Weekend Rundown

I'm pretty sure I discovered the perfect work to play ratio over the weekend. Friday was technically my first day off from what seemed like the longest work week, ever. But, the day was filled with catching up on laundry, grocery shopping and running a few errands. I felt like I didn't have enough time to truly recoup before having to jump back into the world of red and khaki on Saturday morning. Come that evening, I was ready to knock out and I did after watching a few episodes of The Office with G.

Yesterday morning I rolled out of bed around 7:30 feeling fully refreshed. Once G woke up, I fixed breakfast and we snuggled in to watch the season 8 premiere of Doctor Who that we'd recorded the night before. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the 12th doctor (Peter Capaldi), but I have a feeling he'll grow on me. I felt the same whenever Matt Smith replaced David Tennant and he ended up being my favorite doctor, though David Tennant will always have a special place in my heart as well.

After mama-bear got back from church, we all went out to eat at Olive Garden and then indulged in a little retail therapy. G was able to get the X-Box One (since PC gaming was somewhat of a bust) and I finally purchased the prime lens for my camera that had been on my wish list for well over a year now. For once, I didn't feel bad for spoiling myself a bit. I don't purchase expensive things for myself very often, but I've been working hard and I felt like a reward was in order. You guys, this lens is a beast! For something so compact (it's the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II), it's image quality and performance is great. Great investment overall.

Here's a few of the shots that I've taken with it so far: 

I'm off today, but I have a few more errands to run and loads of laundry to do. I feel like I've gotten enough rest and I'm ready to conquer the world whatever this week throws at me! I hope you all had a nice weekend and try to enjoy the rest of your Monday.
