Weekend Snapshots

(Living in the Arctic has its benefits!)

(Why are seahorses so dang cute?!)

DSCN4439.JPGA bun, a bobby pin, and a brooch.  The perfect solution for Saturday hair.
(This is looking down on the top of my head.)

DSCN4449.JPGClever lunch coasters.  Extra points for the "$" in coaster.
(If you have been living under a rock, go here.)

DSCN4450.JPGSliders, mini Chicago dogs, and parmesan frites.
(I saved up calories all week for this meal!)

DSCN4452.JPGBrowsing at Barnes and Noble.
(With Matt and I "browsing" usually means buying lol.)

DSCN4457.JPGMatt and I's new evening activity.
(The puzzle is a pop art Chicago cityscape so we've had fun spotting our favorite haunts.)

DSCN4461.JPGLeisurely Sunday morning coffee.
(That isn't happened in months!)

All in all, it was a lovely weekend (even with working Friday, Saturday, Sunday shifts at the store.)  Sometimes low key, not super exciting weekends are best kind to have.  How was your weekend?

I love browsing at the bookstore... Except I'm not big on buying books so I usually write down titles and then go to the library haha.

I also haven't done a puzzle in years, that sounds like so much fun!

Great photos! They do a snow sculpting contest this time of year up in Breckenridge that I love going to here in Colorado - so much crazy talent!

Low key weekends are definitely the best, and even your low key weekend sounds like it was full of fun activities and good food! Mmmm, those sliders look amazing... And a pop art puzzle? That sounds awesome! I hope you're not missing any corner pieces!

Ok, so first off, I love puzzles. I love how they befizzle my mind with all of their puzzly goodness into destressing. And I love the bookstore. Just the way it smells. Ahhh. And that coaster. Can I get a set for mi casa?
