Why Aren’t There More Weekends?

This weekend was one for the books, ya’ll. It was so great…and I didn’t do anything that spectacular.

Friday after work (I leave work at 4 on Fridays!) I headed to Van Buren (about 20-30 minutes away) and bought some CUTE Fall clothes at Solemates! The sweater I showed you before, a peasant top with beautiful peach and turquoise flowers, and a denim button up that is sooo trendy!

Then I went to Kohl’s (to spend some Kohl’s cash) and got some jeans and a sweater (can you tell I’m ready for Fall?).

I came home and cooked breakfast for dinner for us and we watched TV and lounged around.

I also made my very first Christmas stocking! (Nevermind that the next night I competely screwed one up! THAT is why I always buy extra fabric!)

Saturday I stayed home in the morning working on a side project for my former advisor. I am formatting a book for her…and its tedious, but its extra money…so I’m happy to do it!

Then I met Brooke for a movie. We saw The Help. And it might be one of my favorite movies EVER. I laughed, I cried, I was moved. It is a beautiful, funny, heartwrenching story.

Then I hit up Hobby Lobby (and came home with more fabric to try to learn to quilt! We’ll see how that goes!)

And we ate yummy peppers bolognese for dinner…and watched TV and laughed all evening. We were getting caught up on our USA shows, Dexter, and watching random things on TV, like how they make scotch and bourbon, or a whole show on spicy peppers and how they make hot sauce and grow and rate the peppers.

Sunday we went to church, came home and had leftovers, napped, and I worked on the book while Tyler did yard work. Then we watched more TV and had dinner and relaxed.

I REALLY love weekends with nothing on the schedule. Don’t get me wrong, I love having stuff to do, but once in a while, a lazy weekend is fab.

Remember, you is kind, you is smart, you is important. 🙂
