Weekend Shenanigans - I Needed This

Monday, November 17, 2014

This weekend was awesome.

It wasn't anything spectacular, but it was definitely one that I needed.  It was the something to help turn my Negative Nancy Pants attitude back onto the right path.  This weekend helped me make take a step towards that change.

Saturday was a day with the girls.  We spent the morning shopping at the Holiday Mart and then an afternoon of lunch and locally brewed beer.  And lots of girl talk.  Damn it was a good afternoon.  While my husband was a little bitter about the outcome of the Notre Dame game, I truly loved being able to let the stress that has been building up go and enjoy time with myself, friends and family.

Sunday was another day of family time.  We started our day out with donuts, an early fire in the fire place and dancing in the kitchen.  I was even able to get in a 3 mile run while enjoying a fabulous surprise - a Sex and the City marathon.  Both of the kids stayed in their jammies all day and my husband and I attempted to tackle our to-do lists.  I'm starting to feel a bit more prepared for Lola's party next weekend.  It's a bit of a relief when I remember I'm not hosting it at my house and rather at my husband's work.  Seriously, the cleaning aspect would have put me over the edge.  But the cakes have been ordered, the outfit assembled and the birthday garlands sewed.  Now it's just a matter of tying up the final loose ends like the food and things for the candy bar.


Yes.  I said candy bar.  Don't judge.

It's the little things that count the most.  Sometimes when you feel like you are pushed to your limit, the things you truly need will come out of nowhere to bring you back away from the ledge.
This weekend was my stabilizer.

Five more school days until a week off -- can I get an AMEN??

How was your weekend?


  1. I love weekends where you have nothing more to do but just hang out and relax. We had one of those. I'm calling it the calm before the storm as it is about to get busy here!

  2. I love your sweet photos! No judgement from me over the candy bar! Now I need to plan a relaxing weekend..... I badly need it!

  3. love those cute girly outfits! I SO wish we had a fireplace, that's one thing I really miss in our house. There's just something so relaxing about sitting by the fire with a good cup of *something* and a book! (and in our house a purring cat)
