Monday! EW...

And just like that, Monday is here!  A Monday after any weekend is rough but the first Monday after Daylight Savings Time...

For real!!  How hard was it to get outta bed this morning.  I always forget that it's so dark!!  I have to get adjusted to it!  So do the kids for that matter!!  Tired cranks were in front of me today!  HA!  But I gotta say...I am loving this lighter later bit!  And it warmed up to fifty today!  My mood is improving, I've talked to my neighbor, who told me she has isn't seen me in for ever!  (To which I promptly told her, I haven't seen anyone, being so sick ALL. WINTER. LONG!  But she offered me so crab salad, and I gotta say it was delish.  We also made a wine date!  Love my little neighbor!! (She's in her 70's BTW!!)

On to the weekend! Or really just Saturday!!  It was a busy one!!  My friends Kerri and Chris, who I talked about here and here, had a first birthday for their daughter Brinleigh. So me, my sister and brother-in-law and nieces headed to the party.  Kerri got close with my older sister Meghan when she became pregnant with her first daughter, Addison.  She asked her for advice, help, etc.  (cause Lord knows she's not getting any of that from Me!!....LOL)

It was a really nice time.  If I was a better blogger, I would have taken more pics!  Kerri did a really great job decorating and had such a fun craft table for the kids!!  Here are the few pictures I did take!

The best of friends...Brinleigh just love her Aunt Mel and Aunt Katie

I know this is a random picture of me and my BIL cheers-ing with Rice Krispies treats, but there's a funny story.  At the party Anthony brought up the fact that he's been with my sister for 20 (!) years.  So....I told him (again!) that I would never forget the night I met him because he was wearing a hideous tiger shirt, had long curly hair and I was thinking, where on earth did Meg find this guy?!? Ha!  He remembers that I was making Rice Krispie Treats.  So we always laugh about it! And lo and behold there were Rice Krispie treats at the party!  So we toasted to twenty years!!  On the table you can see some of the crafts and things Kerri had for the kids!

After the party, and with about twenty minutes to spare when I got home, I headed out to dinner with some of my work besties.  It's always fun to chat it up, drink wine and eat sushi together outside of work.  Another friend we used to work with was supposed to come out from Brooklyn and we were supposed to all just hang at my place, but with the rush that was Saturday (and the Peapod delivery that never was on Thursday), I was really happy to just go out!  Even if our Edamame was taken before we were done!!  But we got some more had another drink and finished that bowl!

Sunday was a quick one!

This was my photo on Insta Sunday!!
Three glasses of wine, Nyquil at midnight and springing forward, I slept in til noon...woo hoo!!  

Sleeping in was great, but then you look up and it's 6!  Ha!!  Did some quick loads of laundry, cleaned up a bit, did some after care duties, and got ready for the week!

How long it takes for the weekend to get here, but how quickly it goes!!  

Looking on the bright side of things, it's gonna be in the fifties all week, I have plans with my sister tomorrow, which I'm really excited about, and when I walk home on Wednesday and Thursday night from school, it'll be light out... wooohooo!!!

Hope you all have a great week!
