It felt like the weekend since I had both kiddos home today, and my Dad even stopped by for a few hours to keep us (me) company and play a bit. Max woke up early to keep me company with my morning workout & he decided that I needed to run in addition to my cardio workout video. He is quite convincing, and I do like to run, so we added another mile-ish on the treadmill.
The highlight of the day was that Max saw the garbage truck AND the recycling truck pickup AND then we saw the school buses at the Elementary school across the street twice. It was pretty amazing.
Super smiley Eleanor thought it was silly that she should take anything longer than a 20 minute nap today.
And she also wants to show you she has been working on her abs. Seriously, the girl tries to do sit-ups all the time.
Onto the most exciting part of my Fridays... meal planning for the upcoming week! I actually do look forward to planning this out, if I haven't mentioned that before. Last week was sort of a flop in terms of sticking to the plan, but we rearranged things to work (we did not run out of food or anything crazy).
Here's what I am thinking for this week... the thing we are making for Foodie Husband this week is French Onion Soup. He's pretty pumped to try that one. Tuesdays seem to be turning into taco night.
Saturday: brunch-grilled cheese
French Onion soup w/toasts and salad (or swap for Sunday eve)
Sunday: brunch-pizza w/pesto and roasted tomatoes
Pancakes with berries, almond butter and bananas
Monday: leftovers / spinach salad + tofu
Tuesday: chicken verde / black bean tostadas
Wednesday: baked chicken and green beans w/lemon-dijon-tahini sauce
Thursday: cereal night
Friday: leftovers / frozen pizza / salad
I ended my day the best way.. baby cuddles with my chocolate nighttime treat.
