What a Week

It's been a while since I've done a Week in Review post! I love doing them, since it's a great way for me to remember what I did throughout the week. I am surprised at how putting it together on a list makes me seem so much more productive sometimes! Not that I am not, but it just reminds me of what I DID do, rather than making me worry about what I did not.

Last Sunday, I went with a friend for a run and then brunch. The place we went to for brunch had really great food and bottomless mimosas, made with fresh fruit juice. The waiter comes around with a pitcher and in order to try the next kind (there were about 20) you have to down the one you have. Sure, the glasses are only 6 oz, but they add up!

 What started out as an innocent Sunday morning brunch....
See those teeny, tiny glasses? 

...ended up as Dance Party USA. 
Hey. There was Madonna.
And 2 Live Crew.

It rained a lot this week. 
View from the back porch.

The sun did peek out from time to time, enough so I could catch up on my
coffee drinking,
and sunshine loving.
That coffee cup holds about a third of the pot. 
I love it.

I also learned that "Cher" hair is back in style. 
Um, ladies, I have had that hair for the last 30 years. 
Well I guess you have to be "in style" once every 30 years.
Note the insert. 
It says "Don't go overboard.  Leave a little body. Poker straight hair is not always flattering"
Yeah. Like I said. 30 years.

I made a couple of care packages for my loved ones.

And this is why I believe in Karma...
The VERY SAME DAY...I received two blog prizes in the mail! 
A Nature Box that I won from Carrie
And Profoot insoles that I won from Marcia.

Heads up people. Do you love boxes?
Or organizing? 
Or organizing with boxes? 
Target special = $1 each! 

This weekend I went running, went grocery shopping and cooked up a storm.
Two kinds of chili.

And a pan of brownies. 
I did not eat this entire thing by myself. 
Only the entire edge part. 
The middle got cut out and made into...

These! Brownie Balls! 
Not quite the same as the cake pops I made last time, but close.

I had to try one. It was pretty darn good. Except that I really didn't need it. 
After I licked the batter spoon. 
And the bowl. 
And ate all the edges of the brownies. 
And all the leftover melting chocolates.
I feel sick. 

How was your week? Have you ever had bottomless mimosas? Be honest, how much of the brownie pan can you eat in one sitting?


  1. I had bottomless mimosas at a baby shower I went to in March (of course the mom-to-be did not indulge). I only had one because I had to study afterwards! They did not have so many flavors, but they were still great. That's the only way I enjoy Champagne - I can't drink it straight up!

    Looks like a great week! My week was decent. Felt kind of long and I was down for part of it as I am just really getting to the end of my rope with studying, but I had a really fun night night with friends and that really turned things around and put life in perspective!

    And I am not a sweets person, so I could maybe eat 2 brownies in one sitting! But I could probably eat at least 1/2 a jar of pickles. Or half a bag of salt & vinegar potato chips. ;)

  2. Yay that your Nature Box arrived. They seem like a great company. Love good care package karma.

    Bottomless mimosas sound awfully dangerous. So fun.

    Brownies: maybe 1 or 2 if I've also liked beaters and samples along the way. If no sampling, then probably a lot more. Those brownie pops looks yummy! Is that what you sent off in the care packages?

  3. Bottomless mimomas are dangerous! I always feel good about at least mixing a little juice into my champagne but it still ads up quickly for me!

  4. Sounds like a great week:) So fun to get packages in the mail! I could totally eat that entire pan of brownies no problem.

  5. I need to find a place with bottomless mimosas...YUM! It looks like you had a great week. Ditto to hiker mom...I'd probably lick the pan too! LOL

  6. Yes! I've got the same hair-- we can be in style together for a short while! I am so with you on the brownies... I love baking and taste testing the whole way, then eating what I can of the finished product, and but I hate the sick stomach feeling afterward. You'd think we'd learn!

  7. I could eat the pan of brownies!

    I had that hair in school and for a few yearss after but I like to change my hair too often.

    I bought a bunch of organizers this week too.. we are moving and so need to organize the new spaces. I love stuff like this.

  8. It's funny how much easier to see our progress when you look at it like that.

    We got a lot of rain this week, too. It was nice. I always look forward to the rain. Probably because I live in a place where we don't get too much of it.

  9. Looks like a great week and those brownies look so good!

  10. The last time I had a bottomless anything ... yeah, it's been a while since I cut ties with the Chinese buffet. ha. I used to work with a gal who described her ice cream eating habits as "hitting cardboard" ... as in, she'd eat from the container and eat so much that her spoon would hit the bottom. =)
