I keep saying happy Monday, but let’s be real, Monday isn’t the happiest day. Well if it is day one of your vacation then it may be a happy day but I digress. It’s Monday and it has been awhile since I have done a weekend recap. The theme of my weekend recap is “Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder”. The boyfriend sadly had a death in the family last week so I was away from him from Wednesday through Friday. We talked so it wasn’t like we were isolated from each other, we just didn’t see each other every day. By the time Friday night rolled around and I went down to his families to see him I was excited to see him and had missed him. Though Saturday was a long day with the funeral, burial and then having people over to his families after I was happy to be near him again.
So Sunday was really the only weekend day we got since when we got home Saturday afternoon I took a few hour nap and then we ordered salads and watched House of Cards for the rest of the night. Sunday made up for it though! I couldn’t sleep in, so I got up around 8:30 and made some of my new coffee (you will see tomorrow on a Treat Yourself Tuesday) and then decided I was going to clean the pantry. I got the idea from a few different blogs I’m reading right now. I think a lot of people are getting restless with this winter so they are organizing and cleaning out their homes. I tackled the pantry yesterday and the before and after pictures are awesome (for another day, I need to upload from my camera)
I was hoping to find a ton of canned goods or foods that I had bought and not eaten, but it looks like I really only purchase food for what I need that week as the end result was only two cans of diced tomatoes. After I cleaned the pantry I started to do some laundry and make some breakfast, at which time the boyfriend rolled out of bed and sleepily walked into the kitchen wondering what the heck was going on. I was on an energy kick from moving around and all the coffee so I strapped on my running shoes and decided to go outside for my 3.5 mile run.
The weather was awesome but the shoveling skills of our town are less than awesome, more like awful. I can’t say this enough, I cannot wait to leave this stupid town!! On a positive note, I attached my running mix since it’s been awhile.
When I got home the boyfriend and I decided we were going to go bowling so we headed into Boston. We had such a good afternoon and I was really excited when we had to go into the Prudential Building and buy something since we needed our parking validated. I made my way to Sephora to get a perfume to try, jury is still out. By the time we got home I was STARVING! Feeling inspired from a few new blogs I’m reading I made a peanut butter fruit grilled sandwich. I was craving a tad more sweetness though so I decided to put some Nutella in there. It was phenomenal!
After snack I continued with the laundry I started that morning and we finished the House of Cards episodes. It was such a great Sunday which is making me a tad more happy on this Monday morning.
I hope everyone else had a great weekend!
