A perfect weekend

Ah, three day weekends. So glorious, yet the return to the “real world” is always tough.

We had a fantastic weekend, full of productive things, relaxing things, and general goodness. There were trips to the beach, and plants bought, and baby things discussed, and friends we hung out with, and coveted items purchased. Oh, and plenty of good food was eaten as well.

I think what I love about weekends like this one is that feeling that it was productive but not a whirlwind, busy but not insane, relaxing but not lazy. We accomplished many things this weekend, but we also enjoyed ourselves. Somehow it seems harder to do both with only two weekend days!

A few random tidbits from the weekend:

  • I officially don’t care that I look and move like a beached whale when I’m at the beach. I do, however, wish I could lay on my stomach.
  • Apparently, I married a gardener, something I’m not sure I would have ever expected when we first got together so many years ago. It was so cute to see his face light up like a kid in a candy store when we went to the local gardening center.
  • I am a person who covets THINGS. I want things, so many things, and so many things that cost money. I’ve never been a spender when it comes to clothes and shoes and the like, but sadly the things I covet tend to cost more than those items anyway.
  • My list of “foods I’m going to enjoy thoroughly once this baby arrives” haunts me. In general, most things are fine in moderation, but there are some just flat out no-nos, and of course, those are the things I want.
  • The new Terminator movie is really, really silly. And that’s a nice word to use.
  • It’s a shame when a restaurant with good food is marred by bad service. Or weird servers who are bad at their jobs.
  • I really love weekends!

A co-worker of mine said she LOVED going to the beach when she was pregnant because she got to lay on her stomach. She said the first thing she did was dig a belly hole in the sand, laid down on her stomach, and promptly fell asleep.

Oh, wow I didn’t even think of that–I’m so going to have to do that next time! Ah, the idea of laying on my stomach…

That’s great that you married a gardener. That’s a great skill and it’s good to know someone who enjoys it.

I’m with you on coveting things! Like you I’m not that interested in clothes but right now the things I want are so much more expensive. Hope you get some of these expensive things!
