My husband had to go back to the office this week, but did work from home on Wednesday so this first week back to summer kinda normal, was interesting. I am so sad that we can't do most of what we'd do in a normal summer to break up the day and be exciting. But we are making do. I have the 9 year old signed up for summer enrichment through her school for the month of July so there is SOMETHING to do. We are trying to do daily walks. This week she had an eye appointment and I had a dentist appointment so those things broke up the days.
My favorite pictures from the week:
this was actually enjoyed on the 5th of July but I went for a red/white/blue theme for a snack/lunch
Our 'Blue America' drinks we made up for the 4th in the backyard
I made this bean dip for our 4th in the backyard
I made this pudding pie for our 4th in our backyard
The high of my week was the 9 month old said mama! And gave me snuggles. It was adorable. When I texted my husband he said .. "now let me go pull on the curtains.." which is so true. Children give love and then go and do insanely infuriating things. :)
The low of my week was seeing ridiculous photos of how people spent 4th of July with a crap ton of people not social distancing and numbers going up and wondering how the heck school can resume.
Meal plan for the week was
Monday - Brisket Nachos
Tuesday - Brisket Tacos
Wednesday - beef stir fry, made with veggies from our garden!
Thursday - Flatbread Pizza, one pepperoni/onion/ yellow peppers and one Pesto/Mozzarella,Tomato
Friday - a local restaurant take out
The best money I spent was on not sure

What I’m watching the last season of Criminal Minds
