WEEK IN REVIEW: SEPT. 19-25, 2016
This was a jam-packed and awesome week!
Mr. G and I took a 24-hour trip to Las Vegas from Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon. He had bought me tickets to see The Avett Brothers for my birthday. It was a great show and fun trip, which I will share more about in a separate post next week.
Saturday morning, we all went to The Local Donut to meet up with friends who we haven’t managed to all see together since they had a baby five months ago. It was a really nice visit (despite my spilling coffee all over the floor), and the donuts lived up to the hype! (I had a really hard time choosing, but ended up with a Nutella Croissant Donut – so good!)
On Saturday night, I hosted my craft group. We meet monthly(ish) and a different person hosts each month. We made Candy Corn Button Art and gabbed and noshed. It’s fun to have a girls night and end up with new holiday decor at the end of it! Sunday, I decided to give my candy corn a friend before I put all the supplies away.
When I picked the girls up from Grandma’s Sunday morning, we were listening to “Unsteady” in the car. Peanut was crying for her blankie, which I couldn’t get for her because it was in the way, way back. So Pumpkin starts singing along, but changes the words. “Hold. Hold onto me. Hold on to my blankie.” “Hold. Hold onto me. Because I need my blankie.” You get the idea. Pretty soon we were all cracking up – even Peanut! (I thought it was especially hilarious because I do this kind of thing all the time.)
While it’s been a tad light on posts here on my own blog this week, I did author or co-author three posts on the East Valley Moms Blog:
- Dogs vs. Kids: It turns out, they are not the same …
- Self-Love September: Embracing Motherhood (Part 3)
- Self-Love September: Look on the Bright Side
Favorite Meals this Week
Are we being honest? Prepared foods that come home from the store and into the oven and/or grill.
The week ahead so far looks to be pretty average compared to this past week, but getting everyone back in a routine is always a good thing!
