Hi friends! Anyone else feel like the holidays literally turn them upside down and back around? Seriously, I keep forgetting today is Tuesday and I did NOT want to go to work today, especially with a -21 windchill. Thankfully I was able to finagle my way into two more days of work from home so I’m sitting on my couch in thermal pj pants and a huge blanket. Best way to come back to work, in my opinion!
Friday, December 29
Friday ended up being an incredibly relaxing day. I was supposed to get lunch with a friend, but she texted me that she was sick so all I had planned was a few phone calls with wedding planners. I ended up having three phone convos (really loved two of the girls!) but Ben and I are going to take a little breather on hiring vendors just yet and focus on the venue. Ben feels a bit rushed by me (oopsie) and wants to sit down and really hammer out our budget and what’s important to us. I think that’s a great idea, plus I do still have a few more wedding planner interviews over the next couple of weeks so at least I’ll have all the info!
Ben got home from work around 1 and I’m pretty sure the rest of the day was spent cuddling with Cora and watching Netflix. We really got into the show Mindhunter (which we finished this weekend!) and I highly recommend it!
Saturday, December 30
I woke up pretty early with Ben on Saturday because I was going to go work on wedding planning stuff plus my blog at a coffee shop while he was at work. I was planning to workout with him and since the temps have been so cold, there was NO way I was going to walk there so I figured I’d hang out at a coffee shop for two hours right by his gym. Unfortunately we woke up to a very goopy-eyed puppy and I had to take her out to the ‘burbs to check on her eye. 2 hours later + $155 appointment/meds/heartguard + $30 in gas, I got home. HA!
I had picked up Qdoba while out in the ‘burbs, so I ate that while waiting for Ben to come home. I started cooking a little bit and all of a sudden got SUPER nauseous and felt really sick so I ended up laying on the couch for the rest of the afternoon.
Ben’s friends came over later that night (thankfully I was feeling better at that point) and we hung out with them and their 4-month old baby for a few hours.
Sunday, December 31
The day started out pretty slow before I got into cooking a few things for the rest of the week. Ben’s cousin came over so they could talk “business” (they’re starting a donut shop!) while I cooked up some stuff. We ran off to Target quick to pick up a few things ..
We hung around the rest of the day until we headed out to Saige’s house (my friend) for a Murder Mystery party!
It was SO much fun, but she ended up making this yummy juicy drink that went down very easily and … well, like 6 glasses later, I was way more intoxicated than I had initially planned (since I had initially planned to only have one drink LOL).
Monday, January 1
Unfortunately most of Monday morning was nursing myself back to health. I have always gotten hungover quite easily, but especially when I rarely drink, I definitely can’t handle that much alcohol anymore! It ended up being okay, though, after I ordered myself my FAVORITE brunch item at Whisk to be delivered (AKA $40 since I had to meet a $20 minimum, so Ben got it too PLUS delivery, tip, tax, idiot…)
We spent the rest of the day watching Mindhunter and then starting Ozark. It was SO nice for the both of us to just have a fully chilled out day. It’s very rare and after traveling all over for Christmas, it was nice to completely turn off at just hang out watching some tv. We made a quick spaghetti dinner and then continued watching Ozark before getting ready for our week back at work.
How was your weekend? Do anything fun for NYE?
