This was a hard Monday to face for some reason. Last night I had a major case of Sunday "scaries." I think having Friday off made the weekend feel extra long and luxurious and the thought of waking up for work today seemed to take extra energy. I guess that's the mark of a good weekend though, right?

Friday I slept until 10 am which was beyond glorious, changed into my new longing clothes courtesy of Costco that cost me $9.99, curled up on the couch with the dog and proceeded to watch Bachelor in Paradise against my better judgement. I told people at work I absolutely refuse to watch either The Bachelorette or The Bachelor (unless they make Wells the bachelor this year), but I would watch Bachelor in Paradise so I would actually know what the hell they're talking about at lunch. 
After watching last week's episodes, I proceeded to binge watch Scandal for the next like fourteen hours (like seriously from noon until 6 am the next morning because Shonda Rhimes runs my life) in an attempt to catch up to the current season. Can't even stand how dramatic and unnecessary but also how much I love, love, love it.


Sammy night Sammy and I went down to Taylor Street for the Italian fest. We haven't been before because the festival always falls on a weekend when something else is going on, but this year we were able to sneak over there. We thought it was a tad overrated--the Taste of Melrose is way better, better food and more authentic--but enjoyed the food we did try. It was incredibly crowded which really affects the whole experience too.

On Sunday we got up early and met Sammy's whole family for their annual picnic at Lake Geneva. 

The weather was in the low 80s and the sun stayed behind the clouds which made for a cool and comfortable day. 

Fell right off the wagon obviously^^

For some reason, they waited until the end of the day to take a family picture so some people had already left. This is like half of the people who were here.

Oh my heart.

We got home early and spent the rest of the night watching The Flash (Sammy got me a tad bit hooked now too) before I headed home to get ready for the week (which really just involved me showering since I insist on doing the bare minimum on Sunday nights). 

It was a fun weekend to spend with family and get some quality time in with Sammy. He works every weekend throughout the end of September and all of October and November, so we're savoring these last few weekends he's off. 

Hope everyone had a fun-filled weekend!
