Week in Review: List Style

drinking: (almost) black coffee and enjoying it

just finished reading: Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne

just started reading: The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty

listening to: Yann Tiersen radio on Pandora

Best homeschool moment this week: creating a working model of a Roman aqueduct

worst mom/homeschool moment this week: yelling at my kids over repeatedly spilling the water we were using to demonstrate our aqueduct. STOP POURING! STOP! STOP! MOVE MY PHONE! GET A PAPER TOWEL! GET A BIGGER PAPER TOWEL! GIVE ME THE PAPER TOWEL! GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN! Not one of my finer moments.

best mom moment: when the kids spilled approximately 2,000 of our 22,000 Perler beads on the floor of the playroom. (Spilling is a recurring theme in my life.) I calmly told them they couldn't come out until they were all picked up. It took them an hour and forty-five minutes. I watched 3 episodes of Gilmore Girls.

looking forward to: KidStuf Encore with the family tonight and RE/PROM date night on Saturday

Tell me- what are you drinking? Reading? Listening to? How was your week and what are you looking forward to this weekend?

P.S. Are you following me on Instagram? If not, I'd love to invite you to! 


  1. Love this list.. it's fabulous! You are so winning with that best mom moment. Watching Glimore Girls while they cleaned... perfection! Here's mine...
    drinking - black coffee! this was my take away after I did Whole 30 in January. No more creamer for me!
    reading - just finished Some Girls and The Life I Always Wanted - both by Jillian Lauren..crazy memoirs!
    listening to - Vertical Church Band.. love them!
    looking forward to - hosting my first dinner club this weekend. (you not being here for it...saddest moment)

    1. Never heard of either of those books - gonna put them on my list now! I've set a goal to read 50 books this year. And I am trying so hard to get to drinking my coffee black! I'm using half a sweetener now but no creamer. We're such grown-ups!

  2. Coffee with almond milk. No sweetener. Only adds about 2 calories! Just read Routines, Rhythms and Schedules by Rachel Norman and Laura Tamm. Finally have my three kids on a schedule that works for us while homeschooling a kindergarten, doing preschool with our two-year-old and nursing an infant!

  3. Drinking Costco Columbia in my mug this am, currently reading my BSF homework, listening to my kids play- but usually Matt Maher's Saints and Sinners, best mom moment this week-working out in the yard with Grant and we both loved it, looking forward to an epic mountain bike ride soon. Maybe today.

  4. Drinking water, just finished reading Fall of Marigolds and just started War Brides. Best mom moment--spending my day off with all 8 grands and my daughters, looking forward to a weekend with my honey, and listening to HGTV and the quiet fire.
