Weekend recap

Friday, we had our friends Jess and Franklin over and just relaxed and chatted the night away. We were going to watch a movie, but never did since it got so late. It was a lot of fun and nice to have some serious laughter.

Saturday, I had skating and then my mom and I went to the movies to see This Is It. The movie actually exceeded my expectations and was done so well. I never realized what a perfectionist Michael Jackson was. If the concert had ever come to fruition, it would have been amazing and definitely would have made history. If you’re a fan of MJ, I highly recommend it. I would actually go and see it again. It was 2 hours, but it went by so fast. One of his guitar players, Orianthi Panagaris was simply incredible. She could take most men on with her skills. It actually made me wish I could play the guitar.




Orianthi Panagaris and Michael

After the movie, my mom came back to our house to relax with Geof and I. I got some supplies to make the wine glass project that Lis posted and can’t wait to try it. Crafting is something that I would like to do more of.

Sunday, Geof, my mom and I went to an arts & crafts show at the local Penn State campus and it was great. They had a ton of vendors selling all sorts of goodies. My mom and Geof bought some fudge and jams/spreads. I bought a really cute “C” pink/green/black/white Christmas ornament, cashmere houndstooth scarf, pearl earrings and bow headband. Everything was very reasonable and I was so pleased with what I got. We left the show, went to Linvilla and walked around for a bit. We got to feed the deer and then visited the farmer’s market and picked up some fruit and goods from the bakery.



You can't see it that well, but that ornament has green polka dots on it and I love it!

Geof and I came home and watched some football and caught up on shows we had on the DVR. We had beautiful weather all weekend and it was nice to I got to spend so much time with my mom and Geof. I love family time like that.

My parents saw the movie and LOVED it. I haven't decided if I want to see it or not, I'm more of a rent it kinda girl.

i saw the movie about a week ago. i loved it too. glad you liked it. yeah Michael is a perfectionist but he is not mean about it. the people that work with him want to do their best anyway.

I wondered if This Is It would be good. The previews looked really good and even though I was never really a fan of Michael Jackson's, I loved hearing all of the music in the previews.

You got some great items! I love going to shows like that. That scarf is fabulous (and I love scarves so much). I also think the headband and pearls are classic. And the Christmas ornament - I buy probably at least 5-10 Christmas ornaments every year, because I just can't help it. I love Christmas so much.

Thanks for the link to that dress on my post! I absolutely loved that one and even though it is a bit pricy, maybe it will go on sale or something because it is gorgeous! You have great taste. Hope your week is going well!
