Labor (Free) Day (…or three)

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I cannot believe it’s Tuesday.  OR that I start classes again today.  This is not real life!  Okay, enough ranting.  Want to know what I did (and didn’t do) this weekend? Well I’m telling you anyway.

I spent a full 24+ hours away from my computer! I didn’t quite make it technology-free (still checked my phone), but I was pretty proud of myself for this.

I went on a 20 mile bike ride through Indiana with my mom – and we got caught in the rain.

After one beach day gone due to rain threats (the weather people were WRONG), I had my heart set on the beach.  Don’t ever let anyone tell you Indiana beaches aren’t real.  This is the best beach ever.

Toes in the (chilly) water.  And a walk on the wet sand – my pedicure.

I did a bit of this.

And was insanely jealous of this guy.  I love windsurfing, and it’s been years since I’ve had a chance to go (since my summer camp days!)

I mean come on, that is a pretty awesome view.

On the non-beach day, we hit up the outlet mall for a day of shopping!

Much-needed sports bras (this is one of 2 that actually have enough support for me), buy one get one 1/2 off!

Half price BCBG belt! I fell in love with this belt, so worth it – I can’t wait to wear it!

And a really awesome, practical (marked down!) Columbia rain coat – because I don’t own a raincoat.  I should have taken a picture of me in it, as it looks a lot better on.

I also went to a barbecue sunday night.  And hung out with the parents and doggy.  I know, I’m a fun one – oh well, a weekend of not much was exactly what I needed to get myself in the mood for school

Yesterday morning we drove back to Chicago,  I packed up all my fall clothes, and headed back to NYC.

Now, time to go shower and change in time for class!

How was your labor day weekend?

Do you enjoy relaxing weekends with not much to do?

    I used to windsurf at summer camp too! Except I hated it – I could never stay on the board for very long haha. 😛 I was more of a canoeing and sailing girl!

    Also I love that rain jacket!

    I spent my weekend moving back to my apartment at school and doing a massive clean of it. Not very exciting, but it had to get done. 😛

    Have a great first day of classes!

    What a perfect weekend! It’s been far too long since I’ve completely unplugged from my computer; I’d love for that to happen soon (although with a new semester underway, I’m thinking it won’t happen for awhile!)

    I’ve actually never been windsurfing, but I’d love to try it! And you’re right–the Indiana beaches are gorgeous!

    I hope your first day of classes went well today! <3
