A Perfect Mix

by Lauren on May 20, 2012

After a long but wonderful day yesterday, we decided to keep things a little more low key today and get things done around the house. 

I always say the perfect weekends are a balance between fun, relaxation and productiveness. This weekend intertwined all three of these things. 

Sunday's are the only day of the week that I allow myself to wake naturally.  As much as I love waking up early and having the entire morning, I think it's important to let yourself have at least one day when you let your body make the decision as far as how much rest it needs. 

Usually on these days, it's 6:30 or 7:00 and today it fell more on the later end which I was just fine with. 

I usually get out of bed first and let Toly sleep a little longer before I call him down for breakfast. 

Oats for me today.  Whipped Banana Oats with berries, Greek yogurt, almond butter and a little granola on top.  

We always eat breakfast together on Sunday mornings and just relax into the morning.  It really is one of my favorite times during my week. 

After breakfast, we spent a few hours cleaning the house and then ran some errands.  The rest of the day was had doing yard work (well more for Toly) and I am happy to say I FINALLY have my garden ready. 

All it needs are the plants which I hope to get this week. 

So housework, yard work, grocery shopping…definitely productive.  We broke around 5:00 to enjoy the weather on a nice walk around the neighborhood. 

When we got home, it was dinnertime and salmon was calling our names. 

Romaine, Cabbage, Cucumber, Feta, Grilled Asparagus, Peaches and Grilled Salmon 

The salad was a beauty.  I absolutely love grilled peaches and salmon together and often make this salad during the summer. 

It was such a great weekend and I hope it was for you as well. 

This week *should* be short but I leave on Friday for Boston and I still have quite a bit to do.  For now though, I'm just going to enjoy the rest of my down time and be ready to get a jump on things tomorrow. 


Do you have a garden?  What should I plant this year?
