Weekend Recap!


My weekend seemed kind of short - mostly because I only had Friday off of work. But I got caught up on sleep, and enjoyed some of the great warmer weather!
1- I got my new fruit infuser water bottle from Etsy! I love it so far, but haven't really had time to look up a bunch of new recipes. So that is on my to do list soon! Plus, the water bottle is customizable, and has my monogram on it!
2- Starbucks makes everything better :) You need to try the new Cinnamon Dolce Frappachino - so great, and it can be made hot or cold!
3- My hubs brought home these flowers just because, and they remind me of Easter. Spring can't get here soon enough!
4- 54! 54 people! You have no idea how excited that's how warm it got on Friday! Ollie got his first real walk in months, and now we can both hopefully start to shed some of those holiday pounds still hanging on :)
I spent Friday night cuddled up with wine, my pup, and watching Rehab Addict. I just love that show - she makes me want to buy an old home and renovate it! And I used my Key West wine glass, and day dreamed of summer :)
And as I was web surfing, I cam across this watch. I am in love with it, but the price tag just does not meet my budget. So I guess I will have to dream about this too for now. But how pretty is it?!
And you know what was awesome about working this weekend? That on Saturday night, I actually had to work one less hour than normal :) I know it's not a lot, but it makes a difference when you work a 12 hour shift, and your puppy is at home alone too. I always try to avoid working "fall back", because then you end up working an extra hour. But this day is awesome. I definitely picked the right weekend to work.
Tune in tomorrow to read my review on 2 dry shampoos! Happy Monday!

  1. That's great that you got to work an hour less because of the time change! I saw an eCard that someone posted that said, "Why didn't they make the time change happen on a Friday at 5 pm?" lol! :)

  2. we got some warm weather here in toronto as well - it was a great 2 degrees! trust me, that is considered warm up in here considering we've had average temps of like, -15 for the past 5 months! so all my fellow canucks were in a great mood on friday because of that :)

  3. SO thankful for warmer temperatures! Fruit infused water is my favorite. I need to check Etsy for a bottle! A good combo is lemon, cucumber and mint.

    1. Haha, I didn't used to like coffee but kind of grew into it. But it definitely has to have a lot of flavoring in it!

  19. That Kate Spade watch? I got my aunt the white version (I think it is less expensive) but I had a coupon. Also she is going through breast cancer so I felt justified in spending the money :) But all that to say. She loves it. And it's comfortable. www.wearflowersinyourhair.com

  22. First of all, yes Starbucks does make everything better. Also, I am pretty sure you are like the only one who got something awesome from daylight savings time (we lost an hour of sleep, you lost an hour of work… you win). I do like it being light later though.

We have a few Starbucks here but I personally enjoy the locals....however if I were elsewhere, starbucks is where I would go!
