Muffin Tin Monday - All About Me! Theme


This week brings a realization for me. I was trying to do it all. Trying to have a relaxing weekend. Trying to find the right day to make a muffin tin meal. Trying to meet the needs of my husband. Trying not to worry about my sons headaches. Sunday morning marked the 3rd headache in 10 days. He's had them off an on ever since he went to the hospital almost a year ago. I'm confident God is in control, but remain cautiously concerned...and try not to worry. I need to remember to stop "trying" and doing" and remember to just be. That life is in the being, not the doing.
In the midst of all that, we did manage to spend time sharing a Muffin Tin Meal. This week's theme is "All About Me". As with all the themes, it's so much fun to see what everyone does! If your curious about what Muffin Tin Monday is all about be sure to see my sidebar. So, here's what we did!


Favorite fruit for both kids: cantaloupe on skewers, Favorite food for Luke: pizza (pizza bagel bites), Hair: Yellow-shredded cheese, Show we love to watch: sponge bob fruit snacks, Age: in pretzels sticks dipped in frosting.
We picked up some super fun picks from an online/local company, Pick On Us Aren't they cute? Painted tulips! I'll have more of their products to share with you next week when we do the kebabs theme. All of their picks and skewers are made with bamboo, an eco-friendly renewable resource.



We also made an "All About Me" file folder book. At the time of this photo, I wasn't yet finished. Check back tomorrow for a full post on the finished product. The kids were super excited about this as well and want to bring it to school this week for "show and tell". So sweet!


So, friends. Did you make a Muffin Tin Meal this week? Won;t you share it with us? Be sure to leave the direct URL link to your Muffin Tin Monday post and not just your blog.

  1. I love what you did with this theme, your tin and your file folder too!

    I agree with all you said in your post--as a matter of fact, some of what you said about "being" is exactly what I emailed you last night that I am trying to remember myself right now!

    LOVE the picks.

    Prayers are with you!!

  12. Those picks are really neat! I also love the all about me book. I can't wait to see the finished project :0)

    I am the same way with the trying to do everything, I spend so much time in the planning and thinking about what we need to do that I sometimes forget about enjoying the moment.

    Prayers are with your family.
