weekend festivities...

This weekend was a whirlwind... but a good one...

Friday was a crazy day at the office... but nothing a little Starbucks caramel apple spice can't fix.


Friday night I finally flew home to Louisville. After 10 days away, to say I was excited about seeing my husband and sleeping in my own bed would be a major understatement.


This was my view of the city as I flew into Louisville... right over the waterfront by the Ohio River... I always love the sparkle of city lights.


I spent Saturday morning at a women's gift exchange at our church... this thing is a serious event... 200 women scrambling to get first dibs on gifts is a sight to see, let me tell ya. Oh, what's that? You like my scarf? Oh, why thank you... me too... My mother-in-law brought it back from South Africa for me... it has this lacey-vintage-feel to it... and I'm in love, just in case you can't tell.


On Sunday afternoon I did some major photo editing... trying to get all caught up before my next wedding on New Year's Eve. I'm getting close...


And then... on Sunday evening... by far the highlight of the weekend... WE GOT OUR TREE!!! My amazing husband agreed to go in the pouring rain so we could finally get our tree up and decorated. He's the best.

And in other news... this is my 500th post. I.have.posted.500.bleepin'.times.on.this.blog. Five hundred times in two years. This either means a) I am an awesome dedicated blogger... or b) I need to get out more. I'm going to go with a)...

How was your weekend?

this sounds like a fantastic weekend! I bet your hubby is thrilled to have you home, too.

Hooray for a tree! In Nebraksa real pines are scarce, so (VERY) unfortunately we have a fake one. But it's pretty anyway. :)

500 posts!! WAY TO GO! Keep it up, girl. :) You're doing good things.
