Top 3 Tips for Making the Best of the Weekend

July 20, 2015

Monday morning and I am already thinking well Friday is around the corner. I used to be the person that showed up to work and they would say “How was your weekend?” and I would get a little annoyed because I felt like I didn’t get the most out of it…it was over before I had the chance to enjoy it.IMG_0315

I can’t take credit to myself for coming out of this rut, I surround myself with adventurous people that always know something fun to do or are amazing company. Your weekend is like a party, it’s all about who you invite, so that brings me to #1.

1. You are as fun as the company you keep!

It is true, you want to surround yourself with people that will push you out of your comfort zone, challenge you to try some thing new whether it is a sport or new cocktail those experiences are a lot more fun.

2. Wanderlust.

Do not over plan your weekend. Sometimes you need to roam and explore. That is how you discover new restaurants before everyone else and have the best stories.


3. Cherish your Time.

Remember the weekend is the time you do what you want to do, dont feel this time up with too many chores or obligations. While there will be things you must do remember to embrace this time to recharge and have fun!

    great dress and super cool sunglasses! Number 2 is exactly what I do. Planning is great, but sometimes you’ve got to get up and just go. Those are the best experiences πŸ™‚

  48. You are so right, you are as fun as the company you keep. I think people forget that sometimes other peoples attitudes may affect your own. Which is why it’s good to hang out people who have the same attitude towards life as you do. Great tips.
