Monday Musings

Happy Monday!! They do exist…right?

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and feel nice and rested for the week ahead.

Our weekend started off great. We had a super fancy (not) at home date night on Friday complete with breakfast for dinner and Pitch Perfect 2, which lets face it, was dis-aca-pointing. The first one was so great. They should have just left that one alone.

Saturday, we had plans! We had a long list of things we were going to accomplish like cleaning house, doing lots of homework for Hubs, writing some fun blog posts for me, and getting things prepped for this week so we didn’t spend the whole week playing catch up like we usually do.

But…..none of that happened. We lazed around all day and accomplished z-e-r-o. Stupid Netflix.

And then to make us feel even better about our veg-out day, our pastor preached all about priorities and how if we don’t put God first in our lives, whatever we put before him becomes an idol. Have I ever spent an entire day simply reading God’s word? No. Did I feel discouraged and like there was no way I could ever be the Christian I want to be? Yes. But did God come down and shower me with His grace and remind me how sufficient He is even in my weakness? YES. God. Is. Good.

After church, we were both resolved to tackle that list. Well, Hubs didn’t really have a choice. He had two tests to take that day. Mom came over for lunch, and she helped motivate me while he was barricaded in the office. Apparently we’re distracting? Who knew?

One thing we did that made me super excited was prep a bunch of food for the week. We made a pan of roasted potatoes, a big salad, some soup that we divided up into individual portions so we can grab them for lunches during the week, and some of the easiest oatmeal bars ever. Seriously, bananas + instant oatmeal + bake for 15 minutes = breakfast for the week. My kind of recipe. It feels so nice to have some grab and go food options ready. Makes me feel like I’m ahead for once.

Hopefully, I can continue this streak of productivity. I still have a long to-do list, and I always feel better if I can keep checking things off instead of just adding things.

As long as I can stay away from Netflix, I should be good. 🙂

What did you do this weekend? Do you have a Sunday prep day or do you just wing it during the week?
