Super Saturday Style

This is our Super Saturday Style for this weekend:

Woke up late :) Thank you Noah and Elijah for letting Mumma sleep til 8!

I meandered down the hall to see what they were up to and they were playing so nice a quiet. However how did they make this humongous mess without me hearing it?!

So, time to clean up and organize. This took them longer than it should have, but it's all good. Out to the bar to eat some cereal. Saturday always seems to be the day where they finish off the last of some boxes and we get to empty some new cereals into the containers. Today we added Kashi's Heart to Heart Cinnamon and Mom's Best Raisin Bran. Yum :)

Does anyone use these clic-tite containers?

(Found at T.J. Maxx :))

I sent the boys down the hall after to do their usual morning routine:

  1. Brush teeth
  2. Make bed
  3. Get dressed
They did all without a fuss and proceeded to play. Then the arguments and fighting ensued. So, guess what?

Time to kick them outside!

The played outside for hours and did so well we 
decided to make it a picnic lunch at their play-set.

They picked me some flowers too :)
(We are trying to get them to turn purple w/ a little food coloring.)

Chris works at night, as you may have read in previous posts, so trying to get the boys to stay fairly quiet so he can sleep in is a must. It is also very hard to do!

When Chris got up, he left for the day with his bf Colin to go get fitted for suits for Colin's wedding in August. They decided to buy suits instead of rent tuxes. Every 30+ year old should have a suit in the closet right? 

So with Chris gone for the day my run is not going to happen until this evening.

However, this leaves the boys and me time to plan for tomorrow without Chris overhearing.

Tomorrow is Father's Day. My parents are camping so I won't see my dad until the afternoon. However in the morning Elijah and Noah have a whole series of things planned for their daddy, including:
  • Making breakfast (of course) for the family
  • Massaging dad's feet with some lotion (this was their idea, good thing Chris isn't ticklish with those little hands touching him)
  • Giving their homemade gifts and cards to him
  • Doing chores for him
We are going to cook breakfast sandwiches and make some corn muffins and some fruit salad.

Have you bought this mix at Trader Joe's?
(So Good!)

I also am meeting my bestie tomorrow morning very early to pump out my 8 mile long run I need to do before our Father's day adventured begin. Looking forward to this run!

Super Saturday Style may be sticking around :) 

Let me know what your Saturday Style is.

Do you have anything planned for tomorrow?

Tell me about your runs too!



  1. Oh it's wonderful to be able to sleep until 8!! I hope he enjoys all his Father's Day pampering and good luck on those 8 miles!

  2. I have some jalapeno jelly that will go quite nicely with that cornbread! :)

    1. That sounds really good. I didn't even think of that and we have some! I'll have to try it tonight :)

  3. Sleeping in! YAY!!!! Must be tough juggling different schedules with little ones AND training for a race. Hope the run in the AM goes well!!!

    1. It can be tough, but we have gotten used to it! We just have to learn when to say no sometimes. The run went well! Thanks :)

  4. I ran 7 miles yesterday. It was pretty good. Got my long run in earlier in the week. I hope you guys had a great Father's Day, it sounds like you have some cool things planned. I definitely think a suit is more practical than a tux for a wedding, you can wear it multiple times.

    1. Glad you had a good run! Suits are definitely more practical. I love it too. I got to see it yesterday finally. It's Calvin Klein and it looks great on him. They got an awesome deal on the suits too :)

  5. What a great saturday!! and yay for sleeping in! i normally wake up around 5:30 naturally, force myself back to sleep on the weekends, and wake up again at 7. if i fall back to sleep again after that i wont get up again until like 10 and feel soooo groggy, so i usually stay up once its 7. (ha and that is how to make a very short story into a long story.) anyways, hope you're having a great monday!

    1. Awesome. I can sleep until 8 if the boys let me. If the kids are staying the night somewhere else I still don't sleep much past 8 because I'll be groggy and lazy too. I feel like I've missed half the day when that happens!
