Top Row: DIY headband, kitty condo play time, shoe organizing fun friday
Middle Row: Norman and Catching Fire via osmosis, what I wore, Contessa sleeping on the counter
Bottom Row: Eno river state park, Contessa sleeping (again), Mellow Mushroom

Another weekend went by and back to the workweek... yeahhhh....  Can you sense sarcasm?

friday consisted of a lot of chores and errands
thieved my old shoe rack from my husbands side of the closet and did a reorg of my shoes
woke up early too many days in a row this weekend for no reason, 6am early
started Catching Fire, sequel to the Hunger Games, no spoilers please!
friday we ate the same leftovers for the third day in a row, over that
ran 5 miles on Saturday morning, humidity was a killer
dug up a dead tree and replaced it, front yard embarrassment averted!
watched Christmas Vacation on VH1 while the husband sweat to death mowing, ironic, maybe
one of my best friends and college roommate Jessica came Saturday to visit for the weekend!
a late afternoon and evening of severe weather due to a strong cold front, finally!
morning windows open with fresh clean air, sigh......
5 mile hike at the Eno River State Park
watched the husband and Jessica swing on a rope into the river, brown water, not for me
late, late afternoon lunch at the Mellow Mushroom, mmmmmmmmmmmm
steelers foosball game, zzzzzzzzzz
this morning I woke up late for work, intentional with a visitor
I wish I could get up at 6:30am every workday...  I guess if I'm wishing 7am sounds better...

  1. Hi Amanda! I just love your kitties so my fav pics are the ones with them!:) happy monday dear!:*

  2. Your shoe collection makes me feel a tad bit better about mine. ;o) Hope you have a fantastic Monday. (or...the best a Monday can be...)

  3. I'm jealous of your Mellow Mushroom! We just got one here but I haven't had a chance to try it yet!

  4. Your cat is too cute and looks like the one I'm taking care of while a friend is in LA! :)

  5. Thank you, thank you Amanda!!!

  6. Well, YAY! for friends coming to visit and morning windows open, right?! :-)

  7. LOL! I like that you stole hubby's shoe rack. They don't have any need for it so I would do the same:) I think having a leftover three da in a row is an instant dieting regimen;)
