As I said above, the weekend was very eventful. We started the weekend off right with a little shopping Saturday morning. My love put off his plans so that he could help me look for shoes, smocks, and bracelets. Well, not so much help me look but more like entertain the small one, while I searched. He’s so funny. If I come out from the dressing room unsure of the item I’m wearing, he’ll simply say, “get it.” I have to laugh and say, “Honey, I’m not questioning the matter of whether I can have it or not, it’s whether or not I look good in it.” Finding clothing isn’t the only goal we have when shopping; it’s to entertain the entire dressing room as well. Putting aside all silliness, it was a successful shopping trip. I did find a few accessories, one being an oversized flower for my ring finger. I love the trend of over sized jewelry; forever I can’t help but feel a little like I’m a kid playing with my mother’s jewelry. Also found a really nice dress, modest and girly, but still a little edgy....not a crazy steal, but it was at least on sale. The crazy steal of the day was a pair of shoes from Aldo. Only they didn’t have the color I wanted in stock....light beige, my fav color for this spring by the way....so sales guy said they can have it shipped to my house, to which I responded, “awesome.” I only hope I still like the shoes once they arrive :/....
After our little shopping excursion, we returned to our home to prêt for our Vehorn-cousin-get-together party. As far as food goes, I went with easy and quick this time around. The most difficult recipe was a veggie pizza, which was titled Easy Veggie Pizza. It was spreading the cream cheese that got me....tip from Chef Logan was to beat the cream cheese first. Aha. It was a truly enjoyable evening. It is very easy to entertain when your guests are entertaining in themselves. And Molly slept like an angel, which helps. Other than a stubborn cork screw and run away meatballs, I’d have to say the night was a success.
Sunday was lovely. Due to this stupid winter, Marshal spent most of the afternoon on the roof of our house. While our super-duper daddy and husband made our home a safer house to live in, we took naps.......a three hour nap to be exact. Molly was tuckered out from all the attention from the night before and I had a head ach from a glass of wine from the night before. Later for dinner, we met my mom, dad, and sisters at the Eagles. Sunday evenings are too short in the winter. I wanted to kidnap my sisters for the week.
