Weekend Vibes

I’ve become a morning person, and daylight savings finally seems to be working to my advantage. 

This morning I slept until 7am (6am with daylight savings) and I went out for coffee and did my weekly grocery shopping and was home by 8am. 

I checked out the friends and family sale at the  gap, and picked up these cute pajama bottoms: 


We took Hunter to the dog park, did some cleaning, lit a fire, and cooked dinner. We roasted a turkey, which I will post about tomorrow. 

We also ordered a plated trial for this week, which I’m excited to try. We got hello fresh a few weeks ago and liked it,  but I haven’t been too inspired by the weekly recipes since. So far plated is seeming a bit more interesting/delicious so we’ll see how it goes. 

Right now I’m fining sitting down on the couch and watching a little TV.  I just opened my laptop and contemplating doing some work to get ahead on the week. I feel the most relaxed I’ve felt in weeks, so I can’t complain.

I’m sad to see another good weekend go. It’s been these quieter weekends that I’m enjoying most. Laying low near the house, spending time with Ryan and Hunter. I have a busy week ahead – the election (šŸ˜¬), an overnight work conference/retreat, and my birthday! 

Weekend Adventure

I love a mini fall getaway, even if it’s just for the day. We woke up early on Saturday morning, and I told my husband that fall was going to be over before we knew it and that I needed to get my fall fix in before it was too late. We brainstormed a few ideas (apple picking, pumpkin carving, watching scary Halloween movies), and decided on taking a drive to Cold Spring, NY to see the fall foliage and explore the cute town.

The drive didn’t disappoint.

Sunday VibesĀ 

Today was an active lazy Sunday. Slept until 8am, which for me, is late. Stumptown coffee from my new favorite coffee shop in Ridgefield, Ross Bread Shoppe & Coffee House followed by a visit to the dog park (second time this weekend for the lucky pup). Greasy diner food to cut my post Halloween party hangover. Couch cuddles and SNL. Grocery shopping at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.


Sudden downpour, thunder and lightning. Running from the store to our car to stay dry. Failing!!! Back home for more cuddles with the pup, who is absolutely terrified of thunderstorms.


Cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. Bathroom floors, kitchen counters, vacuum, mail sorting. Nothing better than a clean house on Sunday to start the week off right. Cooked our homemade sauce and meatballs.


Started a fire in the fireplace. Lit some candles. Feeling cozy and getting ready to eat dinner.
