Love me some Sunday

My favorite day of the week is definitely Sunday. For three main reasons:
·         SLEEPING IN: Well, sort of. Sleeping in for most is 10 A.M or later. For me, sleeping in means waking up around 8:30 and laying in bed thinking about how nice it would be to be able to sleep in :)
·         DAY OFF: No work one day a week. Pretty sure anyone would be happy about this. No work also means no workouts. I have myself convinced that the gym is closed on Sundays, it is right?
·         FOOTBALL SUNDAYS: This ones clearly a lie.

This Sunday started off with a shift I had picked up at the restaurant. It was insanely busy! I picked up the shift because I wanted to counter balance my budget with my (worth it) trip to Forever 21 and Target.

I picked up a black pea coat at Forever 21 and some really cute boots at Target. Oh yeah, and a black skirt too!

The boots shown here with my favorite homemade apron :)

We had people over for dinner. Our guests were my sister Emily, her boy Kevin, and our great friends Megan and Krissy. It was a great way to end the week.

I decided to make roasted root vegetables. So good!
Andrew cut the vegetables with my apple slicer. Worked great!

I roasted sweet potatoes, beets, and regular potatoes for about an hour and 15 minutes in Olive Oil, salt and pepper. So easy and so delicious.

My sister made baked chicken with an red onion and cremini mushroom sauce. The onions and mushrooms were sauteed in olive oil and homemade pesto sauce. Once the onions and mushrooms softened, Emily added some flour to thicken it. It was amazing!

I love having people over! It is so fun to make a meal together and catch up on life.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the curious eye of a child-- our own two eyes. All is a miaracle." -Thich Nhat Hanh
