How much does work suck after a 3 day weekend??!!

Recommended Posts

Jeez! Can I just say - I loved my 3 day weekend! It's the first time in months that I have not done anything work related for one entire day, much less 3. I left my laptop in the trunk of my car until yesterday afternoon.

 

Today is filled with people feeling a lot like me, and people that aren't here because they were smart & made a 3 day weekend into a 5 dayer. So pretty much I am relaxed and completely disenchanted with the prospect of work right now.

 

So, wanna see what I'm thinking about instead? I purchased this rug on overstock.com yesterday:

I'm going to put it in our living room to add a layer of texture.

Rug goes under the coffee table/couch. I purchased some beautiful large tropical plants for the house yesterday, so that will add some interest as well.

 

So now I am searching for lighting. I'm thinking of a chandelier or pendant to replace the lame ceiling light over the coffee table. I've found some fun stuff at lampusa.com

Gosh- I wish I could be lazy. Over the weekend, I ended up getting assigned to fill in for another chick while doing my own job until we find a replacement. Woohoo- I love coming in on a Monday to that news!

 

As for the LR- cute rug. I like the wall colors and the mantel. It will look fabulous!

Excellent! I like your style Maura. I did not take a 2 hour lunch, only because I plan to leave here around 4:00 to go to my yoga class...so short lunch = no guilt for Christa!

Legal day! Holy crap! That is a great reason to slack at work wink.gif

Ugh, you are my hero. I am definitely taking more days next year. And thanks...I'm excited by the rug. The paint color looks a little weird in the pic...but I am confident the rug is going to marry nicely. I still don't have pictures on the walls...I reminded myself that I do not have any business trying to hang things on my own (you have to find a stud? use a level? what?) I will def post pics as it comes along.

So whatcha doing?? Are you having a icey beverage? with alcohol in it??

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
