1) What’s gotten my attention this week?
Hurricane Harvey. The devastation happening to our neighbors is overwhelming. NPR posted an extensive list of ways we can help that you can click here for. Also, it’s been reported that relief packages do not include diapers or wipes. The City Moms Blog Network is selling shirts and totes that you can click here for. 100% of funds raised will go to the Texas diaper bank.
2) What blog should you check out?
Mollie Mom of Three. Mollie is another fellow Oklahoma City Moms Blog Contributor that I am excited to highlight. She is a former school teacher turned stay-at-home mom to 3 kids under 5! She is a warm and welcoming extrovert all about authenticity. She posts recipes, design ideas, thoughts on marriage and more. Check it out.
3) What’s been going on this week?
Looking forward. Work has been busy. We had the second full week of school for my son, and I am just a touch more tired everyday than I should be. Since it’s September, Happy September by the way, I am day dreaming of time not so far away from now. This week I have been looking forward to Fall. Bad.
It will be a time at home when everyone is settled into the new school routine and schedule. The air outside will be crisp but comfortable. There will be a ton of soup and chili on the stove top. I can’t wait. Honestly, I have to partially blame it on college football starting this weekend and all the pumpkin spice items appearing in the store.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Birthday parties and cookouts. We have a few family and friends with both these things this weekend. We are going to try to hit as many as we can. Maybe one day this weekend I’ll get to sleep in? Fingers and toes crossed.
5) Did you miss this post?
A Very Pink Flamingo Day. We had a birthday celebration last weekend for one very special little lady 🙂
