Did you forget about Daylight Savings? Because we sure did!


So confused when I woke up and all of our phones and clocks were conflicting (not sure why my iPhone didn’t sync up right away). 


The lost hour didn’t stop us from enjoying our favorite Sunday morning ritual – staying in bed for hours, browsing the web, listening to music, reading, and petting the pups.  Better enjoy this laziness while it lasts, right?


Although I didn’t unglue myself for three epic hours, the Husband managed to find his way to the kitchen to make smoothies.  He’s currently reading Husband-Coached Childbirth (one of the natural birth Bradley Method books) and is on the section about ‘lovingly assisting’ the pregnant lady with healthy eating.  I can’t wait ‘til he gets to the back rubs chapter… hah!  I plan to do a complete review of the Bradley Method down the line (and again after birth, of course), but so far, we’re both really liking the holistic, relationship-centered philosophy.  There’s a lot of homework involved, though.


Anyway – back to the smoothie.  In the mix: soy milk, protein powder, coconut oil, spinach.


And later, Breakfast #2. This is my new favorite combo – banana, sunflower butter, and pine nuts. Mmm.  With buttered toast.


Not sure what the day has in store, but it is rather lovely out.  Hope you have a fabulous Sunday.


What’s your ideal Sunday morning ritual?

    I also love to stay in bed for hours and watch a movie or surf the web…..but that rarely happens since I have 2 little ones 🙂 Yes, enjoy it while you can! It will become a major luxury once BabyHTP is born!

    Coffee and a vegan muffin with Earth Balance enjoyed sitting on my balcony and watching the rowers on the river outside my apartment. Wisdom of the dream workshop today! Can’t wait for that! Have a good Sunday!

  • Jessica @ The Process of Healing March 11, 2012, 12:50 pm

    Such a sweet hubbie!!! And I am in LOVE with your Sunday morning ritual!

  • Shannon March 11, 2012, 12:55 pm

    Unfortunately, I work every other Sunday. But on the Sundays I’m off, it always feels like an extra bonus day! I sleep in, eat or go to brunch, take a spinning class, do my laundry, etc. Definitely a day for playing catch up while still relaxing.

  • Sana March 11, 2012, 1:11 pm

    I actually woke up feeling great, hopefully this does not bite me come monday morning!

  • Nena March 11, 2012, 1:18 pm

    Sleeping in. When I finally get up I make a pot of espresso coffee (LaVazza!) and sit on the sofa watching Law & Order or Cold Case re-runs! love it…

  • Linz @ Itz Linz March 11, 2012, 1:32 pm

    Sleep longer than usual, wOrkout when I want, cook a fabulous breakfast! Love not being on a schedule during weekends!

  • Ebernst March 11, 2012, 1:41 pm

    I love lazy Sundays! However, I’m loving my new trend of early morning Sunday long runs and then laying in bed drinking coffee (and gatorade/water) afterwards!

  • Eileen March 11, 2012, 2:10 pm

    Your bread looks so tasty and thick cut, what kind is it???

    I want some!

  • Amber K March 11, 2012, 2:15 pm

    Sunday morning church is my favorite ritual, although to be honest I haven’t been able to get there in a couple of weeks. Too much going on!

    I actually changed my clock last night and was pleasantly surprised this morning that everything else changed itself. And that for some reason I woke up an hour earlier than normal so it synced right along with the time change. Why I did, I have no idea. But I’ll take it!

  • J. March 11, 2012, 2:20 pm

    I slept in day which always leaves me flustered all day. Just will read my day away.

    I’m curious what time you eat each of your meals?

  • Alyssa @ Fit and Fun in Third March 11, 2012, 2:26 pm

    Lounging around in my PJ’s and a healthy homemade breakfast before heading out for a workout! Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

  • Hillary March 11, 2012, 2:49 pm

    I’m usually annoyingly productive on the weekends, but I love being lazy. I made sure to get some laziness in this morning—45 minutes reading in bed, made French toast for my boyfriend and me, and went for a long, leisurely walk. Perfection!

  • Leah @ Chocolate and Wild Air March 11, 2012, 4:08 pm

    Sleeping in, and waking up with a big mug of coffee and a hearty breakfast! Interesting that you put coconut oil in your smoothie – I’ll have to try that

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 11, 2012, 4:11 pm

    Homework?! Well, I guess if it leads to you getting a smoothie without lifting a finger, it’s pretty good homework! 😉

  • Katie @ Soulshine and Sassafras March 11, 2012, 4:15 pm

    My dad’s in town every Sunday morning, and we always go out for brunch and shop at my local farmers market.

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats March 11, 2012, 4:25 pm

    Hahahaha maybe you can find him more books like that! Especially ones that emphasize back and foot rubs…

  • Lindy Katherine March 11, 2012, 4:47 pm

    Church day for us…this one Sunday a year it’s always kind of difficult to get up and get going.

    • Katie @ Katie Without Restrictions March 12, 2012, 12:47 am

      It’s always tough for us on this particular Sunday too. This morning I was home by myself, which makes it even harder for me to get up and going, plus I had to be there by 8:30 for a class we’re taking! Ugh… I made it though 😉

  • Becca @ Blueberry Smiles March 11, 2012, 5:02 pm

    Coffee and ny times in bed…and then the Sunday morning farmers market. And yes, I forgot about daylight savings too- thank goodness for my phone automatically syncing!

  • Kayla @ The Best Things March 11, 2012, 5:40 pm

    I’m years away from marriage and babies and I still say I’m saving up my sleep for the future. I do love a good sleep in!

  • Jo March 11, 2012, 5:42 pm

    I work a few hours every Sunday(the joy of student jobs!) but I have a nice ritual: making an omlet and a big, colorful salat for me and my sister/flatmate.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife March 11, 2012, 5:44 pm

    I love sleeping in on Sunday mornings….BEST time ever!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin March 11, 2012, 6:35 pm

    I never really sleep in, but I love lazing around in the morning, making a great breakfast, doing the crossword, and then going for a run!

  • Kath March 11, 2012, 8:33 pm

    Love husband supported nutrition 🙂 Matt has been making a good effort too!

  • Katie @ Katie Without Restrictions March 12, 2012, 12:46 am

    Our standard Sunday mornings involve several hours at church; we usually do a class or serve in the nursery during one of the services, fellowship in between, and then attend the other service. A few years ago I wouldn’t have imagined myself doing this ~ I grew up going to church, but it was always in for service and right back out. I love this new-to-us routine! My Sundays also usually consist of two big cups of coffee ~ a special treat compared to my usual small cup on other days 😉

  • Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) March 12, 2012, 7:31 am

    I really need to make/eat plain toast w/ butter more. I hardly ever think to do this with my breakfast but yours always looks so good.

    Sundays we typically go to church, lunch out with my family, run a few errands and then plop on the couch for some serious TV watching and a Sunday afternoon nap. So relaxing. 🙂

  • Katy @ HaveYouHurd March 12, 2012, 2:38 pm

    What kind of bread do you buy? It always looks SO GOOD!

    P.S. My friend’s eye phone went BACK an hour on Daylight savings! It eventually fixed itself, but we were pretty sure the iPhone was just trying to get us to stay at the bar longer.

  • Emma March 12, 2012, 3:59 pm

    Wake up and have coffee with my family, take a nice walk along the water, stop to have lunch at a restaurant, and go for a long run… Wish I could do this everyday!

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) March 13, 2012, 10:56 pm

    We don’t do Daylight savings where I live … strange, I know 🙂
