Happy Monday, everyone! How are we? Did everyone have a marvelous weekend?
Aaron had plans for the night, heading down to the convention center to try a bunch of different beer. He was really excited about it and I thought I might go out or head to my parents. Instead, I gave myself the best treat. I gave myself the entire night to just spend on me! It really meant tackling my to do list, but it was a huge treat. Dinner was in the crock pot, and things were going great! I crossed a lot off my list, which saved me from having to do a lot over the weekend. It’s the little things in life..
Needless to say one way I treated myself was going to bed at an early bedtime! I loved that. I woke up when Aaron came home but those late night talks are some of my favorites. I woke up on Saturday ready for the day, and got in a treadmill run to start it off. After completing that, I worked on my to-dos even more. I swear as I finished one thing, another thing popped up. Does that happen to you? I did find some time to bake these delicious treats!
My brother-in-law was being honored for becoming president of an honor society as a freshman in college, so we went to it to support him. It was later in the afternoon by the time that happened, and it lasted longer than we thought it would. We then went to visit my sister-in-law who was in the hospital, unexpectedly. She’s alright, but was in immense pain and they discovered it was a kidney stone that isn’t passing through.
Sometimes things happen that we aren’t sure what to do. Yes, my SIL was in the hospital and obviously we wanted to make sure she was okay! But, I was also supposed to go down to the Hofbrahaus to celebrate one of my college roommate’s birthdays. I had been looking forward to this as I haven’t seen my old roommates for a while, but life throws curveballs sometimes and we just have to deal with them. We didn’t get home until after 9, and knew by the time I was ready and drove down, people would be leaving. I’m looking forward to scheduling a day to get together with all of them, though!
Sunday was relaxing. I haven’t had many relaxing Sundays as they seem to always be go go go, but this was needed. First of all, on Friday we were told we would be getting 8-12 inches of snow today. That changed and we woke up to snow covering the roads Sunday morning. We chose not to go to church as the last thing we wanted was to be stuck in the snow somewhere. It’s always played online at 10:45 so we watched it then instead. The rest of the day included food prep, finishing up some posts, making a workout schedule, painting my nails, and just relaxing! Glorious!
Oh, did I mention I stayed in these pajamas until 4 when I showered? And then I put on new ones? Ha, lazy Sunday, indeed!
The Oscars were on last night, and I am a huge fan of Ellen. I thought she did a great job hosting! For the first year, ever, I actually saw a lot of the films up for best picture! I usually have never seen any, so this was a plus.
And now it’s back to a work week! Hope you make the most of it, friends! If you’re getting hit with snow today, I hope you at least got the day off or are able to not head out in it!
