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.

Let’s get listing:
Last week was fairly normal. We weren’t traveling, we didn’t have any out of town guests or big shindigs, and yet we still managed to keep pretty busy. What can I say? A tiny human keeps you on the move.
It also keeps your house perpetually messy, which is why I vacuumed out my car and cleaned a few drawers in the fridge, both of which were long overdue.
I submitted my latest asparagus recipe to Food Gawker, and they accepted it. That’s the second one in just a handful of weeks. They must have gotten new, more lenient approvers or maybe I’m just that good. I’m going with the latter.
I curled up with Oscar for a movie and an episode of Project Runway. He’s a fan of high fashion, although against wearing fur coats, unless it’s his own; obviously.
I did a lot of things with the tiny human too. We went to story time at the library one day and tried our hand at arts and crafts another. We also did some monkeying around at music class.
We took advantage of the warm weather earlier in the week and hit up the playground. Afterward, we went out for ice cream, and Ave ate all of hers and her friend’s ice cream. In return, she gave him her cone. It doesn’t seem like a fair trade to me, but they were happy.
I went to another foodie event, sponsored by Mouthwater Media at Yuzu, an Izakaya inspired bar. This place has been on my bucket list for months now, and it did not disappoint. I slurped my first ramen and was delighted with the cocktail menu. I’m already plotting my return and what I want to eat and drink next.
We did another preschool tour with the kiddo, and this time with the in-laws in tow, followed by a nice brunch out and a trip to Target for pull up diapers. My child is getting grown.
I also did a handful of my own cooking last week. I made another batch of snickerdoodle granola, kiwi muffins, a round of balls, creamy tomato basil soup, drop biscuits, and a broccoli cheese lasagna.
There were other things too, of course, like a Friday night fish fry and enough adulting to give me a stomachache. Where does all the dirty laundry come from, and why is my kitchen floor perpetually crunchy or sticky no matter how many times I clean it?
I’d like to end things on a positive note, so it’s worth mentioning I got in five workouts last week. Hooray for me and my swoobs (i.e. boob sweat).
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.
