how we do it all, and it’s definitely not without the help of family! My sister and mother in law watched the 4 children we left at home this time, and my sister was so great about getting them to all their music lessons and orchestra practices! So thankful!

It was such a crazy weekend, I just didn’t have time to take any outfit pictures. I’ll share the one picture that excited me the most this weekend though.

I met Sarah Mackenzie from Read Aloud Revival! She is the author of Teaching From Rest, A Homeschooler’s Guide to Unshakeable Peace. That book has blessed me in so many different ways and I desperately wanted to meet her and give her a hug. She is as cute as can be, and just as sweet and joyful as I had imagined! It was so great to sit in on one of her early morning talks before the vendor hall opened up! If you haven’t read her book yet, make it a priority for your summer break from school!

I came home to children that were longing to talk, so we stayed up late being together as a family. Today is beyond full, I told the children I have one big week of work left and then May should calm down! The Homemaking Bundle starts this Wednesday and I can’t wait to share more information about it with you all!!

Enjoy the link up, and have a great Monday!

Introducing The Well Ordered Kitchen!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I’m beyond excited to finally show you all the huge project we have been working on.

Ecstatic might be a better word!

Sean and I have been working on creating a kitchen planner since January. Sean in particular has been at his computer designing page after page and coming up with new ideas of what to include. I’ve been the person he bounces ideas off of and asks for practical tips since I’m the one actually in the kitchen!

Months later…we are ever so pleased to introduce to you The Well Ordered Kitchen, the only kitchen menu planner that you will ever need!

But wait. It’s so much more than just a few menu planning pages!

The Deluxe and Premium version has over 95 pages included; that’s right – over 95 pages! There are monthly and weekly menu planning sheets, grocery shopping lists, over 130 labels to print off and use in the kitchen, quick reference sheets (in mason jar graphics!), recipe sheets and cards, recipe dividers, some of our family favorite recipes, and much more!

The theme of the planner is mason jars, but you won’t find cutesy little mason jar graphics scattered everywhere. Instead, Sean kept the planner clean and fresh, with custom graphics he personally designed. He made sure to leave plenty of room for you to write your menu plans and recipes down.

There are 3 different versions of the Well Ordered Kitchen!

The Basic Version 

The basic version includes 12 thoughtfully designed kitchen planner pages and is a great place to start if you’re just looking for the bare necessities. It includes weekly and monthly meal planning pages, a master grocery list, a full-letter recipe sheet along with a custom recipe divider sheet, a mason jar shaped quick reference chart, and more!

The Deluxe Version

The deluxe version is truly the ultimate kitchen planner. With over 95 pages, this version includes everything in the basic version and adds a whole lot more! The deluxe version includes multiple meal planning page versions, pantry and freezer inventory sheets, 8 additional mason jar shaped quick-reference guides, 3 recipe card designs along with 36 recipe card dividers, 5 custom kitchen helper sheets, over 130 pantry organization labels, and much more!

The Premium Version

Finally, there’s the premium version. As if the deluxe version wasn’t enough already, the premium version includes the 95+ page Well Ordered Kitchen planner and adds a detailed video tutorial which walks you through every page of your planner. There’s also an video tour of a kitchen that has been extremely well organized to provide you with some inspiration to create your own “well ordered kitchen”. Also included is a custom hand drawn art print of the Well Ordered Kitchen Mason jar for you to print out and display in your home! Finally, you’ll be given exclusive access to the Well Ordered Kitchen private Facebook group where you’ll find tips and inspiration for meal planning, recipes, kitchen organization and more!

Sean and I are so pleased to be able to offer this resource to you all. We’ve put a lot of thought and hard work into making it a truly useful tool in the kitchen. We can’t wait to see what you do with it as you continue on your homemaking journey!

We had a beautiful spring day for Easter Sunday, and I loved getting to hear an amazing cantata sing for church in the morning! Easter is such a special day to celebrate the life of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! When you stop to think through all He did for us, it’s extremely humbling. There really are no words for it.

3 of the 4 girls are wearing matching dresses from Costco! Some were gifts for birthdays, and then I didn’t get there soon enough to grab the other two dresses, so Deborah had to wear a different style. Costco has had such adorable dresses for great prices this year!

I found this dress at Marshalls on Saturday, and really liked it! Of course it’s blue. Ha! I wanted to find something floral or lace for Easter, but this worked shopping last minute. 🙂

And this is why there is such a thing as Halftees! I’m wearing the ¾ length sleeve Halftee here, and it was perfect for wearing to make this dress a little more modest!

I’m loving the new braided leather headbands that Lilla Rose recently came out with! I finally got around to ordering the blue and tan color ones and let me tell you, these are pretty amazing headbands! They don’t slip one tiny bit all day long, so if you have ever said that you could never find a headband to work in your hair, give one of these a try!!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter Sunday!

What I Wore

Dress – London Times Brand

Halftee – ¾ Length Halftee from Deborah & Co.

Sandals – Kohls

Headband – Jean Braided Leather Headband from Lilla Rose

Earrings – Meadowland Design

Makeup – Younique

Free Grocery Shopping List Printable!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I’m on a mission this year to be more organized. By now you would think I’d have it all together, but I still have a lot to work on!

I want to actually use the planners I buy, instead of them sitting on the shelf.

I’m tired of waking up in the morning with no clue what to fix, and we are out of eggs and milk because I wasn’t better prepared.

Can anyone relate?

It’s hard work to run a house. It’s even harder to run a house and feel like you are a pro at it, which is why you need good resources to assist you!

I’m excited to share some new resources with you over the next few weeks, but for now we wanted to give you a free shopping list printable that Sean designed! You can write in the names of the grocery stores you commonly shop at (for me it’s Aldi and Hyvee, plus Costco). If you have another store you normally shop at, write it in the blank section!

Click here to have this form sent to you for free!

Here are some ideas on how to best use this shopping list. 

~ Put it on your fridge and have a weekly shopping list. As you are cooking in the kitchen, write down items that you notice you might need. If you use the last jar of something in your pantry, stop and put it on the shopping list right away before you forget!

~ Take this list and do a walk through your pantry before you go grocery shopping, plus your fridge! Look for anything else you forgot to write down throughout the week.

~ If you don’t like the idea of leaving it on your fridge, print off 50 or so at a time and have your local copy store put it into a pad. It’s really easy to do and I don’t think it costs very much. You can keep the pad in the kitchen and then tear off the list when it’s time to go shop!
