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. ♫
Last week was uneventful, especially when you consider I didn’t have concrete plans or company in town. In comparison to weeks gone by, it felt almost slow and simple, which was refreshing, quite literally since I finished off that margarita mix I mentioned in my Currently post.
To make things more interesting, I’m breaking the week down by days and sharing the highlights, meaning I’m skipping over the copious amounts of laundry I folded, dishes I scrubbed or piles of cat vomit I washed off the floor. It’s a glamorous life I know.
Those margaritas are looking better and better right?
Let’s get listing:
On Monday, the kid and I did a big Costco run with the in-laws. Who doesn’t love two pound blocks of cheese? This is clearly a rhetoric question unless of course you’re lactose intolerant, in which case I’m sorry for you.
Tuesday found us at the Cleveland Zoo, where we got to see lots of animals, ride a carousel, feed some birds and hop on a train. Ave had a blast, even though the thirty seconds where she passed out in the car on the way home constituted her entire afternoon nap.
On Wednesday, we hit up the local library for some playtime shenanigans. They have a fantastic kids section and Ave loves to watch other tiny dictators in action, so we usually go there a couple times a week. We also indulged Ave with her first soft shelled taco and we practiced feeding ourselves with a spoon. Needless to say, Wednesday was also bath night.
Thursday was my free day. Ave spent the afternoon with my in-laws while I cleaned the house (not that you could tell now) and cooked. I made some basic granola, a batch of quinoa, sweet potato quinoa burgers and spinach ramp pesto, which the tiny human ate straight up with a spoon. What can I say? She has great taste.
Friday was all about survival mode once Ave decided she had no interest in naps. I cancelled everything I’d mentally planned to accomplish and just made sure the babe and I stayed well fed and positive. Thankfully the Hubby only worked until three that day so he was able to give me a good break.
On Saturday, we hit up the beach for some family fun followed by dinner with friends and Ave’s little buddy.
Sunday was lunch with the in-laws, Panera at our house. After they left, the Hubby and I spontaneously decided to rearrange our entire bedroom. We still have to move pictures but it’s a solid start.
Now, 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?
