Weekly Recap


Here's another Weekly Recap for you. But first, I'm not 100% sure I like the title "weekly recap." It just seems so generic and blah. I'll play around with it and hopefully come up with something a little more bright and cheery - or you can make suggestions in the comments too! So let's get into what I got into!


There's a running joke in my family that I haven't watched anything! Like classic or popular movies. For instance, I hadn't watched the Disney cartoon, 'Brave' until 2 weeks ago. I haven't seen any Star Wars movies. People legit screamed when I said I haven't watched 'The Color Purple;' not the new one o, the old one starring Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah from 1982!!! 

Anyway, I righted one wrong this week and finally sat down to watch 'Inside Out.' Coco and I agreed that we'd like to have Movie Nights at home on Fridays. I thought it was a sweet and interesting movie.

I also watched the short film "Ugo" that followed our brother Giannis Ugo Antetokoumpo on his first trip to Nigeria. It was nice learning a little bit more about him and seeing some familiar sights. 


We are experiencing what I would say is a brutally cold winter. We dipped down to 10F a couple of times this week. To my friends up north, SHHHHHHHH! I know y'all are suffering with your -40 weather. Anyway, because of the cold weather and threat of a wintry mix, schools were closed for a day. I didn't complain because I didn't want to have to drive out in the cold, and thankfully I'm privileged to have a job where I can work from home if need be. Coco had just come back from her Grandma-Granddaughter trip and was excited to have an extra day off - she kept me laughing the whole entire day! She dressed up in one of my wigs, a hat, a pair of my heels, and decided she was a Fancy Lady! 


I'm back to recording for the Mommy Oyoyo Podcast and I had a fun time this week recording episode 79 - Things I Miss About Life Before Kids/Motherhood. I have to say, my podcast is a really good one. It might not all the bells and whistles and fancy sounds, but the content is great and you should DEFINITELY listen! Here's the link to listen on Apple and another for Spotify


Last weekend I met up with a few ladies for a vision board party. I liked how intimate the setting was and without getting into the details very deeply, I shared some of it on Youtube. 

Side note: in addition to bringing back this blog to a regular cadence, I also want to resurrect my Youtube channel even if it means posting videos that are less than 10 minutes long. PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL - I'd like to hit 1000 subscribers by the end of this year. 

P.S. Coco wants a Youtube channel of her own as well. I'm toying with the idea BUT will make it a private channel accessible to family and friends only. 

Well, that's about it for this past week in my life.
