{Meal Plan} Pinning and Planning Our Dinner Menu – Week of August 14

In a blink of an eye, the sun has set on our summer vacation; it seems like just yesterday I shared our Summer Bucket List. Although summer vacation was only 67 short days, my family and I had an action-packed adventure across the state traveling from Tampa to Tallahassee to Captiva to Orlando. Now it’s time to begin the back to school journey.

Wakula Springs - Tallahassee

And what a journey it will be as my oldest daughter begins high school, my middle daughter starts sixth grade in middle school and Little Lion Man enters first grade!

After celebrating for what seemed like the entire month of July with three birthdays and Independence Day, now it’s time to focus my energy on planning healthy school lunches and protein-packed, portion controlled healthy meals again. For the most part, I navigated well through the summer temptations, but I need to get back to work in more ways than one now that the kids are out of my hair.

I honestly feel a bit like this mom.

Or may be a bit like this. If you meet me at Datz tomorrow, then we can recreate this #TeamWooHoo mom high five moment.

And then after brunch at Datz, it’s time to get back to our regualrly scheduled program.
