Good morning friends! I hope you are all ready to tackle the new week. Have a great Monday 🙂
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 😉
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 on “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?
