Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I’m currently writing this while looking out a big picture window in the woods with little bits of snow lightly falling. It’s been a nice weekend away for our little family.
I worked from home until 1 on Friday before Ben and I left for Michigan. We got here, played with Cora a bit outside and then went over to the Salty Dog for dinner.
Ben and I split a salad and nachos, which were both SUPER good. Once we got back, we spent a little time reading before watching the British Baking Show. Unfortunately I don’t sleep very well in new places sometimes, so I barely slept (and barely slept on Thursday night because Ben was sick) so it called for an exhausted Saturday.
Once we were up, we ended up having chili for breakfast because we didn’t have any cooking oil to make our eggs and hashbrowns we brought with (whoops.) Ben and I got a little work done before talking about my brand and how I’d like to make some changes.
Around lunch time, we joined Ben’s friend (he owns this house and stays in another house on the property every weekend) for brunch at the Swedish Bakery. I had chilaquiles which were pretty good, but the stunner was a gluten free brownie we took home with us. OMG IT WAS SO GOOD.
After lunch, we read and chatted about the 30 Day Brigthen program that I’ll be starting in about a week and a half after I get my Mirena taken out. After that we went with a long walk with Cora through the woods and she was POOPED afterwards (okay, so was I.)
We were pretty hungry and we didn’t bring as much food as we thought (whoops) so we headed to another quick restaurant nearby for dinner. It wasn’t very good and we both wish we wouldn’t have had to eat there. We stopped at a quick convenience store (there’s literally NO grocery stores in the area) to pick up some coconut oil so we could make breakfast on Sunday morning. We spent the rest of the night reading, playing Scrabble (I lost terribly) and then watched another episode of the British Baking Show before heading off to bed.
On Sunday morning it was snowing a little bit when we woke up. Ben made breakfast and we started some work for the day. He did some yoga while I started this blog and did some other work.
We played with Cora outside, made lunch, read for awhile and then packed up and left around 2 pm. I was so sad to go back to the city that I was in a weird funk the rest of the night! Ben and I looked at some apartments and then got ready for the week.
How was your weekend? Where do you go on fun little getaways that don’t break the bank?
