Welcome to Monday! I'm trying very hard to be happy for a new week instead of just wishing it was still the weekend. I did have Friday off but it doesn't seem to matter much how many days I've had off when Monday rolls around. But I had a very relaxing weekend (almost too relaxing since I didn't get much cleaning done around the house, but let's not talk about that).
On Friday we slept in and had a lazy morning at home, then we had lunch at Mojo's and went to Books A Million to drink coffee and read magazines. We also shopped around for a new grill, much needed since our old one is literally falling apart.
And stopped by Trader Joe's where I bought my first jar of this deliciousness:
This is both very very not good and very very good at the same time.
Saturday I spent the morning relaxing and reading. We set Saturday aside as our first "Day Trip" day of the year. I had originally thought we would do something more all day and outdoors, but the weather was rainy and windy most of the day. So we decided to just chill at home for the morning and then go down to the World Golf Village in St. Augustine and see The Hobbit at the IMAX there (I KNOW, we are way behind on seeing it, we never go to the movies so it was a stretch to go but I really wanted to see it in theaters!) Before the movie we ate at Caddyshack and shopped at the outlet mall, where I scored some good deals at BBW on Wallflowers and got a free body spray! It's the little things.
The movie was in 3D so we got to wear these stylish things:
Saturday night we spent at home, and after watching The Hobbit earlier that day we felt like we needed to start watching The Lord of the Rings Trilogy again, so we watched The Fellowship of the Ring and I decided I needed to make chocolate chip cookies. I discovered I didn't have any brown sugar, but I was determined. And I didn't want to go to the store, so I made my own. When you really want cookies, you find a way.
I got a little blog work done, finally got some of my posts pinned on my Pinterest. Trying to be more proactive about social media for the blog!
Sunday Adam went out to the RC field and I was just REALLY lazy so there's not much to say about that. We did have dinner with friends and found a good deal on a grill, so we went ahead and got that. I finished the evening by watching two hours of Downton Abbey (watched last week's episode since I missed it) and the new show, Grantchester. It's interesting, still trying to decide what I think of it.
What did you do this weekend?
