Good morning! I’ve been up since 5:30 am feeding a hungry baby and now I’m wide awake and ready for a Sunday funday!
I’m also very excited because I just ordered these shoes and can’t wait to try them on. I don’t know about you but I’m very into online shopping…except when you have to make returns. I hate that.
Yesterday was a busy day in the wakefield household. You see, having a new baby means lots of laundry because lots of poop and pee and spit up. So, it was a very convenient time for our washer to break…NOT. Sam thinks it’s my fault because I shoved a huge comforter and pillow in there but I think it’s time was just up. So we took Harry to Home Depot yesterday and let him pick out the new washer. He did a good job and didn’t even pick the most expensive one…win! He also picked a dryer so we got that too…you know you’re grown up when you get excited about a new appliance.
Yesterday morning I also attended my first Alchemy class in what feels like a year (I think it’s been like 3 months?). It was hard and I realized my core is SO weak after having Harry (Had to do planks from my knees!). I took it easy, used lighter weights, and modified movements I wasn’t comfortable with. It was really nice to get in a group setting and get in a good sweat. But holy cow am I sore today…a good sore though.
This morning it is freaking freezing out so I decided to skip my Costco Pumpkin muffin and make a large bowl of oatmeal instead. I was feeling nice and spicy so I zipped that bowl up with some lovely flavors. It looked a little something like this:
1/2 cup of oats
Large sprinkle of tumeric
Large sprinkle of cinnamon (Vietnamese from Penzy’s…only cinnamon you should ever buy)
*I never measure my spices, I just dump them in*
Handful of crasins
I topped this with some homemade pumpkin butter and local real honey. YUM. I always forget how much I love oats until I eat them. Nice and warm, perfect for a chilly fall day.
Speaking of chili, I love chili so much but am trying not to eat it on account of beans and breastfeeding. So today I’m hoping to prep my other fave fall soup from PaleOMG. This soup is so easy to make and I buy the already chopped butternut squash. HIGHLY recommend. I’m also planning on making something in the slow cooker because I haven’t used that once this fall, some chocolate chip cookies, and overnight golden milk oats because now I’m on the oat train. Oh, and maybe some fun fetti donuts!
Sunday’s are normally for Football but not today. Since our washer isn’t going to arrive until Nov 6th, I’m using my parents washer to do laundry a couple times a week (I feel like a college student). So today we will be making the trek to Hudson for laundry, some Harry introductions to friends, and *hopefully* a nice walk at the State Park. Yahoo! Sounds like a fun filled Sunday if you ask me!
Now I gotta go #2 because I had coffee and oats and that’s a deadly combo…TMI but who cares I’m sure you’re about to poo too (pretty sure Harry’s pooping right now too).
Have a lovely Sunday my friends. Thanks for reading, I appreciate you all.
