Hey chickadees! In case you missed it via Instagram here's a recap of my weekend. It started off jam packed and then eased into gloomy day relaxation with movies, cookies, fur babe snuggles and lots of time with my handsome.
Friday night was spent at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of The Year Gala. Will's cousin was up for the title of Woman of The Year. Family came in from out of town to support Jennifer - this is and was a big deal, y'all! Jennifer, a family physician, has watched both her daddy and husband fight and BEAT cancer. We learned just how hard she and her team worked their booties off. She raised over $40K for LLS and SHE WON the Woman of The Year title!!! It was such a cool event to be at. One thing they could have done better was finding napkins that absorb tears, maybe too much starch in them? ;) I definitely shed my share when watching the videos about the boy and girl of the year. It's so hard to know those sweet children are suffering with such a life sucking illness. Those strong & sweet kiddos are such an inspiration!
The gala had a photo booth and we took full advantage of the fun. We're obviously photo booth rookies though - we were definitely not ready for some of the pics (check out the second on on the left, we were trying to change places!)
I have a serious sweet tooth so cookies may not have been the only sweets taken in over the weekend ::ahem, orange sorbet:: shhhh! ;) On Saturday we had cookies, snuggled up with our pups and watched Jack Reacher. Later that evening things got nerdy and we went to see Star Trek in 3D.
Sunday brought even more movie time. I swear I'm not a super lazy person! One of my fave childhood movies, Hook, was on TV so I couldn't resist watching. I like to start the week off with a fresh mani and pedi so I hooked up my fingers and toes with a couple of my faves from Pretty Please nail polish.
Hope your weekend was lovely! I'd love to find out what you were up to!
