Weekend, 11.21.11

What a beautiful weekend it was! (For me!) How about for you?

Friday night, I saw Happy Feet 2 with a friend. (Such a CUTE movie...I highly recommend it!) Had me laughing & smiling for most, if not all, of the movie. Then my friend + I had a slumber party. (Seems like I'm having a lot of those lately..haha!)

Saturday morning, was my event for Baby Pickel - the 2nd Annual Gobble Trot. It was a great success! Was able to raise over $1,000 to purchase Thanksgiving food baskets for those in need. I can't wait to share the photos with you! As soon as I get them from the photographer, I will! Wednesday night, we'll be delivering the food baskets...can't wait!

Saturday night, I had a total "me night." I did a mud face mask, gave myself a pedicure and made this delicious soup:

YUM. Vegetable chicken soup. So healthy, so good!

Sunday, Vin + I went to church. After church, I took some family portrait-type of photos. Here is one from the day:

Such a little cutie pie...what a ham! Minus the husband being grumpy...it was fun!

Then Vin + I had date night...we went to a Japanese place for some delicious food. We haven't had a date night in quite a while. It was so...perfect.
He usually takes much better photos...haha...my camera's light is SO bright!

We must have had some spontaneity juice at the restaurant because then we randomly decided to see a movie - Breaking Dawn was the only one playing. I'm not a huge fan of it. I've seen the other 2 movies and read the first 2 books...then it just got too mushy gushy...unrealistic for me. I couldn't get into it. Neither of us were digging the movie...at all. The acting, I don't think, is that great. The actual lines from the movie were just...silly. I was bored...a lot. At least I can say I've seen it...I guess?

What a truly wonderful weekend! 

I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving. Here in FL, it's going to be hot. Which makes me sad. :( I want some cold weather for the holidays! 

I still haven't decided on a second desert. Nothing has really caught my eye. I'm making an apple pie since it is expected of me...wanted to do something different for a second desert...any ideas?

Love you all! Blessings to you! ox



  1. Loved reading this post.....felt like a happy weekend after all! :)


  2. My hubby and I had a date night on sat too! We went and watched Breaking dawn..Im a huge twilight fan and I love the gushy stuff. I have to say I didnt like this movie as much as the 3rd. The characters looked like they wore wigs. My hubby was bored through it too though :(
