Weekend- Why did you have to go??

Hello!!! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!!!!

Starting off Friday I was able to spend time with my wonderful friend, Wendy, as I mentioned before… What a rocker chick she is. She has an image to uphold you know!! :o)



I have an absolutely hilarious story to go along with this evening. I’m not quite sure though whether I’d be able to say it was hilarious if I was on the other side of the coin. Seriously, about minutes before I arrived at her house, she was trying to light candles to make the house smell good and she set her hair on fire. She bent over a little too far when lighting them and you know the rest, haha. I’m trying really hard not to laugh while writing this, because having her retell the story was absolutely hysterical, and I seriously wish I would have showed up at the house a few seconds earlier. I know that sounds horrible, but that so would have been America’s Funniest Home Videos material, lol. Nevertheless her hair is still intact and all was well as we opened the window to air the place out! Ha!

Aside from that we had a wonderful time watching…




and eating wonderful food...

Yummy Baked Ziti


and to die for chocolate chip cookies


I tell you, photobucket is God's gift to us bloggers, haha!!! These pictures don't do her tasty dish and cookies justice :o) It was such a wonderful evening, and I hope I can catch her again when she's in town!!!

Saturday was nothing blog worthy, I bummed around and had some plans Saturday night that fell through..... It felt kind of like a wasteful day, but I guess we need those lazy days every now and then, right??

Sunday, on the other hand, was a fantastic day. It was a wonderful day for an outdoor Art Festival and my mom, sister, and I did just that!

Not a cloud in the sky...


and it was packed...



It doesn't get much better than that! And then we had our fill of yummy mexican food while at the Art Festival. This is my sweet Mom and I...





Then after that we walked around some and of course, couldn't pass this up, haha :o) I didn't include any pictures of me actually sitting there while he was doing this, because I just looked goofy, but here's the artist at work and the finished product, ha!!





And here you have it. Can you see the resemblance??? haha...


Overall, it was a great weekend with gorgeous weather and so nice to be outside and we just had a wonderful time...

Then of course we wouldn't miss...

The Grammys!


What did you all think? Can you say drama? Poor Chris Brown and Rihanna. Overall, I was very impressed and thought it was a great show.

So, there you have it. That's my weekend in a nutshell. Tell me about yours :o)

P.S.

Also, my sister's school VHS (Villages Charter High School) is one of 25 “nationwide” finalists in the Maxpreps National Guard Spirit Challenge Video Contest.

Ooh. 27 Dresses? I don't know how well that upholds Wendy's "rocker chick" image.... ;)Ah well. She's cool. Glad you had a good time!

And the Grammys... didn't watch. I get too restless during awards shows, so I just read Twitter commentary and looked up the Radiohead performance on YouTube the next day. *loser*
