I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series, Week in Review, posted every Friday. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down and tell me about yours.
1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
McDonalds. Yes you read that right. McDonalds more than got my attention this week. Even though I think they have yummy coffee and breakfast, it has been a minute since I’ve eaten at one. I got invited by way of the Oklahoma City Moms Blog to come tour their kitchen and try their hand-stirred cherry limeades (paired with a pico guacamole grilled chicken sandwich) for their #summeriscoming campaign. Guys, it was a perfect limeade. Seriously.
Also, a few bonus bits of information, right now they have Super Mario toys in their kids meals. Surely I’m not the only one with kids obsessed with Mario??? And one of the managers let me know know that mornings are the best time to bring your younger ones in to play if you are looking for a more laid back experience. Most people are going through the drive through then, and there’s a good chance you’ll have the place almost to yourself.
2) What blog should you check out?
The Fiance Patriot. The Finance Patriot is a 40 year old CPA well on his way to an early retirement. Which isn’t that everyone’s life dream? It is his actual life goal though, and he makes it seem more attainable for the rest of us. He is very open about his financial history, strategies, and smart ways to save. The post I specifically took a lot away from was how he planned and budgeted for their family’s dream vacation.
3) What’s been going on this week?
Reading and cooking. My summer reading list is full thanks to some friends offering solid recommendations. First up is A.D. 30. I’ve had a hard time putting it down. Also, I’ve made some tasty food that I didn’t get pictures of. So I won’t be writing posts about them, but I am still dreaming of the shredded beef tacos and apple fritters from earlier this week. . . .
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Norman Music Festival. We will get to cross one thing off from My Family’s Non-Bucket List Spring/Summer Bucket List this weekend. The kiddos and I are meeting up with a group of friends and family to hang out and listen to some good music. I wouldn’t mind a repeat of the impromptu dance party all the kids had on Main Street last year.
