When you check your iPhone weather forecast and see 75 degrees and sunshine emojis, you know its time to make it a BIG weekend . . . basically the kind that leaves you wanting another weekend just to recoup. I have to admit, it hasn’t been the worst weekend but I am ready to break out the shorts (paired with a sweatshirt of course) and do everything on this list. I’ll leave the grocery shopping and house cleaning for a cold dreary Tuesday and since its Texas, we can pretty much bet that our 75 degree Sunday will only last until sundown.
Go seize the weekend y’all!
