Happy February and Happy Monday! I hope you all enjoyed as good of a weekend as I did. It was another no-actual-obligations-or-plans weekend and those are becoming my absolute favorite. Life post-football season CAN in fact be good. I love the time for Jared and I to just do whatever we want at whatever pace we want. Those couple of days away from the office are always my favorite no matter what we do :) Although it's always preferable that the weekends include donuts at some point.
The weather here in Ohio was ridiculously nice and we definitely took advantage of it while it lasted. It was in the high 50s on Saturday so we headed out to a part of town we don't typically visit. I had a few returns to do that I'd been putting off for weeeeeeks. Does anyone else hate returning things? I dread it just as much as I dread getting an oil change. So I took a deep breath and tackled the car stuff AND the returning stuff all in one day. I'm such a grown-up, I know.
After the errands, we explored the area we were in. Shopped in lots of stores we don't have near us and ate a nice dinner out at a steakhouse- yum! Plus, there was a bookstore next door that we couldn't resist visiting. Their bargain book section was incredibly tempting, but with the decluttering we've been doing lately I had to tell myself no to purchasing. Instead, I just took detailed notes for a future library trip.
Speaking of decluttering- we also donated two large boxes of stuff over the weekend and threw away two large trash bags of junk. It's both sad and amazing that we continue to find things to get rid of in our house but it's been a fun challenge to see what we can get rid of each week. I'll be reporting more on that tomorrow :)
And last- but certainly not least... Congratulations to the winner of the Valentine's Day planner pack- Lisa!! Thank you to everyone who entered and those who continue to support our Etsy shop.
