I’m a few days late, but the #PopeCup memes are still funny, right? This one was my fave:
I need a book recommendation. I haven’t been too enthused about anything I’ve read lately, with a few exceptions: the Hunger Games Trilogy (that I finished over a year ago), Something Other Than God, and, surprisingly, Confessions of a Prairie B!tch (a memoir by Alison Arngrim, “Nellie Olesen” from the Little House TV show). Yes, I do realize that those three books have very little in common. Suggestions? I want something that’s a fairly easy read, but with some meat to it (please no Nicholas Sparks…)

I ordered an ice cream maker; it should be here today (WOOT!) After seeing my post last week, my friend Dawn recommended the 2 quart Cuisinart, and my neighbor offered to loan me her 1.5 quart Cuisinart, so I jumped at the chance. We made mocha chip and cappuccino ice cream as well as peach fro-yo, and I caved and ordered the Cuisinart, as well as the Ben & Jerry’s book. Amazon Prime, my friends!

There is progress on the potty training front! I’m not ready to claim victory just yet, but Nathan actually asked to go potty when we were at the dentist’s office on Wednesday, and then subsequently peed in the potty when I took him to the bathroom. It’s a win, even if it’s a small one. Hope springs anew!

Did you watch the ESPYs this week? Yeah … me, neither. But I can’t let a great opportunity to mention Chris Davis and the Kick Six pass without a mention – Auburn won for Best Game of the Year and Chris Davis won Best Play of the Year! Auburn was actually nominated twice in the Best Play category – the Prayer at Jordan Hare also got a nod. Do you want to see the play again? Sure you do!
Sarah Kate starts another round of intensive therapy this week. We’re hoping for big things – strengthening, especially. School starts in a month and although she’s come a long way, she still has a ways to go to be walking completely independently.
Have a great weekend!
