Weekending: Easy & Fun

Good Morning Monday

Happy Monday my friends! I’m feeling pretty good going into this week…I’m looking forward to a conference at the end of the week for a huge charity that my company supports. I went last year for the first time and it was truly amazing so I’m excited to go again but I have to be very productive in the office today and tomorrow. I had the perfect weekend to prepare for a big workweek: a balance of fun, productivity and relaxing!

Friday night I hit the gym after work and then hit my bed and did. not. move. I really needed a lazy bum kind of night and got to catch up on a bunch of shows. Saturday morning I slept in, which I feel like I haven’t done in forever, and had a nice relaxing morning with some coffee and reading while Jeff was off fishing.

Then I went on a run – the weather was gorgeous all weekend – and I got some house work done and had lunch with a friend. Saturday night we had a laid back date night. We went to see Deadpool – HILARIOUS!

Sunday we spent the afternoon at the local farmer’s market and took the dogs with us this time. They love being out and about. Did I mention that the weather was too perfect this weekend?

We stopped for lunch at Graffitti Junktion and I had a delicious Buffalo Chicken Salad. Scotch was OUT pretty much the whole time we were there.

Afterwards, we came home to relax (the dogs were pooped) and Jeff made us a smoked fish dip from the fish he caught Saturday morning. It was AMAZING – I’ll definitely be sharing the recipe!

It was one of those weekends that remind me how great the weekend can be! I’m feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the week!


How was your weekend? What are you looking forward to this week?
