Monday Blues Don’t Live Around Here

I refuse to accept Mondays as bad orΒ  not kind. Its a fresh start and a new week people!
Yesterday I tried to take pictures of moments to prove it!

This is what “fall” looks like around here πŸ˜›

I so enjoy my daily walks!

Yesterday my friend Sarah gave me this AWESOME succulent bowl made from an old vinyl record!

Way cool right!!!
Dinner was a simple but satisfying stir fry.

Succulents, Hikes, & Good Eats

What a wonderful, full, creative, & active weekend!
Friday night Andrew and I went to one of our favorites, Olive Garden, & shared the yummy Tour of Italy. Sharing is good for the wallet and the waistline πŸ˜›

This is HALF and I wasn’t able to finish it all!
I then skipped off to my first solo flight to Home Depot! I’ve had some creative ideas in mind but not the time or finances to put into them.

My goods!

The end result! Thinking I will get another one but for the week this looks awesome and saves space!
Saturday morning I went hiking with some girls I met on meetup.com. We hiked the Lemon Grove trail on Modonna Mountian. Two of the ladies were familiar faces  (My sweet friend Paige from Healthy Hits the Spot and fun Nina and her dog Macy) & 3 new faces! LOVE meeting new people.

We made it to the top πŸ™‚

Saturday night we had a yummy BBQ at Andrew’s Mum’s. (Its an English thing; -))

image

Potato salad, pork and ranch style beans and iced tea (anotherone of my obsessions)
Sunday morning brought protein shakes and more hiking for me!

After grocery shopping and another Home Depot trip it was time for a hearty lunch of chicken tamales from Trader Joe’s and some quite reading time.

I ended my day re-potting plants and settingup my little succulent area on my back patio

In LOVE with this peice of furniture my friend Traci gave me! Andrew is not a fan, but my plants love it and I love it so that’s all that matters πŸ˜›

Hope you had a fun filled weekend with lots of family time and good grub. Today, Monday, is a regular work day for me with a fun coffee date planned with a friend this afternoon!
What did your weekend look like?
