Week In Review: Like a Prayer

Monday and Tuesday were quiet days so I took that time to clean the house and make cookies, grocery shop, and cut up fruit and veggies for the week. We got a bit silly on Tuesday night in preparation for Woozy Wednesday’s post but Andrew ended up going to bed with a headache at 9:30. But not before he chit-chatted on the phone with a telemarketer and posted random things on Facebook:


Katie was really super sick with a fever and a sore throat on Wednesday and Thursday, so she and Callum hung out together on the couch and watched Christmas movies while I did some writing and cleaning. When Callum saw the Grinch come on the screen, he called him “Mom.” Not far off, kid. Nor far off. Especially first thing in the morning before my coffee.


Thursday night was Jake’s guitar concert. It’s one of my most favourite things to do, ever. And? I missed it by an hour. I thought it was at 7 but it was at 6. I was SO sad. So I took him and his girlfriend out for dessert instead, and it all really worked out. We had epic conversations. Teenagers are traumatizing, but inspiring all at the same time.


On Friday we got our flu shots, then got a babysitter for Callum and then Andrew and I took his parents out on a double date to see Spectre (yes, again) in the VIP cinema. David and Kathleen had never been to a theatre like that and we loved watching them have so much fun. It’s always great to be with those two lovebirds.


We had to do this pose. It was necessary.


Saturday was filled to the brim with soccer, and Callum twinsied it up with his daddy, as usual. They both habitually stick their right leg out while they stand there, sipping their drink. It’s unreal.


Lots of dancing in the kitchen while Andrew ran his 17 mile long run. Callum and I are totally into reggae right now.


Then in case you missed it, Andrew did a dance of his own.

On Sunday, we both did our runs (both mileage and post hot wing stomach revolt) and then went back out to the soccer field to watch Ethan play. Callum enjoyed our coffee even more than we did (don’t worry, it’s empty!).



And now it’s Sunday night, and Andrew is bringing home teriyaki and hot wings for dinner.

Now that I’m done writing this post, I’m kind of impressed with how much stuff we really have to do all in one week. I’m really glad Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets forced me to do this, otherwise I just wouldn’t feel as proud of myself as I do right now. Although, I am a bit tipsy, so self reflection may be a bit convoluted.

I love you.

    I love you too. Amen.

    This is absolutely why I do this link up. It makes me feel better about myself and who doesn’t like tooting their own horn…in more ways than one.

    Reggae is fantastic kitchen dance party music. I can get down with that.

    Also, that Bond pose. You guys totally nailed it.

    P.S. I hope Katie is all recovered now.

      Thanks, Meghan. Yeah, Katie is ship shape. It’s cold and flu season so everyone has a little of something going on but hey, we’ll get through it.

    I think you have inspired me to do my own week in review one of these days! It will not be as jam packed as yours though. It will be more like: ran, went to work, did a puzzle… 5 days in a row hahaha. I am sure I could make it interesting! I do have fun school stories but I am probably not allowed to share all of them! 🙂

      Sigh… I know. I can’t even imagine looking like a movie star. It would be so fun to wake up every morning and look in the mirror. I’d be all, holy shit! Is that Julia Roberts? Oh wait, no it’s just me.

      I’d have to convince Wendy to sign a waver or something but I know once she did, she would be so pleased to watch how ridiculous we are over here. I think we’d probably get sued though.

    You sure did have a busy week! And I second Susie’s suggestion. I need to see you on my TV once a week!

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com November 24, 2015, 8:02 am

      That WOULD be pretty entertaining, I have to say. It is NOT BORING around here.

    Your comment on Andrew’s Facebook status cracked me up. Callum is just too adorable and I can’t handle how cute he is pretending to drink coffee.

    • suzy.suzyheather@gmail.com November 24, 2015, 8:01 am

      He’s pretty funny eh? Whenever we drink anything, we put it up high so he can’t reach it. We even do that when he’s not around, just out of habit. We’ll be sitting on the couch and have to get up and walk over to the fireplace mantle to take a sip, and then go sit back down. Ha ha!

  • Maddie @ Dixie Runs November 24, 2015, 8:37 am

    Oh my gosh that picture of you and Andrew with the James Bond cutout…. He could seriously be his stunt double!!

  • Heather@hungryforbalance November 24, 2015, 11:58 am

    A-fucking Men! I think my favorite part of this whole post is the reggae dancing. Or the movie star poses. Or the toddler drinking ‘coffee’. Oh, hell, I love it all.
    Especially you!

    Seriously your husband look like Daniel Craig!
