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.

Is it any wonder the socialite edition corresponds with my sixty-ninth week in review. Hmm, something to ponder certainly. I suppose anyone engaging in that kind of activity is bound to be popular. In any event, last week was jam packed with activity and cake, mainly because we celebrated the Hubby’s birthday…on three different occasions.
Let’s get listing:
I did the usual grocery shopping trip times two, and I managed to pick up a chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and chocolate frosting from Whole Foods. Ave picked it out; clearly she has good taste. It was so rich my teeth hurt just looking at it, which in no way stopped me from consuming it in mass quantities.
The Hubby and I went out with friends on Tuesday night to celebrate again. We opted to go high brow with beer and hotdogs because we’re fancy like that. It was a blast.
Not one to be left out of the shenanigans, we took the baby sledding one afternoon…in our front yard. After some initial hesitation, she decided it was a worthwhile endeavor.
Ave and I also hit up Baby and Me story time on Thursday and the in-laws house on Friday. What can I say? We get around.
One night, we made artichoke white bean and cheese dip for dinner and another night we threw together some oatmeal raisin cookies. The babe is fascinated with kitchen appliances.
Ave is a fan of the vacuum too which is partially why I did it a thousand times last week (cough, three times, cough). The tiny human has an eye for floor lint and the ability to get there now.
I continued with my kitchen cabinet purge, knocking off two sets of cabinets and two drawers, including the dreaded junk drawer. Dun, dun, dun.
I got my hairs cut, all of them.
I went serious and political on the blog, a rarity for me, with this post.
I took the Hubby out for a coffee date on Thursday afternoon. Some pastries decided to join us. This is my kind of swinging.
I hung with the ladies on Friday night. Snacks, sweets, and booze were involved.
The whole family spent Saturday afternoon at the in-laws celebrating the Hubby’s birthday yet again. We had loads of salad, veggie raviolis, meatballs and Italian bread for lunch followed by German chocolate cake and an off key rendition of happy birthday.
Saturday night, after Ave was sound asleep (minus the 3 a.m. wake up call), the Hubby and I got our cook on because we hosted a brunch at our house on Sunday.
We had fresh fruit, Parmesan roasted sweet potatoes, an asparagus and asiago strata (recipe coming soon), bacon, mimosa, and pastries. I’m salivating just thinking about it.
And on that note, it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
hat are three things you accomplished in the last week? Big or small?
