Long Weekend

Just off a three day weekend that was mostly pretty good. On Friday I was off a little bit early so I could get my hair done. I’m super excited with how it turned out this time. We went pretty bold and went for kind of a pinker red. It’s super fun. I know it’ll fade pretty quickly, but I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.


It was insanely nice out on Friday afternoon/evening, so I got Ollie outside to get some fresh air while we waited for Nate to get home. He was so excited to play with his car and his tricycle again. Nate made his famous jerk chicken for dinner and we watched a movie after Ollie went to bed.


Saturday we got up and Nate set about his toilet project – super exciting stuff right? While he worked on that my mom and I took Ollie shopping, got him some new shoes, I sold some stuff at Style Encore and turned around and spent my earnings on some fun new things. Then we took Ollie to Once Upon a Child and got him a few new things there as well. Thankfully the toilet project went pretty well and had no snags. You know you’re an adult when you get excited about a new toilet!

Saturday night we had a belated Valentine’s dinner out while Ollie hung out with his grandparents. We went to a cute little place we’ve always loved called The Sample Room and enjoyed a nice “grown up” meal. Sadly somewhere a long the way my cold went into my throat and I lost my voice, so that was not so great.

Sunday we had a little pancake party with Nate’s sister in the morning and then in the afternoon I met up with Jen to do a little thrifting and we ended up having a donut date at Glam Doll Donuts. I had one called the Cosmopolitan and it was delicious – peanut butter and chocolate, yum!


The rest of Sunday we pretty much laid low thanks to my non-existent voice. And that is pretty much how I spent my day off on Monday as well. I brought Ollie over to my parents because my dad was off and wanted to spend some time with him. I was going to go to a Blogger Breakfast with Twin Cities Collective, but seeing as I couldn’t talk at all figured that wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense! Thankfully towards evening my voice started coming back and now it’s mostly back today. I’m tired of germs and colds though, I know that much!

And now we’re off and running into the week! I hope you all had a great weekend whether it was long like mine or not!

  1. I hope you’re feeling better now and have your voice back! My mouth is watering over that donut–I think I need to have a donut date soon! We got some fresh air time over the weekend too and it was WONDERFUL! This weekend it’s going to be back to cold… sigh.
