Happy Monday loves!

I hope everyone had a very relaxing weekend!

Today I am going to do another round of Marvelous in my Monday with the beautiful Katie at Healthy Diva Eats.

♥ ♥ ♥

I really like doing this, because what makes my Monday’s marvelous are my wonderful weekends I have been having.  I love looking back on all the positive things that have been happening.  That’s how we grow and learn right? By our positives and accomplishments, not the negatives and failures. A failure is really just an opportunity to learn.

So let’s take a look at what has made my weekend and Monday so fabulous.

Let’s start with Friday night.

First great thing? I got my braces off!!

Goodbye brace-face, hello straight teeth! So excited.

♥ ♥ ♥

Second great thing?

Matt surprised me with these.

I love flowers.

Boys do learn 😉

Friday night to celebrate my newly fabulous teeth, we went out with a few friends to get sushi.

(do you know how wonderful it is, not to have food stuck in braces and having to pick it out? It’s amazing by the way.)

It was a dress up kind of night.

Matt and I got a bit fancy. Well fancy for us. We are your total jeans and t-shirt type of people. It was fun to get a little dressed up to celebrate.

We had a wonderful night out with friends which is what I needed. Good food. Good friends. Good conversations.

Saturday = day of relaxation.

And it was wonderful.

This guy wouldn’t leave my lap!

I didn’t really mind though. He is pretty good company.

Matt and I ran some errands on Saturday, but it mostly consisted of lounging around. I’ll take it.

Sunday started in a most fabulous way as well.

This breakfast was simple, but so satisfying.

Cottage cheese mess topped with a mess of cereals, frozen banana, fresh strawberries and raspberries and of course a peanut butter drizzle.

I’m not gonna lie, sometimes a bowl of cereal just really hits the spot.

For Father’s Day we headed up to see Matt’s parents.  Matt’s mom really isn’t doing well (she had a tumor removed from her GI tract) and Matt’s dad has been super stressed. It was nice to get up there and kind of give him and break and get him out of the house for a bit.

We went fishing for a part of the day.  While the boys fished I found a nice spot under a tree and sat and read in the shade.  It was a beautiful day, so it was so nice to be outside and enjoy it.

It was an overall great weekend.

Very relaxing. Just the way I like it.

Well loves, I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday and I hope the rest of your week is fabulous as well.

Did you do anything special for Father’s Day?

Do you tend to relax on your weekends or are you still go go go?
