Hello! Hello! Hello! It’s Monday again and I’m sure most of you were thinking something like this when you woke up: “Monday. Here we go again. Let’s get this over with.” But did you also notice that is was brighter when you rolled out of bed this morning? I certainly did. For the last few weeks I had been leaving my house in the dark. It was such a good feeling to wake up a few minutes before my alarm to a bright bedroom. I was pretty thankful for that light this morning, not just for myself, but there’s still thousands of homes in Connecticut that don’t have their power restored after last weekend’s storm! A few days without power after Hurricane Irene made me a little batty. I don’t know how these people are doing it. And if you’re one of those people without power, call us! Come over!
I always love the extra hour we get when we turn the clocks back. We didn’t have much on our agenda yesterday so we filled the extra time with a little lounging on the couch, an HBO documentary on the financial crisis and I got a head start on my Thanksgiving placecards. I’m not much of a DIY-er. I’m more of a HSETDIFY (hire someone else to do it for you)! But I’m getting there. Here's a sneak peek:
I followed this tutorial from Mint Love Social Club.
If she didn't live on the West Coast, I would have invited her over to help!
On Saturday night, Keith and I had the extraordinary experience of watching our first roller derby match. Wow, guys. It was awesome. Crazy contact sports always put me in awe. I’m totally not tough at all, so it’s really awesome to live vicariously through those players who are beating the crap out of each other. My friend just joined a roller derby league and Saturday was her first bout. After, she told us she was a little nervous going into it but you never would have thought that. She zipped around the track hip-checking other girls and even taking a few nasty spills. I was very impressed. I don’t think I would be able to stand on skates without the obstacle of a large pack of angry and competitive women!
To top off our amazing night, we discovered that there was a Shake Shack in Fairfield, CT! We had burgers, delicious milk shakes and fries and then we crashed on our couch to watch my favorite, Charlie Day, on Saturday Night Live.
It's ok to move to Connecticut. All the things you love will eventually follow!
It was a great weekend and now I’m ready to tackle the work week. Who’s with me?
How was your weekend?
