Good morning, everyone, and welcome to another week! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend – along those lines, I want to give a shout-out to Meghan for running (and kicking butt) in the Tough Mudder on Saturday. Rock on, Meghan! (*Imagine me cheering and waving pom-poms.*) 🙂
My weekend can best be described as Objective: R&R. While it was super low-key – which I must say, is pretty darn marvelous in and of itself – there were many other marvelous things that only added to the experience. As always, thanks to Katie from Healthy Diva Eats for hosting!
As I mentioned yesterday, I’m now a confirmed Arrested Development junkie. I’m so, so glad we decided to start watching it, because my world has been immeasurably enriched by the antics of the Bluth family.
I’ve been having lots of this tea lately, and I love it. It’s delicious, refreshing, and energizing. It ain’t coffee, but it’s fabulous in its own way!
This weekend I also became the proud owner of a veritable crap-ton of CVS coupons. CVS coupons are hit or miss, but these hit the jackpot. I get inordinately excited about stuff like this – if I had the time, I’d be all about couponing. I take what I can get, though!
Yesterday’s experiment in the kitchen yielded some awesome results: these Bananas Foster Muffin Tops. They’re effin’ delicious! (I also might have already eaten half the batch in the 24 hours since they came out of the oven. No shame.)
I also hit up Target for a few staples on Saturday, and while I was there, I…bought the whole store. Well, ok, not quite — but they were having a sale on cardigans, and I’m a serious cardigan junkie. Here in DC, once the summer heat and humidity arrive, most buildings go no holds barred with the A/C. It’s pumpin’ on overdrive from May through September, and for cold-blooded folks like myself, this means layers are imperative. Cardigans are my go-to choice for summer layering, since I can stuff them in my bag when I’m outdoors and then throw them on once I’m back in the air-conditioned splendor. I picked up a white cardigan in addition to these two beauties:
I also got a cute skirt and a t-shirt to add to my summer sartorial selection. (Ok, I totally had to reach for the alliteration on that one. Forgive me!)
I also got to have a long and wonderful chat with my friend Sam, which was fantastic. Catching up with friends is a truly wonderful thing!
Hopefully you all had a fabulous weekend — I hope you all have equally fabulous Mondays! (Ok, so that’s totally not likely unless you adore your job, in which case I’d like to live vicariously through you — but hey, we can hope!)
What was your favorite moment from this weekend?
Do you have to restrain yourself from buying ALL THE THINGS when you go to Target?
Do you live in an area where summers involve uber-chilled buildings?
What’s your favorite summer fashion trend?
A brief health update: apologies in advance for being all Debbie Downer (wah-waaaaaaah)/TMI up in here, but here’s the sitch: the acute lady-troubles that plagued me last week got a lot worse yesterday into last night. I’m taking a sick day have a tete-a-tete with my doctor and possibly get more tests done, so hopefully we can get to the bottom of this and fix me up. My fingers (and toes) are crossed that things return to normal, stat! If prayers/happy thoughts/good vibes are your thing, please send some my way — this whole gig has me more than a little bit nervous.
