When the Cat’s Away…

the mice will play. 

Last weekend I had the house to myself for the first time ever. Matt flew to Chicago on Friday for a guy’s weekend with some of his best friends. Since I am the one who travels for work, Matt is used to having the house to himself for a few days. However, this time it was me who got the house. Just Charlie and I, all weekend…

1. I started off the weekend right with a pedicure, magazine and Starbucks. 2. I got 2 inches trimmed off my locks. It’s amazing how much lighter my hair feels! 3. Lots of shopping. I hit Nordstrom rack and found a pair of boots I’ve been wanting for 75% off! HECK YES! I also stocked up on some workout shirts on sale ($10 each) from Old Navy, and grabbed some small items for the house at World Market. 4. Charlie and I went for several long walks since it was so beautiful all weekend. 5. CRAFTING! Duh. 6. Mmmm – Ben & Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns ice cream.  It has real pieces of cinnamon bun swirled in. Oh my goodness, it is heavenly. 7. Extra long baths every day included wine and reading. 8. The neighbors came by with fresh eggs from their chickens. 9. I hung Boston Ferns from the porch!

I could get use to a Christina weekend (every once in awhile)!

There is truly nothing better than a little "me time"....and every girl needs it. I just wish my hubby traveled more...I could use a good weekend every now and again. Ha! I loved your schedule - fun and perfect. Glad you enjoyed. :)

I too love "Me Time". I love not having anyone to answer to and can eat anything I want.

How Fun! "Me" time is always great:) I also am the one who travels for work so I look forward to having the house to myself once in a while. Of course, we miss our hubbys but it's good for everyone;)
