Weekend Recap

This weekend wasn't too crazy, which was just what I needed.

Friday my friend Crystal came with me to look at and choose linens for the wedding. After looking through a bunch, I chose this pewter color:
We'll get to see a mock up of the table at our tasting, so I can still make changes. I'm also going to see 3 other options at that time, too. But for right now, I think this silver will be fun, a little different, and help pop the purple color around the room, too.

After that, we hung out at my place for a bit, had a bottle some wine and caught up.

Saturday morning was the massage that I'd been looking forward to. It hurt, bc Im full of knots, but my massage therapist was good and really sweet. We ended up talking the whole time (which didn't take away from my "relaxation" since this massage was to work out knots, not to relax) and she even told me "I'm so glad to have met you today" after our conversation. She was so nice, and I have another appointment with her in 2 weeks. Woohoo!

I ran a few errands after that because the weather was supposed to be really icky on Sunday and I didn't want to be stranded at home with no food. 
The rest of the day was low key, cuddle time with Cooper, reading The Book Thief (really good so far, by the way), taking care of some cleaning around the house, and watching movies on tv like 13 Going on 30 and Something Borrowed.
Sunday the first snow came. And then icy rain/sleet. Which meant another day to snuggle on the couch, stay warm, watch tv and read. 

Here are a couple of scenes from the weekend:

Puppy, Christmas tree/lights...how does this get much better?
I did do something productive with myself and tried out the Zumba "game" I got for Xbox, and I LOVED it. It was so fun (I'm sure I looked like a total idiot, but that's ok) and I was sweating after just a few songs. Totally going to be doing that more often!

And, to top it all off, I got the greatest gift...school was cancelled today because of the icy conditions outside. So, another day ahead of relaxation for me! And I have a yummy meal cooking away in the crock pot for dinner tonight. Bliss!

Told ya it was a "low key" weekend. But I'm totally ok with it! Hope yours was fab!!

    The weather isn't the best, but it's pretty with all the snow. Enjoy your day off!

  2. Looks like a good weekend! Love the tree & the pup!

  3. the book thief is a great book! i loved it. well written, good story. i think i did a review on that one. I'm not sure about the movie tho.

    yay for snow day (for you)...i'm hoping my plane isn't delayed!

  4. SO jealous of your snow day. I was all ready for a work from home day and then my boss decided to come into work. Major bummer.

    And I looooooooooooove the color of the linens! So pretty!

  5. I love that linen color! It'll look awesome with the purple!!

  6. I was so bummed that we got nothing but cold rain! Hope you enjoy your snow day! :)

  7. Sounds like a pretty good weekend! We finally got rain in SoCal...of course on the day that I was moving! Your weekend cuddled up while it was cold outside sounds magical :)

    Thanks for linking up for MMG!

  8. I think that pewter color will look great! It will make your white plates and crystal glasses 'pop!' Love it! And lucky you with the long weekend - all we are getting down here is cold, yucky rain. I would definitely rather have some ice or snow so I could at least stay home, lol:)


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
