Monday Morning

Good Monday morning, lovelies! How are you all today? Did you have a wonderful weekend? I don't know if I'm alone here, but I totally stuffed myself yesterday with not 1, but 2 Easter meals. First a Greek feast with my family and then another delicious dinner with Js family.

Last thing I want to do is leave my house. I'd take one more day at home to lounge about, paint my nails and catch up on reading and tv. Sounds good, doesn't it?

The only thing that's motivating me to leave the house today is that I get to finally meet one of my favorite blogging friends, the lovely Marie-Eve, while she's in town visiting from Montreal! Last time she visited I ended up getting the flu and wasn't able to meet up. I was so disappointed. Can't wait to finally get to meet her!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! And enjoy the day! xoxo

I always hate Bank holidays like today, it always seems that life has come to an abrupt halt, it's like a ghost town outside!

Vanessa@Luxuria said...

@Tabitha-come to Spain, it's all back to normal here in Spain.
@Dawn-pleased you had a lovely Easter and wonderful to be able to hook up with a blogging friend. Let us know how it goes ;-)

I had a wonderful weekend & ate way too much, but it was great anyways :) Everything is quiet here, but sure to pick up once more of the week progresses. Glad to hear you had a wonderful time & enjoy meeting your friend, I'm sure it will be a grand time. I wish to be lounging around like her for sure :) xxx

fun! as you know, i love blog meet ups :)

I also gorged myself on easter foods. we had a giant dinner at 3pm and then i couldn't eat for the rest of the day. even when my sweet old neighbor offered a piece of birthday cake! My husband had some though and I went to chat with him. it was a great easter.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. It's always a little hard to get back on track after a holiday weekend, but I'm happily enjoying one more day off. I love those two Chanel nail polish shades. Have a lovely week, Dawn! Ada

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Simply luscious photos, as usual, love the way you edit everything to become little dreams, Dawn! I did have a lovely weekend, spent it out of town with family, coffee at outdoor cafes, stopping into cute little shops, enjoying a macaron at a European bakery, fun discovering new restaurants and then yesterday, a beautiful Easter brunch in a conservatory before heading home. Yes, I'm in a daze today, as you are, wanting some lollying around with my legs on the back of the sofa like the girl in your photo!! Kisses and hugs!

Jess said...

I had a great weekend - but it is hard to get back into the swing of things at the office - typical Monday. So fun that you get to have a blogger meetup today - do enjoy!
Much love,

Oh, must be fun to meet a bloggy friend in real life - strange - but you do get a good feel for people comunicating this way. Am still digesting all the lovely food as well - thank god today is a quiet day! xox

Diana said...

I ate too much as well!! We celebrated our anniversary the night before Easter and had an amazing meal at an Italian Restaurant and then had a big ham dinner for Easter last night!! Laying around sounds like a great idea! Love the photo of the ruffled bed! :) Have a great day with your blog friend, thats so great you get to meet!

Dancing Branflake said...

Those sheets are incredible! Have an awesome blogging meet up!

SabinePsynopsis said...

So glad you are having a good time. I've also been majorly affected by laziness and we are being so spoilt here... beautiful weather, 4 days no work, and in a few days we'll have another 4 days off (royal wedding and all). xoxo
