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 made my own eclipse viewers before I managed to score a pair of fancy glasses from the next door neighbor. The difference between the two was night and day, pun totally intended.
By the way, I can’t believe the solar eclipse was only last Monday; it feels like a lifetime ago. Perhaps because the Hubby and I are still taking turns dealing with the tiny dictator in the middle of the night. She’s been waking up every other night for weeks now, wanting to party like a rock star, and it’s taking us hours to get her back to sleep. Send coffee.
Despite our sleepless ways, we’ve forged on and continued our daytime shenanigans, including multiple trips to the park, sometimes in the same day and play dates with our buddies, which included a planetarium show, watching ducks and most excitedly, throwing rocks into the dirt and eating peaches with our filthy fingers.
We also embarked on a family gelato date. Not surprisingly, my mini-minion was a huge fan.
Since we’re on the topic of tasty eats, I made Chelsea’s zucchini bread, which we destroyed in less than 24 hours and by we, I mean Ave. It was light, moist, slightly sweet and totally satisfying.
I also whipped up a batch of vegetarian three bean chili, another round of zucchini noodles (zoodles are a game changer) and eggplant Parmesan.
I squeezed in a few runs and did a half-hearted television workout, also known as lifting weights and doing squats while watching the housewives of some county.
I shared a blog recipe for baked ratatouille with melted cheese and threw out a mini mountain of twist ties. You’d have to read the post to understand.
Also, I submitted the same recipe to Food Gawker with actual success; hooray! Cue jazz hands, kitchen dance parties and a celebratory glass of wine. Alright fine, give me the whole bottle. I did mention the kid wasn’t sleeping right?
I watched a couple of movies and finished two books.
Additionally, I had a lovely and long lunch with an old work associate.
Oh and I bought my first ever pair of Birkenstocks, sending my hippie status off the charts.
The most exciting news of course is I solidified a September trip to San Diego, to see one of my blogging besties. That’s right, Ave and I are going cross-country. Now if only we can get her sleep issues under control before then. Gulp.
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.
