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?
Are we all ready to move on to Christmas yet? Because I stumbled across this article about Blue Bell Christmas Cookies Ice Cream. I know that Blue Bell isn’t sold nationwide. So for those of you who aren’t familiar with it, I’m sorry that you are missing out on some of the best ice cream money can buy. For those of you who are familiar with Blue Bell, have you ever heard of or tried this?! It kinda sounds gross, like it would be too sweet. But I’m also completely curious.

3) What’s been going on this week?
Happy Belated Thanksgiving. How was your holiday? We spent it with the in-laws and had a delicious time.
Thanks to my amazing sister for babysitting my kids, the hubs and I were able to catch Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Have you seen it yet? What did you think? Let’s talk wizards.
It felt like the later Harry Potter movies, and it was so fun to see Hogwarts again. I think I need to re-watch it though. There are so many characters and backstories taking place that I’m sure I missed things. Also, some of the timelines between this movie and Harry Potter didn’t seem to add up to me. But overall I thought it was pretty good.
4) What’s going on this weekend?
Maybe some clean eating and catching up on things around the house that need attention?
5) Did you miss this post?
Instant Pot Beef and Vegetable Soup. A recipe for a complete meal ready in about 15 minutes.
6) What did my kids create?
A Metroid cake. Well kinda. My son is still into old school video games. He and my husband had been watching about the history of Metroid all last week. So my son wanted to make a Metroid cake for my husband’s birthday. Guys, I’m no cake decorator. So my daughter and I whiped up some brownies. My son taped printed Metroid images on some straws and stuck those into the brownies. Ta-da! I present to you our Metroid cake.
Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
