The only time I left the house today was for a run and it was glorious! (Both the run and chilling at home with my boys.)
I got lots of work done. I got lots of family time in. I couldn’t ask for a better day.
It all started when I woke up just a little bit earlier than everyone else. When that happens I take advantage and get some work done. Today it was FitBloggin’. I’ve been going though speaker applications and working on the agenda all weekend. I also created the buttons and updated the Who’s Comin’ page. When you work for yourself you work when you can and for me that was 6:30 this morning.
Soon I was joined by Little Guy and we took a Highlights break…
before making pancakes.
He still loves to help. It’s awesome!
We made our old standby, Quick Banana Pancakes and I whipped up an egg for Little Bean in the background.
Little Bean joined us and someone took over the "Find the Finger" game with a version of his own.
Then it was time for Mommy’s run.
Ms. Forgetful forgot her Nike+ sensor so I have no proof but Carrie and I ran a local paved trail that’s 3.3 miles one way. It was so fun. 6 miles go by in a flash when you are chatting the whole time. I think it took us about an hour and half with walk breaks. We’re trying to make this a Sunday tradition.
When I got home I made myself the traditional omelet.
Today’s fillings: onion, mushrooms, spinach and ham.
With the baby napping and the husband sleeping (he went back to bed lol) Little Bean and I watched Power Rangers. He’s totally obsessed right now. It’s cute.
I also got some work done for our HOA. I somehow volunteered to be my community’s web master. So I had to pull together a few google forms and update the website for the annual meeting.
Before baby woke up I hopped in the shower and grabbed a snack. The eggs weren’t holding me over after the run so I grabbed a Larabar.
When baby woke up it was laundry time. Which we made fun, of course.
I made Little Guy and I pizzas on sandwich thins and Little Bean ate his new favorite…
avocado chunks with some black beans and carrots. He’s becoming quite the accomplished little eater!
The rest of the afternoon was quite a blur while cleaning up and playing.
There was the Ravens game, of course.
Well, I have to show you it finished.
And any excuse to share a cute pic of Little Bean. ;)
Then we played a little Jenga…
before I cooked dinner.
I made some chicken tenders with homemade breading (I may share it on GreenLiteBites,) roasted carrots, sweet potato fries and my very first batch of Collard Greens WHICH no one ate but me, of course.
Little Bean, however, had his very first sweet potato fry…
He liked it!
After dinner the brothers played.
Once Little Bean went to bed, Little Guy help me do one last thing…
Organize the pantry. I mean look at it! Total disaster zone!
That was then. THIS is now…
That’s it. Once the kids were both in bed I settled in to watch Once Upon a Time, my Sunday obsession.
Ok, must sleep. Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
