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 was lucky enough to have Lucie with me for the first half the week.
We fully intended to go kayaking, but since the place was sold out, we opted to do a little day drinking instead with a side of bruschetta to soak up all the booze.
One afternoon, we had a photo shoot at the beach, where I might have gone for a quick dip in the lake…in my underwear. I was glad I wore matching skivvies that day, although I did have to stuff my nursing pads in Lucie’s camera bag. My leading lady on the other hand was smart enough to wear her bathing suit, yet she didn’t actually go swimming. How’s that for irony?
We had multiple Sex and the City viewing parties, which we rounded out with a classic movie, Dead Poet’s Society. I cannot believe how young Ethan Hawke and Robin Williams are in this flick.
I went to Nature’s Bin and The Breadsmith multiple times. Lucie and I treated the sample plate at the latter like a free for all. I also hit up Whole Foods so I could use an almost expired gift card. Apparently I’m a fan of grocery stores, and we all know I love my carbs.
Speaking of my spirit animal, I made a batch of Banana Peach Oat muffins.
I also got my hair cut; all of them in fact.
I vacuumed out the car…on Friday night while the baby supervised.
I also embraced my inner child and started making bracelets. Mock me all you want (I totally would), but I’m thoroughly enjoying it. Who knows, maybe I’ll start a new trend like adult coloring.
On the other end of the spectrum, I cleaned a bunch of rooms in the homestead, and I did mountains of laundry. I’m pretty sure I washed the sheets for every bed in the house, except ours. I’m not sure how that happened, but I plan to rectify it this week.
I paid bills and reconciled our bank accounts.
Over the weekend, the Hubby, the babe, and I all road tripped to Buffalo to attend family dinner. There were lots of things to eat, including a giant vat of garlicky beans and greens and yet somehow I only managed to photograph the mashed potatoes swimming in a pool of butter. Imagine that (licks lips; spud love baby, spud love).
Last but certainly not least, I had a blast at my 20 year high school reunion. God I’m old. And on that note…
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?
