Weekly Wrap Up | Las Vegas Edition

It’s been quite a while since I’ve participated in a weekly wrap up. So I figured it was high time. However when I sat down to write, everything was a blur. Please tell me I’m not the only person who has to check out their Instagram feed to remember what we did this week?? Please.


Maybe the reason I don’t remember much is because the week started out busy. Then Amelie got sick.  Also, hubby and our eldest were away on a business trip so I was shorthanded. Yeah, that’s why everything is a blur…

Monday was my run-around-like-crazy day. I wanted to get Shane some new shoes for his trip. So I decided to drive into the closest “big town” for a decent shoe shop.  That turned into a day of getting the shoes, then walking the mall and spending more money I shouldn’t have spent. From there we made a quick stop at PetSmart because, oh yeah, we needed crickets for the Fire Belly Toads. Of course right next to PetSmart is an Ulta shop.  I had never been to Ulta so it seemed like a good time to stop in.  Of course, by this time the kids were starving so I *had* to take them to Burger King.

I didn’t get anything. I waited to grab a salad at home. Aren’t you proud of me?  I’ve lost over 40lbs and I fit into skinny jeans last week, so sister, I ain’t going back!

On Tuesday Shane left bright and early to head to Las Vegas with our eldest, Fox. Yeah Vegas. While I was home with a sick toddler. Whatever. I asked Shane to send me photos of everything.  And slefies! Don’t forget the selfies and usies! But, Shane isn’t a fan of taking obvious selfies in public and Fox despises that sort of thing. So I have some hilarious “sneaky selfies” from their travels.  I love it!

And if you tell Fox about this photo I’ll kill you dead!

Most of Tuesday and Wednesday were spent wrangling a poor, sick, 2 year old with explosive diarrhea.  It wasn’t fun. For anyone. We mostly cut our losses and spent lots of time cuddling on the couch, watching her favorite shows. And doing laundry. Lots of laundry.

But we got through it.  And if you’re gonna be sick.  At least you can still be cute, right? By Thursday Amelie was starting to feel better so we began to venture outside, much to Bram’s delight.  The weather here has been gorgeous and I love watching him climb trees and play in the creek.  We spent most of the evenings swinging on the swing set.  It was lovely.

Let’s see what else? Oh! During the wee hours of the morning I watched a really, really wonderful movie called You’re Not You. I wrote a bit about it on my Netflix for Moms post. Have you seen it? It is such a touching, poignant movie. I highly recommend it. It’s about the slow decline of a woman with ALS and the friendship she develops with her caretaker, but really, it’s about sooooo much more!

This week I was also able to share about a new phonics-based reading curriculum I absolutely love. Bram loves it too which is a huge bonus. It has officially become our new reading curriculum. Check out my review for First Start Reading from Memoria Press.

Oh, and last but not least, Bram decided to cut his hair. Because, you know, it looks so cool this way 🙂

 That’s it! Those are the highlights of this week. By the time this publishes Shane and Fox will be home from Las Vegas and we’ll be enjoying a nice, relaxing, family weekend.  I hope you enjoy yours as well.

*Update – I just realized Shane and Fox didn’t leave for Vegas until Wednesday morning. Which means my errand day was Tuesday. So, I really have no idea what I did on Monday. Like I said, it’s all a blur. Oy.
