This was also a good meal-planning week now that we've gotten back to our e-meals menus.  Thanks to my fabulously frugal and fun sister's advice, we do really well with these menus, but I get kind of off track sometimes and we end up eating a lot of spaghetti and grilled cheese sandwiches.  This week's best was an Italian-sausage soup -- totally yummy

Our 16-year-old son was nominated to apply for the United States House of Representatives page program.  The application went in this week; if he's accepted he'll be leaving us for D.C. in January and not coming home until June.  As hard as that will be, we're praying this opportunity will work out for him.  Really praying.

Brian and I booked our plans to celebrate our twentieth anniversary at the end of the month.  We're not going to go far, but it was fun to make the plans and look forward to them for a few weeks.

My new hat, bought from a street vendor in front of the Guggenheim. (thanks to Lael for helping me figure out which one to choose out of the gazillions there!)
