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:
The week started out in Buffalo, with an early morning breakfast with my older brother and mother. It was our parting meal since the tiny human and I hit the road for Cleveland a couple hours later.
On Tuesday, we tried to get back into our normal routine, which meant a visit to grandma and grandpa’s house, including dinner. Have I mentioned how much I love it when other people feed me? Hooray for pizza and salad.
Speaking of which, the Hubby and I had a date night. We were invited to Passport to Cleveland, which is a newer local foodie event, sponsored by my girl Lauren at CLEseats. It involved dueling pianos, boozy beverages and thirty different tasty bites from local restaurants. The short version was nothing short of a foodgasm.
Not to be outdone, Ave ate three fried eggs in one sitting for second breakfast. Her first breakfast was a cinnamon raisin bagel smeared with peanut butter. I’m pretty sure we’re both going through growth spurts.
We both indulged in some birthday celebrations on Saturday night. Ave went back for seconds on the ice cream, and I enjoyed a fine glass of bubbly.
Continuing the trend, on Sunday morning, we celebrated a boozy brunch with friends and their little people. It was wonderful to sit back and relax while someone else did the cooking, yet again. I have been so spoiled this past week.
I busted out a second blog post: Things People Don’t Tell You About Having Kids because I like to keep it real “up in here, up in here.” ♫
Last but definitely not least, Ave and I went to her music class and story time. We also took our first trip to the Children’s Museum with her bestie. It was a rousing success even if it was a little overwhelming (for me, not her). She’s already asking to go back.
Now it’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What is something you accomplished in the last week? Big or small. Are you as tired reading this as I feel reliving it? Clevelanders, do you have the CLEseats app yet? It’s free, and it involves discounts at local restaurants, including my favorite: $10 margarita flights at El Carnicero.
