Week in Review

Week in Review 7/28/17

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?

Art via text. My sister sent this to me, and it kind of made my day.  The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art can only display a small fraction of their collection at a time. So they came up with a texting system for more of their pieces to be able to be viewed.

How does it work? Text “send me” and enter a feeling, a color, an emoji, or an item to 572-51. You’ll get a response with a piece of art related to what you sent. I’m not going to lie. I could probably do it all day long.

2) What blog should you check out?

3) What’s been going on this week?

Working from home. The A/C at work went out, and it’s been as high as 101 degrees in the great state of Oklahoma this week. So everyone got approved to work from home until further notice.

It sounds like that would be nice, right? But with a 2 and 5 year old, it’s proven to be a bit tricky. Like when my son sneaked into my bedroom where I had set up shop and heartily yelled, “MINIONS!!!” into the phone receiver while I was on a call with a client.

Work Shmork. They don’t get it.

4) What’s going on this weekend?

Another birthday party. My best friend has a son who is my son’s best friend, and their birthdays are a week apart. My son’s party was last weekend. So her son’s party is this weekend. Between the two of these kids there has been so much birthday excitement and anticipation!

5) Did you miss this post?

Remind me not to do THIS again. Do you ever bite off more than you can chew? And then do you do it again? Check out this post from earlier this week and let me know if you can relate.


Thanks for reading. How was your week? Tell me, what are you up to this weekend?

    1. Yes, I thought the 5 presents was cute too. They were small, like one was a bag of skittles and one was a book. He loved opening them though. Thanks for reading Rhonda. I hope you had a good weekend.


      1. Oh gosh– kids do have a lot of toys to keep track of these days! I copied your idea and got 6 (small!) gifts for our grand-girl who is turning 6. Her birthday is on the same day as our daughter’s wedding next week– so I have to pack them into my smallish suitcase!! Thanks for the fun idea Lacey!! xox
