Saturday mornings *might* be my most favorite time of the week.
I think this is because both Kevin & I are working parents, so Saturday mornings symbolize sleeping later and not having any where to go.
We LOVE unscheduled Saturday mornings.
In the Fall, Kate played soccer, so for a few weeks, she had games on Saturday mornings.
This Spring she played T-Ball, so for the past couple months have had games on Saturday mornings.
But now, the season is over, so we are back to our regularly scheduled lazy Saturday mornings & I love them. I cherish these lazy Saturday mornings and I know when my kids are grown, I will look back on these Saturdays with fondness.
Here is what our lazy Saturdays look like....
It really starts off on Friday night, when Kevin & I set up the girls cereal on the kitchen table.
On Friday night we set out a bowl of cereal for each of the girls.
We started doing this about a year ago & it has bought us at least another 30 minutes of sleep on Saturday mornings.
In the fridge, we have 2 glasses of milk poured so that in the morning they can reach their milk & pour it into their cereal. (We aren't winning any Parents of the Year awards here....but this is what we do)
After the girls have their cereal, they usually come back upstairs & jump in our bed. We watch Yard Crashers. They love it & so do we!
Then, Luke usually wakes up, so I nurse him. After I finish nursing, we all head downstairs.
While he snacks on Cheerios, the coffee is brewing.
Coffee. My BFF. Can't function without it.
(LOVE my Anthropologie mug. LOVE.
On Saturday mornings, I like to make fun breakfasts, like cinnamon rolls, coffee cake or my Monkey Bread.
Kevin is usually in the backyard mowing the lawn or doing yard work:
While the fun breakfast is in the oven, we watch The Pioneer Woman.
The girls LOVE this show. They call it "Charlie The Ranch Dog"
I *try* to catch up on laundry on Saturdays, so there is always a load of clean laundry on the couch that I fold while we watch.
Love these lazy mornings.
After we eat our "Fun" Breakfast, the girls usually color.
I know once the kids are older we won't have lazy Saturday mornings like this because we will have activities, sports, etc.
Our Saturday mornings in the Summertime look a little different, we usually walk or ride bikes downtown to Starbucks, the bagel shop or the Farmers Market.
I really do cherish these lazy Saturdays during the school year when we have no morning plans & can spend the morning at home in our pj's :)
Hope you are having a great Saturday & having a great start to the 3 day weekend.
I am thankful for those who sacrificed their lives protecting our country.
What do your Saturday mornings usually look like?
I am LOVING all your responses/votes on this post for what dress I should wear to the wedding next month.I will ABSOLUTELY let you guys know which ones I order. Maybe I will try them on & have you vote on the finalists :)
This morning I saw this one that is now almost half off. I might need to add it to the list!
I'm going order dresses later on this weekend! Thanks for your input!
