Mondays...They Are All The Same

Monday, November 14, 2011

Did you all have a fabulous weekend? I was delighted to spend Friday night with friends, but mostly surrounded with the family for the rest of my time away--weekends like this just don't come around nearly as often as I'd like.
Christmas Village was a crazy fest! There were so many more people than usual, and apparently this was the event's most successful year yet. We were patient in waiting our turn and kindly saying "excuse me" when people gave us a little push, and in turn scored some fun goodies. I bought a holiday burlap nutcracker sign for our front door, a few scarves, the most amazing pumpkin butter, and some fabulous treats for Caroline--her first Wubbanub!

Mom {AKA Mimi} spoiled her rotten with her first monogrammed bloomers and bib, a bib/burp cloth set with her name, and the most adorable smocked dress for next Christmas...cannot wait to show them off once I take some pictures. Afterwards, I met the friends at Chago's to celebrate Candice's 29th birthday! Such a fun time catching up and I think the birthday girl had a wonderful evening out on the town. 
Saturday morning, Jeff went to work on a home project and I went to do more Christmas shopping...stocked up on my wrapping necessities for this year's theme for our presents and then got all dressed up for a night on the town with my hubby. 
Kayne Prime was absolutely AMAZING and the best food we have had in a long time...the atmosphere is uber trendy and I was very much impressed with the entire experience--if you go, you simply MUST try the bacon appetizer served with maple cotton candy and the corn brulee for a side dish...heaven in your mouth I tell you! And of course, we had to dig into a little dessert which substitutes quite nicely for alcohol...the banana bread with ice cream was out of this world!
Sunday morning, we headed to church and then met the family at Mere Bulle's to celebrate Mom. Then we were off to do some bambino shopping...poor hubby got a little overwhelmed, but we picked out the stroller--huge progress I tell you! After endless amounts of research online, polling other mom friends, and doing some trial runs in stores for convenience, weight, practicality, and such, we decided to go with the Britax B Ready and I am SO excited! Just love this, when did I officially get so OLD. 
The rest of the afternoon was spent at the gym, grocery store, cooking dinner, doing laundry, and then starting my holiday decorating. My goal is to do 1 box/tub a night so I should have it done by Christmas Eve ;)


  1. The "Wubbanub" was a HUGE hit and the talk among all of the mommys at the most recent baby shower I went to!

  9. Sounds like a delightful weekend. You blog ladies don't mess around when it comes to getting prepared for the holidays. I'm so much further behind than you all.

    Babies have a tendency to make you old quick. Mine did anyway.

    Have a good week friend :0

  10. Sounds like a great weekend! I need to pick out a stroller too - which car seat are you getting to go with the B Ready?
