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.

Ave and I spent most of last week partying like rock stars in San Diego. Alright maybe not entirely like rock stars since our constant sniffling was because of a cold and the 4 a.m. wake up calls were because of the three hour time change. That being said, if you’re going to be sick, San Diego is a great place to be, especially when coffee comes with this view.
Despite these minor blips, we had and still are having a blast. I have to give a special shout out to my girl Laura and her partner in crime, Vegas, who have been the most amazing hosts. They’ve given us their master bedroom, let us take over their home (literally since our stuff is in every room), fed us tasty vittles, shared their wine collection, taken us out on the town and shown us so much love and grace.
Without further ado, let’s get listing:
Ave, my little brother, and I hopped on a plane and flew to San Diego. We ate snacks, played with new toys and cruised the aisles every fifteen minutes or so. We didn’t nap at all, but we did meet another tiny dictator and have a play date in the sky.
The three of us also hit up La Jolla Beach one day to pay homage to the sea lions. Ave was enamored with the bestial creatures even in the face of their overwhelming stench. They are cute, but rank.
We found the closest playground and hit up the park a couple of times. We made it a point to exercise. Ave lifted weights, and I lifted Ave. I also pushed her stroller up and down some monster hills.
We balanced out our physical prowess with a sweet treat and an afternoon at Coronado Beach. Laura knows the way to Ave’s heart is through ice cream, sand and water.
We spent Saturday morning at the farmers market eating all the samples.
We went out to dinner at Cueva Bar one night, an Argentina tapas restaurant.
Suffice to say, we’ve been having a wonderful time, minus one major meltdown on Sunday morning. An irate baby plus a hungry momma equals a hot mess. Thankfully, Elmo videos have the power to save the day. Remind me to send flowers to Sesame Street.
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. How do you handle toddler meltdowns? Have you ever smelled sea lions up close?
