Day In The Life//Friday

Hi friends, happy Monday! How was your weekend? What did you do? What kind of ice cream did you eat? What Pokemon did you catch? If you can answer that last question, please don’t. I’m thanking you in advance.

While my weekend was mostly spent packing for my move (just across town | NH is home), I thought it’d be fun to share my Friday with you, since it was a bit out of the norm of a typical Friday.

There were so many wonderful parts to my day, starting with finally being back in my gym after 3 days away. It felt like a lot longer than that, but seeing familiar faces sure was nice!

After my workout, it was the typical day of work, but instead of working until 5, our boss let us leave at 3, since we worked hard in Dallas. Yay!

First stop was visiting this little furball. Why must you be so cute? I could kiss his little face all day long. My smoosh!


And then it was on to the library to stock up on a book or two for our beach vacation next week. I arrived with my “must-read” list.


I have a really hard time saying “no” to books at the library, so naturally I left with 5 lengthy books. I do this to myself every single time.imageAt 3:45, just as I was leaving the library, my friend Sarah, the lovely and hilarious face behind Everyday Sarah Jane, texted me asking what I was doing. Teacher friends who have the summer off are the best. I headed over to her house for an hour of girl talk on her deck. Oh how I love that girl!  imageAnd then it was time for date night, which I had been looking forward to all week. I was given a dozen of the most beautiful red roses that I have ever seen, and a jar of peanut butter. That’s how you woo a girl. The date was a lot of fun, and I’m definitely glad that I said yes to the date.imageI’m kind of digging how the roses look in the Lily Pulitzer tumbler. My Dad offered me a vase just last weekend and I said no, simply because I never receive flowers; great timing on my denial, but I think I might start buying myself flowers every few weeks once I’m settled in my new place.

This weekend was a nice reminder to stop and smell the roses every now and again, to kick back with a book in the sun, and to spend even a quick hour with a friend catching up in person rather than via text.

imageWhat did your weekend look like?

What is the best and worst thing you’ve ever been given on a date?

    Not a bad weekend in SC – planned to go see Sugar Ray, Everclear and LIT on Friday night but didn’t feel like attending an outdoor concert in the rain, so did a mini bar crawl with friends instead. Saturday, hit the driving range, the golf store, went shopping and had dinner out w/ my hubby. Sunday, played 18 holes and had a couple delicious fruity drinks at a beach bar down the street. Only caught a few pokemon.

    HAHA POKEMON GO. I live right by the Potomac, and I was running the other day and saw four grown dudes standing on the rocks by the water trying to catch a Squirtle. Like, come on you guys.

    Anywho, solid weekend, sister friend. Especially the rose + pb part. 🙂

      I hate to admit it, but I think the only way I would play Pokemon Go was if it was with you. I’m pretty happy to have another jar of pb in my pantry. Score!

    Driving with the Top Down is a MUST read girl! Such a good book. I’m enjoying catching up on some reading while away. No ice cream for me but I tried a bite of my mom’s monster cookie blizzard from DQ and it was pretty legit. Just trying to save macros for the end of vacation treats haha Have a fab week love!

      I’ll make sure that Top Down is my first read from the stack! I don’t think I would’ve been able to stop after 1 bite of that blizzard! Enjoy the rest of your vacation love!! Xo

    My weekend was a festival, brewing beer and lots of food (as always).

    Tbh, I’ve never received a gift on a date! Hmm .. my ginger brings home flowers every so often so I’ll use that as my ‘gift’. That said, having flowers in the house sets such a positive vibe for me 🙂 That sounds corny but it’s true haha
