Get your pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Let’s get listing:
I ruined my picture perfect Instagram feed. Truth be told, Ave is the one who besmirched it with her Monday morning mischief. Confession: I’m not a big fan of picture perfect anything. I prefer a dose of reality in my social media shenanigans.
(That is exactly what you think it is.)
I’m pretty sure Ave’s tomfoolery was payback for her four month checkup later that same day. She got a whole bunch of shots, shots, shots and was none too pleased. I told her when she’s of age, shots will become significantly more fun, although the hangover is about the same.
I housed and harbored my family on Wednesday so we could celebrate my older brother’s 40th birthday, and by older I mean decades of difference (cough, lies and deceit, cough).
We had lots of laughs, an ambush or two and a Taco Salad party. My mother’s gone vegan, so it was a good thing I had some recipes in my arsenal and a cabbage or two in my fridge. CSA produce to the rescue.
I thought about making my brother’s favorite dessert, lemon meringue pie, and opted to take him out for gelato instead. Not surprisingly, he had no complaints.
I watched all the gymnastics and then some. I puffy heart the Olympics.
I did lots of laundry, including all of our bedding. Clean sheets equals sweet, sweet bliss or at least a milk stain free night.
I went on a behind the scenes tour of Nature’s Bin. It was awesome.
I visited with an old coworker. It was so nice to catch up, and she was delighted to meet the baby.
Speaking of, we busted out Ave’s high chair for the first time. She alternated between blowing bubbles and studying us introspectively while we ate pizza. We also did lots of tummy time and play mat action.
I participated in the Love Your Spouse challenge on Facebook, which means I had to come up with witty commentary and funny pictures on a daily basis. For a non-romantic, this was no easy feat, and I might have missed a day in there. Oops.
I stuck the tiny amount we had leftover in a small casserole dish and smothered it with cheese, which I fully intend to bake later this week. I’m getting excited just thinking about it.
It’s your turn. I want to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week?
