Happy Monday (yes, I know but it’ll be ok)!
Mondays are a tiny bit easier after a fabulous weekend and that’s exactly what it was!
Saturday started with a run in the sunshine (smile) and involved finding a great new nail place. I purchased a Groupon and was so happy with my manicure that I asked them to paint my toes too (saved me doing it at home)! A girls gotta have pretty nails for a party! (pic was taken post wedding!!!)
Saturday night was the afters of my best friend’s, brother’s wedding. I was actually in school with the bride too so was honoured to be invited to help celebrate with them. The location was the beautiful Brookelodge Hotel, a really gorgeous wedding venue set in the middle of the lush Wicklow countryside.
It was such a happy occasion, Sandra (the bride) looked just stunning, as did her very handsome groom. It was impossible not to get swept up in the excitement of the evening and we all danced my little toes off to the upbeat Bentley Boys band. Like me, both Sandra and Phil went to Wesley College, so among the guests there were some familiar faces I hadn’t seen in years. I came away with a warm fuzzy feeling from spending time chatting to and dancing with lots of old friends and schoolmates! Dar and I even managed to throw a few shapes on the dance floor (loved it)! Thanks to S & P for a fantastic party… have an amazing honeymoon!!!!
After a truly delicious breakfast in our B&B and a leisurely drive home, the sofa and World War Z minded us for the afternoon.
Today is the start of a new week and after the weekend indulgences, I’m back to the healthy norm. Last night I made some coriander hummus in 5 mins flat in my new mini-chopper and Mum kindly made me the most amazing tabouleh… I’ll have to get the recipe for you guys. Yes those are peas… they were leftovers, I love peas!!!
I hope you have a great week whatever you’re up to…
I’d love to hear what you do on a Monday to get motivated for the week… leave me a comment x
