Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a good weekend.  Mine was super productive, which was really nice.  While our (St. Louis area) shelter in place didn't technically start until today, I have pretty much been doing that all week.  With absolutely no plans and no places to go, it was the perfect time to get things done.   

I was ready to sign off for the weekend when 4:00 came around Friday afternoon.  I settled on the couch for an evening of pizza, Bon & Viv Black Cherry and Rosemary seltzers and Chicago Fire.  I recently discovered a good frozen deep dish pizza.  It not quite as good as Lou Malnati's, but it's the best I have found in St. Louis. 

I was up crazy late (for me) on Friday - I think it was my mid afternoon cup of coffee - and ended up sleeping in Saturday.  My big plans for the weekend were to do a thorough house cleaning, and I started on that shortly after I got up.  I also did some dry cleaning at home, too.  I discovered Dryel awhile ago, and love it.  It's great for my nicer clothes, but I also use it for my dry clean only coats at the end of the season.  Even though we are still getting a little bit of winter weather, I knew I wouldn't be needing my nicer coats for the foreseeable future, so it was the perfect time to get them cleaned, and hung up until next season.  My black coat is looking a little worn, and I am thinking it might be time for a new one come winter.  Like most people, I am still trying to support some of the local restaurants by utilizing curbside pick up, and did just that for lunch.  Pi Pizza has the most delicious hummus app, with yummy pizza crust points for dipping, and a really good BLT salad.  Later in the evening I start to work on reorganizing my pantry.  A chore like that definitely is helped by a glass of wine and the Chicago station on Pandora!

Sunday morning was nice and slow.  I had a cup of coffee while watching a recorded episode of The Pioneer Woman, which is pretty much one of my favorite ways to spend a slow morning.  Afterwards I got to it and finished up what I hadn't done cleaning wise the day before.  Our weather reverted back to winter, snowing in the morning.  It was really pretty coming down, but then by mid afternoon it was all gone.  I did a little baking, making a batch the my favorite 'one banana' banana bread muffin tops.  And now I am here, typing up this post.

Not an exciting weekend in the least bit, but it was really nice to get everything clean and to do a few other little projects, like the pantry.  I have a feeling most weekends are going to look like this one!

Linking up with Lindsay.
