I have to thank you guys. When I first started these Sensational Sunday posts the idea was simply to share how I prepare for the week. It was about starting fresh, being active and putting any weekend craziness behind me.
However, over the last 5 years (yes, that’s how long I’ve been doing them!) they’ve evolved into these photo driven journals mostly because of your feedback, and I love it! I love waking up on a Sunday morning, grabbing my camera and trying to capture the essence of the day. I can’t explain why, but it’s fun and motivating. Not to mention, I’m capturing family moments I otherwise wouldn’t.
Thank you for the inspiration.
Now on to the photos!
I woke up to find Little Guy watching Power Rangers on the iPad.
He was mimicking the karate moves.
We checked in at our new Command Center.
And planned out the day.
First up, chores.
Look how TALL he is on the stool. I remember when he needed it just to reach the counter.
(note: We made Banana Pancake Waffles while sharing some oranges and yogurt.)
More chores. Little Guy’s room was a disaster zone!
Not that I could talk…
I kind of let my room go these past few weeks. It was seriously time to clean up.
By mid-morning I was ready for a snack.
I’m not sure when I turned into someone who grabs a bowl kale out of the fridge to snack on but that’s what I did, and it was fantastic! (click here for my Raw Kale Salad with Feta and Dried Cranberries)
Time for "me time!" I decided instead of hitting the gym I’d treat myself to a pedicure.
Looks like going with Ravens purple may have been a bad move. ;)
Soon it was time for Little Guy’s soccer game.
So much fun watching him out there!
Little Bean had fun too, eating his lunch. :)
Afterwards the boys wanted McDonald’s for lunch but I wasn’t game. So we hit a drive-thru and brought it home…
I stuck with leftovers.
Last night I whipped up BBQ Chicken Pasta. The boys both loved it! I’ll have to make again to post on GreenLiteBites.
With the rooms now clean…
we made some Kale chips for the Raven’s game.
Seriously, I’m just a kale FREAK anymore. It’s in season right now and I can get loads super cheap at a local farm.
Kitchen is now clean!
Living room is not.
A little half time stroll.
It was a nail biter!
I went all out for dinner…
A little Beer Can chicken cures all.
Little Bean fits right into our asparagus loving family.
After dinner I boiled up a little stock.
I can’t waste chicken bones. I just can’t. Planning some classic chicken noodle soup tomorrow.
I also boiled a bunch of eggs for the week.
I am prepared!
The day ended with my "wine." A shot of Irish Cream in hot cocoa.
Is it wrong to use a Diego cup? ;)
