Weekly Wrap Up: January 25-29

By 8:00 AM

I ended up having Monday off this week also due to the snow and ice we got last weekend! The kids had a half day Thursday and then today was Homecoming! So all in all, it was a pretty easy week!

Thanks to Teresa's Monday Must Listen, I am now officially addicted to Hamilton the musical. As in I drove 35 minutes to buy the soundtrack from Best Buy kind of obsessed. It has been the only thing I've listened to in days. And while I was trying to get kids to buy pizza today I told them we needed their Alexander Hamiltons. Please send help. Not really. I love it.

The end of the month is upon us tomorrow! As of when I was writing this post (yesterday), I had two books to finish to complete all my challenges for the month. I hope I can do it!

Monday:                      The Monday Musts: The Song of Achilles, Chris Stapleton, and SNOW!

Tuesday:                      Tasty Tuesday: Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

Wednesday:               W...W...W...Wednesday: The Distance from A to Z, Boiling Point, The Unexpected Everything
                                            REVIEW: Boiling Point by Tessa Bailey (3 stars)

Thursday:                    REVIEW: The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller (5 stars)

Friday:                            REVIEW: The Distance from A to Z by Natalie Blitt (3.5 stars)
