Mondays Don't Suck

I am dedicating today's post to the person who found my blog by searching "Monday's don't suck". I got a little chuckle out of that one. I am usually Debbie Downer about all Mondays, but today I am not going to hate on it too bad. 

This weekend we finished up basketball season. Since Mini plays softball year round, it really made basketball seem like it went by in a blink. After the game {which we won} they had a little pizza party and received their trophies and medals. 

Since mini went to her dad's house after the party, we headed to do a little shopping and pick up some boxes from storage. I swear it will take us a year to finally get all our stuff in one place and settled. Anyways, I found my Operation Red Bikini bikini this weekend. 
I love all the fringe I started seeing a the end of last season, and I knew I wanted to find something fringe. I didn't want to break the bank though because I have a lot of swimsuits to wear as soon as I get back to my goal "shape" (I don't care what the lbs are as long as the shape is right). And what was the first thing I saw when I walked into Target....
It practically called my name. I left Jeremy standing at the front asking "do we need a cart?" It was what I wanted but I have a top the exact same color (it's really more cantaloupe orange in person) and that top is straight across like this one but without the fringe. I tried to talk myself out of it while I was looking for a different color. No other colors and I'm going to pretend like I didn't see the green one online just now. So there it is. My goal. 

Coincidentally, I also left Target with another little purchase....
Sunday I picked up two of my nieces to come visit while my sis and BIL went to a funeral about 4 hours away. My oldest niece is an absolute mess! She is hilarious and I so wanted to record her but I always missed the best opportunities. Plus she gets distracted when there's a camera in her face. By the end of the night I was calling her a drama queen. That's what she gets for calling me Big Julanne....yep. She calls me by my baby sister's name only I'm the "BIG" version. I'm pretty sure she is never coming back to my house because Aunt Big Julanne makes her eat all of her food. She tried pawning snacks off on her sister, but homegirl wasn't having any of that. I think by the end of the night we called it even though. She has accepted the drama queen nickname for now. Maybe she will like Diva better :) 
My sweet niece Diva! The first one to make me an aunt, even if it's a BIG one
Once the girls headed home for the night, I tried to fight sleep but it was impossible. Low key-ish weekend but I'm looking forward to another busy week. We are off to watch a dunk show by the Memphis Grizzlies tonight for the final basketball celebration. 

Anyone else have a Monday that didn't suck?
