life lately [off work edition]

I’ve never had time off work longer than 2-3 days just hanging out at home. Until now. This past week I was off before starting my new job, and I have loved it so much more than I thought I would! I thought I’d be wishing I was somewhere else or too bored or too anxious with to-do lists, but not the case. Of course the week went by too fast, but it was a perfect blend of relaxation, play and a little work.

Enjoy my week in pictures … 

[goodbye happy hour with some of my favorite WM coworkers at The Hive]

[arguably my favorite part of the week was coffee in bed + morning TV shows]

[yummy lunch + coffee dates with wonderful people]

[a day of serious junk room/closet/bathroom cleaning and organizing – UGH, it was the worst. thanks to mom for the help though … and of course, I feel SO much better now that it’s done.]

[spent one entire day of pure relaxation – finishing a book, bingeing TV (starting with the beloved HSM) + a massage]

[celebrated national margarita day with margs + games at the new dave and busters – this photo seriously cracks me up]

[friday in fayetteville for a hair appointment then maxine’s + hugo’s with the family – couldn’t have ended the week more perfectly!]
