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 had a group mommy and baby play date at the house on Friday. Connecting with other mothers is the only reason I’m still sane, provided you call what’s left upstairs sanity.
Ave and I went to the West Side Market and Whole Foods, where she dabbled in her first hot bar action.
Despite all evidence to the contrary, she really liked the white bean and carrot medley I picked out for her.
(“Feed me carrots again, and I will cut you.”)
In addition to food shopping, we snagged our Christmas tree, a lovely seven foot Frasier fir.
Continuing the holiday theme, we put up our decorations, indoors and out. The babe was a fan, although not a huge help. Unlike Oscar, she has opposable thumbs, although she has no idea how to use them; beyond shoving them in her mouth that is.
We went to breakfast with Santa on Saturday morning. We spent the first part of the event doing donuts in the parking lot while Ave got some zzz’s, followed by an entire outfit change and full body scrub down (you know why) before taking selfies with mom and hanging with the big man. Thankfully I packed an extra party dress. Call it mother’s intuition or Murphy’s Law, I just knew a backdoor bash was bound to happen.
As for me, sans child, I published three blog posts, including Motherhood to Music which I’m tickled pink about.
I had lunch out with friends. It was great to catch up with this particular group of people and absolutely magical spending some hours apart from the tiny human (no offense kid).
I also hosted my older brother for a quick overnight visit, and we watched the movie, Creed. It was worth seeing, especially if you’re a fan of the Rocky franchise…and I just aged myself.
(We’re a little older now, although not much wiser.)
I worked out four times on the elliptical. It feels nice to sweat again and I don’t mean the nursing hot flashes.
I managed to grab two solid naps on the weekend, and they were glorious.
I did the usual laundry, paid bills, reconciled bank accounts and played in my planner.
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?
