I say it every year, but it's the truth, February flew by! January lasted 234234 years and then February zipped by.  I'm a bit sad because my parents escaped to Florida for the next 6 weeks and it has been bitter cold this week.  A huge snowstorm missed us completely, but it is just so darn cold.  We got teased last weekend when it was in the upper 40s and even hit 50.  We did enjoy it by going downtown and checking out a new to us lunch spot and stopping at a favorite bar to try some beers.

My favorite pictures from the week:

The eight year old did a biography report on Malala for her 3rd grade class earlier in the week and part of her presentation was dressing up as her person!

Enjoying the uppers 40s at the park on Sunday!

This is funny because she hates bottles.  She only drank a half ounce.

The high of my week was book club with my friends!  We read/discussed Saving CeeCee Honeycutt which was a great re-read for me!

The low of my week was my parents leaving, it being cold, and feeling like I'm stuck in my house because of illnesses and weather.

Meal plan for the week was

Monday - Wild Mushroom Beef Stew
Tuesday -  leftovers from Sunday (pork tenderloin)
Wednesday -  Chicken Sandwiches,  garlic/parm noodles, applesauce
Thursday -  I had book club and the rest had leftover beef stew
Friday - Roasted Tomato Soup and grilled cheese

The best money I spent was on hoping that the Lee jeans I bought on Amazon are the best things ever when they get here.  I currently own 8 pairs of jeans and none of them fit well.  One pair I can wear out of the house if needed but I don't really like them.  Another pair are so loose they will fall off.  And then the rest all too tight at the moment in various spots.  I live in workout pants or I have 2 pairs of black dressier pants from Maurices I wear.  I also have some dressier Apt. 9 pants from Kohls I wear when I need to be a grown up ha.

What I’m listening to I have been listening to the podcast Dolly Parton's America.  I really like it! Also, I just started listening to the podcast Friendlier and catching up on Family Secrets!

What I’m watching I watched a bunch of Mystery Woman movies I recorded this week as I was walking laps around my living room for my fitbit challenges! I also started watching When Hope Calls and When Calls the Heart.

What I’m reading: A Place Called Jubilee by Timothy J Garrett

My plans for the weekend include taking the 8 year old to get a hair cut and then nothing else is set in stone.  

What are you watching/reading/listening to?
