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.

♫ You can do it, put your list into it. ♫
Let’s get listing:
I did a whole lot of nothing last week, and I loved it.
After being super social for the past several weeks, I needed a break from it all. Aside from hosting my mom for a quick overnight visit, the kid and I relaxed a lot. Alright, I chilled while I put Ave to work. I gotta take advantage of the free labor.
(“Don’t make me clean the bathrooms again, Mom.”)
As such, we did lots of tummy time (she’s looking into going pro), we read a bunch of books, our favorite being Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type, and we went on a smattering of walks.
One day, we celebrated a self-appointed Pajama Day, which involved lounging around in our PJ’s all day long. We didn’t leave the house, we didn’t entertain anyone, and we didn’t even change our clothes. Alright fine, Ave had an outfit swap but only because she soiled her first set. Her bad.
As a result of all our resting and recharging, I managed to publish three blog posts, submit a handful of recipes to Food Gawker and send off a post to Scary Mommy. Cross those fingers for me; your toes wouldn’t hurt either.
I also finished a bracelet, tested some recipes and began a love affair with Friday Night Lights. It was a good week for the soul.
On that note, I’m making next week’s roundup the Self Care edition. You could stick to your traditional lists or if you’re feeling frisky, join me for a week of debauchery, self-love and pampering. I hope to see you there.
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?
