Marriage Mondays #1: Lazy Weekend

Happy Monday!

I can say that with real excitement because I’m well rested from my three-day weekend! I took Friday off for the sake of my sanity and well-being. You know that feeling you get when everyone and everything at your job frustrates you to your core?! For me, when I can no longer get a good night’s sleep, and my days leave me exhausted for no particular reason, and even the smallest tasks become overwhelming…it’s time to take a break! I am so in tuned with my body, and I knew these were signs that I needed some time off!

This is the first week of my marriage series, Marriage Monday. This is where I will share events from our most recent date nights, tips, and marriage inspiration. This weekend was pretty uneventful, as we wanted to have a weekend of rest. March was very eventful for us, as we had plans every single weekend last month! Though it was all exciting, it was also tiring to have every weekend booked solid! So, to give ourselves the rest we needed, we decided to stay home and take advantage of our Netflix subscription. Netflix’s own original show, Daredevil premiered on Friday, so we spent the entire weekend watching it. It was much better than I anticipated, as I’m not a fan of comic book stories, movies, and such like hubs. We still have to watch the last episode, so please don’t share any spoilers, if you’ve already seen it. :)

We did get out for lunch on Saturday. It was a beautiful day in Atlanta, and we were in the mood for pizza. I thought it would be fun to try Uncle Maddios Pizza, since I heard it was a ‘make-your-own’ pizza joint. I was a bit skeptical…assuming it would not hold a torch to our usual Pizza joints. I’m sure glad I was wrong, because my husband and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the pizza was very tasty! We ate on the patio, because the sun was shining, and I honestly needed the vitamin D! LOL We continued our binge-watching session for the remainder of the weekend, and it was awesome!

How often do you take a break? Do you listen when your body tells you to take a time out?

Easter Sunday + A Birthday Party

Happy Monday!

Don’t you wish there was a “Good Monday” holiday? I feel like I needed today off after a very active Easter weekend. My weekend was complete with a 6th birthday party for a special little boy, my nephew. My husband and I traveled to see him, and he was so happy that we came. I was filled with pride as he played, showed me his school awards, and laughed loudly all day long. I love his smile!

After a long day of traveling and celebrating my nephew’s birthday, we finally made it home with enough time to rest before Easter Sunday. I felt great Sunday morning! I love celebrating the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday, but this year; I was even more ecstatic to be amongst my church family. I must say, for two people who had no idea what they were wearing the night before…we sure cleaned up nice? Wouldn't you say?

After church, we went out to eat at the Marietta Fish Market. Let me just insert my greedy girl statement here. “You have not eaten fried catfish, until you've eaten at the Marietta Fish Market!” I may or may not have eaten myself into a gluttonous stupor. In my defense, I eat clean during the work week.

So, how was your Easter Weekend? Did you over-eat?
