The weekend that was basically a week....

Look whose back!!!

Did you miss me?

I felt  a little lost without my blog this week but really wanted to just turn off a lot of computer distractions while I was on vacation the past week.

Did we do anything?

Nope... hard to leave to go anywhere when you have a blind dog that needs to be watched & led nearly every minute of the day...

& I basically ended up working most of my vacation editing the wedding pictures.

So much for vacation, huh?

But I did manage to just enjoy time off with the hubs.

We got to go out & enjoy some dinners.
We went to the movies.
I found a Beauty & the Beast dress marked down 80%!!!!!
I got some crafty things done.

I totally binged on Stranger Things 2. (2 episodes to go!!!!)
I got some knitting done.
I had some offers come my way that was unexpected.
I had a photo session.
I finished editing the wedding in under 2 weeks - YES!!!!
We even celebrated 22 years of marriage while we were off.

All in all - it was a great week off.

But heck, any time off work is basically a great week, amiright?

I cant even begin to sum it I'll just leave it at that....

& now I guess its time to get back at it.  Real life.
With I'm sure a desk piled high of work... & early morning alarms... & schedules & routines.


This may very well be the worst Monday ever.


  1. I'm still trying to figure out if i should pull the trigger and start watching Stranger it scary? i'm hearing mixed messages re: if it's scary or not.

  2. Mondays after a lot of time off are the worst! Welcome back though! :) I binged/rewatched the first season of Stranger Things to get ready for season 2 ... but I'm afraid I won't be content with watching one or two episodes a night. Already been hearing some spoilers, but it just makes me more excited about seeing how they pan out.

  3. Glad you're back, Friend! And yes! You were missed! Happy 22!

  4. Welcome back! Time off is always good but the first day back is always hell. Hope it goes by quick and painless.

  5. Welcome back and I know you're all rested and ready to tackle the week! Happy 22 you cuties!

  6. I definitely missed you! I"m glad you got some photography and editing done and some craft projects Becca! Those days and weeks off are SOO essential. <3

  7. Welcome back! Even if you were home-bound it sounds like the week was very relaxing and productive. Those are the best kinds of weeks off in my opinion :) Yay for 22 years! And lots and prayers and love sent your way for Bruno-baby!

  8. Welcome back! Taking a break is a beautiful thing. It sounds like you had a nice relaxing week. Happy anniversary again!! Beautifully Candid

  9. I love vacations, especially ones with no set plans that can be nice and relaxing! Happy anniversary :)

  10. I certainly missed you! I was going to text to see if things were okay and then I remembered your were happily on vacation! We need to see this Beauty and the Beast dress!

  11. Time off is always good! Hope you all had a good week! And we have two more episodes to go as well on Stranger Things. I swear that series is seriously the BEST.

  12. It sounds like my kind of week off. Plenty of stuff to do but at your own pace with lots of downtime for fun stuff too! I've been curious about Stranger Things. It looks really good but I tend read scarier books more than watch them (because I can quit BEFORE I get too scared and that's harder to do in movies!). I hope your Monday treats you kindly!

  13. Oh no, well I hope that your Monday isn't TOO bad. ;) I'm glad that you had a nice break! I think any time off work is amazing. I'm all about staycation days. Even one day to do laundry, pick up, and do some cooking lol. :) Happy anniversary again! I loved those photos on IG from your wedding day! Too cute! XO - Alexandra

  14. Yay for vacations, even if you were at home, nice for the break. I took blogging off Monday and Tuesday and it was nice, but felt weird at the same time. Welcome back to the real world.

  15. Mondays after vacation are always so hard :( But sounds like you had a great time off! That beauty and the beast dress sounds like quite a deal, I can't wait to see it. Hope Stranger Things is good! I haven't started Season 2 yet but I'm excited for it.

  16. Hoping your Monday hasn't been too bad. I still remember and do understand that feeling Monday brings when you have had time off. Sigh. Sounds like you got lots of things done and that's a good thing.

  17. Oh, that first day back to reality stinks so bad!! I'm glad you got lots of downtime and time with the hubby. There are times, I think, when homecations or staycations are better for us than going away.

  18. Ah, sometimes taking a week off of everything--including the blog!--is just such a wonderful thing. If you're anything like me, you probably feel even more motivated to blog now than before! And kudos to you for such a fast turnaround time on a wedding; I can't even imagine! You are seriously SO fast at getting stuff back to your clients. I bet they adore you for it :)

  19. So glad you had a great week of vacation. Hope you have a good week back at work.

  20. Happy Anniversary!! It sounds like you had a good week off! Hopefully this week at work will go by quickly for you.

  21. I'm glad you had some time off of work! Other than two weeks off after my surgery (not exactly a vacation), I haven't taken any time off or gone anywhere since we moved at the end of February. I keep thinking I'll just take one day off - just one day without the alarm clock... We do have a short trip planned to the beach after Thanksgiving.
