Good morning, Friends!
I hope you had a great weekend! Ours was pretty good -- and over too fast, as usual :)
Here's a look at what we got up to these past few days!
Friday evening I had a gig, so the Mr came to meet me afterwards and we had a late date night! We just did drinks & snacks at our neighborhood pub, but it was the perfect way to catch up after not really seeing each other all day, and a fun way to end the day!
Since we were out late Friday night (late for us, that is... I think we were still home by 11:30 :P), we slept in a smidge on Saturday morning. We ended up having just enough time to eat breakfast/drink coffee, get a quick workout in, and get ready before heading out for the afternoon.
The Mr took our car in to get the winter tires put on, while I went shopping :)
I had to get a few gift things -- for our work Christmas party that is this week, and for my Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange
person (more on this in a second...). Despite the crowds, I actually managed to get it all done pretty quickly! Now if only I could get myself sorted for my actual Christmas shopping... :)
After completing my errands, I met up with the Mr & we headed home for dinner:
Shell pasta with chicken sausage, broccoli, garlic, and fresh parmesan cheese -- an old favorite! We ate the leftovers for Sunday's dinner :)
After dinner, we settled in to watch one of our favorite holiday movies:
The Holiday! I know I already talked about it in my Favorite Things: Christmas Movies
post, but I'll say it again -- we just love this movie! We look forward to watching it every holiday season :)
We tried to stay up late enough to watch Saturday Night Live, but both crashed before it even started -- oops!
Sunday was a nice relaxing day -- my favorite kind! I stayed home and got a bunch of things done, while wearing pj's all day:
Yes, I have hoodie/footie pajamas, and you should be jealous -- they're awesome! :)
I did some cleaning, tidying, and some organizing -- all while half watching this on tv:
Ahhhh, The Muppet Christmas Carol -- another great Christmas movie! I hadn't seen it in a few years, so it was fun to reminisce :)
I also packaged up my Gift Exchange present, as well as the present for the winner of the bonus gift:
If you're participating in the Gift Exchange, one of these packages could be heading your way! Guess you'll just have to wait & see! :)
Sidenote: I just love putting together gifts like these! I love all the little things that go into making cute packaging & all the small details that make it special. I really hope the ladies that get the boxes are pleased with them! :)
Sunday evening was pretty relaxed & low key. We stayed in, snuggled on the couch with the pup, and sipped hot tea from dachshund mugs to keep us warm:
It's all about the simple things :)Tell me:
- What was the highlight of your weekend?
- Did you watch any holiday movies this weekend?
- Do you have your Christmas shopping done? Half done? Not started? <--- Someday I will not be a last minute shopper. That day is not today. :)
Have a great day!
