A Lazy Sunday

Happy Sunday! Once the air turns cold, I tend to hibernate like a bear. Of course, this does not mean I disappear, it just means that my activities are different. Every once in a while, I love to take a break from it all and enjoy a lazy Sunday. I can't think of anything better than a nice Sunday at home with NOTHING to do. Well, not nothing...I'd be bored if I didn't do anything, but you get the point. No obligations, birthday parties, or social appointments. No errands to run. Just pure relaxation.

Here's my top 5 list of things to make a lazy Sunday fabulous and relaxing!

1. No matter what your opinion on the great yoga pant debate a while ago, yoga pants are perfect attire for a Sunday at home. Stretchy and comfy. Add a pink snuggie, and you're sooooo comfortable. Don't snicker. I bet you like snuggies as much as I do! I tried and tried to resist and poke fun at Snuggies, but truly, they are FAB-U-LOUS. And you can get it monogrammed...

2. A great book is a key for the day. Right now, I'm reading Once Upon a Time: Behind the Fairy Tale of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier and can't seem to put it down. I read it in the car line at school or whenever I am waiting to pick up the girls from somewhere. It's a great examination of the relationship between Princess Grace and Prince Rainier. I've read a lot of books about Princess Grace and this is one of the best.

3. Enjoy some hot tea from this Lilly Pulitzer mug. Chamomile tea promotes overall well-being and is widely recognized as an herb that relieves anxiety. Peter Rabbit's mom gave him chamomile tea to sip after his mis-adventures in Mr. McGregor's garden to soothe his stomach and it will work for you, too!

4. Sooooooooo, chocolate chip cookies don't exactly pair perfectly with tea, but these yummy treats would make me happy on any lazy Sunday! My favorite chocolate chip cookies are soft and almost gooey on the inside. They're even better hot out of the oven.

5. Finish your perfect Sunday with a bath bomb from Lush! Sakura is probably my favorite and is a very fragrant cherry blossom-type scent. It looks almost too pretty to use, but trust me, once you use this, you'll be running back to the store for more. Another great bath bomb to try is Blackberry.

How would you spend a lazy Sunday at home?



  1. I cant remember the last time I had a lazy Sunday! There is always work to be done, meals to be cooked, dishes to be put away, laundry to be folded etc etc etc. I didn't realise moms got a day off!

  2. Curled up on the couch watching football, reading, cross-stitching, and of course a good nap.
    Have a great Sunday

  3. I have a lazy sunday too!!! One of my friends has her pink snuggie monogrammed!!!

  4. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!! I am spending mine around the house and then out for a run later.

  5. Love the mug as I have the same one.
    I bought before I knew I had kidney stone surgeries this summer and well I love tea. Tea is something now that I must watch the amount I drink because it can be a precursor to stones and I do not want the pain of those again.

  6. I will have to look for that Princess Grace book; I've been trying find a good biography on her ever since seeing her dresses on exhibit while on vacation in September.

  7. My lazy Sundays always include newspapers--the New York Times for sure and whatever the local paper is, a pot of tea, and maybe some silly romantic movies on Lifetime TV.

  8. I've been traveling so much over the past weekends that I haven't had a lazy Sunday in I don't know how long. Hoping for one this weekend though!
