Welcome!Hey there! I'm Holly. A 40+ year old Wife to Garrett, Mom to Holden and a million other things in between.

Looking For Something?
Daily Archives: July 9, 2012
If I could prescribe the perfect weekend, it would look roughly like this last one. I am so refreshed this morning I might actually be bouncing off the walls!
A Blissful Weekend As Prescribed:
Read an Entire Book In One Sitting
Granted I did that this weekend because our book club meets tonight and this was the selection. 🙂 But that said, it’s been a long time since I tore through a 400 page book in 2 days. It felt good. (Reading Mojo, is that you?)
A to Z the Aisles at Target. Come Home With Fun Plates (Among Other Things)
Garrett and I went to Target and Friday night and he was in a remarkably patient shopping mood. He is NOT a shopper, so for him to actually want to stop in the clothing section and try on clothes was sort of shocking. I pressed my luck by attempting to talk him into trying on some white pants and a pair of seersucker shorts. He wasn’t THAT into shopping. But we did find some fun stuff!
Make Paleo Lemon Bars
I used this recipe and it was remarkably easy and tasty! I’ve really had a hair up my ass to bake lately which is REALLY unlike me. I’m more of a cook, baking never really appeals to me. While the treats have been fun and delicious, it’s somewhat inconveniently timed as it’s been in the high 90s-100s in the last couple of weeks.
Watch the Entire Sex and the City Movie and Make No Apologies
Even thought that movie is years old, I still loved looking at all their fun clothes and listening to the silly cliched characters. When it is too hot for a blanket, sometimes you just need to wrap yourself up in a little guilty pleasure! And it’s even better if you do it while eating lemon bars!
Putter Around In The Garden
Or, more accurately, sigh with relief that things are actually growing. My gardening luck this year is average, at best. I keep meaning to post about the garden but I don’t know how exciting it will be. We do have an enormous 6 foot tall sunflower (that Garrett is simultaneously in love with and confused by) (Hey wait…kind of like ME! ha!)
…but other than that, there is nothing too crazy yet. This year I planted watermelon and canteloupe too and had absolutely NO IDEA what to do with them. But look…THEY’RE ALIIIIIIIIIVE! Now…who can tell me when I should “harvest” them? What should I look for?
Start Another Book Just Because You Can
And I did. And so far it is AWESOME!
It was a SUUUUUUUUUUPER relaxing weekend, you all, and I couldn’t be happier about it!
Did you have a good one? What does your perfect weekend look like?
