{the weekend ahead}

Oh the glorious three-day weekends. Memorial Day weekend in particular holds a special place in my heart, since three years ago this weekend I married my high school sweetheart. Last year we celebrated with a weekend getaway to Kansas City; this year we’re celebrating by enjoying a weekend in our new HOME. Even though I am always full of wanderlust and several months ago had grand plans of  going to Washington D.C. for Memorial Day weekend, I’m oh so content just staying home with my love.

My  T O – D O  L I S T for the weekend: 

Set up our ping-pong table for our impending summer tournaments.

Make these drool-inducing Lime-A-Rita Pops.

Hang photos – in our bedroom, entryway, living room, etc.

Finish my latest read, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore.

Familiarize ourselves with the neighborhood on a long walk with pup.

Catch up on Game of Thrones.

Find our mailbox. (Seriously, this is a legitimate task)

Sleep in, X3.

Go on a stock-up trip to Walmart to fill our new refrigerator and pantry.

Take a bath in our oversized tub catching up on my magazines.

Visit one of our favorite breweries for an afternoon of sipping and relaxing.
