Makin’ My Way Back

I took a day off of work. Like completely off. As in turned off my push notifications for my work email. I only had one text that was work related that I needed to respond to.

And it was glorious.

I spent the entire weekend doing some serious relaxing and destressing and pampering. Including a mani/pedi, a new Yellowcake Shop dress (adore!), time with friends and some patio cocktails (my favorite). I decided I really need to do this more often. Knowing my schedule for work for the next couple of months, I also knew that I had to take a day off now so I could recharge a little bit. And good thing I did – cause it’s full speed ahead.

Monday Funday View

I even spent some time with KTOinCLE and Julie sitting poolside, next to Lake Erie doing some serious girl chatting and laying out (it also included Katie reading some of 50 Shades of Grey to me – racy!) It was glorious. I love that these two ladies live right down the street from me (within walking distance even). It’s going to make for a very fun summer.

The Supplies: Beer, Wine, Umbrellas and Sunscreen. All needed for a Monday Funday.

Coming back to work today was a little difficult but I managed through…with the help of Skinnygirl Margarita this evening, as well as a very hilarious and needed conversation with The BFF. He’s been missing in this blog but tonight he provided a much needed conversation, with tons of laughter, some really funny stories and the kind of love that only he could provide me. I hope everyone has someone like The BFF in their life (cause seriously, I was on the verge of tears tonight and he slowly worked me off the ledge with some stories of speedskating, marriage, funny weddings and the speech he wants to give when he’s my Man of Honor).

The quote from tonight’s conversation:
Charlene – “I want a puppy, a husband and a baby.”
The BFF – “Eh…you really only want one of those things, promise.”
Charlene – “The husband?”
The BFF- “No! The puppy, you moron!”
Adore him.

How did you spend your Memorial Day weekend? Was anyone else struggling when they returned to work like I was?

  1. Sooooo hard to go back to reality – the weekend was way too fun! Add in birthday week and Vegas next week and you can imagine how unmotivated I am to work. I think I will drink a Skinnygirl margarita in your honor tonight since I just happen to have a bottle in the fridge. :o)

  2. I have to say I love YellowCake clothes! I’d love to see a picture of what you bought. My husband and I took a trip to Niagara falls, we left Sunday morning and came back Monday night. We both had gone as kids but didn’t really remember it. It was amazing and beautiful!
