Weekend Update!

This weekend was SO MUCH FUN!  Seriously, it was incredible...It kind of started on Thursday night when Patrick and I went to see The Odd Couple at the Nashville Dinner Theatre.  The play was really funny, and it was definitely a fun date night!  Oh, and FYI, this place is really neat!  Definitely check it out.  Here are a couple of pics I took that evening:

Friday night I met Kathleen at Calypso Cafe for dinner and then we headed to see Just Go With It!  Ya know, the movie with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston?  It was really funny, and really cute!  Guys, girls, moms, dads, everyone should see this movie! 

On Saturday, I had to work in the morning, and then I had to run on the treadmill before rushing home to meet my mom, who was so graciously cleaning away at my condo.  Yes, for those who either think my mom is crazy or I am ridiculously spoiled, my mom comes to my house once every tax season and cleans it from top to bottom.  You have no idea how wonderful and helpful this is this time of year.  I honestly barely have time to go to the grocery store, so the fact that she takes this one thing off my plate, makes me a very happy girl!

After she finished cleaning and I finished working, we headed to do what we do best:  SHOP!!!!!  We went to Blush, Target, Old Navy, DSW, Off Broadway, White House Black Market, The Limited, and Macy's...shew!  That was exhausting just typing it.  Both of us got some great treasures, but I think we both agreed that maybe we need to wait a few more weeks before the really good Spring stuff is out. 

On Sunday morning, after doing my 5 mile long run, Patrick met us and the 3 of us went to church at the same place we went a few weeks ago.  After church, we had lunch with Adam, Alacia, and Hannah at Allium.  BTW, if you haven't been there for Sunday Brunch, DO NOT pass go, DO NOT collect $200!  Head straight to that restaurant next week for Brunch!  It is excellent!  We will definitely be going back!

After lunch, my mom and I went to a Gold Party.  Have any of you heard of this concept?  They are similar to Pampered Chef, Thirty-One, or Mary Kay parties, except instead of buying something, you sell stuff and actually leave with cash.  I searched through all my old jewelry and was able to find 4 rings (leftover from my pre-teen days), 2 sets of gold nugget earrings (why did I ever think that was cool?) and 2 small bracelets.  For all of this, I made $170...enough to pay for all the shopping I did on Saturday night!

After all this fun, it was time for my mom to head back to K-Town.  =(  We had such a wonderful time, and I am so glad I got to spend some time with her.  There's no one I'd rather go shopping with than my Mama!  =)

Usually, Sunday nights are a little difficult for me because I am dreading the weekend coming to an end.  However, this weekend was a little different.  On Sunday night, I had plans with Maggie to see Never Say Never, the Justin Bieber movie.  Yes, you can say that I am completely ridiculous all you want, but I will stand by this statement for a very long time:  It as an excellent movie!  It was funny, it was touching, and it was very interesting!  I definitely recommend it whether you have Bieber Fever or not!

Finally, after a busy, busy weekend, and not nearly enough QT with my beau, I wrapped up the weekend hanging out with Patrick!  It was nice to just relax and watch a little TV before the work week officially began.

I hope you all had fun weekends!  Head back next week to see what that weekend holds!

Your weekend sounds like it was a blast. I LOVE the fact that your mom comes to clean during tax season - what a blessing and great mom!

Never heard of a gold party. Umm...I would love to get some money for all my old jewelry. Seriously - what I was thinking with all that stuff I bought in high school!?!?
