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.

Do you ever have one of those weeks where you can’t remember anything you did? Yeah that happens to me all the time, which is why I jot down notes in my iPhone or else most of these posts would be bleak black holes of emptiness, when in actuality nothing could be further from the truth.
While last week’s comings and goings weren’t fraught with magical memories, I still accomplished a holy crapton of stuff. Let’s get listing:
I got the guest bedroom cleaned, the bedding washed and ready for a visit from my dad and stepmom.
I also made a spinach and cheese lasagne in anticipation of their stay. Sadly the weekend weather kept them home. On the plus side though, I’ve got plenty of leftovers now for the week.
I cleaned the kitchen, including the baby’s high chair, which was as close to the seventh layer of hell as possible without actually taking the plunge. I’m shuddering just thinking about it.
I did some holiday shopping.
I finished my book and started another, which I’m more than halfway through already.
I made a boatload of bracelets to send to friends.
The Hubby and I put a serious dent in the nearly one hundred holiday cards we send out each year. I created the address labels and signed my name, while my other half managed the rest. He’s definitely a keeper.
I folder and put away mountains of clean clothes, mainly because I was out of underwear and socks.
Speaking of footwear, we scored a stocking for the tiny human. She’s the newly acquired striped green one.
I put air in the tires since they were drastically low (cough, ten pounds, cough), while Ave waited patiently in the car.
The babe and I also hit up a Gymboree class, which was ball and bubble heavy, perfect for little ones.
We also had a play date with another little buddy on Friday morning and cruised over to grandma and grandpa’s house in the afternoon to check out a new and exciting toy.
Throughout the week, we paid visits to Breadsmith (Ave is officially a fan of the samples), Whole Foods, Walgreens, and Target.
As for my solo endeavors, I hopped on the elliptical once and squeezed in a Monday morning yoga class, my first time getting bendy with it in over a year. It was almost as good as chocolate.
I submitted my Motherhood to Music post to Scary Mommy. Cross your fingers for me please.
I photographed and worked on a post for vegetable bean soup, which I hope to share later this week.
In other kitchen news, I made blueberry pancakes (Ave destroyed hers), granola, and a batch of blue cheese and chive drop biscuits for the sole purpose of freezing them. These are deliciously handy to have around. They also pair perfectly with soup. Just sayin’.
In hindsight, it’s unbelievable that I started this post thinking I hadn’t accomplished anything last week. The minutia most definitely adds up.
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?
