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:
Last week passed in an absolute blur of the very best things. Sure, sure, there was general adulting, a cheeky blog post on health trends, a visit to Bubba’s Q and more home improvement projects than I care to confess.
The highlight though was and is the German invasion. Translation, Juli and Stefan came to visit us (hence the reason I cleaned the house and painted the cabinets). I picked them up at the airport Thursday night, and it’s been carefully constructed chaos ever since, in the best possible way, of course.
♫“I’m [anal] and I know it.”♫
Lunch at Melt Bar and Grilled, where battered, breaded, deep fried lasagna meets grilled cheese. It’s as healthy (cough, cough) and as tasty as it sounds. Also, despite having her own sandwich, Ave licked mine. Yes, licked.
East 4th Street Shenanigans with dinner at Butcher and the Brewer, where we indulged on crispy potatoes with smoked paprika aioli and peirogi flatbread, among other meaty things. We were able to score seats on the outdoor patio, which was perfect for people watching and enjoying the music via a street performer.
Playground antics, where after months of uncertainty and many, many minutes of hesitation, Ave tackled the “round and round slide.” I was just as excited as her. Thank you Juli for capturing this moment so perfectly.
A trip to Holden Arboretum, where we traversed the 120 foot tower and scaled the canopy walk.
A quick lunch out followed by pistachio gelato from my favorite, The Sweet Spot.
Speaking of food perfection, thank you Juli, for bringing me just over two jars of your infamous drippy white chocolate macadamia nut butter, which I finished in just under three days, with nothing more than a spoon. I’ve got skills. And it’s pretty much the best thing ever.
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. What spots in your town do you take guests who are visiting?
