Weekend Update

We had a great weekend. Friday Husband came home with his fun new set of wheels. It is almost sad that the weather is getting cooler. But we did get to take it out. Let me just say, it might have been a wee bit too cold to really put the top down!

Saturday I went to a scrapbook thingy. My neighbor is like a scrap guru. I was sitting amongst some very creative girlies! I had so much fun. I laughed until I snorted more than once. Despite being Husband's birthday day, I was glad he encouraged me to go. We have been here since late summer and these are the first group of females where I could honestly see being friends with....friends you can go grab a cup of coffee with, go shopping with, and just hanging out!

We celebrated Husband's birthday on Sunday. Of course we made the chocolate chocolate chip cake ever. We made it into the bundt cake.....(I still think of My Big Fat Greek Wedding..every single solitary time I say Bundt...!)

I had custom ordered the most adorable tassel for Livi's room from The Tassel House. I showed her pics of Livi's room. She made the most adorable little fat tassel for the door on her armoire. As a little bonus, she tucked in a little tassel. I didn't get a chance to take a pic, but I will later this week
Anyhow, great busy weekend. Also, I think winter is almost here. It was 29 degrees this morning! Happy Monday, y'all.

one of my fondest memories was cruising in a convertible with my bf in Vermont listening to ABBA!!!
Cool car!!
I'm jealous on the scrapbooking .. I am so behind! I used to love getting the ladies together and having a scrapbook party .. oh wait, maybe I can do it again, now that I'm back here!

Sounds like a great time!! That cake looks delish too! Nice ride!!! It'll be such a blast with the top down come summer.

I remember driving up the California coast a few years back in a rented convertible with the heat going full blast. Sometimes, you just gotta "do it!"

The cake looks yummy and the tassels are so pretty. I'm glad that you're finding some friends in your new location that you can connect with - it makes all the difference.

It looks like you had a wonderful weekend!

Woohoo on some fun girl time!

29 degrees?!!! Brrrrrrrrrr

That's great you found some cool girls--I've been in Atlanta for going on 4 years now, and still don't have very many close girlfriends. They're hard to find!

Hooray for cell phones and free long distance minutes :)

29? Yikes, that has to be cold for you coming from Texas!

Love the new car T. We're contemplating trading in the Beemer for something like that. He SO deserves it!

CC said...

Woah! Look at that car!!

I made a similar looking cake this weekend. I'll post it tomorrow.

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

What a full weekend! Love the car, the cake and that tassel! I'm going there right now!!

You are such an inspiration to me. You always inspire me to do something or own something that I never would have thought of. Thank you!

I said it before and I'll say it again- those wheels are hot! :)

Aha! A bundt cake- one more reason to rebake this recipe. :)

Love the tassle- too sweet.
