Have you ever just had one of those weekends that puts you in a really happy place? Nothing was planned, but the plans all worked out and you had an absolutely incredible weekend? No? Well I did. So here’s how it all went down.
Friday night was epic. I have been working a TON lately so I knew that I was going to just relax and take it easy. Recharge. Rest. Which is exactly what I did. I ordered pizza and watched 5 episodes of Showtimes SMILF. I would have watched more, but I only had 5 left to watch. It might be one of the funniest shows I have ever watched. The main character is so quick and drops the best one liners. I can’t wait for season two!
Saturday was even better than Friday. I woke up ON MY OWN! No alarm. No phone calls. Nothing. There is nothing I hate more than being woken up by a phone call from someone I don’t want to talk to at the moment. It’s usually my mom calling to bitch at me or ask me to do something for her (that she is fully capable of doing herself) and it ALWAYS puts me in a sour mood. I know it’s something I need to work on, but for now, I hate it. So Saturday I woke up, had coffee and watched hours of food network. FN is usually what I have on for my background noise. Around 3, the fireman showed up. Now before you freak out, this was a hired fireman. I ordered a new dresser from Wayfair a couple weeks ago and nearly had a panic attack when I unwrapped the pieces from the boxes they sent me. I knew there was no way in hell I would ever get that thing put together so I hired an off duty fireman to come to my house and assemble the dresser for me. Now, he did it wearing clothes which I was bummed about, but he told me it was the hardest piece of furniture he had ever assembled. So I felt better about my decision to spend the money on hiring someone.
While he was there, I got a text from a girlfriend asking me if I wanted 4 free tickets to the baseball game at 6:10. Of course I did. Now, who was I going to ask? Well, it ended up just my dad and I being able to go. And it was actually the best decision. We had a great time just the two of us hanging out watching the game. Something we haven’t ever done just the two of us. We stayed most of the game and even went to grab some oysters and dirty martini’s afterward. It was so nice for just the two of us to hang. After I left dinner, I went to meet up with some girlfriends who I hadn’t hung out with in quite a while. We ended up downtown and had a blast drinking and dancing the night away. After a 25 min wait in the Whataburger drive through, I was home and finally asleep by 4 am!
The next morning, I had to get my ass in gear. I had to pick up a few gifts for my grandma who we were having a late lunch with for Mother’s day. We had a the best Brunch and the best time as a family for a couple hours before we went our separate ways. I headed off to do some shopping at Anthropology and found nothing. I am needing some new handles for my new dresser and I didn’t find anything that I loved at Anthro. I paid 3 bucks to park for an hour, so I figured I would browse around a few other stores. I found a cute 85 percent off planner at the Paper Source and the cutest top/dress at Free People that I spent wayyyy too much money on. After I was done browsing, I headed to IKEA. I walked the entire damn store and left with NOTHING. I was actually quite sad about it because I need some things for my room, but didn’t find anything that I loved. So off to Target I went. I almost always grab a popcorn while I wander around Target, and today was no different. Didn’t find anything I wanted at Tarj other than a few essentials for the casa. But found a 30 dollar gift card in my wallet I forgot about, so score one for me. After Target I headed home for a night on the couch with my pup. I had a ton of stuff I could have done, but it was great to just relax and recharge for a full week ahead.
Did you do anything exciting this weekend? Are you ready for the week ahead? I would love to connect with some people and hear from you.
