Sensational Sunday Shots a Little Late

17 Comments 1620 views

Ok, so I chose sleep last night. It’s no wonder looking at my day. It was a classic busy Sensational Sunday that really helped me get prepared for the week. Here are the pictures I snapped and an abbreviated version of our day…

My parents came to visit and we started our day relaxing and watching Up.

Once everyone left I had some fun in the kitchen using one of my new favorite obsessions…

Overstuffed Cheesy Beef Taco Wrap.

The next few hours I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned. The husband had gaelic football practice and the Little Guy went to a friends house. It was nice just hanging out with the Little Bean and spending time in the house. It really was the first time we were alone…

Once he fell back asleep cleaning felt almost like therapy. And believe me the house NEEDED it. Just look at our basement!

When the husband came home he turned on golf. Looks like we are going to have another golfer in the house soon enough! :)

Little guy was uninterested so he picked up the iPad. He’s obsessed!

We were a little late with this but a new month brings a new kitchen calendar.

Little Man also helped me finish up the cleaning…

and then we had a snack…

Afterwards the whole family went grocery shopping for the week.

All in all it was a great day. We were all exhausted but only one of us slept through most of it…

oh! and here’s my food journal. I dipped into weeklies for some fries and a McDonald’s cone. Totally worth it in my opinion. ;)

Morning Weigh In: Didn’t get on today. I take weekends off.

Conscious Activity: Nothing real special today but I did clean the house. That’s gotta count for something. ;)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I know you don’t have a ton of parenting experience, but you can’t just lay a baby down on the table and let him watch tv. I made that same mistake…

    lol @ Jack!

    Looks like a FUN Sunday! I love the LC wedge idea you have created! YUM! Must try soon!!

    Two things:

    1) Is it normal for the kids to watch tv standing in front of it like that?? Guitar Guy’s little man does the same thing. It’s like the couch just ISN’T close enough for him :)

    2) I have found (with the help of my bodybugg) that the weekend days where I don’t run or workout, but I clean house and sing in the praise band and grocery shop etc are the days that I seem to burn the most calories (energy). So yes, in answer to your question, house cleaning definitely COUNTS!!!

    I love you sensational sunday posts :) Thanks for sharing all your pics!

    What a great day! And I personally find it hysterical at how cats react to brooms and sweepers and the like. Like they have any idea how many cats have been swept up! lol
    Oh! Little Guy is getting big! (238 days and Man Cub will have a buddy too!)

    I always enjoy seeing people’s days summed up in photos. It looks like you had a fantastic weekend, and I’m really glad you let yourself enjoy some french fries. :) I must also remember to never let my wife come to your blog, because she has some vicious baby fever right now, and your little guy is so cute, I think it might just make it worse. :)

    You know I jut love days like that! Evan is so tiny – might kids were both over 8 pounds at birth and gigantic compared to him!

    Cleaning house is a workout in my opinion!

    Just had to write – you look terrific. You are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside(little bean too!)

    Take care.
