A Weekend Recap and a Surprise

Happy Monday friends!  Hope Monday was good to you.  Due to sickness and record cold temps this is my first real full week back at work since Christmas break, sure hope I can make it to Friday!  

Do you ever have those kinds of weekends where you stop on Sunday to reflect on it and your heart is just full?  I had one of those weekends this past weekend.  It was such a great one.  So dear readers, here is a little weekend review for you!

Before I left for school on Friday, I packed up the ole Altima because as soon as the bell rang at 3:15, I was going to hit the road for Sylva.  One of my favorite weekends of the year is when I get to celebrate "Freindly Christmas" with Beth, Lori and Sarai.  And yes, I know I spelled friend wrong, we will save that for another post.  I love this tradition we have of gathering in January to celebrate Christmas together.  We rotate houses, eat good food, laugh til we cry and just celebrate each other.  Last year we started the tradition of doing Favorite Things Christmas.  We buy our current favorite things for each other and it is so much fun!  

After a wonderful Christmas celebration Friday evening, we continued the celebration by celebrating Beth's birthday on Saturday!  We opened presents, went to the Casino for a yummy lunch and of course had birthday cake!  I am so very thankful for these forever friends.  And cherish every celebration we have together! 

The fun continued Saturday evening when I met up with some gals at the local Wine and Design studio for some painting, wine and great times.  I loved being able to catch up with these friends and I don't get to see very often.  I can see many more girls nights in our future!  And Wine and Design was so much fun, once I became comfortable with making some artistic decisions!  

Ended the evening Saturday catching up with some of my favorite people, the Lemkes and Amanda!  What a fun and full Saturday! 

Sunday was spent watching the Panthers in the playoffs with the Alfaros.  Sad game but what a great season and then some Downton Abbey with the Lemkes and Amanda.  What a shocking episode.  Loving this season and can't wait til next week.  Although I am not a huge fan of that Edna.  She is no good! 

So now for the surprise...
Later this week I will be posting a giveaway!  I am so excited and hope you will check it out and share my blog with friends!  Also have something exciting in the works with my friend Alisha.  Go check out her blog, Pondering Reality. I love this girl and her heart!  You will love her too!  

Hope your weekend was full and fun as well!  Have a great week friends!
