Weekend Update

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a great Monday. I had a severe case of the Monday Blues, especially after the events at Sandy Hook Elementary on Friday. I just couldn't seem to shake it and put a post together about our weekend. I know many bloggers are taking their day of silence today but since I took mine yesterday, here's a quick recap of our weekend. 

The Husband and I stayed close to home this weekend. Friday night we went to dinner with some friends from church. One couple is expecting their second child any day now. Here in Atlanta, there's a restaurant famous for it's labor inducing Eggplant Parmesan. 
Those of you familiar with Atlanta know I'm talking about the one and only Scalini's. 
It worked for her first pregnancy and she was game for giving it another shot for baby number two. 

Here's our sweet friend signing the "official" book. If she goes into labor within 48 hours after eating the famous dish, she gets a gift card and a onesie for the new babe. 
So far, no baby but it was a fun evening nevertheless!

Saturday I spent some time around the house, wrapped a few presents and 
put together my second etsy order together. 
That's right...I have recently opened an etsy shop! Very exciting but it's a work in progress. Once my shop is fully stocked, I will announce it so y'all can check it out! 

Sunday we attended church and heard an amazing sermon followed by some lazy time on the sofa watching MadMen. Sunday night we attended yet another Christmas party. 
I wore this and because it was pouring down rain, I wore my hair up. 
Thank goodness for bobby pins! :)

I recently rediscovered this dress in the back of my closet. I only remember wearing it once before but I am in love with it all over again. Don't you love it when that happens?
I've worn it to two functions in the last four days! 

Such pretty decorations at one of the parties...

And there you have our weekend. What did you do? Anything fun?
Can you believe it's the week before Christmas? Crazy! 
Here's wishing a wonderful and productive week.
