If you’re reading this on Monday, I’m officially on SPRING BREAK! Woop! We aren’t going anywhere this year for spring break, and that’s a-okay by me. I’m really looking forward to lying low, getting the house clean and in order, getting a few projects done, and just enjoying having no schedule to follow or obligations to take care of.
Backing up to this weekend…it was a pretty great one! On Saturday, John and I took care of a project in our backyard that we’ve been talking about for a few weeks now. We first went to Lowes to stock up on all the supplies we’d need. Then we got busy!
I worked too! John just forgot to take pictures of me.
We wanted to build a raised bed on the back of our patio. We are BEYOND happy with how it turned out! It really wasn’t difficult to do at all, and only took us a few hours, start to finish.
Please excuse the junk on the window sill
Sunday, we headed to early church and Sunday school, as usual. Following church, we had plans for grabbing lunch on our way to one of the cutest neighborhoods! This neighborhood is located about 20 minutes from where we currently live. And although we have no plans of buying a home there and moving in the near future, I’d love to live there one day! The whole community is adorable, and the houses are to die for!
We had so much fun walking around and dreaming about the “what ifs…” and “One days…” After we had our fill of adorable-ness, we ran in a few of the stores that are nearby. Ann Taylor Loft (one of my all time favorites!) was having a good sale, as was New York and Company. While I did see some spring pieces that I liked, I didn’t fall in love enough to buy anything. But, I have a feeling I’ll be making some spring wardrobe purchases soon!
The rest of Sunday evening was spent trying fix my computer. Sadly, it’s not charging…AGAIN! This happened about 2 weeks ago. My mom kindly offered to take it in for me – she works part-time at the Apple store (there are only 2 in Alabama- one being in Birmingham, about an hour and 15 mins. from where John and I live). I got it back this past Wednesday, and Saturday evening, it stopped charging again. Sad day!
My mom’s going to take it in for me again. But, I don’t know when I’ll be getting it back. She is coming down to visit for the day on Wednesday, so I’m afraid it may be a while by the time she takes it in, they diagnose and fix the problem, and I can meet her again to get my computer back.
Fortunately though, I have a computer that is “mine” at school. It’s a Dell laptop that I can basically use as mine; I’m just responsible and liable for it. So, I was back up at school bright and early this morning (yes, on spring break!) to grab my laptop. I am very thankful, though, l that I have another computer at my disposal to use.
This Monday morning began marvelously! I slept in (7:20!), had breakfast, did a sweaty and challenging Nike Fitness Club workout (you should check this app out if you haven’t already! It’s free from the Apple App Store), cleaned the kitchen, master bedroom, and bathrooms…all before lunch! I don’t know about you, but if the house is a wreck, I just can’t enjoy doing leisurely activities. I love a clean house!
I’m not sure exactly what the afternoon holds, but I do know it MUST include a trip to the grocery store, seeing we’re out of just about all the essentials. Yikes!
And with that, friends, I’m off to enjoy the rest of this Marvelous Monday!
