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:
We went to our home away from home, Breadsmith, which on the surface isn’t that unusual, considering we make multiple trips there a week. This time though, we rode our bike, and it made the samples that much sweeter (and sweatier).
A new grocery store opened in our area, so we had to check it out; twice. We got lucky at Lucky’s Market and this entire haul only cost $78. Anytime I can escape a food shopping adventure for less than one hundred dollars, it’s a win.
Ave and I also taste tested our way through Goldie’s Donuts and Bakery, a new locally owned business which just opened a few weeks ago. It’s family owned and operated, which makes my hippy heart happy. My favorite part, aside from the apple fritters and the sour cream morsels, is they have a drive through window. Coffee and or donuts without even leaving the comfort of your car; amazing.
For my part, the tastiest thing I made last week was Laura’s Hummus Baked Falafel using this Morockin’ Carrot Hummus. It was so simple to put together and paired perfectly with a bowl of greens and tzatziki sauce. This recipe is definitely going in the rotation.
I also did a little sprucing up around the house. After forty years of life, I finally acquired two “nice” laundry hampers, mostly because my old plastic joints were falling apart. Not to be outdone, I did some touch up painting in the kitchen.
Last week wasn’t all work with no play though. The Hubby and I took Ave to an event called Crafty Kids, where we got to try art projects, eat free ice cream and get our faces (or arms) painted. It was the tiny dictators first time getting inked, and she took it like a champ.
After having a random and rough start to Saturday morning, Ave and I fled to the in-laws, where they made everything better…with margaritas, for me, not her.
Last but least, I made it a point to sit down and write, something I haven’t done in forever, even if it was mostly about nothing. It felt good to flex my creative side. I also played around with my camera a little bit, and while I clearly have no idea what I’m doing, I like this picture.
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. Have you put your garden in yet? What’s in it? What’s your favorite donut?
