Weekend Recap 7/21

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and really hope that the heat wherever you're at wasn't too bad. As you all know the Southwest can be unbearable this time of year, but friends, we manage some way or another. All I have to say is thank you Air Conditioner! My weekend was full of laziness, sleep and sunsets.

Because I'm a lover of Sunsets
- It's no secret that I'm a big fan of sunsets better yet, I'm in love with sunsets! This weekend I was able to capture the beauty of an amazing sunset. I wish I would've taken a better shot but the sunset happened so fast that all I was able to do is grab the camera and run to the street to capture this. These four photos are all from the same sunset and it was just amazing how each time I took a picture it looked different. Can you tell how crazy i'm about sunsets!

- I'll be honest, this weekend I didn't do anything aside from capturing the sunset in the middle of the street still wearing my pajamas :). On Saturday I posted this picture of Riley where he looked super comfy and lazy and that my friends is how we looked all of Saturday. We didn't even make the bed, it's not like I make it every day anyway, but sometimes I like to say I do!

- It was one of those weekends, you know when you just want to sleep in super late and not give a care in the world, it was one of those weekends. I woke up early on Saturday, ate breakfast, and some how I managed to go back to bed and fall asleep again, I didn't wake up until around noon you guys!!!

One more week  
- I have one more week off to sleep late and wake up late ;) but I really don't want to do that. If you read yesterday's Sunday's Letters, I wrote to my sleep. I said, "Dear Sleep I'm having such a hard time getting my body on a schedule. I know I need you, badly, but I promise I will give you that space that we both need." I made a promise and I like to keep promises!

1 Wish:
I wish it was easier to meal plan. I have to start making my lunch and I have the hardest time coming up with meals that are easy, fast, tasty, and that fit in a lunch bag. If you guys have any tips, I would appreciate the help!

Random Fact:
- I'm a little bit of an introvert and extrovert it depends on the situation.
- One pet peeve is when the toilet paper not replaced.

Have a great Monday & Thanks for stopping by!

Mingle 240  


  1. What I always did for lunches was to take leftovers from dinner. It meant I had to make extra food at dinner time but it saved me prep time and the same old sandwich blues.

    I love lazy weekends, and I wouldn't be able to survive here in the South with no A.C.!

  3. That is such a great idea! I'm definitely trying to stay away from those good ol' sandwiches so making extra food will be so helpful, Will be doing that for sure!

  4. Yes, sometimes one just needs one of those lazy days, it felt sooo good! I'm totally with on the AC, it's a must! Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Sometimes the best weekends are the one where you stay in your pjs the whole time!

    Thanks for linking up for MMG :)

  6. Yes I agree with you! These lazy days are such a treat and much need sometimes!! Thanks for stopping by & for hosting MMG ;)

    Salads in a jar is one of my favorite Pinterest discoveries, so many options and you can prep them all on Sunday :)

  8. Stoppin' by from the link up! That picture of your dog is so adorable! I've been having the same dilemma with meal prepping. I love looking to Pinterest for different types of salad ideas and I'll usually grill up enough chicken for the week to go along with them on Sunday. :)

  9. Beautiful sunsets! I'd have trouble getting out of bed with a snuggly sleepy pup like yours!

  10. Wow!! Those are pretty photos. I so wish I had a week to sleep in. Following from the Mingle Monday. http://secondchances-ash.blogspot.com/

  11. Pinterest is awesome, I have also seen those salads in a jar. I will definitely give it a try! Thanks for the tip :)

  12. Hi Julia, thanks for stopping by! Sometimes I wish I lived Riley's life, he always looks so comfy :) Grilling chicken is a fun way to change things up, I know I'll enjoy my salads a little more. Thank you so much for the tip!

  13. Thank you Katelyn! I try taking snap shots of sunsets every time I have a chance, they're just so breathtaking. Yes, it's so hard to get up when all I see is Riley laying so comfortably without a care in the world, sometimes I wish I lived his life :) Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Thank you Ashley! I wish I could sleep in every day too, so I take advantage every chance I get! Thanks for stopping by :)

  15. Well those are some awesome sunsets! Yes, hooray for AC! And weekends are for being lazy :)

    Thanks for linking up with MMG!
