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. ♫
We did a ton of stuff last week, and it turns out I mostly took pictures of the food. You’re welcome.
Let’s get listing:
On Monday, we had the Hubby’s uncle in town, so we went out to eat for breakfast and dinner. Double the food, double the fun.
(Avocado Caprese Salad from Hecks)
(Buffalo Cauliflower from Hecks)
We squeezed in another trip to the aquarium. I’m partial to the sharks; no surprise there. Fun fact: when we play with Ave’s aquatic bath toys, we hum the Jaws theme song. She loves it. Granted, she has no idea what we’re singing.
We went to Crocker Park one afternoon for their Safari party for kids. It was mostly an overcrowded mess. Ave was disappointed there were no monkeys, and I was irritated the adults wouldn’t sit down in front of us, so the kids could actually see the Jungle Terry show. Believe me, I asked, and I’m just grateful it didn’t turn ugly.
Of course we did our usual things, playground visits and bike rides. We also ran our typical errands, going to the grocery store and Breadsmith multiple times, and we rounded it all out with a visit to Pet Supplies Plus because Oscar needs to eat too.
We tried to go strawberry picking, but missed out on the season, so we did the next best thing: bought all the strawberries instead. In a heroic effort of will power, I managed to clean and freeze more than half of these beauteous babies.
Thanks to our CSA and having a fridge stocked full with veggies, I ate my body weight in green things. My mother, who visited for the weekend, joined me in my quest to ingest all the fiber. It’s a rootin’ tootin’ good time around these parts; literally.
(Kale salad with cherries, feta, and candied walnuts.)
We finished off the week with a visit to one my favorite brunch spots, Sweet Melissa, mainly so I could get a blood orange mimosa or two.
The true highlight of the week though was switching Ave to a toddler bed. After a few failed attempts to scale her crib walls, we knew it was only a matter of time before she sought out sleeping freedom.
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.
