My older boy turned 6 last Friday! He had been eagerly anticipating it all week and couldn’t wait to open all his presents and eat his cake. Of course we had to first get through our usual busy Friday with swim class in the morning, PM kindergarten, a science class after school and playtime in the playground after that. The birthday boy asked for burgers for his birthday meal – specifically In N Out!
He had also asked for a chocolate strawberry cake, so I had been looking around for a good recipe. Finally I combined two I found online. See my Weekend Cooking post for details!

The 3yo (soon to be 4!) couldn’t wait to start reading this book.
Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney
Mad Men Season 7
Now that I’ve gotten to season 7 I’ve slowed down… I don’t want it to end! That sounds so silly…
Bossypants – Tina Fey
The last audiobook I listened to was Ann Patchett’s This is the Story of a Happy Marriage and I listened to it at 1.25x which was just right for me. But man does Tina Fey talk fast. At 1.25x it feels like it’s 2x.

This is the Story of a Happy Marriage – Ann Patchett (Finally! I am so bad at audiobooks but I really enjoyed this collection)
The Woman Next Door – Yewande Omotoso (ADORED IT!)
Superman/Wonder Woman: Power Couple Charles Soule (Writer), Tony S. Daniels (Penciller), Paulo Siqueira (Penciller), Eddie Barrows (Penciller), Barry Kitson (Artist) (From the husband’s collection – I am not a fan of Superman but was attracted to the idea of the two of them being together!)
