Weekending | January 19-21

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm excited going in to this week because I have a short work week! I'm traveling to California on Thursday for a Junior League leadership conference and I can't wait. Warmer weather, meeting new friends, lots of learning and my hotel is across the street from the beach.

I wanted to use this weekend to prep for my trip and get a bunch of items crossed off of my to-do list, but that didn't happen. Friday night was spent working from home. I get overwhelmed at the thought of all of the e-mails, phone calls, and work that comes rolling in while I'm out of the office, so I wanted to start this week with a clean slate so I don't get too far behind while I'm traveling.

Saturday brought the absolute laziest day I've had in a very long time. I spent most of it on the couch with a weird sinus headache that made me feel like I had a massive hangover, despite the fact I hadn't had a drop of alcohol to drink on Friday. I had no motivation to do anything, so I scrolled Pinterest, napped, and threw a frozen pizza in the oven for dinner and called it a day.

Sunday was a busy day that involved lots of food! I met a friend for brunch to discuss some upcoming Junior League events. Our League will be celebrating its 90th Anniversary in 2019, so we are getting a head start on all of the planning. It was so lovely to chat about ideas over a savory waffle with eggs, cheese and sausage (no whole 30 here!).

Of course, no Sunday in January is complete without watching football and eating like a maniac. Jason and I spent the afternoon at my parents house, where we made macaroni and cheese, brisket, spinach and artichoke dip and washed it all down with cold beer.

But those games! They both broke my heart a little bit. Well, as much as a heart can break for two teams that I don't have much interest in at this point. I so wanted Jacksonville to win only because one of my favorite former Penn Staters Paul Posluszny plays for the Jaguars. And I despise the Eagles, mostly because so many of their fans are just nasty! 

Now it's time to get down to work, plan out my to-do list for the week, and start at least one load of laundry so I'm not rushing to pack at 11:00pm on Wednesday night. Here's to an easy Monday, right?
