weekend recap 03.22-03.24

March 25, 2013

Happy Monday friends! Wow. I did not expect to take an entire week off last week. I kid you not, I seriously had written out ideas for 4 posts the week before that I wanted to do last week. But then last week came around and I got on the computer in the evening, signed into WordPress, stared at the blank screen and I just wasn’t in to it. It felt so forced and unnatural. I had nothing I wanted to say. This repeated a couple times and by Wednesday I said to myself (and probably to B) “I’m just not blogging this week” and then you know what happened?

Absolutely nothing.

Life went on as normal. And now I’m back ready to go and actually excited to be sitting here typing out this silly story to you all.

This past weekend wasn’t too particularly exciting. But I can give a few explanations to the instagrammed highlights above:

  • Look forward to this week’s Petit Elefant DIY post! Its basically all kinds of adorable.
  • B, Lucy and I enjoyed a nice walk Saturday evening when it actually felt seasonably warm. (we currently have a forecast for a ridiculous amount of snow tonight and early this week…umm hello, Spring? We’re ready for your arrival now)
  • Lucy got a haircut. I also got haircut, chopped off 8 inches, but have yet to really take a picture of it. My phone doesn’t have a front camera, so I have to hold my hand in a super awkward position to press the button and have it in a somewhat flattering direction toward my face (i.e. not pointing up my nose) and most of the time it just doesn’t work. On the other hand, Lucy is pretty easy to photograph, so all haircut photos default to her.
  • I made some tasty soup for dinner.  A version of my chicken soup I posted about here, but I added in some red potatoes since I had them on hand.

That’s about it! How were your weekends? Has the warm weather finally arrived for you? or are you still braving the snow and gloomy forecasts?

Enjoy your Monday!

    Some weeks the inspiration just doesn’t hit! No worries! We have no set post schedule and are totally ok with that. We just blog for fun…. it definitely takes the pressure off!

    Sometimes, the best think for writers block or any creative block it to just do nothing. Lucy is very photogenic. 🙂

      I agree! Sometimes you just have to step away for a bit and things seem to look a little clearer once you return. Thanks, Marie 🙂
