A Day Of Children’s TV

Good morning friends! I hope you are all ready to tackle the new week. Have a great Monday πŸ™‚

Even though we weren’t in our apartment, we kept our our Sunday morning pancake/waffle tradition. Alex worked on making pancakes while I cooked a little bacon to enjoy as well. I paired it with a big glass of milk. When I was younger, my parents had a rule that all of the kids had to have a glass of milk with dinner to be sure we got enough calcium in our diets. I continued with that even through college and sometimes have it now. Side note – I did not realize I took a beer glass out of the cabinet when I grabbed it although I do like Hoegaarden on occasion.

After breakfast it was time for another walk! Gracie and Annie got very excited when they heard walk and were going a little crazy when we pulled out the leashes. These two dogs sure are spoiled while their mom and dad are away. Going out in the morning has been so nice and the park is empty except for a few people. I like going on walks but not feeling like everyone is on top of me.

When we got home, I read a little and planned the week ahead. I love spending just a few minutes on Sunday to plan what I have and check to see any big things that are coming in the week ahead. Annie was being adorable and following me around most of the morning. She had a lot of opinions on how I did my makeup yesterday πŸ˜‰


I feel like the morning flew by even though I didn’t do that much but I won’t complain. Alex wanted to grill leftover burgers from Friday night for lunch and I threw my plan of leftovers for lunch out the window. A burger just sounded better and a real grill has been a spoil for us so it was hard to resist. We paired it with leftover mashed potatoes and ate outside.

After lunch, I read for a bit and Alex wanted a little break from work so we turned on Spongebob. Yes we are 22 and 23 years old and watched some Spongebob. The only episodes on demand for free were the recent seasons and they were not as good as the ones from when we were kids we decided. Or we are too old to enjoy Spongebob, maybe a mix of both who knows. I was going to make some tea as a little pick me up but Alex suggested hot chocolate and I hopped on board. Alex said that his mug on the left and mine is on the right and describe us perfectly.


We sat outside a little bit before we headed out for dinner. Alex’s dad belongs to a gold club and part of the membership fee includes a certain amount of food each month. Since Mr. Anderson has been gone majority of the month he told us to go and have dinner. Being told to eat out for a free meal, count us in!! We headed over and opted to sit outside since it was nice. Alex and I enjoyed a glass of whiskey and Chardonnay respectively while talking. Our food came and it was good! I ordered steak fajitas and Alex had the crab cakes. Both of us really enjoyed our meals! The crab cakes were mostly meat which was great for him. I asked Alex Saturday night if we could have dessert at Forsgate (the golf club) and he said yes. We split the chocolate cake and it was so good. The piece was huge and I have no idea how one person would be able to eat it themselves.

When we got home, I did a face mask while we watched a movie. We were in the mood for a mindless movie so Alex put onΒ “Scooby-Doo”. For some reason, we were all about children’s tv shows and movies yesterday. How cute is it that Freddie Prinze Jr. (Fred) and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Daphne) are married in real life? They are a cute celebrity couple in my opinion. After a bit we were both tired and decided to turn the movie off and head up to bed.

Question of the day: Did you have any rules growing up that you still follow today or have made for your kids?

  1. Those dogs are so cute! My parents also pushed us to drink milk at dinner, and when we were little my parents were sticklers for polite behavior and using self control. Once those skills became natural parts of our personality, my parents didn’t need to make or enforce many rules!

    1. That’s a great way to instill being polite and keeping yourself in control! What little kid doesn’t love stickers, I would definitely be polite if it meant I got a sticker when I was younger. Have a great day Kerri πŸ™‚

  2. Looks like you enjoyed some good food this weekend! Love your weekend breakfasts!
    We always had chores growing up and would have to get all of them done before we were allowed to do anything on the weekend. It sounds harsh, but I’m still like that today – I make sure to clean my house once a week!
    Enjoy your day!

    1. Yes definitely a bunch of good food was had this weekend. I don’t think it sounds harsh but maybe if I was a kid I would feel differently! It probably taught you that even if it’s not fun, there are some responsibilities you have to take care of before you are able to do what you want. It’s not a horrible idea I don’t think.

      Thanks Erinn! Have a wonderful Monday πŸ™‚

  3. My fiance just LOVES kids cartoons! I think we both swooned a little when we heard they were rebooting DuckTales. I’m trying to remember back to rules my parents had for us, but oddly enough I can’t remember any! I think I may have been the spoiled younger sister in many ways.

  6. Those mugs are the best! We only had an antenna for my young childhood so I did not want to watch TV. We never had any rules though. I don’t really turn the TV on my for toddler now and I plan to be ‘that’ mom with the TV rules as he gets younger.

    1. I feel like we’re spoiled now a days with such easy access to TV compared to those who grew up with antenna’s on TVs growing up. Girl be “that” mom!! TV is not meant to be a babysitter for your children and I will probably be that mom too when I have kids.

  7. Not sure if this counts, but one of my mom’s “rules” growing up was to take off socks from our feet in a specific way so that they were never inside out (she must have really disliked my brothers and my socks being inside out in the wash!)… i still do it that exact way every time i take off my socks lol! Super random 😁
