This week was all weird due to the holiday on Wednesday. It’s felt like the weekend all week long! It was an eventful week with a memorable visit to the Lululemon store, a second attempt to make decent looking star cookies and all the Fourth of July festivities happening. I also found time to clean my son’s room, which lasted all of five minutes and I got to introduce him to the wonders of the ice cream truck.
Week in review July 1 – July 8
The Cookie Do-Over – Keelan is always asking for “star cookies” since he saw them on a Pillsbury box, so we gave them a second try. Check out our impressively bad first attempt here: Watch out Betty Crocker
This time we used a rolling pin, cookie cutter and followed the directions on a package of Miss Jones Sugar Cookies. Still not perfect, but way better looking! And great taste which is the most important part.
Happy 4th of July! – Hope you all had a happy 4th! We enjoyed hanging with friends and watching fireworks two nights in a row. K loves fireworks, but I’m not surprised because it’s something exploding and bursting into flames. The only thing that could make it better is if it were car shaped.
Lululemon to the Rescue – My visit to Lululemon on Monday was an amazing start to the week. If you missed that story, click here check out all the details of how they handled a blog post with just a little complaint, and made me their newest fan.
I’m Just Going to Put This Here –
You know what that is? It’s the floor. I took a photo to prove it does exist 😂
It’s already covered up again with toys, clothes and kid stuff, but for one shining moment the kid’s room was actually clean.
IIIIIIccccce Creeeeeeaaaam – I’ll end this week’s round-up with another childhood throwback – a visit to the ice cream truck! I have no idea how long it’s been since I chased down an ice cream truck, but we were at the park and I heard the music in the distance, and K asked, “What’s that sound?”
I remembered how excited I’d be when I heard it, running home to beg for quarters from my mom so I could get a rocket pop or an ice cream sandwich, so I decided to let him in on the secret and told him about the ice cream truck. This was the most exciting thing he’d heard all day and immediately begged to go hunt down this magical truck.
I discovered the price has gone up since my youth and that 50 cent ice cream is now $3.50 (gee I feel old, lol) but at least now they take credit cards! So after choosing his frozen treat from the pics on the side of the truck, he was the proud owner of a Spider-Man ice cream bar. It was the messiest thing ever but totally worth it!
Hope you all had a great week and are enjoying your summer! We are getting ready to leave for our summer vacation soon and I’m not sure about the Internet situation so blog posts may be scattered for the new few weeks. I’m trying to schedule some ahead of time though 🙂
