Weekend Fun

So, Monday!  It was a pretty busy weekend (well, with a certain amount of laziness on Saturday!).  Here's the short version:
  • Friday afternoon, I left work a little early and went to the outlet mall to do a little Christmas shopping.  I now have only 2 people left to shop for, and I know generally what I should buy them, so I'm feeling pretty good. 
  • Friday evening, John's office had their annual Christmas party.  We had a great time and stayed out entirely too late.
  • Saturday, I may have slept until noon.  It's hard to say.  Then I did pretty much nothing all day, except read.  I guess I did a little bit of laundry and cleaned the kitchen.  
  • Saturday evening, we went to see the new Hobbit movie.   I liked it more than the first one.  It does deviate from the book quite a bit, but I thought the book was kind of boring, so I'm not going to complain too much.  Plus it's been about 5 years since I read the book, so I don't remember the details. 
  • Sunday was church, lunch, gym, church, and then we went over to our friends' apartment.  They recently moved to a cool apartment downtown and I hadn't been there yet.  It was fun to see their place and get to hang out!
Anyway, it's going to be another busy week, and then next week is Christmas!  So excited!!!  I need to get serious about wrapping all these presents that are stacking up. 

Oh, and these pictures are from a few weeks ago - now our backyard is covered in snow.

  1. This dress looks great with your boots and tights! I'm glad you had a fun weekend. I haven't even started wrapping presents!

  2. I love that dress! And the color (magenta? pink?) looks so good on you!

  3. I'm glad to hear you liked the Hobbit (pt 2). We've been planning on going for so long, but then my brother-in-law said that they added so much it was just "meh". I've never read the book, so I wouldn't know one way or another. BTW, I like your weekend recaps!

  4. Cute! I love the outfit so much. You look darling. Sounds like you had a great weekend! I like your weekend recaps as well :) I may borrow the idea myself!
