Hello Monday

I debated doing my weekend recap on Tuesday or today, but decided to stick with my normal routine.  We are off today and have some appointments.  I plan to read some MLK quotes today.  I remember when my boys were in elementary school one of them said: “I always get Martin Luther King and Morgan Freeman confused.”  Boy, did they make us laugh!  

I was able to take my own advice I gave a long time ago about going out on a Friday to maximize your weekend fun.  As much as I wanted to just stay home, one son had a play to attend with a friend and my husband and I took him and then walked to a nearby brewery that has live music and Mexican food.  We were back home by 9:30 and it was a nice night out.  I tried the pineapple beer and really liked it – We will definitely be going back!

Saturday we woke up to rain, rain, and more rain.  I took one son to play practice and then was meeting my two friends for brunch.  We ate at Wild Eggs and then did some shopping.

This little clutch was under $5 because it was 70% off!

The rain changed to snow Saturday night and this is what it looked like Sunday for a few errands.

Sunday was just a lazy day of laundry, cleaning, reading (finished My Favorite Half Night Stand by Christina Lauren -loved it, but warning that it’s a bit dirty), Netflix watching – You – Oh my gosh! – Don’t start it if you can’t afford to get sucked in, and errand running.  Sunday evening our boys had plans to go to a movie so after dropping them off, we went to Drake’s for some football.

Also, I started this book and it’s cute so far!

    1. Thank you! I’m at the stage in life where I’m trying to squeeze in fun for me in the middle of my boys’ social lives! We are not close to them driving yet! Did you finish the whole You series? I’m on the last episode. So many thoughts! First: it’s not that hard to getcha some curtains, Beck! So much could’ve been avoided! Argh! I can’t do the folding. I don’t have much not on a hanger. I heard that this is a great time for thrift store shopping bc of the Tidying up movement! Haha! Hope you are off today!

  2. I ordered that book from Friday and I cannot wait to get it! I loved your weekend. I love going out to dinner on Friday and being home a little earlier and able to relax. Three day weekends are the best, enjoy yours!

  3. We woke up to just a bit of snow too but unfortunately for us the rest of the day was lots of freezing rain and sleet. Ugh! Everything is so icy and cold now.

    1. Ice is the worst! Do you have cabin fever yet? I have been able to get out – just waiting til the sun comes out and helps it a bit! Have a great week!

  4. Ok I am so jealous – the brewery with a cool looking band, Mexican food and craft ale is like a dream for me and just the type of place I’d want to go to in the States. Nothing like that here! J xx
