Tacos, Sunburns & a Whole Lot of Lovely.

by katelin on February 18, 2014

Weekends are always my favorite. ALWAYS. And this past weekend was no exception. I wish it was still the weekend because I’m really good at not working and enjoying weekendtime.

Friday: I took the day off of work and Matt and I took off for Palm Desert. On our way we stopped in Palm Springs to have tacos with Doni. Really, it was a perfect lining up of events that resulted in tacos, girly drinks and a delightful lunch time with Doni and Matt. And it was my favorite.
UntitledAfter tacos Matt and I finished our trek to Matt’s aunt’s house where I immediately took a nap. Because apparently I can’t function without naps lately.

Eventually Aunt Toni came home, Matt and I prepped dinner and all was delightful. We rounded out the night with wine and the Olympics (as one does on Valentine’s Day) and had a lovely time all around.

Saturday: Matt and Toni spent the morning/afternoon golfing and I spent it at the pool with a book. The best? THE BEST.


Seriously, it’s February and I got a sunburn. California is so weird and yet, so very very awesome.

After a day at the pool and more napping, there was relaxing and reading and cocktails. And then there was a delightfully delectable dinner at Tommy Bahamas (I’m still dreaming about my dessert, butterscotch pudding – YUM). The evening was spent with more catching up and more Olympics and just more of the relaxing that we needed.

Sunday: Woke up and went to Matt’s cousins’ house for a delicious breakfast where we got to catch up with family. I truly love Matt’s family and am so grateful to have married into such a fun and loving family. After breakfast we started our trek back home (with a stop for some macaroons first). The rest of the day was spent unpacking, napping (seriously, I am SO TIRED) and TV watching. Twas the bestest.

Monday: You guys. I need all Mondays to be holidays because I’m SO PRODUCTIVE. I got our watches fixed, got a car wash, framed a picture I’d had lying around, did laundry, painted my toenails, watched two movies, watched some Breaking Bad, read, made meatballs. did dishes and even did some work. So basically, I rocked. All day long. And it was awesome.

And I need more Mondays like this in my life. All of the time.


And how was your weekend? Enjoy the long weekend? Any special Valentine’s Day shenanigans?


happy tuesday!

  • There was a foot of snow around my car this morning when I went to work. This picture isn’t very nice! ;)

  • yes, can we please have more Mondays that are holidays? Although, I did have to work yesterday which was pretty much the lamest thing ever, but some times I get Monday holidays off =)

    We had Mexican and margaritas on Friday night with my dad; it was a lot of fun! I was shocked by how busy and full the Mexican restaurant was, too. Who knew that Mexican food is romantic ;)

    Hope you have a good week!

  • “Seriously, it’s February and I got a sunburn.” My brain doesn’t even know how to comprehend that!

    What a great weekend! I went to an ashram for a yoga retreat and it was wonderful. My friend and I really made it our own – we didn’t follow the schedule (except for classes and meals) and left feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated than we did coming down – success!

  • Ohhhh, that pool picture makes me so jealous so I’m hoping the weather will cooperate for a pool day for me this weekend!

    What is it about Mondays off the equals productivity? Maybe because we know we’re supposed to be working but we’re not so we take the time to get everything accomplished?! WHO KNOWS. (Though, I am very jealous because I had to work. Wah.)

  • Sounds like such a fun AND productive weekend!

    I worked all weekend long. However, I still managed to get some errands done, so that’s good. :)

  • San

    I said it before and I say it again: I want your weekends. So much fun! And the highlight: having lunch with Doni! What great timing!
