Monday Listicles - The Weekend

This week's Monday Listicles theme is things to do on the weekend. Our weekends are generally pretty mellow, so here's a list of some regular things we do and some things I wish we'd do more. So, in no particular order...

10 Things to Do during the Weekend


1. Stay up way too late
We don't do this every weekend, but this past weekend we were up until 3am Sat morning. Just talking about random things

2. Sleep in way too late
When Sallie is feeling generous. She likes her breakfast at a very early hour and isn't too keen on pushing that back. But sometimes I convince her to sleep a bit later.

3. Be a tourist in our own town
Of course we live in a pretty great town to do this. This weekend we went to the Stratosphere.

4. Go for a run
I try to get out for a run at least once every weekend.

5. Make a fun breakfast
Pancakes, french toast, omelettes. Not all at the same time.

6. Go for a bike ride or for a hike
We don't do this nearly as often as I'd like, but one of these weekends we'll do it!

7. ROAD TRIP!
Again, we have yet to do this since moving to Vegas, but sometime this year, I hope we take a few short road trips. LA, San Diego, Phoenix, Grand Canyon are a few of the places I'd love to go.

8. Relax and do nothing
This is how most of my weekends actually go. Or I get caught up on stuff around the house, like cleaning, organizing or doing laundry.

9. Marathon - movies or TV
Now, this is something that we'll frequently do - but we haven't for awhile.

10. NAP
Which includes lots of Sallie snuggle time. Some of my favorite moments are snuggling with her.

  1. This is a great list! I think weekends are also a great time to disconnect from technology... live like it's 1999 before we were all attached to our phones, computers, etc. :)

    1. Ah. 1999. :)
      Actually, I need the weekends usually just to get even remotely caught up with social media. :-/

    1. Thanks, Amber! Even if I didn't live in Vegas, it would be fun to play tourist in whatever town I lived in. Though Vegas does make it extremely easy.

  6. Hey Clarinda! I'm part of your SITS tribe. I really like your list of things to do on the weekend. My husband and I love to sleep in and have tv marathons. I also like to get my long runs in on the weekend. Looking forward to to reading more of your blog.

    1. Thanks, Beth, and welcome to my blog. TV marathons are so fun. The only kind of marathon my husband will probably ever do. :)

  9. I really miss those nights when the Husband and I would stay up super late drinking wine and just talking about nothing and everything at the same time. Sounds like you've got some great weekend activities at your house!
