A 2 Soundtrack Sensational Sunday

Posted by 1 year ago 6 Comments 1634 views

This morning I was able to sleep until 8:30 — EIGHT THIRTY! This is unheard of at my house. If it’s not the kids waking me up at the butt crack of dawn it’s my stupid body, which is now trained to get up at  5 a.m., thanks to hitting the gym super early for the past three years. Not this morning […]

A More Than Sensational Anniversary, Mother’s Day AND Sunday!

Posted by 1 year ago 0 Comments 1439 views

I have so, so, SO much to share and only a few minutes before Game of Thrones, so I’m going to zip through the past few days. The past week has been an absolute blur! Last Monday I ended up driving 7 hours from Burlington, Vt., to Baltimore after my flight was canceled. It wasn’t a bad […]

Scenes From My Sensational Sunday!

Posted by 2 years ago 1 Comments 1704 views

I had an old fashioned Sensational Sunday and it’s was glorious! It all started bright and early hanging out with this leaping lizard. He’s really into jumping at the moment. The two of us hung out for a good hour before anyone else woke up. We cleaned and set up the Root-Vue Farm we got LAST […]

A Lazy, Yoga-Filled, Sensational Sunday!

Posted by 2 years ago 2 Comments 1715 views

This morning started bright and early with a game of Memory. Right after this conversation: Him: I’m killing it! Me: You’re killing it? Him: Yeah, I’m going to cream you. I snapped this… He cracks me up… when he’s not annoying the crap out of me. Later, I was inspired by these two things and […]

I Haven’t Lost It!

My Sunday kicked off with a local 5k. I haven’t run more than a mile in months so I was quite surprised at my 28:17 finish time. I actually finished 4th in the 30-39 age range out of 10! I’m far from a speed demon but I’m proud of myself for maintaining a sub 10-minute-mile pace. […]

A Laptop-Free Sensational Sunday

I had the best weekend! It all kicked off with a movie Friday night. A movie that I was enjoying (Spy) but my tired body took over and I was sleeping about half-way through. It was all good though, The Husband and I still got to spend some time together just hanging out. And truth be […]

There’s Nothing a Little Scream and a Doughnut Can’t Fix

Today was a bit of a roller coaster ride. It started out fantastic! I hit the ground running at 7 a.m. baking up a storm. I bought a big bag of kale last week so I could make Whole Wheat Chocolate-Kale Banana Muffins and I had the best helper. He doesn’t have the same attention span as […]

Waking Up Early on Sensational Sundays

Posted by 2 years ago 6 Comments 1685 views

Every day I wake up around 5 a.m. if I want to or not. It doesn’t matter what time I went to bed or what I have to do that morning.  This fairly new phenomenon is maddening! I used to be a sleeper with no problems but the kids and my early workouts have changed me forever. […]

My Sunday Prep Day

Posted by 2 years ago 5 Comments 1843 views

Happy Sensational Sunday! Today was a glorious mix of relaxing and preparing for the week, which kicked off with a cuddle session. My sleep schedule has been all off and although I’m one of those “lucky” people who easily fall asleep (mostly because I’m flat out exhausted) I normally wake up a few times a night and […]

WHAT a Weekend!

Posted by 2 years ago 10 Comments 2525 views

It all started Friday with a lunch in Frederick at an AMAZING Thai restaurant. Jen and I took the short road trip to visit an old friend. We got lost, almost ran out of gas, hit a crap-ton of traffic and chatted up a storm. It was a great afternoon even with all the mishaps. […]
