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:
Thanks to my mother, who stayed with us part of last week and got up with Ave in the mornings, I got to sleep in a handful of days. I’m talking to the tune of 8 and sometimes even 9 o’clock. It was magical.
I published two blog posts, including this little gem, where I share my parenting pearls of wisdom. If you’re a soon to be mom, this one is for you.
I celebrated a belated Mother’s Day lunch with great company and tasty food.
I almost went to the yoga studio one day, but opted to do some couch yoga instead, which involved holding a horizontal stretch on a soft and cushy surface for several hours. It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.
I did manage to pull myself off the sofa though for a mother daughter gelato date.
I went farmers marketing! It was my first time this year and I was more excited than a puppy dog who pees on the floor when someone new comes over. I came away with peanut butter bread, green onions, asparagus, eggs, and some sassy carrots.
I snuck in several catnaps throughout the week. You’d think I was trying to catch up on all the sleep I missed in the last year. Oh wait…
I made a boatload of food, including these Buffalo Cauliflower Bites which have been on my foodie bucket list for years, along with a blue cheese dressing because one tasty morsel deserves another.
I did the usual adulting type nonsense: paid bills, reconciled bank accounts, vacuumed, washed clothes and bedding. I even showered every so often.
I also finished the great kitchen cabinet purge of 2017. Yes, I’m being dramatic mainly because this is the one I started months ago. Ave was a huge help.
I finished planting our veggies, along with my pint-sized assistant. This year we’ve got a little bit of everything: asparagus, garlic, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes (cherry, grape and the big boys), peppers (hot and bell), kale, spinach, Swiss chard, broccoli, cauliflower, and a variety of herbs. Hence, the reason my Hubby calls it “The Farm.”
We had a family outing to downtown Cleveland on Saturday afternoon, which ended with margaritas, chips and salsa. Ave enjoyed dining al fresco.
(“Excuse me waiter, I’ll have another please.”)
Last but not least, the Hubby and I went on a dinner date with some close friends. It was lovely.
On that note, it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
