Weekend Shenanigans – The One Where I Hung Like a Champ

Well hey there Monday. You sure did sneak up on me! I woke up on my own at 4:20 am this morning and I had no clue what day it was. So imagine my surprise when I realized it was indeed Monday!

Friday – I stopped at Whole Foods on Friday for lunch. I just love their sushi!


Friday evening we went to set up Chris’s DJ stuff for the party on Saturday. He felt less stressed having everything wired the night before…which was great! On our way home we stopped at Dollar General and we found the cutest stocking for Mac and a cute ornament! Previously Mac and Gracie shared a stocking, but I think it is time they each have their own. Now we just need to find a naughty kitty one for a certain Livvy.


Saturday-  We took it easy in the morning. We had a long day ahead of us! We went over to Chris’s parents house in the afternoon to catch some of the games with his dad. We then headed to La Bamba to grab some dinner and then off to the party!

The party was a lot of fun. This year’s theme was Cirque du Freak, and they went all out on the decor! There were two big top areas, one when you walked in and one on the dance floor. Lots of lights, clowns, animals, and themed drinks. We got home around 4:30 am. I was able to hang like the cool kids all night! Perhaps because I was not drinking. At all. Maybe that is the key to staying up late? Just a caffeine/sugar high! Here is the picture dump…

Sunday – We slept in til about 9:30 am. If you want to call that sleeping in, seeing as how it was about four and a half hours of sleep! We watched a little TV while doing our meal planning, then I headed out to go grocery shopping. I also stopped by Sephora to get a new foundation.

I looked around for awhile and tried out the Urban Decay Naked foundation. The consultant had brought me a moisturizer to try on under it and I fell in love with it immediately. It made my skin feel so soft!!!! I am returning the other one I bought a few weeks ago. It makes my skin tight and dry…everything a moisturizer should not be doing! Haha!

The rest of Sunday was spent preparing lunch (naan pizza) and dinner (buffalo chicken meat balls and green beans) as well as lunch for me for the rest of the week (cranberry curried couscous.) We watched 22 Jump Street and The Vampire Diaries and called it a night.

Of course I can’t leave you without some Livvy shenanigans. She learned how to open cabinets this weekend. Lovely.


Also, she apparently took lessons on how to pose from Glamour Shots.

    Will have to check out that moisturizer.

    Looks like a fun party! Yay for finding a really good moisturizer! Livvy is a very smart kitty if she figured out how to open cabinets!

    Drinking is totally the key to not crashing early!

    I love the stocking, I have to find something for Salem this year since it’s his first Christmas.

    Looks like you guys had a blast. I am surprised you guys didn’t sleep in more! Livvy is looking adorable!

    I need to get some naan or pita for pizzas for Friday. We like to do make your own on Halloween.

    I’m glad you found a great combo for your face. So important and can be total trial and error.

    Love the decor for the party!

    The stocking is too cute!!!! Emry insists that we get a gift for the our 4 legged family member(s) every year. I don’t mind – just gives me a person to blame it on. Hahaha kids are the perfect scape goats.

    I love that you wore your Polite as F shirt!!!! LOVE IT!

    party looks like a whole bunch of fun and the key to staying up late is to not drink…not sure about you but drinking makes me sleepy.

    When I was in NOLA, I stayed up until 3AM and I was dead the next day. But I felt supercool and young!
