Weekend recap

I know this is very late, but I didn’t want to break my streak of posting about each weekend. Since we had a "midweek weekend", the real weekend was much more laid back. Friday, Geof and I went to dinner at Outback and then came home for a night in front of the TV and played with the dogs.

Saturday, I got together with my friend Barb who is expecting her 2nd baby boy in September. I’m thrilled for her and Nate! We headed off to the mall to browse around and grabbed a quick lunch at Ruby Tuesday. I dropped her off, came home and then my mom came over to visit Geof and I. Since it was her weekend, I picked a movie that I knew she would love. We watched A League of Their Own. I knew a picked a winner as soon as it was over because she kept going on and on about it. It really is a great movie.



Sunday was Mother’s Day and we took my mom to brunch at a restaurant in Media called, Generation’s. This place blew me away. We went into the room with the buffet and my eyes popped out at all of the food. You could also order fresh pancakes, omelettes and waffles from the server and it was all included. We left completely stuffed and didn’t eat much the rest of the day. We got my mom a purse that she wanted as her gift and she absolutely loved it. She was so cute toting it around.


This is the purse we got for my mom

The weather was beautiful all weekend and it was nice to take it easy for a change.

Sounds like a lovely weekend. I've never seen A League of Their Own the whole way through. I've tried, a dozen or so times, but something has always stopped me. It's just not in the cards I guess.

I think I can still remember the song from it, I used to watch it so much. "We are the women of the All American League, we come from..." Okay, too much?

Love that purse you got for your mom. And Outback? Yummo! What I would do for some of their bread right now, okay and a bloomin' onion too!

Your mom is so hip to carry such a cool purse like that! I love it, so fun!

Generations sounds DEEELICIOUS! Perhaps we should change our dinner date plans? Tell me what you think? I checked out their dinner menu and it looked yummy - but the brewery idea is fun too. It doesn't matter where we go, we will have fun regardless!

Have a wonderful evening! xoxo
