And just like that my little three day weekend is over. I really want to go back and do it all again, cause it was a good one. My "Me Party" on Friday was delightful and the rest of the weekend was good too. But first things first, it's Inspiration Monday. Today's pick is Gwyneth Paltrow. Her favorite role of mine to date may actually be Holly Holiday on Glee. I know, lame right?
This isn't my favorite Inspiration Monday outfit but I did my best. And I chose a horrible spot for pictures this morning so the sun kind of washed out the look in this first one. I also skipped boots in favor of the new sandals I picked up on my day off!
So speaking of my day off, it really was nice. I got an hour massage in the morning, then hit up Target and used a buy one get one half off coupon for shoes - two new pairs of sandals, heck yeah! Headed home and did a self mani/pedi, listened to some favorite tunes and totally vegged. So wonderful. I also designed the new blog header you now see above. Thank you Picasa. What do you think?
Saturday we had our golf lesson, then I headed over to the Band of Thrifters sale, picked up a few new goodies and met the lovely Amanda. Then I visited a friend stationed at a glass studio for this art festival that was going on in Northeast Minneapolis this weekend. After that the Pants Monkey and I grilled fantastic burgers for dinner and watched movies. Sunday it rained, so I was pretty much just lazy all day and that was nice too! I think all weekends should be three days long. I look forward to another one next weekend since it will be Memorial Day on Monday here in the US.
Here is a little more detailed shot of one of my new sandals. They are a great color, kind of a pewter tone that is going to go with everything. I like that they are a wedge shape too, I have so many flats and flip flops, but every now and then this short girl needs a little height boost! The other pair I got is super colorful. I can't wait to share them and the items I bought at the Band of Thrifters sale too!
Mr. Monkey gets his own Me Party on Friday, so he'll have an extra long weekend. I am a little jealous, but he deserves a day like that too. We have our anniversary next weekend too, so it will be another good one I think!
As always, please visit the two birds blog over here for more Inspiration Monday outfits or to play along with us, it is always a ton of fun!
