Why do Mondays always have to feel so blue? Yes, Monday means that the weekend is over and it's back to work, but why let it bring us down? Well, today I'm taking the initiative to turn this day teal, ya know, blue's brighter, happier, bolder cousin! I started off my morning with kitty snuggles, iced coffee, and a quick drive to work, and since then, things have been smooth sailing! Well, other than getting salad dressing on my blouse - Whoops! 

This weekend Scott and I kept things pretty laid back. On Saturday, we did a little bit of shopping at a local discount store and got take-out Italian for dinner. This particular discount store, Last Chance, is a hot mess of a store that carries new/used/damaged items from Nordstroms and Nordstroms Rack. Half of the time Scott and I go there we don't walk out with anything, but every once in awhile we score. On Saturday, the discount gods must have been shining down on us because I walked away with three dresses amazing at $12 a piece! Woohoo! I felt like I practially stole the things. Anyways, Saturday treated us real well and the weekend was even over yet! On Sunday, I attended a farmers market pop up shop at my local Anthropologie. They had so many goodies and treats, and I felt quite honored that the ladies and gents from Anthro wanted me to be there. The rest of the day was spent people watching, eating leftover Valentine's Day candy, and having dinner with my sweet husband at one of our favorite local restaurants, Liberty Market.

The warmer weather that we've been having around Phoenix has defintiely been putting me in the mood for spring. While I LOVE dark colors, and cold weather digs, it's going to feel good to pop on a bright color and paint my nails with pastels. Oh, and eat some of those yummy Cadbury mini eggs that tend to start circulating in the stores this time of year. We've already eaten a whole bag at our house!
