Break From the Busyness

Happy Monday! I am trying to approach this day with a happy heart but can we all just take a moment and talk about how fast weekends fly by? My weekend was excellent though. It was really slow paced which was just what I have been needing after six weeks of go-go-go with lots of travel, holidays, and commitments.

Saturday I got to wake up nice and slowly and sip coffee in bed while I read, and I am pretty sure it was after noon when I finally decided to get up and do something productive. I made up for it by cleaning the house (with Ronnie's help) and then I cleaned out my pantry which was straight terrifying. Sunday I served in the baby room at church like usual, and did grocery shopping, got a good workout in and my mom fed me dinner which is always a nice treat. The entire weekend felt so very grown up. Gone are the days of college weekends, my friends. Long live.

Today I am linking up with Juliette who is hosting this clever Blog Every Day in July link-up. I'm truly grateful for the long list of posts ideas because I am sure you are about ready to click that little red X in the corner after my detailed run-down of my boring weekend. So, I'm finishing a few sentences today. Enjoy!

When I open the fridge freezer I always hope I find...Tillamook Ice Cream 

 My favorite article of clothing is...A hideous yellow Turkey Day 10K Race t-shirt I got last year when I ran the a race on Thanksgiving. It is the softest shirt I’ve ever worn made out of some magical cotton that feels like I am laying in a cloud of happiness and I never want to take it off. It looks especially good on me when I pair it with my red and white HO-HO-HO Christmas pjs. I'd show you a picture but I think that could come back to haunt me someday if I post that on the interwebz.

 Last week I was really pissed when...Ronnie wouldn’t wear the cow-costume printable ears, tail, nose and spots I printed for Free Chick-Fil-A day. I would definitely dress up like a cow for free Chick-Fil-A, in fact, there’s not much I WOULDN’T do for free chick fila but he was being a poor sport. 

One thing nobody understands about me is...that sometimes I just need to come home from work and immediately lay in my bed and eat cookie butter straight from the jar and watch Greys reruns . 

 One thing I don't understand is...why we don’t get summer, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Spring breaks in the real world. 

 The world would be a better place if... women got one day off a work per month, no questions asked for that time of the month. 

 If I had a million dollars I'd…Buy a house with a HUGE bathtub. And a pool. I'd also take many vacations because traveling makes my heart happy.

If could change one thing about myself, it would be...To be more easy breezey, spontaneous, and less of a crazy type A control freak. 

Something that can always make me happy is...Coffee.

 Something I'll never blog about is...people I am upset with. Unless I do it in code and in a passive aggressive, vague way. 

 If I could go anywhere I would go... somewhere with a beach and zero responsibilities. Being an adult is hard.

If I were an animal I would be because they have the best lives and they make their own rules. In fact, my cat has picked up the habit of rubbing nicely against my legs as I make my coffee and then out of nowhere, biting my leg. He does what he wants and he makes no apologies.

A job I've always wanted is… a stay at home mom with no kids and no house work. 

My idea of a perfect day is...sleeping in and waking up slowly, preferably I’d be woken up with by husband with a cup of coffee and breakfast (BACON) in bed, and then I’d spend my morning reading a good book on my kindle or watching Scandal (because in a perfect world, it would never take MONTH LONG BREAKS). Then I suppose I’d like to do something fun like go to a cute coffee shop or lunch on a patio with a fruity drink and basically, have zero responsibilities or commitments. Going to an outdoor country concert would be on my list of perfect activities as well. I’d also like to end this day with eating ice cream in bed while watching more Scandal, but Chicago PD or Chicago Fire would also do.



  1. Isn't it sad when the most perfectly comfortable clothing is also the ugliest??

  2. I really wish I could be less type A and breezy too! And amen to getting THAT day off each month, that would be much needed.

  3. UMMM PERFECT DAY. But really, that's the best day ever. Add me in that patio date with a fruity drink. And I currently have on my favorite clothing--zebra print pajama pants and an old sorority t-shirt that is a 3xL, circa 2009. Ugly, but perfect. I wish I was more spontaneous. I'm working on that, slowly but surely. Will you take me on a vacay with you if you win a million dollars? Oh, and I'm currently lying in bed watching Grey's. Gotta work tonight, so trying to "rest." Hope your Monday is going well, sister! LOVE YOU!

  4. I'm with you on the day of every month! And I loved your dream job! HA! I love grey's re-runs or doesn't matter. :)

  5. Mmmm... coffee. I think I agree... that is definitely something that can almost always make me happy as well!!

  6. I always feel like I need a break from the busy. It would be so nice to just unplug and hang with some great people for a few days !

    So Much Sunshine

  7. Sometimes ALL you really need is to just come home from work, put on sweats and lay in bed while eating cookie butter and watching Grey's. If anything it's therapeutic and people just don't understand :)
