It rained like crazy yesterday morning which in my opinion, isn’t a bad thing on a Sunday (so long as it isn’t your wedding day or race day that is!). I didn’t rush to get up, I wasn’t planning to run and the dark of the rainy daylight made it perfect for getting back into bed after Pure Barre and breakfast.
I have been spending a lot of extra time relaxing back in my bed which is not my typical nature but I am embracing every second of it.
It’s easier now that my son is older actually. When the kids are little, you stand no chance of sleeping in or waking up at your leisure or heck, even just sitting down. Now though, my son sleeps so late (like I don’t even know him as my own because I never slept late in my life) and even when he wakes up, he hangs in his room so I can really do as I wish. I never could have imagined this back when he was a baby, toddler or even in elementary school. In fact, I find myself watching Max & Ruby and iCarly by myself while he is still asleep 🙂
What did I even do this weekend?! I swear it’s all a blur. I guess in between my awesome long run, catching up on work and shuffling my son to and from two separate Bar Mitzvah parties, I found time to go to the mall. I will talk more about some of my favorite beauty products tomorrow but today I will say that I spent some time with my friend Jill aka my Dior Makeup Artist (at Bloomingdales) who let me take a sneak peak in the drawer at the spring collection of colors which are slowly starting to arrive in stores.
And I finally went food shopping too. After going seven days without restocking, I actually didn’t even need that much to fill our kitchen.
Aside from a few random items that I picked up from Target, here’s what else I needed…
From Whole Foods:
- 2 Packages of Chicken Cutlets (for my son’s new favorite chicken)
- Applegate turkey, sliced at deli counter (for his lunch)
- White Sweet Potatoes
I couldn’t wait to roast up some white sweet potato wedges almost immediately after unpacking the groceries.
From Trader Joe’s:
- Regular baking potatoes
- Organic Spinach
- Watermelon < – I ate the container while unpacking the groceries
- Brussels Sprouts
- Brown Rice Medley
- Organic Pizza Crust
- Organic eggs
- 2 Jars Crunchy Chia & Flax Peanut Butter
- Carolina Gold Barbeque Sauce
- Sweet Chili Sauce
- Coffee K-Cups
Aside from maybe popping into a store for fresh fruit this week, my plan is to make what’s currently in our kitchen work for seven days again. Let’s see if I can do it!weekend stuff & groceries #traderjoes #wholefoods #foodshop #weekend #dior #makeup #fitfluential Click To Tweet
If you have kids, do they wake you up early or do they sleep late?
