Monday Tuesday, friends! I hope you had a marvelous weekend (and long weekend if you were so lucky!) and also took some time to reflect as well on the reason for the long weekend.
I’ve racked my brain trying to remember what happened on Friday and I really cannot remember even a little bit. We probably had dinner out and relaxed? Ugh I just don’t know! I kinda remember J working late and me relaxing watching a lot of Young and Hungry on ABC Family. Though that also may have been Saturday. Hmm…. I swear. My long term memory is fantastic. My short term? Not so much!
Saturday was a lot of cleaning, relaxing and then dinner on the porch al fresco with a homemade dinner by J. I seriously won the boyfriend lottery. This man can cook!
After dinner, we headed out to meet J’s sister and her fiance for a few drinks. SO fun! I love them so much.
I tried my first Moscow Mule, and unfortunately I was so not a fan! I’d been wanting to try one for ages, so I’m glad I finally did, but I guess I’ll stick with my old tried and true adult beverages from now on! 😉
Sunday we ran a few errands, watched the old Poltergeist #scaryascrap and then got ready for the beginning of our wedding season!

We had the best time, got our groove on, ate some delicious food and cake and celebrated the love of a gorgeous, gorgeous couple! J’s best friend and his
fiance wife have welcomed me with open arms and I couldn’t be more thankful for that. It was such a fun wedding!
We wear our sunglasses at night 😉 Loved these favors from the wedding!
Monday we slept in (yay!) and then hit up both our parents’ houses for cookouts. I love a holiday and the time to be with our famsquads. We’re so lucky that we both have great families!
Rosie sure loves her J! She was all snuggled up asleep with him after dinner and it was the cutest thing ever. Plus, he’s pretty darn cute himself!
I posted this on Facebook after
a bit of another wake up call:
After a long weekend, and too long of indulging (which I talked about here), I’m finally back on the healthy eating wagon. I plan to follow the 80/20 rule – indulging at weddings and special occasions – but eating healthy most of the time. I’ve got two bridesmaid dresses I’d like to feel more confident in this Summer, and also the rest of my life to feel more confident in my own skin as well! Though I know it will be hard, I’m looking forward to the change.
Perfect thing to see on my calendar today as I’m switching to Tuesday! Thank God for small signs that we can do this J and I made sure to get groceries last night and plan out our meals for the week and I got up early and packed my lunch today. I’m ready!
Tell me: How was your weekend? I want to hear all about in the comments! Do you have a favorite quote that gets you through hard times and challenges? I’d love to hear about it!
