You know those days where you feel like you’ve spent all of your time working on something, yet barely have anything to show for it? Yes, yesterday felt like one of those days…I’ll explain in a minute. But first, I have to share yesterday’s amazing breakfast sandwich.
On Saturday when I went to the Farmers Market, I picked up a loaf of sourdough bread (one of Jay’s favorites). So after a quick grocery shop early yesterday morning (done and out of the way!), Jay and I tag-teamed some breakfast sandwiches using the fresh bread.
My sandwich was made up of a fried egg, provolone cheese, and turkey bacon, and then we pressed the sandwiches on our panini press. Seriously, sooooo good.
Shortly after breakfast, I got in a workout…a yoga + pilates workout to be exact. I finally got a chance to try out the prenatal yoga DVD that I bought back in January, and I liked it. The session was about 30 minutes long, and it did a great job of proving just how badly I need to do more yoga. Holy crap, were my muscles tiiiiiiiight.
I followed it up with three of the 10-minute sessions of my pilates DVD (standing, core, and flexibility). I honestly can’t even tell you the last time I worked out for an hour, but it felt good to do it while I had the time and didn’t feel rushed.
Cody was there to watch me the whole time.
Once the workout was complete, it was time to tackle my big project for the day…cleaning out our spare room to prepare to make it the nursery.
Believe it or not, these photos actually show progress. I know…it’s sad. The majority of my time was spent going through the closet and dresser, cleaning out old clothes to either throw away, donate, or attempt to sell back.
Luckily, I’ve got all of that part just about squared away, so now it’s just a matter of clearing out the rest of what’s in there to make room for all of Baby Tooth’s stuff. On Saturday we ordered the rest of our nursery set, so with that coming in soon – along with a good amount of clothes for our little man already – we’ve really got to get things rolling!
After spending the majority of my day working on all of that mess, we eventually called it quits and made some dinner.
The pan on the right was some diced up sweet potatoes and chicken sausage, and the left was this bag of fire roasted veggies from Trader Joe’s, which was actually quite delicious. The bag, however, said it was six servings…apparently Jay and I are pigs, because we’re getting three out of it?
I decided to just throw everything all together to make for an easy, one-dish meal, and thankfully it all went together fantastically.
The sauce on the veggies had somewhat of a sweet taste to them, which I loved paired with the sweet potatoes. This was definitely a great meal, and one that I’ll be enjoying for leftovers sometime this week at lunch.
With yesterday being St. Patrick’s Day and all, you’d definitely never realize it in this house, haha. I don’t think we had one hint of Irish-ness happening, but hey, no biggie. I guess I’ll just have to celebrate it twice as much next year when my little leprechaun is here.
So this week is already looking pretty busy on our end…three evenings so far that are already booked after work, which means I’m really going to have to be good about getting to bed at a decent time at night so I’m not as exhausted feeling as last week. Tonight is our first busy evening…heading to mom and dad’s house for dinner and haircuts for us!
How was everyone’s weekend? Do anything fun? Any fun and/or exciting St. Patty’s Day stories??
