A Sensationally Clean Garage Sunday!

5 Comments 1296 views

My Sensational Sunday started with a very grumpy 2-year-old who was NOT happy about my decision to keep the TV off.

He got over it.

I needed to hit the ground running. The house has been in a constant state of disarray.

I started cleaning and noticed it got awfully quiet so I headed upstairs and found these two bonding on the top bunk.

They have been so stinkin’ cute together lately I can hardly stand it.

And the 8-year-old is so fun. He’s been working on a comic called Epic Ninja.

I love that he loves being creative. :)

I left the boys at home and headed to yoga for the first time in weeks.

I’m really trying to make an effort to go weekly. I love how I feel after class.

When I got home I made myself my new favorite breakfast: a Spinach Egg Cake — click here for more details.

After breakfast it was garage cleaning time. We’ve been wanting to do this for months!

Ryan and I were on car duty.

We cleaned the insides at the house and then headed to the car wash.

This little guy stayed home with Daddy and was awfully happy when I came home and made some snacks.

Afterwards the 2-Year-Old kept walking around the house and saying, “Rya, hug!”

20131103_J

I told you. So stinkin’ cute!

It took all day, but boy was it worth it.

20131103_K

There’s nothing like a clean garage!

For dinner I made pork chops, baked potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower.

20131103_L

All the stars must have been aligned because everyone ate without complaint!

That never happens.

After dinner tickle wrestling ensued.

Then back to chores.

Why yes, that is the 2-year-old playing “I Robot” in the background with the laundry basket.

The Husband got ready to leave for tennis practice and I snapped this after saying, “You know, your fans miss the bird.

20131103_O

LMAO

I gave the kids an early bath.

And then we made banana soft-serve.

The boys had banana-strawberry-blueberry but I made myself banana-cranberry and topped it with cocoa nibs.

HOLY YUM!

So good.

The 8-year-old and I watched How The Earth Works and we pulled out the globe to take a look at Hawaii.

20131103_S

I love how interested he is in things!

He went to bed and here I am attempting to snack smart with my pistachios from NatureBox.

I can’t remember if I told you but I won a 3-month membership at BlogHer this year. I didn’t think I was going to like them but I do. It’s fun getting a box of goodies delivered to the house every month.

Now I’m waiting for The Husband to come home so I can watch The Walking Dead. He’s usually just a few minutes late giving us enough of a buffer to fast-forward through the commercials. Then we catch up about 10 minutes from the end. It’s nice.

I needed a day like today. I feel motivated and ready to tackle the week!

Hope you had a great weekend!

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