Weekend Update

Well it's been a hot minute since I've done one of these weekend update posts, mostly because "I worked all weekend" just isn't great blog material. Luckily for you blog readers I didn't just spend my weekend working, I only spent half of it working. I traded off days last week and ended up with a 3 day weekend (!!!) this week meaning I was off yesterday, making it the first Sunday I had off since starting this job in December. I went to church with my family in the morning and then we went for Mexican, just like we did almost every Sunday while I was growing up. I spent the rest of the day napping and reading magazines. It was perfect and relaxing and exactly what I needed.

Other things of note from this weekend

  • Did you watch Mad Men last night? I was a little underwhelmed by it. They make us wait months and months, all the way until the middle of April and that's all they gave us? I was expecting so much more, like oh I dunno maybe an appearance by Sally 
  • This weekend my town played host to our annual "Black Beach Week." This is a weekend each spring planned during the spring breaks of historically black colleges where students come and spend their spring breaks on our beaches. It is one of the worst weekends to live here because the beach is packed with traffic. I seriously do not know how people in real spring break destinations do it for months at a time. My usual 12 minute drive home from work took 45 on Saturday. 
  • Did you see my Instagram on Friday with my new statement necklace? It's from Urban Peach Boutique and I absolutely love it! They have really insanely good prices on statement jewelry plus they usually have some type of discount code. I ordered my necklace Monday night and it was in my mailbox Thursday afternoon. 

Well that's all I've got for you today. I'm hoping to have a productive day spent doing laundry, scheduling some posts, and maybe getting an oil change if I'm feeling really ambitious. 

PS: I'm linking up here and you should too


  1. I love when mail comes fast! That's legit the best thing ever!
    Thanks for linking up, doll!

  2. The necklace you got is so cute. I checked out the Urban Peach Boutique site (never heard of them before reading your post) and they really do have some great prices!


I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
