I want to be mad at Monday but since I have a 3 day week I am not really mad at it! In case you missed it I had a slight not yet mid-life crisis, you can read about it here. So this weekend was about time to myself. Not just lazy watch Breading Bad time (which I did too) but time to actually sit and think and plan. Let me tell you it was really beneficial. It is not that I am not grateful for where my life is, but that I know I can live my life more mindful and intentional with goals in mind. I am already an avid list maker so it was more like a list of yearly/life goals. Either way I sat down and decided on the 3 things I wanted to change or put a little more focus on and came up with a short and long term goal for each. More than likely will share more info soon. So needless to say my weekend was successful but maybe not as interesting. Which I am totally ok with it. I did get a few things done so on with the show!
Friday: Since I wanted to have most of the weekend free from errands I ran around like a crazy person after getting home from work. I headed to Ulta Beauty Supply. I was so disappointed since the two things I wanted they didn’t have in stock but I did get a few goodies.
The Revlon Colorburst in Bejeweled and NYX Eyeshadow in White
Then I headed to Christmas Tree shop. I didn’t take pictures of what I got because I am ashamed of everything I got (I filled a huge basket). I only went in to look at candles and coffee mugs and ended up with way more!! It’s not my fault I like a good bargain. Though I did not get this nonsense!
Then I hit the Halloween supply store for a few items for my costume and I saw this little gem.
Saturday: I started the morning with some coffee and worked on finishing my book. Which I did. 🙂
I looked through some magazines to find this recipe I wanted to modify. Problems of a foodie! This is only my magazines not recipe books. Eek.
I made the original recipe for my Dad once and I had an idea what I wanted to use. So I headed to the grocery store for the ingredients and food for the week. I spent the rest of the afternoon writing down goals and plans. Then for dinner I made Chorizo Pot Pie, and it was AMAZING!! I am so excited to put this recipe together because it was so good! Recipe coming soon.
I watched a few episodes of Breaking Bad while knitting. Exciting I know, contain yourself! 🙂
Sunday: Nothing like starting the day with a yummy breakfast!
Then I was a willy coyote of cleaning (dishes, laundry, bathrooms) you know the usual suspects. I made my two cakes from Tuesday’s class and more frosting. A few more episodes of Breaking Bad with a little more planning. I watched the Patriots game and took Seamus for a walk during halftime.
Once the Patriots lost in overtime 🙁 I raked the leaves, made dinner and then sat down for some bloggity blog writing with a little refreshment.
So it was a little bit productive, a little bit reflective, and a little bit relaxing. Overall pretty good weekend!
How was your weekend?
