This past weekend was one of those great weekends where you have just the right amount of balance between activities and down time, productivity and relaxation. And come this morning, I was feeling very refreshed, ready to tackle the week.

This week...

+ As always, I'm saying that I'm going to eat healthy and work out. I find that each week, I start with the best intentions and somehow life always seems to get in the way. I'm hoping I can actually follow through though. Hey, I did this week with the blog, there's hope!

+ I'm hoping to share a few recipes I made over the weekend including yummy pasta salads and rhubarb apple sauce . I know, madness, more than 3 blog posts in a week? We'll see!

+ I want to finish Mansfield Park, which I think may be Austen's slowest novels. Don't get me wrong, I love all things Austen but this one just takes forever to get to the plot line dilly-dallying all along the way. I'm also hoping to start Jane Green and Emily Giffin's newest novels. Does anyone else have any great books their planing to read this summer?

+ I've declared myself OFF online shopping. It's a serious problem of mine and one I really need to get under wraps so I'm forcing myself that if I really want something, I need to get off my butt and go get it. That means no more Gilt, Rue la la, Shopbop or Etsy. Yes, I'm calling an intervention on myself.

+ I'm heading to Dim Sum brunch with an old co-worker to an old client and cannot wait to catch up and dig into many yummy new items.

+ Speaking of old clients, I'm also FINALLY getting a haircut, which is desperately needed. My hair is just at that point where it's falling beyond flat, and a bit too far down my back. And it is the beginning of a summer filled with far too many weddings.

+ Of late, I've been really into doing crosswords and I plan to tackle at least one or two.

+ I'm really digging the haircut above but not sure I can handle that short of hair right now. Maybe in the fall though!

+ I've been re-watching a season of Royal Pains that I missed in anticipation of the return of summer shows, including Suits, Royal Pains, Franklyn & Bash and, of course, the Bachelorette. Are there any summer shows you cant miss?
