Monday Morning

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


Good morning, sweets! And happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you're all ready to start the brand new week.

I had a lovely long weekend but I have to be honest. I could use another day off. Greedy, I know, but who wants to stop having fun, right? :)

What did you all do this weekend? Any Easter festivities? My Saturday kinda got away from me so I never got around to making the glitter eggs or the coconut marshmallow nests but I did end up having a wonderful Easter anyway. And who knows? Maybe I'll end up making them next weekend for my Greek Easter family celebration. We shall see...

Hope you all have a lovely start to the week and I'll see you all tomorrow :)

I agree...I want another day off! After a week of vacation, I still haven't gotten enough! It's not greedy, it's natural ;)

GIRLY... YOU'RE GREEK???? SHUT IT!!!! I'M GREEK! Born and raised... 100%! That's cray! Too bad I've let my yiayia down and haven't gone to a Greek service since leaving home after high school... but I still enjoy a good Greek meal! My mom texted me to say "happy non-Greek Easter" yesterday! :) LOL! Loved following you and J through Instagram this weekend... your Saturday looked a lot like ours! :) XOXO!

Happy Monday my dear!! I understand about wanting another day, I could use one myself and another day to spend with M. The weather was just to gorgeous right?? I wish I could set up my office on the sidewalk.

Alexa said...

I could really use another day. It was a long weekend and not in a good way. :( Oh well...so it goes sometimes. Hope your week is lovely Dawn!

B. in the Know said...

I had such a restful weekend but am totally with you on needing an extra day. I woke up this morning and was not ready to face real life. I may sneak out early this afternoon because this week is going to be long - actually the next few weeks will be with a go-live for a project. So, I will be savoring all the moments I can to soak in the sweets. Hope your Monday is off to a good start, hun!
Much love,
B

we had my boyfriend's sister over for the weekend and we had a lovely time. I could do with another day off too although it would have to be spent indoors as the weather has turned and it's raining and raining ... Hope you have a lovely week ahead of you! xo

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Haha! I always feel like that after a busy family type of weekend, craving a little time to just hang! Such beautiful images, with that special "Alternative Wife" blush finish! I guess with Easter here, spring is REALLY officially off to a start! Hope yours is beautiful, Dawn!

I spent Easter at the pool, so laid back!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Sounds like a great weekend...but I'm feeling greedy, too, I need a day to recover from the weekend!

Ann On and On... said...

An extra day off is always appreciated. Like you, I didn't get around to making glittery eggs, but I did enjoy my time with some special friends. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

With love... said...

Hope you enjoyed the weekend.
xx have a laughter filled day.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I actually had a very fun Easter weekend, and I took today off to recuperate. :)

Wouldn't it be nice to have just one more day...or two? I wish! Glad you had a nice Easter. I am stuffed to the brink with jelly beans and have more hard boiled eggs that I know what to do with : ) We took our son for a carousel ride in the morning (they opened just for Easter) and then to a family dinner. Great to see relatives, eat, and relax.

Hope you are having a great week!

Anna said...

Those pictures are g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s!! And dont worry I also wanted/could have done with an extra day. Whoever came up with 5 days of work, 2 days of rest was crazy (it should be the other way around!) My Easter was filled with lots of food,family, friends and fun. Hope you have a fantastic week (just found your blog and seem to love it already!)
