mama's on vacay

guess what friends?

I am officially on a little vacation. A 4 day weekend is about as close as I am getting to a vacation for a long time - so, I am declaring this holiday weekend a vacation. 

I kicked off my fake vacation with knitting group. It was nice. I have't knitted since May, so it felt good to get back into it. After knitting group, I did a little shopping and got a new dress and frilly shirt, just because. 

Tomorrow I have to take Sawyer for a check up (boo!) but we will probably go to the zoo or mall or something and indulge in something frivilous like multiple train rides or unhealthy soft pretzels. 

That is the extent of my vacation planning so far. I want to do some sleeping in, some crafting, blogging, and catching up on my reader (currently at about 200 unread posts) and my email (ack!).

Just for fun, here is a picture I took this afternoon. I couldn't let that glorious super bright lighting (or my good hair day!) go to waste. I am terrible about taking and then sharing pictures of myself, so here you go. I like to know what bloggers look like, so maybe you do too. 

This is my vacation face.

Happy fake vacation everyone!
