{weekend recap} the kind of weekends only grown-ups appreciate

another weekend has come and gone. 

i do like to be busy, but i honestly love the weekend where there's technically nothing on your schedule. nowhere to go, nowhere to be, you can just go where your heart takes you.
this was a great weekend - relaxing and extremely productive. it's the kind of weekend where you find yourself realizing that only 'grown-ups' truly appreciate weekends like this one. well apparently i'm a grown up because i was lovin it {loved marquis's post here about other ways you know you're a grown-up!} 

here are the highlights:
>> parks and i grabbed a bite to eat and enjoyed some fro-yo while running a quick errand at the mall. {More like I just had a Target craving so we grabbed a few 'necessities'.} got home, laid blankets and pillows on the living room floor to wind down with some Blue Bloods. << one way to combat becoming a grown-up: pretend like you're a kid again.

>> saturday morning i snagged the primo spot at the barnes & noble starbucks where i accomplished 3 things:
finally bought the young house love book!
did not purchase anything from their new vera bradley section
perfect and productive 'me' time
i won't bore you with the boring details of our saturday afternoon ... saturday night saw the movie 42 and it was phenomenal {review coming soon}.

>> i didn't leave our place on sunday. 
one reason, i was a cleaning machine. had some great coffee time in the morning to write some notes in my new blog 'journal' and read. then we went to town on our apartment. i like to call it remodeling, but you can't really remodel a one-bedroom apartment so it's more a combination of spring cleaning, organizing {my happy place :)}, and re-arranging. oh, and removing christmas/winter decor you can see below. you can also see a sneak peek of our desk area in our living room - making the most of a small space. in the near future there will be more where that came from.
second reason, it snowed and was blizzarding conditions here and no, i do not want to talk about it.

apparently this weekend i was instagrammin' like a fool so we'll let those take over from here.
for your viewing pleasure...

hope you had a great weekend! 
i also hope you're wearing spring sandals and ankle pants so i can live vicariously through you :)

you should follow me here so you don't have to wait until mondays to see my riveting weekend instagrams.


  1. I love that Barnes and Noble has Vera Bradley...another reason why it makes it hard for me to go to that bookstore ;)
    I thought I was the only one who didn't take down Christmas cards so late! We took ours down 2 weeks before Lent how you hung yours, reminds me of Pinterest.

  2. This really is the kind of weekend we prefer! Sounds SO perfect!

  3. Seriously, target cravings like Every. Single. Day. I can't stay away! And I love when I have absolutely nothing on my schedule too, it's the best! I love having the freedom to do whatever I want :) Sounds like you guys had a great weekend!

    xoxo Jamie
