Happy Monday!

...or not so happy Monday. Where did the weekend go? Nonetheless, I have to admit I am excited to get back to work and see all my babies. I miss them terribly over the weekends!

My weekend started off with one of my favorite things...



A MANICURE! Sure, I had to wait 15 minutes and got pushed down the waitlist when a regular client and, clearly, a favorite walked in, but I was so excited it was the weekend, I couldn't have cared less! Plus, my nails needed to be in tip-top shape for date night with the boy.


We had dinner at one of my personal faves, Macaroni Grill (the bread is to die for). Nothing like a little hangman (yes, my words were 'mashed potatoes') and drawing to add some excitement to the evening! I always love going out on date nights and having an excuse to get dressed up, because we all know I'm not getting all dolled up during the week to work with snot-nosed toddlers!

Saturday, after sleeping in until noon, (I haven't done that in forever, and it felt AMAZING!) I made myself some delicious chocolate chip pancakes with strawberries and A LOT of powdered sugar. I had to take a picture...


I got to spend some time with Justin and his parents Saturday evening, which is always a joy! They never fail to make me laugh and feel unbelievably blessed.

Sunday, I was able to spend time with my high school girlfriends. They always say that the friends you make in college are the friends you will have for life, but for me, its my high school girls. We have such an unbelievable bond that will never be broken. It's so amazing to be able to pick back up right where we left no matter how much time has passed between our visits.

We met at The Arb, an arboretum in Downtown Ann Arbor. It was a perfect day to lay down some blankets and enjoy the sun! It's about time we got some beautiful weather in Michigan!


Ugh...don't look at my huge forehead (a.k.a. my five head). My friend, Lee, brought her ADORABLE 9-week old Sheltie/Beagle mix, Fuller.


Umm is that not the most adorable nugget you have ever seen??? Spending time with this little baby gave me puppy fever!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend as well! Happy Monday and remember...

XOXO

Thank you :) I try not to go overboard on the manis since they're always overpriced!

That puppy is so adorable :) I'm glad that you had a good weekend!!
Also, LOVE the colour on your nails- I'm a little big over obsessed with nailpolish (heard of zoya?) so seeing nailpolish photos make me happy, haha :)

Same here! I have heard of Zoya. I've never tried it but I think I should!
