You know what I detest after a weekend away? Laundry. You know what I absolutely love? Restocking the fridge! Something about a clean slate to start from gets me excited to load it up with fresh, healthy foods.
Did I totally just give away that I’m an old fuddy-duddy or what?
…If not, I just said fuddy-duddy which more than confirms it.
Anywho (keeping with the fuddy-duddy theme here)… I was psyched to go load up on the good stuff, but just to guarantee I started the week off on a healthy foot, I hit up the gym first for this AMRAP.
My friend Jen puts together some of my favorite workouts and this one kicked my out-of-shape bootay. It was awesome and even better because I can feel it today. Then we were off to load up on veggies at Josh’s.
Hailey is in a notebook phase right now and I think it’s pretty dang adorable (don’t I always). She carries around her “list book” and a pen, asking me what we need to get, then writing some scribble and H’s down on paper. The best part? It keeps her occupied while I buy all the veggies.
After some unloading and sorting, my fridge was happy and full.
Post nap time was spent on the swing set until Hailey offered to help me with dinner prep.
Please don’t call child services. It’s a butter knife. And I was right beside her. And she impressed me like WOAH. Taking the ends off green beans kept her focused for about 20 minutes, time enough for me to take care of the rest of the prep work and she was SO proud of herself afterwards. Especially when she helped me cook the beans for her dinner.
It was one of those pat-yourself-on-the-back parenting moments which are nice to have, especially when I look back at the pictures and realize I forgot to brush her hair all day. Food > Appearance.
With a full fridge, dinner grilled up nicely.
And somehow by the time we ate and cleaned up, it was 9:15. Where does the day go?
What is you least favorite task after returning from a weekend away?
Favorite in season produce right now? I can’t get enough rainbow chard- SO beautiful!
