Day of Fun

For as many weekends as we can seem to remember right now, Austin and I have made a list for ourselves of something to do. Something with the house, or something with the yard, or some event that we have to get up and go to.

This weekend was no different originally. We planned on buying some beautiful hydrangeas for the backyard, planting and digging around, etc.

Friday night, however, we decided enough was enough. All of that could hold until next weekend. We were declaring a "Day of Fun".

We do this from time to time, and though I don't remember how we named them, or how they even started, they are just something that we do.

Here are the rules - on a Day of Fun:

  • You sleep in as late as you want
  • There is no agenda
  • You do only things that you want to do, nothing that you have to do
  • No Guilt
That's it. Those are the rules.

So, for our Day of Fun this time we did just that, whatever we wanted.

First, we slept in until 10:15. Ahhhh, that was nice. It was almost like college again. Then, we got up and showered and since it was nice, took Bings for a walk.

Austin suggested we go grab a burrito at Moe's and then see Iron Man 2. So we went and ate, and then we headed to MacArthur Center. After a quick glance at the movie times (every half hour all day - wowza) we decided to walk the mall first.

Since we were feeling all summery, we bought some summer shoes to match our mood.

These for him:

And these for me:

Then we headed to the movie, which was long, but entertaining, and headed home. We swung by the grocery store to pick up some ingredients for this to-die-for Barefoot Contessa Sandwich and vino.


And then we spent the rest of the evening hanging out in the early 1800's with John and Abigail Adams.

All in all, a lovely, relaxing and refreshing day. Add to the mix that my phone was dead, and I intentionally did not charge it and you get an even more relaxing day.

We will back to housework as usually this next weekend, but this Day of Fun was a welcome break. 

Try it sometime.



Your phone is never charged.
