So, I was NOT up and at ’em this morning. Meh. I usually set my Fitbit Versa for 5:01 during the week to wake up before my boys to get some work done, but I slept through my silent (vibrating) alarm. Ugh, sleeping through an alarm is so not like me, but I guess I really needed the sleep.
Even Murphy was surprised that I slept so late. Usually, he has his breakfast promptly at 5:05 AM, but it was past 7:00 AM by the time I fed him. Doesn’t he look like he was wasting away? Poor pug.
Once I fed Murphy, it was iced coffee time. Woohoo! I really look forward to this part of my morning! 🙂
Recently, I’m mixing my morning tumbler with vanilla Ripple milk and collagen. I like the Ripple because it tastes delicious, mixes well with iced coffee and collagen, has 8g plant-based protein per serving, Omega-3s, and more calcium and iron than dairy milk. Fancy, right? LOVE!
I worked for a little while and then heard Quinn’s bedroom door open. The tiny human was awake, and he slept until 7:40 AM! We put an air conditioner in his room recently, and he’s really digging it on the wake-up front.
Once Quinn was awake, I make us breakfast since we both slept in and woke up pretty hungry. I had cauliflower gnocchi (from Trader Joe’s) mixed with butter, Parmesan, and arugula. Mmm!
After breakfast, I poured myself another iced coffee and got Murphy ready for his morning walk. When I opened the front door, there was a wet package from Amazon waiting for me. Inside was new set of stainless steel cups with lids and straws to replace Quinn’s plastic cups and straws. We’re really trying to reduce the amount of plastic we use in our lives and his sippy cups just do not get clean anymore – no matter how hard we try. Plus, plastic straws are getting a lot of negative attention right now, so we figured we should switch over to all reusable ones. I own a few glass straws, but Mal doesn’t like them, so he was ALL about using the metal ones.
Quinn was pumped too since he got to pick the red cup to use this morning! 🙂
Off to school! 🙂
It’s work time for me, and I need to boogie because Mal and I have a fun lunch date planned later this afternoon!
See ya later!
