A Peek at My Week

I’m on vacation this week. My husband, son Brock and I have been visiting my parents and today we are heading to Branson, where we plan to enjoy the Christmas lights and explore eateries and shows that we’ve never encountered before.

While we are enjoying this break from our normal schedules, I do not have a typical “Peek at My Week” post to share with you. However, I will tell you a few things.

  1. I organized… the things we needed for our trip and worked hard to get everything packed into the trunk of my Private Jet. It was kind of like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. Everything had to be placed just right to get it to fit.

  1. I cooked… very little. Before our trip we needed to use up all the leftovers in the refrigerator. Oh, and fun! We went to Sweet Tomatoes on Thursday. We haven’t been there in over 2 ½ years, so that was great fun!

  1. I bought… Brock some plain tee shirts. That’s what he sleeps in at night….. but silly me! I forgot to pack any for the trip. So the first day we had to stop at Wal-Mart and buy him a few. Otherwise, he would have refused to go to bed.

  1. I’m enjoying… new experiences. One thing I got to do was ride in the Corvair that my dad has been restoring for the past couple of years. It’s mostly finished now. The last time I visited, it was still without seats. It was fun taking that ride with my dad. I didn't think to take a picture of my dad and the Corvair, but here's a picture of my parents. I took it at their favorite restaurant, where we ate on Saturday before leaving them. It's called Best Burrito and the food truly is delicious!

  1. This weekend I’m… excited that we got to go to the Osceola Cheese Factory. My grandparents lived in Osceola and I have fond memories of the Cheese Factory dating back to my childhood days. It was pretty plain then, but now is quite the tourist spot. But it’s still fun!

  1. I’m blessed… to have some time away with my two guys.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you’ll come back Tuesday, when I’ll have a challenge to tell you about and a card to show you, too.
