i have a weekend!

Shirt: Target, Necklace:Burlington Coat Factory, Shorts: f21, Shoes:Madden Girl

[I really need to learn how to edit pics/use my cam]

The best part about my job is that they give me and Ian the same days off.
This week he had yesterday and today off.
So I do too.
He used to only have Tuesdays off and since he is a pastor and works on weekends too, we've never had two days off in a row.
Things are changing and his new day off will be Wednesdays and instead of my schedule being M, W, F, it will now be M, T, F which means that I will have two days off in a row
every week.

I just feel so giddy about this.

Here's how I plan to work it out:
Wednesdays: play/projects
Thursdays: rest

Since I've had a job, I've realized that I have a hard time resting on my off days.
Every day I'm working all I think about is what is going on at home (especially now that we own a fixer-upper). 
Whenever I have free time I find myself running to Home Goods, Ikea, thrift stores. 
Or peeling wallpaper.

Needless to say (I'm pretty sure about half that was needless), I'm happy to finally have a "weekend". 


  1. Yay! That's super exciting. And love those shorts.

  2. Love your bold necklace over a white tee...super chic! Woo Hoo for having 2 days off in a row and your own little weekend!

  3. weekends are the BEST, especially when you can spend them with the one you love! don't forget to take some down time with your sweetie :)

  4. You never really cherish two days off in a row until you haven't had it. I spent nearly a year managing a retail store so I would rarely have two days off in a row. It super sucked.

  5. haha welcome to my life :) it's SO HARD to relax when you have a house that needs a COMPLETE makeover :) even more hard when you have a serious case of wanderlust and travel any chance you get... welcome to the club girl!!

  6. I love the weekend! Good for you, I hope you enjoy them!

  7. I'm so glad you're posting again! I LOVE that necklace you have on. So happy for you that you have a "weekend" to enjoy now!

  8. Yay for off-days, play, and projects! :D

    Love those cute shorts!
