I had a staycation over the weekend. Lenny was at his annual guys mountain trip in Moab, and I decided to stay put. I tossed around the idea of going somewhere for a long weekend, such as New York, Seattle or Portland, then decided after traveling the past three months to stay home. It was the first time I really declared a staycation, and I have to admit it felt a bit strange and was hard to let go of the guilt of being home to do nothing. While I had grand plans for the entire four days, I kind of let things just take it’s course while weaving some work in here and there. I lunched with some friends I haven’t seen in years. I picked a neighborhood that I never spent more than an hour in and decided to explore it. It was nice; I got up early, had breakfast and did some window shopping. Took in a movie, at home, total chick flick and enjoyed a somewhat rainy day. Read magazines and the book I am into now. And drank Rose! Not to mention, I had plenty of time for Crushing On. Have you taken a staycation before? Advise for the next time I decide to indulge?
I have a question as I am thinking of changing Crushing On to Coffee Talk. Yes? No? Let me know your thoughts ….
Have a great week!
Peonies – cannot get enough of them. Picked up a big bunch this week and now I want to fill the house with them. Why do they have to have such a short season. Anyone love them too?
These Icy Treats – planning on breaking out the ice cream maker come June and I want to make all of these.
This apartment – totally digging really white walls lately!
This photo series – one of my least which became a favorite assignment when I was studying photography was “shooting as if you were a bird”, this series reminds me to look down as well as up more often then just forward.
This lantern – thinking of filling with battery operated lights for inside the house. Maybe one for our tiny patio too.
These ribs – sucker for good ribs all summer long.
This cocktail – screams summer!
These chickens – every time I see them on Instagram, I want to add them to our life someday.
These breakfast sandwich – this would be great for summer time camping.
