If you can't already tell I la la love coffee.  This past week was seriously rough due to needing a vacation from my vacation.  We took a trip to Lake Tahoe for 5 days and coming back home to loads of laundry, work and getting the kids back on track has driven me to load up on coffee like no other.  For obvious reasons I haven't been able to sleep at night.  So what's a mama to do?  I need to stock up on these products for coffee lovers, duh!  Just the sent of coffee could keep me going.

To be quite honest the last 11 years my husband and I have always spent Valentine's Day with our kids. Call it "mom guilt" if you want. I'm always in that guilty mindset if I don't include my kids in dinner plans. This year for Valentine's Day I think we need "us" time, alone. I'm thinking a nice romantic dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco. And you know what this mama is thinking right? We could do it on the Saturday before V Day since it falls on a Tuesday ! Ha, I just can't do it to my kids! Seriously, they give me guilt trips all the time.  I rarely get to go out on date nights so I've been thinking of what I'd like to wear so here's my favorite picks.

Easy Weeknight Meal for Busy Families : Potato Soup 

As a mama of 3 you know I always need a little help here and there.  The kids have been on Christmas vacation for the past two weeks so it's been nice having that extra time out of the car!  The kids go back to school tomorrow (can you see my sad face?) and I'm a little excited to not have screaming kids arguing and a clean house for like an hour.  Since the beginning of the New Year I've been writing down every meal that I want to make for the week in my planner.  One meal a week will include an easy weeknight meal in the slow cooker.  My husband loves potato soup so I wanted to surprise him when he got home from work with a nice creamy pot of his fav.  The potato soup was a quick meal and didn't take long at all. The kids helped prepare everything which was fun experience (potato peelings on the floor and large chunks of potatoes for the win)!  But seriously, this meal will be perfect for cold rainy nights, practice nights, and busy weeknights !

I will admit half the time I can't remember where I put my keys, what day of the week it is or what's going on for the next day.  I guess it comes with the territory of Motherhood.  Everyday I'm pulled in so many different directions and asked "where's this where's that?", "What time is the party?", "What time is the game?" and "Have you seen ... ?".   I'm putting a stop to it all and organizing my family in 5 easy steps.

Can you relate to how this momma is feeling?  Don't you want to get organized and simplify your life?

Find a few feet of wall space to get your family all set up.  Make sure it's in a central location so everyone in the family can have access.
