Good morning to you all! How’s it going so far today?
I’m going to be honest…it’s almost 9pm on Sunday night as I’m sitting to type this out and I’m a little pooped AND trying to pay attention to the Grammy’s, so today’s post may go a bit quick. Then again, it may not…we’ll see where it takes us!
Let’s start with Friday night…basically a combination of all of the best things ever.
We ordered takeout from DeFazio’s, popped open a bottle of wine, and caught up on some TV, including Thursday night’s episode of The Blacklist. OMG, do any of you watch that show?! The suspense is killingggg meeee…what happened that night?!?
Saturday morning started with some delicious egg sandwiches for breakfast, and then we were off to soccer for the little one.
Jay and I decided to take two cars to soccer so I could just leave right from there to take care of the grocery shopping for the week (I knew once I got back home I wouldn’t want to go back out again!).
I think we should be good to go for the week!
A little bit of Saturday afternoon was spent in the kitchen…I whipped up a batch of my favorite Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, and immediately put half in the freezer. For whatever reason, I love eating them frozen!
I also decided to make a batch of Anne’s Oatmeal Raisin Energy Bites
I modified mine slightly, subbing in almonds for the walnuts (hate walnuts…), and did about half raisins/half dates. They are super tasty, and I’ll be happy to have these for snacks during the week.
Saturday night was pretty tame, not much going on. We made dinner, and then ended up starting to watch Breaking Bad on Netflix.
I think the show will be pretty good, but I think I’m having a bit of a hard time totally getting into it. Any other thoughts on the series out there??
We were able to sleep in a bit on Sunday (til almost 8am!), and shortly after waking, there were some delicious omelets made, courtesy of the husband.
Mine was made with two eggs and filled with spinach, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and cheddar cheese. Gahhh, why don’t I make eggs more often?!
After breakfast, Jay went out to shovel the driveway in anticipation of the extra snow we’re getting (oh my god, make it stopppp) and Lucas was obsessed with watching out the window. He’d sit, stand, sit, knock and bang on the window shouting “Da DAAA!”
It was adorable.
While Lucas took his nap, I did my workout for the day (this old circuit workout – another good one!) and then Jay and I continued working on the basement that we had started on Saturday. I already told you guys that this was our main goal this weekend, and I am happy to report that we made some HUGE progress.
We got almost a solid hour and a half of working in before Lucas woke up, but thankfully, we had just about all of the crap out of the way at that point, so he was able to come down and hang out with us while we worked. Then again, he wanted right in on the action, too…
Already Daddy’s little helper. <3
So do you guys remember what the basement looked like a few weeks ago? Well, here’s our “not totally done, but we’re getting there” after…
And we’ve even got a great little spot carved out for our workouts. So excited!
We still have a lot of stuff that we need to get rid of, but we’ve got most of that organized and to the sides so that the room is a bit more functional. And, we’ve got some of Lucas’s rotated toys set up down there, so it’ll be an extra spot for him to play.
I can’t even tell you how GOOD it feels to get so much accomplished down there this weekend! It’s like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
But for now…I think it’s about time for me to wrap things up so I can get to watching these Grammy’s. I’ll catch you guys later on – have an awesome week!
