There are many ways weekends make me happy. Although I enjoy the usual friends & family gatherings, parties and events, I equally love weekends staying in. I love being able to play by my schedule, do things when I feel like, and check things off my to-do list that I never have time to during the week.
This weekend I did just that. While everyone was out dolled up in costumes for Halloween, I stayed in after a bestie of mine sprained her ankle last week and we called off Halloween plans (glad I hadn't spent any money on my costume yet!). I had a blast at home being lazy and taking my time with literally everything.
Here are some things I love about lazy Sundays at home.
Climbing out of bed feeling rested and satisfied, instead of having to peel my unwilling body out of the covers and drag my half-awake self into the shower.
Giving my skin and eyes a break. I spent today bare faced and in my glasses. No contacts + no makeup = super refreshing.
Spontaneous baking. I baked my 3rd banana cupcake batch this month because I had use up overly ripe bananas and nutella frosting from last time. I think I got my mom hooked on these.
Playing around with my new 1.5 inch curling iron without worrying I'll mess up (I'm not leaving my house - so no one will see!). Practice makes perfect.
Sipping coffee because I feel like it, not because I need the caffeine. Starbucks is great but nothing beats a simple mug of instant coffee at home with a good book.
Making tea. Lots and lots of tea.
Not having to frantically put on my work clothes after getting out of the shower. Instead I slip into my pink-as-a-marshmallow bath robe, let my hair dry naturally instead of blowdrying, and think of what to do for lunch.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
