I am typing this at the end of the laziest, most useless, wonderful day. Seriously. No action today had any productive output outside of the fact that it was like chicken soup for my soul. But let's start this post on Thursday to begin a little weekend recap.
My weekend kinda started on Thursday night with a festive holiday happy hour with my coworkers. My company is moving offices and we all had to work remotely on Friday while they began the move. So though I did put out a lot of work fires on Friday per the usual, I was able to do it all while wearing my pajamas so it felt a bit lighter mentally speaking. And by the time happy hour rolled around and the work week closed-up shop, I was incredibly refreshed, relaxed and ready to get out of the house. Therefore, Jay and I moseyed to three different spots on a street near us for some libations, sustenance and atmosphere.

The next morning, we rose early and drank copious amounts of coffee as we geared up to go find our Christmas tree. I generally like to visit a u-cut farm to get a tree (mainly because there's usually goats there, eee) but I figured a lot in the city would be as good as it would get for our Xmas cheer this year. So we swooped up Jay's brother, put Chandler in a sweater and went to Clancy's Tree Farm in the Inner Sunset.
The place was super cute with trees of all shapes and sizes to choose from. We had decided on a smaller one this year and I'm really glad that we did because- SURPRISE, SF trees are (of course) insanely expensive in keeping with the theme of the city.
See that little guy Jay is holding? That's Archer, our 2015 tree. We were laughing at how tiny he was when we chose him. Usually we go for trees that are a little taller than me. Anyhoo, we were happy with him for this year and I assumed he'd be like 20 bucks or something? Seems about right for a tiny little weed of a tree.
Well - no. He was $50. $50 dollars for like the tiniest tree ever. I swear. This city never ceases to blow my mind with its legal robbery. But Archer was cute and perfect and we brought him back to the house and put on "Love Actually" while sampling some winter ale and putting up decorations. Later in the night, we all headed out for a bit of dancing and jubilation.
And now we're back at Sunday. A day that will live in
inFAMY. Morning began with my BIL & husband posted up on the couch as we started "Elf". As we watched that, I made a breakfast of cinnamon rolls and potatoes with onions. Yes, those don't quite go together but there were things we had on hand so it worked. That kicked-off a long day of relaxation. We watched two more movies, some shows, had Pho delivered, took a nap, admired the tree, took a long shower ... repeat, repeat.

It was just about the greatest, laziest day ever. And we all kept talking about how we never have days that are lazy to this extreme. Sure my Sundays are generally slower paced but I'm also cooking and doing laundry, etc. This day was about movies, coziness and just doing nothing. And it was pretty effing awesome.
And seeing how my girlfriend is in town this next weekend, I'm pretty sure a day of body rest was a nice little prequel.
Have a good Monday! I'm excited to be in my new office today!
