Good Monday Morning! ♥

Good Monday Morning! 

I hope you all had a nice weekend! The weekends go by so fast, don't they? After a cold and rainy weekend, I have been rewarded with a glorious sunny day today.  I'm so enjoying Spring days lately, despite having horrible allergies, it's worth it for the sunshine and pretty flowers.  I've waited all winter for it and it's finally here.  

One of my neighbors has this pretty tree in their front yard.  I went for a little walk this morning and snapped a few pictures when I passed by.  

It doesn't get any more springy than this : ) 


We had a very low key weekend.  On Saturday I did venture out to the mall because Bath and Body Works was having a candle sale.  I picked up two new ones as a little treat for myself.  Lighting a new candle is one of life's simplest pleasurers, wouldn't you say?  I had Strawberry Pound Cake burning all morning and it is delightful! (run- don't walk - to B&BW and get one 🍓)

On Sunday we went to an early mass, out to breakfast, and then upon returning home I immediately put my "cozy clothes" (aka pj's) back on.  I curled up in my bed and watched a Hallmark Christmas movie for two hours.  It was just what my heart & soul needed! 

After that I thought I should get out of bed and actually do something productive so I did some light housework, cleaned two bathrooms, and baked a pumpkin chocolate chip bread.  My Dad said "pumpkin bread? In May?"  I replied, "YES Dad, in May!".  It's delicious.  No regrets ever with pumpkin bread! 

Last night we watched Unfrosted (with Jerry Seinfeld) on Netflix.  It was very cute. I really enjoyed it.  It takes place in the 60's so naturally I loved the vibes too!

And now all of a sudden it's Monday.  I heard a rumor that there are individuals out there who actually LIKE Mondays??  Who are you people?!  Teach me your ways, because I don't understand you : ) 

Have a great day my friends! 

PS... please enjoy this little video I made you this morning.  Do you like tea cups and pretty things? Me too.  Enjoy! 

Bye! xoxo


  1. Happy Monday! Sounds like you had a nice, relaxing weekend. I'm glad you are having a nice, sunny day today. The pink dogwood blossoms are gorgeous! And thank you for sharing a video of your lovely tea collection. I'm also obsessed with everything tea related. I especially love going for afternoon tea or just having it myself at home in the afternoon. I'm actually having a cup of Earl Grey tea now as it's one of my favorites. Do you have a favorite tea?

    1. I honestly love all teas! I have to start my day with coffee but I LOVE a tea in the late afternoon or evening. When I have time I try to remember to use my tea pot and make it special. I love going out for afternoon tea too! I need to do that again soon : ) I think my favorite right now if also Earl Gray. It's sooo good! Although I've never had an English breakfast tea I didn't like either ;)

  2. Hello dear Gal!
    How gloriously Spring is popping out over there! The trees are so pretty. And I absolutely loved your video. How fun to get a tour of your tea sets. 😍 They're all so pretty....but the one your Mom made for you is my absolute favorite! I know that must be an extra special treasure to you. Also, you're such an absolute Doll pretty Lady. :) Blessings on your week ahead. xo

    1. Thank you so much Carrie! I am trying to get better at talking into the camera! LOL I love sharing little ordinary moments and bit & bobs from my home. I'm having fun with it! I love the quilted tea pot from my mom the best too. It's definitely something I will treasure forever! Thank you for the kind words! I hope you had a wonderful week. I'm happy it's almost the weekend! xo
