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?
A blow up weenie dog. One of my oldest and dearest friends lives about an hour and a half away. That doesn’t sound like a huge distance. Each of us has small kids and full time jobs though. So we don’t get to see each other nearly as often as we’d like.
My friend recently sent us a care package full of goodies, including a blow up Christmas dachshund! Those 2 mini dachshunds I’m holding are Dixie and Snickers, our fur children. The kids have named the blow up weenie Ruffie.
2) What blog should you check out?
The Spectacled Bean. The author of the blog is Ally Bean who wears spectacles. Thus the name of the blog. And you know what? The blog is as witty as it’s name. Plus it’s been around for over a decade. A decade! Ally cleverly writes her observations and musings from Midwest suburbia, and it will have you chuckling along the way. Check it out.

3) What’s been going on this week?
Pre-Time Off Slump. I get a pretty decent chunk of time off work around the holidays, and I am finding HARD to stay motivated until that time off starts. So instead of complaining to you about being tired and trying to make it through the home stretch, enjoy a collage of pictures from some birthday parties we’ve attended over the last few weekends.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
The holiday whirlwind begins. We have Christmas 1 of 4 this weekend. Plus we are taking the kids on a Christmas train ride. My kids’ excitement for the season is contagious though, and his former bah humbug is actually looking forward to it.
5) Did you miss this post?
I live with a 5 year old inventor. I love the way my son’s mind works. He’s always building and creating. Check out this post for just a few of his inventions.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? Tell me, what are you up to this weekend?
