Hi, guys! Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? I shared a little recap of Friday night with Quinn and then Saturday was kind of a blur. We did our usual “gym day” followed by coffee and donuts and then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening hanging out at home – nothing too exciting to report. We woke up on Sunday without any plans, but the day ended up shaping up! Here’s a little recap.

Qman and I were up and at ’em at 6:30 AM. (People, someday I WILL sleep past 7:00 AM. I just know it.) We played with his new “Serpent Sword” as well as drill set, which is still a top favorite since receiving it for his birthday last year. I mean, it IS pretty fun! 🙂

About an hour or so later, I made us breakfast – French toast sticks, apple slices, and milk for Quinn and a rice cake with mashed banana, ground flax, and almond butter spread on top for me.

When Mal was awake, we took a family trip to Stop & Shop for some groceries.

This kid. <3

On the drive home, I received a message from some friends about going out to lunch, and it sounded like a great plan to us!

A few hours later, we met them at The Fours for lunch. I ordered the “Ray Bourque” sandwich on gluten-free bread – sliced corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing. Yummmm!

Lunch was quite the fun Sunday outing! Can we talk about the matching outfits? 🙂

After lunch, we headed home. Quinn went down for a nap, Mal went out with friends, and I did some meal prep, which if you hop on Instagram Stories right now, you can see what I made for the week! 🙂

When Quinn woke up from his nap, we took Murphy on a walk around the neighborhood. It was pretty cold outside, but sunny – I really hope Spring is on its way!

FYI: Some colors of my winter coat (pictured above) are ON SALE right now!!! I paid an arm and a leg for it last fall, but it’s so much cheaper. Maybe I need it in blue, too? 🙂

FYI #2: My jeans (also pictured above – and free shipping both ways from Nordstrom) were just $64, and I’m obsessed. Love, love, love! Actually, here’s a better photo (below).

I usually spend a ton on jeans (like $200) because I wear them a ton and want them to last, but these ones were so much more affordable and just as high-quality. My black slip-on shoes are also a steal at $49, and they’re insanely comfy – like walking on clouds! 🙂

Question of the Day
