Hello lovlies - welcome back to Monday. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and got exactly what you wanted/needed to get accomplished. Here is a quick run down of our very very busy weekend:
Friday night - got off work at 4:30 (30 minutes early - win/win), ran home and helped hubby get dinner started, then went to have my nails done at a place I frequent often. Once they got me settled, they asked if I would like a glass of wine to enjoy while being pampered. Um... well duh - yes, please!!! :)
After a couple of hours of being pampered, I went home and just relaxed the rest of the night with hubby. Saturday morning came an impromptu yard sale thanks to our neighbors next door and across the street from us. They had asked us late Friday night if we'd like to join in, so we said sure, and was able to get rid of a TON of stuff out of our garage. We can actually walk through it again without running into boxes - LOL After that, we just ran some errands, quick trip to Costco, a bite to eat and then home and down for the night watching Christmas movies.
Sunday we got up at 7 a.m. (again - blah) and worked non-stop on getting the house cleaned, some cooking and laundry done and hubby mowed the yard. Hard to believe we are still mowing grass here in Texas in December - UGH. After that, we decided to run to Lowes and take a look at some riding lawn mowers and while we were out, we came across an iron place on the main road and decided to stop in to see what they had. They had TONS of Metal Christmas things that you hang on your house or put in your yard so we came home with a beautiful poinsetta to hang on our house and LOVE it. Though not exact, it is similar to this:
The rest of the evening consisted of going out to an early dinner due to being too exhausted to cook after working all weekend long. We went to one of our favorite places, Sharky's:
Who can beat a view like this while having dinner:
These are their "Shark" bites and are delicious! They are grilled shrimp with bbq sauce and wrapped in bacon and served with Chipotle sauce - OMG YUM!
After a nice relaxing dinner, and a glass
or two of wine, we were back at the house and getting ready for the new week ahead. So... what about you? How was your weekend? Did you do anything special? Can't wait to hear all about it and catch up!
Thanks for stopping by to say hello and have a wonderful Monday! :)
Lots of love and hugs,
