Jenn's week:
I am still going slow on the reading. I can't focus at home for some odd reason. I hope to get some finished tonight that I have half done. I did manage a few audios. Not as much as I like. Maybe this week will pick up. 

Had some fun with shopping this week. Got a couple of cool puzzles, some books, some decor for the house, and I had a shopping day with Finn. We got him a build a bear dinosaur, some clothes, some really cool dc converse, and some books of course. Lots of shopping this weekend. That is about it.  Oh and I finally saw Avengers: Infinity War... I will say I have never felt so defeated as I left a theater.

Ash's week:

I worked a lot this week. Did lots of blog posts for the future. Got quite a bit of reading done.

We made almost $200 on selling stuff from in our garage. 

John and I went on a date on Sunday. Just went to get food and play some board games.

Then we played even more board games when we got home! 

We made some pretty good dinners too. Grilled turkey burger lettuce wraps with baked zucchini fries. Beef zucchini boats. slow cooker chicken fajitas. 

And in case y'all were wondering the games shown are Go Nuts for Donuts and Ninja Camp.

  1. Ash - That's awesome that you were able to clean out your garage AND make $200. Win!
    Jenn - were you in one of those insane Build-a-Bear lines on that promo day? It was a great deal. I even know a few people, who were able to make a doll before they shut down the lines.

    1. Yepp! And it's all going into savings.

      Luckily Jenn took Finn on Saturday, but she said she was still in line for an hour.

  2. Jenn - I wasn't too happy after Avengers either--although it was a good movie. I hope you are able to find your focus to read again soon. I have had so much going on . . . This month I am doing better than last only because I've read a few short reads.

    Ash - Yay for getting ahead on blog posts! I need to find time to do that. I was thinking we need to re-institute our family game night. We have a few board games we never seem to play nowadays.

    I hope you both have a great week!

    1. Sadly I get more blogging done than reading done. I can blog at work a lot easier than read at work.

      We try to have family game nights every week or so. And then once or twice a month we have an actual game night.

  3. Both of you had some fun times this week. Shopping, movies, books food and games. Sounds good to me!

  4. I have so much Riordan I need to read. :) And avengers- yeah. that ending... sigh. Is it time for 4 yet??

    Don't You Cry and #murdertrending look like the bomb.
