Week In Review – Almost 35

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!

Once again, it’s time for another week in review!  Can’t say much has changed this week, though.  We did, however, get some fresh air and accomplished a few things that really did need doing.  I treated myself to a little early birthday present as well.

  • My week started off with computer updates… lengthy computer updates.  It was also a week of Wonder Woman!

  • Enzo has been keeping up to date with what he’s been learning in school (which I love!)  We’re still working on remembering which way some numbers go, but he’s doing great.

  • The pets have all been rather snuggly/needy this weekend.  Almost every morning Uzi has wanted to climb up on my shoulders when I’m trying to get ready for work, Vega has followed me everywhere, and even Ziggy has been more clingy and talkative than usual.  Heck, even Bowser has been wanting to be out and held lately!

  • Got some housework done, despite everything being so hot and humid. I’m not a fan of doing housework when it’s sweltering.  Vega once again being the great helper that she is.

  • So glad we made the most of one really nice evening this week with a family walk.

  • This week was one with lots of interesting clothing choices for the kids. Haha!  My favorite was how we forgot picture day was on Thursday, however, and Enzo decorated himself in the car ride to school. Oh Boy.

  • My treat to myself was a nose piercing. I’ve thought of getting one for years and finally just went ahead and did it.

  • Phoebe and I did some shopping, the boys gamed and we watched football, and there you have it.

Happy Monday everyone!

Week In Review – Ren Fest, Books and Games, Oh My!

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!

It’s been an interesting week, and from the sound of things it has been that way for a lot of people.  I think an eclipse is like a full moon on steroids in that regard! Considering today is only getting weirder… I’m going to keep this short.

I was so stoked to get the Lego Disneyland Castle finished last Monday night.

We discovered that Enzo loves these sriracha chips from Trader Joe’s as much as I do.

Had a decent book haul!  I love, love sales and awesome pricing. Haha!

On Saturday, Kendra and I went to the Ren Fest, which was a blast!

We were up late Saturday night so Sunday was a very relaxed and laid back day until I suggested we go get some shopping done at Target, which turned into lunch because Josh hadn’t eaten anything and then we ended up at a massive candy store and spent a boatload of cash on a ridiculous amount of junk food… we never even made it to Target. I blame the eclipse entirely.

May the rest of the week be balanced… please??  Especially considering the house could have burnt down this morning, but we’ll talk about that another day.  Just… oy.

Week In Review – Date Night Edition

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!

I should really just title these Weekend in Review rather than Week In Review since rarely do I remember to keep track of what happens throughout the entire week.  So, a few tidbits.

Sleep continues to be a tricky devil and the beginning of the week was a frustrating one with Little Miss not wanting to cooperate.  I did, however, make both kids very happy by getting them some requested costumes that they should get a lot of use out of.

Phoebe wants to wear hers pretty much as soon as she wakes up in the morning.

We have over 1000 roaches residing in our house now.  I decided to bulk order to save some money, and now we just have to make sure we keep them alive for the next month or so.  Bowser is growing and ate 20 in one sitting the other day!

Josh also got this great picture of Bowser one day.  Haha!

The best part of the week was going out with Josh on Friday night to see Mystery Science Theater 3K Live, however.  It was a late night, so we stopped for drinks and something to munch before hand.

Josh even got me to try his oysters.  Normally they are just not something I do, but these were more cooked, smoked, and served on toast, so I did it.

It’s unlikely I’ll be slurping any out of the shell anytime soon, but these weren’t bad.

The show itself, was a lot of fun.  We had really good seats and Josh grabbed a couple of pictures before the actual movie started up.

Oh boy was it a crappy movie too. Hahaha!  It was a fantastic night and I’m glad we got to together. Josh is a massive MST3K fan, and I’ve seen a good many of the episodes thanks to him. :p

The rest of the weekend was pretty low-key.  I still feel like I could use an extra 10 hours of sleep, to be honest.  On that note, have a great Monday!

Week In Review – The It’s Hot Outside So Let’s Stay Inside Edition

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!

It was one of those weeks… nothing super exciting going on, and yet it seemed exhausting as well.  Phoebe has been having some rougher bedtimes as we attempt to get her to stay in her own room.  I was okay when she would wander into our room after we had all gone to sleep, but that time got earlier and earlier until some nights she’d go to sleep between 7:30-8:00 only to wake up at 9:00 or so and want to sleep in my bed.  We are trying to break that habit and it’s not easy.  I set up a cot in our room so if she does have trouble sleeping she can come sleep on that, but the novelty wore off and she doesn’t want to sleep on the cot anymore.  SIGH.

On Tuesday I got a hair trim, and while I wasn’t sure about the short bangs at first… I grew to like them.  Har har har.

On Thursday, Enzo randomly threw up at day care several times, so I went to pick him up early.  He recovered quickly and was perfectly fine, but still had to stay home with Josh on Friday. At least the cats were happy?

On Saturday a friend of Josh’s drove out (he was picking up an arcade game that Josh had found for him) and spent the night.  Enzo didn’t want to leave the house, but Phoebe was antsy, so we had a little Girl’s Day complete with annoying puppet shows that she insisted we watch and lots of sleepy critters at a very hot day at the zoo.

The best part was getting a glimpse of the new Mountain Lion cub, though!!!! He/She was passed out and part of me wondered how hard it would be to break into the enclosure and steal the little guy away.  I’m not crazy.

Can’t forget hanging out with my favorite lizard. 😉

On Sunday we started putting together Bowser’s new enclosure (still waiting on the new light strip) and then it was swim class time!  Afterwards we played in the pool with the kids and then let them play in the play area before heading out to dinner because I had zero desire to cook.

Phoebe ended up falling asleep in our bed while we were watching The Great British Baking Show.  Even though it completely negates what we’ve been trying to train her to do, we left her in there.  It’s a new week, right?  I’m sure tonight will go swimmingly with zero issues!

Happy Monday everyone!

Week In Review – So much beer

Happy Monday!

Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!

What a week!  Josh and I celebrated 7 years of marriage, so we made sure to celebrate throughout the past week, which included plenty of beer sampling and we went and saw Spiderman: Homecoming.  The Blood Orange Stout and Red Velvet Cake Stout that I had at the second brewery were amazing.

We had to include the kids in on some of the celebrating, so what better way to do that than to go get ice cream?  Not surprisingly the kids picked out the two most technicolor kinds there… Superman and Kryptonite.

Bowser is slowly getting bigger and his new home arrived, we just haven’t put it together yet.  Until we can add a few necessary items, we haven’t bothered setting it up.  He doesn’t seem to mind his current situation too much, though, especially once I added the two logs. That seems to have made a HUGE difference.  He loves snuggles and last night he didn’t want me to put him back in his tank, but he felt cold.

I also managed to take advantage of some nice weather during the week and went for a nice lunchtime walk.  It’s been fairly hot and humid, so the drop in heat was highly appreciated.

The highlight of the week was Saturday when we went to Walnut Grove, MN for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant (40th anniversary).  More on that later!

Yesterday we were exhausted after a long, late drive home, so we just tried to stay above water… just in time for swim lessons!

All in all, a good week.  Have a great Monday!
