Weekend as Rx

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?

    ISWF is so good. And there are recipes!

    My perfect weekend consists of the house to myself for one day so I can sit around and be lazy/intermittently clean. Maybe I would get up earlyish and do yard work.

    I’m boring.

      I don’t think you’re boring..did you read my perfect weekend? I basically sat on the couch. And it was AWESOME LOL. It doesn’t take much to excite me…just control of my time to do what I want, when I want! :)

    Wow, that is a long, intense book! I can’t imagine reading it in one sitting.

    Sounds like a fab weekend! We were in PDX/flying home/getting a flat-tire on the way out of the airport, so I’m doing a weekend re-do like this one THIS-coming weekend.

    As for watermelons, I read recently in Better Homes and Gardens that you should look for a watermelon that has a yellow spot on the bottom, that way you know it was given enough time to ripen. They were obv talking about picking one out in-store, but that tidbit might help…Maybe?

    I know It Starts With Food is the “it” book in the Paleo community right now. But before I go buy another book that was really just everything I could have gotten off the blog, did you get something out out this book that you didn’t already know or had read?

      I don’t really know because I haven’t finished it or compared the book to the website. I really enjoy their voice and the stuff they are doing so I mostly spent the $14 to support Dallas & Melissa and to have a resource in my hand rather than on the web. Plus we are doing a Whole 30 in August and sometimes when I want to know things I want a hard copy. Personal preference. Sounds like maybe you’d rather just read the website? I’m sure either would be helpful. You gotta do what works for you, but I may blog about it more when I’m finished depending on if I find it particularly enlightening.

    […] wanted to keep one day per weekend to myself and I did not do a great job at that. The beginning of the month started strong but in the end we traveled, and overscheduled, and basically got a little […]

  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
