Channeling The Vacation Vibe


Happy Monday everyone. Let me fill you in on what I was up to this weekend. I like to think that my weekend officially started the moment I took the first bite of my lunch on Friday.

Chicago Dog with chips
This amazing hotdog came from a little place called JonnieBeefs. Brace yourself sweets, this meal was purchased from a gas station by my work. It is a separate counter deli, so it is marginally better than the rolling heat lamp hotdogs from other gas stations. It was served with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, a pickle, and atomic relish. This was foreshadowing to a great weekend!

Friday night, HM and I grabbed some pizza and then enjoyed a drink at the bar at which we first met. Awwwww. The place has expanded A LOT in the last three and a half years. We relaxed at the new outside bar and could almost summon the "we're on vacation" vibe.

Sadly, this was the best shot from the "look handsome" shoot
I was home and fast asleep by 10am. Man, I make an awesome date. Lucky HM. Saturday morning, we woke up at 9am (that is late for us) and headed out to brunch. Oh and yes, I did sleep for 11 hours (and would later take a nap). After brunch, we took the scraggly doodle on a walk.

After playing in the water and getting drenched, Buckley decided to horse play with!

A wet doodle and a wrestling match with a great dane equals a VERY muddy white poodle. He was so gross that we couldn't even bring him into the house and give him his normal shower. We had to do it hose style. Buckley is not a fan of the cold hose blast technique.

Boo. Sad face Buckley.
In the interest in full disclosure, Buckley also received a beard trim shortly after this photo. The ends were becoming permanently fused together....which was disgusting.

Later in the day, we headed up to Park City for our volunteer shift for the Ragnar (Wasatch Back) Relay. Miz Liz was on a team and though I don't have the courage to run it, I could fill a volunteer request she had. HM and I were stationed in a spectator parking lot. There were about 20 volunteers for one parking lot, plus the professional Amco parking staff. This meant we spent most of our time parked in our cool new Tommy Bahama chairs.

HM said I made the worst volunteer. Did I through rocks? Yes. Did I hide behind a large truck and fall asleep in the shade? You betcha. Did I read a couple of chapters of my book instead of direct foot traffic? Uh huh. HM on the other hand took his job a little TOO seriously. He was up answering questions, directing traffic, helping people back up their vans. Maybe it was his aviators and orange shoes/vest, but he looked the part.

Meet Officer HM
He even volunteered to be on trash can/dumpster duty. I don't know who he was trying to impress....

After our shift, we grabbed some food and headed home to take a nap. Later in the evening, we went to our friends house for a party and watched the sun set and city lights from a fabulous roof deck. I got to wear my cool new shirt:

The shirt was on clearance at Anthropologie and arrived in the mail Saturday. I wonder if the MIL would call that an old lady shirt? I paired it with white shorts and my awesome moccasins.

Can you say too cool for school? It felt like a fun vacation outfit. Channeling the vacation vibe has been the theme of my weekend. Okay, so that brings you all up to speed because Sunday I did nothing. Ate, worked out, relaxed, read a book. Nothing picture worthy. I hope you all had a great weekend too and I also hope everybody has a great work week. Try to find a way to feel that vacation vibe- be it hot dogs, outside bars, or dressy shorts!
