bits of my weekend

Had a fun filled weekend.

Saturday started out with the me enjoying the rain and sleeping in. The Diva had a sleep over so she made sure that she had all of her chores taken care EARLY. She did not want to have any problems when it was time to go

I decided to join my friend at her church on Saturday evening.  She attends Serenity Church Wonderful service and message.

Sunday consisted of picking up the Diva from her sleeping over. Mall shopping for winter clothes for The Diva, window shopping at Hot Topic by The Diva and replacing her cell phone that she gave away at the school.

The highlight of my day was watching Part 3 of the Hunger Games series. I had been waiting for months and the movie did not disappoint!
Now gearing up for Thanksgiving week. Best news is that I am not hosting so I am taking a couple of sides and calling it a day.

How was your weekend?

Friday Favorites

These are a few of my favorite things....

1. Great Scents- I have Scentsy and love it. I have made a new discovery. The Glade Melts work wonderful in my warmer and make the house smell wonderful.

2. Starbucks Hot Chocolate - something about the red cups just gets me in the holiday spirit

3. Supportive Parents - So glad I can call Paw Paw and Pooka for great advice and they are always willing to help

4. Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder - If you wanted the Winter Finale - I am sure you are stilling shaking your head in disbelief this morning.

5. Mocking Jay - can't wait to see it this weekend.

bits of my weekend is a day late, well because of the weekend

The Diva had her 1st School Musical this weekend. She was the Sour Kangaroo in Seussical Jr.

She was absolutely wonderful. Yes, I am Mom and totally biased but she did a great job!

We also had overnight guests. Paw Paw and Pooka stayed with us, which was great. I may have messed up by cooking breakfast because they are talking about coming back. lol

All in all it was a tiring and wonderful weekend. I hope to have videos of the Diva's performance up this weekend.

bits of my weekend

This weekend was all about fun, fun fun

Started off with going to Salute to American Heroes which is a little small town carnival. Lots of rides that cost an arm and a leg and carnie food. We lucked out and scored VIP passes so the food and drinks were FREE!!!! Bought ride tickets for the kid and me to share. She ran into school friends, took the tickets and dumped me. Oh well life with a 12 yr old. I found some Mom and enjoyed some nice adult conversation. Jo Dee Messina performed and a really nice firework show. We ended the night singing "Proud to Be An American" (music provided by the Fireworks show) as we walked to the car.

Sunday we went to church and then went to our High School's production The Addam's Family. It was good. I wish I could have been able to express my self through theater in High School

The upcoming "bits of my weekend" is going to be AWESOME with lots and lots of pictures.
Stay tuned...

bits of my weekend

Busy, busy busy weekend

Started off with The Diva attending her first school dance, a MASK querade dance for 6ht graders. No pictures because she also lost her phone....which I did not find out about until late Saturday night. This kid is going to do cause me extra gray hair this year and I already have plenty.

We then spent 6 glorious house up at the school working on the set build for the upcoming musical. Thankfully some Dad's (3) showed up. We had a model builder and a engineer. Everything was built that day. Sure it's a load off of the Drama teacher's shoulders. Musical starts in 2 weeks. The Drama teacher also told me that Miss Thang was bringing it. She also told me that the Choir teacher wanted her for Varsity Choir. The Choir teacher told her she could have the Diva for now but she planned on fighting for her later on.

Sunday was church fun and laundry, laundry, laundry

Looking forward to the upcoming week
