Well hello there, Mr. Long Weekend!

I’ll be taking advantage of you.  But in the non-naughty way. This time.

I plan to:

Talk about you to all my friends.  About how I’ve needed you so badly lately.

Eat many, many gluttonous foods in celebration of you. 


Run after my sunburnt children. 

Dry my lake hair in the sun so it’s nice and curly. 


Wear aviator glasses. 

Sing whatever comes to mind.  As loudly as I can.  And annoy Travis by rhyming “truck” with “truck.”

Jet ski on Monday, because you gave me that extra day and Mr. Long Weekend, you deserve a nice ski in your honor.

Eat watermelon with salt.


Film a #chobanipowered commercial (maybe on jet skis, maybe on not jet skis) (<-what are not jet skis?)

Look at my toes and wish I’d gotten a pedicure.

Tickle Clara until she can hardly breath from all the laughing.


Join Henry in throwing rocks.  At dogs.  And at people.

Relish the fact that because of you, I get to kiss my Travis in the middle of a Monday.


Thank you, Mr. Long Weekend.

Please come again real soon.


QUESTION:  How are YOU enjoying Mr. Long Weekend??

P.S.  Don’t forget to enter the NatureBox giveaway!  Ends tomorrow night.  And come back MONDAY for Part II of Travis’ guest post (Part I)!

    Mr. Longweekend is definitely my friend, however at this point in my life…I don’t really get weekends off. I worked Saturday at the Farmer’s Market all day (almost died in the heat) and work Monday evening. BUT I do get to hang out with the BF Sunday evening and Monday during the day after a WEEK of him being out of town!! Excited about that!

    Love your curly hair btw! My hair is wavy or curly depending on the weather, my shampoo and/or its mood. Yep, my hair has moods. ;-)

    Oh how I love the long weekends! Sitting here on a Saturday night so happy I still get TWO more days! And I love your hair like that! Looks so cute with the beachy waves! :)
    Enjoy your extra day!!!

    I guess it’s a southern thing to eat salt on watermelon? I LOVE salt on mine (well I like salt on all of my fruit) but so many people from other areas act like they’ve never heard of it! (but these are probably the same ones who don’t know you MUST eat coleslaw ON the barbeque sandwich, lol!) Can’t wait to see the Cho’mmercial!
    Sounds like a great Memorial Day weekend – I hope to at least find a good watermelon, rest, and remember those who died in our Nation’s service.
