Making Me Happy Monday

Ok, I have a confession to make. Something that's kind of hard to admit, something I don't think I've every really told anyone. Here goes - I don't really like weekends. Yes, I know, it's CrAzY! Maybe it's because I'm a stay-at-home mom and I get to spend a lot of time at home because I don't remember feeling this way when I went out to a job. Back then I was like everyone else and loved my weekends of freedom. But these days, I just find myself floating around on the weekend, not knowing what to do with myself. I do much better with the structured regularity of weekdays. I like a routine. But I really tried to enjoy and embrace the non-routine this past weekend. To just relax! And you know what, it was a nice weekend. So here is my weekend in pictures:

this little guy doesn't have any trouble with "doing nothing"

my husband made breakfast

coffee and a book

dinner out

a little crafting - a "Go Green" gift pack made for my mother-in-law - includes 2 reusable grocery bags, 12 cloth napkins, and reusable water bottles

a little thrifting - vintage pillowcases to be made into a baby quilt for my soon to be new niece

And finally, this is my friend, Amy - a mom, yoga instructor, entrepreneur, and all around amazing woman. You can check out her blog and read her take on weekends here - what's funny is we both wrote "weekend" posts without knowing the other was doing it!


  1. That "Go green" gift pack is an amazing idea!!! And the grocery bags (and everything else, too) are so pretty!


  2. I agree, the "Go Green kit" is a wonderful gift idea. I love anything that gives me an excuse to give handmade items.

  3. I love the idea of the go green gift bag. Great way of encouraging those around you to do just that.
    And the vintage pillow cases are fab!

  4. lovin the pic of cousteou on the coach...the eggs look pretty good too

  5. What a lucky little girl I will have - with such a crafty/creative/talented Aunt!
