You know what happens when you spend back to back to back weekends away from home? Your house turns into a shithole, that's what. It's not messy, per say, but it could use a good cleaning. I was planning on doing the much needed cleaning spree on our condo this weekend, but then I thought to myself, "You know what? Why be stuck inside cleaning on a beautiful weekend when you can spend your time basking in the sun by the pool?"
So instead, I've spent the last few nights this week sweeping and mopping and dusting and now I don't have to worry about dealing with any of that crap this weekend. It feels so good to come home to a clean house after work and be able to focus on fun things like our outing at Top Golf with our friends tomorrow night. Jon and I are also having a celebratory date night tonight to drink to some of his recent good news at work. We plan on popping open one of the many bottles of champagne in our bar and ordering in some chicken wings for the occasion. We really know how to celebrate, don't we?!
In other fabulous news, my new bikini came in yesterday. I tried it on and pranced around the house in it until Jon got home so that he could see it. The first words out of his mouth were, "That's hot!" so I think he likes it. The L.L. Bean beach bag that I ordered months ago finally came yesterday too, so it was an all around good mail day! It ended up being backordered after I placed my order and wasn't supposed to arrive until after we get back from the Jersey Shore. I was a little disappointed that it wouldn't be here for our mini vacation, but now I don't have to worry about that! I got it embroidered with my monogram, of course, seeing as how I've been monogrammed obsessed ever since getting married. It's the perfect beach bag: large enough for at least 2 towels and the rest of our beach gear, plus it zips at the top so you don't have to worry about losing anything. Here's a photo of my bag (I ordered the large size):
I'm totally ready for the beach now!
