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?
Companies that follow up to a digital inquiry with a phone call or a request for me to call them. This has happened several times recently. I’ll go to the “Contact Us” section of a website for the email or even submit their inquiry form only to get a follow up phone call or request to call them. It’s becoming a pet peeve of mine.
There’s a reason I am reaching out in this manner. I work full time, and it can be hard to call during business hours. Or if I am home it can be hard to be on the phone with the two kids around. If there is an option to get in touch with a company digitally why aren’t they following up in the same way?
2) What post should you check out?
I’ve been reminded this week of an older post a friend of mine wrote about stripes and maternity clothes. At least half my closet and half maternity clothes sections in stores are filled with horizontal stripes. Why? Why? We don’t need any help looking wider. Have you noticed this before?

3) What’s been going on this week?
I don’t really know. I think I’ve gone through this week kind of in a haze. Work has been busy. The kids have been fevered and under the weather with stupid summer colds. We’ve just been getting through each day as it comes this week.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
If you’ve casually read my blog for any length of time or if we are friends on social media you’ll probably know that my kiddos are pretty big fans of the Paw Patrol. Thanks to the Oklahoma City Moms Blog I’ve scored tickets to Paw Patrol Live this weekend. My kids’ excitement for this is rivaling them looking forward to their birthdays or Christmas. They may think I’m a super hero right now. We are all pumped up for it!
5) Did you miss this post?
6) What did my kids create?
My son has been obsessed with trains for three or four years. It started to taper off recently. I nonchalantly packed the train toys up in the garage, not ready to give them away yet. As soon as I did that of course he started wanting to play with his trains again. When he couldn’t find them, out came the magna-tiles and some improvising. I am trying to scale back their things, but I guess if he is still wants to play with the train stuff I’ll be bringing it back in from the garage.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
