Good morning, y’all — I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Did you do anything special?
That someecard just about sums up how I feel about Monday mornings. I’d love to be one of those people who doesn’t feel like this when a new work week starts, but alas…if you were to ask me whether I’m ok with the weekend being over, I’d be all:
Anyways, despite the general lousiness of Monday morning, I had a lovely weekend! It was strangely busy yet not busy; we had a lot of domestics to take care of, so I ran a lot of errands.
While I know this makes me a complete weirdo, I’ll full-out admit this: I really like running errands. Getting out and blazing through my to-do list like General Sherman through the South just plain makes me happy. I love being productive, even if it just involves routine life maintenance tasks — so errands actually make me a happy cowgirl.
The only thing I don’t like about errands? The fact that there’s never enough time in which to do them. The fact that I can only do said errands after work and on weekends is cramping my style, y’all. I’m not feelin’ it. Sadly, though, I have yet to win the lottery — so the chances of me being able to morph into a lady of leisure any time soon are about nil.
Anyways, despite the time crunch this weekend, there were some fairly marvelous moments. Thanks as always to Katie from Healthy Diva Eats for hosting Marvelous in My Monday!
First and foremost, I got my hair did on Friday night with a new stylist, and she’s freakin’ awesome.
I had some failed attempts at a selfie in order to display the haircut, since I’m no bueno with selfies (as you can tell, I was concentrating too hard on taking the picture to, y’know, smile — oops!). This one is the best one that actually shows what my haircut (just past my shoulders with long layers) looks like.
Anyways, this haircut was extra exciting because I feel like a really good stylist is a rare find. This is especially true since I have super-thick hair (and loads of it). People have been known to get a bit slap-happy with the scissors and wind up butchering my tresses — or, in the case of a guy who was making a futile attempt at doing my hair for a friend’s wedding a couple years ago, threatening to cut it all off and shave my head. (No joke. Homeslice actually said this. I was unimpressed.)
But I digress! The “hashtag, winning” motif continued on Saturday, when we started the day with GF blueberry pancakes.Y’all, they were so effing good. I love these things. King Arthur Flour wins!
That afternoon we saw Star Trek: Into Darkness, and yo. It was awesome. (Also, can I just say that Chris Pine is dreamy?) I’m really excited for the other movies coming out this summer, especially Man of Steel and Despicable Me II. It’ll be the perfect way to spend the oppressively hot and humid DC summer!
While running errands on Sunday, I managed to pick up this adorable mug from Marshall’s. (Marshall’s is a close second to Target as one of my favorite stores — there’s such awesome stuff there, and it’s all so cheap! *Claps hands, squeals in delight*) I’m going to take it to work for some gigantic mugs of tea. Yeah, I know that tea isn’t exactly a summery beverage…hence the summery mug. A girl’s gotta be seasonal somehow, amirite?
And now, with the weekend officially-for-real-no-shizzle over, I’m off to get my sweat on. Hope everyone has a fabulous Monday!
Did you do anything special this weekend?
If you went shopping, what sort of new loot did you pick up?
Are there any summer movies you’re particularly excited about?
