Get you 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:
Ave and I kicked the week off with a road trip to Buffalo, so we’d be out of the way while her bathroom gets renovated. It’s still a work in progress, but I’m thrilled with the results so far. I’ll share the final product when it’s done. In the meantime, here’s a picture of a Buffalo sign. How thrilling.
We spent the majority of last week getting spoiled rotten by my father and step mother. They stocked the house with all of my favorites: white pizza, potato chips and dip, ice cream, and beans and green because balance.
In returned, I shared my beer.
(Thank you Wild Ohio for the generous donation to my booze fund.)
Ave also tried her first ever waffle. She’s a fan of anything that gets covered in syrup. I can relate.
We spent the majority of one day with Ave’s cousins. It was fun and absolutely exhausting to be surrounded by three children under four years old. I have no idea how parents of multiples do it. I was ready for bed at one o’clock…in the afternoon. I was ready for wine by noon.
We had breakfast out one day with my brother and mother, and then we hung out for a few hours afterward. Ave rekindled her friendship with my brother’s dog, Hagrid who is nearly four times her size now.
On Friday, we drove home and got reacquainted with Oscar. We didn’t tell him about Hagrid. Some things are best left unsaid.
We spent Saturday morning having breakfast with Santa. Ave preferred bacon to the big guy; bacon is pretty impressive.
We hit up the local library on Saturday afternoon for general shenanigans and managed to catch a drop in story time, which involved arts and crafts. Ave made her own cloud, complete with glue, cotton balls, and not one, not two, but four googly eyes. It’s a masterpiece (cough, cough).
On Sunday, we ran errands. We stopped by our favorite haunt, Breadsmith, and checked out the newest grocery store in the area, Constantino’s. We also did a little online shopping and basic adulting nonsense: laundry and vacuuming. We finished our day with a play date for the kiddos and a wine date for the mothers. Hashtag winning.
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. What are your feelings on bacon and maple syrup, separately or combined?
