Monday Saturdays are the best!

Happy Saturday to me...Happy Monday to all the rest of you! Unless of course you're also a nurse and worked this weekend! Then YEAH for Monday Saturdays!!!

I don't love working weekends. BUT- I do love having days off during the week.

And in all honesty, working weekends can have its advantages (which I'm sure I've mentioned before here...that, or I'm having some weird blogging deja vu). Weekends are MUCH quieter at the hospital, much less people to put up with, and just a more relaxed feel.

And, working weekends is good for my diet. I pack my lunch the night before, and whatever I take to work I eat. Since what I pack is healthy, what I eat is healthy! Pretty simple. It's the other weekends that we have to worry about...ugh!

Anyways, having Monday's off every once in awhile is nice. It makes running errands much quicker. There are certainly way less people at the grocery store on a Monday morning vs a Saturday morning.

Monday Saturdays also allow me to have catch-up coffee dates with other Nurse Practitioner friends which is fun and much needed!

AND Monday's are 25% off my favorite thrift store, so even better!! I went in to get a few (hopefully) dress shirts for work now that I can't wear scrubs anymore...or at least won't be able to once I start...and walked out with all of this:
For just $33!! Holla! That's right...while I only came away with one shirt and one dress for work, I also got a black pair of leggings, a GA Bulldogs comfy baseball tee, 2 summer dresses, pair of board shorts, tank top, 3 belts, 2 necklaces, and a decorative "L" (which I will paint to match our decor!).

Yes, once again I LOVE thrifting. And I love my Monday Saturdays!!

Hope you had a great weekend...and if you're a nurse who worked this weekend, then I hope you enjoy your weekday weekend as much as I am!


  1. I used to work an 8-5 job not too long ago. Swallowing the pill of nursing hours has been difficult to adjust to, but in the end it'll be worth it. Thanks for checking out my blog, and I'm glad you had a good day off.
