My Sunday is off to a pretty rockin’ start.


Henry woke up at 7 AM, I fed him, and then I prayed really, really hard that he would fall back asleep for at least thirty minutes.  He slept for an extra hour.  Hallelujah!


It is sunny and warm outside… and we are lucky enough to have chilly air conditioning. 


And we had breakfast in bed! 


See what I mean?  A great morning, indeed.


Sunday breakfast in bed is our favorite tradition.  It sounds incredibly lazy, but for the past few years, every Sunday, one of us wakes up, makes breakfast and coffee or tea, and we spend a few hours relaxing.  Incredibly lazy but incredibly awesome, right?


This morning, I woke up and decided that we needed to continue our tradition.  It’s fallen by the wayside for the last few weeks, but I don’t want it to disappear completely.  Henry can join in!


I have to say that making breakfast while prepping the tea, feeding the dogs, and keeping an eye on Henry was challenging.  The eggs were cold by the time I brought the tray into the bedroom.  Whoops.


Want to know the secret to great sunny-side up or over easy eggs?  There’s three things to remember:  one, the pan must be very hot.  Two, you should crack the egg close to the pan – not from high up in the air.  And lastly, don’t fuss with the egg.  Move it as little as possible (to flip once in the case of over easy or to slide off the pan for sunny-side up). 


I think our big activity of the day is going to be hitting up the grocery store(s) <— Gotta go to multiple places to get the best deals!

    What a nice tradition, somehow we never do that! Glad Maggie seems to be adjusting well 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your day!

    That’s how I make my eggs! And I usually have to go to a couple grocery stores too, although I’ve figured out how to get just about everything from Trader Joes, since it’s the cheapest of the ones I go to and the closest walking distance!

    I just wanted to let you know I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I’ve really enjoyed reading all of your fitness and nutrition tips. You’ve inspired me to try some new things in my own life, and I really appreciate it.

    My husband and I are also planning to start trying for a baby in the next year or so, and I’ve been nervous about maintaining my healthy lifestyle throughout and after pregnancy. I really admire your success, and am enjoying reading about your experience.

    Thanks for being inspirational!

    What a great tradition 🙂

    Aw I love that traditions. Breakfast in bed is such a fun thing. I have noticed that food taste better when you are wearing pajamas. 🙂

    You know, my husband and I have NEVER had breakfast in bed! I guess it’s because I usually wake up at 5 AM, and he’s not up until closer to 8. I think we need to try and make it happen next weekend though! 🙂

    Hot eggs are overrated anyway. Good job multitasking! 🙂

    I have the same bedding! Love it. Ikea FTW!

    I love that tradition – we don’t do breakfast in bed but always try to keep Sunday as our ‘low key’ day – sleep in, make (or go out for) brunch and just take it easy. It’s a great reengergizing day!
