cable knits + weekend vibes + brunch + weekend style

Bubble Knit

Happy post Super Bowl Monday!

And speaking of the Super Bowl, did you know that today is one of the most popular days for people to take off (or call out "sick") from work? I heard on the news this morning that it's upwards of 13+ million people who don't show up for work...which is absolutely insane to me. 

Now, don't get me wrong, I love a good football game like the rest of them, but using a precious day off to nurse my hangover (or for those die hards who never continue celebrating) is definitely not something that I have done.

Or should I say, have not done yet, because as you all should never say never.

I did enjoy the game last night and some yummy food though - and boy was it a good (the food and the game in case you were wondering which I was referring to).

But instead of being at a party or bar like most years, I did so from the comfort of our couch in PJs, wrapped up in fur blanket with the dog and the husband.


Which, after the busy week and weekend, and a 90 minute cycle class earlier in the day, was a picture of perfection for me.

Speaking of busy; I don't know about you guys but January seriously flew by, as in I barely remember half of it, and it seems like just yesterday it was Christmas.


Work has been absolutely insane, our social calendar has been packed and our travel season hasn't even started yet. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE to be busy - but these past few weeks have kicked my arse.

And arse kicking weeks call for casual cozy knits and lazy weekend brunch with the husband complete with carbs & champagne...which is exactly what we did and it was exactly what I needed (post workout of course).

I hope you were able to relax & recharge this weekend...Monday's are dangerous.
