Treat Yourself Tuesday #2

Treat Yourself Tuesday Badge

Another Tuesday, and another treat yourself post! Check out my 1st one here!! Thanks again to my awesome blend, Becky, for hosting this linkup!!

On Saturday I had the rare opportunity to have the day by myself.

Grandma and Grandpa took Luke to the lake for the weekend. Scott stayed in Mankato to take care of some work. And it didn’t make sense for me to drive back to Mankato, just to drive back to the cities on Sunday. So, I took full advantage of having a day to myself! And the fact that I wasn’t at home, meant that I didn’t have any housework, unpacking, etc. to feel bad about doing or not doing!

So, I started the day with a 7 mile run with my friend Sue. We went to one of my favorite places – Pike Island.


And then Caribou coffee.


And new Jamberry nails (<–FYI link to my online party).


Lunch at Panera with Melanie. Squash soup of course!


An afternoon on the couch, in front of the fire, in my pajama pants.


Dinner with my handsome husband. And spending time making some fun choices for our new house!!


And cupcakes.


It was the perfect treat yourself day. Smile 

What have you done to treat yourself lately?

Don’t forget to enter my Wholly guacamole giveaway – ends tonight at midnight!!

      Yes!! You need to try it ASAP. And I am totally jealous of your upcoming trip – can’t wait to read all about it!

  2. Ha ha–I bombed my own photo with my arm in from of my face. Classic. Gosh I had so much fun with you at lunch. I know I said it already but seriously, I love you.
    Your weekend is exactly what I would call a perfect weekend. Complete with exercise, friends, family, good food, relaxation, and cupcakes.

  6. Lounging in front of the fire and cupcakes. Sounds heavenly! I’m going to treat myself today with lunch out with a friend and a much-needed hair cut. My ponytail is turning into a knotty rat’s nest every time I run!

  8. Those cupcakes like mighty delicious, the green monster one would have totally been my first choice! hehe

    That squash soup from Panera is to die for!!! One of my ultimate favorites, paired with the apple Fuji salad. Now if only we could get a Caribou down here in FL, I would be in heaven! I prefer Caribou over Starbucks any day.

  9. Lots of fun treats! I really like that monster cupcake.
