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?
This article titled Ohio Police Help Man Who Was Being Followed Home By A Pig. Oh my goodness, I could not love this story more. Police responded to what they thought was a drunk call. Instead they found a sober man on foot being followed by a pig who wouldn’t stop nudging him. Turns out the pig just wanted to be petted!
2) What blog post should you check out?
**I had a Meet and Greet recently where I asked bloggers to share their favorite posts from 2017. I’m going to a highlight a post a week from the links left. If you would like to leave a link and have a piece highlighted on a Week in Review post, click here to leave it in the comments.**
3) What’s been going on this week?
I’m going to be honest here. It’s been busy. Again. Between work and home I feel like someone needs something from me every single second of the day. I’m feeling worn down.
I have to give a shout out though to my mom who helped me big time with our garage sale last weekend. It was a bust, but I think everyone had a good time anyway. The kids liked having their Nana around all day.
Then another shout out goes to my girl Katy. Shes’ a friend who saw me struggling and dropped off food for dinner and breakfast one day. She didn’t ask. She just did it. And you know what? It was a huge, delicious help. Also, since I can tell you first hand that Katy’s food is so yummy, I’m also going to tell you that you should click here to check out her latest recipe post, 3 Super Simple Summer Side Dishes.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Pedicures. Woot woot! My sisters and mom have our annual (and belated this time) Mother’s Day pedicures this weekend. My feet certainly need some love. Cannot wait!
5) Did you miss this post?
5 Fun and Cheap Outside Activities for your Toddler. This is an oldie but a goodie. What would you add to the list?
6) What did my kids create?
An arcade game. We’ve discovered the movie Wreck-It Ralph at our house. While that’s been playing on repeat a curiosity for old school 80s arcade games has also been born. We’ve been watching a lot of Pac Man and other games on Youtube since.
Naturally that made my son REALLY want an arcade game for the house. He asked for one for weeks. We finally got through to him that they are just too big and cost too much for us to have at this very second. So the engineering stinker made his own!
He built a box out of his magnatiles. Made a quarter slot and left a hole. Then he download some arcade games to his tablet and put his tablet in the box he built. Viola! The picture is of his first version that he has improved upon a lot since. Anyway, now we have a homemade arcade at home now. Pretty cool.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
