Over The Weekend

The Husband and his dad went on a boys' trip to the Giants spring training in Arizona over the weekend so I had the place all to myself for two whole days.  I had big plans to explore new neighborhoods, get a lot of work done, and go hiking, then basically ended up doing none of that.  Instead, I enjoyed what was probably one of my last all-to-myself weekends by indulging some of my secret single behaviors.  An at-home mani/pedi, a dinner consisting of an entire wedge of brie with some apple slices and gluten-free crackers, grown-up coloring, lots of bad TV and lame-but-oddly-satisfying movies (Neighbors, Twilight ... I know, I know), walks around the neighborhood, cuddles with the piggies, and playtime with my camera.  It turned out to be a pretty low-key weekend and it was exactly what I needed.

We have these gorgeous Asiatic lilies I found at Trader Joe's so I decided to step outside my standard portrait box and have a little fun experimenting with prisms and textures to bring out the flowers' details.

How was your weekend?




  1. Oh my goodness, grown-up coloring. Expecting a little one already has me wanting to buy the big pack of crayons and colored pencils, and Spencer keeps joking that I'll have to buy two coloring books at a time: one for Baby J, and "Mommy's coloring book." Because yeah, I'll flip out if my pages get scribbled on.

    Your weekend sounds lovely! Though I rarely have days to myself, I do often have evenings alone -- and I love watching all the trashy shows on my DVR, reading magazines and putting my pajamas on at 5 p.m. Since our chance to indulge may soon be scarce, sounds like you made a great use of your time!

  2. Alone time is so so so important - cleaning the house, mani/pedi, reading, eating peanut butter straight from the jar - yes to all those things!
