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:
We did a lot of yard work. With very old, ornery and ogre sized oak trees in our yard, we get more than our fair share of leaves. Thankfully, Ave makes a great ‘helper’ (cough, cough).
We took the kitty to the vet yet again; sigh. On the plus side, I’ve been getting lots of snuggles with her while reading my book. While the circumstances aren’t ideal, the relaxing time with my furry feline is wonderful.
We had some nap struggles earlier in the week, and as a result, we fled to the in-laws house. Have I mentioned how much I love them? Grateful is an understatement.
We hit up the local library for general shenanigans and went to story time as well.
We mastered the slide at the park, going down it 6,327 times. I wish this was an exaggeration.
We went to a music class and followed it up by playing with new toys, also known as the holy grail of toddlerdom.
We did dinner with friends. It involved margaritas and burritos from one of our favorite Mexican restaurants: Villa Y Zapata.
As far as exercise goes, we went on a nature walk with our buddies because they make everything better. These two little munchkins actually passed leaves back and forth which is pretty impressive since most play has been parallel up to this point.
I also tried out a cycling class at CycleBar Beachwood. They invited a friend and I to their studio, and we were blown away. It was super clean, modern and incredibly high tech. Despite it being my first spinning experience in two years, there was no pain, not even from the bike seat. Also, they finished the class with cool lavender soaked towels and bananas. Be still my heart. Despite it being on the other side of town, I will definitely be back.
The highlight of the week though was on Saturday night. We went to a local event: Boo at the Zoo. I smuggled in wine, there was costumes and creatures galore and Ave loved it, or at least the McDonald’s french fries at the end. Can you blame her?
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. Have you tried a CycleBar class yet? What Fall like activities have you been up to?
