The Perfect Saturday

I love Saturdays.  Thankfully I've learnt by now not to wish away five days' worth of life for the sake of two days' worth of weekend, but trust me, when those two days arrive, I inhale them.  They needn't be fancy and they needn't be grand: Just add some running, family and food - heaven!

An early morning run.  No better way to start a weekend.


Post-run smoothie: Banana, avocado, coconut, honey, yogurt and mint.  These excite me just a little too much, ha!


Shopping with my besties.  We don't need to spend a single cent - we just need to get out.  And be together.  Ahhhhhh.

The sports store is always a hit.

As is the toy store.

Can we just take a moment to thank the genius who invented these shopping carts?  Whoever you are, I really hope that you've already pocketed your first million, because mothers everywhere feel that you deserve it.  Big time.


And, as any momma will tell you, a double nap is the cherry on top of anything.  (Bonus points if it happens at home and momma can plop down too.)


Oh, and a barbecue.  In the garden.


Perfection, I tell you!

How was your Saturday?!

  2. Love Saturdays like the one you just described...family, running, and food is pretty much all I need to make it a great weekend! They have those carts here in the states too and some grocery stores have mini shopping carts that the little ones can push that say "shopper in training!" so cute! :)

    1. A few shops down here also have those mini shopping carts, Hailey, and Miss K LOVES them! The only problem is that it's usually a quite a mission to get her to let go of them once we're done... ;)

  3. Ahh, looks like an amazing Saturday!! Love the picture of your morning run. It's my favourite time of day to run, once I can force myself out of bed. :)

    1. Mine too, Lisa. Luckily it's so hot down here at the moment, that early morning runs are basically all that's bearable - that helps a bit with getting out of bed ;) .
