Week in Review: August 31 – September 6

Not going to lie, I don’t have tons to share from this week.  It was one of those hair-pulling, just-grit-your-teeth-and-get-through-it kind of weeks, at least school-wise.  Everything is a struggle right now for some reason, but I’m optimistic about the coming week.  I’m not even sure why, but I just feel like it’ll be better.

Let’s see – the girls and I finally, FINALLY planted out fairy garden.  It’s been on the to-do list forever, but I was afraid if we did it before our big trip it would die in our absence.  No photos yet, since there’s nothing growing at this point.  We’ll be sure to share later, failure or success.

I found this adorable little work of art on our chalkboard door this week and thought it would be fun to share. This kid kills me, seriously. She’s always thinking.


I meant to share a video of some of their memorization, but never got around to it, so maybe next week.

Our beloved Hannah is leaving next week for Honduras, so we had a girls day out.  We went to an awesomely huge discount jewelry/purse/girly-stuff store and had an amazing Mediterranean lunch.  It was fun and the perfect solution to soothe the wounds of the week. (A little melodramatic?  Maybe.)  Here’s my sole photo of the day, not counting those I snapped of products that I decided I could probably make myself and save the $30 price tag.

Pretty awesome, right?  I wore the horse head, but I don’t have a photo of that.  Bummer.

I feel like I could hang a ton of these up in my house and they would make me happy…not sure how Jerm would feel about them, though.

Your turn.  Anything fun or exciting happen this week?

Is anyone else already feeling the crazy due to school or am I alone in this boat?

  1. who is this Hannah and why haven’t I met her? Anyone brave enough to try on a rooster head has GOT to be fun.
    We got the school books in yesterday. I’m not gonna lie, I was dreading starting TODAY but I got a little bit of grace from the papa so we’re going to start Monday. I’m going nuts with party details and cleaning, plus I woke up this morning with a killer sore throat……it’s so ugly I’m even debating cancelling my lessons this morning, just so I don’t have to talk to anyone.
