Get your 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.

Last week was one of our more relaxed weeks of the summer. We weren’t traveling anywhere, we didn’t have company or any big outings. It was nice and as chill as life can be with a “wild” two year old (her words, not mine).
Let’s get listing:
We played pretend a lot: tennis, driving, grocery shopping, eating Breadsmith samples (my favorite form of pretend), opening presents, and cooking dinner. The tiny dictator is all about make believe these days, and I’m indulging her creative spirit, even when it means chasing dinosaurs or rolling on the floor like a cat. My life is so glamorous.
We exercised a lot, a couple runs, a spinning class, a weight lifting class, bike rides, some action on the elliptical and laps up and down the street with the mini minion. Ave loves to exercise, which includes but is not limited to running, jumping, skipping, walking and dancing. Her love for fitness makes me one proud (and yes sappy) parent.
I’m a glutton for punishment (see note about exercise above), so I invited Ave’s bestie over for a couple of hours and watched the two of them solo. They had a blast, made a “pretend” cake, and ran around like animals, while I made sure they stayed alive. Mission accomplished.
Ave and I spent Sunday morning living our best life, at the beach. Even though it was just the two of us and one ginormous flight of stone stairs leading to the beach, it went remarkably smooth, and I’m thinking we should do this more often while the temperatures justify it.
Tiny human aside, I started watching Orange is the New Black and can safely say I’m hooked. I like to think it’s a step above the Housewives, although I do not and will not apologize for my love of sleazy television.
I shared a recipe for Kohlrabi Noodles in Thai inspired curry sauce. When it comes to this quirky vegetable, it’s a game changer, and I gleefully and not so gracefully slurped it right up.
The vast majority of my free time though went to working on potentially turning my granola recipes into a business. I did a cost analysis on six of the flavors, created a name, designed a logo, filed an LLC, and put together a pretty sharp product, if I do say so myself. As for the next step, I have no idea, but I’ll figure it out.
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. What do you think of my new granola design, City Hippie? Any suggestions on where (and how) to market it?
