Monday Morning


Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Well here we are at the start of another week. I know all my Canadian friends have an extended weekend and are enjoying an extra day off today but for the rest of us it's back to work.

I'm kinda tired today being that I only had one day off this weekend. I'm really looking forward to the end of the day when I can crawl back into bed. The good news is that this week is a short work week. This Friday kicks off Memorial Day weekend, meaning it's the start of summer hours at my office and then I get the following Monday off! Can't wait for that!

What did you all do this weekend?

Woohoo for a short week! We're having a short week here too and were going to Kuala Lumpur but it seems our passports are missing! Sigh, weekend here will be fun of course.

Connie @ Sogni e Sorrisi said...

I am SO glad to have this Monday off even if I am catching up on some work remotely. Really, every work week should be 4 days, no?

Love how fresh and clean these photos look. Great for a Monday! I forgot next weekend is Memorial Day. Thanks for the reminder! I hope you have a great day in whatever you do today!

And, I cried A LOT watching Lost last night. So, your definitely not the only one. ;)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

1: I love how most of your Monday posts involve pictures of women comfortably lounging in their undies. I love this because this is what I do as often as possible!
2: How great that you will start getting Monday's off!!! No case of the Mondays!! That is a great way to spend summer.

The Very Subjective said...

i only got one day off this weekend, too, but that is usually how it goes, because i have lectures on sunday :)

p.s. i need that chair from the 4th pic (asap!).

My Monday mornings rarely look as romantic and relaxing as these pictures depict ;-) But most of Europe had today off as well... lucky us! But I'm glad you have a long weekend coming up!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

So pretty, fresh, and serene! my weekend consisted of alot of Lost lol and hanging with friends :)

And yes, I cried so much too in the finale!

Punctuation Mark said...

somehow when i got up this morning i didn't look like that girl at all... it was more like i was trapped by the magnetic field of my bed... have a great week!

shari @ little blue deer said...

Monday mornin' you sure look fine! Gorgeous pics! I know, I can't wait for Memorial Day, woo hoo! I traveled all last week so spent the weekend playing catch up, finally getting there!

Bailey@ peppermintbliss said...

These Monday images are a LOT more serene than my monday/weekend spent packing! Looking at blogs is making me crazy today because of my current home chaos, but then I remind myself that someone once moved into each of these beautiful spaces! right???

Kristin said...

The hubs and I sneaked out of town sans baby and went to Epcot. We stayed at a fabulous hotel and went out for a fabulous dinner. It was heaven! Here's hoping that this coming weekend it more relaxing for you!

Mrs T said...

I had such a crazy weekend - drove five hours home to go to my little sis's engagement party, then drove five hours back at the crack of dawn to host my best friends baby shower. So glad it's all over.

Wanted to stay in bed so bad Monday morning!

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Absolutely love the fab vintage style pics!! Great picks!

shopgirl said...

Dawn, I love these colours and this collection of photos you put together! This is one of my dream colour combinations for our kitchen. I don't think my husband is too keen, but maybe one day, I'll win him over.

Wishing you a great day!
