Weekend Recap

We had a lovely weekend and sadly I did not take any pictures (am borrowing for this post!).  Seriously, I need to get back on track with the documentation.  And not just using my iPhone.  I need to start using my camera again.  Maybe a new year's resolution?!

Friday night it was Lady's Night in the neighborhood.  We went to Cooper's Hawk and ended up at a local bar afterwards.  We had such a fun fun FUN night just chatting.  Loved every second of our conversations and haven't laughed that hard for a while (thanks Brittany). 

Saturday was a busy one.  I went over to Anne's house for a little cookie decoration party.  Loved everything about this ladies' get together.  I have no experience with cookie decorating so I had a blast.  My cookies did not turn out that pretty but it was fun to have some more girl time and have a few cookies to eat!

Thanks for the pictures Sarah and Anne!

That evening Derek and I went over to Miss Whitney and Kevin's house for a fabulous Ugly Sweater Party.  Would you believe me if I said that we knew nobody (except the hosts of course) and still had the most fun time and felt like we had known this group of people forever?!  It was a night filled with great food, fabulous(!!!) decor, competitive games of boys v. girls, white elephant gift exchange, and fun people.  Perfect holiday party if I say so myself.

Sunday, as you can imagine, was spent relaxing after a busy Friday and Saturday!  Derek and I finished putting up our outside lights.  This was a big deal because we have never done outside lights before.  However, considering we were the only house without lights...we had to get to it this year!  We need to do a little updating to the two trees, aka more lights, aka the ones that Derek did, aka he's going to kill me for calling him and out and suggesting more work, but I have to say I'm extremely happy with it!

Hope you had a great weekend!

So glad you came this weekend - and your cookies did turn out great! Neighborhood ladies night sounds like a brilliant idea, and I'm impressed with your lights... we're totally the lame people with none this year, but oh well. We have some people down the street who totally make up for it by going way overboard, ha.

I just said it on my blog that I have to get back on track with documenting with pictures. I've been slacking so much and leaving my camera at home which is so unlike me, lol.

Anyway, looks like so much! Love that you went to the party and didn't know anyone but the hosts but still had the best time.

Sean and I have never done outside lights either. We're hoping that next year we attempt it, haha. Yours looks great!

I feel you on needing to use my actual camera more. I have been so lazy with phone pictures this year! It looks like you had a great weekend celebrating the holidays and your house looks gorgeous!

Awwwww love this. We are so glad that you all came and had the best time with you. Can't wait to see you all again very soon!

This looks like such a fun weekend. Cookie decoration, what a fun idea. I think I might steal that for one of my parties. hahahahah @ ugly sweater party, I want to go to one since I have one of those ugly sweaters.

By the way, your outside lights look amazing.

Your lights outside your house look great! We didn't put up any light outside this year, but maybe next year :)
