Great SunDAY

December 13th, 2010 16 comments

Does anyone know why the weekend goes by so fast? It’s quite a puzzle to me…..the hours seem to just FLY by! And Sunday nights are always my least favorite night of the week. Does anyone else feel this way? I guess the start of the long work week just seems so daunting.

This morning was my first Sunday morning in MONTHS that I didn’t have to get up and run! So, to celebrate, I slept in until 10:00 (!!!) and then started my day with some baking. The perfect morning. :)

First order of business were Jenna’s Oh Baby bars:

I had made these for the Team Challenge pre-race party and they were a hit, so I knew just what to make to take to a certain friend for a little Christmas/house warming gift. :)

Then right after, I got to making Mama Pea’s dough balls:

These have been quite the rage in the food blog world so I had to see what all the fuss was about.

The only change I made was that I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips (and no peanut butter chips). When I asked Jay how they turned out, he only had one word:

FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC.

So, J and I pretty much ate peanut butter and chocolate all morning and day. I have a horrible habit of tasting as I bake – I would much rather eat the dough/batter than the finished product! And now my jeans do not like me. Hehe (…….but seriously, they don’t……..).

We attempted to make ourselves feel better offset the sugar coma, and went to the 4:00 Spin class at the gym. I can’t tell you the last time I took a Spin class (or any cardio class for that matter since I’m always teaching). It was GREAT! Totally kicked my azz, and I loved every minute of it. :)

So, even though Sunday nights are my least favorite night of the week, I had a pretty awesome SunDAY.

How was your Sunday? Do you have a least favorite night of the week?
