It has been a great week! My 6 year old and I survived our first week alone, and it went well! I actually cooked every night (I was worried about cooking for just the 2 of us), and we have had fun. I am the one that is usually short on patience in our house, but that didn’t happen this week. We even went to a neighbors house and played and had a fire Friday night. Now we will just see how the weekend goes. I have a couple playdates lined up, and we have to get the house clean for a showing on Sunday, so I think it will be busy.
The blog has been on fire this week (relatively speaking for me), which is very exciting! Don’t forget to check out the Foodbuzz awards and vote for your favorites. Icon is to your right. I am nominated for Best New Blog, hint hint 🙂
Here is what I was up to this week:
