Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was lovely - and Al was able to come home early from his business trip so we were able to spend most of Sunday together! Here are a few photos...
I worked late Friday night and came home with just enough energy to eat and watch tv (lfive straight episodes of Good Eats). I was laughing with my mom that we both usually eat cereal when our men our out of town. If I didn't have Al I think I'd cook a whole lot less. (And yes, Lily got to slurp the milk when I was finished.)
Saturday morning we were up bright and early. Except Lily still wanted to lay awake in bed. I obliged for an hour or so.
Things I do when my husband is gone #165: style my toast.
Spent the afternoon doing a little shopping. I went to Gap with hopes of coming away with some good loot, and ended up leaving empty handed. I just can't bring myself to buy another sweater. I'm sick of sweaters. I did snag a few things from H&M and Sephora. Just what I need - another sweatshirt and more liquid liner. I am pretty in love with the under-eye concealer I bought. Really brightens up my dark circles! And also nabbed a new pair of tweezers since I think I've had mine since I first started plucking my eyebrows - so what, since I was 12? And the cute soft-pink peplum top is going to get a lot of use this spring.
Later watched some more Good Eats (I go on these huge Alton Brown kicks occasionally) while doing my nails and snacking. I joked on instagram that these are all things girls like. It's pretty much what my desk looked like in my sorority. :)
Saturday night I made myself a big bowl of cacio e pepe before going to meet my girlfriends. Apparently, I only eat sugar or carbs when Al is away.
Celebrated our friend Emily's birthday. Love these girls. (That's confetti in Em's hair, btw. ☺And of course, I'm holding Zoey, our friend's pooch. We're in love, me and Zoey.)
Sunday Lily and I got the groceries. And by "get the groceries" I mean haul them up from our lobby. Tough work. Such a little city pup riding the luggage cart.
And then Al came home! He still had to work, but at least he was home. Lily and I napped next to him and kept him company.
Supper was turkey melts and crock pot potato soup (with my frozen broccoli trick - add it in the last 30 minutes of cooking).
And today I'm totally feeling like this. Just...can't...quite...make...it. That's Monday for ya.
Hope you had a cheery weekend!
