Weekend Recap

The weekend is over and we have officially approached Christmas week! Can you believe it?!
This last weekend was fun.  Friday evening my husband and I looked at Christmas lights near my parents house.  The houses around the lake always decorate beautifully, and each street has a theme.

 After walking around and looking at the lights, we came home and watched a few Christmas movies with the fireplace on!

Saturday my husband went golfing so I worked on orders.  When he got home, we got ready to have dinner at my favorite Japanese Steakhouse. I wish I got more photos, but I was having too much fun! After dinner we went out on the town!

Sunday we spent the day relaxing and recouping from the night prior.  We went to my parents house to go out to dinner at Yardhouse, which was super yummy, but then we came home and relaxed some more.  We kept it pretty low key.   

I still can't believe Christmas is just a few days away.  What are your favorite Christmas Traditions?

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday, it's time for my Weekend Recap! This weekend was a major #Hustle weekend for me.  Since we are redoing my office this coming Friday, I knew I had to push orders out to give myself time to close shop and get everything that is now in my office out. 

I spent the evening on Friday helping my girlfriend create a gift for someone whose child died at 38 weeks in the womb.  She wanted to make something she would cherish and that would be meaningful for her. So we created this image and placed it on a tile.  This is what the end result was:

She was super happy with the result and it was her first time making anything like this for someone! I love it!

Saturday day I woke up bright and early to hustle out my Etsy orders.  I ended up having over 22 orders made and shipped out.  My mom was super helpful and came over to help me package all the orders!

Does This Ring Make Me Look Engaged?

We made it to the post office right before they closed to ship these babies off! I was exhausted.  When I got home, I thought I would have time to nap, but the hubby told me to start getting ready for an earlier dinner.   So that is what I did. 

We went to Claim Jumper and I ordered the steak and shrimp. It was so good!  They also have my favorite dessert Pumpkin Cheese Pie.  It's basically a cheesecake with pumpkin.  I am so not a dessert person, but something about pumpkin spices things up!  We got home and had our friends come over to play some cards, dice and go in the spa.  We played this game called 3-man, and I ended up being stuck as three man pretty much the entire game.  So I was feeling pretty good by the end of the night. Before the guys got too buzzed we went to the store to pickup more alch and some snacks. 

We ended up going in the spa around 3 am, and cooked taquitos and cookies. We didn't go to bed till about 5 am. It was a LONG night.

Sunday we pretty much slept all day and were super lazy.  We finally got up and moving around 2:30 PM and I helped my friend make some decals for his ATV/buggy. It was a fun weekend, but I am exhausted!

How did you all spend your weekend?

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! This weekend seriously FLEW by!  
With my Birthday coming up (Tomorrow!), my friends and I went out to dinner Saturday evening to Saddle Ranch because I was craving some prime rib! It was so good! Of course they gave us the usual cotton candy afterwards too!

After dinner we went to one of my favorite country bars, but because I didn't know we were heading there, I didn't have the proper shoes.  I was able to go but I couldn't dance :(  So sad! We ended up making it a semi-early night than our usual nights out and got home by 1 am.

Sunday we woke up to head to our favorite all-you-can-eat brunch spot!  Unlimited mimosas filled our glasses and unlimited food on our plates.   We ended up hitting up a few of the bars downtown because I hadn't seen my friend in a while.  I kept it pretty mellow since I was driving and was a major grandma ordering an Iced tea at a bar. HAHA!
Overall it was a fun weekend, and I look forward to going to Oregon to see my bff next weekend!

Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!  We had an extremely busy weekend.  I had my good friend from High Schools wedding on Friday and then had a baby shower on Saturday.

We left early from work Friday to head out to wine country and try to beat the traffic.
Luckily we didn't hit too much traffic and made it early enough to get settled. It was so great to see old friends from High School that we haven't seen in a while. It was so great to reminisce. 

Saturday was my cousins baby shower. It was the cutest little theme at the cutest place.

I'm also sharing my wedding advice on The Knights Place today.

Weekend Recap

Hope you all had a great Weekend! I am co-hosting with Bella for our weekly Weekend Recap! 

I had a pretty eventful weekend for once! I had girls night on Friday and I don't even know where to begin with all the adventures we had.  It was too much fun! It's been a while since I have been out and about.  We ended up going to two different bars, and I didn't even drink that much but still ended up falling on the ground.  I swear, I have problems.  Of course a Del Taco run was needed at the end of the night too!

The next morning my girlfriend and I got breakfast at the cutest little place after I helped her and took photos of her business.  I ended up sleeping pretty much the whole rest of the day.  Pretty eventful.. I know.

Sunday was spent processing orders. I literally got 16 orders shipped out in one day. I was super proud of myself. (With the help of my mom too! Who was a doll and helped me package them.)  I came up with a few new designs that were added to the shop and was also asked to create a Designer inspired Cell phone charger Decal too! (Which is now listed in the shop for only $2!)

I literally did not eat all day Sunday. I was so busy I forgot to eat! So of course once dinner came around, I had a nice Prime Rib, Baked potato (With all the fixin's of course) and asparagus.  I had to!

How was your weekend? What did you do?! Link up with us!
