Monday Morning


Good Monday morning! After a lovely, fun-filled, extended {by 1 extra hour} weekend, I'm ready to start the brand new week bright eyed and bushy tailed. Spent the weekend with family & friends and nothing beats that in my book.

Had a wonderful time celebrating with my sister on Saturday. We visited some wineries and then had an amazing sushi dinner. And Sunday was all about brunch and movies with our best friend.

What did you all do this weekend? Hope your week gets off to a great start! xoxo

Jude said...

I love your extra one hour! :) Sisters, sushi, wineries and best friends - it sounds just perfect. Nothing major here, just lots of little eating/walking breaks to balance some sudden busyness (would've loved a sushi break :)). Hope your Monday's been going well, Dawn!

Nikki said...

Glad you had a great weekend Dawn!
Have a wonderful Monday!
Thanks for the sweet anniversary wishes!

Sounds like a perfect weekend! We had our family photos done and I went to a baby shower. It was a nice weekend all around. Have a gret day!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

Your blog and all the images on this post just feel so elegant.

Glad you had such a splendid weekend. It felt like a real weekend to me.... not as short as some of them seem.

Alleen said...

Bright eyed and bushy tailed is certainly NOT me this Monday morning! Children and dogs don't get as excited about the extra hour of "sleep", as my house has been up at 5 am for two days in a row!!

Lesson learned...I need a better eye concealer and an expresso machine!

Happy you had a wonderful weekend!!! :)

Sara Bentley @ Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Glad you had a fun weekend! Mine was good too- though this morning kicked off the week with a lovely fender bender. Arg! Hoping my week ends better than it started!!
