Yesterday was a really good day!  This was extra nice before the day before, well, sucked.  The entire family slept poorly – even Maggie! – and I was exhausted.  Add two major toddler temper tantrums (one in public because I removed Henry from the shopping cart… He doesn’t even LIKE the shopping cart!), and I was D-O-N-E.  So yesterday being chill and easy felt oh-so-good.  Nothing super special happened – it was just calm and enjoyable.



Breakfast was an omelet with spinach and peppers plus some grapes.



After my swim, I had a banana in the car on the way to Henry’s little toddler gymnastics class, which he adores.  Before each lesson, they go around the circle and ask the kids to introduce themselves and their adult, and Henry LOVES to say, “My name is Henwy Boyle and dis is Mama Boyle!”  Kills me every single time. <3



Another car snack – I drove the Husband into the office.  More car trouble!  Ugh.




Lunch was a egg white and mustard sandwich with a lovely salad.  This salad is actually from our backyard garden tree thingy!  I owe you guys a post about this.  I truly cannot believe it’s producing plants.


Yesterday was such a good one because, while the morning was kind of hectic, the afternoon was super chill.  We had a big thunderstorm, and Henry and I sat in front of an open water and watched the rain for a while… It was lovely.



Dinner was black beans, beets, and potatoes.  Simple but good!

And for dessert – four Snickerdoodles (the box LIES when it says a serving is 2!) and a glass of almond milk.


Did you have a good day yesterday, too?  Was it good because something BIG and AMAZING happened or just because it was QUIET and PEACEFUL?

    Well… the day was kind of bad when I got home from work and realized I never actually plugged in my crockpot, and had to throw out the rack of ribs I had in there! But I whipped up a quick & tasty dinner, so all was not lost. I also made it back to the gym for the first time since my honeymoon! Today my upper body is SORE 🙂

    I have a fussy baby right now, so yesterday was a little trying, but there were some highs as well. Watching Aiden play in the kiddie pool outside melts my heart.

    Trader Joes has GF snickerdoodles that I don’t know about?!?! Holy heck! I hope that’s not just an East Coast thing!

    I love most Thursdays because it’s girl’s night. Last night I had an incredible jalapeno margarita and chatted with my girlfriends – it was fantastic!

    So glad you had a nice calm day after a hectic one. Tantrums are never fun! The egg and mustard is an interesting combination. I’ve never thought to combine the two; might have to try that some day bc I love both!
    Have a great weekend!

    That sounds like a rough day. Good thing life made up for it with a better day! Yesterday was just kind of “meh.” I feel like on the weekdays I just get in a rut with going to work, coming home and working out, showering, making dinner, studying, cleaning up after dinner, packing things up and getting ready for the next day. I mean, I’m able to get everything done, but it’s so…well, meh!

    Quiet and peaceful pretty much always trumps something major happening. The major thing fades, but that quiet and peaceful feeling lasts so much longer.
