Oh, Monday...

Mondays get me every time! After sleeping in during the weekend, I literally dread my alarm clock on Monday mornings. (I might even hate it a little.) But enough complaining ...

My weekend flew by, but it was a ton of fun. My friends and I made appetizers on Friday night before going out (I'll post about my bruschetta recipe tomorrow), I spent Saturday with Michael, and Sunday was all about the Super Bowl. I didn't really care who won, but the game kept my attention and I thought the commercials were decent, so I was happy. My seven-layer dip was a hit, which also made me happy considering the amount of food we had. Pulled pork, baked beans, fried green beans, homemade mashed potatoes, potato skins — you name it, we had it. (I should probably eat a salad today.)

On a different note, I committed to the February photo challenge, and I'm really having fun with it! The challenge is hosted by fat mum slim, but the below idea for displaying my first few Feb. photos comes from {av} at {long distance loving}. If you haven't checked her blog out yet, I suggest you do — it's absolutely wonderful!

1. The view from my office window
2. A frame from Etsy that's hanging in my bathroom
3. Essie's Chinchilly nail color (I definitely couldn't have a career as a hand model.)
4. I know this is stretching it, but I didn't know this guy (Seriously, though, I was too chicken to take a picture of a real stranger.)
5. A little after 10 a.m. on Sunday morning

Happy Monday everyone! Here's to daydreaming that Saturday gets here super fast so I can sleep in again...


  1. Love the pictures! Especially the view from your office window, what a view to have during work : ) Just curious, how did you get the pics arranged like that all into one?

    1. Thanks Julie! I used Photoshop for my pics — it was a lot easier than I thought it would be! If you don't already have Photoshop you can download a free 30 day trial of it from Adobe!
