Weekend recap

Friday, Geof and I had a relaxing night in catching up on our shows. I’m so happy that Melrose Place and Gossip Girl are back. We had a plan to go out, but I crashed on the couch for almost 3 hours making it almost impossible to fall asleep that night. I hate when that happens.

Saturday, Colleen came to my house so that we could drive to our friend Krystie’s baby shower brunch together. The rain was horrible, but we made it there okay. The shower was really nice and some of our other friends were there too. We’re so excited for Krystie and cannot wait until her little bundle of joy arrives. We made jokes that there is going to be a line outside her door for everyone to get in and see him.

Yummy favors and we also got these funny baby pens!

Cutest gift presentation. Adorable baby clothes hung on ribbon with clothes pins!

Delish cupcakes

Something funny/sad (depending on how you look at it) happened when we were getting ready to leave. Coll and I used the ladies room before the long drive back and there was another mom-to-be in there freaking out on the phone about her shower and cursing about everything from the flowers to what a horrible job everyone did. She was livid. We were so uncomfortable and couldn’t wait to hightail it out of there.

After the shower, my friend Kelly was out for St. Patrick’s Day on the annual Blarney Bus bar crawl. I took my own car and met up with her at Durty Nelly’s. The place was insanely crowded and everyone was decked out in the most ridiculous St. Patty’s day gear. A bunch of people even had t-shirts made. There was a mix of regular music and Irish music being played. It was a good time and I was glad to catch up with Kel.

The gang

Saturday night, my mom came over and Geof got home with Dan a little later (they were out all day). The boys brought back pizza and we just hung here. My mom started some soup for Sunday in the crock pot. She rocks!

Sunday, I slept in way late and blamed it on turning the clocks forward. We had my mom’s potato soup and watched The Hurt Locker. I didn’t know if I would like it, but ended up loving it. The movie was so good and made you feel like you were right alongside the soldiers in Baghdad. I can now say that it definitely deserved to win Best Picture at the Oscars. That new show, Minute To Win It was on and we caught about half of it. I couldn’t believe that ridiculous things these people had to do. We liked it though!

I love what you wore to the baby shower!
maybe that mom-to-be was "hormonal".....yikes
I've heard The Hurt Locker is good, but I don't know if I can watch it.
The commercials for minute to win it looked hilarious!

Brown Girl said...

Ha ha, those baby pens are cute! Looks like a fun time. We rented Hurt Locker but I haven't watched it yet, I'm interested to see it.

Michelle said...

I heard about that new show...it's hosted by Guy Fieri, right?

My mom said they had some stunt where you had to move an Oreo cookie from your forehead to your mouth using only your facial muscles. That's too much pressure for me.

What an adorable baby shower you attended. What happened with that mom-to-be is definitely sad/funny. Kind of makes you think about what kind of person she is and why her shower was so bad if she yelling at people.

You've got me wanting to watch The Hurt Locker now, I've been avoiding it... but I think I'll give it a try.

Elizabeth said...

Cute outfit!!!!! Glad you had a nice weekend!! :-)

Mmm, that cupcake looks good! I have to watch GG and MP from last week!

TS Hendrik said...

I saw 'minute to win it' and thought it was surprisingly fun. I've never really cared for Guy, but the show is too crazy not to watch.

Jen said...

What a fun weekend!!! So glad you had a great time at the shower and what fabulous favors. That poor mom in the bathroom. I remember having weird moments like that when I was pregnant! LOL!! XOXO

Gina said...

I am sure it's because I have gone a little nutty this weekend thanks to pregnancy hormones, but I feel sorry for the mama in the bathroom! Poor lady!

Looks like a marvelous weekend!

You look gorgeous and are totally rockin' that Stella & Dot necklace. How is that job treating you? I am going to be making a Spring purchase on your site very soon :)

What a cute baby shower! Love the outfit 'garland'.

Wasn't "The Hurt Locker" surprising? We watched it last Saturday night before the Oscar's and I was really happy that it did so well. We finally watched "Precious" this weekend - HOLY WOW. Intense and moving story!

Wishing you a great week!

I haven't done a bar crawl in FOREVER. Our Gator club has one at the start of the football season. We need to go this year. LOVE the baby clothes bedecked clothesline. So adorable!

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Those baby favors were to cute! I will have to make a mental note for those! Your St Patty's Day pub crawl sounded like a blast! You always have such fun weekend plans....I need you to live closer to motivate me to get out of the house more often!

I snagged my moms Netflix copy of the Hurt Locker...not sure what to expect but after all the Oscar buzz I'm anxious to see it!

The Pink Tutu said...

What a fun weekend! I was wondering if Hurt Locker was good. Cute pictures!

Lacey said...

What a fun weekend! The favors from the baby shower are too cute...love those little pens!

I am so behind on Gossip Girl...I'm just going to have to wait until season 3 comes out on DVD to catch up! I will have to add The Hurt Locker to my "movies to see" list now!
