Marvelous Monday Morning

Good news, Summer hasn't left us after all.  The sun is shining and the temperature is rising.  I'm so damn happy this morning.  When I sat down to think about how that could be possible on a Monday morning, an entire list was formed.  It's nothing huge, just a bunch of little awesomes to start off my week.  Let me share with you:

Fantasy Football draft number 1 was last night.  Yahoo really boned up the entire process, so we made a last minute switch to ESPN and it was fast, easy and still really fun.

Speaking of FF, my husband made the ultimate sacrifice last night.  He doesn't know that I know what he did though.  I had first pick with our Yahoo league, so like a cocky little brat, I went and put on my Adrian Peterson jersey.  When we switched to ESPN, I lost my first pick spot and was moved to 2nd.  Justin went first and even though I know he would have chosen AP in most situations, he left him for me.  It's the little things people.

I participated in the ice bucket challenge over the weekend and even though it was incredibly cold, it felt good to donate to a charity that I had never donated to before... and spend a while reading up on the cause itself.

I've had 3 cups of coffee already.

I had a very active weekend with some real life healthy food and activities... except for the crepe filled with cream cheese that I ate, but it was AH-MAZING.  OK, and the pizza & beer consumed last night during the draft.  We each got a Fitbit last week and then clocked in 23,000 steps on Saturday wandering the city.  I love being called a champ.

I woke up early this morning and got my Monday AM reports done.  They are usually really hard to get through on Mondays because my emails start up at about 8:30.  I was done well before 8:30 today and it made me feel like I was already winning Monday.

Because I got so much work done in the early AM hours, I was able to escape my apartment to run to the pet store and Trader Joe's.  Errands done before noon.  Awesome.

Bought myself flowers and sea salt brownies.

The Emmy's are on tonight which means I will probably discover my next Netflix binge and I get to spend a couple hours loving Seth Meyers more than I already do.

The first thing I read on the internet this morning was Steph's post about Chasing Silver Linings and it was fantastic.

Plus, this week is full of fun.  Our anniversary is on Saturday, my mom is coming to town this weekend, we have a day trip planned to Newport, RI and possible one more to the shore, and I'm finally spending an entire week in my own bed.  Ahhhh.

Tell me, what is awesome in your world this morning?


  1. Woah woah, look at you! Up and at em Monday morning, taking the world by storm, and making shit happen!
    Your voice is NOTHING like I thought it would be, I love hearing the speaking voices of bloggers. Makes you seem more like a "real life" friend!
    Totally forgot about the Emmy's tonight.
    I have spent the morning making two gourmet dinners to bring to two of my best friends who are going through tough times right now. Just call me Chef Boyardee! <3
    Happy Monday, Steph

  2. I don't know whether to feel jealous or inspired by all those steps! Probably a little of both! Amen to the Emmys being on! maybe that will help make up for the shit fest that was the VMAs last night! ugh!

  3. That is a whole lot of awesome! And you have one very kind husband- I'm not sure if I would let AP go given the chance! Sea salt brownies, getting shit done, and lots of fun times coming up- definitely a great way to start the week!

  4. Hooray for Monday morning positivity! I'm feeling similar today too and I think the beautiful weather has a lot to do with it! Every year I say I'm going to join a Fantasy Football league, but I never do! I can't wait to hear about your trip to Newport! It's on my list of places to visit one day :) And you totally have me wanting to get a fitbit- I want to start counting my steps, and it seems like that's the best way to go?

  5. Holy crap best Monday post on the internets. So much good going on.

    How awesome of Justin to let you have your player and not say a thing about it.

    Busting stuff out and being productive makes me feel so awesome, I don't know why I don't get up earlier more.

    You go on the ice bucket challenge! Part of me avoided it because of my voice when it's recorded. I hate it. hahaha. I did donate and enjoyed knowing more about ALS and how little they raise for the vast amount they have to do.

    Thanks for the shout out!

    I'm annoyed the Emmys are on on a Monday. I've been at the shore all weekend and need to get stuff done.

  6. I wish I'd read this earlier - I could have used some optimism this morning. Way to make the most of your Monday!

  7. ESPN's systems are much, MUCH easier to use than yahoo. You'd think a site that had been around so long could get their act together, but nooope!

  8. Sea salt brownies?! That sounds delicious!!!

  9. Ummm love the positive Monday! Love the flowers and I need to tell Colin the story about Justin to show him what real love is.

  10. Hope your draft picks do well! My husband drafts on Saturday. I have no idea how any of it works - nor do I know how football works in and of itself lol.

  11. I've been such a blog reading slacker... Loved following you through your road trip! Our fantasy draft is this weekend. I finished last last year so I should be picking first this year.
