Good morning and happy Monday, friends! :)
This rainy weather is actually exactly what I needed to wake up to after the beautiful weekend we just had. Although I wore sunscreen all weekend (pinky promise!!), I’m a little sunburned and ready to be productive inside today.
Last night, I was watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians (don’t judge), and Scott mentioned that he always feels like he needs to go out and socialize with people because he has F.O.M.O.
Fear Of Missing Out.
That made me think. Yes… something about the Kardashians actually made me use my brain. This past weekend was spent in the sun with my husband. Not friends, not family… just me and Bobby.
Saturday we woke up early, packed some snacks, and headed down to the beach.
After the beach, we stopped for a cocktail and some snacks before heading back to Hoboken (crossing things off my Summer Bucket List already!!).
Sunday morning we got up early, went to church, got a great workout in, and decided we couldn’t waste another beautiful day indoors. We headed to the Pier for some more sun and relaxation!
After we’d had our fill of Vitamin D for the weekend, we stopped for an early dinner before heading home for some couch-time.
A year or two ago, this weekend probably would have given me anxiety.
“What are my friends doing?”
“Am I missing out on something fun?”
“They are probably having such a great time together and I should be there.”
“What if something really funny happens and I’m not there to see it??”
Or, as Scott Disick puts it…. F.O.M.O.
Up until recently, I had F.O.M.O., and I had it bad. Any time people were getting together, I needed to be there. I didn’t want to miss out on the fun!
This weekend I knew some friends were getting together though. I had the option to join them… but the truth was, I didn’t want to. I love my friends more than life itself, and Bobby and I are very social people, but we needed downtime. We needed to have no plans.
We needed a whole weekend to ourselves to do whatever we wanted… which included a whole lot of awesome quality time with each other.
It was the perfect weekend with my amazing husband, and not once did I have any inkling of F.O.M.O.
Dare I say…. I’m cured?
Do you (or did you ever) suffer from F.O.M.O??
How did you spend your weekend?
Does anyone else kinda like Scott this season? In the past, I couldn’t stand him, but recently he cracks me up.
