I can’t believe that this was the first weekend in probably two months that we actually had a weekend at home without ANY plans. Although we managed to fill the weekend with lots of errands, it was so nice to be able to do them on our own time table without worrying about having to be somewhere else. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so I thought that I’d let y’all know what I’m currently doing to end this relaxing weekend at home.
WATCHING- Game of Thrones, of course! Thank goodness Game of Thrones started the week after Walking Dead ended, otherwise I think that Chris and I would’ve gone crazy without having one of these shows to watch on Sunday. I’ve read all of the books, so this season it’s been pretty interesting to watch how the show and the books meet up, and to see how some things change.
READING- Splendor Falls by Susanna Kearsley. The Winter’s Sea was the first book by Susanna Kearsley that I read, and I instantly fell in love with her and her books. She typically writes historical fiction and some of her books center around the same time period as the Outlander books, the Scottish uprising. So if you’re interested in that time period I definitely recommend looking into her books. I just started Splendor Falls, so I’ll have to let you know how it is!
EATING- Pho! Chris and I started a new tradition of Sunday Pho-Day a couple of months back, where we have pho on Sundays. We found a small Vietnamese restaurant close to our house that has excellent pho, and Chris and I seriously can’t get enough of it! I think that I could eat that noodle soup all day e’ery day!
DRINKING- A wonderful glass of red wine from Napa, a Duckhorn Cabernet. You know those shows where everybody is always drinking something, like on Real Housewives of NYC Ramona is always drinking Pinot Grigio, well Game of Thrones, they’re always drinking red wine. It almost seems like you’re sharing a glass with the characters when you’re drinking what they’re drinking.
WEARING- Some stretchy PJ pants, I just had a huge bowl of pho! Plus, let’s face it, it’s Sunday night, and what better way to enjoy it than by having some comfortable pants on.
PLANNING- This really should say “needing to plan” instead of planning. It’s so crazy to me that April is almost finished, which means that the summer and July is right around the corner, which means that Hawaii is also right around the corner! So far, our flights and hotels are booked, and I have a few ideas about what we’re going to do when we get there, but that’s all! Super crazy for me who practically had our Disney trip planned out minute for minute a couple of months in advance. I really need to get the ball rolling and get some things booked so we have a general idea for what we’ll be doing while we’re there, besides relaxing.
FEELING- Accomplished and ready to take on the week! Chris and I got a lot of things checked off our to do list this weekend, and a completed to do list always makes you feel ready to conquer the week.
WISHING- For three days weekends! Even though we accomplished a lot this weekend and still managed to relax, I still would really like to have that third day where I don’t have to do anything! Am I the only one that sometimes likes to not get out of my PJ’s on some weekends?
LOVING- My new place settings that I got from Pier 1 this weekend. One of my good friends always had her dining room table set, even if she wasn’t having people coming over for dinner. It always looked so inviting and welcoming, so I decided to do the same thing at our house. I started off last year and got different settings for Fall and Christmas/Winter, and we just got the cutest settings for Spring and Summer. I’m in love!
Well, that’s all I have for y’all on this Monday morning. I hope that y’all have a great start to the week, and there aren’t too many “cases of the Mondays” out there!
