Week in Review (5/13-5/18)

What a week!! I gave the blog a new little look in case you haven’t noticed, and I made some yummy food! :)

Sunday I went a little out of the order that I usually do things around here, I posted a special post for Mother’s Day! I love my mom SO much, so I thought she deserved her very own post. I also shared with you guys a yummy recipe for chocolate pound cake, that is super chocolatey and rich :)

Monday

Tuesday I shared with you guys how to make homemade peanut butter! I made dry roasted honey peanut butter, but the recipe is so adaptable that you can make pretty much any kind of peanut butter you can think of. So many possibilities for mix-ins, like oreos or chocolate chips for a sweet twist! I also  had my first playoff game for soccer. As luck would have it, lightning started coming out 5 minutes into the second half and the score was 0-0, so we had to stop the game and wait for a while to see if the lightning would stop. Of course the lightning never stopped, so we decided to make up the rest of the game (35 minutes) the next day and….

Wednesday to continue from Tuesday, we finished the rest of the 35 minutes in our game (after driving 45 minutes just to get TO the game), and we won 3-0! I scored, too!! :) It would have been nice if we could have just done that on Tuesday so we wouldn’t have had to come back to finish the rest of the game, but a win is a win so I was pretty happy that we would continue our playoff journey to Friday’s game against the number 1 team in the state.

Thursday I talked about how to tell when a goldfish is pregnant, you never know when that information will come in handy!!  I also shared with you guys a recipe for taco seasoning. Perfect for adding some flavor to chicken, beef, or oven fries! Another exciting thing that happened Thursday was that my sister came home from Spain!! So nice to finally have her back :)

Friday I had my next playoff game. It was for the regional finals, we ended up losing after a tough game. I’m really proud of our team for the way we put our hearts into that game and left everything on the field. We lost to the number one team in the state and they are ranked 3rd nationally. We lost 3-1 with them scoring their 3rd goal in the last two minutes. It wasn’t ideal that we lost, but if we were to lose to someone, that team and game were an alright way to finish the season. It sure is going to be weird going from playing with and seeing these girls on my team everyday to hardly seeing them at all. I loved our team this year, and am so proud that we accomplished way more than anybody ever expected us to!
