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.

Let’s get listing:
Last week was filled with pomp and circumstance, also known as popcorn and movies. Happiness arrived at my house in a treasure box filled with popped corn, a snuggly blanket and award winning flicks.
I have to give a big shout out to G.H. Cretors for sending me such a thoughtful and tasty care package. I could blame the kid or the fact I’m over thirty, but at home movie nights are kind of my ideal way to spend an evening these days.
When they offered to send me this lovely little box fraught with my foodie version of fun, I jumped at the opportunity. Typically I make popcorn the old fashioned way, on the stove top, and it was refreshing to let someone else do the work. As a bonus, I didn’t have to clean the stove post consumption; cooking popcorn is a messy business.
As a result of their GMO free generosity, the Hubby and I watched three movies last week, although the popcorn only survived two. It was gone in a matter of mouth stuffing minutes. I have zero self control when it comes to tasty vittles, plus anything with cheese.
In return for my perfectly presented parcel of popcorn, I promised to share their product with my readers provided my position was favorable. I’m pretty sure you can tell which way I’m leaning. In fact, I’m looking forward to scoring a bag of the Dill Pickle flavor at Target this week.
In addition to our movie marathons (the arts), last week was filled with magical mayhem, also known as the entertainment portion of this post.
Specifically, I had lunch out with my girlfriends on Thursdays while my in-laws looked after the tiny human. After stuffing myself silly on tacos, I went home and worked in the yard with the Hubby for hours on end. It was labor intensive and rewarding.
Later on in the week, Ave and I even managed to plant a few flowers and some herbs; Oscar is pleased with the addition of catnip to our raised garden bed.
On Saturday night, I celebrated one of our friends birthday at a bar downtown. Ave was fascinated with my party shoes. I wonder if this is where the obsession will begin.
Last but not least, I made creamy potato soup with the kale I foraged from the edible fruit arrangement the week prior. And to think, my dad suggested I toss those greens in the trash. Pffft.
On that note, it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week? Big or small?
