This weekend went by too quickly! A recap.

Friends! Thank you so much for coming to my house warming party {blog hop pot luck} on Saturday! It was so much fun, I loved each and every post, and my smile muscles hurt by Saturday evening. And for those who participated by creating a post and making a drink or dish, thanks for taking the time and the love to do that!

I plan to put all the photos and recipes in a book, and there's also a blog giveaway in our future to win your own copy. More on that later! Now let's get to my weekend recap, shall we?


After reading Carrie's post about self-portraits, I decided to commit to taking a photo of myself every week. I won't post them all here on my blog, but I wanted to share this one. My Instagram caption read: "Doug has gotten pretty good at helping with a ponytail. Will be so glad when I can lift my right arm again!" {Yeah, the shoulder still ails me.}
Anyway, I took that SP just before work on Friday, and even though including Friday in my weekend recap isn't precise, I thought you'd also like to see what I look at while sitting at my desk at my new job. Candy. Chocolate candy. As I will be responsible for purchasing candy for this dish in the future, I figure I'll buy some kind of candy that I don't like. Logical, right?


We had friends over on Saturday for some yardwork and a barbeque. Early in the day I had to make a trip to the grocery store, and on my way out of the neighborhood I noticed a yard sale. Picked up this little porcelain travel iron for $10.


Sunday morning Doug, Carrie and I all went to see The Hunger Games. Carrie had read the book a year ago, then made Doug and I both read it as well. Loved the book, loved the movie. Carrie was so excited - we had to take pictures for her Project Life.

After the movie we had lunch at BJ's Brewhouse...

And later in the afternoon Carrie and I went for pedicures...
Dear Universe: Why is it every time we go for a pedicure I get a technician that cuts me? Seriously? Carrie was in the chair next to me falling asleep and I was wincing in pain and bleeding! {Weird angle on my foot there...and for the record, my toes do look pretty now.}

Good thing I have Whiskers to sooth me.
Isn't that right, angel cat?

Back to week number two at my new job.
I'm learning lots and there is a lot to learn.
Doug and I are both adjusting to me being back to work full time.
It's all good and we are happy. ;o)

Love that Carrie's SP habit is rubbing off on you. When I worked I always had a jar of candy on the counter where people came into my office. I started out buying candy I didn't like but got so conditioned to not going in the jar I could put things I liked and not worry. I've never been cut getting a pedicure, that would greatly deter me!!!

Wow Deb - you had a crazy busy fun weekend! Hunger Games will be next weekend for me. This weekend was fully booked. And I seem to have the same experience with pedicures as you. Love the final result, but never really enjoy the process...

Mom said...

I love your SP! That is such a good look for you! I've been cut twice during pedicures--now I do my own and go to the salon to have them polished. I my "condition" I can't afford the germs!

Don't know if I'll see "Hunger Games" but I'm definitely seeing "Mirror, Mirror" next week! Light-hearted movies are my choice lately.

Have a wonderful week, Sweetie! Love you! xoxo

A really busy weekend,Deb....all sounds fun though.

Sian said...

It sounds like a pretty good weekend, apart from the pedicure, that is. Hunger Games? Not sure if it's for me - tho I'm prepared to be persuaded

Karen said...

You always have the most interesting weekends! My husband and daughter have read The Hunger Games; it's not for me. Tracy's anxious to see the movie. I only go to one nail technician for my pedicures. I've had too many unpleasant experiences, so I'm willing to pay a bit more for a truly relaxing and carefully done pedicure. I'm not so picky about manicures, though.

Everyone is talking about the hunger games here too!
I've never had a pedicure because, well, actually, I hate feet. Hate touching my own feet, could never touch anyone else's and wouldn't want someone else touching mine! Having said that, I always varnish my toenails and look after them but on a list of things to do pedicures doesn't even make the top 50!

Yay for self portraits and good weekends! Thanks for everything yesterday - it was fun to spend the day with you and Doug. Let's do the exact same thing again next week!

My sister has some horror stories about pedicures ... from holidays in Asia, and ended up in minor toe surgical procedures ... yeurkkk!

Anyway, I am impressed with Doug's hairdressing skillz - he is a truly multi-talented human!

Margaret said...

Re The Hunger Games? Didn't you think the movie needed more Peeta?

Loved the Hunger Game books, we also went to see the movie, what a great adaptation, I even liked the added parts of the production of the games "reality show"

Ginger said...

I just finished the trilogy this weekend - I am excited to see the movie, although the whole series was quite gruesome eh? anyway, I will wait to see it when my friend returns from vacation! i agree - buy the chocolate you don't like!
