Things I love on Saturday mornings...

I love waking up at my normal time and realizing it's Saturday, and I don't have to get out of bed just yet. I love it even more if my body lets me fall back asleep, even if it's only for 45 minutes longer.

I don't really love it when Jack-the-Beagle comes in my room and licks my face while I'm asleep. Yeh, that'll wake a girl up.

I love to stay in bed while awake, and talk to John. We hardly ever wake up at the same time during the week, so when we both sleep in and wake up together, it's nice.

I love to hear our kids playing while we're talking. They usually like each other the most in the mornings.

I love that my kids get excited about Saturday morning cartoons. We don't have cable, so they're limited to what's on television, but there are a few shows they love, and I remember how excited watching cartoons used to be for me!

I love having the morning "off" from breakfast duty. John is the chief pancake flipper on Saturdays.

I love sipping my chai at the table while John drinks his coffee. Saturday morning is really the only unhurried morning of our entire week.

I love waking up to a clean house on Saturdays. I don't always get to clean on Fridays, but when I do, it's so nice, and it makes our weekends feel more relaxed.

I love not having an agenda for the day. The only thing we're planning to do today is attend our friend's surprise *50th* birthday party.

Happy Saturday.

I love all those things, too.

Except one... we usually clean up on Saturday, but now I'm rethinking it! If I were to roll out of bed and find a clean house, I think that could be possibly the only thing that would make Saturdays better. hmmmmm! Me thinks there is a wind of change blowin' in the HisGirl home :)

As always, I just plain love this post.

There's not one thing in your post that i don't love about my Saturday mornings too! Even down to the birthday party. My "baby" brother is turning 30 this week and we are celebrating with a birthday bash this evening!

Happy Saturday!

Yep, me too! I cleaned last night (kitchen and toy pick-up anyway) and tonight we're going out for MY birthday! Must be in the spring air.

Enjoy your Saturday, Mer. Hard to believe I was in your neighborhood a week ago!

So much has happened with the house, etc., this week. Hope to post Mon.

It is great to wake up and go back to sleep, isn't it? Sometimes I'm tempted to set my alarm when I don't have to get up, just so I can turn it of. But then I change my mind. :)

This post totally relaxed me. Your Saturdays sound wonderful. My oldest boys are nicest to each other first thing in the morning. They usually turn the TV on Saturday mornings and wait for us to come out. I also enjoy just lying in bed talking when we wake up. Saturdays are great. :o)
