Good Monday Morning ♥

 Good Monday morning friends! 

How was your weekend? 

Every Monday my friend BJ does a post on her blog where she shares her thoughts over "Monday Morning Coffee."  I was thinking of her today so I thought I would do the same.  This morning I'm drinking our favorite Maxwell House coffee with a splash of the Dunkin Donuts extra creamy, cream.  It's sweetened with sugar and tastes so good.  

I'm also burning a new candle called Enchanted Moon.  Very appropriate since I have been admiring the moon all weekend.  Did you get a chance to see it?  I snapped this photo Friday night.  Her beauty never ceases to amaze me  

On Saturday I celebrated my birthday and turned 47.  It's not a very special number but I did enjoy my day.  John and I went shopping and I treated myself to some goodies at Target.  That night we had a delicious dinner.  On Sunday morning the three of us got up early and went to breakfast, something I hadn't done in ages.  I got cinnamon swirl French toast that was to die for!  

Sunday evening we celebrated with a family dinner with my parents and sister.  My Dad made the whole meal including the cake!  It was wonderful 

I can't say I'm sad about turning 47.  I am so touched by all the messages, texts, cards, and calls from friends and family.  

I even got these beautiful flowers from a special friend 

Sunday afternoon I did a little self care session and gave myself a facial and hair treatment.  I thought why not pamper my 47 year old self?!  It felt good.  I really need to do this more often.  

Starting a new trip around the sun feeling fresh! : ) 

And all of a sudden the weekend is over.  Today I'm working, still catching up from being on vacation.   I also have to food shop and plan something for dinner.  I haven't gotten that far yet this!  

In other news John and I are watching The Office!  He's seen it many times and has been trying to get me to watch it for ages. I finally agreed and I love it! We are almost at the end of the second season.  It's so funny!  Now I understand what all the hype was about : ) 

I hope you all have a great day and start to your week!  Can you believe we are almost at the end of July?!  Let's slow things down a bit, shall we 

Byeeeee!!! xoox
