Days off are blogging days. That’s how they are classified at our house. They are days I get up early, make Sam’s lunch and see him off to work. I often skip breakfast and spend the entire morning in bed with my laptop. I catch up on blogs, my Social Media channels, and any shows that may be on Netflix or Hulu. This week I am catching up and watching live New York Fashion Week.

I often work out on my days off, and am really looking forward to checking out the new Barre DVDs that I got my hands on! I do it all in the basement, or in my living room, where is more light.

Tuesdays are also Twitter chat days, and once a month it’s #FashionUnfold, while other days, it’s just random chats, usually British! But I love my UK blogger friends and talking to them. Twitter keeps me connected to the whole world.

Sometimes I have coffee dates with friends. Honey and Rye has been on my list for a while now. But no one wants to go there with me! Maybe you? Sometimes I go shopping and buy things, but sometimes I don’t need anything.

This week I have hope. This Tuesday, after having checked out the weather for the next 10 days, I saw something promising in the forecast – 35F! That is above and beyond what I’ve been hoping for for many weeks now, along with thousands of others here in the North Pole Minnesota.

Tuesdays are also my days to take pictures. There are a lot of new additions to my wardrobe that need to be styled, worn, photographed. I do dishes and laundry in between. The bathroom needs cleaning too.

Some nights I am lucky and we go get Papa Murphy’s for dinner, sometimes we have left overs. But either way, I am always so happy when Sam comes home!

What are your days off like?

  1. I’m job-hunting, so I’m off every day! I spend the day compulsively checking the job boards, my cell phone for messages, my email, and looking for typos in my resume. I’m in Mpls and so thrilled that this sub-zero temp stuff seems to be over – I will be taking my two dog boys to the dog park now that it’s warmed up. Yes, really cute outfit!!!

      Good luck on your job hunt! Which field are you in?

  2. I love these photos, there is such pretty light in this room! Your days off do sound lovely. My days off are spent hanging out with my son and husband since we’re lucky enough to have the weekends off together. I am so pumped about the upcoming warmer (relatively!) weather too! We’re supposedly getting up to 38 tomorrow! Amazing.

      That’s awesome! Today was a high of 21 here and I swear it felt like above freezing! I guess my perception of what’s warm has changed!

  3. Love the look! Your day off sounds nice! 🙂 Mine usually just involves cleaning, blogging, and lesson planning. 😛

  4. Sounds lovely. I often wish I had just one day off a week to get those types of things done when there is no one else in the house.

    • BeingZhenya says:

      It’s really nice to be all by myself once a week, definitely a plus!

  5. i love your day off plan and your look! That sweater is a great color/pattern!
    My days off look about the same as yours!! xo
