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 suppose I should open with the big news first. Despite all proclamations and promises I wouldn’t do this, I went ahead and started a liquid cleanse.
Truth be told, I didn’t even finish a full bottle of wine last week, although I did purchase the ingredients for Moscow Mules so I can take my new Christmas glasses out for a spin.
And in truly big news, Ave has started a kind of crawling. It’s more like slinking, inch worming, or army pulling, where she drags her carcass across the carpet, mostly with her right appendages. Either way, the result is the same, this kid is on the move.
She’s also perfecting her princess wave, so it’s been quite an exciting week over here. New skills means nap time troubles (think 25 minutes or less). Thankfully, she’s still sleeping through the night. Quick, someone knock on wood.
The tiny human and I also started a new session of Baby and Me story time at the local library. It involves books, bubbles and the itsy bitsy spider so it’s a real party. Now if only they’d let me bring in my coffee. Silly no food or drinks in the library rule. Pfft.
(Yeah not really anymore, although I can pretend.)
Over the course of last week, we hit up Whole Foods, Breadsmith and Babies R Us, where I actually got to pick out some of Ave’s clothes for the very first time. Thus far, we’ve been fortunate with gifts and hand me downs.
Apart from the child, I went through some of the kitchen cabinets, cleaning and purging to my heart’s content. It gave me all the feels.
I worked out three times. Special shout on goes to my father-in-law who watched the baby so I could hop on the elliptical in our basement.
I also posted two blogs including this ridiculously easy and foolproof veggie bean soup. Seriously, half the ingredients in this bowl of beauty were supposed to be something else. Also I left it out on the stove overnight; twice.
Last but not least, I tested a new recipe with Brussels Sprouts.
Oh and as you can see, my cleanse involves bacon.
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?
