Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday!!

We had a pretty busy weekend with company and basketball!  Made a quick cheeseboardgarlic rolls (from pizza dough in the fridge), Mom’s green salad and baked pasta.

We still have some wine glasses to clean up! Oof.
