Weekend recap and thank you

First, I want to welcome and thank all of the new followers to my blog. I’m going to be making the rounds and visiting your blogs as well. It has been a busy few days, but I always try to keep up with those that stop by. I love meeting new people on here and I am really excited to say, “Hello” to you. Please don’t forget to enter my 200th post giveaway. You have until Tuesday at midnight!

I had such a nice weekend. I’ve been working way too many hours and needed a few days of being unplugged to get myself together. I must say that it felt good. Friday, I had the day off and my friend Jessica came to spend the weekend with us. We had such a nice time together. We went to get manicures and pedicures, had some lunch at Nifty Fifty’s and then went to the pool. It was nice to see the sun, since it has been raining constantly.



Friday night, our friend Kelly came over and we got ready for a girls’ night out. The weather was awesome, so we headed to The Deck. We were outside all night and had a blast. We danced, talked to some fun people and just really enjoyed ourselves.



Saturday, Geof, Jessica and I went to run some errands, grabbed lunch and then headed to the pool. It was another beautiful day and the water felt awesome….not too hot, not too cold. After the pool, we got some movies and came back to our house and had a movie night. We watched Confessions of a Shopaholic and The Uninvited. Confessions wasn’t very good (in my opinion) and I enjoyed the book much more. The Uninvited was surprisingly good and very creepy.



Today, we had to drop Geof off at the train in Delaware and afterwards we had lunch at Olive Garden and then did some fun, tax-free shopping while in DE. We came back here and I had to get ready for dinner with my mom and her boyfriend. We went to a diner in New Jersey and it was really good. It was so fresh and everything was homemade. I had the best chicken orzo soup and some delicious rice pudding. After dinner, I went back to my mom’s for a little while and she has 2 different birds that have built nests in her yard. They’re so cute! I came back home, watched some Michael Jackson videos (I’ve been watching them on and off all weekend) and spent some time with the dogs.




Tomorrow, it is back to work and I need to figure out what is wrong with my car. It’s in the shop and I’m hoping it is nothing serious. I had gotten it back on Thursday night from getting the brakes done. On Friday, it started to overheat and I smelled anti-freeze. I took it right back to the shop that night and now I'm just waiting to hear what’s wrong.

Sounds like such a fun weekend!! Oh my gosh did you have to mention Olive Garden??? Now I can't stop thinking about their breadsticks!

Thanks for the movie reviews, too. I am so disappointed that everyone is saying Confessions isn't good. I love those books!

I'm not plannning on watching Confessions because I love the books so much I just can't see how the film could match up to it if you know what I mean? xx

Sounds like an amazing weekend...visiting two different states, ha! Seriously, I agree with D.A.R. I have never really been a fan of Olive Garden but these past few days I've been craving it..MIGM says I'm turning southern'..haha!

I loved the shopaholic books, but was a little disappointed but the movie too

What a fun weekend. I've possibly told you this before but I love it that you still have girls nights with your friends. So many of my friends get married or a boyfriend and drop off the face of the earth. I can't imagine not having girlfriends. They're so fun.

Confessions... Oh I know. I was disappointed too.
