Welcome Weekend!

nullnullPhotobucketnull

Good morning, loves! And happy Friday to you! I've been waiting for this three day weekend for some time now and I'm so excited that it's finally here!

I held this weekend aside and made no plans in the hopes that I would either be on a quick little getaway or that I'd have some lazy days with absolutely no commitments. Turns out I'm not going anywhere so I get a staycation instead.

Looking forward to sleeping in, leisurely strolls around the city and a few tasty meals. Can't wait!

What do you all have planned this weekend? Whatever you do, I hope you make it a great one!

xoxo

LatteLisa LisaHjalt said...

these photos speak to me!

Enjoy your staycation. We were thinking about maybe driving to Lille in France tomorrow but hubby has a sore throat and sounds like a rocker so maybe it isn't ideal to go on a road trip. Let's see what happens.

PS. I knew you would have humour for Marc Jacobs ;-)
