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 another humdinger. Confession: I just wanted to say humdinger and now I’ve done it twice. I feel naughty, and it’s so good.
We kicked off last week in Portland with a trip to the local zoo. The elephants were the big highlight unless you count me choking down Ave’s disgusting hot dog. When you’re hungry, you’re hungry.
We also took a family trip to Build-A-Bear where Ave created her own friendly and furry creature. It makes my liberal heart happy to see her selecting a rainbow bear, which she outfitted with combat boots and a football. The kid has got style.
Thanks to my father-in-law, the Hubby and I remember to celebrate our thirteenth anniversary with dinner at Por Que No?. The food was out of this world, and I wish they had a location in Cleveland; I’d be there weekly.
We took the red eye home on Tuesday night, arriving in Cleveland at 4:30 on Wednesday morning. With only fours hours of sleep, the Hubby and I spent the better part of the day walking around like zombies and counting down the minutes until Ave’s bedtime.
Shockingly, we also managed to clean out and restock the fridge in our dilapidated state. It might not look like much, but those crisper drawers are bursting with green goodness, and it appears I have a minor (cough, major, cough) obsession with cheese.
In true adulting fashion, I hit up the title agency and the license bureau to get some car stuff sorted out. I also did all the laundry and even spent a handful of hours working in the yard, with the scratches to prove it. Will I ever learn to wear long sleeves when doing yard work? The short answer is no.
I scrounged up and donated several bags of baby toys and nursing apparatus to the immigration and refugee center, where they will go to people who can truly use them.
Additionally, I attended another foodie event, this time at Yard House in Crocker Park. The highlight of the meal was fried Wisconsin cheese curds, although I adored the whole cloves of garlic scattered across this margarita pizza. Garlic, and by extension pesto, makes everything better.
Last but not least, I hosted my bestie and her daughter for a play date. They brought donuts. Therefore, I invited them back tomorrow.
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.
