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.

The tiny human turned two and just like that, my life is completely altered. Alright fine, fine, it really changed a couple of years ago, but this diabolical dictator is suddenly and voraciously living up to her name.
She is proclaiming her independence loud and proud (“NO MOMMY, Ave do it.”) or clinging to me like a barnacle on a boat. She banned the Hubby from speaking to me and had a mini-meltdown in Whole Foods, during happy hour of course, because Grandma had the audacity to push the grocery cart, which apparently is “Mommy’s job.”
Last week wasn’t all disobedience and drinks (for me that is).
Let’s get listing:
We hosted my mother for the week, which meant evenings watching Outlander once the wee one was tucked in bed. We both read all the books and so far are big fans of the show.
We took Ave to the children’s museum during Spring Break week. Translation: we deserve a medal. It was absolute and utter chaos, which in no way stopped Ave from having a great time.
Afterwards, we went trolling for sustenance and hit up Panera for lunch, where I continued my love affair with bacon.
Of course the big news though is we celebrated the tiny human’s second birthday on Saturday complete with a taco bar and a homemade cookie cake. Confession: I bought the frosting, and I added the Reese pieces because my decorative icing flowers looked more like turds. Also, Peas and Crayons chipotle lentil tacos are everything.
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. How did you celebrate your last birthday?
