Thoughts From a Weekend

Things are so busy lately.  So busy and our internet at the house has been faulty so excuse my lack of blogging.  I've missed y'all.  Have y'all been busy bees, too?
Check out Lisa's film prints from Labor Day weekend in Seattle-Tacoma! 
Last time I mentioned how excited I was about the new Mumford and Sons album, and let me tell you, it is incredible.  (Don't worry, Lisa, I have a copy ready for you).  Their music just touches my soul every time I listen to it (which is a lot).  It's funny how I wasn't in the right mindset to appreciate them two years ago, but cannot get enough of them lately.  Their lyrics are beautiful.  If you get the chance listen to Babel, Whispers in the Dark, Lover of the Light, and Below My Feet.

This weekend involved lots of R&R, including a much needed visit to the local spa.  The girls and I took a day dedicated to the spa and it was perfect.  Turns out that the lovely woman who gave me my facial is also our neighbor.  Only in a small town...

Thank God for pay day, because we are no longer in the Great Teacher Depression.  We stocked up on groceries for two weeks on Friday evening.  Somehow on Fridays we, the teachers, get a little looney (proof below).  We say things we wouldn't normally say, do things we wouldn't normally do, and I think it is due to the fact that we lose a few brain cells throughout the week.

Try this guilt-free tuna salad recipe, I made it in bulk for my roommates and I so you may want less mayo for one can of tuna:

  • Greek Yogurt (eyeball it)
  • Mayo (1 Tablespoon)
  • An apple cut into small pieces
  • 1 can of tuna
  • Grapes cut in halves
  • Craisins
  • Celery
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • Salt and pepper

Looney in the Kroger aisle

Two weeks worth of groceries

Glowing after my crushed pearl facial

Loving tea time before bed these days.  
One last thing, I will leave y'all with a b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. song by City & Colour called "The Girl" Sweet, sweet, sweet, utterly beautiful song.  Isn't it?


  1. NOOOOOWW you tell me you have a CD ready for me - after I done go and buy it :P

    Spa day?! What a good idea!

  2. How was the crushed pearl facial? It sounds so fancy! I still need to try that blue peal masque you tweeted about! My skin is changing because of the weather so I'm game to try different things.


    1. It was incredible! And yes. Definitely try the blue mask. My skin is getting drier with this weather so hydration is key.
