Ready, Set, Weekend

It’s finally Friday! If you ask me, it should have been Friday three days ago. This may have seemed like the slowest week ever, but thankfully, there was still plenty to smile about.

Among them, Bean achieved another award at school. As of yesterday, he has read a total of 205 books in just 49 school days, more than double the original goal in less than half the time his classmates had. I am incredibly proud of him and tickled that he is already talking about reading 300 books. He asked for a chocolate chip cookie as a reward. Not sure where to find one worthy of the occasion in our neighborhood, I decided to stop by a store that had caught my eye a few times: Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

I had never heard of the chain before, but based on the display of decadent chocolates, I’ve decided that it is in my best interests to get to know them better.

Tonight, the celebrations continue with a family video game night. I’m devoting the rest of the weekend to preparing for my sister and brother-in-laws’ week and a half long visit. If I’m honest, I’m not exactly thrilled about hosting guests for that long, but those two are so special to me and Bean. I will always be grateful to them for taking care of Bean, especially while I was in grad school and working full-time. So if it means sitting back while they take care of us for a week and a half, I most gladly will.

  1. Adorable and congrats on the award! I have to stay away from Rocky Mountain; too many great treats there. But I’m glad he had his for a job well done!

    1. Thank you! He forgot all about wanting a cookie when we walked in. His eyes are much bigger than his stomach, ha ha!

  2. That chocolate factory looks amazing! Would love to check it out if it was here lol. I agree with you this week has felt so long for some reason

  3. This weekend is not going to be all that fun. My family and I just recently moved into our first house so we still have a ton of unpacking to do unfortunately. But we do get to hang the decorations which I actually enjoy doing so, that’s what I’m doing this weekend. Next weekend we are having a housewarming party/ game night so that should be fun.

    1. I’m keeping an eye out for “everything must go” sales at Toys R Us. I plan to stock up on board games!

  4. Ohh my, looks so yummy! Wish you and your family a great weekend.

    1. Thanks! Same to you!

  5. Wow! I visit Charlotte almost every other weekend and I need to visit this place! This is awesome!
