Sequins and Sea Breezes: Weekending

Weekending

4/04/2016


Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fabulous and well rested weekend. I originally had a bunch of plans this weekend then at the last minute just said "nope, not happening" so it turned into a pretty relaxing weekend. I'm definitely not complaining about it, especially not after how busy my weekend was last weekend! I have a slow week at work this week compared to next week when I'll be at the Oracle Conference (any one else going? Anyone? Ok, wishful thinking there) so I'm going to take full advantage. But for now, jumping into our weekend recap with Biana

As you probably already know, I was at an offsite meeting all day Friday and we had to surrender our phones at the door so by the time 4 pm rolled around I was aching for my phone. Truthfully it had less to do with what I missed in my personal life and more to do with what I missed in work world. I really didn't want to have to go home and work so I was hoping I didn't miss much. After work I headed home, made dinner and just relaxed on the couch since I had two back to back long days. 


Saturday morning I woke up and had planned on going to the gym but the rainy weather convinced me to stay in and do some cleaning and cuddling with my sweet little pup. I also headed out to run some errands since it definitely wasn't a nice day to be outside!

Saturday night we had a nice relaxing game night at my place. Some bubbles, some snacks and some rousing rounds of CAH. Always good times, especially when you just want to chill and get some laughs. 


Sunday was one by far the nicest day of the weekend but a little chilly, especially in the morning, from all the rain the night before. After doing some Pinterest browsing I decided to make some homemade Poptarts and bacon for brunch before heading out to the pool for some much needed vitamin D. After getting some sun we headed down to a local bar for a drink to cool off before heading home, enjoying dinner and some laughs at Kevin Hart's stand up comedy.


Definitely the complete opposite of last weekend but much needed!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

  11. It's always fun to get out of the office, but coming back always seems to be so crazy! Sometimes you really just need a weekend to recuperate after doing so much on previous weekends, and it sounds like you had a great time doing that!

  19. Sounds like you definitely needed a relaxing weekend after such a busy week! And I totally know what you mean about missing your phone for work purposes - there's nothing worse than coming back to a slew of high priority emails when you just want to start your weekend!
