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 guys!!! I’m running on empty. I overdid it last week, and all I want to do is curl up into a ball and sleep for days. I’d blame the tiny human, but truly it’s the book I’m currently devouring. I’ve been staying up waaaaayyyy too late reading it, only to need a nap the next day, which then allows me to stay up late again, pouring through the pages. It’s a vicious cycle.
On that note, let’s get listing:
I did a holy shitton of reading and subsequent napping.
I cleaned my oven, with baking soda and everything. Weird, but true.
I also did a spring cleaning of our staircase, complete with scrubbing stairs, baseboards and vacuuming the rug, only to have Oscar get sick all over the steps a day later. I’m pretty sure it’s a sign I should just let the house go completely.
Ave and I did our weekly activity circuit: story time, swim lessons and music class. She also spent two days hanging with grandma and grandpa. This kid gets around.
We had Ave’s bestie over for dinner one night followed by a rousing and riveting play date. Balloons make everything better, and these clowns make me laugh.
I hosted one of my girlfriends for an evening gab session, complete with fruit, veggies, cheese and of course, wine.
The Hubby and I burned through a gift card and had a rare evening out. The pasta was good, the company was better.
I hit up Bar 32 for a sponsored food event through Mouthwater Media. They plied me with pretzels, pizza, booze, specifically bourbon, and the best view of downtown Cleveland. I love my city and being a blogger; it has its perks.
Ave and I spent the vast majority of the weekend hanging with family since the Hubby’s uncle is in town for a bit. He managed to win Ave over with potato chips, which is the way to my heart too, especially when dip is involved.
Last but not least, I spent an afternoon with my bestie and her daughter. They came bearing wine and puffs. Something for us, something for the kiddos.
After reading through all this, it’s possible more than my book is to blame for the exhaustion.
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. Do you stay up too late reading? What book?
