Week in Review

Week in Review 8/23/19

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?

Earlywine Family Aquatic Center. It is where we had the kids’ joint birthday party. After some research, this seems to be the place for the most affordable water party. We had babies to adults and all ages in between. Everyone had a great time. If the kids wanted to, I would have another party there in a heartbeat.

2) What post should you check out?

We’ve been collaborating with Fox 25 creating a handful of Back to School segments. This was a lot of fun, and we appreciate the opportunity.

I was not prepared last year when my son started having homework in Kindergarten. If you have a little space or a free drawer, a DIY Homework Station can save you time and stress.


Snacks are serious kid business, and snack plates make the best after school snacks.

3) What’s been going on this week?

The surprise from last weekend was a 70th birthday party for my extremely deserving stepmom. Since it was also the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the party was 60s themed. We also successfully made it through the first full week of school. So far, so good!

4) What’s going on this weekend?

We’ve already had her birthday party, but Saturday is my daughter’s actual birthday. We are letting her pick what we do together as a family to celebrate. She’s chosen to go see The Lion King and is still mulling over where she would like her birthday meal to be.

5) Did you miss this post?

Easy Homemade Chili. I know it’s still blazing hot out guys. I’m jonesing for fall though and bet you are too. So make this now or pin it for later. Either way, keep this chili recipe. It’s easy, delicious, and all homemade.


6) What did my kids create?

Mega World. My son is super into the Mega Man video games right now. So he’s drafted a plan for a Mega Man theme park, Mega World. It’s going to be in Florida.


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

  1. I love the Woodstock theme! I start my new job on September 3rd! I’m grateful to be able to fly to Florida next week to see my 93-year-old Grandpa and my Auntie Marn, who lives in Wisconsin. I haven’t been this excited about a mini-vacation in quite a while.
