Morning friends – I hope you all had lovely weekends <3

This weekend was a bit of a lazy one for Cole and I, but I’m not ashamed to admit it. Sometimes, I just love a good lazy Saturday – don’t you? You know, the kind of Saturday where you spend most of your day either at home, or putting around town with no agenda, and generally accomplishing nothing in particular? These are my kind of Saturdays. There is just something so satisfying about waking up naturally – {as opposed to the sound of a beeping alarm} – even if you are like me and still manage to wake up before 7am on Saturdays without fail, despite the fact that you know you are allowed to sleep in. {Yes, I actually do this every Saturday – what can I say? I’m a morning person}.

Even though I love these lazy Saturdays now, the idea of it is actually something of a new concept for me. Up until about a year ago  I would always schedule my Saturdays kind of like how I schedule my work days – completely structured down to the last detail. Is this strange? I am a planner, so it was always just natural for me to create a to-do list for my Saturdays. I would fill it up with the kind of errands that “need to get done”, but you don’t ever have time to do during the week. So inevitably, I would always find myself stressing out on Saturdays unnecessarily over the tasks that I just had to get done. I think you can guess where this is going… because my lists were always unrealistically long, I was usually unable to actually get everything done. – So I would stress all day about having a failure of a day off just because I couldn’t check off all the things on my list. Do you ever do this? It sounds so silly I know, but for the longest time I just couldn’t help myself.

Happy Friday lovelies! We are heading into an amazingly gorgeous weekend of sun and temperatures that might even spike into the low thirties and I am so pumped to get outside and enjoy the weather! So if you are on the same page as me and have some big weekend plans to take advantage of the weather and get active – make sure you start your busy weekend mornings off right with a healthy and delicious breakyfast! It is the most important meal of the day after-all 😉

This past weekend we had a little bit of a break from the Haney Farmers Market, because as of right now I have only registered myself to be in two per month. Even though I love spending my Saturdays at the market selling our baked goodies to hungry patrons, it was definitely nice to take a little bit of a breather and have some free time to spend with Cole. So with a weekend free of any obligations or commitments, and a weather forecast of nothing but sunny skies and temperatures in the high twenties, we were stoked to get outside for some much needed weekend adventures!
