Weekend Traditions

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Family traditions are so important to Ian and I...even the simplest of things like Saturday and Sunday breakfast have become a family tradition. Weekend mornings consist of waking up WAY too early..turning on some good tunes, getting a GIANT pot of coffee started (I heart coffee and might have a mini freak out if I did not have a few cups) and making a huge batch of scrambled eggs. I love it.

Do you have any weekend traditions? I want to hear!

Oh and on a side note...I am SO bummed. I accidentally deleted a few posts last night.

Lesson learned: Do not try to edit a bunch of your posts after a dinner date where you had more than one glass of wine. Got it.

Only a couple days left to enter THIS giveaway.

OK, that's pretty much the cutest little one! We don't really have weekend traditions, but we do have a couple things we do a month on the weekends that are traditions, does that count? I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Stopping by from FTLOB!

Adorbs! When I'm home, my dad I usually eat lunch at the same place on Saturday & we always play baseball with the pup in the evening.

I love how cute max is with a mouthful of eggs. Adorable! We don't have any weekly traditions but does our annual winter vaycay for just the two of us count? I'm always trying to start something new!

I love a hot cup of tea at my kitchen table on Saturday mornings...while I read blogs! Is that nerdy or what?

Charlotte B said...

Aahh such a cute picture! At the weekends, hubby and I always lay in bed until about 10, then make a big breakfast and eat in bed while listening to the radio ; ) I fear this will all change when we have kids!! xx

Hello. I have just started following your blog - love it, especially your skincare tips!
On Sundays mornings, I always cook my husband and step daughter pancakes for breakfast. She loves to set the table and decorate it with flowers. Such a great way to spend a morning.

Lindsay said...

Weekend traditions equal a strong family..... I LOVE that!

Lindsay said...

Such a fun thing to look forward to every weekend! Such a sweet boy you have!

We love to do eggs & grits on the weekend. It's kind of a fun thing I look forward to as well. :)

Tania said...

Isn't it frustrating to delete posts by accident? It's happened to me a few times too.
We do pancakes every Sunday and the kids especially love it.

Rachael said...

Oh nos! I'm sorry to hear about your missing posts. :(
As for traditions, I love to grab my bible and a few magazines, head to a local coffee shop and treat myself to some chillax time.

We always have a fancy breakfast on Sunday morning-usually cooked by my husband. He makes buttermilk pancakes from scratch, or french toast from homemade bread. There's nothing better!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

What a cutie.My tradition is to sleep in:) I love sleep too much! Sorry to hear about te deleted posts, darn that wine!

Danielle said...

your baby is just the cutest! i don't really have any traditions...does catching up on sleep count? :)

HazelandMare said...

I love weekend traditions! Hehe, mine actually sounds a lot like yours! ;)

Amy said...

I tell my kids on Friday & Saturday night that they get to sleep in the next day. I also say that if they wake up before me, to play quietly in their rooms. It works great, I need my sleep. :)

Ashley Sloan said...

Oh my gosh what a fun tradition! I have no weekend one other than going to church! But that sounds like a good one- I love scrambled eggs! Thanks for stopping by my blog too :) Oh and I'm SO sorry you deleted a few posts- that is horrible ahhh! Ha.

Family traditions are the best! I love that sense of continuity and something you can always expect to be there. My tradition is to bake some big casserole or chicken dish every Sunday night, to last me through the beginning of the week (I live alone). It makes the usually-rushed beginning of the week much calmer!

Elishia and Belinda said...

hmm lately baked beans and toast! And my hubby tickles our 5 week old baby boy to get smiles out of him and I happily snap away!

I just love family traditions - especially weekend ones! We try to do pancakes on sat morning & have some fun activity planned that gets us out if the house ( otherwise we go crazy!).

How cute is your little guy?!

And I'm so bummed about your post loss - I can totally empathize!

Oh my gosh what a gorgeous little boy!!! He has the bluest eyes!

I love your family traditions! And how great that you are getting started so early with Max too. Those traditions will be engrained in him when he's a little older! My family still tries to have our Sunday morning breakfasts with my mom's homemade chocolate chip scones. And we also have Sunday family dinners! Sunday is family/relax day :)

Mindy said...

Awww, what a cutie pie!!!

Sunday is always our farmer's market day. We walk over, gorge ourselves on local fruit and fresh baked bread, eat homemade ice cream and then waddle home and talk about what we'll eat for dinner with all our goodies. :o)

Chunny said...

Every end of the week my boyfriend and I always had our date. Since we are busy with our work the whole week. Love the picture of your boy. He is so cute eating that scrambled eggs. =)

Pink Ronnie said...

Oh, bummer about the deleted posts! How frustrating. And yes, scrambled eggs are always such a treat!

Oh Lindsay. Can Max get any cuter? How gorgeous is he? Sorry to hear about the deleted posts.

I'm not sure we've really got any traditions, as such. Maybe Sundays is a late, hot breakfast, especially in winter. But it's mostly lazy days, sleep ins etc. I've been blessed with 2 sleepers. They never get up early, weekends or week days. This is a hassle though when you're in a hurry to get out of the door for school! LOL

It'll only be a couple more years before weekend sport takes over our lives for the kids so I'm making the most of doing as little as possible! LOL

Anna said...

I love family traditions! I've already made a list that I want to start when my me & my hubs have children!

Jenna Lee said...

Awwwww. I'm sorry about your blog! Wine is great but it can cause quite the mess. My computer had a run in with Champagne.... the champagne won... :(
Happy Monday!

Lindsay - Paint Me A Picture said...

I am laughing about your wine-cident.
Sounds like something I might or might not have done.
Weekend traditions - same, waking up too early and coffee. :)

colleen said...
