Weekend Essentials.

During my weekends I have several things that I love to happen! 
I like to think that they are my Weekend Essentials & make my weekend complete...


1// dinner with Peter.
It doesn't happen every week but most Fridays are his deal. He works half days on Friday so he has time to go to the store, pick up some food and prepare dinner. It is one of my favorite things since being married. Coming home after a long week and soaking in some quality time with Peter around our kitchen table. I do all the cleaning afterward to say thank you, of course! (ps, five dollar chickens at Earthfare on Fridays!) 

2// saturday morning coffee and breakfast.
I'm not a morning person so the fact that Peter wakes up early is a huge benefit for me! He let's me sleep in till around 9:30 and when the coffee is hot and ready I make my way downstairs. It really is the only way I can make myself get out of bed. It also doesn't hurt that Peter likes to cook some yummy breakfast for us!

3// laundry.
Ugh... it has to happen, right? I try my best to keep the laundry done during the week but most of the time I end up doing it on the weekends.

4// church.
My favorite part of the weekend! We love our church so much and I look forward to Sunday mornings. We also teach a class of three year olds every other Sunday, which is a ton of fun! We are learning about Abraham right now and completing a study through Genesis.

5// preparation.
At the end of every weekend I love to look through my planner for the week and make sure I have everything in the front of my mind for Monday. Appointments, meetings, dinner plans... this always helps me welcome Monday with a happier heart.

6// paint my nails.
It sounds silly but one of my favorite parts about the weekend is sitting down and painting my nails. I usually make a hot cup of tea, figure out which color will be best for the week ahead and enjoy a little "me" time.

What a great recap <3 I'm sure those 3 year olds are super entertaining and also blessed by you guys teaching the word of God!

CassieEliya said...

Yes, they are entertaining for sure & they have blessed us in return! Such a gift!!
thanks for the comment :)

hot tea and nail painting is a great way to wind down the week!

Kiki said...

Sounds like the perfect weekend to me! I love starting off my weekends with a nice warm breakfast and I'm looking forward to doing that very thing this weekend. :)


And this is seriously crazy, but I teach in a 3 and 4 year old Sunday School class, too! AND we're teaching about Abraham, too! Except we're moving onto Christmas in two weeks--so excited about that!


Thanks for linking up!

CassieEliya said...

yuuup!!! :)

CassieEliya said...

loved this month's link up and how everyone had a different type of essentials!


That is so crazy that you teach little babes, too!! They are such a blessing, aren't they?!?

Kiki said...

Me, too! At first I worried it would be too open-ended, but I have loved seeing what everyone is writing their lists on!


And they are definitely a blessing! It's funny because I joke that I'm around preschoolers allll the time (I'm also a preschool teacher) but I honestly cannot imagine my Sundays without my little Sunday Schoolers! :)

I love weekends like that! I think it's awesome that Peter cooks!!! I love cooking, but if someone else wants to make something yummy, I'm always game. :)

Love the Friday night dinner! :) I always look forward to ordering out for dinner on a Friday night with my husband. It's not fancy, but we like not cooking, catching up on our hulu and netflix shows, and snuggling with the dog. It's the little things. :)


And girl, I'm not a morning person either. So thankful for a husband that gets coffee and breakfast ready. I once read an article that women need more sleep than men. I like to think that convinced him, but that may just be wishful thinking haha. Still, so glad he does it anyway. :)

CassieEliya said...

YUP! I love cooking too but it is nice to have a little break every week!

CassieEliya said...

Ordering out sounds like a great idea too!!! I should start doing that sometimes to switch things up! :)


Coffee and breakfast on weekends is a must, especially when you don't have to make it! haha!! :) I heard the same thing about the sleeping thing with women, I've warned my hubby of that fact multiple times!! HA!

Victoria said...

I completely AGREE. :)
