You know, it never hurts to ask for things. The Friday before memorial day, like every other Friday before a holiday weekend, I was scheduled to be the only person in my office. I suggested to my boss that we ask if we could close early that day, he did, and we were allowed to! It was a great start to "The Great Staycation" - our name for Memorial Day weekend this year.
I kept it simple on the clothing front, wearing just a tee with a jersey skirt and some borrowed shoes from my roommate to work. After work I cleaned house a bit, then hit the pool with Josh and Jenny and pretty much spent the entire weekend with her!
I totally suggest picking a weekend, calling it a staycation, and hyping it up as such. We were able to really enjoy ourselves without worrying about the day-to-day stuff, like errands, cleaning, laundry, that can sometimes overtake your time off from work.
