Hellooooooo weekend!

Whew is it good to be on the other side of this week; it has totally kicked my butt. I basically feel like I survived this week versus accomplished much of anything – lots of run, run, running and putting out fires.

We had music class… a 4-hour allergist appointment… a very dire poop situation that required an immediate bath 5 minutes before we needed to walk out the door to said appointment (and I managed to only be 3 minutes late!)… a pediatrician checkup… our air conditioner broke on the hottest day of the year (but thanks to amazing service was fixed within 2 hours of placing a phone call to the AC repair folks!)… car inspection and oil change… two swim lessons… had someone here to restring our (broken) blinds in the family room… and three (count ’em, THREE) naps that Joseph decided he just wasn’t going to take this week. Phew!

I am completely and totally behind on every aspect of life, so I’m playing catchup this weekend. What are your plans?!

As always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week, the most shared recipes, my Sunday dinner menu, and recipes I’ve bookmarked from other blogs. Enjoy!
