Itâ€™s a fact of parenthood: when the kid goes down for a nap, you go into overdrive (or underdrive and go back to sleepâ€¦). The babe is napping! You can do ANYTHING you want!
As Henry drifted off into dreamland, I debated: Did I want to read more of my book or bake a snack? I decided to bake.
If youâ€™ve never made Oh She Glows 5 Ingredient No Bake Vegan Date Squares, you must! They are SO tasty and so, so easy. I add chia seeds + vanilla extract to the base (making it 7 ingredients, I guessâ€¦). Honestly, I think Iâ€™m going to have to freeze the remainder of the batch or else they will be gone by tonight.
Behind the scenes:
Photography happened after naptime was over, of course.
Back to my blissful mommy alone timeâ€¦ His nap actually lasted much, much longer than I expected it to, so I ended up having time to both bake AND read, cementing this morning as the. most. awesome. Saturday. ever.
I am currently reading Gretchen Powellâ€™s new young adult novel Terra, and although I want to dedicate an entire blog post to the book when Iâ€™m done, let me say that it is simply AWESOME so far.
Love dystopian novels? Me too! Check out Six Novels About Dystopias.
Eventually, Henry woke up, and he was all smiles. We decided to take the dogs for a walk. This is how we walk both dogs in the winter.
Henry wears footed pajamas and a $5 consignment snow suit, and I belt my jacket around the both of us â€“ itâ€™s kind of ridiculous, but it works.
Baby, itâ€™s cold outside!
What are you guys doing this lovely Saturday morning? Recovering from the holidays? Traveling? Reading? Baking? Any running going on? My long run is tomorrow!
