The Weekend: Ridin' Solo Edition


Happy start of a new week, friends! I hope you're all feeling rested and rejuvenated after the weekend. As I was planning to, I did get a lot of "me" time in. Here's how it went down.

Friday: Got my hair did. That's it. Seriously.

Saturday: I was up and at 'em at 6:15. I have a problem with sleeping in. Because I'm so excellent at waking up early, I rewarded myself with a pedicure. That's right. You get presents around here for waking up early. In the middle of said pedicure, pedicurist says, "You want a pedicure?".   WHAT? I thought that's what was happening on my feet right now? I just said yes, and went along with it while feeling confused.

Afterwards, I met Stephene for an Intoxi-cake martini at Max Brenner. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the liquid delicousness, and oh my, was it ever intoxi-caking. If you ever get the chance, PLEASE treat yourself to one. You're awesome and you deserve it.

Post-martini and watching a crime show or 3 (guilty pleasure), I decided to take my camera for a walk. We ended up walking for about 2 hours where I snapped the pictures you see above.  I got reacquainted with my macro lens. We had forgotten how much we like each other. 

Sunday: I slept in til 7! Holy smokes. I then went to church, cleaned the apartment, did some grocery shopping, spontaneously decided to give z blog a small facelift, and treated myself to a homemade mac n' cheese dinner. I'm five-years-old at heart and it sounded good, k?

And that'll just about do it, kids.  If you like any of the pictures above, they're all for sale on society6. Shop your heart out :) As a sidenote, if there's ever a picture that you'd like to purchase, but you'd rather have it in black and white or vice versa, let me know and I'll be happy to make the changes and add it to the shop for you!

Linking up with these lovely gals for the Weekend Update!

Your photos are beautiful! And if I woke up that early on a Saturday, I'd reward myself too

Dana @ five30three said...

Another weekend of your awesome pictures...damn you, Morgan! Come to Chicago and show me your ways with a photography crash course, please.

I love that sleeping in means waking up at 7am. That's how it is for me too. Except it's really only because I have a baby. I just cannot sleep late anymore, even when he spends the night with my mom. It's my maternal instinct to be an early riser now I guess.

Thanks for linking up, as always!

Nothing better than a hair day! =) Unless it gets screwed up like mine did about 2 weeks ago! ARGH! None the less, I feel your pain about waking up early. Sleeping in is like 7am!!! xoxo

Love your pictures with the macro lens, so pretty! I think your weekend sounds just perfect! I love the idea of treating yourself to waking up early. I also cannot sleep in and think spoiling myself is wonderful!
