I’m feeling MUCH better after today even with a sleepless night. I can’t blame the baby. He’s doing quite well, only waking to eat and then right back to sleep. Me on the other hand? I can’t seem to dose back off after nursing. It’s driving me nuts!
But let’s not focus on the negative. Today really was a Sensational Sunday!
I decided to start my day having a bit of fun in the kitchen.
It may not look like much but it’s warm quinoa with some dark chocolate and mint. Sounds weird but it was fun and tasty! Experimenting in the kitchen always makes me happy.
After breakfast I spent some time with these two…
Even on no sleep they make me smile. I found and posted an inspiration parenting quote on Babble. It really helped me put some things into perspective.
A little while later I left all the boys to fend for themelves and went to nap.
It was just what I needed.
For lunch I had some of an experimental pasta salad I made yesterday.
It was good but I want to tweak it a bit more before sharing on GreenLiteBites.
After lunch we got ready for Little Guy’s T-Ball game. On the way we decided stop at Cold Stone for a treat. I stuck with sorbet. The husband ordered a chocolate shake and ended up not liking it. HOW you don’t like a chocolate shake is beyond me. So little guy had some..
and then I had a sip. I probably shouldn’t have because after one taste it made it that much harder to give it up.
I did. Just a few sips and then in the garbage it went.
Part of me still thinks it’s a waste but it’s better wasted in the trash then in my body. Right?
Please tell me I’m right. ;)
The game went smashing! Little Guy did fantastic!
We got home ready to grill dinner but had to wait for a wicked storm to pass. So I made this to hold me over…
It was just like my Less Green More Blue Simple Smoothie but it was pink. I was all out of frozen blueberries so I used raspberries. It was just as good if not better!
While I made dinner the boys worked on robogator. It’s a LEGO Mindstorm project. They finished it tonight and I have it on video. I’ll try to post tomorrow.
This thing is stinkin’ COOL
Dinner was burgers on the grill. I had a Herb-alicious Burger and so did Little Guy! He picked out some rosemary from the garden and we added it to his. He has now officially surpassed the husband in the culinary interest department. ;)
While cleaning up dinner I caught a glimpse of Irish. She was just lounging in the wet grass after the storm.
Soon it was baths and bed for the kids and then I went out for a run.
THAT was EXACTLY how I needed to end my day. Me and my music.
Right now? Well I’m eating a few crunchy green beans while the husband folds the laundry.
Life is good. ;)
