Back to Normal

in All Posts

Anyone else ready to go back to normal after the holiday weekend?  Meeeeee.  It’s so fun to stay up late and celebrate with pie and potatoes and wine and treats, but man, oh man – so ready to go back to normal.  Normal is good.


My mom and I played with Henry in the nursery this morning while the Husband made us this delicious breakfast spread. 


Fruit, eggs, zucchini and squash, and spicy soy chorizo.


And then we played some more.


Back on the theme of getting back to normal, my plans for the rest of the day include soaking up my last bit of mom time, picking up the house, and going for a run.  I fell off track with my training plan this week – I seem to have two great weeks followed by one lackluster week over and over again – and want to finish strong with a nice long run. 


Hope you have a great one, too!

    Ugh. I’m not excited about going back to normal. It means flying back to Chicago and a TON of school work for me… I’d rather stay home!

    Ah, I’m just the opposite! I want this holiday weekend to go on and on…lots of time hanging out on the couch, going out for meals, catching up with family and friends, and going for walks around the neighborhood.

    Going back to normal means less time and more busy-ness. So not ready!

    Can anyone help me find the post about the scarves you can buy that help women in other countries? I found Scarlet Threads but there was another one Caitlin posted about over the last month.

      I think that was it? I haven’t done a post about another scarf company.

    I agree with you in that normal is good and as much as we may complain about the ‘routine’ sometimes, at least it keeps us on track :). I went for a nice run this morning and it felt amazing! Enjoy your run and the QT with the mom while she’s around 🙂

    Ready to go back to normal food? For sure. Ready to go back to work/kids’ schedules/crazy weeknights? NAH, not so much 🙂

    Yeah, idk I’m definitely enjoying my time off! I am looking forward to getting back on track with my eats though. I have a big veggie filled meal in the crockpot right now to kick off a week of healthy eats with lots of leftovers for lunches!

    Some plans are 2 weeks build 1 week rest- sounds like that’s what you’re doing naturally!

    A little off topic, but I love your photos (and blog, of course!) and was wondering if you use an external flash for your food photos?

      I have one but nope.
