Last night we all went out for Father’s Day. When we celebrate, we celebrate with sushi.
End of the Semester Sushi
We also celebrate by making our favorite waffles.
The weekend is a cause to celebrate, right? I try to continue my weekday routine on the weekend. Here’s what I do.
- Get up at 5:30 make coffee, yoga stretch, unload dishwasher
- Quietly read, pray, drink coffee out on the porch (all alone!)
- 6:30 blog until kids get up (usually between 7-8)
- make these insanely delicious waffles (man I want some right now and it’s almost 10:00 pm)
- clean up, start laundry, take care of kids, watch food network
Then after lunch I take a 2 hour nap.
I also celebrate by making fancy coffee.
If I have friends over or feel I need a little boost (when I’m spending the afternoon creating a product) I pull out a pretty little cup and saucer and treat myself to a pretty and yummy cup of coffee.
We do have special coffee. We have an espresso maker you make on the stove like you would if you were in Italy. It’s not for the faint of heart. It’ll perk you up in a matter of sips. My husband is VERY picky about his coffee so it has to be the best.
Since we are coffee snobs, we also have a milk frother. It’s what puts the fancy into “fancy” coffee. And then there’s also the sprinkling of cinnamon sugar on top. Now that’s a reason to celebrate right there!
Soon it will be the 4th of July and we’ll celebrate some more. My in-laws will be in town which means more sushi, more waffles, and more fancy coffees.
And maybe I can talk my mother-in-law to whip up some homemade ice-cream.
I would say because it’s summer low maintenance celebrating is the way to go. But, who am I kidding? I’m pretty low maintenance all the time so bring on the sushi! Happy Summer, friends!
