I have been doing a poor job at updating my blog, but I want to get better. I’m making it a goal of mine to post more while also still challenging myself to stay true to my values and not revert back to the “influencer” mindset.
Regardless, here is how my Memorial Day Weekend went. :)
Mount Lemmon Adventures
I am not a morning person whatsoever. I wake up early only to go to work and I am notorious for lying in my sleep to convince people to let me keep sleeping. I once told Brandon that my morning plans got cancelled so he would stop trying to wake me up.
This weekend though I was actually up early for once and Stormie, Roman, and I went to Mount Lemmon with the dogs to a) get to better, cooler weather and b) take the dogs out on a hike.
Spoiler: Solo had a blast. I’m pretty sure that was the best day of his life. We took pretty good hike and even though it tired me out, Solo kept looking back at me as if he were telling me to pick up the pace. Then, we went to the Cookie Cabin at Summerhaven (the little town at the top of Mount Lemmon) and all had pizza. Harley and Solo even shared a slice of pizza. :)
I ended up being dead tired after that hike, and so was Brandon after working on his feet all day so when he got off work we just stayed home for the night, ordered Chinese food, and played video games. Best night ever, to be honest. I’ve never had a more relaxing night.
Stormie and I were supposed to go to the hair salon on Sunday because we both had appointments to get our hair dyed, but our stylist ended up getting sick so she cancelled the day before. We had planned to go to Dim Sum if we got out of our hair appointment in time so since our appointment was cancelled we just ended up going to Dim Sum.
Amy texted us when we were leaving and she ended up coming along as well, so this weekend I introduced Stormie and Amy to dim sum for the first time! ^_^
Memorial Day Monday
On Monday, we were supposed to get our friend group together for brunch, but everyone ended up dropping out last minute so it ended up just being me, Brandon, Steven, and his daughter Alice (our goddaughter).
We had tacos and Sonoran hot dogs for lunch at BK’s, and just caught up. Since Steven and Amy moved up north, they’re no longer two minutes down the road meaning it takes planning to see them. Alice had a blast at lunch eating her favorite— French fries!
Later that afternoon, we celebrated Memorial Day with a BBQ at Brandon’s parents’ house and since everyone was getting together we figured we would bring our Switch with us and try to get the family to play Mario Party.
We ate, played some games, then just went home to prep for the work week.
I had a great three day weekend and I wish all weekends were three day weekends.
