2013 Game Changers On Ideal Start To Saturday Morning
September 10, 2013 09:27 AM
What would be an ideal Saturday morning for you to start your weekend?
Here are their responses:
■ Charlotte Jones Anderson: Waking up after an evening of Friday night lights and watching my high school senior playing football, and then heading back to the field to see my sixth-grade son be coached by his dad. Follow that with an afternoon of cheering for my alma mater, Stanford University. Football is the fabric of our family.
■ Mary Pat Augenthaler: I would sleep in until 7 a.m., and my husband would make pancakes for me and our kids. (His pancakes are much better than mine!) Then I would head to a spin class or go for a run before a day of kids sporting events. We have to fit a lot in on Saturdays because Sundays are all about football.
■ Cheryl Bailey: Sleeping in and having breakfast on my porch overlooking the lake before the sporting events of the weekend begin.
■ Lisa Boggs: A cup of coffee on the patio.
■ Melissa Rosenthal Brenner: Our kids sleep past 8 a.m., I work out, we have a great family breakfast, and then we head out for some adventure.
■ Amy Brooks: Spending time at the playground with my 2- and 4-year-old daughters.
■ Jacqie Carpenter: Waking up on my own time and hanging out with my daughter, Samone (age 7), after a long week.
■ Kim Carver: I have a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old, and so some Saturday mornings they come tearing in and jump on the bed and wake me up — and that is the best way to start a Saturday. Just fantastic.
■ Jennifer Chun: Lazy, in bed, with the kids jumping around.
■ Vicky Chun: Coffee, visiting the farmers market (the local farmers), and seeing friends and family at the farmers market. I love it.
■ Susan Cohig: A long run in Central Park and then spending time with my daughter (age 8).
■ Reagan Feeney: Waking up to the adorable voice of my 4-year-old daughter, Zoe; hitting our favorite local diner; and splashing in the waves at Venice Beach.
■ Leslie Gamez: It would start early and would include any of the following: a long mountain bike ride, a long trail run or a good Nordic ski, followed by a cup of spicy tea and a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal.
■ Christine Garrity: I raise racehorses, so on Saturday mornings I enjoy going out to watch the 2-year-olds work out on the track and spend time with all the horses.
■ Alison Giordano: Pancake breakfast with the kids.
■ Michelle Grech: [It] starts with my 7-year-old daughter waking up with the biggest smile on her face, and we would do an art project together while having breakfast. I would follow this up with my favorite yoga class. Finally, my husband and I would go cheer on my daughter at one of her soccer games.
■ Mimi Griffin: Yoga in the park or an early round of golf.
■ Jennifer Hanley: Go to Starbucks, get my tea, and whether I’m going to dance, or soccer, or basketball practice, or a baseball game, my ideal Saturday is to watch my kids do what they love.
■ Lynn Hickey: Sleeping in a little bit later than usual, reading the paper, walking my new puppy, and then finally getting motivated to do my weekend workout.
■ Pam Hollander: My two kids don’t come into my room before 8 a.m., and I’ll come downstairs, and they’ll have already made breakfast — for themselves and me.
■ Kelly Krauskopf: As the sun is rising, sit outside on my back patio in the stillness with a cup of coffee, then take a bike ride to Café Patachou for the best breakfast in Indy.
■ Rachel Lewis: My kids sleep in until 8 a.m., I read the sports section over breakfast and then spend the morning with my family at a nearby park or beach.
■ Lucia McKelvey: Saturday morning is my workout time. I’m an avid runner, and I cherish that me time. When I get back from running, family time is a must, especially with my adorable newborn baby girl, Bentlie.
■ Paula Miller: Undoubtedly, playing golf with my daughter Caroline (age 15).
■ Kathy Milthorpe: Hot yoga.
■ Diana Myers: A long run (10+ miles).
■ Kim Ng: Watching the sun rise as I take a walk on the beach.
■ Regina O’Brien: Playing nine holes at the Winter Park Country Club, which is a little course down the road from my house; then I would get in my car and drive to an Irish pub to meet some friends and watch a World Cup final. It’d be Argentina versus Spain, and Argentina would win in extra time. I’m actually a little bit of an Argentina soccer nut. I was born in Argentina, so it’s funny: My entire life, every four years, people in the building know what my emotion is going to be based on how that game went.
■ Maidie Oliveau: I usually bike 30 miles and do an ocean swim of some distance also.
■ Ailey Penningroth: Waking up without the alarm early enough for a relatively solitary jog/walk in Piedmont Park, capped with a giant unsweet iced tea.
■ Patty Power: A boot camp workout at 7:15 followed by breakfast with my family.
■ Donna Providenti: Yoga class, green juice, gossip magazine.
■ Judy Rose: Take a long walk with my husband and then have breakfast together, just the two of us.
■ Julie Sobieski: Waking up at our place on the cape in Brewster, Mass., going for an early morning run with my 7-year-old and then spending the morning at the bay with my family.
■ Amy Stanton: Yoga and a green juice.
■ Deborah Tymon: Pot of coffee and The New York Times.
■ Lori Webb: Sleeping in past 8 a.m., then lazily reading my paper over a couple cups of coffee before a breakfast of Eggs Benedict and home fries, and not having any chores, obligations or demands placed on me for a whole day.
