It’s Thursday, Do You Have Your Weekend Planned?

My husband and I love the weekends. This is our time together to play and have fun. We love the outdoors and taking our pooches with us when we go.

I am a planner. I like to have my week planned out and then I like to have a plan for the weekend. I get all my housecleaning, grocery shopping and laundry done on Thursdays and Fridays so I don’t have to think about it on the weekend.

We decided yesterday after going on a fantastic hike, to plan out our whole summer with plans “A” and “B” for the weekend. Plan “A” will be our first choice, plan “B” will be the back up plan. We want to be out and about when ever we can.

If you plan your weekends ahead of time it can really create excitement as you look towards the weekend. Applesauce_ready
