50's Housewife For A Day

I dont know if its because of my nesting stage or what but yesterday was definetly the first for me. I woke up at 6 in the morning and started cleaning. Just doing the dishes and laundry. My son wasnt up yet so I decided to go back to sleep after I had finish. It was 9 and he still wasnt up so I decided to make breakfast. Then took him to the park. It was fun but REALLY windy. Decided to come home and make dinner. I was looking through an old recipe book my mom had and came across the meatloaf she used to make. I was intrigued and it didnt seem that hard to make. Which came out to be true. As a side I made mashed potatoes with brown gravy. For the first time ever I had made something like my mother! It tasted soooooooooooo good. I really wanted to bake a cake but didnt have mix or enough ingredients to make from scratch. Oh well. I have to give it up to those mothers from the 50's. Its not as easy as it seems.


  1. sounds like a nice day! the meal sounds delicious :)


  2. When my son was younger I too would wake up before him to get stuff done around the house. Now I wake up with him and get things done when he naps or after he goes to sleep.

    The food looks great!

  3. SAME HERE!!!! its hard to do anything once they become mobile.
