Weekend Shenanigans

January 20, 2014

Happy Monday!

This weekend was rather busy. A sick child derailed my plans to complete a service project for Habitat for Humanity with my Sorors on Monday. Poor thing, he got struck with the infamous stomach virus that has made its way around. I thought we were in the clear but apparently not.

Friday evening my SIL came in town with her besties to look for a wedding dress. They ventured down to Bridals by Lori as in “Say Yes to the Dress.” Unfortunately I was unable to attend because I had already committed to helping out with a fundraiser my chapter was having for our Debutantes. She found her dress and it is GORGEOUS and I had a great time with my line sisters.

Saturday evening I was scheduled to attend some events but my husband needed to use the car and I was just plain tired. At some point everyone laid down for a nap and I awoke while they were still sleeping. I used that very RARE and precious time to spend some time alone comfy on my couch watching a Cosby Show Marathon. Sometimes it truly is the small things. It only lasted about 2 hours but it felt like an eternity.


Sunday, I woke up early and placed some dinner in the crock pot. My SIL and her besties were headed out again to find bridesmaids dresses. My SIL is one of those people that managed to master the makeup videos on YouTube and while she was “beating” her own face I asked for a slight “beat” and she obliged.


My Chapter was hosting a Sisterly Relations activity at No Mas Cantina, a local Mexican restaurant downtown for some fellowship and food. After I was all made up I headed out to No Mas. I looooooove my Line Sisters. WE take advantage of all opportunities to take photos!

Sunday evening, I made it home and relaxed, and had movie night in the theater with my SIL and her friends. Finally watched The Butler. What an awesome movie.

So, that was my weekend. Did you make Monday a “day off” or a “day on?” How was your weekend? Has that nasty virus found its way to your house?

    It really does not get much better than a Cosby show marathon while your kids are sleeping. I may have a slight school girl crush on Theo. And 2 hours is an eternity! That’s a good break! We still haven’t seen The Butler. I need to RedBox that before the Oscars. I saw your makeup look on FB and that is such a pretty pink lip color!

    No, nasty viruses because we haven’t ventured outside. This weather is too cold for JJ and Moo. Can’t risk bronchitis or a respiratory infection. We haven’t had to pull out the asthma meds since before Thanksgiving and I’m hoping it warms up a bit so that can continue.

    Glad you had a great time with your line sisters. All this talk and seeing pictures on FB, blog and IG has me looking into sororities. My college didn’t have any when I started because they were a new campus, but it’s something I’ve always been curious about.
