Week in Review

Week in Review 5/24/2019

I hope everyone had a great week. Thanks for checking out my weekly series posted every Friday, Week in Review. Enjoy a recap of how the week went down, and tell me about yours.

1) What’s gotten my attention this week?

Whiskey Cake. My niece, mom, and sister happened to be by my office around lunchtime one day last week. (Yes, I know this is from last week but still worth mentioning, I promise!) So I know I am behind the times, and everyone but me has probably tried this place. It’s made from scratch menu sources as much as it can locally. I had a soup and sandwich combo. Even though that seems simple, everything was fresh and on point.


2) What post should you check out?

Ordinary is Beautiful on the blog Deep as Thoughts. I tend to agree with this post, that we don’t always have to bold and outstanding. There is beauty and happiness and contentment in ordinary. You should check it out.

3) What’s been going on this week?

Everything. No really, everything.

I am an aunt again! My sweet sister gave birth to her first baby, a perfect boy. I had a niece and nephew graduate high school. We are all over the moon excited.

Monday I worked from home and the kids were out of school for tornado threats. We have had eye appointments, dentist appointments, theme days at school.

But you know what? Today is the last day of school, and this is how we feel about it!

4) What’s going on this weekend?

My childhood friend is coming up this weekend. We are going to load up all of our collective children and head out for a visit to my dad and stepmom’s farm. There’s going to be fishing, playing, animals, a shrimp boil, and overall a bunch of running around like crazy people who are excited to start summer off.

5) Did you miss this post?

I’m Glad we Chose to Hold Him Back. Who else has been through having to make this decision? How did you handle it?

6) What did my kids create?

The hubs and I are have been back and forth on if we are going to get our above ground pool ready another year or tear it down. In the meantime, the kids have an inflatable pool at the bottom of their slide. It’s kept them busy so far.


Thanks for reading. How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?

  1. sounds like life is busy, but you are starting your summer and hopefully this means things are also slowing down a bit.


  2. We’re still a few weeks away from school being done but the excitement is palpable!

    I am glad you reposted the school defer decision here, easier to reply. We went through this with our oldest (end of May birthday), that he would either be really young or really old for his grade. Once we decided, we’ve never regretted it. Rather than things always being hard, they’re mostly easy. Including the social stuff. He actually hangs with older guys now, and honestly after HS it doesn’t matter. Everybody just blends together. Believe in your instincts, you are wise and strong.


  3. Congrats to your sister on the new baby & to your niece & nephew who just graduated! The slide into the pool looks like such a blast! & Whiskey Cake sounds awesome. Love that they use as many local ingredients as possible. 🙂
