Sometimes I feel as though each Friday kicks off an inevitable contest to have the "best weekend ever" after the workweek, and this weekend I think we won! Of course that's easier at the lake, but I feel like the makings of a perfect day are pretty much universal.
Consider this post the official Light Sleeper, Heavy Dreamer guide to the perfect (lazy!) spring weekend.
Step one: wake up in the morning of your own accord - no alarm clocks! Eat asiago cheese bagels & fruit for breakfast with a big mug of Dunkin' Donuts coffee while watching the weekend news and reading blogs. Shower & get ready for a day out on the boat at a snail's pace. This may or may not include a quick trip to Target to buy a new hat (but it probably should.) Pack your hat and your favorite sunglasses and a tote bag, and head down to the dock once you feel like eating lunch.
Step two: make your handsome husband pose for some cutesy photos on the dock while the boat lift lowers into the water. Make good use of your new hat in said photos.
Step three: order a mocktail with your lunch, because Pina Coladas are yummy, rum or no rum.
Step four: sit in the sun watching the boats and chatting about nothing much at all until you realize that it's time for more food! Head home to watch a movie, and eat dinner & some ice cream, of course. Go to bed at 10, exhausted & happy from being in the sun for so many hours.
Step five: rinse and repeat the next day (this time for brunch, because of course it's Sunday) potentially in a cuter outfit.
hat - target, dress - loft
Other exciting (okay, to me) things that happened this weekend:
I finally ordered a few samples of Le Labo perfumes I've been dying to try, because I'm almost out of Coco Mademoiselle. Darrell just has a naturally stuck-up nose - he won't even notice it, let alone compliment it, unless it's....well, let's just say not cheap. On the upside, more reason to buy fancy perfume! I'll keep you updated on whether or not I decide their scents are worth the splurge. The packaging alone....I mean the bottles are basically decoration.
My Sonnet James dresses finally came! I'm not going to lie, I was skeptical of whether or not they'd fit. I ordered them all back in February when I was um, much smaller, but the dresses were supposed to work for pregnancy and after. Well, they were all perfect! When does that ever happen? They're stretchy of course, and the fabric is pretty fantastic. They're super fitted now, which is actually more flattering during pregnancy, and I think they'll be perfectly relaxed and casual later. The packaging was adorable, each dress came in a bag with suckers and a little kids toy. Also, I got a promo code I thought I'd share with my order: they have a few extra dresses in stock that you can check out here, and get $10 off with sjfriend10!
I managed to snag my first pair of Karen Walker sunglasses on eBay last week after stalking them for quite a while, and they showed up too. These are the "Helter Skelter" style. I suppose time will tell whether or not I'm cool enough for Karen Walker sunglasses (debatable.) Sometimes I think I'd rather buy something online just because of how fun it is to get packages, which is probably incredibly silly, but tell me you don't sort of feel the same!
