Poinsettia, Sushi, Nail Art & More...

Hello there my lovely friends and readers! What's not so lovely is this stupid Monday morning. I'm super tired and I can't stop yawning, and I'm ready to bust out of this office, and it's only barely 11 a.m... Sooo, I've still got a quite a few more hours to make it through. I had an exhausting weekend being a part of the Singing Christmas Tree -- it was definitely good, but I'm glad it's over with since we've been working on it since the beginning of September! Now I just need to get some rest! My weekend was pretty much just jam-packed with that, but I did squeeze in a little bit of other stuff!

Also, last Thursday I decided that my Christmas-inspired mani needed a special touch for the Singing Christmas Tree this weekend, so I made a cute little music note on my accent nail! It's not perfect, but it's pretty dang cute, and I love it! And this is nail art #10 of my goal of 10 before my birthday! So that's another goal I get to cross off my list!

And now, here's what my weekend looked like...

Stopped by Kohl's really quick to pick up some stuff I had put on hold the other day so I could buy it with a coupon!
Had some Chick-fil-A with my parents
Sang in the Singing Christmas Tree!
Went over to my friend Lacey's house for a game or two of Pictionary

Went with Mama & Megan to meet a friend & her cute daughter to pick out her flower girl dress for Meg's wedding
Went with Jeff to visit his Granny, cuz she's pretty sick right now :( Pray for her!
Got treated rudely by the tire department at Sam's so we peaced outta there...
Got treated great by the tire department at Costco, so I ordered some new tires for my Jeep
Enjoyed some delicious sushi for lunch!
Rested and watched a movie at Jeff's house (MIB 3)
Went home for some dinner and to pick up my Mama
Sang in the Singing Christmas Tree!
Hung out with Jeff afterwards

Went to church as usual, and saw a pretty poinsettia, still covered in morning dew drops
Had lunch at Genghis Grill with my friends Sara and Kristen
Watched last week's episode of The Walking Dead with my parents
Hung out at Jeff's house for a little bit
Got some Taco Bell
Sang in the Singing Christmas Tree!
Went back to Jeff's house and watched re-runs of "Freaks & Geeks" on Netflix
Came home and passed out immediately...

Jeff's view from his seat on Saturday night...

During dress rehearsal last Wednesday night. Can you find me?! Haha :)

I'm hoping that later this week I can get some better pictures of the Singing Christmas Tree, but for now this is all I've got. So we'll just have to appreciate these! How were y'all's weekends? Were they busy like mine? Or slow and relaxing? Hopefully they were good either way!

Tonight is date night for me and the boy, and I'm looking forward to that. We're going fancy tonight and using this to celebrate our Christmas date, and it's also our 1 year and 4 months anniversary :) I'm planning to wear that outfit above I got from Kohl's the other day, so I hope I look cute! But I mean, why wouldn't I?! I'm sure we'll take some pictures tonight and so I'll share later this week!

Linking up today with all of the lovely ladies from: Covered in Grace, Glitter & Gloss, Pink of Perfection, Sami's Shenanigans, and Synfully Delicious.

Michelle said...

Oh lala check out those nails! What a shame they chipped though. You'll have to put a few dozen coats of clear on next time to protect them - or declare no washing up for the week!
I went out for sushi Friday night its my favourite mmmm yum :)
