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:
Last week was damn awesome, mainly because we had the good fortune to have Juli and her hubby Stefan stay with us for several days. They’re pretty much the perfect house guests, and as a result we had an easy-going, relaxed vibe all week with lots of laughter, toffee filled candies, coffee, and beer. You can’t beat that combo or the fact they left me on Saturday with delicious morsels of chocolaty goodness. I’d share some with you except I ate it all…five minutes after they left.
In addition to being wonderful company, they helped me cook dinner on multiple occasions or sometimes (cough, most times, cough) made the entire meal while I nursed or hung out with the baby. You gotta work for your food at my place. Either that or watch Ave.
(Blackberry Peach Grilled Goat Cheese Sandwich; this one was a group effort.)
Speaking of which, they did their fair share of that too.
(“And for my next trick, I will levitate.”)
We also spent countless hours trying to get my stubborn child down for a nap. Clearly she gets this willful streak from the Hubby. Alright fine, it’s all me, although for the record, I’m a fabulous sleeper.
(“You talking to me.”)
They even let her hang out with them, quite literally.
(Stefan is a natural.)
They didn’t get upset either when we discovered our road trip destination didn’t exist or when our travel snacks became a picnic on private property. We had the baby with us for this particular excursion, so I figured our chances of getting arrested were slim to none.
We all embraced our inner child and frolicked in the fountains. Hey Juli, white shirts and water is a recipe for Girls Gone Wild, you naughty minx, you.
After several attempts, Juli finally made friends with Oscar.
And we all enjoyed the occasional meal out alongside a handful of cocktails.
My favorite moments though were our early morning bowls of oatmeal or our late night leisurely dinners after Ave was in bed (no offense kid), where we hung out, drank beer, took silly selfies, and talked for hours.
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, big or small? Showering totally counts.
