Happy Monday my loves. I thank everyone for all your sweet words on Friday last week was rough! I think it was because the weekends are where I get everything settled and accomplished so that when the week hits I’m not playing catch up. After my bachelorette weekend all I felt like was behind….the entire week. For once in a long time I can actually say I am looking forward to Monday because I got so much done this weekend and finally feel a little more at ease. Linking up with B and Meghan!
So Friday was nuts. I don’t like reliving aggravating situations but it was like every single person was sending me texts, Facebook messages, smoke signals, message in a bottle etc with questions about the wedding. Plus it was just a crazy week with work….like bizarre draining patients….so by the time I collapsed in Jesse’s chair I looked like death, my hair was too many days to remember dirty and I needed some uplifting spirits. Luckily my hairdresser who is also a wonderful friend of mine naturally brought me back to a level of normal sanity. Plus you always feel better when your hair looks fabulous right?
I was totally taking this selfie in the car and Jesse walked out and caught me……..busted. Let me go and bury my head now. Please ignore the no makeup…..big sunglasses hides all am I right?
After sitting in insane amount of traffic back I decided that I wasn’t going to let it get to me. I blasted some Taylor Swift, sang to myself and took in the gorgeous sunset on the drive home. This cop and I totally had T swift car dancing in common. Don’t worry bro I absolutely use both hands when I’m really feeling a song as well.
I arrived home to Mark making tacos. Not just any tacos mind you. Nacho shell tacos. Let me tell you…..they were worth it. I really need to get around to that wedding diet….
We fancied it up by pairing it with this. I highly recommend it. Rivals some of the higher end Russian River Valley Pinot Noirs. I want to say it was around $12.99 I believe.
Saturday I had to enjoy the gorgeous day out and met one of my girlfriends over at the new waterfront restaurant that just opened Ulele. Note to self next time open table it. An hour and a half for lunch???? We ended up hovering over people, grabbing seats and eating at the bar. The food was delicious full review this week.
One of my New Year’s goals was to actually use my fancy schmancy expensive camera more. My best friend Veniece has a great eye for photography. I set up the camera and let her go.
She said I can pay her in cocktails….done. The one on the left “ring of fire” mine on the right “native Summer” I highly recommend!
The rest of the weekend was spent trying to clean and make some organization of this new living abode of mine. Mark was gone at a softball tournament (solo behavior time) so I primped from head to toe. Oh yes it was the ugly mud masks and pedicure time. It is safe to say I have officially taken over both bathrooms. Mark is just going with it. Living with a man requires two bathrooms that is all I have to say about that subject.
Speaking of breaking out the camera I even used the tripod. Say what? Look at my new makeup storage and LED makeup light. You thought you were plucking your eyebrows before…..oh with that bad boy I discovered things that I didn’t even know existed on my face. Total Sex and the City moment of an hour spent in front of that mirror this weekend. Definitely broke out every mask and cleanser after that horror.
Sunday night was spent blogging and watching the Pats dominate! Belichick was styling as always
Curled up with my besties
How was your weekend? What do you do when you are crazy stressed to help bring you back to sanity? Hope you have a fabulous day! xoxoxoxo
