After a nice and long four day weekend, I think it is safe to say I am actually looking forward to going back to work today. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home and catching up on those things I long to do throughout the week, but it really is nice to have a schedule and get back into a routine. However, if I had a four day weekend ever week, I don’t think you would catch me complaining!
I am one of those people who have a hard time sitting down when I am home. In hindsight, I wish I would have taken a nap yesterday, but it is hard to sit still when I have laundry, vacuuming, and dishes beckoning me to clean. However, I was able to catch up on a movie I have DVR’d for months (Water for Elephants – It was actually pretty good. I haven’t read the book, but I love Reese Witherspoon so I had a feeling I would enjoy it.), met my husband for lunch at Panera, made a couple quick shopping runs to Target and Hobby Lobby (Does anyone else love that store as much as me?), go for a 2 mile run (the half marathon is Sunday!), finished all cleaning, and ended the night watching a couple shows I enjoy while a candle burned next to me and sent the smell of warm vanilla into the air. A very relaxing, and very much needed night!
I am headed into work early today and want to quickly share some pictures from my weekend.
Someone is getting too big to be a lap dog, but don’t tell him that!
He also found a new way to accommodate his long legs when sitting..
Ha ha I have no idea how this is comfortable, but he sure seemed to enjoy it!
Sunday my parents came over and we had a nice brunch of waffles and turkey bacon.
I got to use my huge serving platter, which I was excited about!
I also got to show them the Crate and Barrel Wine Rack they gave us for Christmas! It finally went up last week, and it looks gorgeous if I do say so myself!
Another change to the house? Out with the old…
What a difference new cabinets handles make! The brass drawer pulls had been bothering me for a while, but now I think the whole kitchen looks fresh, clean, and brand new. It’s the little changes that make the biggest impact sometimes!
On Saturday, we went to a flea market and I was able to get a couple hanging baskets for my porch. I believe the seller said they were filled with asylums (?).
They make me happy!
Tell me about your weekend!
Do you enjoy remodeling/decorating your house?
If you had a day off to do whatever you wanted, what would be on the agenda?
