Monday Musings

Another weekend has come and gone and I’m fighting the Monday blues. We had another great weekend and for the first time in months, we did not go on the boat or go to the beach… Gasp!

Friday night we decided to be old married folks and grill out and watch Netflix. I did my best attempt to set the table nicely with fresh flower arrangements. I’ll be honest, I’m not very good at this stuff but at least I’m trying.

Even though we did dinner at home, we decided we couldn’t pass up the chance to go to our favorite Italian restaurant, Roberto’s, for a glass of Prosecco and their homemade key lime pie cheesecake. It’s incredible and we crave it 2-3 times a week but usually resist the urge to add the extra pounds to our already growing waistlines.  To finish off the night we watched Penguins of Madagascar on Netflix and it was pretty cute.

Saturday we had tickets to the Corey Smith concert at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach. I discovered Corey Smith in college and my sorority sisters and I still love listening to his music as his lyrics bring back memories of our wilder days. My husband is now a big fan after hearing him play at the Country Music Festival in Myrtle Beach this June.  Before we attended the concert, we explored Barefoot Landing. It’s a cute shopping and dining area in North Myrtle Beach.  We enjoyed dinner and did a wine tasting at the Carolina Vineyards Winery tasting room. You can taste seven wines for $3. Our favorite wine was Barefoot Blush and we purchased a bottle. The concert itself was a blast and Corey Smith never disappoints.

On Sunday, we were as lazy as can be and slept in for the first time in forever. We did a little cleaning around the house but finally decided to get out of the house for a movie. We saw Trainwreck, which in my opinion is one of the funniest movies of the year. I laughed hysterically the entire time and Chad enjoyed all of the scenes with John Cena and Lebron James. Another relaxing and fun weekend with the husband and we tried to soak it in as we will be busy the next couple of weekends traveling and with friends coming into town.

Are you still feeling the Monday blues?
