Weekend Highlights

Woohoo--last week of work before the holidays and 2 full, glorious weeks off! 
But before we get there, let's recap the weekend shall we?

My weekend highlights included:

-Friday night holiday party with some friends from work (MG is not pictured because he and the other guys were off talking about house stuff and whatever else boys talk about lol--so glad he gets along with my friends' husbands and boyfriends so easily tho!)

-A hubby-made breakfast, both mornings (he's the best)

-MG's work party Saturday afternoon where I got to meet a lot of the people who are in his new office (now I have faces to put with the names that I hear)--didn't take any pictures because I'm a bad blogger

-Wore my cute Toms booties and got several compliments ;)

-The family who rented our house from us before we moved in came by for a bit and we got to see their super cute girls who loved up on Cooper. They got to see all the stuff we've done to the house since the last time they came over and they were impressed :)

-Tried to have dinner at the newly opened YardHouse but the wait was insane #maybenexttime

-Sleeping in both mornings of the weekend

-Cooper had a boo-boo on his paw so he got a festive red wrap so he'd stop licking at it
#holidaypup ? lol
yes his leg is actually that skinny under all that fur lol
-Our realtor that we worked with for our house dropped off a pretty wreath for us

-Ran errands, picked up some last minute Christmas gifts for family (and splurged on these yummies):

-MG put part of his birthday gift to use making his much-desired Moscow Mule (it was delicious!)

-Watched National Lampoons Christmas Vacation

-Finished the book Wedding Night (review to come), and started reading The Andy Cohen Diaries immediately after.
-Watched the final episode of Newsroom. Bummed it's over.

I wanted to take a moment and pay my respect to the children and teachers who lost their lives two years ago yesterday at Sandy Hook. 
Please appreciate each and every day that you have, and make the most of your every-days. And don't forget these sweet faces. My thoughts and prayers go out to each of these innocent kiddos, the teachers who lost their lives protecting these little souls, and the families of all.
Focus on what's important this holiday season--family, love and friendship!


  1. Sounds like you had a great weekend girl!!! Im interested to hear what you think of Andy Cohen's book - I'm sure it's going to be hilarious!! I don't think I would have stopped eating those milanos - my weakness for sure!! How nice of your realtor to bring by that wreath - adding more cheer to your home! :) Hope you have a great Monday girl!! xo, Biana

  2. those cookies look AWESOME!
    Poor Cooper (I just wrote poor cookie...cookie on the brain)
    that was nice of your realtor.
    and it's awesome you guys get along so well with your Renters!

  3. Poor Cooper. He looks so cute in his little red wrap though. Those milanos look delicious .

  4. Those cookies, YUM! I think I need them, ha! What a great weekend!! I always love it when my hubs makes breakfast... we lucked out with amazing men!

  5. Well this weekend seemed fabulous and you looked gorgeous! Red is your color for sure! (and perfect for holidays of course!) muah! xoxo

  6. Ah poor Coop and his paw. I bet the old owners were like wtf? our house looks so good now! I feel ya on the new restaurant...a cheesekcake factory opened a block from our house and i wanted it so much saturday and the wait was over an hour... i was too hungry.

  7. Isn't it so nice when you can sleep in both mornings!

  8. I bet that Andy Cohen book is going to be good. I loved his first one! So funny! Come link up with me today!

  9. OMG Milano's has peppermint slices?!!! I'll be making my way to grocery store during my lunch hour today. :)

  10. How are those Milano slices?! We've tried ones with toffee and they are so delicious. I really can't believe it's been 2 years since Newtown. Before I moved to SC, I lived about an hour from there and did some programming at their schools - it really does make you think about your life so differently.

  11. The moscow mules look so fun! I've been wanting to try one out. I like to use Tito's vodka as well for my martinis.

  12. I watched NL Christmas Vacation too! CLASSIC!

    And - what an amazing weekend you had. :)

  13. That was so sweet of your realtor to drop off a wreath for you! Milano cookies are my fave. :)

  14. I'm not allowed to buy those MIlano b/c I eat them all in a day...by myself. It's a real bummer to lack total self control :)
    And we have a Yardhouse in ATL - I wonder if it's the same?

    And I love that you mentioned the Sandy Hook kids. I feel like a lot of the time we rally around a tragedy so hard and then forget about it. <3

    Happy two weeks off!!

  15. What a great weekend! Moscow mules, work parties, hubby made breakfast and Christmas Vacation, not to mention two weeks of your own Christmas vacation upcoming? All of it is so good! =)

  16. awww, coop and his poor little paw, so cute! hope its better... and i think i totally need to try those cookies... yum!

  17. Which Tom's booties do you have?? I asked for some for Christmas =) Also, I saw this post over the weekend and then went grocery shopping and was SO sad they didn't have those Milano's!

  18. Those cookies look sooo yummy!! And what a sweet thing for the realtor to drop off that wreath!! #customerserviceFTW :)


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