Friday Favorites: June 14

Happy Flag Day! This week’s favorites have largely come from our Summer Bucket List Challenge. So far we have completed 15 items – and most of them were even fun. We had a streak of poor sportsmanship during a game. It was the Hunger Games board game, so maybe it’s hard to be a good sport when your playing a game about bumping off the competition.bucket list favorites

  • We attempted to attend the MCC Planetarium Night, but we arrived to late to get tickets. No matter, we watched a show about Pluto (poor demoted planet), looked at Saturn through a telescope and shot film canister rockets.
  • We had our family book club for Deadweather and Sunrise.
  • We tried frying an egg on the sidewalk, but it was too cold. (There’s something you don’t hear about an Arizona summer day very often!) We’ll have to try again when it hits 115.
  • We made Father’s Day cards.
  • Our ice cream social was a delicious success! There’s even some ice cream left over to make milkshakes; a list item for another day.
  • Not a summer bucket list item, but we had another meeting planning the ANWA Writer’s Conference. It’s going to be so cool!

Friday Favorites: May 31

I’m not exactly sure where May went, but I’m happy to share my favorites from the week before moving on to June! We had a good week, full of lots of good things.

  • We had a blast a Flipside. Next time will be even better if we remember to wear closed toe shoes.

  • After we emptied our play cards at Flipside, we headed to the mall and found some killer deals at Payless Shoes.
  • We finished off the evening by redeeming a ColdStone gift card from 2011. We’re quick like that!
  • The WordPress 10 year anniversary celebration! I’m kind of nerdy like that – and I want to learn more to make my blog better for you.
  • A fitness themed Pack Meeting. I was in charge of a relay race with spoons and tennis balls. I also got to show off my mad juggling skills.
  • I found some great continuing education classes through the local library. The¬†$120 Quick Books class I was looking at through the local college was free! And there were tons to choose from.
  • One of my kiddos initiated a cleaning session!
  • This week I was blessed to participate in a soldier’s homecoming. They always make me cry. I’m so grateful for their sacrifice and that of their families. Some hadn’t seen each other for almost a year. I’m so glad they are home safely.
  • We filled our summer bucket list and even completed our first activity.

What are the highlights from your week?

Friday Favorites: May 24

Favorite restuarant

I’m back once again with Friday Favorites! It’s been a fun, but busy week (or 8).

  • Lunch at one of my favorite¬†restaurants with a couple of friends!
  • We’ve had fun with the end of school year events. Another mom said those things make May as busy as December! We’ve had a band concert, a choir concert, awards dinners and ceremonies, an art show and some other stuff. That didn’t happen all this week, but all this month. It’s good to see my kiddos involved, it just makes for a crazy month.
  • We got a new board game based off the Hunger Games. It was pretty fun once we figured out the rules.
  • I finally did some writing! I have a Spring into Action article over at Today’s Mama.
  • I also added over 250 words to my book.
  • I even did a little editing.
  • Book club is always fun!
  • We started brain storming for this year’s summer bucket list. The Happy Family Movement is having a Summer Bucket List Challenge to inspire to families to build great memories together this summer. After last year’s fiasco, I’m looking forward to some encouragement for a better summer.

What did you do this week that made your Friday Favorites list?
