The Best Boring Weekend Ever

November 9, 2009



We did not do anything special this weekend, but I was telling Ben Blair that it felt like the best weekend ever. And then I figured out it was because my energy was up — from like 15% to 60% — which feels amazing. We did laundry! We did the grocery shopping! We put away Halloween! We went to Target! We went on a date! We were on time to church!

Isn’t that a wonderful thing? To feel better after feeling crummy for so long? I hope your weekend was equally lovely.

PS — Did you see this cute picture that Liz took of my pregnant sister, Jordan? It reminded me that I need to think of a way to document this pregnancy. I’ve never taken preggie photos before, but I want some this time around. Because I’m pretty sure it’s my last.

PPS — Don’t miss Stephmodo’s adorable new family photos (including the one pictured above).

PPPS — In the next post, I have to show you the wonderful thing we bought at Target.

PPPPS — Did you guys love Ask-Design-Mom-Week as much as I did? So many great questions! (Some of Friday’s posts were just published today.) I always mean to make it a weekly feature, but I generally forget. I’ll try to make it happen this time…

I've been having offline weekends with my family for the last few months, but still… my weekends never sound as productive as that.

I loved Ask-Design-Mom week. Really loved Stephmodo's family portraits.
And have really come to love reading Design Mom on a regular basis!

Thanks for the kind words, everybody!

Catherine – I love weekends like this too. I get my highs off productivity.

Deece – Thank goodness for Target.com! I know it's not as good as the real thing, but at least it's something. : )

Susan – I know you. You're more productive than that in any given hour.

I would love it if it did. Unfortunately, Target.com doesn't ship to the middle of the Pacific. :(

And yes, I really enjoyed this last Ask Design Mom Week. :)

Thanks for the mention Gabrielle…here's a little something that will make you laugh. So inside my youngest daughter's book is an iPhone, playing Casper the Ghost :) We couldn't get her to sit still for this picture (I wanted it so badly) and so we improvised. I laugh whenever I see it now…even on your blog!
