weekend highlights

four hours to myself, in where I did what I do best:
roamed a bookstore,
sipped tea
and read.

I concluded this leisure time with my second ever manicure.
I'm a fan of the soft pink on my nails, you?

This weekend also included wearing this frock that had been waiting to be worn,
with black leggings and my cute Jessica Simpson black pumps.
A full picture you ask?  Well I tried and I just couldn't bring myself to post one...

In my new frock, Husband and I enjoyed a seafood dinner and called it a night shortly after.
What can I say?  We've got toddlers and love our sleep.
But this is not to say that Husband didn't break it down in the parking lot to Usher,
 before our return home.
Because he did. 
And I may or may not have it on video.

Much of yesterday was spent outdoors--
a five mile run along the lake
and gardening at our soon-to-be new residence, while the children ran rampantly around the acres.
Lucky for me, the dirt washed away from my new, pale, pink nails.
I've also began the initial planning of our garden, and I am beyond excited.

I have so much to share with you!
Pictures of the new place soon!

How was your weekend?

Way to go on the run! I started running a few years ago and did two (very slow) half marathons. I let it go for about a year and for the past three weeks I've been starting up again... back at square one. I haven't found my love for running but I do love the accomplishment I feel after a workout.

I LOVE having time alone with tea in a bookstore!! I did that this weekend too!! :)

Sounds like fun! I am sure your hubby is a riot to see & hear.

I laugh so hard when Jared breaks it down to Vanilla Ice. He knows every word. lol

You look gorgeous, too. Love the nails. Love the outfit--wish you'd show more of it. And your hair is lovely--shiny and chocolate-y.

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
