A long Sunday nap starts the week off right....and Menu Plan Monday

What is it about Sunday afternoons? Around 1pm sleep just hits me like a ton of bricks and if I don't take a nap, well, it's going to be a bad week. Usually, a one hour nap does it (during Pumpkin Doodles' nap), but this time I took a 3 1/2 hour nap and if it weren't for my husband egging the baby on to wake me up, I'm sure I would have slept until morning.

Ahhhhh I love naps. This is going to be a good week.

Mari said...

I work every other weekend, but on my Sundays off, a nap is in order. To quote Martha Stewart - "It's a good thing!"

Imperfect said...

Have I mentioned how much I love your slow cooker recipes yet? Well if I haven't, I do. The Southwestern Pot Roast sounds amazing.

And I love naps too. Except when I wake up feeling groggy...which is most of the time. So really, I love laying in bed in the middle of the day for no reason. It's lovely.

MMMM, I love the menu and thanks for the sippy cup link!

Mandy said...

NO WAY. I took a nap yesterday and I take one almost every day. I will crumble when my children nix naps from their routine. CRUMBLE, I tell you.

Mom's Mind said...

I love bargains and I really love your blog! How fun it is to be frugal, lol! : )

southerninspiration said...

Kids taking naps are for mommies, and mommies taking naps are for mommies......hands down, no contest. Mommies NEED naps!

Shannon said...

No, naps are not just for kids. My daily nap is something I look forward to. Seriously.

I love your menu! I can't take naps because my Dad never let me so now I have a psychological thing against it, but my husband does all the time!

Steph said...

Your Meatball Tortellini Soup looks yummy!

Nerdy Jess said...

Heck NO! I love naps. I live for naps. I would like a nap right this instant.

If naps are just for kids then I guess I have yet to grow up! I usually only take them on Sundays unless it was a bad day, then sometimes I take an early evening nap :) They are my fav!

CrYsTAL said...

Heck no... I had a GREAT 2 hour nap yesterday, and I'm with you, i could have slept til morning if my hubby didn't wake me up to go home. (we were at my parents house) LOL

Steph said...

Definitely not just for kids! I take one as often as I can!

Jenny said...

Heck no! I think I need more naps than my daughter does!

Tabitha Blue said...

Oh I would LOVE a nap right about now!!!!

Kate said...

Hey Girl -
Oh man, I could have used a nap yesterday. Naps are probably on my top ten most wonderful things list. Today I was seriously dragging for awhile. I laid down for 10 minutes and couldn't go to sleep though! So I just got up and grabbed some caffeine.

mydogumentary said...

I took a nice 2 hour nap Sunday--it was marvelous! :)

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

Ahhh, naps! I had a nap Sunday afternoon too. I couldn't help it. I meant to "just lie down" for a while and ended up sleeping for two hours -- as long as my boy did! I must have needed it, as I'm 19 weeks along now....

angie said...

I love naps! I just can't go to sleep at night if I take one. Actually, this morning all I could think about was getting off work and taking a nap!

Sherry said...

I'm usually the one taking naps. LOL! Everyone knows not to disturb mom Sunday afternoons for her nap. :D

Great looking menu!! THe baked potato soup sounds divine and comforting!

poppingbubbles said...
