It’s 8am somewhere!

It’s a little after 12pm and I’m finally starting my day ๐Ÿ™‚ I love Saturdays!

I got up at 5:30am to let the dog out, feed him and let him do his business. Then, I hopped back into bed vowing to sleep in past 7am (which is uber-rare since the sun shines directly into my eyes at 7am, requiring me to wear a very sexy sleep mask to bed when I want to sleep in).

My honey was very sweet and didn’t wake me up until 8am! I got out of bed around 8:30am and finally ate breakfast after 9am. I decided that I needed to make my list for the day, so I put in Modern Family and made my list! A million episodes later and I’m finally ready to start tackling that list ๐Ÿ™‚

To be fair, I’ve already done two things on the list: do the dishes and make more dishwasher detergent. <– Update on that: this stuff is awesome!!! I have put some crazy dirty stuff in the dishwasher with lots of caked-on doughs and such, and everything has come out clean! It lasted me almost a month, but I was using close to two tablespoons per load when I probably could have been using only one. Making the second batch took me all of 3 minutes to get out the stuff, measure, mix and put away everything. Super cheap and easy to do!

1 cup borax, 1 cup washing soda, 1 tbsp powder detergent, 1/2 cup salt is all you need!

Other things on my list today include:

  • Make another batch of Larabars using Mama Pea’s recipea
  • Make granola bars (seriously, I have to have them every week! Especially now that I’ll be eating lunch in the dining hall every day!)
  • Make Chelsey’sย Date Syrup
  • Work out (I’m trying a few moves I picked up from bodyrock)
  • Make fruit salad with my abundance of fresh fruit! Watermelon, crenshaw melon, sprite melon, peaches, apples, and kiwi- YUM!
  • Then I have to do some boring stuff around the house like clean up and do laundry
It’s supposed to rain today and I couldn’t be more excited! We need the rain so desperately- plus it gives me an excuse to stay inside all day making stuff in the kitchen, like a mess ๐Ÿ™‚
What is your favorite rainy day activity?

  1. On rainy days I tend to tackle everything I’ve been putting off over the week! Which generally means pretty boring things like sorting papers and stuff. But I also love to bake on rainy days, it makes it much cozier to be sat with a mug of tea and something yummy hot out of the oven ๐Ÿ™‚ I also love to try out stuff from bodyrock, that site is awesome!

  2. Rainy days are great for catching up on cleaning and organizing, Plus watching movies ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Your to do list sounds FUN! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love baking on rainy days…and sunny days ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. I hope you like the date syrup!! I’ve been using it for a sweetener on everything!

  5. It’s really rare that I can sleep in past 7, too! I’ll have to try the sleep mask idea. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I’ve been thinking about making my own dishwasher detergent so I’m happy to know it’s been working well for you and now feel even more motivated to try it.
