Learnings This Weekend

Okay, okay I'm back! 

Things have been a little busy in my world with work, meetings, playing and well.... summer.

The highlight of last week was taking the work day off on Monday and getting some awesome girl time with Marisa, a sweet girl I met through blogging who was my first "blind blate". We had coffee, got pedicures and talked about the serious importance of "mental health days". From there I only blogged last week for confessions and focused my energy toward work things.

I can't promise perfection but I can say I'll be better.

Here's some of the fun things I learned this weekend (which is really just a fun way of saying recap, right?)

:: Weekends are way better when I'm cat sitting this handsome guy





:: I can't eat my raspberries as quickly as they are coming in! I need a partner in crime!



:: The start of Orange is the New Black Season 2 is lackluster..... but you already knew that.
:: Sunday date with mom is awesome, but chocolate made it much better!

:: Bears are the best zoo animals, especially when one comes home with you.


:: But really, cat sitting is the best. Come back any time, Shady!



Are you linking up with Katie today?

Ah, I love fresh fruit. I used to have blackberries. I'd end up picking far more than I could eat though. It's worth the challenge.
I'm frustrated waiting for the next season of Orange is the New Black already. I'm a self-confessed binge-watcher.

Marisa @ Uproot from Oregon said...

I love being your first "blind blate"! That was the best mental health day and I want one every week!! xo

Kasey Lynne said...

I wish I could be your partner in crime to eat those raspberries! They're my favorite.

Good for you for taking a mental health day. That's the Monday after this coming up holiday weekend and I can't wait.
