Today was not only St. Patrick’s Day but also my baby’s 2nd. Birthday. Yesterday we had a houseful of grandparents and celebrated with the family.


Can you believe it? Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago I was telling you I was preggers? Then in a flash he was here and before I knew it I was running a half on his 6-month-birthday. And was this really a year ago? A YEAR?

Unbelievable! This is why I try to make the best of most days.

Refocusing on Sunday’s reminds me to do that.

Today started with some green oatmeal.


It was the 7-year-old’s idea and I was totally game. So I made “The Most Amazing Bowl of Oatmeal EVER” but instead of just mashing the banana I pureed it with a big handful of spinach.

It worked like a charm!


After breakfast we built castles with Grandma…


…before I headed out for a run and took my #YogaADay shot.


When I got back I made a post-run snack for my #DailyYogurt.


Let me tell you — pear, pecans and maple syrup made a great yogurt topping!

The rest of the morning we spent playing Wii. I totally kicked butt at sword play.


After Grandma and Grandpa left, we decided to celebrate Little Bean’s birthday just the 4 of us at PF Chang’s for a late lunch/early dinner.


It was so much fun. We decided to run a few errands and do a little shopping as a family, and then we came home, settled in…


…and watched “Wreck-It Ralph.” I liked it! Although, I missed the middle to give Birthday Boy a bath.

I didn’t get as much done as I normally do on Sundays (cleaning-wise), but I made batch of hard-boiled eggs, most of the laundry is done and I am ready to start this week.

Now I’m watching “Walking Dead” and then it’s early to bed for me. I’m making an effort all week to be upstairs by 11 p.m. I’ve been staying up way too late and getting up way too early. It’s starting to take its toll.

Hope you had a great weekend!

    Birthday are always gives more enthusiasm to ourselves be it on Sunday also. The main aim is to enjoy the time with all family.

    Hi Roni! I am still following you EVERYDAY! I just find you so motivating. I love when you detail what you have done in a day especially weekends so I can look and say, “well if she can do that, I can do it too”…
    I have started my own blog type page on FB.
    Can I do a shout out to your site?
    I always share it with people but thought it would be a great place to really share to many.
    Let me know as I would like your permission prior to doing so.
    Thanks for keeping me motivated!

    My twin boys would like to wish Evan a happy birthday. They recently turned three and thought it was pretty cool that another little boy got to have a birthday party too :)
