what a weekend

i really don't feel like mondays are that bad.
i mean, everyone just picks on mondays: they say things like "back to the grind", "weekends need to be 3 days long", "sooooo tired right now". wah, wah, wah.have i said these things before? obviously. it's not like i'm all "whoo-hoo, monday! i love you! i missed you!" but is it the worst day of the week? no.

here's the thing, mondays aren't that bad. i'm busy at work with it being the first day back for the week so usually the day flies by. i'm normally pretty energized on monday - i don't mind getting back into a routine. the bachelor was on [till last week when sean left lindsay, my fave, in the dust]. dwts is on mondays. etc. etc. etc. i would almost have to argue that i think tuesdays or wednesdays are worse than mondays.

tuesday = 2nd day back, losing the adrenaline rush, but still somewhat busy.
wednesday = hump day ;) but i feel like the day itself is my lowest point of the week. all caught up on work. still 2 days to go. ugh.
thursday = it's the new friday.
and friday is just da bomb diggity.

the way i see it, mondays are not so bad. plus, on mondays you can reminisce about how great the weekend was. here are my top 3 of my weekend shenanigans, in chronological order:

1 // working the home and garden show on saturday morning.
our booth. didn't our guys do a great job building this? i was so proud.
ok, the working on a saturday morning part wasn't my favorite but it wasn't so bad. the best part? there was a tastefully simple booth at the show! delicious dips, soups, sauces, and salsas that are either ready to eat or super easy to make. i bought a 'bacon bacon' seasoning and made a 'bacon bacon dip' just by mixing the seasoning with some sour cream and mayo. serve with pretzels. yum:

2 // lazy saturday night with the hubs. sounds lame for a st. patty's day weekend but for 2 people who have been battling colds since the middle of february it was nice and relaxing. we did make-your-own sandwiches and caught up on our tivo recordings. it was a much needed, perfect night-in.
{no pictures, we don't exactly look like sweatpant models when we stay in on a saturday night.}

3 // time with a girlfriend on st. patty's day afternoon.
we had lunch at an irish pub: sandwiches and big ass beers {that's actually what they're called}.
then we got a coffee and went to the kohl's that just opened at the beginning of the month. we had a blast burying ourselves in the new summer accessories section. {the big ass beers could have played a role in the amount of fun we had ;) just kidding. sort of.} we both left with a new hat and pair of sunglasses. now if only we hadn't just gotten a snowstorm, i would feel as though spring / summer were just around the corner.

what did you do to celebrate st. patrick's day? do you hate mondays or think they're not so bad?

happy monday, kiddos!
