LIFE, weekend

Sunday Night Routine

Happy Sunday! I always have mixed feelings about Sundays because I love relaxing and getting my life together, but I also get sad because the weekend is over. However, my Sundays usually look pretty similar each week. Whether I am home in Chicago all weekend or on a little weekend trip, I make sure I am relaxing and prepping for the week by 4 or 5pm.

Connor and I usually try to get to the grocery store on Sunday so we have food to get us through lunches and dinners. So typically Connor and I start our Sunday evening by making dinner. Today we got our favorite take and bake pizza from Aldi for dinner. Mostly because we were just getting back from a weekend with our college friends, but also because it’s so yummy.

After dinner, I usually throw in a load of laundry. It could be the first of the day, or the fourth or fifth of the day. I like getting ahead of laundry so I have all of our work clothes and work out clothes clean. Having options makes the week less stressful. Plus, our laundry piles up really fast. I feel like I wear 2 or 3 different outfits each day depending on what I am doing after work.

I like to shower early on the weekends so I can let my hair air dry, rather than going to bed with it wet. Then I always do a face mask. I love face masks and do them multiple times a week. Today I used the Moon Mask from Glossier. Face masks always make my face feel clean and soft for the week ahead!

I typically watch Netflix with Connor throughout the rest of the night until I am tired, so around 9pm lol. Between Netflix, I try to blog or at least brainstorm ideas for the week and get my stuff together for work. I pack up my backpack with workout clothes and anything I need for work. I also pack my lunch. Tonight I packed breakfast and lunch. I made a yogurt bowl for breakfast with Greek yogurt, frozen berries, and granola. For lunch I packed a veggie burger patty, hummus with carrots, and cottage cheese. I find this meal to be really filling, but also easy to snack on through the day if I need to.

Sometimes I will read before bed. Right now I am reading “Where Am I Giving?” by Kelsey Timmerman, and it’s good so far! As for the TV shows Connor and I watch throughout the night, we will watch things like The Good Place, This Is Us, or It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Tonight we started season 3 of Narcos. It’s alright so far. I really haven’t been paying close attention.

That pretty much wraps up my Sunday night routine. It’s nothing exciting, but I love feeling like I got to relax over the weekend! I also love getting things somewhat in order so I can workout, relax, or blog after work! What are some things you like to do on Sundays?

  1. Sunday’s are usually filled with homemade brunch, laundry, picking up the house, watching our shows on Netflix/Hulu, relaxing, and snuggling with my pup. I am like you, in the sense of no matter what we do or where we are on a Sunday, we try to make it home by 4-5 ish to relax and prep for the week. Makes me feel accomplished going to bed on Sunday nights with everything in order! 😊
