Over the Weekend: Three Day Saturday


What happens when you wake up by 7am and get out the door by 8am? Saturday ends up feeling like it's three days long. A few friends and I hit the road early to go to what turned out to be a really disappointing yard sale. We recouped with coffee and pastries and a walk around Highland Park, a little thrifting in Bloomfield, and a much needed trip to Ikea, all before 3pm. I love days like that, as much as waking up so early on a weekend can be painful, the sense of truly taking advantage of the day is worth it. Especially when those few hours turn out to be the only few hours of sun all weekend.

Did you have a nice weekend?

Sounds lovely ! I like rising early on Saturdays at least ...it feels like your making use of the day !
Mine was spent revising for my exams unfortunately!!!

I also got up uncharacteristically early on Saturday and got so much done! Such a lovely feeling. Where did you thrift in Bloomfield?

you're so right- it's a big pain to wake up early, but totally worth it. i'm trying to remember that as life post grad holds long to-do lists, but still the tendency to sleep until noon.

bummer that the yard sale was disappointing, but at least you made up for it :)

Sorry to hear about the disappointing yard sale! I hate waking up early on the weekend, unless there is the promise of vintage and thrifted finds. But a good Ikea run always makes me happy.

What a great sounding & looking weekend. I love puttering around town with my girlfriends and checking out different spots, especially Ikea - I love it there!!

And last but not least... thank you SO much for adding me to your blog roll, lady. Really, you are such a huge fashion inspiration of mine! I'm honoured!! xo

Seriously, you need to take a trip to Bellefonte/State College. You will not regret it (though your wallet might). I've loved your last few posts, it reminds me of when you first started blogging (yes, I've been reading for that long haha) with you joking about your cats and such. Also, I love the simplicity, I think its a trend that a lot of bloggers are relieved to admit that sometimes despite the desire to add more shit, we just need to keep it comfortable and simple.

I agree it's so nice to take advantage of the weekend and get earlier then sometimes. Also on a similar note as I get older I enjoy going to bed early or at a normal time Friday nights so I wake up fresh and ready for my Saturday and can take full advantage of it. My girlfriends and I went to see Feist Friday at a beautiful performing arts theatre in town that was once a vaudeville theatre and then movie house back in the day. Needless to say Feist put on a great show and I was in bed by 11:30ish. My husband and I were suppose to go away for the weekend but plans changed so we took advantage of being in town to spend a nice day together walking around outside, getting brunch, checking out the farmer's market and then going to a music festival happening that our friends put together. I strongly recommend the musician Death Vessel. His voice is so angelic. We caught The Blow later that night and some local acts. Sunday I went to a friend's clothing swap party and brunch. Later the husband went to see The Avengers and get Italian for dinner in honor of his Italian mother who has passed. A good weekend all and all. Hope your week is going well!
