Mondays are AWESOME!
If not, perhaps many of you will be happy to know that this time next week, your Monday will be a holiday. For those who don't have that, my condolences and I will have to work as well here and there so I'll commiserate with you.
This weekend was all work and a minuscule amount of play...for work. So yeah, the most we were able to muster was lunch. We looked at the menu ahead of time and ordered our food with our drinks because chop chop puddin' pop...I got crap to do!
We headed off to World Market to pick up a few supplies and I fell in love a little.
I thought my friend who lives close to the beach now would love these but she probably already has plates. This isn't even the right color, there's more of a green hue in there but this looks robin egg blue for some reason. Still pretty though. Fun fact: Did you know eating off of a blue plate is supposed to reduce your appetite? I can say that any time I try to photograph something on a blue plate, I don't find it half as tempting so there may be something to that. On the flip side, red plates are supposed to stimulate appetite. There's your useless piece of knowledge for the day. :-)
I also thought these were adorable!

My aunt taught me that a tupperware pitcher full should have like 1 1/2 cups of sugar. CUPS! How I've never had cavities is beyond me. But yeah...in case someone *cough* Mr. *cough* should need a stocking stuffer idea for Christmas, this would be a good one!!
After putting in a
The next morning, I had quite a load of dishes to do. To reward the Mr for all of the stuff he's put up with and help he's giving me, I made him his favorite dish for brunch...
He loves the Huevos Rancheros. He said he'd drive to Chicago to get a meal that good. (Eggsperience) Luckily we can save money and gas and I'll make it right here!
Lots more work and clean up was how we spent Sunday before heading down to do strength. Unfortunately that will be my only form of exercise this week. I'll go into that tomorrow.
What did y'all get into this weekend?
