Welcome Back, Weekend.

Crazy work week + hosting our Company's Regional Meeting = a well-deserved three day weekend. I am looking forward to seeing my family and friends while remembering our Nation's heroes.

Leaving you with some fun finds from around the web for your entertainment:

  1. I already shared Julie's workouts that are perfect for those of us with an office job. Meg shared another idea to beat the system--a stand-up desk. I would love this! Have any of you tried this alternative?
  2. I don't know about you, but I love to have music on in the background while I work. Lifehacker shared their take on the best sounds for getting work done. Which route would you take?
  3. My cousin and I planted a tomato plant & basil plant this week. Her thumb is green; mine is black. I'll stick to the decorating--love this idea for a DIY painted planter.
  4. My recipes pins this week included this caramelized onion quesadilla and this white bean, kale and tomato quesadilla. Think my subconscious is craving Mexican??
  5. Stumbled on an article that is on point with my thoughts behind this blog. Don't wait for perfection--just launch & learn. Great advice to grow from your mistakes and learn in doing.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I can't sign off without taking a minute to wish my beautiful momma a happy birthday!! I am so happy to be able to celebrate with you & yo' young self. I love you time a million. :)



Do you have any big plans for Memorial Day weekend? I'd love to hear!
