Typical Sunday

All during the work week I am constantly adding items to my to-do list for the weekend. I try to get things done during the week but the hours go by so fast in the evening and I would like to spend as much time as possible with Elin during that time. The weekend comes and we always have Gymboree on Saturday morning followed by errands, cleaning, projects, and spending time with family and friends. Every Sunday I have a huge list of items I would like to get done before the weekend is over. However, my productive Sunday usually turns in to enjoying time with Elin. This Sunday was no exception.


After she woke up and got dressed, she came to watch me put on my makeup and play with the makeup brushes. She loves to take them all out of the jar and feel all the different ones on her face. Then, after eating breakfast, we played all around the house. She played with some of her current favorites which are her little basketball goal and on her Rody.



Elin’s new favorite thing to do is put on our shoes and try to wear then around the house. She doesn’t get to far before tripping, but it’s just so funny to watch her!


Then her Nana and Papa came over to see her and we all went on a walk with the dogs. Elin rode along in her car and soaked up all the attention from everyone around her. Then we all packed up and headed to the park since the park in our neighborhood had some puddles. The park was really packed, but Elin managed to find a swing and enjoyed people watching while swinging.


After the park, we ran some errands and then it was already time for dinner. She mult-tasked by getting in some Micky Mouse Clubhouse while eating. Following dinner, we headed back outside to play out back before it got too dusky. She just loves the outdoors so much.


I don’t like feeling unproductive but I am so glad we got to spend the last day of the weekend doing all of Elin’s favorite things. Even though it wasn’t incredibly exciting or jam packed with new things to do, I could tell she was having the best time just doing all her favorite things.


  1. Aw! They definitely do act a bit different when we let loose of the to-do list and function in the moment with them, huh? Something I’m definitely a work in progress with doing. Looks like y’all had a perfect weekend to me 🙂 and is that a PIG?!? (Her rocking toy?!) Have a fabulous week!

  2. I love those days! Actually most of our days are like that around here… Especially with the shoes. Lex goes into my closet and grabs my heels and walks out saying “out to dinner! Go out to dinner?”. Cracks us up every time!

  3. Oh my gosh, I love her outfit! I would totally put Sydney in that. Lol. I can not wait until we can start having park days. Everything is all muddy now from the snow SLOWLY melting.

  4. Sounds like an awesome day! I can’t wait until we can have park time! It might be warm enough today but then it’s supposed to be cold again boo! I LOVE LOVE LOVE her outfit! It looks so cute yet comfy for playing and warm at the same time! 🙂

  5. Elin is such a cutie with those too-big shoes on!! So sweet 🙂 🙂

  6. Cute photos. I love her UA jacket…I want one! She is so adorable. Love the swinging photos.
