Weekend Wonderland

I still can’t believe that I get weekends off.  For years and years I had to work weekends.  Even over the summer with my job I had to work a handful of Saturdays.  So I still wake up on Saturday mornings full of relief that I get to stay in bed, or wake up early and let the AM hours be my oyster.

It’s been so fun hanging out with Brad all weekend.  We didn’t get to see much of each other with the work schedule I used to have.  On Saturday we went to the gym together.  We’re both pretty bad at committing to our lower body workouts so we decided to do it together.  I showed him a couple new exercises and he showed me a thing or two.  We’re both sore this morning (you know, the two mornings later kind of sore).

The last two Saturdays I woke up early before Brad did and got to cooking.  Two Saturdays ago I made pumpkin pancakes. MMMMMmmmmm.  I had two rounds.

First round was peanut butter and jelly.

Second round was yogurt, coconut, and walnuts.

And this Saturday I made french toast.  I made it into a sandwich with banana, peanut butter, and syrup.

Ahhhhhhhhh.  I savour every moment of my weekend because I am so grateful to have that time for me now :)

What do you do with your weekend mornings?  Sleep?  Workout?  Make a delicious breakfast?

    I definitely like to sleep in on my weekend mornings!

  2. On weekend mornings, we usually sleep in (that’s 8-9 am for us), have breakfast in bed, and I get to catch up with Twitter, Facebook, and my Google Reader. After that, we might go to our local farmer’s market on Saturday or the grocery store. On Sunday, all stores are closed, so we have to get some food while we can.

  3. I go all out with breakfast on the weekends. Its the only chance I get to make a fancy breakfast and I like to take advantage of it.

      all out like wine in a box all out? just trying to get where “all out” is on your fancy continuum :P haaaaaahaha I crack myself up

  4. I relax with coffee and cereal one morning, and the other I usually get up and work out. I’m not good at sleeping in anymore. I always feel like I’m wasting the day when I lay around in bed, so I usually pop up relatively early.

      I always feel like that too! But funny enough I read 3 blog posts this morning about how rest and sleeping is SO important … so I guess it’s not really waste is it :)

  5. Everyone has been making pancakes lately! Love your yogurt, coconut and walnut combo! :) My work weeks have been crazy busy lately so weekends have become my time to get in some tougher workouts and catch up on errands and such. The boyfriend and I used to make pancake and egg breakfasts semi-frequently but it’s been awhile since we last had one. Time to revive that tradition!

    Oh man, depends on the weekend. Sometimes I get up and escape for a run and sometimes I stay in my PJs and make yummy breakfasts. Love your different concoctions with your pancakes. You’re making me excited for my breakfast tomorrow morning already. :) ha!
