Sunday Life

A couple of weeks ago I did a post about a day in our life. It was an accurate portrayal of our days on Monday and Tuesdays but our lives are very different on the other days of the week.

So now I wanted to do a day in our life post about what our Sundays are like. Our Sundays are always the same and pretty much the most predictable day of our week.

Sunday morning Luke wakes up bright and early and heads out the door for church before Eli and I are usually even awake.

Eli wakes up around his usual time of 7:00 and then we start our normal morning routine. I feed him breakfast and work on my bible study. Double tasking at it's finest.
Then we play a little and then I get ready for church while Eli takes his morning nap.

Around 9:30 or 10:00 we leave for church.

Luke and I have gone to the same church and he has been employed there during our entire relationship. It's crazy to think that we have been there for 8 years! The church family has changed quite a bit since we first started going there but it is like our family. I don't know what life would be like without our church family. We have been around these people as a young dating couple, newly married couple and now a growing family.

Every other Sunday I work in the nursery. Today I was in service. Here is Luke doing his thang during church. This is totally grainy because I snuck it during church from Luke's phone. All in the name of the blog!Usually after church we will go eat with friends or lately to save money we've just gone home. Today we had a meeting after church so we ate lunch at the meeting.

Our Sunday afternoons are usually very low-key. Luke and Eli take a nap at some point and I work on Scentsy stuff, meal plan, play with Eli, clean, and do general stuff around the house.

Today Luke graded papers in the floor while Eli scooted around and I worked on stuff at the kitchen table. Around 6:00 I kiss my boys bye and head back up to the church for my bible study. I've been doing a Kay Arthur Precept bible study and I love it so much. I'm digging dipper into scripture than I ever have before. I think so many times we want to try and make the scripture "fluffy" and fit it to our lifestyle, but that's not what God's word is about and I'm really growing so much through this study.

After bible study I go to the grocery store to get our groceries for the week. I try to get in and out as fast (and as cheap) as possible.When I get home from bible study Eli is asleep in bed and Luke is usually watching some football game while working on school or music stuff. I then get everything around the house ready for the week, watch a little bit of TV, get everything ready for an easy grab in the morning (lunch, Eli's food, purse, etc) and then get dinner ready (usually in the crock pot). Monday and Tuesday are my only days that I work till 5:00 so I try and have those two dinner's prepared ahead of time so I don't have to spend precious time in the evening cooking.

Tomorrow's meal ready to go:
Then we get in bed around 11:00 and try and wind down and get ready for the rat race of the week to begin!

I need to do more ready-to-go crock pot meals like that. Delicious and easy. But it's all about planning ahead which I definitely have NOT mastered yet! Thanks for the inspiration!

Much love,
Ashley
