Weekend Shenanigans

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend, are well rested and ready for yet another week :) This weekend I really tried to practice "simplifying" my life and doing what matters most, which for me is spending quality time with those I love, making sure I set aside quite time with God daily and keeping my priorities in order.

Overtime, I have started to realize that I don't always have to be on-the-go. I used to hate not being busy or having my plans laid out for the whole day but have recently learned and have really enjoyed living in the moment, appreciating the quiet afternoons and going with the flow of things. And that's pretty much how my weekend was. To say I loved it would be an understatement!

Friday was a pretty low key night. Will and I got dinner with some friends at a restaurant in Uptown (which was pretty last minute...so you can see I am trying to get better at doing spontaneous things!) and then went back home for an early to bed type of night...however, we did fit in an episode or two of Game of Thrones because we are slightly addicted to it!

Saturday was another pretty low-key day. We woke up, got breakfast at Panera Break and then Will had to go into work for a few hours so I went back home, took a nap, did some laundry and had my quite time with God. Later on in the day, Will and I headed to Statesville to celebrate our friends Ally and Chandler at their wedding shower! It was so nice getting to see friends from college (Will got to catch up with some of the guys from the soccer team he played on at NC State) and I was very happy that Will and I were able to be a part of such an awesome night. And the wedding shower games that they played were hilarious and made the night so much fun.
Sunday morning, Will and I woke up bright and early and got a quick breakfast before Will had to leave for the airport and head to Houston for work. I decided that since he was gone, I should put my priorities in order and really use my time wisely, which can sometimes be hard to do when all you want to do is stay at home in your pajamas! I ran a few errands, went grocery shopping and even got to watch the Panthers game! Towards the end of the day, I did another load of laundry, cleaned around the condo and then did some blogging and watched the Golden Globes.
All in all, it was an ideal weekend and one that I am thankful that I got to have. Be sure to check back tomorrow for my round two post on The Liebster Award!
