Time For The Weekend

posted on: Friday, September 12, 2014


This week was a good one for me and I felt like I took full advantage of it! I am just overflowing with gratitude right now. That’s been the theme for me lately. So grateful. I am also exhausted, happy and more than ready for a couple days to do some of my favorite things with my favorite guy! I’m hoping for some yoga tomorrow(well, Adam won’t partake in that), a trip to the farmer’s market (where I took the photo above last summer…I would like to eat all of those blueberries right now..this parentheses has gotten too long…), maybe a trip to go apple picking, a hike (thanks to the gorgeous weather we’re supposed to have on Sunday), and plenty of iced coffee. I love all forms of coffee, but all I’ve been wanting is iced coffee lately. Anyway, I have a good feeling about the weekend and I am more than ready to get to it.

What’s on your agenda this weekend? Make sure to take time for some of your favorite things. It’s good for you!

Happy Monday

Happy Monday to you and you and you! And I’m not being sarcastic…crazy, right? I guess when you’re faced with some big hurdles and you make it to the other side, life seems that much sweeter. So thankful that my grandma is doing well and that I got to hold her hand last week. Also grateful that my father-in-law is doing great. We’re never promised that everything is going to work out okay, and everything worked out and they’re getting better everyday. As hard as last month was, so much good came from it to and I can see that now. My grandma and father-in-law are healing, my relationship with God has gotten so much stronger, we are eating cleaner/healthier than ever before and I feel better than I ever have. I am overwhelmed with gratitude and ready for a great week!

I got home Friday night after a few days in Florida and was reunited with Adam and the girls. I have to say that I am SO happy I made it back home to Ft.Lauderdale and even happier that I got to see so many people that I love in the course of 48 hours. Most of my family is there, so I saw as many of them as I could and also got to see Adam’s parents on our way back home. I also got some much-needed time with my momma. So good for my soul, I tell you! There’s absolutely nothing like family.

As great as last week was, it was also so good to be home and to get to sleep in my own bed. This weekend, Adam and I did whatever the heck we wanted to and it was just what we needed. I left the camera at home and just soaked up time with my favorite guy. We checked out a couple new breweries, spent some time with good friends, had some devotional time at our favorite coffee shop and watched some football.

Now, I’m ready to get back to my routine and back to work. I hope you all have a fantastic week!

As a tough season comes to an end, we shall rest.

[ It’s All Good // Body Book // Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? ]

The weekend has begun. Officially. As of right now, as of right this very minute. Can you feel it? The excitement and relief of a Friday evening? It’s the best.

Today was spent rushing and running around like a madwoman, really. I don’t know why I felt the need to stuff as many errands in as I possibly could get done, but maybe it’s because I am just ready to  r e l a x  already and wanted nothing interrupting that. Adam agrees. Well, he didn’t actually agree with me, but he’s currently napping to my left, so I think that says it all. I just asked him if I could go shopping this weekend and he didn’t say no. So that means yes, right?

I am actually planning on reading all weekend long. You see, I have this habit of putting about ten books on hold at once, because they are all on an incredibly long waiting list. The problem is, I end up getting most of my hold list all at once and what’s a girl to do with herself? READ, dangit! So there’s just some of my reading material up there.

Our real plans for the weekend? Nothing. No, but that’s our plan. Our plan is to do NOTHING! That’s what we have scheduled for ourselves. I can’t remember the last time we had three days to do whatever the heck we wanted to do. We shall enjoy it, we shall rest, we shall celebrate God’s goodness and our families health. This past month, these past few months, really, have felt like hard labor, so it’s pretty darn perfect that we can relax knowing everything is going to be okay. God is good and we are good and our family members are healing. And so, on that note, a very happy labor day weekend to you!

A clean house and lots of rest

This weekend was way better than I expected it to be. Turns out, a night to myself was actually pretty nice. A Saturday to myself, the first lone Saturday I’ve had in forever, was the most productive I’ve had in just as long. After waking up and enjoying my Saturday morning ritual (a hot cup of coffee and Good Morning America), I drove to the gym for a great workout and then headed home for a day of deep cleaning the house. I’m talking the…whole…day. I rushed to finish folding the laundry before meeting Caroline, her husband and friends for a night of jazz at Freedom Park. Then I rushed to the Amtrak station to be reunited with my favorite guy and mini-cupcakes. Best souvenir ever, in my book.

Sunday was h e a v e n l y. We slept TEN HOURS Saturday night. Usually, I feel awful after sleeping that much, but I woke up to the feeling that it was just what I needed. Adam caught whatever I had last week, so I know it’s what he needed as well. We then proceeded to be completely lazy for most of the day, only getting off the couch for some home decor window shopping. I now have this sofa on my wishlist (aka the save-for-a-while list). It’s navy and it’s beautiful and– oh, off topic. Right.

To finish up, we rested some more. I prayed that Sunday would be rejuvenating and that’s just what it was. After the last two weeks, I’m a little anxious for the start of this one, but hopefully it’ll be absolutely wonderful. Wishing you a great one!
