What a fantastic weekend! The weather was beautiful at 70+ degrees each day...what more could you ask for!!! Hubby & I started out with a quick, casual dinner on Friday night at a local hole-in-the-wall pizza joint. They have fantastic pizza and I just love going there. After dinner we met up with some friends for drinks & dessert at a local fondue place. We had a great time and it's always so great to spend time with good friends.
Saturday was probably the highlight of the weekend for me. This was the weekend for all the local gift stores, home decor shops, & flower shops to have their Holiday Open House! My mom picked me up at about 8:45 on Saturday morning and we spent all morning and most of the early afternoon just traveling around to the various stores oohing & aahing over this seasons new Christmas decorations. I came home with some really great stuff & now I'm definitely excited to put it all out! However, I think I will try to restrain myself and wait a couple more weeks! I just love shopping with my mom & not only did we buy some great things but we also got some great decorating ideas!
After our Christmas shopping adventure, we headed back down to my parent's house where Hubby had already headed with Bogey. The weather was just too nice to stay inside! Bogey got some well-deserved and much-needed time at my grandparent's pond & was able to burn off an excessive amount of energy. We were also able to have a great dinner with my parents at Hawgwild BBQ which is one of the BEST BBQ places I've ever eaten and definitely the best BBQ in Southwest Missouri. They are well-known for their BBQ nachos and they are sooo yummy! After dinner we stopped back in at my parent's house to have a quick run-down of the 1000+ pictures they took in Tahiti. What a magnificient place!!! The pictures they took looked like they came out of a travel magazine!
Today we had church, grabbed a nice lunch out & then came home to work a bit around the house. I did some laundry and grocery shopping while Hubby worked outside in the yard. It was just absolutely beautiful outside & what a blessing to have such nice days in November! We also had small group & were able to spend some quality time with a great group of people!
Overall it was just such a great weekend to relax and regroup before starting up another work week. We seem to have a fairly normal schedule this week, but we all know that can change in a heartbeat!
