When the Weekend High is Gone…

To say that I had a great weekend would be an understatement. My weekend was absolutely perfect! The balance of adulting time, mom time, and family time was one of the best it has been in a LONG time. I’ll be honest, I was expecting a pretty hectic weekend since my husband was out of town on a fishing trip, enjoying his much needed guy time, but some how the stars aligned for a weekend that felt almost magical.

Prior to the weekend arriving, I already knew one part would be great, my bestie was coming to town on Saturday and spending the night!!! Girls Night!!! As excited as I was, I knew that I’d have to split my time with her with my kids. Both of my kids absolutely love her and she loves them but sometimes I just want to talk endlessly UNINTERRUPTED and enjoy some girl time.  Prior to her arrival, I took the kids to go visit grandma for a little bit and magically she offered to watch BOTH of my kids the entire day while I go out and enjoy some quality girl time! I couldn’t pass up that offer and literally grabbed my stuff and ran out of her house (before she changed her mind), got in the car and listened to the most non kid friendly music I could the whole drive home. I’m not sure why that is, but when I’m given a little freedom I always feel like I need to blast some extremely Explicit tunes in the car. FREEDOM!!!!

Not that anyone really cares about the details of what we did, or maybe you do, I’ll save that for another time… but I have to share one part because if you are local to Orange County this place is a must to check out! If you have any sort of a sweet tooth this will be a little bit of heaven. The House of Chimney Cakes…











Now, tell me those don’t look absolutely delicious. Maybe Chocolate Chip Cookies or Matcha aren’t your jam but I’m sure they have something for your taste! Seriously, every bite was glorious!

Good food, good company and quality time made for a great balanced weekend but man… today is tough. I mean, Monday’s are hard enough, but Monday after an amazingly perfect weekend are really tough. I miss the high I felt this weekend from great friends, delicious food and a perfect life balance. This Monday was hard a hard one but thankfully the day is almost done.

Cheers to it being almost Tuesday… that’s one day closer to Friday! 🙂
